Hidradenitis suppurativa Research

Author(s): Varkarakis G, Daniels J, Coker K, Oswald T, Akdemir O, Lineaweaver WC

In our series, 15 patients underwent 21 procedures for wide resection of axillary hidradenitis with coverage by posteriorly based Limberg transposition flaps. Twenty flaps (95%) healed without axillary contracture. One failed flap required skin graft coverage. Transposition flap coverage in these patients was a reliable, single-stage reconstruction allowing prompt arm movement.
