We present a microangiogram study and clinical cases of super-thin flaps based on a transverse cervical perforator. This flap is the first to use the perforator of the superficial branch of the transverse cervical artery. This flap is more useful for providing colour and texture matches than a skin graft, and it is easier to harvest the flap than a free flap because it is a kind of skin flap. © 2004 The British Association of Plastic Surgeons.
