imageAbstractAlthough various reconstruction surgery techniques are available to repair posterior heel defects, the compound defects reconstruction is an ongoing surgical challenge. Complex, free tissue flaps are often clinically used in this repair operation but the techniques have some disadvantages, including intraoperative tedious dissections, vascular anastomosis, and postoperative thrombogenesis. Here, we present a single-stage procedure for Achilles tendon and its overlying skin defects repair with a complex posterior tibial artery perforator-based tissue flap on 3 patients. This method can repair the Achilles tendon and the soft tissue defects simultaneously in a relatively short operative time. The prognosis of the 3 operative patients described here was great for participating in exercise and daily work unassisted 18 to 26 months after operation. Clinical results indicate that our operative method can be effective in repair of Achilles tendon and its overlying skin defects without major complications.
