Trans-Pubic Abdominal Flap for Reconstruction of the Labia Majora
A flap is described for recreation of the labia majora. The flap was designed for a young woman who developed vulvar squamous cell carcinoma in-situ after immunosuppression for treatment of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. The patient underwent removal of the labia majora, and was reconstructed with a bi-lobed abdominal flap tunneled through the mons pubis. The flap produced a normal genital contour and has functioned well to seven years follow-up.
