Open infected Achilles tendon injury--reconstruction of tendon with fascia lata graft and soft tissue cover with a reverse flow sural flap



Open infected Achilles tendon injury--reconstruction of tendon with fascia lata graft and soft tissue cover with a reverse flow sural flap



Foot and Ankle Surgery 14(2): 96-99



We present a patient with an open, infected Achilles tendon injury with a soft tissue defect of 12 cm x 5 cm and a tendon defect of 10 cm. He underwent a two-stage procedure. A first stage debridement of tendon and soft tissue was followed by a second stage tendo Achilles reconstruction using fascia lata graft and soft tissue cover with a reverse flow sural flap. He had a good functional outcome with minimal donor site morbidity.
