The dorsalis pedis flap for lower leg reconstruction

Acta Orthopaedica Scandinavica
C Krag, P Riegels-Nielsen


The dorsalis pedis pedicled island flap was used in 13 cases of soft tissue reconstruction of the distal third of the lower leg and heel. The intended purpose was achieved in 12 cases. Donor site morbidity was insignificant. The operative procedure is described with emphasis on the dissection of the flaps and the identification of important vessels. Meticulous donor site coverage is stressed. The indications for this flap procedure are outlined.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
