ALDANA, Celso; MEZA, María Elsa; MENDEZ, Elvio  and  SANDOVAL, José. “LIP LOWERRECONSTRUCTION WITH KARAPANDZIC’S TECHNIQUE”. Rev. Cir. Parag. [online]. 2018, vol.42, n.2, pp.28-30. ISSN 2307-0420.

The region of the lips represents an anatomical area of interest because it has an important frequency of tumoral pathology. Its reconstruction is a challenge since it must achieve a good result both functional and aesthetic. Because of this, numerous techniques have been described for the reconstruction of this area. We follow a technique based on the anatomical preservation of the facial pedicles that maintains the irrigation and the future functionality of the lip.

Keywords : squamous cell carcinoma; karapanzic flap.
