Upper extremity salvage using the tensor fascia lata flap: report of two cases

The Journal of Hand Surgery
Anthony Smith, N B Meland


The tensor fascia lata pedicled flap was successfully used to salvage 3 severely injured upper extremities in 2 patients. Both patients had undergone 3 prior free tissue transfers without complete closure of their wounds. All 3 tensor fascia lata flaps (2 myocutaneous, 1 myofascial) survived entirely. We believe this flap offers a distinct advantage compared with the groin flap when pedicled flap coverage of the upper extremity is required.
