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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
