Experience shows that young children are favourable candidates for microsurgical reconstruction, having few of the established risk factors for flap failure. In children's reconstructive surgery free tissue transfer (FTT) permits reconstruction whilst retaining growth potential, and reduces the overall number and duration of care episodes, and their related(More)
Technetium-99m glucoheptonate (Tc-99m GH) is concentrated in pulmonary and cerebral tumors. The purpose of this study was to assess the uptake of this radionuclide by hepatocellular carcinoma. Its concentration by the primary tumor was compared with that in the non-neoplastic hepatic tissue in 31 patients who showed obvious defects on a colloid scan, and(More)
