Reconstructive microsurgery using free and pedicled flaps has become a reliable method with a high success rate. Preoperative perforator mapping and intraoperative assessment of perfusion might further reduce flap-associated morbidity.There are various techniques for perforator mapping and perfusion measurement, but no guidelines regarding their use. Therefore, an expert panel at the 40th Annual Meeting of the German-Speaking Working Group for Microsurgery of the Peripheral Nerves and Vessels (DAM) discussed and critically reviewed the current literature. The consensus statement represents the expert opinion based on the available literature and provides recommendations regarding the use of preoperative perforator mapping and intraoperative perfusion measurement.
