Pectoralis Major Myocutaneous Flap

Eric Carlson, Andrew Lee

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Pectoralis major myocutaneous flap is a soft tissue reconstructive surgical procedure that provides oral lining and facial cover of soft tissue defects. It is referred to as the workhorse flap of head and neck reconstruction. This chapter talks about the pectoralis major muscle. Three major segmental subunits of the pectoralis muscle are described: a clavicular segment, a sternocostal segment, and a laterally placed external segment. The deltopectoral groove represents the anatomic junction of the deltoid and pectoralis major muscles through which the cephalic vein passes. Bony landmarks of importance in the development of the pectoralis major myocutaneous flap include the clavicle and the manubrial notch and xiphoid process that demarcate the midline of the chest wall. A quantitative assessment of the ratio of the chest wall length to the neck length is important to determine preoperatively when considering the selection of a myocutaneous flap for oral and maxillofacial reconstruction.
