Oliver Kloeters, Dalibor Vasilic, Pieter Hupkens, Dietmar Ulrich
BACKGROUND: In this study, markers of coagulation and fibrinolysis were assessed during early and delayed microsurgical reconstruction in patients with traumatic defects of their lower legs to analyse whether an imbalance of the hemostasis after trauma might predispose the development of vascular complications. METHODS: The prospective study included 70 patients. In 35 patients, surgery was performed within 72 hours after injury. In 35 other patients, delayed free flap transfer was performed between 14-21 days after trauma...

BACKGROUND: Breast reduction is a procedure with a high rate of patient satisfaction. Many techniques can be used for this type of surgery; patient satisfaction can vary from one technique to another. The main aim of this study was to use Breast-Q for initial evaluation of patient satisfaction after breast reduction by either vertical or inverted-T technique and then determine if the quantity of breast tissue removed had any influence on patient satisfaction. METHODS: Eighty-four out of 288 patients operated on between 2000 and 2013 anonymously completed the post-operative version of Breast-Q Reduction/Mastopexy...

BACKGROUND: Ventral hernia represents a surgical challenge plagued by high morbidity and recurrence rates. Primary closure of challenging hernias is often prohibited by severe lateral retraction and tension of the abdominal wall musculature. Botulinum toxin injections have recently been identified as a potential pre-operative means to counteract abdominal wall tension, reduce hernia size, and facilitate fascial closure during hernia repair. This systematic review and meta-analysis reviews outcomes associated with botulinum toxin injections in the setting of ventral hernia, and demonstrates an opportunity to leverage this mainstream aesthetic product for use in abdominal wall reconstruction...

BACKGROUND: Smoke of cigarettes, and specifically nicotine, has been shown to diminish pedicled transverse rectus abdominis musculocutaneous (TRAM) flap survival. Considering that Notch signalling through its ligand Delta-like 4 (Dll4) functions as anti-angiogenic factor by inhibiting the pro-angiogenic effects of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), it is hypothesised that inhibition of the Notch would promote angiogenesis and increase TRAM flap survival in rats submitted to nicotine...

BACKGROUND: Although free flap is gaining popularity for the reconstruction of diabetic foot ulcers, it is unclear whether free flap reconstruction increases the chances of postoperative independent ambulation. The aim of this study is to evaluate the relationship between free flap success and postoperative ambulation. METHODS: This study reviewed 23 cases of free flap reconstruction for diabetic foot ulcers between January 2007 and March 2014. Free rectus abdominis, latissimus dorsi, and anterolateral thigh flaps were used in ten, eight, and five patients, respectively...

BACKGROUND: The choice of microsurgical anastomotic technique, end-to-end (ETE) or end-to-side (ETS), is a relevant point in free tissue transfer. The decision-making process of choosing ETE or ETS technique depends on several clinical and perioperative factors. This study evaluates the outcomes of microvascular procedures in a large single centre patient series, focusing on ETE vs ETS arterial anastomoses. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between January 2009 and June 2015, 838 patients underwent free flap surgery for reconstruction after trauma, infection, or malignancies...

BACKGROUND: In mandibular reconstruction with vascularised free fibula transfer, there are situations where the neck on the operated site lacks recipient vessels for vascular anastomosis due to previous radiological/surgical interventions. METHODS: The present study aims to clarify the availability of neck vessels on the contralateral side in such situations. Experimental surgery was conducted on 20 fresh cadavers (six males and 14 females). After the left half of the mandible was removed, free vascularised fibula of equivalent length was transferred to fill the defect...

BACKGROUND: Reconstruction of the popliteal fossa using a free flap is challenging. Therefore, to facilitate easier free flap reconstruction of the popliteal fossa, we use a medial sural artery perforator (MSAP) free flap with a medial sural vessel as the recipient vessel, as it provides several advantages based on many reports. METHODS: This report describes the authors' experience and outcomes with this technique. Between October 2010 and January 2015, 10 patients with medium-sized defects in their popliteal fossa underwent MSAP free flap reconstruction using the medial sural vessel as the recipient vessel...

OBJECTIVE: The present study elucidates whether or not preserving fat tissues deeper than the Scarpa's fascia in zone 3 and zone 4 reduces postoperative fluid collection after harvesting the transverse rectus-abdominis muscle (TRAM) flap. METHODS: Thirty-one patients for whom breast reconstruction with free TRAM flaps had been performed were included in the study. Fat tissues deeper than the Scarpa's fascia in zone 3 and zone 4 were addressed in two ways. With 17 patients, these tissues were preserved on the abdominal wall; with 14 patients, these fat tissues were harvested as part of the TRAM flap...

BACKGROUND: Few studies have been published reporting risk factors for flap necrosis after primary palatoplasty in patients with cleft palate. This complication is rare, and the event is a disaster for both the patient and the surgeon. This study was performed to explore the associations between different risk factors and the development of flap necrosis after primary palatoplasty in patients with cleft palate. METHODS: This is a case-control study. A 20 years retrospective analysis (1994-2015) of patients with nonsyndromic cleft palate was identified from medical records and screening day registries)...

OBJECTIVE: Blockages in anastomotic vessels cause complete loss of free tissue transfer and replanted limb. Many studies have been conducted in the last 30 years to solve this problem. There are insufficient studies dealing with the effects of the limited adventitiectomy done before surgery for sympathetic overactivity leading situations. The aim of this experimental study is to reveal the effects of limited adventitiectomy. METHODS: In this study, limited adventitiectomy was performed in a wide area before surgery, and the effect of this practice on the vessel diameter and anastomosis was investigated...
