MRY Ismail, WMW Mustafa, STSA al Junid, NI Hanim: Bernard – von Burrow Webster Flap for reconstruction of midline lower lip defect. Mal. J. Oral Maxillofac. Surg. 2015; 13: 38–42.

Abstract: Carcinoma of the lip is a common problem encountered by clinicians. Surgical intervention is usually recommended. Full thickness defects of up to one third of the lip can be closed by primary closure with excellent results. Local and distant flaps often required in larger defects. Due to the functional and aesthetic importance of the lip, the reconstruction of resulting defect is challenging. We report our experience of using Bernard von Burrow Webster flap to reconstruct larger lower lip defect after ablative surgery in a patient with Clear Cell Carcinoma of minor saliva gland at the lower lip region.
