New method of tunnelling for omental transposition in the treatment of a complex radionecrotic groin ulcer

Scand J Plast Reconstr Surg Hand Surg. 2010 Jun;44(3):178-80. doi: 10.3109/02844310802271121.


Omental transposition is often used for reconstruction of soft tissue in the groin. However, the potential for incisional hernia is a relative contraindication. We report the cure of a groin ulcer with omental transposition using a new method of tunnelling to avoid herniation.
