INTRODUCTION Avulsion and crush injuries constitute a particularly difficult problem due to extensive damage of vessels and nerves. In cases where a crush is the dominating injury factor causing complex fractures of forearm and carpal bones, shortening of the extremity is necessary for primary vessel and nerve reconstruction. Surgical experience in vessels(More)
Donor sites of 58 radial forearm flaps in 56 patients were analysed and evaluated on the basis of documentation and follow-up examination. In 2 patients 2 radial flaps were harvested. There were 25 females and 31 males aged 9-85 (mean age: 35 years). 35 free flaps (31 on to feet, 2 on to tibial stumps and 2 on to contralateral forearm) and 4 pedicled flaps(More)

Theoretical foundations for cross-leg pedicled fibular graft, a new method for reconstruction within lower extremity with vascularized bone graft is presented. The flap can be raised in two fashions depending on blood flow direction in the pedicle. In case of regular flow up to 18 cm of fibula is available; in reversed pedicular flow over 20 cm of fibula(More)
Basing on the earlier experience with neurovascular flap from the dorsal part of the index when reconstructing soft tissues of thumb and thenar, first of the authors elaborated a method of harvesting this flap together with a dorsal aponeurosis and bone fragment of the proximal phalanx. Blood flow comes from the periosteum of the proximal phalanx. Many(More)

Results of grip reconstruction in two patients after severe crush-avulsion injuries of the hand were presented. Total destruction affected the first or the first and the second ray of the hand which was accompanied by soft tissue loss, finger amputations and complex bone fractures with vessels and nerves damage. Soft tissue reconstructions were performed(More)

In the years 1985-2000 two females and eleven males aged 3-48 (mean age 27) were treated using neurovascular first dorsal metacarpal flap because of compound thumb multi-tissue defects. In two cases the flap included a fragment of vascularized bone from the index proximal phalanx. Simultaneously a graft of non-vascularized bone in three cases, nerve grafts(More)
We have achieved favorable results in reconstruction of the palmar surface of the thumb using the neurovascular flap from the index. The technique was applied in several patients with defects of the palmar surface and the tip of the thumb. Satisfactory functional and aesthetic results were obtained. It seems to be a very useful method to restore the sensory(More)

Treatment of 49 year old male with frostbite of feet is presented. The treatment included reconstruction of plantar surfaces in the both feet. Necrotic tissues were excised seven weeks after the injury and the wounds were split skin grafted. Two staged reconstruction with free neurovascular radial forearm flaps was carried out 15 and 20 weeks after the(More)

The paper presents the authors' experiences with very distal replantations of fingers. The results of surgical treatment in eleven cases of finger or thumb amputations at distal interphalangeal joint level or more distal are reviewed. There were 3 female and 8 male patients aged 13-45 years (mean age 25 years), with 7 amputations of the thumb and 4(More)
Forty-four patients underwent thumb replantation (after complete amputation) at Department of Plastic Surgery, Medical Center for Postgraduate Education at Warsaw between 1983 and 1996. There were 41 males and 3 females aged 13-58 years (mean 29 years). In 16 patients other fingers were also amputated. Circular saw wounds prevailed (27 patients--61%).(More)
