Summary of "Algorithm for free perforator flap selection in lower extremity reconstruction based on 563 cases."

Microsurgical lower extremity reconstruction remains a challenge. The use of perforator flaps in lower extremity reconstruction is expanding. The objective of this article is to review our experience and present an algorithm to guide in the selection of the ideal free perforator flap that can be tailored to each lower extremity defect.

Clinical Trials [8560 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Thoracodorsal Artery Perforator Flap Versus Conventional Free Flaps

The purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy of the thoracodorsal artery perforator flap versus other conventional free flaps for reconstruction of soft tissue defects.

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...

Lateral Thigh Perforator (LTP) Flap for Autologous Breast Reconstruction

The lateral thigh perforator (LTP) flap was previously introduced as an alternative flap for autologous breast reconstruction when the abdomen is not suitable as a donor site. In this pros...

The Effects of Caffeine on Deep Inferior Epigastric Perforator (DIEP) Flap Perfusion

Women that require breast reconstruction and meet eligibility will be enrolled in this study. The study is being completed to determine the effect of caffeine in deep inferior epigastric p...

Evaluation of Perforator Phase Contrast Angiography in Developing Surgery Plans for Patients With Breast Cancer Undergoing Breast Reconstruction With Free-Flap Methods After Mastectomy

This phase II trial studies how well an imaging technique called perforator phase contrast angiography (pPCA) works in developing surgery plans for patients with breast cancer undergoing b...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Congenital structural abnormalities of the LOWER EXTREMITY.

The bones of the free part of the lower extremity in humans and of any of the four extremities in animals. It includes the FEMUR; PATELLA; TIBIA; and FIBULA.

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.
