[The use of MPG in preventing the post-reperfusion injury of an epigastric island flap: an experimental study in rats].


The objective of this work was to study the protective effects of the free radical scavenger N2-mercaptopropionylglycine used in a rat model of reperfusion of epigastric island flaps submitted to transient occlusion of their vascular pedicles. In one group the epigastic vein of the flap was occluded for 5 hours. In the second group the epigastric artery was… (More)
