Microvascular anastomoses are at risk of thrombosis, especially when repairing avulsed or crushed tissues, or when ischemia time is prolonged. When all surgical techniques to avoid thrombosis of the microanastomoses fail, thrombolytic agents may play a role in dissolving the thrombus and preventing rethrombosis. The authors present a case in which(More)
We present a case of severe intractable epistaxis after midfacial trauma in which the bleeding was identified as coming from the descending palatine artery, a branch of the maxillary artery. It could not be controlled by simple packing, and was stopped by inserting a balloon into the maxillary sinus, tamponading the injured vessel in the sphenopalatine(More)
BACKGROUND The present study investigated the effects of a 2-week modified exponential taper on physiological adaptation and time trial performance among junior cyclists. METHODS Participants (N.=27) with the mean age of 16.95±0.8 years, height of 165.6±6.1 cm and weight of 54.19±8.1 kg were matched into either modified exponential taper (N.=7), normal(More)
Noma neonatorum should be differentiated from noma, in that it is typically a disease of seriously ill premature infants whose birth weight was low, and is caused by Pseudomonas aerugenosa septicaemia. We know of only two case reports of noma neonatorum involving newborn infants born at full term, so we report here another case of noma neonatorum in a(More)
In our attempts to salvage massive lower-extremity injuries, even in the presence of severe peripheral vascular pathology, adequate soft-tissue coverage is no longer a limiting factor due to recent advances in microvascular composite tissue transfer. Restoration of tibial continuity without shortening has emerged as the last obstacle in the formidable task(More)
Vascular thrombosis remains a dreaded complication of any microvascular procedure, be it composite tissue transfer or replantation of amputated limbs or parts. Despite the tremendous advances in microvascular-related technologies and the accumulated surgical skills, failures caused by occlusion of anastomosed vessels remain a continuous source of(More)
Infection of prosthetic vascular grafts, although infrequent, is a dreadful complication in vascular surgery. It is a challenge for the surgeon and is life- and limb-threatening to the patient. Conventionally, infection involving a foreign body is eradicated by removing the foreign body. Despite its theoretical appeal, this solution is fraught with(More)
Advanced knowledge about cutaneous vascularity has enabled the development of axial flaps such as fasciocutaneous, septocutaneous, and musculocutaneous flaps. It has also laid the foundation for microsurgical free flaps. The newly emerging concept of angiosomes sheds yet more light on the complexity and multiplicity of peripheral blood supply. We describe(More)
Thorascopic harvesting of the internal mammary artery for supercharging the rectus abdominis pedicled flap for breast reconstruction is presented. The procedure was carried on a woman who had previously undergone a mastectomy and who was obese and a diabetic. The patient underwent a "high" flap delay 2 weeks earlier. At the time of operative transfer and(More)
