BACKGROUND: Despite the well-known high donor site morbidity of the radial forarm flap, it has still remained the first option for the reconstruction of the tongue and the floor of mouth. However, a desire for an alternative, thin fasciocutaneous flap has led to the use of the median sural artery perforator flap. METHODS: Three patients had reconstructive surgery used MSAP flaps, after radical tumor excision. RESULTS: The flap was based in all cases on a dominant perforator vessel...

OBJECTIVES: Reconstruction of the head and neck continues to pose a significant challenge for reconstructive surgeons. In many cases microsurgical free flaps provide superior functional and aesthetic results with limited donor-site morbidity and are considered as a method of choice. The purpose of this article was to present the experience of our institution with free flaps used for reconstruction of various cutaneous and mucosal defects in the head and neck region. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This is a retrospective study of 9 consecutive patients who received free revascularized soft tissue flaps for reconstruction in the head and neck area...

Primary hyperparathyroidism is one of the important endocrine disorders in urological field because it very often causes the recurrent urolithiasis. We experienced more than 800 cases of it since the middle of 20th century. We present the general aspect of primary hyperparathyroidism from the view point of urology. The other parathyroid hyperfunction is a secondary hyperparathyroidism, which has increased according to the long time hemodialysis. The management of secondary hyperparathyroidism basically should be performed by the hemodialysist from the first, but not a few patients resist to the medical control of parathyroid function...

Transepidermal water loss (TEWL) was measured from the abdomen, buttock, and central forearm in 13 term infants by employing an electrolytic water analyzer (Meeco). The hydration level (HL) at these sites following one hour of occlusion and the resulting post-occlusion TEWL were measured. No apparent difference in TEWL was found between regional sites. The forearm and buttock HL appeared similar, while the abdomen values tended to differ considerably from both. Post-occlusion TEWL appeared significantly higher than normal TEWL...

A photographic measuring technique has been used to study the lengths of the upper arm and forearm in normal British girls. The data are presented graphically, and show: 1. Ellipses which include 97 per cent of normal subjects when upper arm length is plotted against forearm length. 2. Variation of upper arm length and forearm length according to age. 3. Variation of upper arm length in relation to forearm length, irrespective of age. 4. Variation of upper arm length and forearm length in relation to sitting height, irrespective of age...
