However, healing in good quality is mostly difficult due to the lack of adequate soft tissues to fill the gap in deep ulcers.[8] For patients whose PU is unable to recover properly with conservative treatment or those who have Stage III-IV PU wishing a rapid recovery, plastic surgery consultation is recommended.[9] Various techniques can be used in the surgical treatment of PU,[10 -14] mainly including musculocutaneous, fasciocutaneous, and perforator-based flaps.
