Five patients with high energy trauma of the lower limb with tissue defect located in the knee or the proximal third of the leg underwent reconstruction with a free latissimus dorsi flap. This flap was connected to a vascular saphenous loop which initially creates an arterioveous shunt between proximal femoral vessels. This was performed in a single operation with two teams of surgeons. This technique was chosen because a healthy recipient pedicle was not available in the vicinity of the defect. Application of vein grafts is not the usual procedure but there are situations in which it becomes necessary. Our aim in this paper is to discuss these situations, to describe the technique used in our Hospital and to analyze the advantages and disadvantages of a one or two-stage operation.
