Abstract

Transposition of the island pedicle flap is a versatile method of mobilizing tissue from a relatively distant reservoir and moving it across intervening tissue. Advantages are the similar color and texture to those of the affected area, the minimal donor scar, the increased viability with local blood supply, and the potential to camouflage scars into natural skin lines or cosmetic units. In a 73-year-old woman, the lesion of a basal cell carcinoma on her left nasal ala was removed by Mohs micrographic surgery and the resultant defect was reconstructed by transposition of the island pedicle flap. In our case, there were no significant complications and the final result was satisfactory in both functional and cosmetic aspects. Through our experience, we can confirm that transposition of the island pedicle flap is another alternative for the reconstruction of nasal alar defects.
