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)
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.

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)
Gluteal artery perforator flaps have gained popularity due to reliability, preservation of the muscle, versatility in flap design without restricting other flap options, and low donor-site morbidity. Today, free or local flaps based on the perforating arteries of the gluteal region are among the most commonly used procedures for the management of(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)
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)
OBJECT Skin grafts, skin flaps, fasciocutaneous flaps, muscle flaps, and musculocutaneous flaps have been used for closure of large meningomyelocele (MMC) defects that cannot be closed primarily. The V-Y rotation advancement flap technique has been used successfully for the reconstruction of defects in different areas of the body. In the present study, the(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)
Currently, there are various surgical treatment modalities for ingrowing nail. None of these procedures are perfect to achieve esthetic results with low cost, recurrence, and complication rates. Eighty-seven toenails of 77 patients were operated in our clinic; 49 wedge matrix resections (WMR) and 38 partial matricectomy followed by lateral fold advancement(More)
