Abstract

Use of medial gastrocnemius flap is part of the therapeutic array in soft tissue defect reconstruction for the upperthird part of the leg in adults. Indications for this type of flap remain quite rare in children. We will report our experience through two clinical cases and discuss the role of this type of flap in the treatment of soft tissue defect in children.
