Introduction: Electrical injuries generally represent serious lesions with deforming sequels for the patient. Depending on the extension and localization of the injury, several techniques of reconstruction may be used, ranging from simple skin grafts to more complex repairs with the use of free flaps. Objective: The objective of this work is to demonstrate the use of the latissimus dorsi myocutaneous flap in the reconstruction of injuries caused by serious electrical burns. Method: Seven patients have been treated, victims of high voltage, injuries with lesions in several regions of the body. Results: In all cases, results were satisfactory, with good return of the patients to normal activities.
