In the studied series of 167 free transfer two microsurgical flaps in one stage surgery were used in six cases. Two times latissimus + fibula in extensive defects of the tibia and soft tissues of the shin, two times forearm+forearm in isolated defects of the feet, in one case TRAMF + TRAMF for the reconstruction of both breasts and in one case of reconstruction of the penis and the urethra in a transsexual female to male.
In this case three flaps were used–pedunculated rectus abdominis muscle and LAF for the reconstruction of the urethra and a sensitive flap from the forearm for the cover of both preceding flaps. The healing of all flaps was satisfactory and individual case records are described in detail and discussed.
