Özet

Objective: Distal flap necrosis resulting from ischemia is a serious problem, and increases the cost of treatment. Reactive oxygen radicals (ROS) play an important role in tissue injury and ischemia, and may lead to partial or complete flap necrosis. Aminoguanidine (AG), a potent antioxidant, prevents ROS formation and lipid peroxidation. Besides, AG inhibits inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) leading to decreased generation of nitric oxide (NO).
