Active Comparator: preexpanded flap
Fourteen patients were treated with fifteen '' preexpanded perforator flap surgery '' interventions. The last six cases were evaluated in terms of perforator artery diameter before and after expansion process. The preexpanded flap donor sites' perforator artery diameters were also compared with their anatomic equivalents located in the symmetric side of the body.

No Intervention: control side
In six of the 14 patients, perforator artery diameter of the nonexpanded symmetric anatomical side of the body (equivalent to the expanded site)were measured.
