The aim of this study is to verify the advantages of using a meshed biological matrix (U.I.B.M.-Italian Patent No. 283625) compared to the intact one. A prospective double blind randomized clinical trial with 46 cases of immediate breast reconstruction was performed. The utilization of a meshed biological matrix results in less drainage, reduced need for drains after a few days and a very small percentage rate of seromas and complications, if compared with the utilization of an intact biological matrix.

AIM: We herein describe the establishment of the Helsinki Vascularized Composite Allotransplantation (VCA) program and its execution in the first two face transplant cases. METHODS & PATIENTS: The Helsinki VCA program initially required the fulfillment of legal, hospital, financial, and ethical requirements. Thereafter, the assembling of a multidisciplinary team commenced. A team of Plastic, maxillofacial and ENT surgeons comprise the facial VCA team. The protocol involves collaboration with the Solid Organ Transplant (SOT) team, transplant immunology, immunosuppression, microbiology, psychiatric evaluation, well-defined VCA indications and informed consent...

BACKGROUND: Breast cancer-related lymphedema (BCRL) is a feared late complication. Treatment options are lacking at present. Recent studies have suggested that mesenchymal stromal cells can alleviate lymphedema. Herein, we report the results from the first human pilot study with adipose-derived regenerative cells (ADRCs) for treating BCRL with 1 year of follow-up. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We included 10 patients with BCRL. ADRCs were injected directly into the axillary region together with a scar-releasing fat grafting procedure...

PURPOSE: There is controversy regarding the effectiveness of brachial plexus reconstruction in older patients, as outcomes are thought to be poor. The aim of this study is to determine the outcomes of shoulder abduction obtained after nerve reconstruction in patients over the age of 50 years and factors related to success. METHODS: Forty patients over the age of 50 years underwent nerve surgery to improve shoulder function after a traumatic brachial plexus injury...

BACKGROUND: Lymphaticovenular anastomosis (LVA) is generally an effective procedure for breast cancer treatment-related upper extremity lymphedema (UEL). Clinical improvement is, however, limited by the degree of sclerosis of the lymphatic vessels. We have developed a method by which we use dynamic ultrasonography to depict vessels through which lymph can be propelled into the LVA under the power of the patient's natural hand movements. METHODS: We assessed the dynamic-LVA method by comparing clinical details of 15 cases of breast cancer treatment-related lymphedema treated by dynamic LVA and 15 corresponding cases treated by conventional LVA...

BACKGROUND: Breast reduction is one of the most common procedures performed by plastic surgeons. Despite good outcomes and high patient satisfaction, there are little national data on the predictors that lead to complications in this patient population. We accessed a national outcomes database to examine these factors. METHODS: This is a retrospective study examining the National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database from 2006 to 2015. Patients who underwent primary breast reduction were identified...

Full-thickness skin grafts (FTSGs) and flaps from the upper eyelid or cheek can be used for reconstruction of lower eyelid defects, including the anterior lamella. However, the upper eyelid has a limited and insufficient amount of skin, whereas cheek flaps have a restricted arch of rotation. Here we report the procedure and outcomes of a perforator/subcutaneous pedicled propeller flap for reconstruction of lower eyelid defects including the anterior lamella. A retrospective study of 12 patients who underwent treatment for eyelid anterior lamella defects with perforator/subcutaneous pedicled propeller flaps was conducted between March 2015 and June 2017...

INTRODUCTION: Surgeons are often judged based on the cosmetic appearance of any scar after surgery rather than the functional outcome of treatment, especially when considering facial wounds. OBJECTIVE: We performed a systematic review of the literature to determine whether absorbable or non-absorbable suture materials result in different cosmetic outcomes for patients requiring primary closure of facial wounds. METHODS: An extensive systematic review was carried out to identify studies meeting our inclusion criteria...

BACKGROUND: The EuroQol EQ-5D-5L instrument is the most widely used quality of life (QoL) measure in health economic evaluations. It is unclear whether such a generic instrument is valid enough to estimate the benefits of breast reconstruction (BR), given the specific changes observed in QoL after BR. Hence, we aimed to evaluate the validity of the EQ-5D-5L in patients who had undergone postmastectomy BR. METHODS: In a 10-year cross-sectional cohort study, 463 mastectomy patients completed an online survey: 202 patients with autologous-BR (A-BR), 103 with implant-based-BR (I-BR), and 158 without BR (MAS)...

A multidisciplinary team representing 28 professional bodies has updated the guidelines for the management of complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), published by the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) of England, 2018. The author represented the British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons in this process and is an author of the guidelines. This article summarises the updated guidelines and highlights aspects relevant to plastic and reconstructive surgery.

BACKGROUND: This study aimed to investigate the versatility of septocutaneous thoracodorsal artery perforator (TDAP-sc) flaps in various areas in the body and the running pattern of septocutaneous perforators. METHODS: This retrospective cohort study included 20 consecutive patients who underwent reconstruction of an oncological defect with a TDAP-sc flap from May 2014 to January 2018. Fifteen flaps were free, and the remaining five were pedicled. Surgical details and postoperative complications were investigated...

BACKGROUND: A lack of high-level evidence exists on the outcomes of different cleft palate repair techniques. A critical appreciation for the complication rates of common repair techniques is paramount to optimize cleft palate care. METHODS: A literature search was conducted for articles on the measurement of fistula and velopharyngeal insufficiency (VPI) rates following cleft palate repair. Study quality was determined using validated scales. The heterogeneity between studies was evaluated using the I2 statistic...

BACKGROUND: Breast reconstruction with fat grafting is a new alternative to prosthetic implants and flaps for women with breast cancer. In this study, we investigate the efficacy of fat grafting for breast reconstruction in a meta-analysis. METHODS: The study followed the PRISMA and MOOSE guidelines for systematic reviews and meta-analyses. Studies were included if the patients underwent complete breast reconstruction with fat grafting as the only treatment modality...
