Wide local excision of skin cancer in the lumbar area is a challenge to reconstruct. We report on the successful use of a two perforators-based superior gluteal artery perforator propeller flap, for the reconstruction of a lumbar defect.
813 free perforator flap surgery and always have a second option in mind in case of flap failure. Further, a sufficient understanding of the wound characteristics, donor and recipient vessels, and design for insetting should precede the surgery. Lastly, the skin graft over the muscle flap is less durable than the fasciocutaneous flap and tends to form a… (More)
Wide local excision of a lesion that encompasses several facial subunits including medial canthus, nasal sidewall, and cheek provides multiple aesthetic and reconstructive challenges to restore both orbital function as well as appearance. We report the first successful use of a chimeric upper eyelid--supraorbital flap to reconstruct a facial defect,… (More)
INTRODUCTION The precise vascular anatomy of posterior lower leg skin is not well understood. Despite being a potential donor site for sural artery perforator flaps, this region is rarely used and underestimated. The aim of this study was to provide exact preoperative planning for medial and lateral sural artery perforator flap harvest. METHODS An… (More)
