Abstract: 

Introduction & Objectives: Reconstruction of extensive soft tissue defects of ~e is one of the most important problems in plastic surgery. This problem may results from Infections, burns and tumor resection. Reconstruction techniques include: Fasciocutaneous flaps (saphenous, postero lateral thigh), muscular flaps (vastus lateralis, vastus medialis and gastronomies) and free flaps which are the last choice for reconstruction of knee defects. We used lateral and distal thigh flap to cover knee defects in 15 khordad hospital during 1380 to 1382.
Material and Methods: During 2 years four patients that suffered from extensive soft tissue damage of the knee due to burns were treated. Debridement and primary care were done and defects were covered with gastronomies flaps and with remains of proximal soft tissue defect. Defects were covered by lateral and distal thigh flap. This article reports the analysis and results of this procedure.
Results: During this time two patients (17 and 30 years old) were treated by this flap with a mean hospital stay time of 20 days and a mean 15 months of follow up.
Conclusions: This flap was used successfully. Usage of this flap for the same conditions is suggested due to an easy technique and a shorter operation time.
