Limb salvage procedures in previously operated, radiated, and vessel-depleted fields rely heavily on the use of microvascular tissue transfer. This report illustrates the feasibility of the use of ovarian vessels for the revascularization of a free flap. We have achieved success with the use of rectus abdominis muscle free flap for coverage of exposed vascular reconstruction in the 75-year-old soft tissue sarcoma patient with twice chemoradiated femoral and hypogastric defect, preventing external hemipelvectomy. © 2012 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
