Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS) is a chronic, inflammatory disease affecting the apocrine glands of the axillary, groin and mammary regions with significant physical and psychosocial sequela. Surgical excision of the affected tissue is the criterion standard treatment. Advanced cases of axillary HS are associated with high rates of recurrence and require extensive surgical resection with challenging reconstruction associated with risk of postoperative complications. The most effective method for reconstruction of the axilla after excision of HS is yet to be identified. The aim of the study was to evaluate the results of the use of pedicled Thoraco Dorsal Artery Perforator (TDAP) flap as a method of reconstruction for axillary effect result from wide surgical excision as a line of treatment for stage II and III HS of the axilla.
