Case Report: Microsurgical reconstruction of foot with difficult wounds


The images display a 52-year-old pacient’s injury who, after trauma, suffered necrosis of the dorsum of the foot. This type of adverse outcome is common in smokers, diabetics, and patients that have caght hypertensive heart disease.

After months with dressings it could not be see the situation to improve. When the patient came to our unit, he was informed that the treatment alone couldn’t not heal the wound. Instead, a comprehensive treatment by microsurgical revascularization, adequate debridement and reconstruction with microsurgical flaps could solve his problem. The picture shows the final result.
