Objective: Microsurgical education is an integral aspect of plastic surgery training. Like most traditional surgical education models, microsurgical skills are taught on an apprenticeship model. This study aims at evaluating microsurgery skill acquisition within an integrated plastic surgery residency using electromagnetic hand-motion analysis and a global rating scale. Methods: This is a cross-sectional study of an integrated plastic surgery residency program. Participants performed microsurgical arterial anastomoses on cryopreserved rat aortas...

Objective: During 2-stage breast reconstruction in patients with unilateral breast cancer, we sometimes experience cases in which the contralateral breast volume changes greatly. However, few studies have examined volumetric changes in the contralateral breast during 2-stage breast reconstruction. Methods: Changes in contralateral breast volume between the first and second operations were examined in patients who underwent 2-stage unilateral breast reconstruction between February 2013 and August 2016 (123 patients aged 49...

Objective: Immediate flap reconstruction following mastectomy in patients who may require adjuvant radiation therapy can be controversial. However, exposure of vital structure or defects too large for primary closure may necessitate immediate utilization of flaps. In this setting, both functional and cosmetic outcomes must be considered. Methods: We describe a case in which the patient required a wide excision of the axillary skin and a partial mastectomy, with a resulting large axillary and lateral breast skin defect...

Ivan E Rodriguez, Becky B Trinh, Frederic W-B Deleyiannis
Objective: The present report describes an alternative technique of using a flow- through, double-paddle, fibular, osteocutaneous free flap based on one perforator from the peroneal system and one perforator from the anterior tibial system for a through-and-through mandibular defect. Methods: The patient was a 65-year-old man who underwent a composite resection of the floor of the mouth, mandible, and chin pad due to recurrent oral cavity squamous cell carcinoma. The fibula was harvested with one posterior-lateral septal perforator from the peroneal system and with a second skin perforator from the anterior tibial system to perfuse a 15 × 14 cm skin island...

Objective: The descending genicular artery provides the dominant pedicle for the medial femoral condyle and medial femoral trochlear free flaps. Variations of the flap include using a skin paddle for monitoring, a vastus medialis muscle component, and the medial superior geniculate artery for the pedicle. We present a case of a 49-year-old man with a distal tibial fracture from a motor vehicle accident complicated by chronic osteomyelitis, poor soft tissue envelope, and tibial nonunion. Methods: The composite lower extremity defect was reconstructed with a chimeric myo-osseous variant of the medial femoral condyle free flap since no perforator was available to the skin and there was a large amount of dead space...

Objective: The objective of this case report is to provide an example of the repair of a complete unilateral cleft lip using a modification of the classic Z-plasty. Methods: A Z-plasty for cleft lip is described that does not depend on measurements and formulas. The tissue available on the lateral lip "unit" determines the limb length of the Z: from cupid's bow to the highest point of "good" lip skin. This length is then transposed to the medial side, scribing an arc from both cupid's bows...

Introduction: Meshed split-thickness skin grafting represents a rapid and effective technique for surgical wound closure. Factors such as ongoing inflammation, microbial colonization, and a poorly vascularized wound bed increase the rate of skin autograft failure up to 33%. Because of the inherent angiogenic, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and antifibrotic properties of human placental membranes, the complementary use of human placental membranes may promote graft survival and improve success rate for complete ulcer resolution...

Introduction: New options are needed to improve wound healing while preventing excessive scar formation. Temporary primary dressings are important options in topical wound management that allow the natural healing process. Methods: We evaluated a novel primary dressing consisting of a biosynthetic, variable porosity, matrix-containing gelatin and Aloe Vera extract and a derivative dressing coated with the anti-scarring agent salinomycin for their ability to promote cell growth, reduce myofibroblast formation, and regulate cytokine production...

Introduction: New treatments that promote wound healing while preventing scar formation are needed. One option in topical wound healing is the use of temporary dressings that allow the natural healing process with minimal scar formation. Methods: We evaluated the temporary wound dressings PermeaDerm C, and a PermeaDerm C derivative coated with the anti-scarring agent, salinomycin (PermeaDerm D) in a pig model of wound healing to show the efficacy of these wound dressings in vivo. Results: Porcine fibroblasts grow well in the presence of PermeaDerm C or PermeaDerm A, and salinomycin reduces excessive myofibroblast formation in porcine fibroblasts in vitro...

Objective: Infantile digital fibromatosis is a rare benign childhood tumor, infrequently cited in the literature. Hallmarks include nodular growths exclusive to fingers and toes and the presence of eosinophilic cytoplasmic inclusions on histology. This article aims to exemplify diagnoses of infantile digital fibromatosis and possible treatment options. Methods: A computerized English literature search was performed in the PubMed/MEDLINE database using MeSH headings "infantile," "juvenile," "digital," and "fibromatosis...

Objective: The advances in surgical approaches for a pyloromyotomy have all focused on creating smaller incisions from a right upper quadrant now to a laparoscopic umbilical incision. A key assumption is that the final scar retains the size of the original incision as the child matures. Our case reports on a family with several members, now adults, with the same surgery and same surgeon who had the right upper quadrant incision as infants to elucidate the extent of how infantile scars grow over time, significantly exceeding the original incision...

Objective: Hyalomatrix, a matrix that consists of esterified hyaluronic acid, covered with a removable, semipermeable silicone top layer, was used to generate granulation tissue in a series of 12 serious, surgical wounds of different etiologies. Methods: Many defects showed exposed muscle, tendons, and/or bone. After thorough debridement, the matrix was applied, in a number of cases, combined with negative pressure wound therapy. Results: All wounds developed granulation tissue in and on top of the matrix. Nine wounds were then closed with a split skin autograft...
