Conclusions In cases where normal skin is still present on the axillary and cubital fossa with scar contracture caused by extensive burns, the subcutaneous propeller flap methods and their modifications should be considered one of the most useful versatile reconstruction methods. Namaste flap in addition to the advantages of subcutaneous pedicle propeller flap also negates the disadvantages caused by the use of split skin grafting of the donor area.

Conclusions We conclude that patients with burn sequelae involving the anterior neck and thorax have a significantly greater degree of flap descent and neck extension compared with patients with burn sequelae involving only the anterior neck. Flaps of a larger surface area or use of multiple flaps for neck resurfacing may be considered to avoid significant flap descent associated with burn sequelae involving both the anterior neck and thorax.
