Tracheal stenosis in burns is rare and usually results from prolonged intubation or tracheostomy. Inhalation injury itself has the potential risk of tracheal stenosis. We reviewed the records of 1878 burn patients during 1987 to 1995 and found seven with tracheal stenosis (0.37%) after an average of 4.4 years follow up. There were 4 males and 3 females with(More)
INTRODUCTION Since Jean-Nicolas Marjolin reported carcinoma arising in post-traumatic scars in 1828, the term 'Marjolin ulcer' has been applied to malignant changes in burn scars. Although many papers have been published already in this field, there are few reports from Oriental people. METHODS From 1989 to 2008, there were 11 cases noted as burn scar(More)
From March 1995 to May 1997, 66 free radial forearm flaps were used for orofacial reconstructions. All flaps were elevated following the suprafascial technique. Donor-site closure was performed with split-thickness skin grafts in 54 cases, and with full-thickness skin grafts in 12 patients. Investigations after six months included grip strength,(More)
Electrical burns cause damage to the cardiovascular system through different mechanisms. Immediate cardiac arrhythmia is one of the common consequences. A large vessel blow out due to an electrical burn is rarely documented. It is often undetected due to its "silent" symptoms. This article reports a delayed obturator artery rupture in a 32-year-old male(More)
The ideal oromandibular reconstruction calls for restoration of intraoral sensation as well as tissue replacement because the loss of sensation in the oral cavity impairs oral function. The versatility and flexibility of the fibula osteoseptocutaneous flap in complex three dimensional spatial positioning lends itself to be desirable in composite(More)
In this study, motor re-innervation of the median nerve by transfer of one-third, one-half, and two-thirds of either the agonistic ulnar nerve or the antagonistic radial nerve was investigated in both extremities of 20 rabbits. Recipient median nerve: Muscle contraction force of the flexor digitorum sublimus muscle after a one-third and a one-half of the(More)
