This animated video, intended for surgical fellows in the field of Ear, Nose and Throat, or ENT, surgery, introduces viewers to the surgical procedure for a radial forearm flap harvest technique.
Resecting tumours of the head and neck may require a skin graft to be harvested from another part of the patient to repair tissue loss. This video highlights the key steps in the harvest of a radial forearm skin graft, including proper identification of important vessels and nerves, and the ideal location sites for vessel and fascia divisions. Special attention is given to the fascia layers deep to the skin graft, to ensure optimal health of tissue in the harvested flap post-op.
