Which exits the posterior triangle superficial to the levator scapulae. The DSA supplies the caudal portion of the trapezius muscle. It emerges between the rhomboid major and minor muscles or less commonly between the rhomboid minor and levator scapulae {dotted line*). Additional arterial supply to the trapezius muscle is derived from the occipital artery and the intercostal perforating arteries, which emerge in the paraspinous region.

It is unique among the regional musculocutaneous flaps in that it is superiorly based; therefore, gravity does not cause the flap to pull away from the recipient bed as readily as is the case with other regional flaps with a dependent muscle supply. The success of this flap in the "problem wound" is enhanced by inserting the flap along its entire path to the site of the defect, even if intervening skin must be excised to do so. The poorer aesthetic result of wrapping the flap around the neck is counterbalanced by the increased chances of successful wound healing.

Pectoral n. FIGURE 1·10. The primary vascular supply to the pectoralis major muscle arises from the thoracoacromial artery. which is a branch of the second part of the axillary artery. The lateral thoracic artery also supplies some degree of vascularity to the pectoralis major muscle. the extent of which is controversial. The lateral thoracic artery is variable in size and its contribution may be completely replaced by the lateral intercostal perforators. The medial and lateral pectoral nerves supply motor innervation to different regions of the muscle.
