Abstract

Pedicled omental flaps have been used successfully for soft tissue reconstruction of complicated wounds. Distal reach and the lengthening technique of the pedicled omentum are less highlighted. Unestimated size availability of coverage by the lengthening technique has restricted common practice in clinical use. We have used the cadaveric scale of Das preoperatively to assess the distal reach and coverage on the lengthened pedicled omentum, this can correlate well intraoperatively.
