abstract

  • Use of the pedicled latissimus dorsi flap in complex shoulder reconstructions provided ample well-vascularized soft tissue, minimized risk of infection, and maximized limb salvage. In our experience, the pedicled latissimus dorsi flap is an excellent choice for reconstruction of defects around the shoulder after tumor extirpation.
