Abstract

Even if the deep inferior epigastric perforator (DIEP) free flap has become popular among plastic surgeons mostly for breast reconstruction, its use to restore head and neck defects has been widely documented in the literature, particularly when additional tissue bulk is required. The aim of this chapter is to present the anatomical feature, the harvesting technique and the specific indication related to the use of DIEP flap in head and neck reconstruction.
