Abstract

A case with recurrent liposarcoma is described in where combined VRAMC flap and emergency free latissimus dorsi musculocutaneous flap as well as artificial hip joint-femur, and femoral vessels were successfully transferred for repair of massive anterior thigh defect. The concept of a hybrid combination with tissue transfers including biomaterials (bone and vessels) can preserve a limb with widely invasive recurrent sarcoma. Emergency free LDMC flap transfer with flow-through pedicle anastomosis is also important to prevent exposure of artificial vessels and bone. In addition, prophylactic LVA is also very important approach for the prevention of postoperative lymphedema as a serious complication after massive resection in the proximal thigh.
