Abstract

Posttraumatic periorbital defects require recruitment of vascularized soft tissue and expansion of the soft-tissue envelope. Optimal results following late reconstructions are limited by softtissue contracture, an unyielding soft-tissue envelope, and a poorly vascularized bed. Free tissue transfer provides a permanent simultaneous filler and expander in a hostile posttraumatic environment.
