Abstract

The deep circumflex iliac myocutaneous perforator (DCIP) flap with iliac crest was used to reconstruct oromandibular defects in 10 patients. In seven of the patients a dominant perforator was found preoperatively using a Doppler flowmeter; in five of these seven patients a DCIP flap was successfully transferred. In two of the seven patients the dominant perforators were too narrow: one patient underwent a standard osteocutaneous flap transfer and one patient underwent a second flap transfer. In three patients no dominant perforator was found before or during surgery. The freedom of the DCIP flap from the harvested iliac crest facilitates correct positioning. However, to ensure that the DCIP flap can be safely elevated, the presence of perforators must be confirmed preoperatively. Even when a perforator has been identified, complicated dissection may be necessary. We stress the importance of a thorough knowledge of the anatomy of second flaps and of obtaining informed consent to use them.
