Abdominal weakness is a known potential complication of breast reconstruction with a pedicled or free TRAM flap. It has been presumed that the DIEP flap, which involves no muscle resection, does not compromise abdominal muscle strength but little objective research exists to substantiate this. The aims of this retrospective study were to compare abdominal(More)
The deep inferior epigastric perforator (DIEP) flap is the gold standard for breast reconstruction using abdominal tissue. Unlike the transverse rectus abdominis myocutaneous (TRAM) flap, no rectus abdominis muscle is removed with the flap, but intra-muscular scarring can still cause post-operative complications. Strong abdominal muscles have been advocated(More)
For more than three decades the catalytic synthesis of acrylates from the cheap and abundantly available C(1) building block carbon dioxide and alkenes has been an unsolved problem in catalysis research, both in academia and industry. Herein, we describe a homogeneous catalyst based on nickel that permits the catalytic synthesis of the industrially highly(More)
