Abstract

Important advance have been made in the reconstruction of myelomeningocele during the last few years. Techniques of closure that use diverse tissues available in the back range from very simple to very complex. Most of them have become essential to the plastic surgeon. To facilitate a more efficient interdisciplinary approach, recent advances in knowledge of the vascular anatomy of the skin and specific clinical surgical considerations concerning skin grafts, cutaneous flaps, and musculocutaneous flaps are reviewed. A topographical division of the lesion that will permit a methodologically adequate treatment plan for congenital defects in the back, specifically in the thoracic, thoracolumbar, and lumbosacral regions is suggested.
