Abstract

Four successful cases of expanded free latissimus dorsi myocutaneous flaps are reported. Expansion of free latissimus dorsi flaps has 2 distinct advantages: moulding of the flap prior to its transfer to a convex surface (cranium); primary closure of the donor site. The latissimus dorsi myocutaneous flap seems to be the flap of choice for pre-transfer expansion.
