A patient had a failed reconstruction and several surgeries prior to our reconstruction. We were able to use a microvascular flap to resurface the ankle region. The thin skin flap allows for this patient to have durable soft tissue with a good contour that doesn’t interfere with wearing shoes.
A patient with an infected and necrotizing diabetic foot wound that otherwise would have resulted in a below-knee amputation. Utilizing a team approach, we can save a majority of this patient’s foot using a microvascular flap. The patient is 2 years from her reconstruction and continuing to walk and live a normal life.
