French term or phrase: les multiple lambeaux
Nous réparons le tendon extenseur par souture en "8" au moyen de Polysorb 4-0 et nous utilisons les multiple **lambeaux** présents après débridement pour fermer au moyen de Monosoft 4-0.

I am proofreading a translation that used "flaps" for "lambeaux", but I can't find any reference to flaps. All I can find is scraps, or tatters. Any suggestions?
Thanks
