Resumen

HURBUNGS, A.  y  RAMKALAWAN, H.. Sacral pressure sore reconstruction - the pedicled superior gluteal artery perforator flap. S. Afr. j. surg. [online]. 2012, vol.50, n.1, pp. 6-8. ISSN 2078-5151.

OBJECTIVE: To report the use of the pedicled superior gluteal artery perforator (SGAP) fasciocutaneous flap as a reliable surgical option for sacral pressure sore reconstruction. METHODS: A prospective study was conducted between September 2008 and September 2010 of 10 patients with stage 3 or 4 sacral pressure sores treated with a unilateral pedicled SGAP flap. RESULTS: All flaps survived completely with no complications in 9 patients. One patient had a haematoma below the flap that was easily drained. No recurrence of the bedsore occurred during follow-up. CONCLUSION: We suggest that the pedicled SGAP fasciocutaneous flap is a reliable surgical option for sacral pressure sore reconstruction.
