Breast reconstruction by the free transverse gracilis (TUG) flap.
The transverse upper gracilis (TUG) flap is a free musculocutaneous (type II) flap consisting of a segment of the proximal gracilis muscle and a 25x10 cm skin paddle oriented transversely. TheExpand
Ablation and Thermal Depths in VSP Er : YAG Laser Skin Resurfacing
The list of indications for which Variable Square Pulse (VSP) Er:YAG laser systems can be used is continuously expanding. For example, ablative fractional resurfacing treatments performed with theExpand
Evaluation of surgical treatment in mandibular condyle fractures.
AIM In the past, fractures of the mandibular condylar process were, as a rule, treated conservatively. At the Department of Maxillofacial and Oral Surgery of the University Medical Centre Ljubljana,Expand
The use of 3D laser imaging and a new breast replica cast as a method to optimize autologous breast reconstruction after mastectomy.
Aesthetically pleasing and symmetrical breasts are the goal of reconstructive breast surgery. Sometimes, however, multiple procedures are needed to improve a reconstructed breast's symmetry andExpand
Management of aplasia cutis congenita in a non-scalp location.
