Indikationen für die Arterialisation von Gewebe
Indications for Tissue Arterialization
Data from 69 arterialized venous flaps and transplants were reviewed and showed an overall complication rate of 18.6%. Possible hemodynamic mechanisms include, among others, the opening of macro- and microvenous interconnecting pathways with in the perivenous areolar tissue and pressure-induced insufficiency of venouf valves. The use of arterialized venous flaps increases the plastic surgeon’s armamentarium if standard local or distant flap procedures are not possible, and the use of a vein to provide arterial inflow into an amputated body part presents a suitable alternative if arteries are not available and venous congestion is controlled.
