In the literature related to Fournier's gangrene, gracilis muscle or musculocutaneous
flap is used to fill large and deep perineal defects.
Comparison of outcomes of pressure sore reconstructions among perforator flaps, perforator-based rotation fasciocutaneous flaps, and musculocutaneous
Tanasini, first used the latissimus dorsi musculocutaneous
flap for reconstruction of a post mastectomy chest wall defect6,17.
This would lead to suboptimal pain control due to the remaining unblocked minor neural contributors to the shoulder capsule (i.e., subscapular nerve, lateral pectoral nerve, musculocutaneous
nerve, and superficial cervical plexus) .
The recipient nerve of a CC7 nerve root could be a median nerve, radial nerve, musculocutaneous
nerve, or triceps brachii nerve.
In both the groups, 6 mL of local anaesthetic were initially administered to the musculocutaneous
The flap is based on 87 per cent musculocutaneous
perforators rather than septocutaneous vessels at only 13 per cent.
The mechanism behind these nerves combining to create this pain pattern while other C5 nerves including the axillary, median, or musculocutaneous
nerve, are rarely affected, is unknown and not in the scope of this paper.
Assessment of sensory block was done at each minute after completion of drug injection in the dermatomal areas corresponding to median nerve, radial nerve, ulnar nerve and musculocutaneous
nerve till no pinprick sensation (Grade 2) felt in all the dermatomes.
Transaxillary-sub cl avian transfer of pedicled latissimus dorsi musculocutaneous
flap to head and neck region.
McKissock in 1972 perpetuated the importance of retaining the pectoralis fascia, essentially protecting the musculocutaneous
perforator of the internal mammary artery.
The purpose of this study was to examine our hypotheses that BoTA provide protection of musculocutaneous
flap from ischemia-reperfusion injury.
