trapezius flap revisited: a treatment algorithm for optimal surgical outcomes based on 43 flap reconstructions.
The pectoralis major myocutaneous
flap is widely used to help prevent this occurrence.
The aim of this study is to evaluate and present our experience of the use and efficacy of the latissimus dorsi myocutaneous
flap with a double polypropylene mesh for soft tissue coverage as well skeletal stabilization of composite chest wall defects to achieve functional and aesthetic results.
Repair of right ventricular free wall defect with a de-epithelized pedicled myocutaneous
latissimus dorsi muscle flap.

A cautionary point in the harvest of the anterolateral thigh myocutaneous
From six cases of this group, two cases used omentum metastasis to cover the Prolene net, three cases used the latissimus dorsi muscle flap, and one case used the vastus lateralis myocutaneous
flaps were elevated from the underlying fascia then returned to their native positions and secured with staples.
A latissimus dorsi myocutaneous
flap (LDMF) is one of the reconstruction methods currently employed in the head and neck region (3-5), particularly in cases where the general health status, socioeconomic status, and history of previous surgery, radiotherapy, or trauma may interfere with the use of free flaps.
Specifically, flaps (e.g., muscle and myocutaneous
flaps) are indicated for large and/or deep anatomic defects, such as surgically planned deficiency (e.g., postmastectomy wound) or the result of trauma or chronic infection (Hsien-tsung Liu, 2015).
Results: The surgical procedures ranged from excisions, wide local excisions with split skin graftings, hemiglossectomies and radical neck nodes dissections to pectoralis major myocutaneous
or free fibular faps.
After the elevation of myocutaneous
flap, frontotemporal craniotomy was drilled with one bony flap 3 cm in diameter.
