The numbers of free flap donor site as well as their indications are constantly increasing. Despite increasing popularity of microvascular reconstructive procedures, literature lacks clear and objective outcome criteria. This paper reports on a simple outcome classification that has become a routine part of the unit's large workload of microvascular outcome… (More)
INTRODUCTION Primary microvascular reconstruction of multiple defects is challenging particularly if it has to be simultaneous. In trauma cases, harvesting two independent free flaps from different sites is very time-consuming and adds to morbidity. To eliminate these disadvantages, we sought to find out a reliable alternative method of harvesting two… (More)
Large bone flaps for free transfer can be successfully and safely harvested based on the deep branch of the superior gluteal artery. The anatomy is consistent, the vessels are large, and the complications of this technique are minimal.
Three cases of high-voltage electrical burns of the wrist and forearm were reconstructed, using vascularized ipsilateral ulnar nerve transfers to median-nerve defects. Two of these cases utilized composite ulnar neuromyotendinous flap transfers, with the muscle (flexor carpi ulnaris) bridging the gap between the flexor muscle bellies and tendons. Sensory… (More)
