Abstract:The results of this study, in agreement with previous studies, provide evidence that free-tissue transfer may be performed in ageing patients with a high degree of technical success. The chronologic age cannot be considered an appropriate criterion in the reconstructive decision. On the contrary, a careful selection of the patients based on comorbidities and general conditions (ASA status) is of primary importance in reducing post-operative complications and to improving the results of surgery.
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.
