The pectoralis major myocutaneous island flap has been used for a one-stage reconstruction following ablative surgery for stomal recurrence. The skin island of this flap is supplied by the perforating musculature vessels of the thoracicoacromial artery. The flap can be elevated primarily and is used in a one-stage reconstruction. The new stoma is created in the center of the skin island, and the great vessels are covered by the pectoralis major muscle pedicle. The surgical technique as performed in seven successful cases is presented.
