Abstract

Cases with vast skin defects that cannot be covered by a single flap use the combination of two neighboring flaps. An extensive iliac thigh degloving injury was reconstructed with the combined flap formed by the anterolateral thigh flap and the tensor fasciae latae perforator flap, resulting in a functionally and aesthetically good outcome. This combined flap has minimum donor site morbidity and can be thinned as required. The combined flap consisting of the anterolateral thigh flap and the tensor fasciae latae perforator flap is considered suitable for the repair of massive skin soft tissue defects.
