Dr. Leena Jain, Mumbai's leading plastic surgeon, explains the limb reconstruction procedure and its advantages.
When a bone is injured, or cancerous tissue from a limb is removed, bony reconstruction aims to repair the damage. Dr. Leena Jainstates that by using conventional bone-grafting techniques defects up to 4cm in length can be successfully treated if the old bone is adequately vascularized.
A free vascularized bone graft is useful when there is a longer bone gap, the surrounding areas are scarred, and the soft tissue coverage is inadequate.
