Abstract

Skin fold advancement flaps can be created from the elbow and flank folds to close large wounds in the pectoral and inguinal regions of cats and dogs, respectively. The attachments of the laterally facing (outer) and medially facing (inner) layers of the skin fold to the adjacent limb are divided to produce a U-shaped pedicle graft attached to the trunk. This mobilizes skin that can be advanced over large wounds involving the ventral chest or abdomen, or both. The use of skin fold advancement flaps enables direct closure of large skin defects without undue tension and without compromising the mobility of the adjacent limb.
