Abstract

Although a small case series is the study limitation, our findings suggested that the LD flap harvest can promote a preferential route of lymphatic drainage in the axillary region and could be involved in a metastatic spread to the dorsum because of the new tissue plane opening. The direct communication created between recipient and donor sites could have lead to cell cancer transfer to the donor site either by lymphatic or a contiguity pathway. Level of Evidence: Level V, diagnostic study.
