Abstract:Donor-site morbidity following raising of an ALT flap is minimal. ALT-flap versatility fulfils all of the needs of reconstruction, however we identified less common, but straightforward, complications that occurred when elevating overly large skin paddles (with widths measuring more than 10-12 cm), when sacrificing a main motor branch, when developing the pedicle too far proximally, when including too much fascia and when neglecting proper haemostasis. We suggest a basic algorithm for minimising donor-site mor…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
