Abstract

A retrospective study of 100 consecutive patients undergoing immediate microsurgical reconstruction after resection of head and neck cancer was conducted, correlated to the economic impact in a heterogeneous group of elderly patients affected by different types of cancer, with different locations and different free flap donor sites.1 Postoperative medical complications were statistically more important in pulmonary and alcohol patients in negatively affecting the outcomes and true costs of microsurgical procedures.
