“The aim of this study was to analyze gait function and muscular strength on donor site after harvesting of a vascularized fibula osteoseptocutaneous flap. Nine patients with a mean follow-up of 33 months (range, 7–59) and a mean resection length of the middle portion of the fibula of 18.0 cm (range, 14.0–23.0) underwent an instrumented three-dimensional gait analysis to evaluate gait function. Furthermore, CYBEX II extremity system was used for muscular strength measurements. Subjective muscle strength measurements were performed according
to Kendall et al. and were classified according to the British Medical Research Council. Intraindividual comparison between the operated and the nonoperated leg revealed no significant differences selleck kinase inhibitor for gait function parameters (cadence, velocity, and stride length, P > 1.00) and for muscular strength measurements for flexion (knee: P = 0.93, ankle: P = 0.54) and extension (knee: P = 0.97, ankle: P= 0.21), respectively. In conclusion, intraindividual comparison of the operated and nonoperated sides after harvesting of the middle portion of the fibula for gaining a free fibula osteoseptocutaneous flap has no adverse affect on gait function or muscular flexion and extension
strength on donor site at a mean follow-up of 33 months. © 2012 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. Microsurgery, 2012. “
“The treatment of total brachial oxyclozanide plexus avulsion injury is difficult with unfavorable prognosis. This report presents our experience on the contralateral C7 (CC7) nerve root transfer to neurotize two recipient nerves in the patients with total BPAI. Twenty-two patients underwent CC7 transfer to two target nerves in the injured upper limb. The patients’ ages ranged from 13 to 48 years. The entire CC7 was transferred to pedicled ulnar nerve in the first stage. The interval between trauma and surgery ranged from 1 to 13 months. The ulnar nerve was transferred to recipients (median nerve and biceps branch or median nerve and triceps branch) at 2–13 months after first operation. The motor recovery of wrist and finger flexor to M3 or greater was achieved in 68.2% of patients, the sensory recovery of median nerve area recovered to S3 or greater in 45.5% of patients. The functional recovery of elbow flexor to M3 or greater was achieved in 66.7% of patients with repair of biceps branch and 20% of patients with repair of the triceps branch (P < 0.05). There were no statistical differences in median nerve function recovery at comparisons of the age younger and older than 20-years-old and the intervals between trauma and surgery.
