Subscapular artery Y-shaped flow-through muscle flap: a novel one-stage limb salvage procedure.


OBJECTIVES Major tissue loss caused by the critical limb ischemia requires improvement of distal perfusion and cover of large tissue defects. We propose a new method, the y-shaped subscapular artery flow-through (Y-SCAFT) muscle flap using the subscapular artery that yields an arterial graft and a free muscle flap sustained by a collateral branch of this… (More)
