Comparisons of the postoperative rectus abdominis muscle thickness and the biomechanical properties of donor sites among different subtypes of muscle-sparing transverse rectus abdominis myocutaneous flaps (MS0, MS1, MS2, MS3): a rat model.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The primary presumed advantages of the deep inferior epigastric perforator flap over the other muscle-sparing (MS) transverse rectus abdominis myocutaneous flaps are the improved functional rectus abdominis muscle outcomes and decreased abdominal contour morbidities. The purpose of this study was to verify this viewpoint objectively and… (More)
