Abstract

Carotid reconstruction combined with myocutaneous flap coverage is a rare and challenging operation. We reviewed our experience to define the indications and outcome of this complex procedure. Clinical data and neurologic, wound, and vascular complications of all patients who underwent carotid artery reconstruction combined with myocutaneous flap coverage over a 17-year period were retrospectively reviewed. Results from this procedure indicate that pectoralis major myocutaneous flap is a safe and durable option for wound coverage in patients who undergo carotid endarterectomy, resection, and/or reconstruction for neck malignancy, previous irradiation or graft infection. Late outcome is favorable with low neurologic, vascular, and wound complication rates.
