The aim of the study is to compare maxillary obturator versus submental artery flap after partial maxillectomy in the aspect of Quality of life outcomes.
1. Introduction: The most common complication of loop ileostomies closure for rectal cancer patients undergoing a low anterior rectum resection, is the superficial surgical site...
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 ...
The aim of the present project is to investigate whether use of biological mesh at the donor site of the rotation flap in closure of the abdominal wall reduce the frequency of incisional h...
A 21-year-old female patient underwent wide excision of the buccal mucosa and tongue as well as selective neck dissection due to squamous cell carcinoma on the left side of the tongue. She had a sever...
The purpose of this study was to illustrate the submental island flap elevation technique with simultaneous level I neck dissection followed by the inset and reconstruction of an oropharyngeal defect.
Recent studies described that in approximately 14% to 16% of cases of macular holes treated with the inverted internal limiting membrane flap technique, the hole was closed only by a thin layer of inv...
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...
Owing to the high recurrence rates of ischial pressure sores, surgeons should consider the possibility of future secondary flap surgery during flap selection. The purpose of this article is to present...
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
