Extensor digitorum brevis flap on the treatment of lower limb injuries
TLDR
The EDB flap is a feasible and safe technique to repair foot, ankle and distal leg losses, but suffering, dehiscence and delayed healing of the EDB end flap donor area may, however, occur.
Versatility of the Extensor Digitorum Brevis Muscle Flap in Lower Limb Reconstruction
TLDR
The pedicled EDB-flap has, in the hands, proved to be a versatile and safe reconstructive option in the reconstruction of small defects in the lower leg and foot.
The reverse flow extensor digitorum brevis flap for dorsal foot defects-A single center study.
Analysis of the morphometry and variations in the extensor digitorum brevis muscle: an anatomic guide for muscle flap and tendon transfer surgical dissection
TLDR
The extensor digitorum brevis muscle is a practical option for use as an island flap or free flap when reconstructing soft tissue defects in the ankle as well as in the entire lower limb and its observations have significant value and are applicable to plastic and orthopedic surgery.

Extensor Digitorum Brevis as an Island Flap in the Reconstruction of Soft‐Tissue Defects in the Lower Limb
TLDR
The extensor digitorum brevis island flap is a versatile and robust flap able to provide adequate bulk and coverage in soft-tissue defects of the lower limb with good aesthetic and functional results on both recipient and donor sites.
[Extensor digitorum muscle flap: its position in ankle and foot coverage. Report of 15 cases].
TLDR
Elevation of the extensor digitorum brevis flap is simple without note-worthy sequelaes, it is a reliable technique either for skin coverage or osteitis cure at level of the ankle, and it also appears as a useful alternative for the fore-foot reconstruction.
Extensor Digitorum Brevis Muscle Flap: New Refinements
TLDR
Two original operative techniques of raising the extensor digitorum brevis muscle flap are presented and it is proved that the extended pedicle dissection enhances the rotation arc of the flap.
Extensor Digitorum Brevis Free Flap: Anatomic Study and Further Clinical Applications
The extensor digitorum brevis muscle flap is reliable, safe, and can be used either as a pedicle or as a free flap with minimal donor site morbidity. To increase the existing knowledge of this flap

TLDR
The authors report the filling of a lateral pre-malleolar soft tissue defect after sub-talar arthrodesis using two locoregional pedicled flaps: the extensor digitorum brevis flap and the abductor digiti minimi flap.

TLDR
In this modification, the deep fascia of the dorsum of the foot with part or the whole of the extensor digitorum brevis muscle is used as a fascial or myofascial flap supplied by the dorsalis pedis artery and covered by a split-thickness skin graft.
Single-stage reconstruction of soft-tissue defects including the Achilles tendon using the dorsalis pedis arterialized flap along with the extensor digitorum brevis as bridge graft.
TLDR
A simple and very reliable procedure using a dorsalis pedis island flap which provides a vascularized, innervated musculotendinous unit (i.e., extensor digitorum brevis) to bridge the gap in the Achilles tendon and thin, mobile skin and fascia to close the defect in the skin is described.
Bipedicle Fasciocutaneous Flaps for Inframalleolar Vascular Graft Coverage at the Ankle/Foot
In 9 patients requiring inframalleolar bypass (11 extremities), intraoperative consult revealed exposed saphenous vein grafts at either the medial ankle or the dorsum of the foot in which primary
