We present the case of a 45-year-old man with an extensive radionecrotic ulcer of the anterior aspect of the thigh and exposure of the femur.
Difficulty in the revascularisation of a free omental transfer due to radiation damage to the recipient vessels led us to delay excision of the defect and to store the flap temporarily in a plastic bag close to the recipient site; 48 hours later its satisfactory appearance allowed excision of the defect and successful final inset of the omentum. Advantages of this procedure are discussed.
