The main aim of the treatment of fingertip amputations with no indication of replantation was to establish the functional and esthetic construction. The critical point in the utilization of the bone and nail tissue as a graft for reconstruction was to choose a flap that is sufficiently vascular to nourish these grafts. We have performed homodigital artery(More)
Gluteal artery perforator flaps have gained popularity due to reliability, preservation of the muscle, versatility in flap design without restricting other flap options, and low donor-site morbidity in ambulatory patients and possibility of enabling future reconstruction in paraplegic patients. But the inconstant anatomy of the vascular plexus around the(More)
The split-thickness skin graft (STSG) donor sites have been treated with various and plenty of dressing techniques and materials. An ideal STSG donor site dressing should have antibacterial, hemostatic, and promoting epidermal healing properties. We have performed a prospective study to evaluate the effect of the oxidized regenerated cellulose on STSG donor(More)
The principle of controlled utilization of increased vascularity in the regions of artificially established ischemia constituted the basis of prefabrication of the vascular induction through staged transfers. We have used this principle, and a part of a metacarpal bone was prefabricated with an artery. The artery was inserted into the bone, and a defect was(More)
The purpose of this study is to compare and measure the tendon graft donor sites and to predict the sizes of these tendons preoperatively. Seventeen cadavers were included in the study. The morphologic evaluation of the palmaris longus (n = 29), plantaris (n = 32), and tensor fascia lata (n = 34) tendons were done. The length of the forearm, leg, and thigh(More)
OBJECTIVE Chondrocutaneous composite grafts figure among the reconstruction alternatives for alar rim defects resulting from tumor resection and trauma. The major problem with composite grafts is the limited graft survival area. In the present study, the authors aimed to increase the survival area of composite grafts by utilizing the ability of stem cells(More)
BACKGROUND Epidermodysplasia verruciformis (EV) is a rare autosomal recessive genetic disorder of the immune system manifested by increased susceptibility to cutaneous human papillomavirus (HPV) infection beginning from the early years of life, and compromising lesions resembling flat warts, especially on the distal extremities and the face; but malignant(More)
BACKGROUND Tissue ischemia and necrosis following surgery after radiotherapy on the skin and subcutaneous tissue are well known to all reconstructive surgeons. Nevertheless, there has been no report so far on local effects of adipose-derived stem cells (ADSCs) on random flap survival elevated in an irradiated rat dorsum. In this experimental study, we aimed(More)
Utilization of the metatarsal bones and interosseous muscles in foot reconstruction should be based on the vascular anatomy of the metatarsal bones and interosseous muscles. We studied the vascular anatomy of the metatarsal bones and the interosseous muscles to design a split metacarpal musculoosseous flap and dorsal interosseous muscle flap. Twenty-two(More)
