The anterolateral thigh flap can be used in a variety of ways to reconstruct defects in many areas. As a pedicled flap islanded on its vascular pedicle, it is used to reconstruct the inguinal region. As a free microvascular transfer, it is used to resurface defects throughout the body. It offers bulk, sensate cover, and has an enormous skin replacement potential. Its constant, long, large calibre vessels make it a flap worth considering as a first option for skin and soft tissue reconstructions.
