Özet

The use of a cross-leg free flap and consequent limb salvage was successfully performed in a 10-year-old boy with a compound open fracture of the tibia, involving extensive skin and soft-tissue loss. This method should be kept in mind, as it may sometimes, in an emergency situation, lead to lower-extremity salvage, as in the case reported.
