A distally based flap pedicled with the nutrient vessel of the sural nerve has been widely applied in the clinic. An attempt was carried out to modify the distally based flap pedicled with the nutrient vessel of the lower rotation point sural nerve to reconstruct the soft-tissue defects in foreleg. For cases with complex bone defects, this flap was(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the origin of small saphenous vein of distally-based of sural nerve nutrient vessels flap and its clinical application. METHODS The origins of nutrient vessels of small saphenous vein and communicating branches of superficial-deep vein were observed on specimens of 30 adult cadaveric low limbs by perfusing red gelatin to dissect(More)
Improvements were made by us in several distally based pedicled flaps of the nutrient vessels of the saphenous nerve with lower rotation points. However, these flaps are still insufficient for trauma complicated by bone defects. Accordingly, we conducted a systematic study of the anatomic theory on distally based pedicled compound flaps of the nutrient(More)
The mid-to-lower segment of tibiofibular fractures (MLTFs) is commonly encountered in clinical practice, which is conventionally treated by the double-incision surgical approach. However, the double-incision approach frequently makes the closure of the wound extremely difficult and sometimes results in necrosis of skin around fractured sites. In the present(More)
OBJECTIVE T1- and T2-weighted magnetic resonance images (MRI) can reveal lumbar redundant nerve roots (RNRs), a result of chronic compression and nerve elongation associated with pathogenesis of cauda equina claudication (CEC) in degenerative lumbar canal stenosis (DLCS). The study investigated effects of lumbar lordosis angle and range of motion on(More)
