Abstract

This case describes a subtotal cricoid cartilage defect reconstructed with a prefabricated composite free flap. A 61-year-old man with a chondrosarcoma of the cricoid cartilage required a subtotal cricoidectomy. The resulting defect was successfully reconstructed with a two-stage prefabricated radial forearm free flap utilizing auricular cartilage. Our case further adds to the evidence that prefabricated flaps are reliable in airway reconstruction. Additionally, this provides another option for laryngeal preservation in patients with laryngeal chondrosarcoma. Laryngoscope, 125:2514-2517, 2015
