• Clinical impact of DIEP Flap Perforator Characteristics - A Prospective Indocyanine Green Fluorescence Imaging Study

    One year ago - By Journal of Plastic, Reconstructive & Aesthetic Surgery

    The question to what extent perfusion in Deep-inferior-epigastric-perforator flaps depends on specific perforator characteristics has been raised. Anatomical studies and previous clinical trials focusing on DIEP flap perfusion resulted in discrepancies. This prospective study investigates how perforator row, number and diameter affect DIEP flap microperfusion via Indocyanine-Green fluorescence angiography.

  • SCIP Flap In High-Risk Extremity Reconstruction: Anatomical Study of additional superficial Venous Patterns and Implications in Caucasian Patients

    One year ago - By Journal of Plastic, Reconstructive & Aesthetic Surgery

    Superficial circumflex iliac artery perforator flap is commonly used but only limited data on the anatomical distribution of superficial veins in these flaps are available. Therefore, we sought to determine the anatomic distribution and characteristics of additional superficial veins and also describe our clinical experience.
