The aim of this study was to represent the dorsalis pedis (DP) flap on sectioned images and surface models using Visible Korean for medical education and clinical training in the field of maxillofacial reconstructive surgery. Serially sectioned images of the foot were obtained from a cadaver. The important structures in the sectioned images were outlined and stacked to create a surface model. The PDF file (53MB) of the assembled models is accessible for free download on the Department of Anatomy at Ajou University School of Medicine Web site ( In this file, the significant anatomic structures of the DP flap can be inspected in the sectioned images. All surface models and stereoscopic structures of the DP flap are describedin real time. Wehope that these state-of-theart sectioned images, outlined images, and surface models will help students and trainees gain a better understanding of the DP flap anatomy.
