The purpose of this study is to help in the choice of an appropriate reconstructive technique by reference to the dimensions of the defect, the required functional and esthetic outcomes, and retention of adequate surgical safety margins to prevent primary tumor recurrence. Material and methods: A total of 158 patients were treated. We indicate how the most appropriate reconstructive method may be chosen, with reference to the size and position of the cancer and depth of tissue infiltration. Result: Of all patients, 89 (56.3%) had T1 (lesions up to 2 cm long, less than 1/3). The remaining patients had T2 lesions >2 cm, from 1/3 to 2/3 of lip involvement (50 patients), T3 lesions >4 cm, more than 2/3 of lip involvement (18), and a T4 lesion > 5.5 cm with commissure involvement (1). Conclusion: We share the widespread view that a surgeon who performs a reconstruction using the minimal tissue components required to close the lesion will achieve the best results. Reconstruction does not influence prognosis and overall should be oriented to the defect. Careful, clean, and safe resection of lip carcinoma, with creation of healthy margins, can be followed by functional and esthetic lip reconstruction.

Abstract

The purpose of this study is to help in the choice of an appropriate reconstructive technique by reference to the dimensions of the defect, the required functional and esthetic outcomes, and retention of adequate surgical safety margins to prevent primary tumor recurrence. Material and methods: A total of 158 patients were treated. We indicate how the most appropriate reconstructive method may be chosen, with reference to the size and position of the cancer and depth of tissue infiltration. Result: Of all patients, 89 (56.3%) had T1 (lesions up to 2 cm long, less than 1/3). The remaining patients had T2 lesions >2 cm, from 1/3 to 2/3 of lip involvement (50 patients), T3 lesions >4 cm, more than 2/3 of lip involvement (18), and a T4 lesion > 5.5 cm with commissure involvement (1). Conclusion: We share the widespread view that a surgeon who performs a reconstruction using the minimal tissue components required to close the lesion will achieve the best results. Reconstruction does not influence prognosis and overall should be oriented to the defect. Careful, clean, and safe resection of lip carcinoma, with creation of healthy margins, can be followed by functional and esthetic lip reconstruction.
