The reconstruction of complex defects in the abdominal wall after wound infection or trauma can be challenging. In this article, a superficial inferior epigastric artery flap, a tensor fascia lata flap, and an anterolateral thigh flap used for 3 different abdominal wall reconstructions are described. The authors conclude that different specific abdominal wall defects can be successfully reconstructed using different pedicled flaps in simple and effective single-stage reconstructions.
