The technique for the transfer of sensitive skin into the mouth for intraoral reconstruction is described. This procedure may be performed at one or two operative stages. Supraclavicular nerves supply sensation to the tip of the standard deltopectoral flap—which may be swung up with the nerves left in continuity, or the nerves may be divided and anastomosed to an appropriate sensory nerve in the mouth.
