The perforator flap pedicled with the cervical cutaneous branch of transverse cervical artery is supplied by the cervical cutaneous branch given from transverse cervical artery. This thin flap with sensory nerve could be an ideal donor choice for coverage of defects of faciocervical skin and reconstruction of facial organs. Lamberty first used this flap to repair cervical scar successfully in 1979.
