BACKGROUND Reconstruction of severe hand injuries remains a challenge. We herein report the use of dorsalis pedis composite free flaps (DPCFFs) for the reconstruction of penetrating injuries of the hand. METHODS From July 2001 to February 2009, 23 patients (15 males and 8 females), mean age of 26 years (range, 17-48 years), with penetrating wounds of the(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the surgical method and clinical efficacy of repairing whole-hand destructive injury or hand degloving injury with the transplant of pedis compound free flap. METHODS From February 2003 to June 2008, 21 patients with whole-hand destructive injury or hand degloving injury were treated, including 15 males and 6 females aged 18-45(More)
UNLABELLED The purpose of this report was to retrospectively review the results of reconstruction of the thumb by use of combined two foot flaps with an iliac bone graft. From 2009 to 2014, nine patients with traumatic amputation of the thumb had their thumbs reconstructed. The two flaps were based on one pedicle. All flaps survived completely. Patients(More)
In this case report, we describe reconstructive surgery in one patient using a free lateral tarsal artery perforator flap with a functioning extensor digitorum brevis muscle. A 47-year-old woman sustained a crush–avulsion injury to her dominant right hand while working in a factory. A large thenar skin and muscle defect (5.5 cm × 4.0 cm) occurred as a(More)
OBJECTIVE To summarize the injury characteristics of the whole hand degloving injury and to explore its classification and treatment. METHODS Between December 1999 and May 2010, 41 cases of the whole hand degloving injury were admitted for treatment. There were 28 males and 13 females with an average age of 35 years (range, 18-58 years). The causes of(More)
Thumb tip reconstruction has been a very challenging issue for hand surgeons. Varieties of reconstructive options have been described or modified to obtain satisfactory sensory recovery. However, none has yielded entirely satisfactory results. This study reports a retrospective review of clinical data records of patients treated with a neurovascular island(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to explore effective strategies of replantation or revascularization for the treatment of hand degloving injuries. METHODS Ten patients who had received replantation or revascularization surgery for hand degloving injury between 2002 and 2014 were included for this study. The average age at the time of surgery was(More)
These authors aimed to evaluate the method and therapeutic effects of surgical hand-wound repair using free vascularised flaps based on the descending ramus of the above-wrist cutaneous branch of the ulnar artery. We retrospectively reviewed records of 75 patients with 79 finger defects who had received hand surgery between January 2001 and December 2007.(More)
Previous studies have suggested that estradiol can reduce the ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury in skin flaps. However, the mechanism, particularly the signal pathways involved in this protective effect are not well established. In the current study, an I/R injury model was established in rats to explore the connection between estradiol protection during(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the surgical procedures and clinical outcomes of the neurovascular free flap based on dorsal branch of digital artery of ring finger graft for repair of finger pulp defect. METHODS From February 2006 to May 2009, 11 cases (11 fingers) of finger pulp defect with tendon and bone exposure were treated, including 8 males and 3 females(More)
