Abstract

With attention to detail in preservation of major perforators from the posterior tibial vessels to the flap and additional refinements in flap dissection described in this report, the author believes that the medial hemisoleus muscle flap can be a reliable local option. It should be considered a safe option with which to replace free tissue transfer for soft-tissue coverage of a less extensive tibial wound in the distal third of the leg because the flap can provide good reconstructive outcomes with minimal morbidity and is potentially cost-effective.
