paramedian forehead flap
an inferiorly based flap vascularized by the supratrochlear artery and vein and transposed 180 degrees to resurface the nose. Its earliest incarnation was a midline flap based on both supratrochlear arteries and veins and termed the “Indian” flap because of its origins there as early as 1400 CE.
