Previously, muscle flaps and the omentum have been used to indirectly vascularize tissues. Induction of synangiogenesis, or indirect vascularization through the formation of collateral vessels, occurs through the development of vascular connections at the interface between the donor and recipient tissues. Unfortunately, muscle and omental flaps are bulky… CONTINUE READING
