Abstract

The reporting of the outcomes of flap reconstruction is often based on numerical success rates. Whilst this remains a useful variable with which to measure success, it is limited in its ability to reflect the complex processes involved. The lack of consistency in the categorisation of outcomes of flap reconstruction in the head and neck could potentially lead us to lose the opportunity to fully capture the implications of its success or failure, or both. We propose a classification that moves away from primarily reporting the results of its binary nature, and focuses more on the process of reconstruction, particularly in the head and neck.
