| A 68-year-old diabetic developed a nonhealing left instep ulcer that progressed to osteomyelitis.
FIG. 18-21. After thorough debridement, a large cavity with exposed bone remained.
The gracilis muscle was again used to close a chronic draining wound over the fourth metatarsal of a diabetic.
FIG. 18-26. Appearance of ulcer.
Industrial injury to the lateral anterior compartment of the right leg and foot produced partial loss of the extensor muscles. The gracilis was used as a dynamic transplant and also replaced the unstable scar on the lower third of the leg and lateral malleolar region.
FIG. 18-29. The extent of the unstable scar and muscle defect.
A 16-year-old girl suffered a trigeminal and facial nerve injury during removal of a cerebellar tumor.
