abstract

  • The microvascular free fibula flap has a lower infection rate than traditional allograft reconstruction. There is a high rate of bone union, and functional outcome is good. Thus, the authors recommend the microvascular fibula transfer as the technique of choice for reconstructing large, complex long bone defects resulting from tumor extirpation.
