    Defect reconstruction of the trochanter major after necrotizing fasciitis and multiple operations using an arteriovenous loop and latissimus dorsi free flap

    Andreas Arkudas, Susanne Regus, Alexander Meyer, Werner Lang, Marweh Schmitz, Raymund E. Horch
    Necrotizing fasciitis (NF) is a severe soft tissue infection which has to be treated with a radical debridement as the key element. In the further course often large tissue defects occur, so that a long-term stable defect reconstruction plays a crucial role after any successful debridement. The... Read more
