Abstract

Background.-Hidradenitis suppurativa is a very debilitating disease, treated by antibiotics and excision. The reconstruction is usually done by secondary wound healing and/or split-thichness skin graft. The aim of this study was to evaluate the reconstruction of the axilla with local perforator flaps as a single stage surgical treatment. Methods.-This was a monocentric retrospective study conducted between November 2013 and June 2015. We included the patients with a severe axillary localization of the disease. Between 6 months and 1 year postoperatively, we noted length of complete healing, complications, patients satisfaction score about the surgery, DASH functional score, maximum abduction angle of the arm, and recurrence of the disease. Results.-Thirteen patients were included, for a total of seventeen affected axillae. We performed seven thoracodorsal artery perforator flaps, seven lateral intercostal artery perfo-rator flaps and three serratus anterior artery perforator flaps. The mean duration of follow-up was 279.1 AE 84.1 days (180-365). The average complete healing time was 20.5 AE 13.5 days (10-60). Six axillae were compounded (35%). The average recurrence rate of HS was 0%. The average Annales de chirurgie plastique esthétique (2019) 64, 68-77
