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.
