Special Issue Introduction

Soft tissue reconstruction of the distal extremity continues to be a challenging problem for the reconstructive surgeon, requiring careful attention to its complex functionality. The success of extremity reconstruction emphasizes the continuing evolution of our understanding of flap physiology, and underscores the importance of innovation and application of new techniques when faced with difficult reconstructive problems. The goal of this issue is to identify and report on the outcomes and techniques for upper and lower extremity microsurgical reconstruction. This includes thinned perforator flaps, microsurgical techniques of extremity preservation and salvage in patients with devastating injuries or severe medical comorbidities, and the available evidence for choosing individual reconstructive algorithms and practices.
