The arterialized venous flap (AVF) has been gradually popularized in clinical settings; however, its survival is still inconsistent and the role of venous drainage remains elusive. In this study, we aimed to investigate the role of venous drainage on the flap survival of arterialized venous flaps. An arterialized venous flap was outlined symmetrically in(More)
Treatment of painful neuromas remains a challenge and the mechanism of neuroma-associated pain is not yet fully understood.

The rat sciatic nerve was used and the(More)
