Abstract

The ipsilateral posterior thigh flap has become one of the workhorses for the closure of ischial pressure ulcers. We treated a 40-year-old paraplegic patient with a right ischial pressure ulcer, in whom all ipsilateral flap options had been expended or were precluded by scars. A contralateral left posterior thigh fasciocutaneous flap interpolated subcutaneously across the midline provided successful coverage.
