Latissimus Dorsi and Teres Major Tendon Avulsions in Cricketers: A Case Series and Literature Review.

Acute latissimus dorsi tendon injuries are uncommon, having not previously been described in cricketers. The leg spinner's stock ball bowling technique and the fast bowler's back-of-the-hand slow ball...

Outcome of 122 delayed breast reconstruction following post-mastectomy radiotherapy: The scarless latissimus dorsi flap with tissue expansion technique.

Delayed breast reconstruction with tissue expansion may be risky after radiotherapy, due to the poor skin quality. To permit the use of the tissue expansion procedure, we propose a scarless latissimus...

Bilateral elastofibroma dorsi: a case report of an uncommon and under-diagnosed tumor.

Elastofibroma dorsi is a rare benign tumor of the back, located between the latissimus dorsi and the rhomboid muscle. In most cases it is unilateral, but in up to 10% it occurs on both sides. The etio...

Scalp Reconstruction With Free Latissimus Dorsi Flap in a Patient With Giant Cutis Verticis Gyrata.

Cutis verticis gyrata is a rare skin disorder characterized by formation of thick skin folds and grooves. Because of the risk of malignant transformation, these lesions must be surgically excised. In ...

Endoscopic-assisted Repair of Neglected Rupture or Rerupture After Primary Repair of Extensor Hallucis Longus Tendon.

Rerupture of the extensor hallucis longus tendon after primary repair and neglected rupture of the tendon poses surgical challenges to orthopedic surgeons. Open exploration and repair of the tendon en...

Secondary Breast Reconstruction With a Flap of Skin From the Back

The purpose of this study is to examine the different outcomes of breast reconstruction in women who are treated for breast cancer with mastectomy and subsequently have delayed breast reco...

PECI/SPB vs Intercostal Nerve Block for the Management of Postoperative Pain in Latissimus Dorsi Flap Reconstruction

Regional Anesthesia is a procedure in which numbing medication is injected around nerves that transmit pain from areas involved in a surgery. The objective is to block the nerves so a pati...

Perioperative Care of Breast Reconstruction With Latissimus Dorsi Flap and Tissue Expander: Early Discharge Protocol in a Day Surgery Setting

The pedicled latissimus dorsi flap is a piece of tissue taken from the back that is used to reconstruct the breast after cancerous tissue is removed. Over the years, improvements in surgic...

Operative Versus Non-Operative Treatment of Achilles Tendon Rupture

This study is intended to determine whether the optimal treatment of acute Achilles tendon ruptures is surgical repair or functional bracing. Our hypotheses are surgical repair will: 1) R...

E-Stim and Achilles Tendon Repair Study

Calf muscle atrophy (muscle degeneration) is common following Achilles tendon repair due to the immobilization period necessary to ensure optimal healing. The purpose of this study is to ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An operation that uses stimulated latissimus dorsi muscle (SKELETAL MUSCLE VENTRICLE) to assist cardiac function. The latissimus dorsi muscle is mobilized from the chest wall and moved into the thorax through the bed of the resected 2nd or 3rd rib. The muscle is then wrapped around the left and right ventricles and stimulated to contract during cardiac systole by means of an implanted burst-stimulator. (Stedman, 26th ed)

Autologous skeletal muscle that is wrapped around the heart and electrically stimulated in order to provide mechanical heart assistance. The latissimus dorsi muscle is commonly used to form this ventricle that functions to independently augment cardiac performance by pumping in series with the heart.

Inflammation of the synovial lining of a tendon sheath. Causes include trauma, tendon stress, bacterial disease (gonorrhea, tuberculosis), rheumatic disease, and gout. Common sites are the hand, wrist, shoulder capsule, hip capsule, hamstring muscles, and Achilles tendon. The tendon sheaths become inflamed and painful, and accumulate fluid. Joint mobility is usually reduced.

Surgical procedure by which a tendon is incised at its insertion and placed at an anatomical site distant from the original insertion. The tendon remains attached at the point of origin and takes over the function of a muscle inactivated by trauma or disease.

A band of fibrous tissue that attaches the apex of the PATELLA to the lower part of the tubercle of the TIBIA. The ligament is actually the caudal continuation of the common tendon of the QUADRICEPS FEMORIS. The patella is embedded in that tendon. As such, the patellar ligament can be thought of as connecting the quadriceps femoris tendon to the tibia, and therefore it is sometimes called the patellar tendon.
