    Factors Associated with Complications in Microvascular Reconstruction of Head and Neck Defects.

    Plast Reconstr Surg 103: 403-411, 1999

       


    This study with data on 200 patients of microvascular free tissue transfers, denotes 98% flap survival rate.

       


    The complications were in 28% and multiple complication in 10.5%.

      


    Factors, previous radiation therapy, 10hrs or more of anaesthesia for surgery, and advanced Charlson comorbidity grade were important in univariate analysis. However, multivariate analysis, Charlson grade was significant. Thus last factor for identifying patients likely to develop complications. In majority patients, haematoma at the sight of transfer is main issue according to G.R. Holt.
