Abstract

Three patients reconstructed with free radial forearm flap following hemiglossectomy are presented. The postoperative complications were only paresthesia of the snuff box, and the function of the recipient sites were satisfactory in all cases.
This flap was proved to offer not only the thin and pliable skin for intraoral reconstruction, but also longer and larger vessels for vascular anastomosis. The versatility and advantages of the forearm flap are reviewed and discussed.
