Laparoscopic ventral hernia repair (VHR) is usually performed by reducing the contents in the hernia sac from the abdominal cavity and then covering the defect from the inside with a mesh,...
The aim of this study is to determine whether three-dimensional tranesophageal echocardiography (3D TEE) assessment of ostium secundum atrial septal defect (ASD II) may be as efficient as ...
A retrospective study is conducted with 59 patients who has a combination of soft tissue and digital nerve defects following trauma treated using the Littler flap or bipedicle nerve flap.P...
The primary closure of the vertical posteromedial thigh (vPMT) free flap donor site is very important to minimize donor site morbidity and maximize cosmetic appearance. However, sometimes due to the d...
Optimal Reconstruction Method for Large Radionecrosis Following Breast Cancer Treatment: Utility of Free Transverse Rectus Abdominis Myocutaneous Flap Using Contralateral Internal Mammary Artery as Recipient.
In extensive radionecrosis following radiotherapy for breast cancer (BC) treatment, the defect after excision can be reconstructed with a transverse rectus abdominis myocutaneous (TRAM) flap. In this ...
High failure rate for recurrent palatal fistulas closure pose a great challenge to plastic surgeons. Tongue and facial artery musculomucosal (FAMM) flaps are the more commonly used flaps for closure o...
The reconstruction of oral defects after oncological surgery is not an easy task for head and neck surgeons. The main aim of this work is to evaluate the functionality, viability and safety of subment...
To determine the efficacy of a new surgical technique involving use of a contralateral autologous internal limiting membrane (ILM) free flap for closure of a refractory macular hole (MH).
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 synthetic retinoid that is used orally as a chemopreventive against prostate cancer and in women at risk of developing contralateral breast cancer. It is also effective as an antineoplastic agent.
Tumors or cancer of the TONGUE.
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 severe congenital restriction of TONGUE movement, resulting from fusion or adherence of the tongue to the floor of the mouth. In partial ankyloglossia (tongue-tie) the LINGUAL FRENUM is abnormally short, or is attached too close to the tip of the tongue. OMIM: 106280
