BACKGROUND: In the field of Vascularized Composite tissue Allotransplantation (VCA), the surgical design of facial subunit grafts is an evolving concept. The purpose of the present paper is to study the possibilities to divide the historical nose and lips face transplant into several morphological and functional subunit grafts, depending on their respective supply. METHODS: Our study was conducted in 20 adult cadavers. The facial artery and its branches were dissected bilaterally in 16 fresh and 4 embalmed heads...

INTRODUCTION: Vaginal reconstruction and vaginoplasty are indicated in vaginal agenesis, following pelvic tumor resection, trauma and for gender confirmation surgery. Different surgical options have been described when using these techniques. Herein, we present the clinical outcomes and sexual function evaluation using the pedicle transverse colon flap (TCF) for gender confirmation surgery in transgender women. METHODS: This is a retrospective chart review of all transgender women who underwent gender confirmation surgery using the pedicle TCF...

Chul Park, Jung Youl Park
BACKGROUND: The surgical correction of 'microtias with constricted ear features' has remained a challenge due to the variable shape and large volume of the remnant cartilage and skin involved. In order to clarify how this remnant cartilage and skin should be treated, we have reviewed and analyzed cases operated at our Center. METHODS: A total of 167 cases of Microtia with Constricted Ear Features, operated from 1992 to 2014, were included in the study. They were reviewed through medical records and photographs, analysis of surgical methods, and postoperative outcomes...

Woo Shik Jeong, Hyung Hwa Jeong, Soon Man Kwon, Kyung S Koh, Jong Woo Choi
BACKGROUND: The conventional approach during orthognathic surgery for cleft-related deformities has largely focused on restoration of maxilla retrusion, using the maxillary advancement as a standard treatment objective. However, we thought the maxillary vertical shortening and deficient incisor show could be the additional key elements of cleft-related deformities. Although slight vertical lengthening can be obtained with only maxillary advancement, it would not be enough to obtain satisfactory aesthetical results in terms of the anterior facial height...

BACKGROUND: This study evaluates outcomes and complications with endoscopic carpal tunnel release (eCTR) performed with local anesthesia (LOCAL) only versus local anesthesia with sedation (SEDATION). We hypothesize that patient outcomes and satisfaction will be equivalent in both groups irrespective of anesthesia type. METHODS: One hundred fifty-four consecutive patients undergoing eCTR with either LOCAL or SEDATION protocols were prospectively enrolled in a study of satisfaction and outcomes...

BACKGROUND -: Peripheral nerve injuries remain a major clinical concern as they often lead to chronic disability and significant health care expenditures. Despite advancements in microsurgical techniques to enhance nerve repair, biologic approaches are needed to augment nerve regeneration and improve functional outcomes after injury. METHODS -: Presented herein is a review of the current literature on state of the art techniques to enhance functional recovery for patients with nerve injury...

The latissimus dorsi myocutaneous flap (LDMF) is a reliable and frequently used option to bring vascularized skin and soft tissue to improve the stability and aesthetic result in breast reconstruction. Standard techniques with skin paddle inset in a horizontal or oblique fashion preferentially improve anterior projection (when inset at the mastectomy scar) or lower pole and infra-mammary fold (IMF) constriction (when inset into the IMF). Here, we describe a modification for inset of the LDMF that improves both anterior projection and lower pole/IMF constriction, while also allowing the latissimus muscle to fan out and provide complete implant coverage...

BACKGROUND: The objective was to evaluate and compare safety and effectiveness of four different dermal fillers in the treatment of facial lipoatrophy secondary to Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). METHODS: We conducted a clinical trial including 147 patients suffering from HIV-induced lipoatrophy treated with Sculptra® (poly-L-lactic acid), Radiesse® (calcium hydroxylapatite), Aquamid® (polyacrylamide) or autologous fat. Objective and subjective changes were evaluated during a 24-monthfollow-up...

BACKGROUND: Radiation therapy is a mainstay in the treatment of many malignancies, but collateral damage to surrounding tissue, with resultant hypovascularity, fibrosis, and atrophy, can be difficult to reconstruct. Fat grafting has been shown to improve the quality of irradiated skin, but volume retention of the graft is significantly decreased. Deferoxamine (DFO) is a FDA-approved iron-chelating medication for acute iron intoxication and chronic iron overload that has also been shown to increase angiogenesis...

BACKGROUND: Although wound contraction is an essential part of healing, excessive contraction can compromise healing through induction of scarring and fibrosis. This in turn leads to development of wound contractures that limit elasticity and function. Major research efforts have focused on development of novel therapeutic approaches to gain inhibitory control over wound contraction. Despite these efforts, the need for cost-effective, clinically feasible and effective agents to inhibit wound contraction remains...

BACKGROUND: An often neglected part of the lower body lift procedure is the gluteal region. The objective of this study is to classify the massive weight loss (MWL) patients undergoing a body lift procedure and provide a safe, standardized approach for gluteal augmentation. METHODS: A retrospective review of all body lift procedures performed between January 2012 and January 2017 was conducted. Patients undergoing a lower body lift with or without gluteal augmentation were included for analysis...

OBJECTIVES: Improvement of nasal aesthetics via rhinoplasty is a highly sought-after procedure and leads to increased patient confidence. The aim of the study was to provide a quantitative synthesis of existing data regarding the ability of cosmeto-functional rhinoplasty to improve patient satisfaction and quality of life (QoL) measured by the Rhinoplasty Outcomes Evaluation (ROE) scale. METHODS: Electronic databases were searched for studies evaluating QoL following aesthetic rhinoplasty...
