OBJECTIVE The aim of this study is to present our clinical experience with rhomboid flaps. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-four patients who were operated on between January 2006 and October 2010 were included in the study. All defects were reconstructed using rhomboid flaps. RESULTS Twenty-four patients were operated on for various reasons, and 26(More)
Latissimus dorsi (LD) flap is one of the most common options utilized in reconstructive armamentarium. In this report, we present our experience on harvest of the full LD muscle flap through a short incision. Twelve free and two pedicled full LD muscle flaps were raised in 14 patients (9 males and 5 females). In this technique, an oblique incision was(More)
The management of soft-tissue defects in the ankle and foot area is a challenging task. Distally based sural flap is widely used, however it leaves donor area paresthesia. For this purpose, the sural nerve was dissected and preserved in the distally based sural flap in five cases of ankle and foot soft tissue reconstruction. This modification did not cause(More)

MATERIALS AND METHODS This study was performed in 41 burn patients with mild to severe thermal burn injuries and 38 healthy volunteers. The burn cases were selected from patients who were hospitalized in the burn unit for the(More)
The Internal Mammary Artery (IMA) and its perforators play an important role in coronary bypass grafting and reconstructive breast, head, and neck surgery. This study aimed to obtain anatomic data pertaining to these vessels using Multi Detector Computed Tomography Angiography (MDCTA) and to demonstrate that the MDCTA could be a considerable assessment tool(More)
Suday, Sptem er 5, 2016 pre-vascularized full thickness skin flap, which recapitulates the inherent hierarchical vasculature found within the human skin and is suitable to provide whole tissue perfusion. We provide the platform for an on-demand, geometrically tunable tissue engineered skin equivalent with an anastomosable vascular network which will(More)
OBJECTIVE To increase the viability of fat grafts using vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in a calcium alginate microsphere controlled release system. DESIGN Twenty-four rats were divided into 4 groups of 6 rats each. Group 1 was the preconditioning group in which VEGF was applied prior to the fat grafting. In group 2,VEGF was given at the time of(More)
OBJECTIVE The fractures of facial structures lead to great morbidity. Cross-sectional studies are needed to evaluate the current state of maxillofacial traumas. Thus, this study aims to evaluate these experiences and to compare these results with the current literature. MATERIALS AND METHODS The medical records of the maxillofacial fracture cases(More)
