Abstract

Free flap reconstruction is the treatment of choice after extensive head and neck tumour resection. When treating a patient with a previous disability, such as lower extremity paralysis secondary to poliomyelitis, it is important to offer the best reconstruction whilst preserving healthy extremities. We report the case of a 51-year-old man with a squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the right tongue and a left lower extremity paralysis secondary to an acute poliomyelitis during childhood in which reconstruction was successfully achieved with a left anterolateral thigh (ALT) free flap. © 2011 European Association for Cranio-Maxillo-Facial Surgery.
