Purpose: The aim of this study was to evaluate the outcome and the effectiveness of local flaps in lower extremity reconstruction.
Materials and Methods: We have performed lower extremity reconstruction with local flap in 14 cases (10 males and 4 females) from May 2006 to February 2008. The mean age was 40.1 years (range, 16~67). The defect site was the tibia in 5 cases, the ankle in 1 case and the foot in 8 cases. The local flaps were reverse flow sural artery flap in 7 cases, gastrocnemius flap in 3 cases, lateral supramalleolar flap in 2 cases, dorsalis pedis flap in 1 case and medial hemisoleus flap in 1 case.
Results: All flaps were survived. Venous congestion was developed in 1 case of the rerverse flow sural artery flap but healed with secondary rotational flap. Other flaps were good without any complications.
Conclusion: If we choose precisely indicated local flap in lower extremity reconstruction, the resultant coverage of defect would be excellent.
Key Words: Lower extremity reconstruction, Local flap
