An anatomical study of the vascularization of the hippocampus was performed on 30 hemispheres. There were a total of 140 arteries supplying the hippocampi, for an average of 4.7 arteries per hemisphere (range three to seven arteries). Based on the origin and caliber of the arteries supplying the hippocampus, the hemispheres were divided into five groups: A)(More)
Thoracic radiation in the early years of life is a known risk factor for breast cancer later in life. A 21-year-old woman who had received thoracic radiation therapy for Ewing’s sarcoma of the vertebra 9 years earlier was referred to our hospital for investigation of a palpable mass in her left breast. Ultrasonography and excisional biopsy showed ductal(More)
Permanent correction of septal deformities is one of the most difficult and controversial subjects in aesthetic nasal surgery. The main reasons for failure in most of the corrective procedures are either not to weaken the septal cartilage enough to straighten it, or to treat the septum too radically causing iatrogenic deformities or predisposing it to new(More)
BACKGROUND Two patients were successfully operated on for total scalp avulsions. METHODS Ages were between 11 and 35 years, and both patients were female. Bilateral temporal artery and veins were used as the recipient pedicles. Interpositional vein graft harvested from the left forearm was used in 1 patient. No nerve repair was performed. RESULTS The(More)
Surgical procedures for correction of craniofacial deformities resulted in unavoidable and extensive blood loss in small children and infants. Almost all of the patients undergoing these procedures will undergo a blood transfusion either during or immediately after the operation. A retrospective review of 30 patients who underwent craniofacial surgery was(More)
A huge uncal branch of the anterior choroidal artery was found in one of 22 cerebral hemispheres. The uncal artery measured 0.7 mm in diameter. It gave off small branches to the uncus, as well as a large parahippocampal artery, the accessory anterior temporal artery, and the anterior hippocampal artery. This uncal artery supplied, in addition to the uncus,(More)
Extravasation of vesicant antineoplastic agents such as doxorubicin into the skin or subcutaneous tissues may result in loss of the full thickness of the skin or underlying structures. Several treatment methods have been advocated but none has demonstrated any superiority to the others. The authors designed a controlled animal study in 88 rats to test three(More)
BACKGROUND Although thoracodorsal artery perforator flaps have not gained popularity in the reconstructive era, the results of recent studies regarding the vascularity of thoracodorsal artery perforator flaps are promising. In the present study, the authors aimed to determine the clinical outcomes of free multiple-perforator versus single-perforator(More)
