Replacement of a large neck tissue defect with a non-free musculocutaneous flap of the pectoralis major muscle in combination with open laryngoplasty with an autorib with the formation of a tracheostomy in a 16-year-old with an electric arc burn. Head and neck. Russian magazine = Head and neck. Russian Journal. 2022;10(2):60–68.

Electrical injury and electrical burns are an integral part of the structure of injuries in countries with developed industry and electrical networks [1]. In our time, victims of electricity account for about 5% of those admitted to burn centers around the world [2]. Patients with electrical injury differ from patients who received thermal injury from  other etiological factors: younger age, smaller area and greater depth of skin lesions[3], severe course and high mortality [2], high incidence of disability [4]. This clinical case is of particular interestdue to the fact that publications on elec tric al injur y c ontain relatively lit tle information about surgic al treatment:when it should b egin, what nec essar y interventions should be performed, and what will happen if they are not performed [5].
