Indication for management of oropharyngocutaneous fistulas after head
and neck reconstruction using a “stick-shaped platysma flap” technique
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.
