Background: Combining liposuction with abdominoplasties was considered risky during the 1980s and 1990s due to reports of increased complications rates and the belief that liposuction posed a danger to flap circulation. However, the corresponding author's intraoperative observations at that time, that liposuction preserved all but the smallest blood vessels, negated the prevailing opinions that liposuction increased the risk to flap circulation, and in October 1996, liposuction assisted abdominoplasty (LAA) was first performed...

Background: Radiation-associated angiosarcoma (RAAS) of the breast is a rare complication following breast irradiation with high rates of recurrence and death. To improve survival, we have advocated for an extra-radical resection where the entire irradiated skin and subcutaneous tissue is excised. This results in very large chest defects for which we describe our reconstructive experience. Methods: We performed a retrospective review of patients diagnosed with RAAS and treated with extra-radical resection followed by immediate reconstruction between 1999 and 2017...

Minh N Q Huynh, Aneesh Karir, Alexandria Bennett
Background: Despite the fact that carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is the most common entrapment neuropathy, the diagnostic accuracy of clinical screening examinations for CTS is controversial. The scratch collapse test (SCT) is a novel test that may be of diagnostic advantage. The purpose of our study was to determine the diagnostic accuracy of the SCT for CTS. Methods: A literature search was performed using PubMed (1966 to April 2018); Ovid MEDLINE (1966 to April 2018); EMBASE (1988 to April 2018); and Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (The Cochrane Library, to April 2018)...

Background: Three-dimensional (3D) bioprinting of cartilage is a promising new technique. To produce, for example, an auricle with good shape, the printed cartilage needs to be covered with skin that can grow on the surface of the construct. Our primary question was to analyze if an integrated 3D bioprinted cartilage structure is a tissue that can serve as a bed for a full-thickness skin graft. Methods: 3D bioprinted constructs (10 × 10 × 1.2 mm) were printed using nanofibrillated cellulose/alginate bioink mixed with mesenchymal stem cells and adult chondrocytes and implanted subcutaneously in 21 nude mice...

Background: Many types of split-thickness skin graft (STSG) donor-site dressings are available with little consensus from the literature on the optimal dressing type. The purpose of this systematic review was to analyze the most recent outcomes regarding moist and nonmoist dressings for STSG donor sites. Methods: A comprehensive systematic review was conducted across PubMed/MEDLINE, EMBASE, and Cochrane Library databases to search for comparative studies evaluating different STSG donor-site dressings in adult subjects published between 2008 and 2017...

Fingertip replantation is a technical challenge for microsurgeons. For successful fingertip replantation, it is important to monitor the replanted fingertip vascularity for the early detection and revision of vascular compromise. Laser speckle contrast imaging (LSCI) is a camera-based technique that measures the perfusion by illuminating the tissue with a 785-nm-wavelength divergent laser beam. This creates a speckle pattern over the illuminated area. We present a case in which postoperative monitoring of the replanted fingertip microcirculation using LSCI allowed for successful Tamai zone I fingertip replantation...

Objective: To examine the difference between outcomes in the administration of concurrent endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS), septoplasty (SP), and rhinoplasty (RP) and concurrent ESS and SP in 1 single surgical session. Methods: Patients who underwent concurrent ESS and SP from September 2004 to July 2015 were identified. Furthermore, patients among them who underwent functional primary RP were selected. Subjects who had been administered concurrent ESS, SP, and RP (primary RP) were matched for sex, age, sinonasal surgical procedures for treatment of chronic rhinosinusitis with patients underwent concurrent ESS and SP, used as control subjects...

A case of advanced breast carcinoma with large skin invasion that extended from the breast to the axilla and which was reconstructed with a meshed split skin graft for the chest defect and a posterior circumflex humeral artery perforator flap for the axillary area was described. When skin invasion of the breast cancer extends to the axillary area, reconstruction methods of the defect are probably complicated. The purpose of reconstruction is not only to close defects, but also to protect important tissues, such as axillary vessels and the brachial plexus...

Immediate breast reconstruction after mastectomy due to cancer or as a prophylactic treatment is widely preferred to avoid psychosocial distress, poor body image, and diminished sexual well-being. An increasing number of women undergoing breast reconstruction are in childbearing age; however, only limited data are available on the cosmetic outcome of patients undergoing implant-based breast reconstruction with a surgical mesh and subsequent pregnancy. This is a case report of a female patient who underwent unilateral implant-based breast reconstruction with a titanized surgical mesh implant (TiLOOP Bra)...

Background: Forty years ago, a 33-year-old female suffered a 35% total body surface area burn after the car in which she was a passenger caught fire in a rear-end collision. She experienced second- and third-degree burns of her face, head, back, arms, and hands. Methods: After immediate burn resuscitation, the patient underwent approximately 40 reconstructive procedures over the course of the first 17 years after her burns. Results: While finding social situations difficult to endure, the patient developed tools to help her face the public...

Background: Ultrasound in plastic surgery is quickly finding new applications. Ultrasound surveillance may replace ineffective individual risk stratification and chemoprophylaxis for deep venous thromboses. Abdominal penetration can be a catastrophic complication of liposuction. Preoperative screening for fascial defects may reduce risk. Limiting buttock fat injections to the subcutaneous plane is critical for patient safety, but it is difficult to know one's injection plane. Methods: The author's use of diagnostic ultrasound was evaluated from May 2017 to May 2018...

Background: Multidisciplinary cleft care depends on follow-up at specified time points to monitor and address functional or aesthetic concerns that may arise during a child's development. However, loss to follow-up (LTFU) is common and can lead to missed opportunities for therapeutic and surgical intervention. This study explores clinical, demographic, and geographic determinants of LTFU in cleft care. Methods: Medical records were retrospectively evaluated for 558 pediatric patients of a single mid-volume cleft team...

Background: Breast reconstruction with autologous tissue is considered the current state-of-the-art choice following mastectomies, and the deep inferior epigastric perforator (DIEP) flap is often among the favored techniques. Commonly referred to patients as a combination between a tummy tuck and a breast augmentation, it significantly differs by the required expertise and long hospital stays. We present a series attesting to the feasibility and effectiveness of performing this type of reconstruction in an outpatient setting following our recovery protocol...

Acquisition of a secure airway is an essential element of the operative management of maxillofacial trauma. Of the options available, submental intubation is an alternative to tracheostomy. The access should be accomplished via a midline approach rather than lateral through the mylohyoid, an armored endotracheal tube utilized to prevent kinking, and the passage facilitated by use of wound dilators obtained from a percutaneous tracheostomy set.
