U070 - Pearls in Reconstruction: Rotation and Transposition Flaps and Combination Repairs

Sunday, March 3; 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Learning Objectives

Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Formulate a plan for reconstructive options based on the appearance of difficult defects.
  • Design properly oriented and sized rotation and transposition flaps.
  • Recognize the need for possible combination reconstructive options and execute these in a step-by-step fashion.


Difficult Mohs surgery defects often require flap reconstruction. Rotation and transposition flap may be elegantly designed to repair defects giving appropriate function and cosmesis. Larger and more difficult defects may require pushing the envelope with flap reconstruction or combination repair. This session is designed to give examples and step-by-step reconstructive techniques of several types of rotation and transposition flaps in difficult defects with pearls to improve outcomes. Some of the flaps discussed will be dorsal nasal rotation flap, large scalp and forehead rotation flaps, bilobed transposition flap, crescentic lip flaps, glabellar transposition flaps, and combinations of these with grafts.
