Scrotal Reconstruction for Fournier Gangrene Using the Isolated Island Groin Flap

Journal Title: IJAR-Indian Journal of Applied Research - Year 2016, Vol 6, Issue 3

Abstract

Introduction: Grafts and flaps have been widely used to reconstruct scrotal defects due to Fournier's gangrene. Controversy still exists concerning the use of grafts and flaps because of the low protection provided by the grafts and the high volume of the flaps. We study the use of island groin flap for scrotum reconstruction. Material & Methods:In the present study, 25 patients of Fournier gangrene with skin loss were treated by island groin flap surgical procedures and the results were evaluated. RESULTS:The age of patients ranged from 7 to 60 years, with youngest patient of 7 year boy to oldest patient 60 year old and maximum incidence in the 21-40 years .Infection present in 3 patient & necrosis present in 2 patients. Conclusion:To cover the testes, both the aesthetic and functional state should be taken into consideration. Therefore, a thin and durable cover is required for scrotal reconstruction.
