Anterior capsule reconstruction (ACR) and latissimus dorsi transfers (LTs) have been proposed as solutions for irreparable subscapularis tears. The purpose of this study was to biomechanically assess the effects of ACR and LT separately and together for treatment of irreparable subscapularis tears.

Irreparable rotator cuff tears (ICTs) remain a challenging treatment dilemma. Superior capsule reconstruction (SCR) acts as a static stabilizer to decrease superior humeral head migration. Latissimus ...
Breast reconstruction is becoming an increasingly important and accessible component of breast cancer care. Among the many reconstructive options available, the latissimus dorsi flap has experience...
We provide a case report of reconstruction of a massive chest wall defect after recurrent phyllodes tumour resections. The reconstruction used a bipedicled groin and latissimus dorsi flap, with compos...
In immediate breast reconstruction using an extended latissimus dorsi musculocutaneous (eLDMC) flap, the volume of the flap decreases, which causes a secondary deformity of the breast shape. Since lit...
Well-vascularized tissue is required for successful reconstruction of a soft tissue defect in the lumbar region. There are several options for reconstruction; however, controversy exists regarding the...
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...
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...
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...
This trial will study the reconstruction of the anterior part of the mandible and the adjacent soft tissue parts by a mandibular prosthesis made in porous titanium, associated or not, to a...
A randomized clinical trial with two arms: irradiated women and non-irradiated women. Irradiated women are randomized to reconstruction with a latissimus Dorsi flap and an implant or a dee...
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)
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.
The anterior aspect of the casing that surrounds the natural CRYSTALLINE LENS.
Rebuilding of the ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT to restore functional stability of the knee. AUTOGRAFTING or ALLOGRAFTING of tissues is often used.
