Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


There is a need for a laboratory model that would allow assessment of the effects of vascular pedicle compression in the myocutaneous flap. We describe a technique as used in the pig that responds to the needs of technical reproducibility and sequential compromise of vascular flow as measured by laser velocimetry and dermofluorometry.
