R. F. Mazzola, M. Benazzo

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Patients undergoing excision of oral lesions require complete and rapid restoration of the ensuing defect. The platysma flap supplies hairless, thin and pliable skin for oral cavity, cheek, oral sulcus, oral commissure, alveolar ridge, and lower lip lining reconstruction. It offers the combined advantage of rapid harvest and minimal donor site morbidity.
