Epiploic bypass flap for lower limb salvage in patients with critical ischemia: Long-term results

      Critical ischemia (CI) involves important losses of substance and is a threat for the limb. Revascularization only can be insufficient to reduce the risk of amputation in case of osseous, tendinous, nervous or vascular exposure. Coverage with a flap is then necessary. The technique of epiploic bypass flap (EBF) allows the reconstruction and the revascularization of the limb simultaneously with a single anatomical unit. The objective of this study was to evaluate the long-term limb salvage rate in CI patients treated with EBF.
