Skin Flap Failure
 

 

 

This skin flap was performed 48hrs after Mohs surgery to remove a malignant melanoma in-situ.

The whole purpose of Mohs surgery is to remove as little tissue as is possible. Once done, the skin flap repair should yield as little scarring as possible. The unfortunate outcome of this skin flap failure could have resulted in disfigurement far greater than had standard plastic surgery protocols been used to remove the melanoma. The use of Hyperbaric Oxygen treatments prevented this potentially severely disfiguring outcome.
