Abstract

Reconstruction of the average oral commissure electrical burn deformity yields good results when performed as a delayed procedure. Our preferred technique utilizes available vermilion for reconstruction of the lower lip by a rotation flap, and a mucosal advancement flap for reconstruction of the upper lip. Since using this procedure, we have not had a recurrent contracture requiring reoperation.
