Recent advances in reconstructive surgery for soft-tissue sarcomas
- 52 Downloads
The size and complexity of wounds following soft-tissue sarcoma resection have increased over the years. Many advances have been made in reconstructive surgery during the past 30 years. These advances have occurred because of refined knowledge of muscle, skin, and fascial blood flow and through the development of free tissue transfer techniques. In this review, current methods of reconstruction following sarcoma resection are discussed, and advances are highlighted.
