Gingival recession usually corrected by a number of procedures including Lateral pedicle flaps
(4), Coronally positioned flap (5), Free gingival autografts (6), Semilunar coronally repositioned flap (7), Subepithelial connective tissue autografts (8) and Guided tissue regeneration (GTR) procedures (9).
Though the procedure developed by Gaspare Tagliacozzi (1545-99) to repair the nose (known as a pedicle flap
graft in which skin from the bicep was attached to the space where the nose had been) was remarkably lost to history in the following century, Gilman chooses to commence his vast history here because Tagliacozzi was apparently the first to articulate the relationship between physical appearance and psychological happiness.
After placing the mesh in a pedicle flap
in the animals, Vacanti and Donahoe measured the amount of MIS produced in the blood by the transfected cells and calculated the size of the target ovarian tumors that had been implanted in the animals' kidneys.
Trained hand surgeons commonly perform a procedure called a cross-finger pedicle flap
to preserve length reconstructing the finger.
Limitations of this free or pedicle flap
include sacrifice of the radial artery and morbidity at the donor site and adjacent joints, particularly in older patients.
