Resumen

DAGNINO, Bruno L. et al. Use of perforator flaps for treatment of severe axillary and sternal hidradenitis suppurativa. Rev Chil Cir [online]. 2017, vol.69, n.5, pp.397-403. ISSN 0718-4026.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.rchic.2017.05.001.

Aim:

To present a brief series of reconstructions with perforator flaps in severe cases of hidradenitis suppurativa patients and results.

Patients and methods:

Seven axillary and one sternal case in five patients were operated on. All patients were in stage II or III according to Hurley classification, and were referred after at least one year of medical treatment with no satisfactory result. The plastic surgery team performed both, resection and reconstruction in all cases. Perforator vessels were marked using a handheld Doppler device.

Results:

One partial flap failure occurred, which healed with standard wound care. After a median follow up of 26 months, no relapse of hidradenitis suppurativa occurred. All reconstructions evolved with full functional results.

Conclusion:

Perforator flaps are a good choice in the treatment of severe cases of hidradenitis suppurativa, both sternal and axillary. It should be considered in the armamentarium of any plastic surgeon treating patients with this condition, once the medical treatment has failed.
