: The use of tissue sealants has increased among different surgical specialities. Face-lift and rhytidoplasty may cause several complications such as haematoma, ecchymosis, oedema, seroma, skin necrosis, wound dehiscence and wound infection. However, administration of tissue sealants may prevent the occurrence of some complications. We performed a meta-analysis of studies that compared tissue sealant use with controls to evaluate the outcomes. A systematic literature search was performed...

REVIEW

Every year, 1.2 million cancer patients receive radiation therapy in the United States. Late radiation tissue injury occurs in an estimated 5-15% of these patients. Tissue injury can include skin necrosis, which can lead to chronic nonhealing wounds. Despite many treatments available to help heal skin necrosis such as hyperbaric oxygen therapy, no clinical guidelines exist and evidence is lacking. The purpose of this review is to identify and comprehensively summarize studies published to date to evaluate the effectiveness of hyperbaric oxygen therapy for the treatment of radiation-induced skin necrosis...

The venous anatomy of the face was examined in 12 fresh cadavers. Venograms and arteriovenograms were obtained after the injection of contrast medium. In 8 of the 12 cadavers, a large loop was formed by the facial vein, the supratrochlear vein, and the superficial temporal vein, which became the main trunk vein of the face. In 4 of the 12 cadavers, the superior lateral limb of the loop vein was less well developed. The loop vein generally did not accompany the arteries of the face. Cutaneous branches of the loop vein formed a polygonal venous network in the skin, while communicating branches ran toward deep veins...

BACKGROUND: Numerous nipple reconstruction methods have been proposed including the use of local flaps and composite grafts, but most methods have shown a significant loss of projection. We combined a modified CV flap with a composite graft (nipple sharing) to maximize the projection and volume of the new nipple and reduce the size of the contralateral nipple. METHODS: In total, 30 patients underwent nipple reconstruction using a combined method between January 2013 and November 2015...

BACKGROUND: A posterior interosseous artery perforator flap is used for small defects and leaves no functional disturbance at the flap donor site. This report aimed to describe our experience with the transfer of this flap for fingertip defects and the evaluation of postoperative function. METHODS: In total, 11 flaps were used for 13 fingertip reconstructions in 11 patients. Two patients had two finger defects simultaneously covered with one bridge flap, and five flaps were harvested in true perforator flap style...

BACKGROUND: We conducted a retrospective analysis of the clinical outcomes and evaluated the reconstructive strategies in patients who underwent secondary maxillary reconstruction with a vascularized fibula osteomyocutaneous flap (VFOF). METHODS: From May of 2001 to June of 2014, 34 patients who underwent secondary maxillary reconstruction with VFOF, with or without titanium mesh, were reviewed. The patients were divided into two groups of maxillary reconstruction, according to different planning and treatment strategies...

BACKGROUND: Autologous fat grafting is a widely used technique that gives natural results when treating soft tissue deficiencies. However, there is no consensus on which is the best procedure to use, leading to unpredictable results because of fat graft resorption. OBJECTIVES: This study compared four commercial lipotransfer devices by analyzing the behavior of the processed adipose tissue and outcome of the adipose graft in an in vivo model. METHODS: Four different protocols that used manual, power-assisted or water-assisted lipoaspiration and then decantation, centrifugation, or filtration were used on each of eight patients to process lipoaspirate...

REVIEW

BACKGROUND: Rare but serious complications of nipple-sparing mastectomy (NSM) include necrosis of the nipple-areolar complex (NAC) and mastectomy skin flaps. NAC and mastectomy flap delay procedures are novel techniques designed to avoid these complications and may be combined with retroareolar biopsy as a first-stage procedure. We performed a systematic review of the literature to evaluate various techniques for NAC and mastectomy flap delay. METHODS: PubMed and Cochrane databases were searched from January 1975 through April 15, 2016...

REVIEW
Harm Winters, Hanneke J P Tielemans, Philippe N Sprangers, Dietmar J O Ulrich
BACKGROUND: Lymphaticovenular anastomosis (LVA) is a supermicrosurgical procedure that involves the anastomosis of a functional lymphatic channel to a venule. Although peri-operative care might be an important contributor to the success of this technique, evidence about optimal peri-operative care seems limited. This review aims to summarize the peri-operative methods used by authors reporting on LVA. METHODS: A systematic search of the literature was performed according to the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses guidelines...

INTRODUCTION: Different hypotheses have been proposed for the pathophysiology of posterior interosseous nerve (PIN) palsy, namely compression, nerve inflammation, and fascicular constriction. We hypothesized that critical reinterpretation of electrodiagnostic (EDX) studies and MRIs of patients with a diagnosis of PIN palsy could provide insight into the pathophysiology and treatment. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed patients with a diagnosis of nontraumatic PIN palsy and an upper extremity EDX and MRI...

Nicole Paraskeva, Alex Clarke, Rajiv Grover, Stephen Hamilton, Simon Withey, Diana Harcourt
BACKGROUND: PEGASUS is an intervention to facilitate shared decision-making by helping prospective patients consider their expectations of surgery, so that surgeons have a clear understanding of their individual goals. To date, shared decision-making interventions within aesthetic surgery are lacking. The present mixed methods study therefore explored the acceptability of implementing PEGASUS into routine private practice with breast augmentation patients and aesthetic providers. METHOD: Seventeen women presenting for breast augmentation surgery from three practices received the PEGASUS intervention pre-operatively and completed a process evaluation post-operatively...

M Dumont, L Sann, A Gazarian
Bilateral hand transplantation, as a fairly new reconstructive option for amputees, raises major ethical questions. This article, which is based on the reflections arising from the rich experience of Lyon's team in this field, addresses the topic of supporting the patient in his choice for or against this procedure. How should autonomy be understood in this particular setting? The developing field of composite tissue allotransplantation needs to establish a common thinking on this subject. The article emphasises that, even if it is their right to decide, patients have to be carefully supported to help them make the most consolidated choice possible in this challenging procedure...

We report our experience with free tissue transfer in the elderly based on a retrospective review of patients aged ≥70 years who underwent surgery during a 7-year period. A total of 110 free tissue transfers in 104 patients, with a mean age of 78 years (range: 70-92 years), were identified for inclusion. The demographic and operative variables and postoperative medical and surgical complications were analyzed. Sixty-four of the 110 procedures encountered at least one complication. Medical complications were observed in 25 cases and were predominantly pulmonary, whereas surgical complications occurred in 54 cases in addition to one perioperative death...
