Adherent Skin Graft Status Post Grafting for Traumatic Avulsion of Heel

  • Adherent Skin Graft Status Post Grafting for Traumatic Avulsion of Heel
  • Adherent Skin Graft Status Post Grafting for Traumatic Avulsion of Heel

Description of disability:

The gracilis microsurgical free flap is commonly used in the reconstruction of upper and lower limbs, in breast reconstruction and – as a free functioning flap – to restore forearm function or in dynamic reconstruction of facial paralysis. A long and thin muscle, the gracilis provides a reliable workhorse for reconstructive microsurgery. Both for wound coverage, and as a functional muscle transplant, the gracilis has wide reconstructive applicability. The intramuscular neural anatomy allows the muscle to be thinned segmentally, allowing excessive bulk to be trimmed as needed before functional muscle transplantation.

Treatment:

Adherent skin graft following traumatic avulsion of heel with repeated injury and pain to the grafted site. Underwent free gracilis muscle free flap transfer.

Post operative care:

Routine postoperative measures of rest, elevation and immobilization followed by graduated physiotherapy.
