Rotation flaps are a type of subdermal plexus flap. Survival of subdermal plexus flaps depends on the deep or subdermal plexus entering the base of the flap, which in turn are supplied by the terminal branches of the direct cutaneous vessels. Subdermal plexus flaps are raised from areas adjacent to the wound and, in the case of rotation flaps, are rotated into the wound defect.
