Abstract

In reconstructing a large defect of the vulva, we combined the gluteal fold and the pudendal thigh flaps and made a bilobed flap. Using this gluteal fold pudendal thigh bilobed flap, we reconstructed a vagina with sufficient depth and width. The surrounding skin defect was simultaneously reconstructed. Sensation was intact in all areas of the reconstruction. In addition, the sutured lines of both donor sites are hidden in the gluteal and inguinal folds. Thus, the gluteal fold pudendal thigh bilobed flap seems to be ideal for reconstructing large vulvar defects.
