The distally based sural neurocutaneous flap has been used effectively to resurface these defects. However, the paucity of bulk in this flap makes it inadequate for complex post-traumatic or post-ablative soft-tissue reconstruction. We dissected 20 freshly amputated lower limbs after injecting them with a mixture of lead oxide and gelatin. We found muscular branches of the… CONTINUE READING
