The benefits of total transmetatarsal amputation (TMA) over higher level amputation are well known. However, there are no studies evaluating the effects of first or the first two ray sparing transmetatarsal amputation with flap coverage. We evaluated this approach in regards to functional outcome and to identify long-term complications.

The best fixation method for an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) graft is debated. The tibial fixation of tendon grafts is the principal weak point for mechanical and anatomical reasons. Preserving th...
This historical literature review of ear reconstruction differs from much of the published literature in that it focuses on the biographies of the innovators and evangelists of ear reconstruction rath...
To investigate the feasibility and effectiveness of a novel remnant-preserving anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction with bidirectional barbed suture.
Laparoscopic distal gastrectomy (LDG) is a widely used minimally invasive surgery. Following LDG, Billroth-I (B-I) provides physiological reconstruction by preserving the duodenal passage but results ...
Tissue expander design in breast reconstruction has evolved substantially over the last 60 years. An insightful appreciation of breast aesthetics, coupled with competition among industry partners, has...
Anterior cruciate ligament injury is very common knee injury. Especially Anterior cruciate ligament complete rupture leads to knee joint instability and degenerative change of the knee. An...
This is a monocentric, prospective and randomized trial to compare two different techniques used in normal practice for the reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament in arthroscopy....
The goal of this clinical research study is to evaluate a new two-stage approach (delayed-immediate reconstruction) to breast reconstruction in women who may require post-mastectomy radiat...
The purpose of this study is to asses functional biomechanical outcomes and patient reported outcome measures following single bundle ACL reconstruction (ACL-R) compared to single bundle A...
The purpose of this study is to examine different outcomes of breast reconstruction in women who are treated for breast cancer with skin sparing mastectomy and subsequently a primary impla...
Penetrating electromagnetic radiation emitted when the inner orbital electrons of an atom are excited and release radiant energy. X-ray wavelengths range from 1 pm to 10 nm. Hard X-rays are the higher energy, shorter wavelength X-rays. Soft x-rays or Grenz rays are less energetic and longer in wavelength. The short wavelength end of the X-ray spectrum overlaps the GAMMA RAYS wavelength range. The distinction between gamma rays and X-rays is based on their radiation source.
That portion of the electromagnetic spectrum immediately below the visible range and extending into the x-ray frequencies. The longer wavelengths (near-UV or biotic or vital rays) are necessary for the endogenous synthesis of vitamin D and are also called antirachitic rays; the shorter, ionizing wavelengths (far-UV or abiotic or extravital rays) are viricidal, bactericidal, mutagenic, and carcinogenic and are used as disinfectants.
The spectrometric analysis of fluorescent X-RAYS, i.e. X-rays emitted after bombarding matter with high energy particles such as PROTONS; ELECTRONS; or higher energy X-rays. Identification of ELEMENTS by this technique is based on the specific type of X-rays that are emitted which are characteristic of the specific elements in the material being analyzed. The characteristic X-rays are distinguished and/or quantified by either wavelength dispersive or energy dispersive methods.
Penetrating, high-energy electromagnetic radiation emitted from atomic nuclei during NUCLEAR DECAY. The range of wavelengths of emitted radiation is between 0.1 - 100 pm which overlaps the shorter, more energetic hard X-RAYS wavelengths. The distinction between gamma rays and X-rays is based on their radiation source.
The scattering of x-rays by matter, especially crystals, with accompanying variation in intensity due to interference effects. Analysis of the crystal structure of materials is performed by passing x-rays through them and registering the diffraction image of the rays (CRYSTALLOGRAPHY, X-RAY).
