Ten dogs with caudal superficial epigastric axial pattern flap reconstruction of extensive skin defects were reviewed. Nine dogs had complete survival of the flap. In one dog, a small area of necrosis occurred near the flap tip. Other complications included seroma formation (n=3), partial incisional dehiscence (n=3), flap edema (n=9), and bruising (n=7). Use of the caudal superficial epigastric axial pattern flap provided full-thickness skin coverage of extensive skin defects of the rear limb and inguinal region, with relatively minor complications that were amenable to conservative management.
