Dynamic reconstruction of large abdominal defects using a free rectus femoris musculocutaneous flap with normal motor function.

Abstract

Reconstruction of large abdominal wall defects with conventional reconstruction including the component separation technique is difficult because of strong transverse tension and loss or weakness of the rectus abdominis muscle. To overcome this problem, dynamic reconstruction of the abdominal wall using a free innervated rectus femoris musculocutaneous flap… (More)
