BACKGROUND: The ischial region is the site most affected by pressure sores and has the highest recurrence and complication rates compared to other affected sites. We developed a practical and safe pedicled flap for reconstruction of ischial pressure sores based on the rich available perforators from the internal pudendal artery and the surplus of skin at the infragluteal fold. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study was conducted in all patients who underwent ischial pressure ulcer reconstruction using the PIPAP flap between March 2010 and March 2017...

BACKGROUND: Anteromedial thigh flaps are far less clinically appealing than their anterolateral counterparts, and are occasionally considered as an alternative to the anterolateral thigh flap. Herein, we report the study of soft-tissue defects reconstruction in the knee using a distally based anteromedial thigh flap pedicled on the rectus femoris branch of the descending branch of the lateral circumflex femoral artery. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Between July 2008 and September 2016, a distally based anteromedial thigh flap was used to reconstruct soft-tissue defects of the knee in 5 patients (3 males, 2 females; age range at surgery 4-55 years old)...

BACKGROUND: Keloids are a burden for patients due to physical, aesthetic and social consequences. Treatment remains a challenge due to therapy resistance and high recurrence rates. The main goals of treatment are to improve scar appearance and symptoms and patients' quality of life (QoL). METHODS: Two multicentre, randomised controlled open trials that compared 1) intralesional cryotherapy with excision and corticosteroid injections for primary keloids, and 2) intralesional cryotherapy with excision and brachytherapy for therapy resistant keloids...

BACKGROUND: Smoking is considered to be a significant risk factor for the development of postoperative complications after various surgical procedures, mainly by limiting oxygen delivery to tissues. Evidence on the collective impact of smoking in aesthetic procedure outcomes is scarce. The aim of this study is to evaluate the current evidence on the association between smoking and postoperative outcomes in patients who underwent common elective procedures in plastic surgery. METHODS: PubMed and Cochrane bibliographical databases were searched from January 1950 to October 2016 for studies reporting on patients who underwent facelift, abdominoplasty, breast reduction and breast reconstruction and for studies with included data on smoking history of treated patients...

OBJECTIVES: Palatal re-repair aims to improve velar function by retro-positioning the levator veli palatini muscles. The surgery includes extensive dissection, leading to tissue edema and scar formation which may need time to remodel. Together with the change of muscle orientation and tension, it is expected that a period of time is needed to reach the final functional performance. This study attempts to determine how much time is required to reach the optimum performance of the palate after re-repair...

AIM: Closure of the donor site on the index finger after raising a first dorsal metacarpal artery (DMA) flap harvest is challenging. The conventional choice is to use a full-thickness skin graft. However, this procedure is associated with several complications and a second donor site to harvest the skin graft is inevitable. The aim of this study was to design a modified incision to allow harvest of a first DMA flap without skin graft. METHODS: From 2015 to 2016, 18 patients with a soft tissue defect of the thumb had reconstruction of the defect using a first DMA flap...

INTRODUCTION: Little is reported on surgical outcomes of SERI Surgical Scaffold, a bioresorbable silk-derived surgical scaffold, developed to provide soft-tissue support and repair, in implant/expander breast reconstruction. METHODS: A retrospective chart study was conducted of all patients who underwent direct-to-implant reconstruction with a SERI surgical scaffold after skin-sparing mastectomy, recording surgical characteristics, perioperative complications and reoperations...

Long-standing cases of facial paralysis are currently treated with free functional muscle transfer. Several nerves are mentioned in the literature to supply the free muscle transfer. The aim of this study is to compare the split hypoglossal nerve and the cross-face nerve graft to supply the free functional muscle transfer in facial reanimation. Of 94 patients with long-standing, unilateral facial palsy, 49 were treated using the latissimus dorsi muscle supplied by the split hypoglossal nerve, and 45 patients were treated using the latissmus dorsi muscle supplied by healthy contralateral buccal branch of the facial nerve...

As older people increasingly care for their body image and remain active longer, the demand for reduction mammaplasty is increasing in this population. Only a few studies of reduction mammaplasty have specifically focussed on the outcomes in elderly women. We developed a new breast reduction technique: the Liposuction-Assisted Four Pedicle-Based Breast Reduction (LAFPBR) that is especially indicated for elderly patients. The aim of this paper was to describe the LAFPBR technique and to determine whether it could be considered a safer option for elderly patients compared to the superomedial pedicle (SMP) technique...
