YANEZ M, Ricardo et al. Double DIEP flap for lower extremities reconstruction. Rev Chil Cir [online]. 2015, vol.67, n.5, pp.522-526. ISSN 0718-4026.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-40262015000500010.

Introduction: A soft tissue defect considering the extent, location, depth and involved structures can be a complex task, leading to search for unusual reconstructive alternatives. Case report: Puerperal woman, 21 years, previously healthy, admitted for septic shock and skin necrosis of both extremities secondary to purpura fulminans. Escharectomy was performed and the final defect was 27% of total body surface, corresponding to necrotic areas of both superior and lower extremities. Is remarkable the presence of musculocutaneous perforating vessels thrombosis and segmental muscular necrosis in legs and interosseous muscles necrosis in hands. In upper extremity coverage was performed with dermoepidermal grafts. To cover peroneal malleolus and feet dorsum, whereas there were no regional or local alternatives, we realize a double DIEP flap. Flap elevation of bilateral DIEP flap was performed simultaneously for two surgical teams. The patient had no complications and was discharged with complete soft tissue coverage.

Palabras clave : Double DIEP flap; lower limb reconstruction; microsurgery.
