The Mangled Extremity Score and amputation: Time for a revision.

The Mangled Extremity Severity Score (MESS) was developed 25 years ago in an attempt to utilize the extent of skeletal and soft tissue injury, limb ischemia, shock, and age to predict the need for amp...

Reconstruction of the Foot and Ankle Using Pedicled or Free Flaps: Perioperative Flap Survival Analysis.

The purpose of this study is to determine the correlation between non-technical risk factors and the perioperative flap survival rate and to evaluate the choice of skin flap for the reconstruction of ...

Reconstruction of foot and ankle defects with a superthin innervated anterolateral thigh perforator flap.

An anterolateral thigh (ALT) perforator flap can be thinned to an extent to which it is vascularised only by the subdermal plexus. This study presents an innervated flap thinning technique and its app...

Do Skin Perforator Flaps Accommodate Foot Growth in Children after Reconstruction?

Backgrounds Whether or not the flap accommodates growth is unpredictable and remains to be determined. We hypothesized that perforator flaps may accommodate growth after reconstruction in children a...

Preoperative Platelet Count Predicts Lower Extremity Free Flap Thrombosis: A Multi-Institutional Experience.

Thrombocytosis in patients undergoing lower extremity free tissue transfer may be associated with a higher risk of microvascular complications. This study assessed whether preoperative platelet counts...

Effects of Targeted Lower Extremity Joint Training on Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Gait Abnormalities

This study is being done to test the possible benefits of task-specific focused ankle training using the Ankle-Bot on subjects with Multiple Sclerosis who have "foot-drop." The study also...

Targeted Lower Extremity Joint Training

The presence of foot drop limits normal gait. Our prior data has suggested that approximately 30% of MS patients have foot drop. Although the investigators have observed that "task-speci...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An anatomic severity scale based on the Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS) and developed specifically to score multiple traumatic injuries. It has been used as a predictor of mortality.

Entrapment of the distal branches of the posterior TIBIAL NERVE (which divides into the medial plantar, lateral plantar, and calcanial nerves) in the tarsal tunnel, which lies posterior to the internal malleolus and beneath the retinaculum of the flexor muscles of the foot. Symptoms include ankle pain radiating into the foot which tends to be aggravated by walking. Examination may reveal Tinel's sign (radiating pain following nerve percussion) over the tibial nerve at the ankle, weakness and atrophy of the small foot muscles, or loss of sensation in the foot. (From Foot Ankle 1990;11(1):47-52)

The distal extremity of the leg in vertebrates, consisting of the tarsus (ANKLE); METATARSUS; phalanges; and the soft tissues surrounding these bones.

Classification system for assessing impact injury severity developed and published by the American Association for Automotive Medicine. It is the system of choice for coding single injuries and is the foundation for methods assessing multiple injuries or for assessing cumulative effects of more than one injury. These include Maximum AIS (MAIS), Injury Severity Score (ISS), and Probability of Death Score (PODS).

Endonucleases that remove 5' DNA sequences from a DNA structure called a DNA flap. The DNA flap structure occurs in double-stranded DNA containing a single-stranded break where the 5' portion of the downstream strand is too long and overlaps the 3' end of the upstream strand. Flap endonucleases cleave the downstream strand of the overlap flap structure precisely after the first base-paired nucleotide, creating a ligatable nick.
