ABSTRACT To date, surgical delay of skin flaps is the most common and reliable method that increases skin flap survival. In this study, we aimed to increase skin flap viability using preconditioning by microneedling. Seventy-two Sprague Dawley rats were randomly divided into control, surgical flap delay (SFD) and four microneedling groups (seven or 14 days of preconditioning with 0.5 or 1 mm needles). Modified McFarlane flaps were raised on the back of the rats. In Group I, a caudal pedicled ski...

: Repairing soft tissue defects of the forehead which exposes the bare bone is a dilemma with few reconstructive techniques for plastic surgeons. Forehead is an important aesthetic unit of the face which is covered with the glabrous skin. Due to the relative lack of similar mobile tissue locally, reconstruction of large soft tissue defects of the forehead region by local flaps is demanding. Temporalis muscle flap does not reach to the midline of the forehead region because of the insufficient le...

: Surrounding the zone of coagulation is the zone of stasis, which is characterized as a mix of viable and nonviable cells, capillary vasoconstriction, and ischemia. Saving the zone of stasis is a major subject of the burn wound studies. If pathological changes in the zone of stasis can be minimized, conversion of burn wounds may be prevented. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of pentoxifylline (PTX) on the zone of stasis in burns and burn wound healing. Twenty Sprague-Dawley ...

Tension of the wound edges should be overcome with precise surgical planning, which is recognized as one of the major contributors to local complications by compromising circulation of the wound edges. In this article, it was aimed to present the clinical results of a surgical technique, in which the plastic straps and Kirschner wires are used for delayed primary closure of traumatic tension wounds. Depending on the assessment of the wound localization, wound dimension, and mobility of adjacent ...

BACKGROUND: Body region-dependent hair follicle (HF) characteristics are concerned with follicular size and distribution, and have been demonstrated to have characteristics for each region of the body. OBJECTIVES: The aim of the present study was to investigate the expression patterns of the markers called cytokeratin 15 (K15), cytokeratin 6 (K6) and monoclonal antibody Ki-67, and also apoptosis in HFs, which can be observed in different parts of the human body. MATERIAL AND METHODS: In this stu...

Early tangential excision of the burn wound is essential for removal of necrotic tissue and promotion of burn wound healing process. However, the depth of the burn wound is not easily assessed during the tangential excision performed by hand-held dermatomes, and it may be possible to excise unburned vital dermis unnecessarily, which aids in primary epithelization of the burn wound by adnexal structures. We herein present early clinical results of steel wool-aided dermabrasion in patients with de...

Split thickness skin graft (STSG) harvesting from the anterior chest and abdominal wall skin is quite a difficult process. The main reason for the difficulty to perform this process is the unsuitable anatomic characteristics of the anterior trunk, such as irregular wavy-like surface over the ribs and lax abdominal wall skin resulting in collapse due to lack of adequate underneath supporting structures when a downward force is applied by the skin graft dermatome. Lower extremity and especially th...
