The original publication is available at http://www.samj.org.za
The use of free-tissue transfers by modern techniques of microvascular surgery is not new, and the many possibilities in reconstructive surgery are well documented. A case in which a disfiguring cosmetic defect of the lower leg was repaired in one stage with a latissimus dorsi myocutaneous free flap is described.
