Surgery is still the procedure of choice in treatment of advanced vulvar cancer. Radical vulvar surgery is often associated with severe vulvar and inguinal skin and fat-tissue deficits resulting from wide “butterfly” shape resection. Primary closure of large vulvar and inguinal defects is hampered by lack of tissue. The study presents the case of using prolene mesh in filling up the tissue defects over femoral vein and artery after radical excision of enlarged inguinal superficial, femoral, and pelvic nodes to prevent vessels in hiatus saphenus. It is the first report describing the use of prolene mesh in such a procedure.
