  • OBJECTIVE To determine systematically the pattern of the cutaneous perforator of the lateral circumflex femoral artery (LCFA) in anterolateral thigh perforator (ALT) flap. MATERIAL AND METHOD Sixty dissections of the LCFA were carried out in 30 preserved cadavers. The number; type, origin, and location of the cutaneous perforators of the LCFA were studied and measured. RESULTS There were 169 perforators. In 79.3%, the perforators originated from the descending branch, 18.3% from the… CONTINUE READING
