Combined use of medial thigh skin flaps and gracilis musculocutaneous flaps for the reconstruction of scrotum

  • 31 Accesses

Summary

A case of combined use of bilateral medial thigh skin flaps and gracilis musculocutaneous flaps for the reconstruction of a scrotal defect resulting from Fournier's gangrene is presented. The procedure provided a sac-like scrotum, and the donor sites were successfully reconstructed using bilateral gracilis musculocutaneous V-Y advancement flaps.
