The appliance of the reversed-flow sural flap is an alternative method for another procedures covering soft tissue skin defects, which are localized in the distal part of the leg.Based on three cases which were treated in The Department of Trauma Surgery and Emergency Medicine of the Medical University of Lublin, the procedure was introduced together with the disadvantages and advantages of this surgical method. All patients were treated for opened fractures of the leg (Gustillo IIIb).The complete healing of the soft tissue defects were obtained in two cases and in one case necrosis of the distal part of the flap occurred.The operating procedure on account of the simplicity is an alternative for more complicated surgical methods, which are used in covering tissue defects in this region.
