INTRODUCTION The rate of complications for mandibular reconstruction after segmental mandibulectomy is higher with reconstruction plates than with vascularised bone grafts. We have experience of over 100 patients using reconstructive plates for reconstruction immediately after segmental mandibulectomy and have considered factors contributing to plate(More)
New flow-through perforator flaps with a large, short vascular pedicle are proposed because of their clinical significance and a high success rate for reconstruction of the lower legs. Of 13 consecutive cases, the authors describe two cases of successful transfer of a new short-pedicle anterolateral or anteromedial thigh flow-through flap for coverage of(More)
Between January 2001 and December 2007, we performed vaginoplasty as sex reassignment surgery in a total of 14 male-to-female transsexual (MTFTS) patients [1]. Several complications occurred such as partial flap necrosis, rectovaginal fistula formation and hypersensitivity of the neoclitoris. Just after the operation, some patients feel that their penises(More)
To date, many techniques have been reported for vaginoplasty in male-to-female trans-sexual (MTFTS) patients, such as the use of a rectum transfer, a penile-scrotal flap and a reversed penile flap. However, none of these procedures is without its disadvantages. We developed a newly kind of flap for vaginoplasty, the M-shaped perineo-scrotal flap (M-shaped(More)
The authors describe, in the first report of this type of replantation surgery, a high success rate using delayed venous anastomosis in 16 consecutive distal phalangeal replantations under digital block. Among these replantations, seven fingers (43.8 percent) showed postoperative venous congestion and five fingers were reoperated on with delayed venous(More)
AIM Transfer of a free jejunal graft is the first choice for reconstruction after total laryngopharyngo-oesophagectomy (TPLE). After total necrosis of a jejunal graft, possible salvage procedures include temporary external fistula formation and transfer of a second free jejunal graft. The present study determines the most appropriate salvage method. (More)
BACKGROUND Lymphaticovenular anastomosis plays an important role in the surgical treatment of lymphedema. The outcomes of lymphaticovenular anastomosis are evaluated based on changes in edema; however, isolated assessment of the anastomosis itself is difficult. The authors used an animal experimental model to conduct a detailed examination of histologic(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the usefulness of a new flap model, the superficial inferior epigastric artery (SIEA) flap for supermicrosurgical training. Experimental groups were randomly divided into three groups of 10 rats each. In each group SIEA flaps were elevated and then returned to their original locations with or without vascular(More)
Axillary necrotizing fasciitis (NF) is quite rare and requires special management with respect to debridement and delayed surgical reconstruction. A 76-year-old man presented to our emergency department with a 2-day history of high fever, severe left axillary pain and redness. A few hours later, he developed discoloration and hemorrhagic bulla in the(More)
BACKGROUND Secondary reconstructive operations are needed when patients with head and neck cancers have complications such as tumor recurrence after initial treatment. These reconstructive procedures are also performed to improve the function and appearance of the head and neck region for many cancer survivors. We reviewed the patients who underwent(More)
