Abstract

This combined flap is advantageous in that the volume and number of muscle flaps can be adjusted and the skin and muscle flaps can be placed in separate positions. Although harvesting this flap is safe and not difficult, attention should be paid to anatomical variations of the vascular pedicle supplying the skin and muscle flap and to the circulation of the muscle flap. Level of Evidence: level IV, therapeutic study.
