Among plethora of options, the temporalis myofascial flap remains a workhorse for the maxillofacial reconstruction. The inherent advantages include reliable vascularity, adequate size, and proximity to the defect. Although contemporary surgical techniques provide fair surgical results with low rate of complications, their intraoral transposition involve additional surgical trauma by intentional fracturing of the zygomatic arch. We have proposed herein a simpler technique of temporalis myofascial flap transposition into the oral cavity without zygomatic arch osteotomy.
