Comparison of the capsular response to the Biocell RTV and Mentor 1600 Siltex breast implant surface texturing: a scanning electron microscopic study.
The results showed that only the Biocell's capsules present a mirror image with correspondence of the depressions on the prosthesis and contacts on the capsule, and this phenomenon seems linked to the existence of a critical size of the pores constituting the implant surface. Expand
Biceps-to-Triceps Transfer in Tetraplegia
Eight tetraplegic patients (13 elbows) were treated by biceps-to-triceps transfer with a medial routing of the biceps to avoid the risk of radial nerve injury and there was a 47% reduction in elbow flexion power. Expand
Dermatofibrosarcoma Protuberans of the Chest and the Shoulder: Wide and Deep Excisions with Immediate Reconstruction
Latissimus dorsi flap reconstruction was used for the major tissue deficit for 15 patients with dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans of the chest and the shoulder and results in an improved aesthetic appearance and a stable cover for the periosteumless clavicle. Expand
Surgical Treatment of Dermatofibrosarcoma Protuberans
It is suggested that radical primary resection of dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans in conjunction with immediate reconstruction of the primary defect provides the best outcome for the patient. Expand
Kinematics of prehension and pointing movements in C6 quadriplegic patients
The kinematics of the hand during reaching and pointing in quadriplegic patients are surprisingly similar to those of control subjects. Expand
[Excision skin margin and recurrence rate of skin cancer: a prospective study of 844 cases].
To avoid repetitive operations and the risk of recurrence in anatomically sensitive areas, these tumors should be treated with standard wide margins chosen between 4 and 10 mm, function of the histological type. Expand
Endoscopic harvest of the medial gastrocnemius muscle flap: a cadaveric study.
It is found that the medial gastrocnemius muscle was easily harvested through a minor donor-site incision, because of its topography and constant dominant proximal vascular pedicle. Expand
Reconstruction of large thoracoabdominal defects using two-stage free tissue transfers and prosthetic materials.
Results of this series of patients support the belief that a two-stage microsurgical strategy can be useful in selected patients where large free flaps (with grafted pedicle) in combination with prosthetic materials have to be performed for reconstruction of full thickness defects of the trunk or the abdomen.

Use of the inferiorly based rectus abdominis flap for inguinal and perineal coverage--low venous pressure zone concept.
The authors report 8 cases of coverage of the inguinal and perineal areas with the inferiorly based rectus abdominis myocutaneous flap. This flap seems to be the technique of choice for coverage ofExpand
Nipple reconstruction after implant-based breast reconstruction in radiated patients: A new safe dermal flap.
The authors' strictly dermal local flap technique for nipple reconstruction is a safe procedure and represents a good alternative to composite contralateral nipple graft in irradiated patients with an implant-based reconstructed breast. Expand
