Temporal Osteocutaneous Island Flaps for Complete Reconstruction of Cleft Palate Defects

  • David W. Furnas
Conference paper


The temporal osteocutaneous island flap is a fabricated flap based on the superficial temporal vessels, which brings distant tissue into the mouth to reconstruct the defect in a cleft palate (Fig. 1).
