Effect of electrical stimulation on survival of skin flaps in pigs.

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of electrical stimulation on ischemia-induced tissue injury in skin flaps. Bipedicle skin flaps measuring 4 X 20 cm were created bilaterally on the flanks of 12 Yorkshire pigs. The ischemic central portions of the flaps were treated with 35 mA of electrical current at a frequency of 128 Hz for 30… (More)
