Composite resection of the advanced or-mandibular cancer results in extensive defects which poses a challenge to the treating team as it will be difficult to restore mastication, speech and swallowing function. In head and neck cancers, free flaps have been used increasingly to cover the defect with the help of experienced and trained surgeons with fine skills of micro-vascular procedures. However , free flaps are not easily available at all centers in developing countries because of resource constraint, cost and expertise of surgeon. PMMC flap is the robust flap and it has been described and established since long in covering the both, intra and extra oral defects . With the help of random flap and multiple perforators, PMMC flap can mould into bi-lobed / bi-paddle / folded version which can cover intra-oral defect with covering of external lining. Bi-paddle PMMC flap is highly vascularized, versatile flap with short and easy learning curve and produces satisfactory aesthetic and functional results and should be considered as a first option in a geriatric patient with multiple co-morbidities.</p> Sachin S.

Moreover, EAC exhibit a significant elevation in WBCs and PLT levels when compared to the control group.</p> <p>Many histopathological alterations were observed within the splenic tissue of the EAC group as cellular degeneration of red and white pulps, several necrotic cells, vacuolar degeneration, and notable amyloid deposition. In addition, there is a significant increase in the activity of caspase-3 and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) expressions. On the other hand; treatment of EAC mice with 9-DAAD regularized serum levels of the above-mentioned parameters and also restore the splenic tissue normal histological architecture.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion:</strong> The results indicated that the 9-DAAD possesses a protective activity against EAC induced changes in blood, biochemical parameters and splenic injury. Further studies are warranted to explore its mode of action and safety for medicinal use in cancer therapy.</p> Ehab Tousson, Afaf El-Atrash, Ibrahim El Tantawy El Sayed, Ezar Hafez, Hebat Allah El Basyouny, Ramadan M.
