HUIMAN LAZO, Victor; BARDALES LASTEROS, Alberto; ARCE CHIRINOS, Dante  y  IRIARTE BLAS, Jesús. Sural flap in the coverage of lower extremity wounds using differed transposition technique. Rev Med Hered [online]. 2004, vol.15, n.3, pp.155-158. ISSN 1018-130X.

Objective: To evaluate viability of sural flap in the coverage of lower extremity wounds that expose their vascular pedicle zone, using differed transposition technique. Material and Methods: We included 8 patients with reconstructive surgery of lower extremity wounds, of plastic surgery division of the Hospital Nacional Cayetano Heredia, from June 2001 to May 2003. We used differed transposition technique with sural flap in the coverage of wounds. Results: Social flaps were viable in all of cases, in time of transposition. The most frequent complication was partial necrosis. Conclusion: Differed transposition technique is adequate to support viability of sural flaps in these cases. (Rev Med Hered 2004;15:155-158).

Palabras clave : Sural flap; differed transposition technique; extremity wound.
