Thoracodorsal Artery Perforator Flap Versus Conventional Free Flaps

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.

A Comparison of the Littler Flap With the Bipedicled Nerve Flap

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...

Sensory Reconstruction of the Digits

A retrospective study is conducted with 151 patients who has a soft tissue defect of digit treated with the sensate flaps from February 2005 to March 2014. Based on the different regions o...

Lateral Thigh Perforator (LTP) Flap for Autologous Breast Reconstruction

The lateral thigh perforator (LTP) flap was previously introduced as an alternative flap for autologous breast reconstruction when the abdomen is not suitable as a donor site. In this pros...

Extended Use of Chimeric Medial Sural Artery Perforator Flap for 3-Dimensional Defect Reconstruction.

The medial sural artery perforator (MSAP) flap has become increasingly popular because it is thin and pliable for small to moderate defect soft tissue reconstruction. Furthermore, chimeric MSAP flap, ...

Reconstruction of complex tissue defect of forearm with a chimeric flap composed of a sural neurocutaneous flap and a vascularized fibular graft: A case report.

One-stage reconstruction of composite bone and soft-tissue defects in the forearm remains a tough challenge. Here, we present a case of reconstruction of complex tissue defect at forearm with a chimer...

Thumb reconstruction with combination of the wrap-around flap prefabricated by medialis pedis perforator flap with nail bed and phalanx banked from the amputated thumb: A case report.

Thumb reconstruction has been a very challenging issue for hand surgeons. In this report, we present a case of thumb reconstruction with combination of the wrap-around flap prefabricated by the medial...

The planning of propeller perforator flap on previously transferred musculocutaneous flap via multidetector computed tomography for the reconstruction of tissue defect overlying Achilles tendon.

Recurrent branch of anterior interosseous artery perforator-based propeller flap for distal forearm injuries: Report of 2 cases.

Despite various options for the reconstruction of soft tissue defects in the distal forearm, perforator-based propeller flap is rarely used. Here, we presented 2 cases of distal forearm injuries that ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A mass of tissue for transplantation that includes the skin and/or the SUBCUTANEOUS FAT, and the perforating blood vessel that traverses the underlying tissue to supply blood to the skin. Perforator flaps are named after the anatomical region or muscle from where they are transplanted and/or the perforating blood vessel.

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.

Injuries of tissue other than bone. The concept is usually general and does not customarily refer to internal organs or viscera. It is meaningful with reference to regions or organs where soft tissue (muscle, fat, skin) should be differentiated from bones or bone tissue, as "soft tissue injuries of the hand".

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.

The assessment, treatment, and management of soft tissue injury or dysfunction. Therapy is designed to reduce tension and irritation in affected tissues and may include MASSAGE; muscle stretching, or direct pressure on muscles, connective tissue, and TRIGGER POINTS.
