Noma: Experiences with a Microvascular Approach under West African Conditions
A single-stage procedure was developed for reconstruction of the inner and outer linings of the oral, nasal, and paranasal cavities, with restoration of jaw function in patients with noma, especially those with severe soft-tissue destruction and profound trismus.
Isometric tetanic force measurement method of the tibialis anterior in the rat
Optimization of the variables affecting isometric tetanic force resulted in reproducible and reliable side‐to‐side measurements of the TA muscle in the rat model.
The Muscular and the New Osteomuscular Composite Peroneus Brevis Flap: Experiences from 109 Cases
The peroneus brevis brevis is a valuable flap for defect closure around the ankle and lower leg and can be harvested together with a vascularized split fibula segment, representing a simple alternative to several free composite flaps.
Early free active versus dynamic extension splinting after extensor indicis proprius tendon transfer to restore thumb extension: a prospective randomized study.
Nonfunctional parathyroid carcinoma.
Parathyroid cancer should be considered in every patient evaluated for a neck mass regardless of the blood calcium and blood parathormone level, because there is a paucity of data in the literature regarding nonfunctioning parathyroid carcinoma.
Macroscopic and Microangiographic Anatomy of the Teres Major Muscle: A New Free Functional Muscle Flap?
This anatomical study indicates that the teres major can be seen as a separate entity in the subscapular system and can be transferred as a free flap either alone or in combination.

Microsurgical Reconstruction of Noma-Related Facial Defects With Folded Free Flaps: An Overview of 31 Cases
Free flaps can be a suitable and safe closure for complex noma defects even in underprivileged circumstances, if patient profile and own microsurgical routine allows it.
