Core Tip This is a case report of a successful microsurgical reconstruction in a patient with sickle cell disease who presented with an extensive lower leg ulcer during a 12-year course of the disease. We provide several recommendations for plasmapheresis and blood transfusions before the surgical reconstruction, and the anticoagulation protocol during the procedure and the postoperative period. This case description is intended to increase our colleagues’ motivation to perform microsurgical reconstruction with a safer approach in the presence of hematologic diseases with elevated risk of thrombosis.
