Abstract

The gastrocnemius muscle flap may be considered the first choice in many cases of soft-tissue reconstruction about the knee. Limited arc of rotation and reach of the flap as well as unsightly muscle bulk are major disadvantages and were the impetus to look for a local alternative. The aim of this study is to present a consecutive series of patients with a reconstruction about the knee involving the medial sural artery perforator flap (MSAPF).
