Abstract

The lateral calcaneal artery flap provides a simple and reliable option for reconstructing the posterior heel defect. In our 10 cases including 3 diabetic patients, there was no flap necrosis, but one had the problem of wound healing. In another case, the skin graft over the flap donor site failed to take. All patients have protective sensation on the flap area, and 7 ambulatory patients can engage in a normal daily activity. Numbness over the lateral foot does not cause any trouble. There are a lot of spoke injuries in our 6-million-motorcycle country. When the conservative treatments do not achieve a satisfactory result, the lateral calcaneal artery flap should be the best surgical intervention for the defect less than 5 cm in diameter with bone or tendon exposure.
