Abstract

Extralevator abdominoperineal excision of the rectum was introduced with the aim of improving the oncological outcome of low rectal cancer. The technique includes resection of the levator muscles from their origins on the pelvic side walls and their en bloc removal along with the mesorectum, which results in a larger perineal defect than is seen after conventional surgery. For reconstruction of large perineal defects, pedicled muscle flaps are recommended but the procedure is technically challenging and plastic surgery consultation is necessary. Local flap techniques such as a gluteus maximus myocutaneous V-Y advancement flap are an easier option. In this case report, wound failure following a local flap repair of a perineal defect is presented.
