Flap Basics I: Rotation and Transposition Flaps.

Facial Plast Surg Clin North Am 2017 Aug 30;25(3):313-321. Epub 2017 May 30.

Department of Otolaryngology, University at Buffalo, 1237 Delaware Avenue, Buffalo, NY 14209, USA. Electronic address:

In many cases of complex facial defects, because of advanced cutaneous malignancies, primary wound closure is impossible. In these instances, ideal results can be obtained through recruitment of adjacent tissue with the use of local flaps. Advances in local flap techniques have raised the bar in facial reconstruction; however, acceptable results to the surgeon and patient require high levels of planning and surgical technique.

[Classic Limberg Flap Procedure for Treatment of a Sacrococcygeal Pilonidal Sinus Disease - Explanation of the Surgical Technique].

Zentralbl Chir 2015 Oct 20;140(5):473-5. Epub 2015 Oct 20.

Klinik für Allgemein-, Viszeral- und Gefäßchirurgie, Universitätsklinikum Jena, Deutschland.

Introduction: Sacrococcygeal pilonidal sinus disease is frequently encountered in surgical practice. Besides excision only, the current pilonidal sinus guideline of the Association of the Scientific Medical Societies in Germany (AWMF-S3) also recommends plastic surgical procedures such as the cleft-lift operation described by Bascom, the Karydakis flap procedure and, due to the low recurrence rates, the Limberg flap procedure, for the treatment of this disease.

Indication: In our case we show the surgical procedure performed on a 23-year-old male patient, who was previously treated for an acute abscess-forming sacrococcygeal pilonidal sinus. Read More

From the rhombic transposition flap toward Z-plasty: An optimized design using the finite element method.

J Biomech 2015 Oct 24;48(13):3672-8. Epub 2015 Aug 24.

Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, Canada SK S7N 5A9. Electronic address:

In this paper, an optimized design for rhombic transposition flaps is created using a reliable finite element model that assures convergence for stress and deformation results. Defining a general configuration for rhombic flaps, the surgical process of wound closure is simulated for a wide variety of patterns. To address the intrinsic uncertainties associated with modelling skin's mechanical properties, four different sets of material parameters are considered, to investigate statistical measures.

Authors:
J-M Amici

Ann Dermatol Venereol 2014 Jan 22;141(1):7-13. Epub 2013 Oct 22.

Service de dermatologie, hôpital Saint-André, 1, rue Jean-Burguet, 33000 Bordeaux, France. Electronic address:

Background: "Pincushioning" is a complication of post-surgical scarring following use of transposition flaps particularly when surgery is performed on the nasal region. The transposition flap technique is very useful for the repair of certain defects of the tip of the nose, the medial canthus or of the ala nasi. The aim of this study is to define the clinical characteristics of this scarring dystrophy, which we propose to call "early hypertrophy scarring", to clarify the nature thereof and to assess the efficacy of intralesional injection of corticosteroids at the first signs of hypertrophy.

Dermatol Surg 2009 Apr;35(4):613-28

Beatrice Keller Clinic, Sun City, Arizona 85375, USA.

Background: Facial reconstructive techniques are capable of restoring a normal anatomic appearance despite the tissue loss resulting from skin cancer removal. Because none of these techniques recreate the lost tissue, most of these techniques require the removal of additional normal tissue in the form of Burow's triangles to achieve this goal.

Objective: To analyze the quantity and potential variability of redundant tissue loss encountered during the use of conventional reconstructive techniques through the calculation of tissue efficiency. Read More

Salvage of exposed implantable cardiac electrical devices and lead systems with pocket change and local flap coverage.

Ann Plast Surg 2007 Jul;59(1):26-9; discussion 30

Departments of Surgery, Divisions of Plastic Surgery, Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York, NY, USA.

Erosion and exposure of pacemaker (PPM) and implantable cardiac defibrillator (ICD) devices are potentially dire complications, which have classically required the removal of the entire generator and lead systems. This study evaluates a series of cases wherein debridement, irrigation, pocket change, and local flap coverage were used for the successful salvage of indwelling leads after exposure and infection of implantable cardiac defibrillator devices. Patients with skin erosion, infection, and/or exposure of prepectoral infraclavicular cardiac defibrillator devices were treated over a 23-month period between June 2004 and April 2006. Read More

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Sişli Etfal State Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey.

The Limberg rhombic flap is a reliable and widely used technique in head and neck surgery. Since Limberg introduced his original design in 1946, several modifications of the technique have been described. Although a single Limberg flap is frequently used at the face to close small to medium defects, multi-Limberg flap techniques can help the surgeon to cover moderate to large defects of the extremities, trunk, and back.

Double Z-plasty to enhance rhombic flap mobility.

J Dermatol Surg Oncol 1994 Feb;20(2):128-32

Department of Dermatology, University of Southern California, Los Angeles.

Background: Occasionally after a rhombic flap has been designed, cut, and undermined, it fails to transpose into the recipient wound as easily as had been anticipated. This problem may have occurred because of unexpected skin tension due to previous surgery near the operative site or improper orientation of the rhombic flap.

Objective: The purpose of this work is to show how unexpected restriction in rhombic flap movement can be overcome by using a double Z-plasty to increase tissue length. Read More

Department of Maxillofacial Surgery, St. Richard's Hospital, Chichester, United Kingdom.

I have devised a template for the Limberg rhombic flap. I originally designed this template as a teaching aid, but I now find it indispensable in deciding the precise orientation of defect and flap without time-wasting and sometimes confusing trial skin marking. It is a simple, autoclavable device that can be added to any soft-tissue surgical set, and in my experience, it has significantly improved the quality of Limberg flap design. Read More

Double-Z rhombic technique for reconstruction of facial wounds.

Plast Reconstr Surg 1990 Jun;85(6):869-73; discussion 874-7

Section of Surgery, Venice Hospital, Fla.

The double-Z rhombic technique of repair of excisional defects is characterized by borrowing the required tissue from two nonadjacent opposite sides of the defect. Most other flaps borrow the required tissue from a single adjacent region or all adjacent directions. The "sharing" of tissue from two opposite regions minimizes tension in that direction, while not borrowing from the remaining regions prevents the distortion of anatomic landmarks located along that direction.

Flaps that rotate or transpose around a cutaneous pedicle are restrained by the tethering effect of that base of tissue. Flap design that fails to adjust for this force may eventuate in unwanted degrees of tension and/or surrounding tissue displacement. This concept is discussed and illustrated for the rotation, rhombic, and bilobed flap. Read More

The use of single local flaps in the upper extremity to repair excisional defects together with direct repair of the flap donor region is limited by the potential for tension and joint contracture in the flap donor region. The double Z-rhomboid technique is a useful alternative to minimize these problems. The lesion is excised as a rhombus, and the defect is repaired with two opposing equilateral 60 degrees Z-plasties.

An alternative method for the repair of rhombic skin defects utilizing opposing Z-plasties has been developed and applied clinically. The design, orientation, and execution of this method share the simplicity of the Z-plasty. The technique has been employed successfully in over 100 cases during the past 5 years to resurface defects as large as 150 cm2, and it obviates many of the inherent limitations of the Limberg flap.

The Limberg rhombic flap is one of the best techniques for covering a skin defect that is not amenable to straight-line closure. It is a simple, versatile technique that requires only the correct placement of a rhombic donor flap for its execution. An easy method is presented for planning the design of a rhombic flap to take full advantage of all its possibilities. Read More
