Rodger H Brown, Safa E Sharabi, Katarzyna E Kania, Larry H Hollier, Shayan A Izaddoost
BACKGROUND: The pectoralis major is a versatile flap used as an advancement or turnover flap for sternal wound treatment. The advancement flap provides suboptimal inferior sternal coverage and poorly fills mediastinal dead space. The turnover flap covers the inferior sternum and fills dead space but requires disinsertion of the muscle from the humerus, resulting in functional loss and cosmetic deformity. METHODS: The authors describe a new technique of splitting the pectoralis muscle along its fibers, using the superior portion as an advancement flap and the inferior portion as a turnover flap...

History In 2004, this woman received a diagnosis of invasive mammillary carcinoma, tubular variant, strongly positive for estrogen and progesterone receptors. Her lesion was found at screening mammography performed at an outside institution when she was 59 years old. She underwent partial mastectomy, with partial axillary node dissection and sentinel node mapping. A 0.6 × 0.5 cm Nottingham grade 1 infiltrating ductal carcinoma was removed from the right upper outer quadrant, margins were free of tumor, and there was no angiolymphatic invasion...

Kyeong-Tae Lee, Goo-Hyun Mun
BACKGROUND: The current diversity of the available acellular dermal matrix (ADM) materials for implant-based breast reconstruction raises the issue of whether there are any differences in postoperative outcomes according to the kind of ADM used. The present meta-analysis aimed to investigate whether choice of ADM products can affect outcomes. METHODS: Studies that used multiple kinds of ADM products for implant-based breast reconstruction and compared outcomes between them were searched...

PURPOSE: Controversy exists regarding complications associated with the use of acellular dermal matrix (ADM). This likely stems from the heterogeneous and unmatched patient characteristics in study groups. The purpose of this study was to analyze complications in a matched cohort to identify whether ADM use increased postoperative complications of the first-stage immediate expander-implant breast reconstructions. METHODS: A retrospective matched-cohort study was performed...

Guillermo Vázquez
This paper presents patients satisfaction using anatomical polyurethane breast implants. We performed surgery on 525 patients, 370 of which were primary and 155 were secondary to various causes such as capsular contracture, ruptured implants, volume changes, and incorrect positioning of the implant. The advantages of silicone polyurethane covers shown high level of patient satisfaction, low incidence of capsular contracture, and absence of implant rotation, and late seroma.

Breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BI-ALCL) is a distinct type of T-cell lymphoma arising around breast implants. The United States FDA recently updated the 2011 safety communication, warning that women with breast implants may have a very low risk of developing ALCL adjacent to a breast implant. According to the World Health Organization, BI-LCL is not a breast cancer or cancer of the breast tissue; it is a lymphoma, a cancer of immune cells. BI-ALCL is highly curable in the majority of patients...

BACKGROUND: Transabdominal Preperitoneal (TAPP) and Lichtenstein operation are established methods for inguinal hernia repair in clinical practice. Meta-analyses of randomized controlled studies, comparing those two methods for repair of primary inguinal hernia, are still missing. In this study, a systematic review and meta-analysis of published randomized controlled trials was performed to compare early and long term outcomes of the two methods. METHODS: A literature search was carried out to identify randomized controlled trials, which compared TAPP and Lichtenstein repair for primary inguinal hernia...

BACKGROUND: An increasing number of patients have large or complex abdominal wall defects. Component separation technique (CST) is a very effective method for reconstructing complex midline abdominal wall defects in a manner that restores innervated muscle function without excessive tension. Our goal is to show our results by a modified CST for treating large ventral hernias. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 351 patients with complex ventral hernias have been treated over a 10-year period...

INTRODUCTION: Different techniques have been reported for the exploration and repair of femoral artery (FA) in patients who undergo minimally invasive cardiac surgery (MICS) and endovascular aortic surgery. We used a modified approach alternative to the conventional technique (group CT) since May 2013, which specifies a shorter groin incision and diamond shaped hemostatic purse sutures for arteriotomy closure without the requirement of cross-clamping (group PT) and evaluated early outcomes and the complication profiles of the two techniques for femoral access...

AIM: extra-anatomic bypass (EAB) remains a viable alternative for lower limbs revascularization if aorto-bifemoral bypass and endovascular therapy are contraindicated. Among EAB, periprosthetic seroma (PS) occurs in about 4% of cases. Diagnostic and therapeutic management, as well as standardized treatment paradigm, are still not well defined. The aim of this study is to report 5 PS cases in EAB and to review literature about similar cases. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed EAB performed during the period 2002-2015...

Background: Seroma is the most common complication of abdominoplasty. Certain modifications to abdominoplasty may reduce the risk of seroma. Objectives: The authors evaluated the incidence of seroma for 3 abdominoplasty techniques: preservation of Scarpa's fascia, placement of progressive tension (or quilting) sutures, and application of fibrin glue. Methods: In this systematic review and meta-analysis, the Cochrane Library, MEDLINE, Embase, and the International Clinical Trials Registry Platform (World Health Organization) were searched to identify studies of patients who underwent abdominoplasty with seroma as a potential "outcome...

BACKGROUND: Perigraft hygromas or seromas are an unusual finding and/or complication after open aortic repair. CASE REPORT: We present a case of an 82 year-old man with a previous urgent aortic bifurcated graft for abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) rupture. He received several treatments due to abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS), requiring a Bogota Bag and colostomy derivation. He was finally discharged home and lost on follow-up. Eight years after this procedure he presented to the urgency department with an abdominal mass and pain...

BACKGROUND: The pig is commonly used as a preclinical model for ventral hernia repair. However, no study has verified that an unrepaired surgically induced hernia (control) in the pig does not heal spontaneously but rather develops a persistent hernia. Without such verification in any given model, one cannot draw conclusions on the efficacy of the repair technique investigated. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Three surgically induced hernia models with increasing severity were created in eight pigs...

BACKGROUND: Acetabular fractures are quite challenging injuries for the orthopedic surgeon because of their low incidence and their deep and complex anatomy. The objective of this study was to evaluate surgeon-independent parameters that might influence radiographic outcome and early complication rates of high-energy acetabular fractures treated by open reduction and internal fixation via the Kocher-Langenbeck approach, the golden standard for posterior access. METHODS: One hundred sixty-seven consecutive patients (111 males and 56 females) with a mean age of 41...
