Prosthetic vascular graft infection--defect covering with delayed vertical rectus abdominis muscular flap (VRAM) and rectus femoris flap.

Prosthetic vascular graft infection is associated with high rates of morbidity and mortality. When infections lead to an open exposure of vascular prosthesis special techniques may be necessary to cover tissue defects in regions with often very poor circulation/perfusion conditions. Even when there are large tissue defects associated with vascular… CONTINUE READING
