Having a firm regulation like this discourages well-meaning colleagues from asking the microsurgeon to allow exceptions for short cases to be performed prior to the free flap as a personal favor. Invariably, the “short case” takes longer than expected and, combined with the operating room turnaround time, delays the free flap so that it finishes late. Unfortunately, most colleagues do not realize how detrimental these delays are to the success of the free flap. For that reason, it is best to have a firm rule so that exceptions cannot be made.

A major operation, with its attendant preoperative visits, blood tests, hospital stay, and convalescence, is very inconvenient for patients, many of whom are in the prime of their lives and have significant responsibilities at work or at home.
