Deep Circumflex Iliac Artery Perforator Flap
Ever since the successful transplantation of the deep circumflex iliac artery flap associated with the iliac bone flap which was reported by Taylor (Taylor and Watson 1978; Taylor et al. 1979a, b) in 1979, the iliac chimeric flap has been widely used in clinic work and has become a good method to restore bone and soft-tissue defects. However, the traditional iliac bone flap was hard to separate bone from skin and the axial line of the flap should be kept the same with the iliac which made it inconvenient to use. In 2007, the deep circumflex iliac artery chimeric perforator flap was claimed by Kang (2007) which made up the disadvantage and therefore turned out a satisfied clinical application.
