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.
