Ipsilateral free fibula transfer for reconstruction of a segmental femoral-shaft defect.
We describe an ipsilateral free fibula transfer for segmental femur reconstruction with venous interpositional grafts. Preparation and use of vessels at the recipient site for microvascular anastomosis is avoided. This represents a valuable modification of previously reported techniques, and should be considered as an alternative to conventional techniques, which regularly require more dissection at the reconstructive site.
