Proanthocyanidins are potent natural antioxidants which belong to a class of polyphenols. Proanthocyanidin-rich extracts are prepared from grape seeds. The effect of grape seed proanthocyanidin extract (GSPE) on the viability of abdominal skin flaps exposed to warm ischaemia and subsequent reperfusion were studied in 40 male Wistar rats. In the control(More)
PURPOSE Bottoming-out deformity is accepted as the most important disadvantage of inferior pedicle breast reduction. For prevention of this deformity, different techniques are used in combination with inferior pedicle. In this study, we aimed to prevent bottoming-out deformity by producing an internal bra effect through combination of inferior pedicle(More)
BACKGROUND Rhinoplasty has become one of the most frequently requested and performed surgical procedures for both functional and aesthetic purposes. As an attention-attracting prominence, even the slightest disfigurement of the nose causes serious disturbance to the patient before or after the operation. Functional problems also cause discomfort. For these(More)
BACKGROUND Although several different methods were described in the literature, closure of large meningomyelocele defects presents a challenging problem. Wound dehiscence may lead to devastating complications. In this paper, the efficacy of the bilateral modified V-Y advancement flap procedure was investigated in terms of simplicity, donor-site morbidity,(More)
This paper presents the details of an experimental study of arterial anastomosis, combining suture with the cyanoacrylate tissue adhesive. At the distal end of the vessel, two parallel incisions were made, 180 degrees apart from each other, and two sutures were placed passing from the proximal end to exit from the most distal part of the longitudinal(More)
Reattachment of the amputated fingertips as composite grafts has been performed for distal levels in children, with high rates of good outcome, but the majority of the reports emphasized that this procedure had success rates only up to 50% in adults. Several techniques to enhance composite graft take in adults have been defined. In this study, a technique(More)
BACKGROUND In clinical practice, there are many ways to reconstruct nasal defects. Despite this fact, achieving a desirable image and better functional results is still a problem. Banner, bilobed, and dorsal nasal flaps have recently been used to reconstruct defects up to 2 cm. For defects larger than 2 cm, flaps raised from the frontal region and face are(More)
BACKGROUND Mallet finger deformity is a common disability that causes discomfort and inconvenience to the patient. Although numerous operative techniques have been described, surgical management remains controversial. METHODS Between 2002 and 2004, 19 patients with an unsuccessful splinting regimen history, chronic deformities of tendinous origin (>3(More)
For head and neck reconstruction after tumor ablation surgery, free flaps are mostly the chosen treatment modality for most of the centers. Coping with venous insufficiency and increasing venous outflow of the flap during this process increases the success rate. To increase venous outflow, triple-lumen central venous catheter is inserted to one of the donor(More)
