Abstract
We performed 3 cases of pudendal-thigh flaps in patients with congenital absence of

the vagina from June, 1996 through February, 1999. Pudendal-thigh flaps are posterior

labial artery axial flaps based on the terminal vessels of the internal pudendal artery.

The flaps are raised bilaterally in the groin crease just lateral to the labia majora and

are then transposed toward the midline and sutured together to form a neovagina. With

adequate flap dissection, reliable blood supply is maintained. Thus, complications such as

flap necrosis do not occur and early wound heating is possible. It is a relatively simple

technique which can be completed with little blood loss. This method can be completed

in one stage, and the prolonged use of stents of dilaters is not necessary, since the

reconstructed vagina is stable. The linear scars of the donor sites are well hidden in the

groin crease and perineum. Normal function is maintained postopertively without change

in sensation The authors report these methods with a review of the literature.
