Tumoral calcinosis is a rare calcifying disorder with deposition of calcium phosphate and calcium hydroxyapatite within the soft tissue at periarticular sites. There have been series of sporadic cases of tumoral calcinosis in the trunk and the extremities due to renal failure. However, we describe a 35-year-old woman without renal problems or trauma history(More)
The free flap failure rate for the lower extremities is high, which adversely affects limb salvage efforts. In this article, we report a case of failure of a thoracodorsal artery perforator flap, which was simultaneously reconstructed with a serratus anterior muscle flap from the same donor site. A 56-year-old male patient had infected wound for 3 months(More)
CA SE PRE SENTATION A 72-year-old white woman was referred to us 9 days after she experienced an episode of acute angle-closure glaucoma in her right eye. She had presented to the referring ophthalmologist with a complaint of a rightsided periorbital headache, nausea, and blurry vision upon awakening. Her right eye’s IOP was in the 50s and could not be(More)
Developments in microsurgical techniques and instruments have enabled the high success rate of microvascular tissue transfers. Initially, the survival of a free flap is dependent on its vascular pedicle, and the failure of flaps generally occurs within seven days of surgery. Several experimental studies have shown that pedicles can be ligated 5 to 10 days(More)
