Case Reports in Plastic Surgery & Hand Surgery

Harry Whitehouse, Jeffrey C Y Chan, Matthew James
We present a case of spontaneous closed flexor digitorum profundus (FDP) tendon rupture of the fifth finger occurring in the carpal tunnel region (Zone IV) of the hand. A review of literature illustrates that spontaneous rupture of FDP in Zone IV is extremely rare and we wish to highlight this.

Only one case of second ipsilateral autologous reconstruction for the same breast that had previously undergone reconstruction has been reported. Here we present a patient who underwent breast reconstruction twice using free flap from different donor sites, using a buttock after a local recurrence following the previous reconstruction with a lower abdomen.

Management of chronic osteoarticular infection of the hand is a true challenge. Several methods of treatment are described in the literature to eradicate the infection. We present a case in which chronic osteomyelitis of the second metacarpal was treated by induced membrane technique, with successful outcome and complete hand recovery.

Three female patients underwent TMC joint arthrodesis using a vascularized bone graft from the second metacarpal base. Surgical indications were nonunion after failed TMC joint arthrodesis and osteoarthritis and severe osteoporosis. All cases achieved early bone union, and marked postoperative improvement in the VAS and DASH scores.

This case report presents the use of near-infrared fluorescence (NIRF) imaging using indocyanine green (ICG) and its potential for the evaluation of soft tissue viability in a traumatic case. Standard implementation of this novel imaging modality might decrease the number of surgical debridement procedures in complex traumatic wounds.

A 70-year old woman underwent thoracic surgery resulting in rupture of a silicone implant. During re-implantation at a later time an iatrogenic thoracic wall defect was discovered. In order to complete re-implantation the defect was closed using a rotation flap constructed from capsular tissue from the previous silicone implant.

This report shows a multi-compartmental lipoma that occupied a vast area of the hand volar compartment, the distal aspect of the Parona's space and infiltrated the dorsal compartment between the IV and V metacarpal bones. The mass was entirely removed through a dorsal approach, minimizing risks of neurovascular and tendinous lesions.

Acellular Dermal Matrices have become increasing popular in breast reconstruction especially in the last decade. There is a debate on whether Acellular Dermal Matrices increase the risk of complications or not. Common complications include infection, wound dehiscence, necrosis, seroma, haematoma, capsular contracture, extrusion, loss of implant and reconstruction failure. Non-integration is not listed as a typical complication to the use of Acellular Dermal Matrices. We report a case of a completely non-integrated Acellular Dermal Matrix following breast reconstruction in a patient without significant risk factors...

Twenty five-year-old pitcher presented with acute right middle and index finger numbness and coolness. Angiogram showed a 5mm axillary pseudoaneurysm and near complete occlusion of ulnar and common interosseous artery, ulnar side of the palmar arch, and ulnar digital artery. Patient deferred surgery, treatment with tPA and heparin succeeded in reperfusion.

The development of a primary melanoma within the confines of free tissue transfer is a rare occurrence. In this report, we describe the development of a primary melanoma in situ within a full-thickness skin graft overlying a free latissimus dorsi muscle flap used to cover a scalp defect.

Intestinal perforation (IP) is a life-threatening gastroenterological condition requiring urgent surgical care, which may present itself as an uncommon complication following incisional hernia repair surgery, most often because of iatrogenic traumatism occurring during the procedure. However, we report a case where a spontaneous onset can be hypothesised. A 60-years-old patient underwent repair of an abdominal laparocele, through rectus abdominis muscle plasty, 5 years after development of an incisional hernia due to exploratory laparotomy for the treatment of acute appendicitis...

Vascularized composite allotransplantation represents a useful addition to reconstructive options available to the plastic surgeon. Though the procedure provides beneficial functional outcomes, there remain complications, often associated with the immunosuppression necessary to maintain an allograft. We report a case of eponychial fold lesions following successful bilateral upper extremity allotransplantation.

Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) is a rare disease in which Langerhans cells, which are bone marrow-derived antigen-presenting cells, proliferate in single or multiple organs. We successfully treated a patient with unifocal LCH of the mandible with malocclusion due to a severe pathological fracture, using reconstruction with a vascularised free bone.

We present two cases of serratus anterior free fascial flap combined with vascularized scapular bone graft for reconstruction of traumatized dorsal hand and phalangeal bone defects. Composite flaps with single vascular pedicles allowed conservation of severely injured fingers and provided good functional and cosmetic outcomes.

Nanotechnology is defined as the design of products that interact with biological systems on the nanoscopic scale. Creating a controlled nanotexture and understanding the ways in which surface properties impact inflammatory response is of the utmost significance in designing implants that can provide satisfactory outcomes.

We describe a young man who suffered a severe mutilating injury of the hand and forearm while working as a cheesemaker. He underwent a complex reconstruction of his right adominant hand including a heterotopic thumb replantation into the distal radius and combined with an emergency flow-through anterolateral thigh flap.

We have treated two patients who had an Achilles tendon and overlying tissue defect using an anterolateral thigh flap with fascia lata. Postoperatively, skeletal suspension of the affected leg and intra-arterial heparin infusion were performed for seven days. Six weeks postoperatively, the patients could walk again.

While there are no reports regarding dressing-associated iatrogenic skin ulcer as an adverse event of maggot debridement therapy (MDT), MDT is clinically used on patients with critical limb ischaemia with dermal fragility. Herein we report causes and counter measures for a case of iatrogenic skin ulcer induced by MDT dressing.

Severe burn injuries to the hand represent a topic of great concern due to long-term complications such as hypertrofic burn scar and contracture, which may result in loss of function. We present a case of burn scar contracture in the hand of a child undergoing Z-plasty and lipofilling.

Necrotizing fasciitis (NF) of the breast is a rare occurrence that is routinely misdiagnosed as an abscess or cellulitis, resulting in treatment delays. A total mastectomy is required when delays occur. We present a 53-year-old female with breast NF managed with a partial mastectomy and local tissue rearrangement.
