BACKGROUND Grade IIIb open tibial fractures require local or free flaps for cover of the fracture site. Perforator flap surgery is an innovative method for wound cover in this setting. The anatomy of perforating vessels of the peroneal artery is well described. METHODS All patients who underwent peroneal artery perforator-based flap cover for acute Grade(More)
BACKGROUND The defects over the leg, foot and ankle are best covered with a thin pliable flap. The use of muscle flap for the reconstruction of these defects leaves a grafted, aesthetically inferior result. The medial sural artery perforator (MSAP) free flap gives a thin pliable tissue for the reconstruction with better aesthesis. METHODS The study design(More)
Our patient is a 26‐year‐old man presented with deep abrasion over the palm in thenar eminence and the dorsum of index, middle, ring and little fingers over the distal and proximal phalanges. The injury over the ring, little and middle fingers had exposed distal inter‐phalangeal joint [Figure 1a]. The injury over the index finger was not exposing the joint,(More)
The reconstruction of calvarial defect is a challenging treat for any craniofacial surgeon. The split calvarial bone graft reconstruction is a well-described method of reconstruction and gives very good results. Here, we present a 14-year-old girl who presented with a frontal cranial bone defect with a size of 5 × 3 cm for which the reconstruction was done(More)
BACKGROUND Fingertip injury requiring flap cover is very common in the modern era. The ideal cover should fulfill both functional and aesthetic improvement. MATERIALS AND METHODS From June 2015 to April 2016, we performed seven free toe pulp flaps for finger defect reconstruction. All patients were males. Five flaps were done in emergency post-traumatic(More)
