Lumbar region reconstruction using bilateral reverse latissimus dorsi musculocutaneous flaps after large basal cell carcinoma excision

Lumbar region reconstruction using bilateral reverse latissimus dorsi musculocutaneous flaps... The lumbosacral region often represents a difficult area for plastic surgeons to reconstruct. Reconstruction of this area with a standard free tissue transfer is not always possible, and locoregional flaps are often dismissed because of the poor quality and difficulty to mobilize. A case is presented that was reconstructed using bilateral distally based latissimus dorsi myocutaneous flaps after resection of a large malignant tumor located on the midline of the lumbosacral area. The resulting soft tissue defect was 24 × 23 × 5.5 cm. The bilateral flaps were raised in a reverse fashion and successfully transferred into the defect. After 1-year follow-up, the patient was well healed. We believe that this original technique is a noteworthy method and a valuable addition to the armamentarium of flaps. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png European Journal of Plastic Surgery Springer Journals
