The technique for using the temporoparietal fascial flap in head and neck reconstruction is described. The advantages and applications of this flap are discussed and illustrated with case reports. Donor site morbidity is discussed, and the details of flap harvesting are reviewed. We have found the flap to be useful in the reconstruction of a variety of defects that require thin, vascular, and durable coverage.
