Desmoid tumors are fibroblastic connective tissue tumors that most commonly develop within the anterior abdominal wall. The etiology of desmoid tumors has not been well defined; however, hereditary, hormonal, traumatic, and surgery-related causes have been implicated. Desmoid tumors are believed to arise from musculoaponeurotic structures. Development in the breast is very rare. Several reports of desmoid tumors arising in the vicinity of the fibrous capsule of a breast implant have been described, but to date, the authors are not aware of any published cases following autologous breast reconstruction...

BACKGROUND: To immediate reconstruct ptosis breasts, we used polyglactin (Vicryl; Ethicon Inc., Somerville, NJ, USA) mesh as an inferolateral sling. However, Vicryl mesh is absorbable and losing function as a supporting structure. We doubt about the stability of the blood supply to the inferior part of the flap when it is in direct contact with inner implant. In this study, we examine the complications and the safety of the skin flap of this absorbable mesh sling (AMS) procedure. METHODS: The outcomes of 80 cases were examined, and the 1-year safety record of 40 cases was assessed...

The treatment of complex wounds is commonplace for plastic surgeons. Standard management is debridement of infected and devitalized tissue and systemic antibiotic therapy. In cases where vital structures are exposed within the wound, coverage is obtained with the use of vascularized tissue using both muscle and fasciocutaneous flaps. The use of nondissolving polymethylmethacrylate and absorbable antibiotic-impregnated beads has been shown to deliver high concentrations of antibiotics with low systemic levels of the same antibiotic...

Full-thickness wounds that have rendered patients candidates for amputation may require techniques that may include a combinatorial approach above traditional standard of care. The purpose of this retrospective study was to evaluate the effectiveness of an innovative approach whereby several therapies were combined to avoid amputation. Patients with full-thickness wounds who were previously recommended for amputation and were treated with the combinatorial approach of muscle flap reconstruction and concentrated bone marrow aspirate, platelet-rich plasma, INTEGRA Wound matrix, vacuum-assisted closure, and split-thickness skin grafts were assessed retrospectively...

BACKGROUND: Radiotherapy in the treatment of prostate cancer is well established. Intestinal complications following radiotherapy are divided into acute and chronic toxicity. Chronic complications like perforation and fistula formation to the rectum are rare and difficult to treat. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In case of chronic radiotherapy complications and particularly chronic fistula formation to the rectum, evidence is low. Therefore, an overview of the available literature of surgical therapy strategies is given...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Prior radiotherapy leads to increased wound complication rates for microsurgical reconstruction of pharyngolaryngeal (PL) defects. Incorporating vastus lateralis muscle together with anterolateral thigh flap (ALT) skin in defect reconstruction is useful in protecting vital structures and reinforcing irradiated neck skin and suture lines. This study shows the utility of the musculocutaneous ALT (MC ALT) in PL reconstruction in previously irradiated patients. METHODS: A single-surgeon, retrospective chart review of all patients with defects of the PL region where an MC ALT was used for reconstruction from February 2014 to May 2016...

REVIEW
Raghavan Vidya, Fahad Mujtaba Iqbal
Acellular dermal matrix has revolutionized implant-based breast reconstruction. Breast reconstruction has evolved from the traditional submuscular to the new prepectoral implant based (also known as muscle-sparing) reconstruction. The new technique is emerging as a highly popular surgery owing to its more minimal approach. We conducted a narrative review to guide prepectoral breast reconstruction, highlighting the technique, the need for appropriate patient selection, and areas for further research. We show that prepectoral breast reconstruction is safe, feasible, and has excellent short-term outcomes (cosmesis and patient satisfaction)...

BACKGROUND: The postoperative occurrence of lymph fistulas in the groin is a complication that should be taken seriously. These fistulas cause an increase in morbidity and can support local and ascending infections. The treatment of this complication ranges from conservative procedures, such as compression dressings and bed rest to operative treatment with detection of the fistulas and ligation, negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) or even muscle flaps. This review provides an overview of current therapeutic modalities...

: Appropriate antithrombotic therapy is critical for successful outcomes in reconstructive microsurgical procedures involving free tissue transfer. The annexin V-6L15 (ANV-6L15) fusion protein was developed as a targeted antithrombotic reagent. Annexin V specifically binds to exposed phosphatidylserine on apoptotic or injured cells, and prevents coagulation and cell adhesion, whereas 6L15 inhibits tissue factor-VIIa pathway within the coagulation cascade. The treatment efficacy of ANV-6L15 on rat island muscle and pedicled abdominal fasciocutaneous flaps following ischemic injury and ischemia-reperfusion injury (IRI) was evaluated...

(no author information available yet)
Dural tears (DT) and the consequent cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) leak are not rare in spine surgeries. CSF leak can be troublesome, leading to pseudomeningocele, cutaneous CSF fistula, and meningitis. Revision surgery is unavoidable in some cases. The reported incidences of DT and CSF leak are different according to the various pathologies. Ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament, revision spine surgery and multi-segment laminectomy have higher risks for DT. Various techniques have been described to manage this complication, such as bed rest, repair with dural substitutes, fibrin glue, gelatin sponge, lumbar drain, muscle flap, etc...

Wounds to the head, neck and extremities have been estimated to account for ~84% of reported combat injuries to military personnel. Volumetric muscle loss (VML), defined as skeletal muscle injuries in which tissue loss results in permanent functional impairment, are common among these injuries. The present standard of care entails the use of muscle flap transfers, which suffer from the need for additional surgery when using autografts or the risk of rejection when cadaveric grafts are used. Tissue engineering (TE) strategies for skeletal muscle repair have been investigated as a means to overcome current therapeutic limitations...

High voltage electrical injury can disrupt the vascular system and lead to extremity amputations. It is important to protect main vessels from progressive burn necrosis in order to salvage a limb. The brachial artery should be totally isolated from the burned area by a muscle flap to prevent vessel disruption. In this study, we report the use of a wrap-around latissimus dorsi muscle flap to protect a skeletonized brachial artery in a high voltage electrical injury in order to salvage the upper extremity and restore function...

Neglected malignant tumors within the orbital region can invade the eyeball, extraocular muscles, and bone substance surrounding the eye. Such patients require orbital exenteration, which may involve extraocular skeletal structures (even exposing paranasal sinuses), resulting in 3-dimensional defects requiring reconstruction. This study presents our experience with anterolateral thigh vastus lateralis (ALT/VL) chimeric free flaps for the reconstruction of extensive orbital exenteration defects involving various paranasal sinuses...
