Abstract

The authors discuss the indications for the use of the rectum abdominis musculocutaneous flap described by Hartrampf. The criteria for the selection of the patients for this procedure are considered. Advantages and disadvantages of the rectus abdominis myocutaneous flap vs. the latissimus dorsi myocutaneous flap for breast reconstruction are discussed. The authors point out some technical details which are crucial in order to minimize weakening of the abdominal wall and to avoid venous engorgement of the skin island.
