Table 1 Values found at minimum temperature (°C) when the groups treated with low-intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) were compare to the control group. Group 1 is control, group 2 is treated with LIPUS positioned at the center of the flap, and group 3 is treated with LIPUS positioned at the zone corresponding to the epigastric artery, zone 1
