Surgical excision combined with radiotherapy is the best treatment option... Nevertheless most patients do not undergo surgical treatment due to their poor general condition and delay in diagnosis... On magnetic resonance a highly vascularized soft tissue tumour in the infraorbital region was detected... The resultant defect of 7 × 5 centimetres involved soft tissues of the cheek, lateral side of the nasal region and infraorbital region... The Mitek anchorage system was applied in order to attach the flap to the bone: two Mitek anchors were placed in external canthal region and in frontonasal suture [Figures 3 and 4]... The patient did not present any complications in the postoperative period... The cervicofacial flap remained in a stable position [Figure 5]... The inferior eyelid position did not alter and no ectropion was observed... Slight contour deformity was observed in the infraorbital region due to the lack of volume provided by cervicofacial advancement flap... We consider that coverage of surgical defects in head and neck should be performed immediately as it can restore function allowing radiotherapy to begin faster (in our case the coverage of defect and prevention of ectropion prevented ocular complications in the patient)... Anchors are devices made of biocompatible metal alloys, with the main function being that of uniting soft tissues over bony structures... Suspension of the soft tissue flap in the infraorbital region is important in order to reduce the risk of ectropion or compromise of eyelid competency... Adjuvant radiotherapy is applied in cases of narrow or affected margins... There are no conflicts of interest.

Figure 1: Preoperative image of the patient

Mentions: A 67 year old man was referred to our department for evaluation of a fast growing lesion on the cheek. On examination the lesion appeared as a dark bluish nodule 3 × 3 centimetres in diameter that occupied the entire right infraorbital region [Figure 1]. On magnetic resonance a highly vascularized soft tissue tumour in the infraorbital region was detected. Urgent incisional biopsy in the nasolabial groove was performed and reported as an angiosarcoma.
