The management of severe and recalcitrant diabetic foot ulcers is challenging. Distraction osteogenesis is accompanied by vascularization and regeneration of the surrounding tissues. Longitudinal distraction of the proximal tibia stimulates increased and prolonged blood flow to the distal tibia. However, the effects of transverse distraction of the proximal tibia cortex on severe and recalcitrant diabetic foot ulcers are largely unknown.

Tibial fractures are devastating injuries and a cause of significant morbidity. There is limited information describing the length of time it takes for these injuries to heal. The aim of this study wa...
Mandibular hypoplasia can develop transversely, sagittally, or in both diameters simultaneously. Current techniques achieve either sagittal or transverse expansion with different surgeries. Here, we p...
To compare two distraction osteogenesis techniques in post-traumatic tibial nonunion patients with composite bone and soft tissue defects.
Tibial component of total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is designed according to morphology of proximal tibia to a large extent. Owing to racial difference, current design of tibial component based on Cauca...
Delayed healing of anterior tibial stress fractures in athletes is related to high tensional forces acting across a putative fracture gap. These forces lead to crack propagation and create strains tha...
A tourniquet is used to stop abundant bleeding when simple compression is not effective. The investigators will study the vascular suffering of the tourniquets according to their location ...
The aim of the study is the comparison of pouch function with two different sizes of limb of transverse coloplasty pouch after rectal resection and total mesorectal excision.
The hypothesis of this work is that distraction is an effective way to modify the feeling and experience of chronic lumbar pain by modifying the functioning of the prefrontal cortex. The ...
Evaluate the INFUSE/MASTERGRAFT™ Delayed Healing Device as an alternative/replacement to autograft in the treatment of tibial delayed healing.
The purpose of this study is to assess whether there is a difference between the TomoFix and Ellipse Intramedullary HTO Nail System in terms of bone regeneration in the tibial wedge by per...
The renal tubule portion that extends from the BOWMAN CAPSULE in the KIDNEY CORTEX into the KIDNEY MEDULLA. The proximal tubule consists of a convoluted proximal segment in the cortex, and a distal straight segment descending into the medulla where it forms the U-shaped LOOP OF HENLE.
Bone lengthening by gradual mechanical distraction. An external fixation device produces the distraction across the bone plate. The technique was originally applied to long bones but in recent years the method has been adapted for use with mandibular implants in maxillofacial surgery.
An apraxia characterized by the affected limb having involuntary, autonomous, and purposeful behaviors that are perceived as being controlled by an external force. Often the affected limb interferes with the actions of the normal limb. Symptoms develop from lesions in the CORPUS CALLOSUM or medial frontal cortex, stroke, infarction, and neurodegenerative diseases (e.g., CREUTZFELDT-JAKOB SYNDROME, corticobasal degeneration).
White matter pathway, flanked by nuclear masses, consisting of both afferent and efferent fibers projecting between the cerebral cortex and the brainstem. It consists of three distinct parts: an anterior limb, posterior limb, and genu.
The U-shaped portion of the renal tubule in the KIDNEY MEDULLA, consisting of a descending limb and an ascending limb. It is situated between the PROXIMAL KIDNEY TUBULE and the DISTAL KIDNEY TUBULE.

Alternative medicine are whole medical systems that did not fit with conventional medicine as they have completely different philosophies and ideas on the causes of disease, methods of diagnosis and approaches to treatment. Although often overlapping, co...
