Microsurgery: autotransplantation at the base of reconstruction

2022-09-25T16:22:24.418Z

The number of operations depends on the cause of the disfigurement. Microsurgery makes it possible to take a fragment from the patient's body, which it is possible to do without in order to live normally, and to use it to reconstruct part of the face by restoring vascularization under a microscope. “For example, the mandible can be reconstructed from the fibula (leg bone) or the iliac crest. The latissimus dorsi provides muscle. Digestive mucosa can be used for t



Microsurgery makes it possible to take a fragment from the patient's body, which it is possible to do without in order to live normally, and to use it to reconstruct part of the face by restoring vascularization under a microscope.

“For example, the mandible can be reconstructed from the fibula (leg bone) or the iliac crest.

The latissimus dorsi provides muscle.

Digestive mucosa can be used for the pharyngeal mucosa.

We can thus take bone, muscle, skin, nerves - these are living fragments because they are revascularized - which are put in place in a single operating time"

, explains P Bernard Devauchelle (Institut Faire Faces, Amiens ).

“Multidisciplinary follow-up”

Between the removal for the autotransplantation, the excision of a malformation and the reimplantation on the new site, certain interventions can last twelve hours and require the presence of several surgeons (but only one conductor).

“In people who have already been operated on several times or…
