The purpose of this study is to determine if 1) a continuous glucose monitoring system can measure glucose levels in transferred tissue during reconstructive surgery, and 2) if glucose measurements from a continuous glucose monitoring system correlate with tissue blood perfusion.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Perfusion and tissue transfer outcome during reconstructive surgery predicted by continuous glucose monitoring of tissue [ Time Frame: Up to three days post-op ]

Enrollment: 3
Study Start Date: August 2009
Study Completion Date: June 2011
Primary Completion Date: June 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Blood Glucose Measurement
Subjects have sensors placed on skin before surgery and these sensors will measure the subject's glucose until the third day after surgery when they are removed.
Device: Continuous glucose monitoring system
one or two monitors will be placed in the tissue to be transferred
