Versatility of Pedicled Tensor Fascia Lata Flap in Two Different Challenging Anatomical Defects

G. Gopu, M. Ramesh, Dr. R. Balasubramaniam

BackgroundThe tensor fascia lata is a versatile flap with many usesin reconstructive plastic surgery.As a pedicled flap, its reach to the lower abdomen and groinmade it an attractive option for reconstructing soft tissuedefects after tumour ablation. We present two cases with challenging anatomical reconstruction after tumour ablation using pedicled TFL flap. A pedicled tensor fascia lata (TFL) flap was therefore performed in both cases, which resulted in durable sensate reconstruction with good functional outcomes and no complications. We believe the pedicled TFL flap represents an important option for the reconstruction of oncologic defects that provides well-vascularized and sensate tissue without the need for microsurgical techniques.
