Abstract

Introduction: A cervicofacial flap remains the principal method to close defects of the posterior cheek. Schrudde described a variant of this technique, termed the angle-rotation flap, which allowed primary closure of the donor site. This flap has been elevated in the deep plane for the more medial defects. We extend this technique for upper lip reconstruction. Methods: Two cases were reviewed that underwent upper lip reconstruction with the deep-plane Schrudde flap. Results: Two cases are presented to describe the use of the deep-plane angle-rotation flap. The first patient sustained a burn to his upper lip and the second patient had a partially grafted defect following a Mohs excision. Discussion: In patients with insignificant nasolabial folds, the deep-plane Schrudde flap is a good option to reconstruct perioral defects. The utilization of the deep plane improves the blood supply and allows improved contour for reconstruction of deeper defects.
