There are a number of surgical options to cure anal fissures, including dermal flap coverage (also known as an anal advancement flap) in which adjacent skin (dermal flap) can be moved into the anus to cover the fissure. Anal advancement flap is an alternative to lateral internal sphincterotomy (LIS) for chronic anal fissures Free flap coverage has helped reduce the often bulky pedicled flap seen, particularly in muscle flaps. It also allows direct closure in the majority of the donor regions. A skin graft to this site should only be used if the donor flap is of special significance (superiority in function/shape etc) Wound coverage techniques 2 - flap principles (OTA lecture series III g14b) - YouTube. Wound coverage techniques 2 - flap principles (OTA lecture series III g14b) Watch later. Share The flap can certainly be used to provide coverage for the palmar surface of the hand; however, the flap can be bulky, and does not at all approximate the native, adherent, glabrous skin of the palm. This can leave the palm with a bulky flap that is prone to shearing motion when weight is borne on the palmar surface of the hand, such as seen with pushing, gripping, tool use, or twisting motions The medial gastrocnemius transposition flap usually provides adequate soft tissue coverage to salvage the total knee arthroplasty. However, variations in defect location and excursion of the muscle flap can affect results. Twelve patients were treated with a medial gastrocnemius transposition flap after total knee arthroplasty
Flap surgeries for pressure sores have a very high failure rate in the adult population, with an incidence between 25% and 85%. To improve the chances of successful flap surgery: Acute infections. The flap can be elevated with a proximal (anterograde) or distal (retrograde or reversed) pedicle. The anterograde flap is useful for coverage of the elbow, as either a pedicled flap or a free flap. The reverse radial forearm flap can cover the volar and dorsal hand to and can reach the tips of the fingers Local hand flaps offer excellent coverage of soft tissue loss when a skin graft is not eligible and when the defect is small or moderate. The knowledge of the neurovascular anatomy is paramount in order to understand and perform these flaps. Most local flaps provide adequate sensation and cosmesis using locoregional skin
The subepithelial connective tissue graft with a cornonally advanced flap is gold standard grafting procedure . Prognosis (amount of root coverage achieved) will depend on the severity (size )of recession . Careful case selection and surgical management are critical if a successful outcome is to be achieved This article provides our experience with 45 ischial sores and 24 sacral sores in 53 paraplegic patients between 1990 and 1995. Data were evaluated as to the sites of sores and types of the transferred flaps. Types of the transferred flaps were categorized into the fasciocutaneous flap and the myocutaneous or muscle flap The FCU flap is a simple and reliable local technical solution, adapted to treating small- and moderate-sized cutaneous substance loss in the olecranon region. This flap provides good-quality coverage and allows early mobilization of the elbow. Disclosure of interest. The authors declare that they have no conflicts of interest concerning this article Typical indications for flap coverage include exposed tendons, bones, or joints. Local skin flaps may also be used to reconstruct skin defects in highly visible areas such as the face after skin cancer excision
The lumbar perforator flap is a reliable local option with low donor site morbidity. It is a powerful tool for local trunk reconstruction, but its use in case of osteomyelitis is scarcely described. We aimed to report long-term outcomes of lumbar perforator flaps to cover lumbar soft tissue defects with chronic osteomyelitis This study compares outcomes after muscle and non-muscle flap coverage of pressure sores to investigate whether it is still necessary to incorporate muscle tissue as part of the surgical treatment of these ulcers Although, gastrocnemius flap was introduced since 1978 is still the most commonly used flap for knee coverage, due to its reliable axial blood supply and ease of dissection. The gastrocnemius flap is a type I (single vascular pedicle) according to the Mathe et al [ 31 ] classification with dominant vessel in most patients the media sural artery Early flap coverage can reduce the number of amputation from 62 to 29% (about 54% decrease in the rate of amputation). We had no mortality, which may be attributed to good prehospital care and emergency care of the patients or good fluid resuscitation during first 48 hr. About 56% of the patients were discharged with complete recovery Outcomes between early and delayed coverage groups were then compared after propensity score matching. In this analysis, delayed coverage was associated with a significant increase in surgical complications during the index admission when compared with early definitive flap coverage (16.7% vs. 6.2%; P. 0.001). The number needed to harm was only 10
Free flaps. • Used for wound coverage over distal third of tibia, or in the middle and proximal leg when soleus and gastrocnemius are damaged. Groin flap. • Axial flap that has been a mainstay of providing soft-tissue coverage of the upper extremity. • Based on thesuperficial circumflex iliac artery Rotation flaps provide the ability to mobilize large areas of tissue with a wide vascular base for reconstruction. The name rotation flap refers to the vector of motion of the flap, which is curved or rotational, and the procedure involving these flaps can be thought of as the closure of a triangular defect by rotating adjacent skin around a rotation point (or fulcrum) into the defect (see. Although, gastrocnemius flap was introduced since 1978 is still the most commonly used flap for knee coverage, due to its reliable axial blood supply and ease of dissection. The gastrocnemius flap is a type I (single vascular pedicle) according to the Mathe et al [ 31 ] classification with dominant vessel in most patients the media sural artery The transposition flap is commonly described as a rectangular flap that adjoins an existing defect and is moved laterally for defect coverage. In contrast to the rotation flap, the transposition flap is moved or transposed over an area of intact tissue as it is transferred into the defect. The more the flap is transposed, the shorter it becomes
Great care and operative time is put into the correct flap dimensions for coverage. As described earlier, the flap is based on an ipsilateral 1.3- to 1.5-cm pedicle. It is Dopplered at the brow to capture the dominant arterial inflow. It is important to remember that the flap is always rotated medially Aims . To assess the bone dimensional changes after extraction and alveolar ridge preservation (ARP) using primary coverage (closed flap technique, CFT) or healing by secondary intention (open flap technique, OFT). Materials and Methods . Ten patients (split mouth design) were planned for extraction and ARP. All sites received ARP with freeze-dried bone allograft (FDBA) and nonresorbable. Flaps are traditionally indicated for coverage of wounds with exposed tendon (without peritenon), nerves, bone, blood vessels, joints, and hardware, often on the volar surface of the hand or digits.Many local, regional, and free flap options exist and for soft tissue coverage in the hand.49,50Arterialized venous free flaps deserve special. We covered the defect with a 4.5- × 10-cm 2 type IIA KDPIF with SMU modification from the lower side of the defect. Flap inset and donor site closure were performed without tension or drain placement. Incisional NPWT was applied. The flap completely survived without flap-related complications or other postoperative complications The standard of care in mediastinitis includes thorough sequential debridement, flap coverage, and culture-directed antibiotics. The most frequently utilized muscles for flap reconstruction include the rectus abdominus and the pectoralis major. However, in some instances these flaps may be inadequate, unavailable, or fail, thus requiring an.
Lateral calcaneal flap is an established surgical option for coverage of lateral calcaneum and posterior heel defects. Lateral calcaneal flap vascularization and innervations are based on lateral calcaneal artery neurovascular bundle, that is, lateral calcaneal artery, small saphenous vein, and sural nerve. Anatomical research has allowed exploration of its many advantages but can also lead to. a. Methods: War-related extremity injuries necessitating a downrange vascular procedure followed by a definitive limb reconstruction were reviewed. Patient demographics, type and location of vascular injuries, vascular intervention, and soft-tissue reconstruction procedures were examined. Outcomes of vascular repair, tissue transfer, and limb salvage were analyzed. Results: From 2003 to 2012. ult patients (≥16 years) undergoing surgery for (1) an open tibia (including ankle) fracture and (2) a soft-tissue flap during their index admission between January 1, 2012, and December 31, 2015, were eligible for inclusion. Exposure: Time from hospital arrival to definitive flap coverage (in days). Main outcome measurements: The primary outcome was a composite of the following. An island-type reverse superficial sural artery flap (RSSAF) was used for coverage of the wound. (A) The lateral malleolar defect after debridement, showing exposed tendon and fibula defect. (B) Outline of the flap. (C) Final wound closure, including skin graft coverage of the donor site and flap pedicle. (D) Healed wound at 4 months A major advantage of perforator flaps is the preservation of the major vessels of the forearm; the ulnar and radial arteries are not sacrificed. The ulnar artery perforator flap can be used for coverage of defects of the ulnar hand and wrist, both dorsal and volar, typically up to 10 × 5 cm in size. 1. Larger flaps, up to 20 × 9 cm, can be.
Flap covering the defect in the immediate postoperative. I have used this technique as an island flap in 12 patients with coverage defects on the dorsal or volar hand, between January 2007 and March 2013; 11 with coverage defect in the dorsal hand and one of the volar hand, with ages between 12 and 54 years. The biggest flap obtained was 13 6 cm A flap is a piece of tissue that is still attached to the body by a major artery and vein or at its base. This piece of tissue with its attached blood supply is used in reconstructive surgery by being set into a recipient site (injured area onto which a flap or graft is placed). Sometimes, the flap is comprised of skin and fatty tissue only, but a flap may also include muscle from the donor. Fasciocutaneous rotation flaps can be rotated from medial to lateral to provide adequate coverage of plantar hardware used for the Charcot foot or for unstable midfoot and rearfoot pathologies . Because of the required skin grafting component, strict elevation and bed rest must be enforced for 5 to 7 days, therefore increasing hospitalization. How to cover a gum recession?

YES! The Women's Health and Cancer Right Act, signed in 1998, is a federal law that mandates coverage for breast cancer care. This includes: Reconstruction of the breast removed by mastectomy with a breast implant or a DIEP flap.This reconstructive surgery can occur either immediately during the same surgery as the mastectomy or at another time, known as a delayed reconstruction Flap loss was defined as a need for coverage-revision surgery. Partial flap necrosis was defined as necrosis that necessitated surgical debridement but did not require additional coverage surgery. Early infections were defined as a wound infection at the coverage site within 2 weeks of flap transfer that required a return to the operating theater radial flap is a good reliable option but it involves sacrificing of a major vascular axis.11 The dorsal ulnar artery perforator flap is a local flap for coverage of small defects of hand.12 It provides robust, thin and pliable soft tissue cover, dissection of the flap is easy, it is based on a perforator rathe
Various flaps have been described for the coverage of these defects around the knee, such as local (muscle, fasciocutaneous, perforator) flaps, cross-leg flap, or free flaps. Though these flaps are very reliable, the outcome of reconstruction at this site often falls below satisfaction, frequently compromising knee joint functions and appearance When the left hind limb wound was covered with healthy granulation tissue, the defect was closed with a genicular axial pattern skin flap. Post-operatively, antibiotics and analgesics were administered; bandages were applied. Flap tip oedema and partial thickness skin loss concerning the epidermis were observed Stability and dimension of the laterally positioned flap (the wider the pedicle, the greater the blood supply to the marginal portion of the flap) is critical for accomplishing root coverage. Tissue thickness of the flap is an important aspect on the root coverage predictability and an improvement in esthetic outcome enous congestion of the flaps and their treatments require further clarification. Methods Extended RDMA flaps were used to cover the finger defects extending from the PIP joints to the fingertips in a series of 16 patients. The reconstructed fingers included the index, middle, ring, and little fingers; thumb reconstruction was not included in this study. The flap size ranged from 2.5 × 1.8 to. In a European meta-analysis by Bekara et al. investigating failure rates of perforator propeller flaps in the distal third of the lower leg when compared to free flaps, partial flap necrosis was noted to be significantly higher in pedicled-propeller flaps (6.88% vs. 2.70%, P = 0.001) but soft tissue coverage was not impacted (2.99% [95%.
In a series of 70 sural flaps used for soft tissue coverage of the distal leg, the overall success rate was 86% for the flap alone or combined with a skin graft. However, the partial or complete flap necrosis rate was 36%, which was unfavourable Pini Prato GP, Baldi C, Nieri M, Franseschi D, Cortellini P, Clauser C, Rotundo R, Muzzi L. Coronally advanced flap: the post-surgical position of the gingival margin is an important factor for achieving complete root coverage. J Periodontol. 2005 May;76(5):713-22 Flap repair is considered reconstructive and medically necessary in certain circumstances . For medical necessity clinical coverage criteria, refer to the InterQua
Several techniques have been implicated for root coverage, which includes pedicle grafts, free gingival grafts, connective tissue grafts, and guided-tissue regeneration. The double-papillae flap associated with subepithelial connective tissue is a predictable technique to cover isolated areas with insufficient attached gingiva apical to a.

Section 1862(a) (1) (A) of Codes 15733-15738 are described by donor site of the muscle, myocutaneous or fasciocutaneous flap A repair of a donor site requiring a skin graft or local flaps is considered an additional separate procedur The instep medial plantar flap is a well-known flap based on the medial plantar artery of the foot and usually used for coverage of soft tissue defects of the heel area. It has seldom been reported for coverage of anterior ankle area with exposure of the bone and metallic hardware after open.
Coverage for breast reconstruction* and breast prostheses following mastectomy or lumpectomy is governed by federal and/or state mandates. tissue/muscle reconstruction procedures (e.g., flaps), including, but not limited to, the following: o deep inferior epigastric perforator (DIEP) flap o latissimus dorsi (LD) myocutaneous flap • Soft tissue coverage Secondary goal function after flap harvest • Stable arterial supply, few variation • Diameter of artery, length of pedicle • Cutaneous nerve. Different categories of FLAPs • Blood supply - Random or Axial • Method of transfer - Pedicle or Fre Indications for Flap Coverage •Skin graft cannot be used -Exposed cartilage, tendon (without paratenon), bone, open joints, metal implants •Flap coverage is preferable -flexor joint surfaces avoid contracture -durablitiy required .

The gum flap will be sewn back into place and covered with gauze to stop the bleeding. Bone may be: Smoothed and reshaped so that plaque has fewer places to grow. Repaired (grafted) with bone from another part of the body or with man-made materials. The doctor may place a lining on the bone graft to help the bone grow back .One of the more useful regional flaps is the thenar flap, detailed in this classic article (pdf file).

Wound Coverage Techniques for the Injured Extremity Mark R. Bagg, MD 2. Objectives • Review initial care, principles of closure debridement, and timing of soft tissue coverage • Methods of coverage - Open - Primary vs. Secondary - Skin grafting - Flap • Options for specific site Use fasciocutaneous flaps to provide coverage when a skin graft or random skin flap is insufficient for coverage (eg, in coverage over tendon or bones). Orient the flap along the direction of the supplying vessel; knowledge of the direction or orientation of the fascial plexus, the fasciocutaneous perforators, and the fascial septum is required The soft tissue at the tip of the olecranon is very thin, leading to the frequent occurrence of wound complications after total elbow arthroplasty. To cover a soft tissue defect of the elbow, the flexor carpi ulnaris muscle flap is thought to be appropriate for reconstruction of the elbow with regard to its size, location, and blood supply. We got positive clinical results, so we report our.
A Comparison Between Primary and Secondary Flap Coverage in Extraction Sites: A Pilot Study The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators .8 mm was associated with 100% of root coverage. The results of this study indicate that there is a direct relation between flap thickness and recession reduction (P <0.0001). J Periodontol 1999;70:1077-1084
A single venae commitans. Up to 15 centimeters. The latissimus dorsi muscle is the largest muscle in the body, up to 20 by 40 centimeters, allowing coverage of extremely large wounds. In spite of its size, no significant donor functional deficit results from removal of the muscle. It is the largest flap that can be harvested on a single. A flap surgery is followed by months of recovery and very little time out of bed. This is a sample of what to expect if a pressure ulcer is so severe that a flap surgery is needed. The following is a post taken from a public forum written by the nurse moderator for the forum site The patient recovered without any major postoperative complications. Conclusion . Seromuscular colonic flap is a useful option for soft-tissue coverage after pelvic extirpation and should be considered by plastic surgeons when other reconstruction options are not available Wound coverage in the supra-patellar area presents a significant challenge for orthopaedic and reconstructive surgeons due to the need for preservation of knee joint function but the paucity of regional soft tissue flaps available. While many orthopaedic and reconstructive surgeons make use of the rotational gastrocnemius flap for coverage of peri-patellar defects, this flap has certain.
Three months later, the test group showed a mean recession reduction of 2.18 ± 0.60 mm, a mean percent root coverage of 78 ± 15%, and complete root coverage was achieved on 2 teeth (18%). In the control group the mean recession reduction was 2.32 ± 0.81 mm and mean percent root coverage was 87 ± 13% Medicare Coverage: Medicare covers HBOT when it is utilized for graft or flap salvage in cases where hypoxia or decreased perfusion has compromised the viability of an existing skin graft or flap. Medicare coverage does not apply to the initial preparation of the body site for a graft. [1 Flap coverage was used to close 12 axillae in 9 patients (3 patients had both axillae treated). These flaps included Limberg 4; random fasciocutaneous 3; parascapular fasciocutaneous: 5. Our experience suggests that wound closure after wide excision in the axilla is best achieved by means of a flap Treatment modalities included coronally advanced flap, connective tissue graft, and guided tissue regeneration with and without adjuncts. A significant moderate correlation occurred between weighted flap thickness and weighted mean root coverage and weighted complete root coverage (r = 0.646 and 0.454, respectively)
The use of a bipedicle flap for skin coverage after DMC excision has the following advantages: 1.The flap is safe due to its dual pedicle blood supply, thus decreasing the risk of flap necrosis or flap failure. 2.Bipedicle flaps allow increased tissue movement by direct advancement . However, she developed a recurrence of the infection 10 months after intervention and died of multiple organ failure. Treatment selection and in-hospital death are shown in Fig. 1. In-hospital mortality rate was 23% (8/35 patients) and 35%. The small number of patients in our report is the main limiting factor of this study. However, soft tissue complications requiring flap coverage in ankle fractures is a rare situation and a larger study would allow us to refine the limitations of using PTAPF for the reconstruction of soft tissue complications of ankle fracture surgeries
Here, we aim to compare two fasciocutaneous flap designs for sacral defect coverage: the gluteal rotation flap and the gluteal V-Y flap. All primary sacral pressure sores of grades III-IV that were being covered with gluteal fasciocutaneous rotational or V-Y flaps between January 2008 and December 2014 at our institution were analysed The rock rain was cut dramatically. However, I still could hear more rocks peppering the sides than I wanted, so I decided to take the plunge on the Brooklyn-priced Rally Armor flaps and try those instead. I haven't driven with them yet, but here's an animated-gif comparison of the coverage difference between the two
Narrow flap donor sites may be closed primarily by approximation, but larger donor sites will require coverage with partial -thickness skin grafts.
