Abstract:

The reverse sural artery fasciomusculocutaneous flap has become an acceptable technique of lower-limb reconstruction despite the grafted appearance of the donor site in the upper leg. In an attempt to reduce the donor-site morbidity, we describe the use of the adipofasciomuscular reverse sural artery flap in a patient with a heel sinus and underlying calcaneal osteomyelitis.
