In this study, a retrospective comparison between musculocutaneous and fasciocutaneous flaps in the treatment of trochanteric pressure sores was performed. From 1988 to 1996, 62 patients with 82 trochanteric pressure sores were treated surgically. The median age of the patients was 33.2 years with 50 males and 12 females, 20 patients had bilateral trochanteric pressure sores; 25 pressure sores were treated by musculocutaneous flaps and 57 with fasciocutaneous flaps. The comparative advantage of musculocutaneous and fasciocutaneous flaps in the surgical treatment of pressure sores is controversial. This study was performed to determine the ideal treatment modality. It showed that there was no significant difference in the recurrence rates.
