Abstract

Reconstructive surgery after extensive tumor resection and radionecrosis in the head and neck regions continues to be a challenge for reconstructive surgeons. Treatment of even small cancers often requires extensive surgery. The often reduced life expectancy of many of these patients, such as thosewith hypopharyngeal cancer, suggests a single-step method of reconstruction to provide rapid rehabilitation of swallowing, mastication, and speech. Prior to the use of microsurgical technique, pedicled fasciocutaneous and muscle flaps were the workhorses for head and neck reconstruction. To reduce the donor site morbidity and improve the quality of reconstruction, free flaps have become the method of choice. The most popular fasciocutaneous flapfor head and neck reconstruction has been the radial forearm free flap (RFF). To reduce the donor site morbidity, however, the use of the conventional lateral arm flap (LAF) and the extended lateral arm flap (ELAF) as the first choice for reconstruction of large soft-tissue defects of the head and neck, as well as in the reconstruction of noncircumferential hypopharyngealdefects, is now preferred. The purpose of this paper is to review our experiences and formulate conclusions concerning the indications, advantages, and disadvantages of the LAF and ELAF in head and neck reconstruction.
