BACKGROUND Island "perforator flaps" have become state of the art for free-skin flap transfer. Recent articles by Saint-Cyr et al. and Rozen et al. have focused on the anatomical and the clinical territories of individual cutaneous perforating arteries in flap planning, and it is timely to compare this work with our angiosome concept. METHODS The angiosome concept, published in 1987, was reviewed and correlated with key experimental and clinical work by the authors, published subsequently at… CONTINUE READING
