Free-Style Dual Plane Recycling Tensor Fascia Lata Musculocutaneous Perforator Flap for Reconstruction of Recurrent Trochanteric Defects

Sequential flap coverage might be required for recurrent defects, but reusing a flap as a donor site has seldom been reported. The concept of a “free-style flap” has been developed, and it allows reconstructive surgeons to raise flaps with various designs reliably, even at sites of previous flap surgery. This article presents the concept of free-style recycling of a tensor fascia lata flap into a perforator-based flap separated in 2 planes in a patient with a recurrent bilateral trochanteric defect.
