Last verified: June 2010
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the possible harvest of a tensor fasciae latae flap based on septocutaneous perforators.This study should further confirm our data from an anatomical study concerning location, distribution, diameter and differentiation of the perforators.

Condition Intervention
Soft Tissue Defect
Other: septocutaneous perforator flap

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Clinical Experience With a Tensor Fasciae Latae Perforator Flap Based on Septocutaneous Perforators

Further study details as provided by Medical University of Graz:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Confirmation of the anatomical data in the clinical trial [ Time Frame: January 2008 till may 2010 ]
    Since the purpose of this study was to confirm our anatomical data in a clinical trial, the location, the differentiation and the diameter of the septocutaneous perforators has been measured and recorded during flap elevation.

Enrollment: 14
Study Start Date: January 2008
Study Completion Date: May 2010
Primary Completion Date: February 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Other: septocutaneous perforator flap
    Perforator flaps can be based on septocutaneous or musculocutaneous perforators. If septocutaneous perforators are present, the harvest of these flaps is more straight forward and the dissection of the pedicle is easy.
    Other Names:
