We treated a case with left tibial adamantinoma by use of a contralateral fibular osteoadiposal flap. The donor site of conventional fibular osteocutaneous flap must be covered with a skin graft because if we close the donor skin defect directly, compartment syndrome might occur. We were able to close the donor skin defect because this combined type flap included only a small monitoring skin paddle. We present herein the utility of the osteoadiposal flap and show the value of a skin-sparing approach with a minimal aesthetic defect.
