Abstract

Abstract The extended deep inferior epigastric flap, described by Taylor et al. (1983), 1984), offers a versatile and reliable technique for covering defects in the lower limb. A case of shark bite is described in which extensive soft tissue loss in the thigh resulted in a denuded femoral shaft which was successfully treated using such a flap.
