Introduction

Although sclerotherapy for venous malformation (VM) is less invasive than other treatments, it is not a curative treatment and needs to be performed repeatedly over the patient's lifetime.[1] In contrast, complete resection of VM can be a curative treatment, but the reconstruction after resection remains challenging from both functional and aesthetic standpoints. We herein report two cases of reconstruction using a vascularized nerve flap combined with a perforator flap after resection of VM involving a nerve.
