Even though DIEP-SIEA flaps or latissimus dorsi musculocutaneous flap are the most frequently used, a wide variety of flaps have been described for autologous breast reconstruction. Concerning the choice of donor-site, the aim is to prevent and to limit the morbidity. That is why the donor-site should be carefully chosen, according to the morphology of the patient. Lumbar artery perforator flap (LAP) is an option for breast reconstruction, but it is not well known and its use is limited. This study summarizes the authors' early experience with free LAP flap for breast reconstruction...

Microsurgical procedure of free tissue transfer in critical limb ischemia patients with large ulceration has already been established. The nutrient flap concept was that transferred tissue functioned not only to cover the skin defect but also as a supplementary blood supply to the ischemic lower leg. This report showed the justification for this concept, which was rarely discussed. A 58-year-old male patient with progressive forefoot gangrene caused by arteriosclerosis obliterans was presented. The distal bypass procedure was performed as revascularization surgery, and a latissimus dorsi (LD) myocutaneous flap was transplanted to cover ulceration...

Thoracic surgical procedures can be either thoracotomy or thoracoscopy. In thoracotomy, the incision could be either muscle-cutting or muscle-sparing incision. The posterolateral thoracotomy incision is used for most general thoracic surgical procedures. This incision, which involves division of the latissimus dorsi and serratus anterior muscles, affords excellent exposure of the thoracic cavity. However, it is associated with significant morbidity, including impaired pulmonary function, postoperative chest pain, and restricted arm and shoulder movement...

BACKGROUND: Vascular injuries resulting in limb ischemia are traditionally treated acutely with autologous or prosthetic bypass grafts. Traumatic contaminated injuries with soft tissue and vascular segmental loss are challenging as prosthetic bypasses are at risk of erosion, infection, and occlusion; and autologous bypasses are at risk of desiccation, blow-out, infection, and clotting. We propose a novel approach to these injuries by using arterialized saphenous vein venous flow-through free flaps (S-VFTF) as an autologous bypass, and present the results of its application in a series of cases...

BACKGROUND: Some intractable cases of postcraniotomy infection, which can involve compromised skin, an open frontal air sinus, and residual epidural dead space, have been reported. In such cases, reconstructing the scalp and skull is challenging. METHODS: Between 2009 and 2016, the author treated 12 patients with recalcitrant postcraniotomy surgical site infections with latissimus dorsi (LD) free flaps. The patients' ages ranged from 37 to 79 years (mean, 63.5 years), and their underlying diseases included subarachnoid hemorrhaging (n = 5), brain tumors (n = 4), and cerebral arteriovenous malformations (n = 3)...

INTRODUCTION: High-tension electricity can cause devastating injuries that may result in abdominal wall loss, visceral damage, and sometimes major threat to life. The visceral organ may be exposed after debridement and require flap cover, but the tensile strength of abdominal wall may be lack even if flap transplanted. METHODS: From April 2007 through May 2015, 5 patients with severe abdominal electrical injury were treated at our hospital. Exploratory laparotomy was performed based on their clinical manifestations and debridement findings of abdominal wall at early stage, and decision regarding technique for reconstruction of abdominal wall was based on an assessment of the location and extent of the defect...

Gymnasts perform handstands on various apparatus, both in stable and unstable conditions. Such performances require specific muscle activation, which should differ depending on the condition and expertise of the gymnast. Therefore, the aim of the study was to evaluate 1) the difference in electromyography (EMG) between handstands performed on three apparatus (floor, rings and parallel bars); and 2) the difference between young and well-trained adult gymnasts. Ten adult (25 ± 3.94 years) and 15 young (13.9 ± 0...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: The clinical application of laser-assisted vascular anastomosis is afflicted by unreliable and low bonding strengths as well as tedious handling during microvascular surgery. The challenge to be met arises from the flow-off of the chromophore during soldering that changes the absorption and stains the surrounding tissue, leading to an uncontrollable thermal damage zone. In this study, we investigated the feasibility to produce an indocyanine green (ICG)-loaded patch by electrospinning and tested its applicability to both in vitro and in vivo microvascular laser soldering...
