Publication/Presentation Date

Abstract

Interventions to achieve optimal wound healing challenge the skills of all health care professionals. Although most wounds are best managed by appropriate nursing intervention outside the OR, some complex wounds require more expeditious closure to ensure maximum preservation of vital structures and their functions. Microsurgical transfer of vascularized tissue (ie, flaps) often is the only method of achieving immediate wound coverage. Perioperative team members who treat such wounds must be aware of the distinct attributes and potential morbidity associated with flap procedures.
