Abstract

Closure of large or cosmetically important surgical wounds is often a difficult problem. The utilization of contiguous island flaps—the double V to Y technique—is evaluated as a primary method of closure. The results obtained with this technique were of high cosmetic quality in all areas of the body in which surgery was performed. Use of the technique avoids tissue distortion, cosmetic defects, grafting, and later reconstructive surgery.
