Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The Singapore flap, which is a pedicled pudendal fasciocutaneous flap from the thigh, is used for vaginal reconstruction in the case of vaginal agenesis, perineal wound closure, rectovaginal fistula repair, and disorders of sexual differentiation. It may also be used to reconstruct the vagina following pelvic exenteration in the case of gynecologic malignancy. Possible complications include flap loss or necrosis, wound dehiscence, neovaginal stenosis or prolapse, infection, hair growth, and dyspareunia.
