OBJECTIVE Distal skin flap ischemic necrosis is a significant challenge in reconstructive surgery. This study assessed whether extracorporeal shock wave (ESW) treatment rescues compromised flap tissue by enhancing tissue perfusion and is associated with suppression of inflammatory response. METHODS This study used the dorsal skin random flap model in a rodent. Thirty-six male Sprague Dawley rats were divided into three groups. Group I, a control group, received no treatment. Group II was… CONTINUE READING
