Subcutaneous tissue flaps: Theoretical principles and clinical applications

F. De Lorenzi, L. Vaienti

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The paper examines the anatomical principles and clinical applications of subcutaneous tissue flaps. This tissue, located between the dermis and muscular aponeurosis, is an anatomical entity supplied by a well-developed vascular network. Two examples of the application of the principles of the de-epithelialized 'turnover' flaps in the hand and leg are presented. The reasons for their use and their advantages are briefly discussed.
