There is not a cookie cutter approach to wound management and wound reconstruction.
Wounds can be made for us, through trauma, necrosis, etc; or they can be made by us. Every wound is different and as reconstructive surgeons, we should take a step back, so that we get the best outcome, not only for our patients and clients, but also for ourselves. We are going to take a case based approach to wound reconstruction. It is not only the removal of a mass that we need to consider, but also closing the defect without compromising our resection or the outcome for our patients.
