Using an experimental model, the effect of a staged division of the pedicle of aflap on vascularization from its bed was studied. This delay procedure seemed to stimulate the ingrowth of a greater number and larger size of vessels-toenhance the blood flow from the bed with significantly greater tissue survival in the flap after complete divisionof the pedicle.
