Use of lotus petal flap in the treatment of perineal hidradenitis suppurativa

Use of lotus petal flap in the treatment of perineal hidradenitis suppurativa Perineal hidradenitis suppurativa is a complex problem to treat.

Abstract

Perineal hidradenitis suppurativa is a complex problem to treat. Various methods of treatment have been tried in the past, but recurrence was common. In this paper, we describe the use of the lotus petal flap in hidradenitis suppurativa of the perineum in three patients. Many local flaps have been used for covering the defect after excision of hidradenitis suppurativa; in our cases, we have used the lotus petal flap. Until now, this flap has been used for vaginal reconstruction after cancer surgery (Yii NW, Niranjan NS (1996) Lotus petal flaps in vulvo vaginal reconstruction. Br J Plast Surg 49(8):547–554, Hashimoto I et al (1999) Vulvo vaginal reconstruction with gluteal fold flaps. J Jpn P R S 19:92–98). Three patients had five lotus petal flaps after the excision of perineal hidradenitis suppurativa, and there were no recurrences of the lesion in the excised area after follow-up at 2 years.
