The venous island flap: is it purely venous?

Abstract

Histological study of the pedicles of long and short saphenous and cephalic venous flaps in fresh human cadavers and two clinical cases showed that one or two arterioles and multiple capillaries were present in the perivenous areolar tissue. This challenges the concept that these flaps are purely venous.
