Abstract

A horizontal double skin island pectoralis major myocutaneous flap with preservation of nipple-areola complex is described, a different modification used to reconstruct a complex defect following radical resection of a locally advanced gingival carcinoma. The skin islands are horizontally separated by a distance of 2.5 cm but rely on one vascular pedicle for their blood supply. The muscle between the skin islands provides the soft tissue bulk between the internal mucosal and external skin lining. The need for a separate segmental flap or a split-thickness skin graft for mucosal lining was eliminated.
