We compared the efficacy of silicone gel (Scarfade), silicone gel sheet (Epi-Derm), and topical onion extract including heparin and allantoin (Contractubex) for the treatment of hypertrophic scars. Forty-five postburn scars were included in the study. Patients with scars less than 6 months from injury were assigned at random to three groups each containing(More)
Vertical techniques have become a growing area in reduction mammaplasty. Although it has many advantages such as a smaller scar and durable results, some problems still persist. The Hall-Findlay superomedial pedicle technique is one approach to obtain better results but is not without drawbacks. Some modifications are suggested to overcome its problems.(More)
Acticoat, chlorhexidine acetate 0.5%, and fusidic acid 2% were compared to assess the antibacterial effect of an application on experimental 15% BSA, full-thickness burn wounds in rats swabbed 24 h earlier with a 10(8) standard strain of methicillin-resistant Staphylococci. The swabbed organism was recovered from the eschar of all groups except the fusidic(More)
We researched the effect of nerve decompression procedures on diabetic neuropathy cases just in the following day after surgery as well as later, at 6 months. Twenty-four patients with diabetic neuropathy who underwent surgical decompression were entered into this study. The common peroneal, the posterior tibial, and the deep peroneal nerves were(More)
We explored a swelling on the anterior surface of the right distal forearm of a 21-year-old right-handed male soldier and effort-induced symptoms of median and ulnar nerve compression that showed a reversed, three-headed and hypertrophied palmaris longus muscle with extension of Guyon's canal.
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectivity of prefabricated nerve grafts in the repairing nerve defect and to compare them with the autogenous nerve graft and vein graft. Four groups were created, each containing 10 rats. First, nerve prefabrication was carried out in groups I and II during 8 weeks. For this purpose, jugular vein graft was(More)
The treatment of an inflammatory linear verrucous epidermal nevus (ILVEN), an uncommon type of epidermal nevus, is still controversial. The use of laser therapy is a recently reported method. Although various results have been reported with the use of the laser in the treatment epidermal nevis, the authors have not seen any report on the use of the carbon(More)
BACKGROUND In the present study, the authors combined use of the cross-finger flap and the side-finger transposition flap to cover the skin and soft-tissue defect created by contracture release of severely contracted fingers. METHODS Eight patients having Stern type III flexion contractures of the proximal interphalangeal joints were included. The cause(More)
Rats are the most frequently used animals in composite tissue allotransplantation (CTA) studies and most craniofacial composite tissue transplantation models are described in rats. During the last 10 years, a total of 8 different craniofacial composite tissue allotransplantation (CCTA) models have designed and developed in rats. These models include full(More)
INTRODUCTION Vascularized composite allotransplantation (VCA), a new reconstructive option for patients suffering from extensive facial defects leads to superior functional and aesthetic outcomes compared to the standard autologous reconstruction. Among VCA recipients, each case involves different facial structures and tissues depending on the patient's(More)
