Abstract:

The reconstruction of soft tissue defects with leg localization may be difficult mainly in the lower third. Microsurgical free flaps are a solution for this type of reconstruction. We have used free omentum flaps in 19 cases (1997-2009) with a defects in a lower limb. We selected for this presentation only 6 cases (5 males, 1 female) with neglected wounds. All the patients had had a period (14-31 days) of therapy in other hospital before admission. They had infected wounds and we found multiple resistant bacteria in the wound discharge. Three of the patients had osteitis and arthritis already and amputation seemed to be the only solution. We managed to save the limb using the omentum free flap.

KEY WORDS: SOFT TISSUE DEFECT, LEG, OMENTUM, FREE FLAP, MICROSURGERY
