Abstract An extended hamstring V-Y myocutaneous advancement flap is described that may be used to cover unusually large defects in the ischial region. Technical points that allow a large amount of flap advancement are discussed. Because of its large size, the flap can be raised and used on repeated occasions to repair defects from recurrent ischial pressure sores. Two patients are presented in whom the same flap was used repeatedly on multiple occasions, demonstrating the potential for preservation of future options in such patients when this flap is used.
