  • complications
  • Thus, an understanding of free flaps, their expected appearance on cross-sectional imaging, and their associated complications (including tumor recurrence) is crucial for the interpreting radiologist. (ajnr.org)
  • This review article focuses on free flaps, summarizing what defines an FF, those most commonly used, the expected postoperative imaging appearances, and associated complications. (ajnr.org)
  • Disadvantages Besides a long scar to the abdomen, the surgical sacrifice of the rectus abdominis muscle can result in a higher risk of medical complications of the abdominal donor-site, such as hernia, and consequent intestinal protrusion (bulging), and pain. (wikipedia.org)
  • Transposition
  • Often they are thought to be too ill for more definitive procedures such as a major thoracotomy or muscle flap transposition. (wikipedia.org)
  • artery
  • For all "free flaps", the blood supply is reconstituted using microsurgical techniques to reconnect the artery (brings blood into the flap) and vein (allows blood to flow out of the flap). (wikipedia.org)
  • Grafts
  • They have better functional outcomes and cosmetic restoration than surgical grafts and other types of surgical flaps (local and regional). (ajnr.org)
  • Both are blocks of transferred tissue, but flaps have their own blood supply while grafts depend on angiogenesis. (ajnr.org)
  • plastic surgical
  • The physician Sushruta and his medical students developed and applied plastic surgical techniques for reconstructing noses, genitalia, earlobes, et cetera, that were amputated as religious, criminal, or military punishment. (wikipedia.org)
  • Long Island Plastic Surgical Group (LIPSG) was founded in April 1948 and is the oldest and largest private academic plastic surgery practice in the United States. (wikipedia.org)
  • Long Island Plastic Surgical Group was established by Leonard R. Rubin and Richard H. Walden in April 1948 in Hempstead, New York. (wikipedia.org)
  • By 1978, Long Island Plastic Surgical Group relocated to Mineola, New York and became the first independent center to receive New York State accreditation and certification for its operating rooms. (wikipedia.org)
  • During the 1990s, Long Island Plastic Surgical Group opened a medical spa, now known as Deep Blue Med Spa, which focuses on skincare and non-surgical cosmetic enhancement. (wikipedia.org)
  • As a practice, Long Island Plastic Surgical Group has won #1 Best Plastic Surgery Group for nine straight years (2008-2016), Best BOTOX Practice and Best Laser Treatment Center for Aesthetic Center/Deep Blue Med Spa in the Best of Long Island Awards hosted by the Long Island Press.

  • defect
  • All angles are 60°, which means that every side of both the defect and the flap is equal in length. (medscape.com)
  • This orientation creates a flap that is the same size as the defect to be excised. (medscape.com)
  • With rhomboid defect angles of less than 60°, the Dufourmentel flap is narrower than a Limberg flap. (medscape.com)
  • The flap and surrounding tissue are undermined in the subdermal plane after creating the rhombus defect. (medscape.com)
  • 6 years later Duckett and Keating described the congenital defect in detail and put forth the "pyramid procedure" as a surgical treatment for the patient with MIP ( 2 ). (frontiersin.org)
  • cosmetic
  • Lip augmentation is a type of cosmetic surgery or non-surgical procedure that aims to alter the appearance of the lips by increasing their fullness through enlargement using fillers. (wikipedia.org)
  • mucosa
  • Another disadvantage of the use of the vomer flap in the oral cavity is that the vomer tissue does not aesthetically match the oral mucosa. (wikipedia.org)
  • creates
  • DLK is predominantly associated with Lasik, as the creation of a flap creates a potential space for cells to accumulate. (wikipedia.org)
  • Thus
  • Craniotomy is distinguished from craniectomy (in which the skull flap is not immediately replaced, allowing the brain to swell, thus reducing intracranial pressure) and from trepanation, the creation of a burr hole through the cranium in to the dura mater. (wikipedia.org)
  • Factors
  • Essentially, all the prognostic factors that apply to Mohs surgery and standard surgical excision will also apply to EDC. (wikipedia.org)
  • aesthetic
  • Respect boundaries of aesthetic units when designing a flap. (medscape.com)
  • In the case of the woman with much breast tissue, for whom sub-muscular emplacement is the recommended surgical approach, saline breast implants can afford an aesthetic result much like that afforded by silicone breast implants - a "look" of proportionate breast size, smooth contour, and realistic texture.
