(47,69,70) Some axial regional pedicle flap may be preferred because microvascular anastomosis is not necessary and shorter harvesting times are needed for this technique compared with the free flap procedure, such as latissimus dorsi and pectoralis major myocutaneous flaps; however, but the bulkiness and inflexibility of these flaps makes them inferior to the vascularized radial free forearm flap.
