Abstract

Continuous temperature measurement and recording has been carried out on all microvascular cases performed in the Northern Ireland Plastic and Maxillo-facial Service since 1976. The method is described and illustrative temperature graphs are presented. It is felt to be a simple technique which allows early detection of vascular complications and enhances the safety of microvascular tissue transfer.
