This study was conducted to determine the survival mechanism of tissue transfers which make use of an afferent arteriovenous fistula. The study was carried out using a rabbit ear chamber method. In the first experiment (n = 34), the rabbit ear was used to create a flap with a central afferent arteriovenous fistula with either dual (n = 28) or single (n = 6) drainage. In the second experiment (n = 6), a flap with a central arteriovenous fistula with single drainage was created as above. The… CONTINUE READING
