Volumetric changes in transplanted vascularized fat flaps after ischemic or congestive stresses and their relationship to capillary density in a zucker fatty rat model.


BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to examine volumetric changes in fat flaps after stresses as well as their relationship with capillary density (CD) in a Zucker fatty rat model. METHODS A total of 12 male Zucker-fa/fa rats were randomly divided into two stress groups. Superficial epigastric fat flaps were evaluated on the right side as control and on… (More)
