Abstract

COVERAGE OF ELBOW INJURIES USING DOUBLE RANDOM FASCIOCUTANEOUS FLAPS AND SKIN GRAFT

Ozinko M.O., Otei O.O., Ekpo R.G.

ABSTRACT

The aim of our article is to present the rarity of the use of double bipedicled
transverse fasciocutaneous flaps for the coverage of elbow
injuries. We present a surgical technique for the treatment of avulsion
of the elbow in a young security officer following a gunshot injury.
The reconstruction was done by using a double bi-pedicled transverse
fasciocutaneous flaps and skin grafting the secondary defects in one
stage. All the wounds healed satisfactorily and there was no significant
edema to the right forearm and hand.

Keywords: Bipedicle, Fasciocutaneous flap, Elbow injury, Skin graft.
