Abstract

We report initial surgical planning computed tomographic protocols for composite tissue allotransplantation of the face. This complex procedure replaces missing facial structures with anatomically identical tissues, restoring form and function. Achieved results are superior to those accomplished with conventional techniques. As a growing number of patients/recipients have undergone multiple reconstructions, vascular imaging plays an increasingly critical role in surgical planning and successful execution of the operation.
