• The rhomboid flap is a practical and efficient method of repairing small- to moderate-size surface defects of the head and neck. This flap has the advantage of combining the lateral shift and rotational methods of transfer that aid in the closure of the donor site as the flap is transposed. A description of this flap, the principle of its design, its clinical application, and potential pitfalls are presented.
