Soft-tissue reconstruction of the foot in diabetic patients has been always a complex problem. This is important especially in diabetic patients who have a long history of unstable and complicated wounds. Sensory neuropathy, ischemia, deformity, immunopathy, and susceptibility to infection are challenging factors for reconstruction in this population.1,2 Until the middle of the 1980s, large, chronic foot wounds in patients with diabetes mellitus were treated conservatively, and treatment of these patients with vascularized tissue was uncommon.
