GOMES RODRIGUES, T.A. et al. Versatility of sural artery perforator flap and surgical planning with angioscanner. Cir. plást. iberolatinoam. [online]. 2012, vol.38, n.1, pp.69-75. ISSN 0376-7892. http://dx.doi.org/10.4321/S0376-78922012000100009.
The modern reconstructive surgery continuously searches the best coverage option with minimal donor morbidity. Our goal with this prohespective series and revision is to show how versatile sural artery perforator flap can be and the assistance with angioTAC as presurgical planning tool. We describe our experience in 2 years with 11 cases of using of the sural artery perforator flap. We also introduce the using of angioscanner as a presurgical planning tool to identify and design the flap. We conclude that sural artery perforator flap (SAP) is an effective and reliable reconstructive fasciocutaneous option and that angioTAC is a helpful-planning tool that confers suitability to be indicated.
