Background and objective

Vulvectomy surgery is associated with a high incidence of surgical wound complications that may be avoided with immediate vulvar reconstruction.

In this paper we present the results obtained in our hospital with the implementation of an immediate vulvar reconstruction protocol.

Methods

In January 2017 we established an immediate vulvar reconstruction protocol in our center with a list of criteria that would allow the gynecologist to detect those patients with a high risk of wound dehiscence after vulvectomy in order to coordinate the immediate reconstruction of the vulva with our Plastic Surgery Service.

For the next 18 months, we recorded the information of those patients intervened: age, pathology, reconstructive criteria, reconstructive technique, laterality, hospital stay and complications during the first 30 postoperative days.

Results

We performed immediate vulvar reconstruction in 9 patients: 8 with a lotus flap and 1 with a gracilis myocutaneous flap. Mean stay was 31.4 days and 3 patients developed complications in the form of surgical wound dehiscence.

Conclusions

We consider that our protocol is a useful tool for the implantation of immediate vulvar reconstruction and to establish a collaboration between gynecologists and plastic surgeons.
