Abstract

The sternocleidomastoid muscle may be used as a muscular or a myocutaneous flap to satisfy the need for viable soft tissue in the reconstruction of some cancer- and trauma-related deformities. The anatomic and technical bases of these flaps are discussed in the context of a single-stage pedicled transfer in oral and maxillofacial reconstructive surgery.
