• Paramedian forehead flap pedicle division after 7 days using laser-assisted indocyanine green angiography

    One year ago - By Journal of Plastic, Reconstructive & Aesthetic Surgery

    The paramedian forehead flap is a major workhorse for reconstruction of medium to large-sized nasal defects. The tissue bridge that results from the vascular pedicle results in significant cosmetic deformity, with associated social and occupational costs to the patient.

This study was performed at a tertiary care center from April 13, 2018 to March 22, 2019.
