Profunda Artery Perforator (PAP) Flap


The profunda artery perforator (PAP) flap is a surgical procedure used for breast reconstruction after mastectomy. It involves the transfer of skin, fat, and blood vessels from the patient's thigh to the chest area to create a new breast mound. The blood vessels are reconnected using microsurgery techniques, ensuring adequate blood supply to the transplanted tissue.
