Surgical and Radiologic Anatomy Aims and scope Submit manuscript

Summary

An anatomical study made in 25 injected fresh subjects made it possible to map out the periosteal flaps capable of being raised on the limbs. The preferred donor sites are the distal third of the humerus, the iliac fossa and the distal third of the femur. At the last 2 sites composite osteo-periosteal or musculo-osteo-periosteal flaps can be raised. These technical possibilities illustrate the importance of experimental studies which have shown the osteogenic capacity of grafts of vascularized periosteum.

Résumé

Cette étude anatomique réalisée sur 25 sujets frais, injectés a permis de dresser une cartographie des lambeaux périostés susceptibles d'être prélevés aux membres. Les sites donneurs préférentiels sont le tiers distal de l'humérus, la fosse iliaque et le tiers distal du fémur. Pour les 2 derniers sites, des lambeaux composites ostéo-périostés ou musculo-ostéo-périostés peuvent être prélevés. Ces possibilités techniques concrétisent l'intérêt des études expérimentales qui ont montré le pouvoir ostéogénique des greffes de périoste vascularisé.
