OBJECTIVE Many techniques have been proposed to reconstruct acquired vulvar defects. In our experience, every type of vulvar defect can be repaired with 2 pedicled flaps, namely, the pedicle deep inferior epigastric perforator (DIEP) flap and the lotus petal flap (LPF). MATERIALS AND METHODS We report our reconstructive algorithm for vulvar(More)
