Prevention of thrombosis in the inflow and outflow vessels of a free flap is a problem of current interest. The method of creating a peripheral arteriovenous anastomosis within a free flap was validated in an experimental study and substantiated in a clinical case. No thrombotic complications were observed in 16 transfers of saphenous fasciocutaneous flaps(More)
Reconstructive options for early microsurgical tissue and island flap transfer are discussed in 23 patients with extensive avulsion and degloving injuries of the hands and fingers. The patients were divided into three groups (1) degloving thumb injuries; (2) crush avulsions with or without degloving of the palm and fingers; (3) complete degloving injuries(More)
The authors analyze the results of microsurgical autotransplantation of 13 composite forearm tissue flaps using radial artery. They show that these can be successfully used in the surgery of the hand in a single-time reconstructions of the fingers, in the removal of neurotrophic ulcers in regions deficient in blood supply, especially in the leg, and also in(More)
Vascularized bone flaps for thoracolumbar and lumbosacral spine fusion were developed in dissections on 52 cadavers, using iliac wing bone based on (1) the quadratus lumborum muscle and (2) the deep circumflex iliac artery. Fifteen clinical fusions were performed using these procedures. It was demonstrated roentgenologically that these vascularized bone(More)
The regeneration of anastomosed aortas after radiotherapy and chemotherapy was studied by light, scanning, and transmission electron microscopy in a rat model. At the ultrastructural level, it was observed that sublethal doses of these methods of cancer treatment did not severely block endothelial proliferation in the region of the microanastomosis. Based(More)
The method of anterior osseoplasic stabilization of inferiolumbar and lumbosacral parts of spine by means of non-free vascularized transplant from the anterior part of the iliac crest has been developed. In the anatomical experiment at 100 objects there have been studied alternative surgical anatomy of vascular transplant pedicle from deep vessels,(More)
Basing on the results of treatment of 5 patients, the authors claim that revascularized transplants from the iliac crest may be employed for osteogenic osteoplasty of mandibular defects combined with coarse cicatricial changes in soft tissues and bone fragment atrophy. The advantages of bone, muscle, and skin transplants are discussed, permitting monitoring(More)
