Increased flap weight and decreased perforator number predict fat necrosis in DIEP breast reconstruction
(American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 2013-05-28)
BACKGROUND: Compromised perfusion in autologous breast reconstruction results in fat necrosis and flap loss. Increased flap weight with fewer perforator vessels may exacerbate imbalances in flap perfusion. We studied deep ...
Patient-reported assessment of functional gait outcomes following superior gluteal artery perforator reconstruction
(American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 2013-08-14)
BACKGROUND: Harvesting the superior gluteal artery perforator (SGAP) flap involves dissection of vessels through the gluteal muscle, potentially compromising gait and ambulation. We compared patient-reported gait and ...
Cutaneous collateral axonal sprouting re-innervates the skin component and restores sensation of denervated Swine osteomyocutaneous alloflaps.
(PLoS Organization, 2013-10-18)
Reconstructive transplantation such as extremity and face transplantation is a viable treatment option for select patients with devastating tissue loss. Sensorimotor recovery is a critical determinant of overall success ...
