Temporoparietal Fascial Free Flap: A Systematic Review.

Ann Plast Surg 2021 12;87(6):e189-e200

Department of Plastic Surgery, University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC), Memphis, TN.

Abstract: The temporoparietal fascial flap (TPFF) is a versatile tool used in head and neck reconstructive surgeries as well as distal upper and lower extremity reconstructions. Depending on the anatomical location and characteristics of the recipient site soft tissue defects, harvesting techniques for TPFF retrieval may include elevation as a pedicle or a free flap, inclusion of the temporalis muscle and/or adjacent calvarial bone as a composite flap. The TPFF as a free flap is not only used for soft tissue coverage of various defects, and it can be used as a joint gliding surface with coverage of nerve and tendons after repair or trauma.

Implications of Free Temporoparietal Fascial Flap Reconstruction in the Pediatric Population.

J Craniofac Surg 2021 Jun;32(4):1400-1404

Department of Plastic Surgery, University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC), Memphis, TN.

Abstract: The temporoparietal fascial flap (TPFF) is a versatile tool that can be used in the reconstruction of head and neck and distal upper and lower extremity defects. The TPFF may be harvested as a pedicle or free flap as well as with the temporalis muscle and/or adjacent calvarial bone as a composite flap.

Reconstruction of a secondary scalp defect using the crane principle and a split-thickness skin graft.

BMC Surg 2021 Jan 18;21(1):41. Epub 2021 Jan 18.

School of Medicine, National Yang-Ming University, Taipei, Taiwan.

Background: Scalp reconstruction is a common challenge for surgeons, and there are many different treatment choices. The "crane principle" is a technique that temporarily transfers a scalp flap to the defect to deposit subcutaneous tissue. The flap is then returned to its original location, leaving behind a layer of soft tissue that is used to nourish a skin graft. Read More

Role of the temporoparietal fascia free flap in salvage total laryngectomy.

Head Neck 2021 05 12;43(5):1692-1694. Epub 2021 Jan 12.

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, University Hospital of Verona, Verona, Italy.

The procedure for salvage total laryngectomy (STL) is burdened by a high rate of postoperative complications as a result of delayed wound healing in previously irradiated tissue. Several observational studies have investigated the role of prophylactic vascularized flaps to aid pharyngeal closure after STL and prevent the development of PCF. The use of a temporoparietal fascia free flap (TFFF) as an overlay flap for STL has been described previously in two published studies and both sets of authors agreed that the most obvious benefit of the TFFF in STL is a reduced PCF rate with low site morbidity and good functional outcomes.

Primary Palate Reconstruction Combined With Cranio-Maxillo-Facial Fixation After Self-Inflicted Gunshot Wound Injury: Critical Incision Planning for Regional Flap Reconstruction.

J Craniofac Surg 2020 Nov/Dec;31(8):2329-2330

Division of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Department of Surgery, University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, NM.

Self-inflicted gunshot wounds (GSW) to the palate result in complex bony and soft tissue trauma to the mid and upper face. Patients who survive these injuries are faced with significant speech and feeding difficulties. Upper and midface fractures open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) is required for many of these patients, and consideration to incision planning is critical in order to preserve a primary option for oroantral fistula repair.
