Background/purpose: In this study, we investigated outcomes for conventional deltopectoral (DP) flaps and L-extension deltopectoral (L-DP) flaps in head-and-neck reconstructions. Materials and methods: Twenty-three conventional DP flaps and 10 L-DP flaps were created in 33 patients. The latter flaps were applied with no delay. The flaps were folded only in the L-DP-flap group. Seven of 10 L-DP flaps were folded to become bilayered flaps in order to repair full-thickness defects.
