Anatomic variations in perforator arrangement may impair the surgeon's ability to effectively avoid rectus muscle transection without impairing flap perfusion in the DIEP flap.

Recently, the profunda artery perforator flap has become one of the popular flap choices for patients who desire autologous breast reconstruction but are not optimal candidates for deep inferior epiga...
Deep inferior epigastric perforator (DIEP) flaps are routinely elevated on a single dominant perforator from the deep epigastric vascular system. However, the single perforator may not always perfu...
In the setting of secondary breast reconstruction by deep inferior epigastric artery perforator (DIEP) flap, the mastectomy skin is usually deepithelialized and buried under the reconstructed breast. ...
The deep inferior epigastric perforator (DIEP) flap may be associated with less long-term donor-site morbidity compared with free muscle-sparing transverse rectus abdominis myocutaneous flap (MS-TRAM)...
To evaluate the safety and effectiveness of a lysine-derived urethane adhesive (TissuGlu® Surgical Adhesive) as a less invasive alternative to surgical drains in the abdominal donor site ...
Abdominal donor-site flaps, including the transverse rectus abdominis musculocutaneous (TRAM) and deep inferior epigastric artery perforator flaps(DIEP), are standard in autologous breast ...
The investigators intend to undertake a study to investigate the effect of radiotherapy on deep inferior epigastric perforator flap reconstructions (DIEP). Adjuvant post-mastectomy radioth...
The purpose of this study is to analyze an institution's experience with starting a subspecialized DIEP flap program and to determine whether other hospitals would benefit from instituting...
This study will Investigate whether or not preoperative computed tomography (CT) angiography will lower operative times and post operative complications for breast reconstruction performed...
A mass of tissue for transplantation that includes the skin and/or the SUBCUTANEOUS FAT, and the perforating blood vessel that traverses the underlying tissue to supply blood to the skin. Perforator flaps are named after the anatomical region or muscle from where they are transplanted and/or the perforating blood vessel.
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.
A surgical procedure to correct MYOPIA by CORNEAL STROMA subtraction. It involves the use of a microkeratome to make a lamellar dissection of the CORNEA creating a flap with intact CORNEAL EPITHELIUM. After the flap is lifted, the underlying midstroma is reshaped with an EXCIMER LASER and the flap is returned to its original position.
A surgical technique to correct REFRACTIVE ERRORS of the EYE, such as MYOPIA and ASTIGMATISM. In this method, a flap of CORNEAL EPITHELIUM is created by exposure of the area to dilute alcohol. The flap is lifted and then replaced after laser ablation of the subepithelial CORNEA.
A protrusion of abdominal structures through the retaining ABDOMINAL WALL. It involves two parts: an opening in the abdominal wall, and a hernia sac consisting of PERITONEUM and abdominal contents. Abdominal hernias include groin hernia (HERNIA, FEMORAL; HERNIA, INGUINAL) and VENTRAL HERNIA.
