OBJECTIVE After surgical correction of thoracic wall deformities, promoting neochondrogenesis in the perichondrial bed is very important for obtaining a flexible chest wall. In this experimental study, we aimed to investigate the effects of human amniotic fluid on cartilage regeneration in the costal perichondrial bed in a rabbit model. METHODS Fifty-four(More)

Optimal management of cases is crucially important in establishing rapid recovery and avoiding additional complications. The use of an algorithmic guide is essential because of an ongoing dilemma that involves a large variety of(More)
