Reconstruction following devastating hand injuries, with amputations of the thumb plus multiple digits, is challenging. Double flap or combined flap transfers may be options in such cases. Between 2012 and 2014, 6 patients underwent hand reconstruction following devastating injuries with amputations of the thumb and multiple digits. Sensate anterolateral thigh free flaps and superficial circumflex iliac artery osteocutaneous flaps were microsurgically fabricated as sequential chimeric flaps. Basic hand function, including pulp-to-palm distance, pinch strength, sensation recovery and modified DASH scores, were evaluated...

INTRODUCTION: With proven oncological safety and improved aesthetic outcomes, the Type IV or "Wise pattern" skin-sparing mastectomy (SSM) is a procedure that is being performed with increasing frequency. Unfortunately, it is also associated with an increased risk of complications. The purpose of this investigation was to determine the complications associated with direct-to-implant and two-step tissue-expander breast reconstruction following Wise pattern SSM. METHODS: Systematic electronic searches were performed using PubMed, MEDLINE, and Embase databases...

The evolution of techniques and materials has made gluteoplasty a safe and reproducible operation with high acceptance among surgeons and patients. Functional aspects should be considered in gluteoplasty but are poorly studied. The sensitivity of the buttocks is fundamental as it represents an erogenous zone and provides protection through sensory stimuli for the prevention of pressure sores and burns. This study aimed to evaluate the sensitivity of the gluteal region in patients undergoing gluteal augmentation with implants...

INTRODUCTION: Facial allotransplantation constitutes a reconstructive option after extensive damage to facial structures. Functional recovery has been reported but remains an issue. CASE REPORT - METHODS: A patient underwent facial allotransplantation after a ballistic injury with extensive facial tissue damage. Speech motor function was sequentially assessed clinically, along with repeated electromyography of lip movements during a follow-up of 3 years. RESULTS: Facial nerve recovery could be demonstrated within the first month, followed by a gradual increase in electromyographic amplitude and decrease in reaction times...

Hard palate closure with a vomer flap at the time of lip repair has been widely adopted. A recent study by Deshpande et al. showed a high rate of failure of the vomer flap and led the authors to abandon the technique. We conducted a retrospective study of vomer flap healing in a consecutive series of cases performed by the senior author (D.O.). The case records of 71 patients who underwent repair of unilateral cleft lip and palate with a vomer flap at the time of lip repair were studied. Vomer flap healing was assessed and documented by the senior author at the time of definitive palate closure, and this was recorded...

BACKGROUND: Studies have suggested that contact between opposing mucosal surfaces in the nasal wall and cavity can be a target of the surgical treatment of migraines. Unfortunately, not enough is known about the role of nasal pathology in the pathogenesis of this condition. The co-existence of further rhinological disorders can be an impediment to defining the cause and effect of anatomical variants. The authors compared the MRI scans of migraine- and non-migraine patients (MPs and NMPs, respectively) to determine the prevalence of such mucosal contact points in order to extrapolate whether there is a significant association with migraines...

BACKGROUND: Submucous cleft palate is a congenital deformity that may present as velopharyngeal insufficiency. The degree of anatomical abnormality varies widely among patients and does not predict severity of symptom. We present our 10-year experience treating submucous cleft palate patients with double opposing z-plasty and explore the effect of age at surgery and compensatory articulation on speech. METHODS: Preoperative assessment included intraoral examination, nasoendoscopy, and perceptual speech evaluation...

AlloDerm RTU(®) and AlloMaxTM are two acellular dermal matrices (ADMs) used in implant-based breast reconstruction. In this study, we examined whether different processing methods for the ADMs lead to a disparity in histologic, clinical, and financial outcomes after breast reconstruction. Thirty patients undergoing implant-based breast reconstruction were randomized into AlloMax or AlloDerm arms (n = 15, each). ADM was placed at the time of immediate reconstruction. Patients were evaluated for complications on postoperative days 7, 14, and 30...

BACKGROUND: A prominent mandibular angle (PMA) is a relatively common condition in Asians, and surgeons typically use the intraoral approach to treat it. However, the approach can have many drawbacks due to the limited operative field and view. The procedures of osteotomy are not easily manipulated, and an exact resection is difficult. In addition, some major complications can easily occur. This article presents a modified osteotomy method for the PMA that avoids these disadvantages and makes the procedure easier to execute...

BACKGROUND: The impact of post-mastectomy radiotherapy (PMRT) on patient-centered outcomes of breast reconstruction remains unclear. This comprehensive review aims to consolidate the available data regarding aesthetic outcomes, patient satisfaction, and the BREAST-Q(©) following breast reconstruction in the setting of PMRT to facilitate the informed consent and shared decision-making process. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A systematic search of the literature published from 2000 to 2016 in the PubMed/MEDLINE database was performed to identify all manuscripts reporting aesthetic outcome, patient satisfaction, or BREAST-Q(©) scores of patients undergoing PMRT and breast reconstruction...

BACKGROUND: Tissue expanders (TEs) can be used to assist primary closure of complicated hernias and large abdominal wall defects. However, there is no consensus regarding the optimal technique, use, or associated risk of TE in abdominal wall reconstruction. METHODS: A systematic search of PubMed and Embase databases was conducted to identify articles reporting abdominal wall reconstruction with TE techniques. English articles published between 1980 and 2016 were included on the basis of the following inclusion criteria: two-stage TE surgical technique, >3 cases, reporting of postoperative complications, hernia recurrence, and patient-based clinical data...

Open fractures are severe, complex, limb-threatening and high-energy injuries, often involving lesions of both bone and soft tissues. Traditionally, treatment has been piecemeal by orthopaedic and plastic surgeons. This study aimed to prospectively investigate whether combining orthopaedic and plastic surgery in treating these injuries is more effective than the conventional orthopaedic care. A prospective multi-centre cohort study was conducted. Differences in the type of approach to severe limb trauma allowed a comparison between combined orthoplastic and traditional exclusively orthopaedic treatment...
