A retrospective study was undertaken of the patients that were subjected to leg reconstruction in the Military Central Hospital to present defects tisulares, during the period of September 2003 to January 2006. Objective. To describe the experience in microsurgical and locoregional reconstructive procedures for covering titular defects of the leg. Methods. Retrospective study of patients operated by leg reconstruction of September 2003 to January 2006. Results. We obtained a total of 687 surgeries, 103 were leg reconstructions (15%). Prevailing the feminine sex and age of less than 20 years; the most common procedure was the graf skin autologus 72 cases (70%), flaps 15 (15%) and both in 16 cases (15%). free flaps 8 (8%), flaps regional 16 (16%), flap local 5 (5%); the most frequent defects are lesions of skin pure (55%) of dimensions of less than 10 cm² (30%) and of the inferior third of the leg (37%). Conclusion. The experience that is counted for the realization of procedures microsurgical is scarce and for flaps locoregionals of reverse flow are zero.
