BACKGROUND It is reported that the salvage rate of free flaps is inversely related to the time interval between the onset of pedicle impairments and their clinical recognition. Monitoring of free flaps is therefore of major importance and clinical monitoring remains the most used technique because of lack of low-cost and non-invasive techniques. The authors(More)
Dorsal perilunate wrist dislocations are rare. Associated carpal bones or radial styloid process fractures can occur and be included in the current classifications. The authors report an unusual association of dorsal perilunate wrist dislocation with a multifragmentary distal radius fracture. Such traumatic entity has never been previously described. Poor(More)
Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is pathology of glucose intolerance during pregnancy. It is influenced by maternal hyperglycemia and insulinemia through placental circulation.

BACKGROUND Sentinel lymph node (SLN) biopsy for patients with cutaneous melanoma has become a routine procedure. Its purpose is to confirm the potential presence of micrometastases in the first lymph node basin. Therefore, staging of the melanoma can be determined.

Pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) is an aseptic ulcerative dermatosis, belonging to the group of neutrophilic dermatoses, and could reveal a systemic blood disorders or inflammatory disease. This dermatosis could mimic rapidly extensive necrotizing dermo-hypodermitis in some clinical aspects. PG can be caused by tissue trauma as in surgical procedure. In this(More)
INTRODUCTION Maxillofacial defects often affect various type of tissues and require reconstruction using composite flaps. The radial forearm osteofasciocutaneous free flap is one of the least used. We present the preliminary results of maxillofacial reconstruction using this free flap. MATERIALS AND METHODS We reviewed the records of patients having(More)
