Free flap transfer to the lower limb in chronic post-traumatic conditions is known to have a higher complication rate, with flap loss in up to 10% of cases, due mainly to the recipient vessels (Godina: Plast Reconstruct Surg 78:285-291, 1986]). The dissection of these vessels often leads to refractory spasm, due to the so-called perivascular post-traumatic disease (PVPTD) (Khouri [Clin Plast Surg 19:773-785, 1992]). A case is presented of the use of a fairly new spasmolytic maneuver, i.e., in vivo vascular freezing, in a patient who developed intractable spasm of the recipient artery.
