[Application of perforator propeller flap of lower limb in the treatment of foot and ankle defect in children].
TLDR
The perforator propeller flap of lower limb in children has its own characteristics and is a reliable method to repair the foot and ankle defect in children.
Modified Anterior Tibial Artery Perforator-Pedicled Propeller Flap for Soft-Tissue Coverage of the Ankle and Heel
TLDR
The modified anterior tibial artery free-style perforator-pedicled propeller flap provides a novel option for functional ankle and heel reconstruction.
Posterior Tibial Artery Perforator Flap Series of Cases
TLDR
The posterior tibial artery perforator flap should be considered a valid option in the treatment of wounds of small and medium size of the leg and provide similar tissue in thickness, texture and color in the recipient site with good clinical and aesthetic results.
Efficacy of Perforator based flap in Reconstruction of soft tissue defect of lower leg
TLDR
It was concluded that the perforator based flap is a reliable option for reconstruction of lower leg soft tissue defect with low post-operative morbidity, good daily function and satisfactory cosmetic results.
Neurocutaneous flaps for soft tissue reconstruction of the knee, lower leg, ankle and foot: Clinical experience with 32 patients
TLDR
NF proved to be a paramount alternative to free-flap reconstruction of the lower limb in patients with lower extremity soft tissue defects caused by trauma, infection, tumour removal or unstable scar formation.
[Clinical application of digital technology in repairing of heel wound with peroneal artery perforator propeller flap].
TLDR
The digital technique can improve the accuracy of perforator localization and the design of peroneal artery per forator propeller flap, and reduce the difficulty of operation, and the risk caused by the variation of vascular anatomy.
Utilisation of distally based sural fasciocutaneous flaps in lower extremity reconstruction: a single-centre experience with 88 paediatric patients
TLDR
Assessment of the reliability and potential risk factors for distally based sural fasciocutaneous flaps in paediatric patients and complications in the donor site of the flaps found that they are relatively safe and reliable.
THE HUMAN FETUSES’ LOWER LEG: POSTERIOR TIBIAL ARTERY Authors: Stevanovic
TLDR
The presence of septocutaneous system of perforating blood vessels and reliability of their localization even in the fetal period allows application of these findings in the lower leg reconstructions in children of early age.

TLDR
Perforator flaps in the lower extremity are versatile in terms of size, design, composition, and axis of rotation and are reliable and safe when used to reconstruct local defects.
Free posterior tibial perforator flap: Anatomy and a report of 6 cases
TLDR
Anatomy of cutaneous perforators of the posterior tibial artery were studied in 20 limbs of 10 cadavers and a free fasciocutaneous skin flap based on one of them was successfully transplanted in 6 cases.

TLDR
The distally based adipofascial flap, covered with skin graft, is a suitable method for reconstruction of soft tissue loss of the dorsal foot and ankle and provides optimum functional and aesthetic outcome with minimum donor site morbidity.
Distally based lateral supramalleolar adipofascial flap for reconstruction of the dorsum of the foot and ankle.
TLDR
It is believed that this flap is versatile and effective and is a good addition to the available techniques used by reconstructive surgeons for coverage of the dorsum of the foot and ankle.
Microvascular Free Flap Reconstruction in Pediatric Lower Extremity Trauma: A 10-Year Review
TLDR
There is a significant role for the microvascular surgeon in the management of limb-threatening injuries in children and if the unique features of this population are taken into consideration, a high rate of limb salvage and good function can be expected.
The 180-Degree Perforator-Based Propeller Flap for Soft Tissue Coverage of the Distal, Lower Extremity: A New Method to Achieve Reliable Coverage of the Distal Lower Extremity With a Local, Fasciocutaneous Perforator Flap
TLDR
The 180-degree propeller flap is an elegant and versatile method to achieve soft tissue coverage with local tissue in defects of the distal tibia and even in older patients, this flap has proven to be a reliable option.
Distally Based Adipofascial Flaps Covering Soft-Tissue Defects of the Dorsal Foot and Ankle in Children
TLDR
Some patients exhibited a growth mismatch between grafted skin and the recipient site, resulting in mild extension contracture of the metatarsophalangeal joints; however, motion of the ankle joints was excellent and the appearance of the reconstructed feet aesthetically and functionally satisfied the patients and their parents.
