Introduction: The surgical treatment of intraoral and maxillary sinus carcinomas requires a reconstruction of the defect. It is preferable to do this in one operation so as to decrease the morbility for the patient and the cost of health care. Because of its versatility the temporalis myofascial flap is used for the reconstruction of the oral cavity, skull base, periorbital region and the maxilla. Material and methods: Here we describe the surgical technique and present our results using the temporalis muscle flap on 6 patients following a partial or total maxillectomy. Results: There were no cases of total necrosis of the flap, although a partial necrosis was seen in four cases. Conclusion: The temporalis myofascial flap is an excellent choice for oral and maxillary reconstruction.
