P>Head injuries occur frequently in horses and a successful outcome after repair depends upon the severity of the initial trauma, the anatomical structures involved and the extent of tissue loss. Often these injuries involve facial bones and enter into the nasal passages or paranasal sinus system. When these injuries occur in conjunction with substantial tissue loss, the resulting defect may be difficult to close and naso/sinocutaneous fistulae can develop. These defects can be challenging and time consuming to repair and an appropriate reconstructive technique must be selected. We describe the use of reverse periosteal flaps as a technique in repairing large nasocutaneous fistulae in 2 horses after previous attempts to close the defects by other means had failed.
