- Reconstruction of Massive Midfoot Bone and Soft Tissue Loss as a Result of Blast InjuryThe Journal of Foot and Ankle SurgeryVol. 49Issue 3
- PreviewLower extremity blast injuries represent a unique challenge to surgeons and often involve complex, limb-threatening wounds with extensive soft tissue and bone loss. Surgical treatment of these injuries can be difficult because of limited autogenous resources for reconstruction of the defect. In this article, we describe a technique for medial column reconstruction using iliac crest bone graft and soft tissue coverage with an abductor hallucis rotational flap combined with a split-thickness skin graft.
