Abstract
We have devised a modified technique using the gluteus maximus musculocutaneous flap as multilayered sliding V-Y advancement to cover pressure sores on the sacral area. Nine patients with relatively large (average 7 x 7 cm) sacral grade IV pressure sores underwent unilateral multilayered V-Y advancement flap. All patients were followed for a minimum of 8 weeks. The mean postoperative follow-up was 32.3 months, with a range of 24 to 39 months. Using this technique, the success of surgery, i.e., the percentage of sores that healed, was 100 percent in our patients. The advantages of this technique include sufficient advancement of the flap, coverage of large ulcer defects using only a unilateral musculocutaneous flap, and preservation of the contralateral gluteus maximus muscle for future use.
