Abstract

Loss of weight-bearing skin of the foot produces a difficult reconstructive problem. A case is presented of severe bilateral lower limb trauma in which the right leg was amputated below the knee and two free flaps taken from the amputated foot were used for cover of the damaged left foot and the amputation stump.
