This pseudo-randomized study was performed to compare the pulmonary function and biceps recovery after intercostal (19 cases) and phrenic (17 cases) nerve transfer to the musculocutaneous nerve for brachial plexus injury patients with nerve root avulsions. Pulmonary function was assessed pre-operatively and postoperatively by measuring the forced vital(More)
We reported a rare case of a primary intraosseous glomus tumor in a 53-year-old woman who had a small lytic lesion in the distal phalanx of her left index finger. The radiologic appearance showed a well circumscribed osteolytic lesion without sclerotic rim. Histologic examination revealed solid nests or sheets of polygonal cells surrounding branching(More)
We compared the quantitative electromyographic activity of the elbow flexors during four exercises (forced inspiration, forced expiration, trunk flexion and attempted elbow flexion), following intercostal nerve transfer to the musculocutaneous nerve in 32 patients who had sustained root avulsion brachial plexus injuries. Quantitative electromyographic(More)
To determine the relationship of neurovascular structures to the sites of portal placement and transverse carpal ligament division during two-portal endoscopic carpal tunnel release, a study of 20 fresh cadaver specimens was carried out. Open dissection of the carpal tunnel after endoscopic surgery showed complete ligamentous release in 18 hands (90%). In(More)
Accessory-suprascapular nerve transfer by the anterior supraclavicular approach technique was suggested to ensure transferrance of the spinal accessory nerve to healthy recipients. However, a double crush lesion of the suprascapular nerve might not be sufficiently demonstrated. In that case, accessory-suprascapular nerve transfer by the posterior approach(More)
SUMMARY 47 dissections of cadaver thigh were studied to investigate pedicle configurations in the lateral descending branch of the lateral circumflex femoral arterial system, which can be used in harvesting a flow-through anterolateral thigh flap. The descending branch arose from the lateral circumflex femoral artery in 38 of the dissections, and the mean(More)
We report on a Thai man who had triphalangeal thumb-polysyndactyly syndrome (TPTPS, MIM *190605) and his daughter who had tibial hemimelia-polysyndactyly-triphalangeal thumb syndrome (THPTTS, MIM *188770). The father had polysyndactyly of triphalangeal thumbs, syndactyly of fingers, duplicated distal phalanx of the left great toe, brachymesophalangy of(More)
Fifty thighs from fresh human cadavers were studied to evaluate the feasibility of a double functioning free muscle transfer of the gracilis and adductor longus with single common vascular pedicle anastomosis. Methylene blue intra-arterial injection and loupe-magnified dissection were used to demonstrate three groups of vascular patterns in these two(More)
We report digitotalar dysmorphism in a grandfather, father, and a daughter. All the affected members had clasped thumbs. The father had a short stature, large zygomatic arch and a flat mandibular condyle. The newly recognized findings found in the affected girl were large maxillary deciduous central incisors, a short proximal phalanx of the second finger,(More)
SUMMARY We report on 45 pedicle perforator flaps without harvesting major vessels in limb reconstruction. Of our patients, 25 had major vessel injury resulting from their initial injury. In the upper extremities, there were 13 posterior interosseous artery perforator flaps, four ulnar artery perforator flaps and three radial artery perforator flaps. In the(More)
