• Rehabilitation of major palatal ablative defects associated with lateral composite resection of the tonsil, base of tongue, and/or hemimandible is a difficult problem. Palatal reconstruction is described with emphasis on the compound medially based posterior pharyngeal, pectoralis major myocutaneous flap, which we have found to be an effective and reliable means of reconstructing these defects.
