Cervicofacial Flap for Basal Cell Carcinoma: 1

A D V E R T I S E M E N T

   
 

A 64-year-old man presented with lesion on his left cheek that had been increasing in size over the past 10 years. Previous biopsy of the lesion showed basal cell carcinoma. 

The plan was to excise the lesion with a cervicofacial rotational flap reconstruction. The size and the location of the lesion posed a challenge for reconstruction with the best aesthetic results.

Patient was placed in supine position, general anesthesia was induced, and he was intubated with orotracheal tube. To prevent dislodging the tube accidently during the procedure, it was sutured to the maxillary mucosa using 2-0 silk.

A circular incision was performed using a 15 blade. The incision was carried down to the subcutaneous plane using electrocautery. The mass was then undermined and dissected from the underlying structures bluntly using scissors with spreading technique. Care was taken to avoid the surrounding nerves using a nerve stimulator.

The mass was then sent to pathology for margin check. Margins were re-excised until cleared by pathology using frozen sections.
