Thirty-six patients were treated by Ilizarov transport in conjunction with muscle and myocutaneous flaps coverage. Thirty-one free flaps and 5 rotation flaps were performed. In 13 patients the procedures were carried out in 1-stage or simultaneous manner. In 23 patients, soft tissue coverage proceeded as the initial step followed by Ilizarov reconstruction(More)
The last decade has witnessed the refinement of microvascular tissue transplantation and its application in treating difficult open wounds. Nonetheless, severe type III tibial injuries continue to challenge reconstructive surgeons. The clinical presentation and surgical treatment of a type IIIB tibial fracture, complicated by long-standing chronic(More)
Limb salvage in fungal osteomyelitis of the post-traumatic lower extremity represents a difficult clinical problem requiring aggressive management. We report lower extremity salvage by radical bony debridement, free tissue transfer, distraction osteogenesis with bone-docking, and a novel antifungal regimen in a clinical setting of infection with(More)

This paper presents a new accurate phase-domain synchronous machine model for transient studies. Representing a generator directly in the physical phase-domain instead of the mathematical dqo-domain facilitates the interface of the machine model with rest of the power system, and allows the more accurate representation of internal machine phenomena, such as(More)
We have previously published data on our use of opioids in the last week of life. A change in our pattern of opioid use, i.e. switching opioids more frequently and using high-dose methadone suppositories, appears to have resulted in a decrease in the number of patients requiring high-dose opioids. A retrospective chart review of 100 consecutive patients(More)
Standardized plaster replicas of bony specimens were made to determine the mechanical and architectural requirements for arthrodesis subsequent to failed arthroplasty. Surprisingly small differences were noted in the total volume of bone removed from control compared with arthroplasty patients. There were correspondingly small differences in the bone and/or(More)
The teardrop distance is defined as the distance from the lateral margin of the pelvic teardrop to the most medial aspect of the femoral head as seen on anteroposterior pelvic radiographs. The structure responsible for the teardrop is the anteroinferior portion of the acetabular fossa with contributions from the ischium and from the superior pubic ramus.(More)
