Published inWorld Journal of Plastic Surgery, vol. 7, no. 3, p. 294-300
Publication date2018
Abstract

Eradication of chronic tibial osteomyelitis necessitates aggressive debridement is often followed by soft tissue reconstruction. Muscular flaps are said to be more effective than non-muscular flaps for infection treatment, while fasciocutaneous and perforator flaps are considered to be less invasive and offering a better aesthetic result.
