Abstract: 
Objectives. The neurocutaneous sural artery flap taken from the calf is the one of best procedures to cover defects of the lower leg, ankle, and foot.
Patients alld Methods. We report our experience with 15 Patients presenting with chronIc and traumatic wounds of the ankle and foot.
Results. All cases were successfully operated at our center during the five year period from 1998 to 2003. Among the complications, we encountered 3 cases of partial necrosis. Due to its good vascularity and long pedicle, this flap has a wide range of rotation in the dorsum, sole, heel, and malleoules, and is a dependable and versatile procedure for surgeons. Another advantage is easy and quick dissection. Donor site scar and anesthesia of the lateral side of the leg is a disadvantage of this flap.
