Flap choices for the coverage of the proximal phalangeal soft tissue defects of the finger and web space burn contractures are limited. A unipedicled distally based venous flap was raised from the third or fourth metacarpal area of the hand for proximal phalangeal soft tissue defects of the finger and web space burn contracture. For clinical use, we(More)
BACKGROUND Although various techniques have been described for correction of crooked and saddle nose deformities, these problems are challenging with high recurrence and revision rates. Conventional septal surgery may not be adequate for nose reconstruction in crooked and saddle nose deformities. MATERIALS AND METHODS Between December 2005 and October(More)
INTRODUCTION There are several techniques employed in the surgical treatment of total or partial penile reconstruction, hypospadias surgery, and urethral stricture. Urethral reconstruction is performed in different ways applying these techniques. OBJECTIVE We evaluated use of a fibrovascular sheath to create a neo-urethra formed around a silicon tube. (More)
Oculo-auriculo-vertebral spectrum and frontonasal dysplasia are two well-known examples of dysmorphology syndromes. Oculoauriculofrontonasal syndrome (OAFNS) is a clinical entity involving the characteristics of both OAVS and FND and is thought to be a result of the abnormal development of structures in the first and the second branchial arches, including(More)
Thermal crush burn injury due to roller type ironing press machine is relatively rare and can cause destructive effects with significant morbidity. These injuries can be avoided by taking some basic precautions. Early debridement after admission and definitive treatment after the extent of injury are delineated and these are the preferred approaches in the(More)
Skin grafts and local flaps are conventional methods for repairing simple syndactyly. Skin grafts usually leave unsightly appearance and contracture formation. In this study, unipedicled distally based venous flap were raised from third or fourth metacarpal area of the hand for syndactyly treatment. The distally based venous flap was to provide skin(More)
Parosteal lipoma of the head and neck is very rare, and there is no reported case of parosteal lipoma in the frontal region. We present the case of frontal parosteal lipoma in a 20-year-old man who was referred for a forehead mass causing a cosmetic problem.

INTRODUCTION Creating vascularized nerve conduits for treatment of nerve gaps have been researched, however, these methods need microsurgical anastomosis thereby complicating the nerve repair process. Thus, the concept of vascularized nerve conduits has not popularized up till now. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effects of vascularized and(More)
