Abstract

We present a case report of a patient who underwent complex reconstruction of the pharynx and esophagus with microsurgical anterolateral thigh flap and deltopectoral flap for reconstruction of an extensive defect in the cervical region. We will discuss a little about the deltopectoral flap, which was the first choice for the reconstruction of cervical defects in the past, but nowadays it is still an important tool for head and neck defect reconstruction.
