Abstract

Introduction:

Postablative reconstruction of vulvar defects is a difficult challenge. Local flaps carry a high incidence of delayed wound healing as local flaps may redistribute but not eliminate local wound tension. Repair of defect with distant pedicled flaps may avert local complications by minimising tension to the skin and increasing the initial biomechanical strength of wound. The aim of this study was to determine the clinical outcome of distant musculocutaneous & fasciocutaneous flaps used for postablative reconstruction of large vulvar defects.

Methods:

Between January 2015 to December 2015 total three patients underwent vulvectomy and immediate reconstruction with distant pedicled flaps for vulvar carcinoma. Postoperative complications were recorded and clinical outcomes were evaluated.

Results:

Two of the three flaps healed primarily. One flap was complicated by minor wound dehiscence, which healed with conservative treatment. Hospital stay and clinical course was shorter in comparison to local flaps and split skin graft.

Conclusions:

Distant musculocutaneous and fasciocutaneous flaps provide excellent design flexibility and can be tailored to reconstruct postablative vulvar defects with good outcomes and minimal morbidity.
