Abstract

Introduction Pectoralis muscle flap is one of the most common regional flap used in orofacial reconstruction. Mobilization of pedicle and reach of the skin paddle is a technical consideration. Method Based on the anatomical difference in blood supply to clavicular and sternal head, we elaborate a tecnique to maximise the length of pedicle in maxillofacial reconstruction. Conclusion The proposed technique is reproducible and reliable and possibly increase the indications of usage of the flap.
