Abstract

Our experience thus far indicates that the island cheek flap is a satisfactory reconstructive method for small but critical defects in the upper aerodigestive tract. The mucosal lining is an ideal replacement for the lining of the mouth, pharynx, and esophagus. Only a single stage procedure is required. The surgical technique is relatively simple and does not unnecessarily prolong an extensive operation for tumor resection. We have found the procedure to be reliable with no instances of flap loss or necrosis.
