Abstract

A mid-plantar ulcer was successfully reconstructed with an extended V-Y flap incorporating part of the flexor digitorum brevis muscle to achieve more volume and increase the safety of the flap. This flap can be used as a reliable alternative to other techniques to repair a moderately sized defect of the plantar midfoot. (C) 2000 The British Association of Plastic Surgeons.
