Özet

Background: Severe facial burn sequelae present a great challenge and maximally test the principles of reconstructive surgery. Three of these basic principles free tissue transfer, flap prefabrication, and tissue expansion are combined to achieve superior reconstructive outcomes. This approach evolved into the prefabricated induced expanded flap, which refers to the staged transfer of expanded supraclavicular skin with an antebrachial fascial free flap used as the carrier.
