Abstract

Pressure sores (ulcers) develop in an area of unrelieved pressure that ultimately leads to tissue ischemia, cell death, and necrosis. Various modalities to include topical therapies, pressure reduction and distribution products, and nutritional support all play a role in treatment; however, surgical debridement and flap coverage provides the most definitive intervention. The posterior thigh fasciocutaneous advancement flap may be used in treatment of ischial and trochanteric pressure sores. Benefits of this flap are that it offers versatility in design and the option of future re-advancement.
