Innovation is vital for progress in any industry. Evolving technology, paired with human ingenuity, brings ideas for prototypes and business models. Many physicians conceptualize platforms to serve their patients; however, many struggle and ultimately fail to bring their product or service to market. Financing is often the limiting factor. Studies have proven venture capital (VC) funding to be a pivotal source for helping a business survive in its early stages. Plastic surgeons can benefit from learning how to seek out VC funding...

Cost allocation for health care professionals can be an enigma within the health care system. Activity-based costing (ABC) is an accounting tool that allocates costs incurred through a company's practice of providing goods and services to the consumer. ABC can provide insight into inefficiencies across the supply chain and unlock excess capacity. This, in turn, can drive services provided toward generating more value for the hospital system. ABC can be tailored to focus upon a unit of measurement that holds value as it pertains to production...

The nonprofit sector is a vibrant, dynamic, and expanding portion of the United States' economy. Its growth over the past two decades has opened up many avenues for entrepreneurs wishing to create corporations that are community- and need-driven, particularly in the health services industry. The fertility of this sector has not been maximized by physicians in particular due to the tortuous path of nonprofit incorporation and accreditation. This article focuses on reviewing the structure of nonprofits and streamlining the establishment process...

REVIEW
Bradley S Eisemann, Ryan D Wagner, Edward M Reece
Despite incredible advances in medical innovation and education, many students finish medical school, and physicians finish residency, without sound business acumen regarding the financial realities of the modern profession. The curriculum in medical schools and residency programs too often neglects teaching the business of medicine. This overview addresses how physicians can utilize effective negotiation strategies to help develop a medical practice or add value to an existing practice or institution. The authors applied the six foundations of effective negotiating, detailed by Richard Shell in his Bargaining for Advantage , to the medical field to demonstrate the processes involved in effective negotiating...

Plastic surgery has origins that date back to 3,000 BC and although some devices and techniques have withstood the test of time, the field has made much advancement through the use of modern day technology and innovation. The combination of the two has led to an array of advanced products we use in our offices and operating rooms on a daily basis. These products may be used by the surgeon or the patient, may be small scale, or sold en masse. The surgeon stands in a position of power, able to guide the progress of the field as a whole, through new product development...

While medical professionals are superbly trained in treating patients, they are not often trained in quality improvement principles. In this article, the authors present a framework for strategy assessment commonly used in the business sector to identify areas for improvement and measure the improvement of interventions. This framework can be adapted to the medical field and used to improve the delivery of health care at a systems level.

REVIEW
Maurice Y Nahabedian
Diastasis recti is a relatively common condition in which there is a midline abdominal bulge that can affect a variety of individuals. The etiology and diagnosis is well understood and optimal management depends on the degree of severity. Patients at high risk for diastasis recti include multiparous women, obese patients, and those with multiple previous operations. Diagnosis includes clinical examination and assessment of symptoms. Physical characteristics include a midline abdominal bulge without a fascial defect...

#14
REVIEW
Sahil K Kapur, Charles E Butler
Lateral abdominal wall defects, while rare, present a more challenging problem than commonly encountered ventral defects due to the complexity of the anatomy, physiologic forces, and impact of muscle denervation. The lateral abdominal wall encompasses a large surface area ranging from the costal margin superiorly to the iliac crest inferiorly and from the linea semilunaris anteriorly to the paraspinous musculature posteriorly. The ratio of muscle to fascia/aponeurosis is much higher, which makes repair through muscle tissue versus fascia less secure...

#15
REVIEW
Margaret S Roubaud, Donald P Baumann
Due to the abundant and lax tissue of the abdominal wall, most ventral trunk defects are amenable to local soft tissue closure. However, when abdominal defects are accompanied by a lack of soft tissue, the surgeon faces a more complex subset of reconstructions. Three important principles guide the reconstruction of these wounds: timing of closure, careful assessment of the true extent of the wound, and the components of the defect. This article focuses on these three guiding principles and suggests the authors' preferred technique for these difficult defects...

REVIEW
Alexander F Mericli
Management of the abdominal catastrophe requires a multidisciplinary approach. The plastic surgeon is a key member of the surgical team assisting in the creation of a durable, functional anatomic abdominal wall reconstruction. Plastic surgeons must be familiar with the concepts and pathophysiology related to the open abdomen, techniques for temporary abdominal closure, and when such techniques are appropriate to implement. In this article, the authors provide a review of the open abdomen concept, which practicing plastic surgeons and trainees may find helpful if faced with this clinical scenario...

#17
REVIEW
Irfan A Rhemtulla, John P Fischer
Rives and Stoppa described the sublay technique of hernia repair more than half a century ago, but it took almost three decades to become truly appreciated and even longer for its full clinical potential and benefits to be realized. Modifications to the original operation have significantly improved surgical approaches, postsurgical outcomes, and quality of life. The retromuscular approach requires technical expertise and a firm grasp of the anatomy. With constant substitution of the terms sublay, retrorectus, retromuscular, preperitoneal, and Rives-Stoppa throughout the literature, the nuances need to be distinguished to appreciate the surgical planes encountered during the operation...

#18
REVIEW
Stefanos Boukovalas, Geoffrey Sisk, Jesse C Selber
Abdominal wall reconstruction has undergone substantial evolution over the last few decades. The optimal method of repair should be tailored to each patient's unique condition; however, a general approach that integrates four major factors can be applied as a conceptual framework to most clinical scenarios. Major factors to be considered include selection of mesh material, mesh inset position and technique, selective component separation, and management of soft tissue. These topics are inextricably intertwined in the sense that each can have specific implications, and in some cases, a determinative impact on the other decisions...
