Latissimus Dorsi Flap
Currently no guidelines available.
Step by step
Mark the skin over the spine, the iliac crest, the caudal scapular border and the borders of the latissimus dorsi muscle. Mark an incision line from the posterior axillary fold extending caudally and medially over the latissimus muscle. When necessary, a skin island can be marked over the incision line.
Latissimus dorsi insertion identification
Care is taken to correctly distinguish between the insertions of the latissimus dorsi and teres major which are adjacent to and can be confused with each other.
