Abstract

A patient with extensive loss of bone and soft tissue from the right heel is presented. The defect was reconstructed using an osteocutaneous flap based on the deep circumflex iliac vessels. Indications for this procedure include extensive loss of bone and soft tissue precluding the use of local flaps. A 30-month period has elapsed since her reconstruction. A single ulcer developed 13 months postoperatively that healed after flap revision. We feel that tailoring the flap to minimize redundancy at the initial operation, subsequent tissue excision if necessary, and reinnervation augment durability of the flap.
