Introduction: The use of distally pedicled peroneus brevis muscle and fasciocutaneous sural artery flap for coverage of the distal end of lower leg is recommended for soft tissue defects with exposure of bones and/or tendons in patients who are not willing or healthy enough to undergo free microvascular tissue transplantation, and do not require microsurgical expertise.
Case Report: A short presentation of six cases including a short review of literature will highlight current knowledge and complications of these procedures.
Conclusion: The distally pedicled peroneus brevis muscle and fasciocutaneous sural artery flaps are useful for coverage of soft tissue defects of the distal third of lower leg. In our patients, the complication rate of distally pedicled neurofasciocutaneous sural artery flap is higher than the distally pedicled peroneus brevis muscle flap.
