Abstract

The radial forearm free flap is one of the most commonly used free flaps in reconstructive surgery. It is a recognized option for facial reconstruction internationally, but, to our knowledge, it has not been widely used in the Caribbean. We present a patient who posed a difficult reconstructive problem, for which the radial forearm free flap was the ideal solution, utilizing the flap's features of a long length of pedicle, large area of coverage, minimal tissue bulk, and options for further cosmetic revision.
