Abstract

Pressure ulcer is the leading complication in bedridden patients (1) and typically requires multiple surgeries for debridement and vaccum sealing drainage (VSD); after the deep sinus is cleaned, a second surgery can be performed to close the wound (2). In this article we describe our successful primary repair of a massive pressure ulcer on the hip.
