Cutaneous wounds created by excision of primary cutaneous melanoma localized to the foot and ankle can be challenging to reconstruct. A wide range of coverage techniques are available for wound coverage. The techniques we have found useful in this regard include skin grafts and flaps, as well as specialized wound dressings. In this techniques report, we describe the specialized anatomic surface subunits of the foot and ankle and the reconstructive coverage methods we have found useful for each… CONTINUE READING
