An accurate preoperative evaluation of the vascular anatomy is extremely valuable in improving the surgical strategy in perforator flaps and performing safer and faster procedures. The placement of the best perforators and the assessment of their course to the source vessel is essential to define the ideal perforator for our chosen flap. Therefore, after assessing the quality and the dimensions of the soft tissue requirements, the key step in the surgical planning is to find a perforator with a good blood supply, a suitable location inside our flap and an easy dissection route.
