Reconstruction and Soft-Tissue Management of the Trunk

Abstract

Reconstruction of the trunk (including the chest and abdomen) as well as the upper and lower extremities can be challenging when presented with defects not amenable to primary repair by direct tissue reapproximation. Many operative techniques have been designed to provide surgeons with the ability to manage and reconstruct complex post-surgical defects. Smaller defects can be treated with skin grafts or adjacent tissue transfer, whereas larger defects typically require pedicle or free-tissue transfer to repair the operative defect. This chapter is written with the understanding that complex wound reconstruction may require a multidisciplinary team approach involving the expertise of dermatologic, plastic and reconstructive, and oncologic surgeons.
