AbstractExtensive defects in perineal reconstruction cannot be effectively reconstructed with only a single perforator flap or other conventional techniques. We present a combination of three different types of flaps including pedicled ALT-rectus-vastus lateralis, gracilis-PAP flap and two IGAP flaps as an alternative option for reconstructing a critically-sized perineal defect.
