BACKGROUND In late obstetric brachial plexus palsy (OBPP), restoration of elbow and hand functions is a difficult challenge. The use of free functioning muscle transplantation in late OBPP was very scarcely reported. In this study, we present our experience on the use of free functioning gracilis transfer for restoration of elbow and hand functions in late(More)
Cardiac contusion is a well-recognized complication of blunt chest trauma. Various conduction system disorders have been reported in association with this condition, the most common being right bundle branch block. Complete heart block (CHB) is seen rarely. Most cases of CHB are transient. We present the case of an 80-year-old woman who developed CHB and(More)
INTRODUCTION Although the perforating branches of the deep femoral artery have been introduced as recipient vessels for vascularized fibular grafts in the treatment of osteonecrosis of the femoral head, comprehensive knowledge of the related anatomy is deficient. The aims of this study were to provide detailed anatomical data for the perforating branches of(More)
A 52-year-old male with a right ventricular mass that filled the entire right ventricle and assumed its shape was evaluated by two-dimensional and real time three-dimensional (3D) echocardiography. Contrast enhanced 3D imaging and quantitative assessments of the size of the mass were performed. The clinical correlation, the imaging characteristics of the(More)
I April 2009, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the United States identified the first 2 cases of human infection with the 2009 pandemic influenza A (H1N1) virus. Subsequently, the 2009 H1N1 virus spread rapidly throughout the world. In June 2009, the first case of pandemic influenza A (H1N1) virus was reported in Saudi Arabia. There(More)
We report a 38-year-old male with end-stage ischemic cardiomyopathy requiring left ventricular assist device placement, followed by orthotopic heart transplantation, who presented 18 months post-orthotopic heart transplant with acute graft failure with estimated left ventricular ejection fraction of 5% to 10%, in association with a glucose level of 550(More)
Management of recurrent radial deviation after centralization for radial longitudinal deficiency patients usually involves some form of wrist fusion. We report on a child with recurrence after centralization, where correction and successful maintenance of a good functional and cosmetic position were obtained by vascularized second metatarsophalangeal joint(More)
LEARNING OBJECTIVES After studying this article, the participant should be able to: 1. Understand the history and physiology of perforator flaps. 2. Understand the concept of "free-style" perforator flaps and principles in design and harvest. 3. Understand the uses of perforator flaps in reconstruction and applications in new settings. 4. Understand new(More)
BACKGROUND The pedicled latissimus dorsi (LD) flap serves an important function in breast reconstruction, but its utility is limited by its inability to provide sufficient breast volume. OBJECTIVES The purpose of this preliminary report was to review the techniques and outcomes of utilizing fat-grafted, volume-enhanced LD flap transfer with fat grafting(More)
