Abstract: The McGregor flap is a remotely pedicled “axial” inguinal flap. This is a very reliable flap for coverage of major upper limb substance loss, even if its major drawback is that it requires two operations. It remains a flap of choice in the therapeutic arsenal of hand and forearm surgery, in emergency or scheduled surgery. Tissue loss has always been a challenge for reconstructive surgeons. We report a case of loss of substance of the posterior surface of the forearm following a road traffic accident, treated with a McGregor flap with good results.
