There are various degrees of expression of the fully developed tubular/tuberous deformity. To develop an adequate treatment plan for this condition, the individual deformities constituting the fully expressed syndrome must be diagnosed. The treatment plan must include maneuvers to correct each deficiency within the syndrome itself. We present the spectrum… (More)
The transverse abdominal island flap is not just another myocutaneous flap. Although it derives its blood supply from myocutaneous perforators, the portion of the skin and fat that overlies muscle comprises only about 20% of its surface. The surface area of the flap by far exceeds the surface area of the entire muscle that carries it. Its hemodynamics are… (More)
We report the case of an 18-year-old female undergoing routine reduction mammaplasty in whom bilateral diffuse intraductal cribriform breast carcinoma was reported upon review of the surgical specimen. This highlights the importance not only of sending specimens for pathologic examination, but also of marking the specimens accurately by location, such as… (More)
Five cases of severe ulceration of the dorsum of the hand and forearm, caused by the large extravasation of a cytotoxic agent, administered for haematological disorders, are presented.
A rare complication of temporomandibular arthroplasty, false aneurysm of the superfacial temporal artery, is presented.
Some variant of mastectomy remains the mainstay of the treatment of the primary tumor for the vast majority of the 110,000 new cases of cancer of the breast which will be treated this year in the United States. Reconstruction of the breast after ablation for cancer has become an integral part of the therapeutic regimen of this disease. With the increase in… (More)
We report a major modification of technique for the transverse abdominal island flap, namely, taking the anterior rectus fascia with the muscle. We believe that this protects the fine vascular network supplying the flap. This has resulted in a more reliable flap, confirmed by increased fluorescein uptake, and significant reduction in operating time.
