Positive effect of neurolysis on diabetic patients with compressed nerves of the lower extremities: a systematic review and meta-analysis
(American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 2013-07-02)
BACKGROUND: Despite proven benefits of upper extremity nerve decompression in diabetics, neurolysis for diabetic patients with lower extremity (LE) nerve compression remains controversial. METHODS: A search of ...
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 ...
