Titanium plate reconstruction of the osseous defect after harvest of a composite free flap using the deep circumflex iliac artery.

Hernia formation following harvest of bicortical iliac crest bone occurs infrequently as a late complication and may lead to chronic pain at the donor site and rarely to obstruction and strangulation of bowel. We describe the use of a custom-made titanium plate used to reconstruct the iliac donor site following harvest of a DCIA composite free flap. A pre-operative 3D CT and stereolithography model of the ilium are used to fabricate a titanium plate of the desired shape and size. This plate is used to reconstruct the donor site defect at the time of primary surgery. This technique may reduce late complications following DCIA composite free flap harvest.
