Free flap monitoring protocol


Kruse, A L D; Luebbers, H T; Grätz, K W; Obwegeser, J A (2010). Free flap monitoring protocol. Journal of Craniofacial Surgery, 21(4):1262-1263.

Abstract

In microsurgery, the successful salvage of free tissue transfer is dependent on the rapid decision to return to the operating room. Therefore, a free flap monitoring protocol is presented, including checking color, temperature, capillary return, and signal from a handheld Doppler ultrasonograph in an intraoperatively marked skin area directly over the pedicle.
