Abstract

A very rare and dangerous fibula flap donor site complication is the compartment syndrome of the lower leg. This may be due to a variety of causes and may result in wide tissues defect leading to walking disturbances, if not immediately treated.
We report a challenging case of chimeric anterolateral thigh flap reconstruction to cover peroneus longus and calcaneal tendons exposure as a consequence of a donor site compartment syndrome after fibula flap harvesting.
