Superior and Inferior Gluteal Artery Perforator Flap
The superior and inferior gluteal artery perforator flap was developed from gluteus maximus myocutaneous flap. The superior gluteal artery perforator flap supplied by superior gluteal artery was first reported to repair sacral bedsore by Koshima in 1993. It was then applied in reconstruction of breast by Allen, and also used for repair of spinal meningocele and bedsore wound in pedicled form. The inferior gluteal artery perforator flap supplied by inferior gluteal artery was first reported to repair sciatic wound by Xiancheng Wang.
