REVIEW

Preaxial polydactyly is a common, often sporadic, congenital anomaly that must be addressed surgically early in life. Ideally, the surgeon seeks to accomplish three goals: construction of a thumb that is adequate in size, preservation of pinch function, and reconstruction of all components in one procedure. Although each case is unique, several classification systems attempt to describe the various types. In this article, the authors discuss the various classification systems, procedures, and outcomes after surgery for pediatric thumb duplication...

REVIEW
Renae D Van Wyhe, Edward S Chamata, Larry H Hollier
Nasal dermoids, encephaloceles, and gliomas are rare congenital lesions that result from improper embryologic development. The differentiation between them and a firm understanding of their pathology is necessary to avoid unnecessary complications. In view of their potential intracranial connection, prompt diagnosis and treatment are paramount. The authors review the embryology, diagnoses, radiologic work-up, surgical management, and complications of these midline craniofacial masses in children.

The care of pediatric patients requires special considerations that are often not addressed in the literature. Relatively straightforward tasks such as clinical evaluation, antibiotic use, splinting, wound closure, and care of simple burns become complicated in the pediatric population for several reasons. The authors seek to demystify some of these topics using the senior author's years of clinical experience treating pediatric patients by giving practical advice and general considerations when treating children...

REVIEW
Tara L Braun, Jeffrey G Trost, William C Pederson
Syndactyly is one of the most common congenital hand anomalies treated by pediatric plastic surgeons. Established principles of syndactyly separation dictate the timing and order of syndactyly release, with the goals of surgery being the creation of an anatomically normal webspace, tension-free closure of soft tissue, and return of function to the fingers. Numerous surgical methods have been described, many of which involve the use of local flaps to reconstruct the commissure and full-thickness skin grafts for coverage of raw areas...

Tissue expansion is a well-established surgical method that has been creatively applied to the management of many congenital and acquired pediatric conditions, including the removal of giant congenital melanocytic nevi and the separation of conjoined twins. Careful preoperative planning and patient follow-up are required to achieve the proper results and minimize complications. Special considerations for pediatric patients are present during each step of the process, from patient selection to postoperative care...

A proper knowledge of noninvasive facial rejuvenation is integral to the practice of a cosmetic surgeon. Noninvasive facial rejuvenation can be divided into patient- versus physician-directed modalities. Patient-directed facial rejuvenation combines the use of facial products such as sunscreen, moisturizers, retinoids, α-hydroxy acids, and various antioxidants to both maintain youthful skin and rejuvenate damaged skin. Physicians may recommend and often prescribe certain products, but patients are in control with this type of facial rejuvenation...

Postoperative scar appearance is often a significant concern among patients, with many seeking advice from their surgeons regarding scar minimization. Numerous products are available that claim to decrease postoperative scar formation and improve wound healing. These products attempt to create an ideal environment for wound healing by targeting the three phases of wound healing: inflammation, proliferation, and remodeling. With that said, preoperative interventions, such as lifestyle modifications and optimization of medical comorbidities, and intraoperative interventions, such as adherence to meticulous operative techniques, are equally important for ideal scarring...

Nonmelanoma skin cancers are the most common skin cancers in the United States and the most common malignancies afflicting the head and neck region. Reconstruction of resulting defects has significant aesthetic and functional implications, and plastic surgeons are frequently consulted for reconstruction. Reconstruction can be accomplished via a multitude of approaches spanning the reconstructive ladder, and the approach should be individualized based upon both patient-related and defect-related factors. Here the authors propose a simplified approach to facial reconstruction broken down by aesthetic region...

A strong foundational knowledge of dermatologic disease is crucial for a successful practice in plastic surgery. A plastic surgeon should be able to identify and appreciate common dermatologic diseases that may require medical and/or surgical evaluation and management. In this article, the authors describe epidermal/dermal, infectious, pigmented, and malignant cutaneous lesions that are commonly encountered in practice. Descriptions include the epidemiology, pathogenesis, clinical course, and management options for each type of lesion...

The timely diagnosis and treatment of dermatologic disease in the pediatric population can be challenging. A basic, yet comprehensive knowledge of common lesions is essential for a successful practice in plastic surgery. In this article, the authors describe vascular, cystic, and pigmented cutaneous lesions that are commonly encountered in the pediatric population. Epidemiology, pathogenesis, clinical course, and management options are discussed for each.

The demand for aesthetic augmentation with soft tissue fillers has greatly increased in recent years and has led to an expansion in the number of products available. Unfortunately, an increase in adverse events has followed. These can be categorized into early, late, and delayed. Early infectious complications generally present as a localized skin infection, cellulitis, or abscess. Fillers can also serve as a focus for chronic infection, which is associated with the development of foreign body granulomas, a late complication...

Alloplastic facial implants have a wide range of uses to achieve the appropriate facial contour. A variety of materials such as metals, polymers, ceramics and synthetic injectable fillers are available to the reconstructive and aesthetic surgeon. Besides choosing the right surgical technique and the adequate material, the surgeon must be prepared to treat complications. Infection is an uncommon but serious complication that can cause displeasing consequences for the patient. There are few references in literature regarding treatment and management of facial implant-related infections...

Orthopedic prosthetic infections are potentially devastating complications. Plastic surgeons are frequently consulted to aid in the management of the soft tissue defects that are created by these infections. A review of the existing literature was performed to identify established treatment methods for soft tissue coverage of orthopedic hardware infections for a variety of anatomic locations. The following treatment guidelines and soft tissue reconstructive options were identified as viable options for the management of exposed or infected orthopedic hardware...

Orthopedic hardware infections are much feared and costly complications that can occur when these devices are implemented both in traumatic cases as well as in joint replacement surgery. Because these infections can lead to great morbidity, it is important to understand their pathophysiology as well as the principles behind their diagnosis and initial treatment. Plastic surgeons are frequently consulted as part of a multidisciplinary team to provide stable soft tissue coverage of the associated defects that result from these infections...
