This study evaluates donor site outcomes in patients receiving radial forearm free flap reconstruction versus ulnar forearm free flap reconstruction. Patients who meet criteria for forearm...
Abstract Introduction For local reconstruction on upper extremity or as a distant micro vascular flap Lateral arm free flap is an excellent source of tissue with the advantages including ...
A simple device that objectively assesses flap perfusion - either as a stand-alone tool or an adjunct to the current monitoring method - would be a tremendous improvement in detection of e...
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.
Guided Bone Regeneration (GBR) is a reliable method to augment insufficient bone volume for implant placement. Membrane exposure is a major complication which is avoided by tension free pr...
Arteriovenous malformation (AVM) is a rare vascular lesion that is difficult to treat. Radical surgical resection followed by free flap transfer is currently one of the preferred treatments, and this ...
If the pedicle is compressed after microanastomosis during free flap reconstruction, additional tissue such as skin graft or vascularized flap is needed to avoid tension. Performing a skin graft direc...
Reconstructing soft tissue defect on the trochanteric area is challenging. Due to the significant complications associated with regional flap, free tissue transfer is an appropriate option. However, t...
Post-traumatic soft tissue defects sometimes require sequential flap coverage to achieve complete healing. In the era of propeller flaps, which were developed to reduce donor site morbidity, Feng et a...
Although free flap reconstruction has already gained widespread acceptance in pediatric patients, little is known about the outcome of free tissue transfer in head and neck reconstruction in pediatric...
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 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 surgical technique to correct REFRACTIVE ERRORS of the EYE, such as MYOPIA and ASTIGMATISM. In this method, a flap of CORNEAL EPITHELIUM is created by exposure of the area to dilute alcohol. The flap is lifted and then replaced after laser ablation of the subepithelial CORNEA.
The transfer of energy of a given form among different scales of motion. (From McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 6th ed). It includes the transfer of kinetic energy and the transfer of chemical energy. The transfer of chemical energy from one molecule to another depends on proximity of molecules so it is often used as in techniques to measure distance such as the use of FORSTER RESONANCE ENERGY TRANSFER.
Electron transfer through the cytochrome system liberating free energy which is transformed into high-energy phosphate bonds.
