Free functional gracilis muscle transfer for reconstruction of massive ectopic calcification following a lower extremity fracture: a case report and overview of the literature


Schmitt, Jürgen W; Bode, Beata; Dumont, Charles E (2006). Free functional gracilis muscle transfer for reconstruction of massive ectopic calcification following a lower extremity fracture: a case report and overview of the literature. Archives of Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgery, 127(1):61-66.

Abstract

We present a patient with massive posttraumatic ectopic calcification in the lower extremity. The patient complained of an increasing tender soft tissue mass with signs of acute inflammation and foot dorsiflexion weakness following a tibial fracture for 34years. A large radiopaque mass was resected and reconstructed using a free functional gracilis muscle transfer, resulting in recovery of stable soft tissue and foot dorsiflexion. The resected material showed highly fibrosed soft tissue with extensive dystrophic calcifications. There were no sign of recurrence at 18-month follow-up
