    • Increased flap weight and decreased perforator number predict fat necrosis in DIEP breast reconstruction 

      Mulvey, Carolyn L.; Cooney, Carisa M.; Daily, Francis F.; Colantuoni, Elizabeth; Ogbuago, Onyebuchi U.; Cooney, Damon S.; Rad, Ariel N.; Manahan, Michele A.; Rosson, Gedge D.; Sacks, Justin M. (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 

      Hur, Kevin; Ohkuma, Rika; Bellamy, Justin L.; Yamazaki, Michiyo; Manahan, Michele A.; Rad, Ariel N.; Cooney, Damon S.; Rosson, Gedge D. (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 ...
