Extensive and complex defects of the head and neck involving multiple anatomical and functional subunits are a reconstructive challenge. The purpose of this study is to elucidate the reconstructive indications of the use of simultaneous double free flaps in head and neck oncological surgery. This is a retrospective review of 21 consecutive cases of head and(More)
BACKGROUND Reconstruction after partial cricotracheal resection is technically demanding and is seldom reported in literature. The purpose of this study was to report a technique of reconstruction of such a defect with a radial forearm flap supported by a titanium mesh.

INTRODUCTION Symptomatic primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) is still seen frequently in referral centers all over India. These patients require parathyroidectomy and this study aimed to assess the roll of intraoperative parathyroid hormone (PTH) assay when concordant results of two localization studies were available. STUDY DESIGN We analyzed the case(More)
INTRODUCTION External volume expansion (EVE) is one method, which has been utilised for increasing the survival of adipose tissue grafts. EVE releases positive pressure from the graft and also induces intense levels of edema that decreases diffusion of metabolites essential for graft survival initially. The ideal timing of external volume expansion in(More)
Anterolateral thigh (ALT) free flap is a common flap with multitude of indications. The purpose of this article is to review the reconstructive indications of the flap in head and neck defects. This is a retrospective study of 194 consecutive ALT flaps. Data including patient characteristics (age, sex, comorbidities), disease characteristics (histology, T(More)
BACKGROUND Aplasia cutis is a rare developmental anomaly usually involving the calvarium, associated with a variable extent of defective formation of the scalp. Adams-Oliver syndrome is a condition mainly characterized by the congenital absence of skin, known as "aplasia cutis" which is usually limited to the vertex scalp and transverse limb defects.

Renewable Energy is a pressing need in the 21<sup>st</sup> century as non-renewable sources are no longer fit for our energy needs. This is especially important in a country like India, where supply to demand ratio is very low. In this paper, we intend to identify the geographical areas for solar and wind energy generations at low cost. It is achieved by(More)
