A report of 19 cases of large spina bifida cystica defects closed with bilateral bipedicled latissimus dorsi musculocutaneous flaps is presented. This procedure offers a distinct advantage over other procedures used currently: (1) any large defect in the thoracic, lumbar, and sacral area can be repaired without tension; (2) the flaps have good blood supply; (3) they require no delay, and operative time and blood loss are minimized; and (4) excellent results have been obtained using this safe, predictable technique with a minimum of complications.
