Abstract

One of the significant reconstructive challenges is closure of large soft tissue defects of the lower extremity. A patient with a large traumatic defect in the lower extremity was treated with a cross-leg free latissimus dorsi myocutaneous flap. The size of the flap was 32×12 cm. The pedicle was divided 22 days after the initial operation. The result was satisfactory after a 2-year follow-up. This technique allows the transfer of large flaps to cover compromised wounds, with the advantage of using suitable recipient vessels.
