Substitution of soft tissue defects on the lower leg and foot in septic cases

Substitution of soft tissue defects on the lower leg and foot in septic cases

Magyar Traumatologia Ortopedia Kezsebeszet Plasztikai Sebeszet 37(1): 3-10

PMID: 7909254

After the spontaneous epithelialisation of the defects of soft parts so called unstable scars remain which, because of ulceration, are sources of infection, endangering both soft parts and bones. Substitution with soft tissues of adequate blood supply enables the complete sanation of the septic foci and by this the rapid healing of the patient with full function. Beside this a better cosmetic result can be achieved. In septic environment, if possible, local muscle flaps and free flaps are used, depending on the extent and localization of the defect. Experiences, gained in these operations are described.
