Further Clarification of the Nomenclature for Compound Flaps

  • Medicine
    Plastic and reconstructive surgery
  • 1 June 2006
TLDR
This revised nomenclature system for compound flaps is intended to be a means of standardizing communication and to facilitate research agendas on a common ground, fully realizing its primary role still only to serve as a convenient guideline.
Anatomic Basis of the Gastrocnemius Perforator-Based Flap

  • 1 November 2001
The gastrocnemius muscle is rarely considered today as a musculocutaneous flap. Yet, the posterior calf skin by itself can still be used to advantage as a source of local or perhaps free flaps.
The utility of both muscle and fascia flaps in severe upper extremity trauma.
TLDR
A schema to guide flap selection for upper extremity coverage is introduced that is predicated on using the best available option.
The “Tokyo” Consensus on Propeller Flaps
TLDR
The consensus on the definition and classification of propeller flaps reached by the authors that gathered at the First Tokyo Meeting on Perforator and Propeller Flaps in June of 2009 are reported.
Medial sural artery perforator free flap: legitimate use as a solution for the ipsilateral distal lower extremity defect.

  • 10 October 2013
TLDR
The study concluded the major disadvantage of the MSAP flap is the nonaesthetic scar left at the donor site which can be quite conspicuous, yet even this detriment can be acceptable for ipsilateral distal lower extremity defects where reconstruction of the defect itself may be cosmetically unappealing.
Prospective Comparison of Minimal Incision “Open” and Two‐Portal Endoscopic Carpal Tunnel Release
TLDR
The observed outcomes documented no clear superiority for endoscopic carpal tunnel release and should justify the continued use of a minimally invasive “open” technique by experienced hand surgeons without fear of personal obsolescence.
Chimeric Gastrocnemius Muscle and Sural Artery Perforator Local Flap
  • G. Hallock
  • Biology, Medicine
    Annals of plastic surgery
  • 1 September 2008
TLDR
In 2 patients with knee infections, this concept facilitated the use of local flaps only to simultaneously allow deep obliteration within the knee joint with the muscle portion while providing tension-free skin closure.

Utility of both muscle and fascia flaps in severe lower extremity trauma.
TLDR
The traditional role of the gastrocnemius muscles for flap coverage of knee and proximal leg defects and the soleus muscle for the middle third of the leg was reaffirmed and local fascia flaps proved to be a valuable alternative.
