Example text

Indirect musculocutaneous perforator flaps will have to be raised by opening the deep fascia, splitting the donor muscle, preserving its other vascularization and motor innervation, and eventually, exposing its source artery. In a direct perforator flap, like the groin flap, the perforators do not run through a specific intermuscular septum. A specific septum is not looked for and the microsurgical technique is different from the technique used to harvest a septocutaneous flap. Perforator flaps have allowed the transfer of the patients’ own skin and fat in a reliable manner with minimal donor site morbidity for more than a decade.

The perforator dissection proceeds through the muscle until a pedicle of sufficient length and with sufficient vessel caliber is obtained to allow microsurgical anastomosis. This usually occurs when the perforating vessels join the descending branch of the inferior gluteal artery. The sciatic nerve is usually not visualized. Some small sensory branches of the posterior femoral cutaneous nerve may be divided in pedicle dissection. The typical pedicle length is 8 to 11 cm, the arterial diameter greater than 2 mm and the venous diameter is 3 to 4 mm.

This allows for the thicker part of the flap to lie medially on the chest wall. The operating microscope is brought into position. For the venous anastomosis, we use an anastomotic coupling device. The coupling device makes the anastomosis easier and faster, and has the additional benefit of stenting the vein open after the vessels are joined. The arterial anastomosis is typically performed manually with interrupted sutures. After the anastomosis is complete, the flap is checked for bleeding and capillary refill.
