Introduction: The blood supply of microvascular free flaps is rated as very critical, particularly in the first postoperative days. Only a timely recognition of a complication and its treatment can ensure the survival of the flap. To quantify the postoperative perfusion dynamics, we measured the oxy[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
