BackgroundThe reverse posterior interosseous artery flap (PIAF) provides soft, thin, and pliable tissue for upper extremity reconstruction without sacrificing any major arteries of the hand. The authors performed a new technique that included one extra distally based subcutaneous vein within the pedicle to diminish venous insufficiency and they aimed to present the results of reconstruction with this technique.
