Latissimus Dorsi Flap Breast Reconstruction-A Nationwide Inpatient Sample Review.

The latissimus dorsi (LD) myocutaneous flap has been a long term standard for breast reconstruction. The variable indications for the LD flap have not been statistically examined because of the relati...

Successful primary repair of chronic latissimus dorsi rupture: a case report and review of the literature.

Repair of comminuted fracture of the lower patellar pole.

Comminuted fracture of the lower patellar pole has characteristics of both patellar fracture and avulsion of the patellar tendon. Therefore, components of both injury types should be considered during...

Latissimus dorsi flap with vascularized lymph node transfer for lymphedema treatment: Technique, outcomes, indications and review of literature.

One of the surgical treatment options for lymphedema is vascularized lymph node transfer (VLNT). We present our experience with latissimus dorsi (LD) flap based VLNT for lymphedema treatment.

Augmented Versus Nonaugmented Repair of Acute Achilles Tendon Rupture: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis.

Although simple end-to-end repair of the Achilles tendon is common, many augmented repair protocols have been implemented for acute Achilles tendon rupture. However, whether augmented repair is better...

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...

Brachial plexus avulsion injury (BPAI) caused by traction injury, especially total root avulsion, represents a severe handicap for the patient. Despite recent progress in diagnosis and mic...

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)

Tearing away of the CORTICAL BONE fragment at the location of a strong ligament or tendon attachment. The bone fragment detachment site often occurs near a soft site (e.g., GROWTH PLATE) at the base where LIGAMENTS; TENDONS; or JOINT CAPSULES attach. In younger patients it is most often caused by a sudden forceful pull on a tendon in the opposite direction of the bone movement. In the elderly it is associated with osteoporotic INSUFFICIENCY FRACTURES.

The top layer of the back muscles whose function is to move the SCAPULA. This group of muscles consists of the trapezius, latissimus dorsi, rhomboid major, rhomboid minor and levator scapulae.

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.
