Abstract

The influence of the war period has been reflected in an active trend toward the conservation of time in the execution of reconstructive operations. The myriad improvements in the technique of tissue transplantation and the use of large flaps rather than tubed pedicles have been in keeping with this trend. The goal of the complete restoration of function and appearance applies not only to the correction of post-traumatic defects but also to the cosmetic repair of defects created by the surgical excision of malignant tumors and to correction of congenital anomalies.
