The main objective of the Radial Artery Perforator Fascial Flap is to close a soft tissue defect of the hand or the wrist while maintaining the functionality and esthetics of the donor site and the recipient site. In this procedure the radial artery is not sacrificed.

Special attention is paid to the following hazards you may encounter during the Radial Artery Perforator Fascial Flap:

  • Fascial flap vascularization
  • Antebrachial fascia injury during dissection
  • Mesotenon injury
  • Perforators injury by retractors
  • Flap rotation
  • Flap covering by split skin graft
  • Compromised vascularisation

Flap design

Skin

Mark - pivot point

Mark the pivot point of the flap on the skin. The pivot point is located where most of the perforators are expected which is 2 to 3 cm proximal to the wrist crease on the radial side of the flexor carpi radialis tendon.

Inspect

Inspect the skin and measure the distance between the pivot point and defect. This distance resembles the size of the required flap.
