INTRODUCTION: Previous authors have immobilized the injured hand or digits following cross finger flaps. PATIENTS AND METHODS: About 3 years ago, the author adopted a protocol of immediate postoperative active and passive mobilization (without a splint) following cross finger flap surgery in industrial workers. The current study is a retrospective audit comparing postoperative complications and time of return back to work following cross-finger flaps in two groups of injured industrial workers: Group I (n=12) had immediate postoperative mobilization; and Group II (n=12) had immobilization till the time of flap division...

Actinic keratosis, leukoplakia, carcinoma in situ, and superficially invasive carcinomas of the lower lip are caused mainly by the cumulative effects of exposure of the vermilion of the lower lip to ultraviolet radiation. Current treatments all have limitations: cryosurgery or electrosurgery is suitable to treat only focal lesions; topical chemotherapy, which is an option for diffuse actinic damage, yields unreliable results; and laser treatment fails to rejuvenate the vermilion. However, "lip shave", which involves full-thickness excision of the damaged vermilion and reconstruction with an advancement labial mucosal flap, will produce a fresh mucosal lining to the vermilion border...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to compare the efficacy of locally available nasolabial and buccal fat pad flaps for increasing postoperative mouth opening in the reconstruction of the defect created after fiberotomy in surgically treated cases of oral submucous fibrosis (OSMF). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Of 32 patients selected for the study, 21 patients underwent closure of the surgical defect using the buccal fat pad (group 1) and 11 patients underwent closure of the surgical defect using a nasolabial flap (group 2)...

Soosan Jacob, Smita Narasimhan, Amar Agarwal, Athiya Agarwal, Saijimol Ai
We describe a technique of small-incision lenticule extraction (SMILE)-assisted sutureless corneal resurfacing with interface tattooing for superficial limbal dermoids. After excision at a plane minimally below surrounding normal cornea and sclera, a corneal tattoo powder is carefully applied within an inked circular outline of the intended corneal margin. Circularity and cosmesis are assessed in natural light with the microscope light off. Fibrin glue-assisted corneal resurfacing is performed with the lenticule...

PURPOSE: Mandibular defects involving the condyle represent a complex reconstructive challenge for restoring proper function of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) because it requires precise bone graft alignment for full restoration of joint function. The use of computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology can aid in accurate reconstruction of mandibular condyle defects with a vascularized free fibula flap without the need for additional adjuncts. The purpose of this study was to analyze clinical and functional outcomes after reconstruction of mandibular condyle defects using only a free fibula graft with the help of virtual surgery techniques...

PURPOSE: This study reviews the outcomes of children undergoing myelomeningocele (MMC) repair in the paediatric neurosurgical department in Cardiff. These procedures are historically performed by paediatric neurosurgeons with occasional support from plastic surgeons for the larger lesions. We reviewed the postoperative outcomes over a 9-year period to assess the efficacy of having a plastic surgeon present at all MMC closures. METHODS: Analysis of a prospectively collected database of all MMC closures performed at University Hospital Wales from April 2009 to August 2017 was used...

BACKGROUND: Patient candidates for breast reconstruction with free deep inferior epigastric perforator flap (DIEP) may present several risk factors for venous thromboembolism (VTE). Risk identification is essential for appropriate VTE prophylaxis measures to be put in place. This study aims to investigate VTE incidence after DIEP flap breast reconstruction and to assess the accuracy of the Caprini Risk Assessment Model (RAM), which is the unique score validated to assess the VTE risk for plastic surgery procedures and identify patients at high VTE risk...

Background: Deep sternal wound infection (DSWI) is a severe complication following cardiac surgery. A retrospective study was implemented to determine the risks and clinical characteristics of DSWI after cardiac operation in the Chinese population. Methods: We analysed 7,944 consecutive patients who underwent cardiac surgery via median sternotomy from January 2002 to December 2016 at our institution. Multiple logistic regression analysis was used to identify risk factors for DSWI...

BACKGROUND: Ewing sarcoma of the scapula is uncommon. Restoration of shoulder function after total scapulectomy is challenging. Extracorporeal irradiation and reimplantation is a well-known method of biological reconstruction in orthopaedic oncology; yet very few reports in the literature describe its specific use in tumors of the scapula. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Ten patients with the diagnosis of Ewing sarcoma of the scapula were surgically treated by total scapulectomy and extracorporeal irradiation and reimplantation of the scapula...

Full-thickness cheek defects represent a difficult challenge for reconstructive surgeons. Multiple techniques have been described, including local, regional, and free flaps. In this report, the reconstruction of a through and through left cheek defect, resulting from a self-inflicted gunshot injury, with a chimeric facial artery free flap is presented. The patient underwent reconstruction with a chimeric full-thickness facial artery free flap, with 9 × 3 cm diameter skin paddle and a 6 × 5 cm myomucosal paddle, was harvested on the contralateral cheek with a 7-cm length of facial pedicle...

OBJECTIVE: Diabetes is associated with microvascular pathology and may predispose patients undergoing microvascular surgery to complications. This study assesses diabetes as a risk factor for complications following free flap surgery of the head and neck. PATIENTS AND METHODS: In this retrospective cohort study, data on free flap surgeries of the head and neck between 2005 and 2014 was collected from the National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (NSQIP) database...

OBJECTIVE: The present study was undertaken to know the anatomical basis of medial sural artery (MSA) and its perforators in Nepalese. METHODS: The popliteal arteries of 16 preserved cadaveric lower limbs were injected with a mixture of red ink and glycerine. The number, location, diameter of perforators; length and intramuscular course of pedicle; the branching pattern of MSA were observed and measured. RESULTS: The mean of 2.2 ± 1.2 perforators (range 0-4) was observed...

Nose is one of the most important aesthetic unit of the face.Management of nasal trauma plays a significant role in the practices of the majority of facial and reconstructive surgeons. Replantation, although technically very challenging, is undoubtedly the procedure of choice following traumatic nasal amputation. Here we present an illustrative case report of the traumatic amputation of a nasal tip that was treated successfully with a paramedian forehead flap and further nasal reconstructive surgery. Use of the forehead flap was performed five hours after the occurrence of trauma and was followed by surgical repair about three weeks later...

BACKGROUND: Due to shortage of local donor tissue and unreliable blood supply, free flaps were the mainstay of treatment for tissue defects in the lower leg and foot region, but it requires a qualified microvascular surgeon. Recently, attention has been paid to reverse superficial sural artery flap (RSSAF) and its modifications as a good alternative to pave the way to simple and friendly techniques. METHODS: Excluding each patient with septic and severely ischemic foot, every patient with tissue defect in distal leg and proximal foot region were studied...

Background: Palate is a complex structure separating oro- and nasopharynx. However, reconstruction of the defects of palate is much simpler because of the versatile mucoperiosteal flaps. Here, we present our experience of palatal mucoperiosteal flap used in different situations. Methods: Fifteen patients of palatal as well as buccal mucosa defects were reconstructed using either free or pedicled mucoperiosteum. Results: All patients recovered well...
