Patient Testimonial for Latissimus Dorsi Muscle Flap

Testimonial by Mr. E. Murali Krishna

Treatment for: Road Traffic Accident
Treated by: Dr Sasikanth Maddu
Patient location: Hyderabad

Heel reconstruction and microvascular latissimus dorsi muscle transfer are surgical procedures that can be performed together to restore function and appearance to a damaged or injured heel.

Heel reconstruction involves rebuilding the heel bone and surrounding tissues, such as tendons and ligaments, that may have been damaged or destroyed due to trauma or disease. This procedure may involve the use of bone grafts, metal plates, or other devices to help support the heel as it heals.

Microvascular latissimus dorsi muscle transfer is a technique that involves taking a muscle from the back, called the latissimus dorsi, and transferring it to the foot and ankle area to restore function and stability. The muscle is carefully detached from its original location and reattached to blood vessels in the foot or ankle using microsurgical techniques to ensure adequate blood supply. This can help to improve the patient’s ability to walk, run, or perform other physical activities.

In the early stages of recovery, patients may experience some pain, swelling, and stiffness in the affected foot and ankle. Pain medications may be prescribed to help manage discomfort, and patients may be advised to keep the affected limb elevated to reduce swelling. Physical therapy is an important part of the recovery process, and patients will typically begin working with a physical therapist shortly after the surgery.

Mr. E. Murali Krishna from Hyderabad, underwent Heel Reconstruction and Microvascular Latissimus Dorsi Muscle Transfer, under the supervision of Dr Sasikanth Maddu, Consultant Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeon, Yashoda Hospitals.
