Iterative lesions of the soft parts around the knee are critical clinical situations involving the functional prognosis of the joint, especially in the presence of a total prosthesis. We present three clinical cases treated with the medial gastrocnemius muscle flap. It is a simple, reliable, fast flap, not sacrificing major vessels or leg, easy to remove, large volume, covering the anterior side of the knee and with a good functional result with minimal risk of infection and a very acceptable prosthesis survival rate.
