Abstract

The increasing success rate of free flaps along with their reconstructive advantages have got them into regular practice options in Maxillofacial reconstruction. Although associated complications are inevitable in a percentage of patients, it is good postoperative care and monitoring that determines the success or failure of the reconstruction. With early recognition and prompt intervention salvage of compromised flap is possible. The purpose of this article is to emphasise the importance of keeping low threshold for re- exploration in situation of any suspected failing free flap.
