BACKGROUND: Several therapy options exist for male-to-female (MTF) transgenders desiring sex reassignment. Surgery includes numerous different procedures. Of those, vaginoplasty is predominant and aims at providing attractive esthetics and fully functional genitals. This study aimed to present the surgical results of our modified combined vaginoplasty technique in a consecutive patient cohort. METHODS: We included 40 MTF transgender patients who underwent a two-stage sex reassignment surgery (SRS) in an observational prospective study between September 2012 and January 2014...

INTRODUCTION: Sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) is widely used as a key investigatory tool for cutaneous melanoma, with results incorporated into the latest AJCC staging guidelines. We present the results of our extended follow-up of sentinel lymph node biopsy for melanoma over a sixteen-year period. METHODS: Data were collected prospectively from June 1998 to December 2014 from a single tertiary skin cancer referral centre. Chi-squared analysis was used to analyse patient demographics and primary tumour pathology...

INTRODUCTION: This study demonstrates the use of a modified free innervated DRAP flap utilizing the supermicrosurgery technique for fingertip reconstruction. MATERIALS AND METHODS: From January 2010 to February 2014, 20 cases of fingertip reconstruction were performed using a short pedicle mini innervated transverse DRAP flap. The patients demographics, the mechanism of injury, the defect size and anatomical location, the source of pedicle vessels, the recipient vessels, the nerve branch used for innervation, the follow-up and sensation outcomes are reported...

BACKGROUND: Sunken upper eyelid is a commonly found deformity among Asians, mostly due to the aging process and excessive orbital fat removal during oriental blepharoplasty procedures. This deformity is frequently accompanied by multiple, poorly defined upper eyelid folds and blepharoptosis. To date, autologous fat graft has been the treatment of choice for this group of patients. However, accurate placement of the graft in the orbital fat is quite challenging, and it can result in contour irregularities when injected into the preseptal plane...

BACKGROUND: Disfigurement of the face caused by postburn scars, resected congenital nevi and vascular malformations has both functional and psychological consequences. Ideal reconstruction of the facial components requires producing not only function but also the better appearance of the face. The skin of the neck, supraclavicular or cervicothoracic regions are the most commonly used and the most likely source of skin for facial reconstruction in those techniques which prefabrications with tissue expansion are used...

BACKGROUND: The proximal ends of internal mammary (IM) vessels are now the most common recipient vessels for breast reconstruction. On the other hand, bilateral deep inferior epigastric artery perforator (DIEP) flaps are often needed according to the territory and the volume required for reconstruction. The usefulness of retrograde IM vessels as second recipients has recently been reported, but there are very few quantitative studies on the hydrodynamics of the retrograde IM vessels. Because the flow is dependent on the pressure differential, the blood pressures of the antegrade IM artery (AIMA), antegrade IM vein (AIMV), retrograde IM artery (RIMA), retrograde IM vein (RIMV), and recirculated intraflap vein (FV) were investigated to solve this question and to confirm the reliability and usefulness of the retrograde IM vessels...

REVIEW
Graeme E Glass, George R F Murphy, Jagdeep Nanchahal
BACKGROUND: Negative-pressure wound therapy is a ubiquitous wound management resource. The influence of NPWT on the bacterial bioburden of the subjacent wound remains unclear. We sought to examine the evidence. DATASOURCES: MEDLINE, Embase, PubMed, the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews and the Cochrane Controlled Trials Register were searched for articles quantitatively evaluating bacterial load under NPWT. RESULTS: Twenty-four studies met the inclusion criteria including 4 randomised controlled trials, 8 clinical series and 12 experimental studies...

INTRODUCTION: Options for breast reconstructions enclose autologous tissue transfers or implants. Fat grafting is gaining more interest in this specific field of breast surgery. This study concentrates on the technique and aesthetic results of breast reconstruction with fat grafts combined with implants, in women who have undergone total mastectomy. METHODS: Breast reconstructions (n = 23) was performed using a protocol of intratissular expansion with serial deflation-lipofilling...

PURPOSE: Polydactyly is the most common congenital anomaly of the hand. It may occur as a separate event or as part of a syndrome, with preaxial polydactyly of the hand (or thumb duplication) being the most common among Caucasians. The present study analyzed the surgical results and the residual postoperative deformities of patients with thumb duplication. METHODS: Thirty-one patients with duplicated thumbs were surgically treated from January 2002 to April 2008 and 19 of them, who had returned during the late postoperative period, were evaluated...

INTRODUCTION: We performed a comprehensive analysis of the operative experience of UK Plastic Surgery Trainees using the web-based eLogbook. METHODS: An analysis of data recorded prospectively by Plastic Surgery Registrars 2010-2014 in eLogbook. RESULTS: The eLogbook data of 336 Specialty Registrars entered from 2010 to 2014 was analysed. Over the six-year training programme, trainees participated in a mean of 2117 procedures and performed a mean of 1571 procedures with or without supervision...

BACKGROUND: Patients who undergo obesity surgery often require body contouring procedures to eliminate excess skin. Recent studies suggest that body contouring surgery may provide psychological benefits to patients after obesity surgery. However, it remains unclear how body contouring may affect weight loss maintenance after obesity surgery. METHODS: This is a retrospective review of patients who underwent obesity surgery with or without body contouring at a single institution from 2000 to 2005...

BACKGROUND: This study aimed to describe the technique and report our experience with the reconstruction of combined proximal thumb amputations at the metacarpal base level and index finger amputation at the metacarpal level with pollicization and bilateral double toe composite transfer. METHODS: The technique consists of pollicization of the remnant index ray. Then a contralateral composite medial great toe pulp and vascularized second toe proximal interphalangeal joint flap are harvested to reconstruct the metacarpophalangeal joint of the thumb...

BACKGROUND: There is great diversity in reported post-operative outcomes for otoplasty, with the incidence of haematoma or infection ranging from 0% to 15.6% and 0%-10%, respectively. With such variability, it is difficult to determine an overall 'average' incidence of common post-operative complications. METHODS: A systematic review of the most relevant medical databases was conducted for studies available in English published between January 1, 2000, and December 31, 2015...

BACKGROUND: Approximately one-third of women diagnosed with breast cancer undergo mastectomy with subsequent implant-based or autogenous tissue-based reconstruction. Potential complications include infection, capsular contracture, and leak or rupture of implants with necessity for explantation. Skin rashes are infrequently described complications of patients who undergo mastectomy with or without reconstruction. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of breast cancer patients referred to the Dermatology Service for diagnosis and management of a rash post-mastectomy and expander or implant placement or transverse rectus abdominis myocutaneous (TRAM) flap reconstruction was performed...
