The purpose of this study is to introduce a new operative technique for reconstruction of fingertip degloving injury.
Incidence of fingertip degloving injury is common and can result in functional morbidity. A cross-finger flap based on the dorsal branch artery (DBA) including sensory nerve is a useful reconstructive technique.In our modification, the innervated sensory flap is vascularized by the DBA, both its pedicle is narrow and its coverage is extended, the projecting tip of exposed distal phalanx of adjacent digits therefore can be wrapped.
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

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...
The sensory recovery of the breast remains an undervalued aspect of breast reconstruction and surgical reinnervation is not regarded as a priority by most reconstructive surgeons. A prospe...
The purpose of this study is to examine the different outcomes of breast reconstruction in women who are treated for breast cancer with mastectomy and subsequently have delayed breast reco...
The study has two objectives: 1. To obtain endoscopic and colonoscopic biopsies to harvest and culture intestinal crypts from human tissue to produce organoids. These organoids wil...
Cesarean section is the most common surgical procedure performed on women. Over the years minor variations of each surgical step have been introduced, and cesarean sections are not standar...
Providing soft tissue coverage for finger neurocutaneous defects presents aesthetic and sensory challenges. A common source for reconstruction of soft tissue defects of the fingers is the same finger....
Previous authors have immobilized the injured hand or digits following cross finger flaps.
The use of two cross finger flaps from one digit has not been previously reported and the technique raises concerns regarding donor finger morbidity. In this paper, the authors report on a case series...
Various flaps are used for skin defects of the dorsal hand and fingers. A sensory flap is not essential, but a thin and good color-matched flap is suitable, and donor site mobility of the flap should ...
The survival of engineered cardiac muscle 'grafts' to the epicardium is limited by vascularization post-transplantation in rat models. In this article, we describe the methodology of a novel rat model...
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 mass of tissue, including skin and muscle, that has been cut away from surrounding areas for transplantation.
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.
Ulnar neuropathies caused by mechanical compression of the nerve at any location from its origin at the BRACHIAL PLEXUS to its terminations in the hand. Common sites of compression include the retroepicondylar groove, cubital tunnel at the elbow (CUBITAL TUNNEL SYNDROME), and Guyon's canal at the wrist. Clinical features depend on the site of injury, but may include weakness or paralysis of wrist flexion, finger flexion, and ulnar innervated intrinsic hand muscles, and impaired sensation over the ulnar aspect of the hand, fifth finger, and ulnar half of the ring finger.

Compression of the ULNAR NERVE in the cubital tunnel, which is formed by the two heads of the flexor carpi ulnaris muscle, humeral-ulnar aponeurosis, and medial ligaments of the elbow. This condition may follow trauma or occur in association with processes which produce nerve enlargement or narrowing of the canal. Manifestations include elbow pain and PARESTHESIA radiating distally, weakness of ulnar innervated intrinsic hand muscles, and loss of sensation over the hypothenar region, fifth finger, and ulnar aspect of the ring finger.

Organ transplantation is the moving of an organ from one body to another or from a donor site to another location on the patient's own body, for the purpose of replacing the recipient's damaged or absent organ. The emerging field of regenerative ...
