Title:
Sticky platelet syndrome as a possible cause for free flap failure--a case report. 
Abstract:
We report a case of a patient who developed clinical symptoms of sticky platelet syndrome (SPS) during free microvascular flap transplantation, following resection of an oral tumor. Multiple arterial thromboses of two free tissue transfers occurred as a probable result of SPS. Diagnosis and treatment of the various forms of SPS are described.
