Fasciocutaneous free flaps are commonly used in reconstruction of the lower extremity. The purpose of this study was to compare preferences in donor-site scar location among 3 flaps capable of covering a wound that is 4 to 6 cm wide with primary closure of the donor-site. The locations chosen were the lateral arm, the anterolateral thigh, and the proximal(More)
LEARNING OBJECTIVES After studying this article, the participant should be able to: 1. Describe the anatomy of the zygoma and the common signs and symptoms of fracture. 2. Describe the different operative approaches for zygomatic fractures and understand the essentials of proper reduction and fixation. 3. Avoid and manage common complications associated(More)
BACKGROUND Detecting failing tissue flaps before they are clinically apparent has the potential to improve postoperative flap management and salvage rates. This study demonstrates a model to quantitatively compare clinical appearance, as recorded via digital camera, with spatial frequency domain imaging (SFDI), a noninvasive imaging technique using(More)
BACKGROUND Mandibular distraction osteogenesis is an important technique to correct the pediatric hypoplastic mandible. Regression of the mandible after distraction continues to be a challenge, with some studies reporting up to 22% to 56% decrease toward predistraction length in the first year. We hypothesize that a resorbable plate placed after removal of(More)
