Abstract

Coverage of Exposed Groin Vascular Grafts: Flaps for Different Situations–A Case Series

Groin is the commonest site of graft infections in vascular surgery. This is a potentially catastrophic situation and may lead to limb loss and even death. Management of exposed vascular grafts in the groin wound poses a challenge to the surgeon. Thorough debridement and early coverage of the exposed vascular graft with a flap salvages the limb and has long been recommended.

Keywords: Exposed vascular graft; Groin; Flaps
