Ablative procedures in head and neck region requires composite removal of tissues during excision. This results in compromise of both functional activities and aesthetic mutilation. Reconstruction of major extirpative defects is an extremely challenging task . During the last three decades there has been tremendous progress in the field of reconstructive surgery particularly with the advent of micro vascular free tissue flaps . The transfer of vascularised free tissue is a cornerstone of modern reconstructive surgery which has improved the quality of life in many patients.
