SUN Ming, YU Sheng-jun, YANG Zhi-yong, et al. Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Yantaishan Hospital, Yantai 264001, China  
Objective To study the feasibility of using medial descending branch of the femoral lateral circumflex artery to repair superficial palmar arch defect. Methods From May 1999 to February 2004, 8 cases of superficial palmar arch defect caused by severe injury of the palm were treated by transpositioning medial descending branch of the femoral lateral circumflex artery. The length of the artery harvested ranged from 9 cm to 15 cm. Results All fingers and flaps survived with satisfactory blood circulation and function. Blood supply of the donor site as well as the muscle strength was normal. Conclusion The anatomic structure of the medial descending branch of the femoral lateral circumflex artery was similar to that of the superficial palmar arch. Its constant anatomic position makes it easy to dissect. Transfer of medial descending branch of the femoral lateral circumflex artery is best indicated in superficial palmar arch defect accompanied with skin loss.
