ALDANA, Celso et al. Orbit defect reconstruction with pre-laminated temporal superficial fascia flap. An. Fac. Cienc. Méd. (Asunción) [online]. 2021, vol.54, n.3, pp.173-178. ISSN 1816-8949.

The superficial temporal fascia flap is versatile for the reconstruction of tissue defects located in the upper and middle thirds of the face, in the orbital-palpebral region, in the oral cavity, at the base of the skull and at the mandibular level. In our experience, it is a safe option for complex cavity reconstructions. In this article the authors present the case of a patient in whom an orbit defect was reconstructed with a pre-laminated superficial temporal fascia flap.

Keywords : Prelaminated flap; prefabricated flap; superficial temporal fascia; orbit reconstruction; facial reconstruction..
