Abstract

Oropharyngocutaneous fistula is an unfavorable complication that may occur after head and neck reconstruction. The authors used a “stick-shaped platysma flap” technique to close these narrow and deep intractable fistulas. It is a highly efficient and straightforward method to close intractable fistulas with minimal morbidity.
