  • OBJECTIVE The objective of our study is to perform a comparative analysis of the mobilisation of latissimus dorsi (LD) muscle flap using the primary versus secondary blood supply. METHOD Between 1 January 2003 and 1 March 2009 we used the LD muscle flap in 57 patients with different intrathoracic suppurations; these patients were divided according to the blood supply used for flap mobilisation. Group A consists of 26 patients in whom the LD was mobilised based on the thoracodorsal vessels… CONTINUE READING
