Abstract: Pedicled anterolateral thigh (ALT) flaps are useful flaps for ipsilateral groin defects without the difficulty of microvascular surgery. Pedicled ALT flap has many advantages over other regional flaps like having a large skin and soft tissue availability, the good pedicle length, wide arc of rotation and being reliable. The pedicled anterolateral thigh flap is a versatile option for coverage of soft tissue defects within its reach. Here, we report a case of a groin defect which was a post-infective sequelae following a vascular graft for the femoral artery for peripheral vascular disease which was resurfaced with a pedicled anterolateral thigh flap from the ipsilateral side.
