Stunting is associated with impaired cognitive and motor function. The effect of an education intervention including nutrition, stimulation, sanitation, and hygiene on child growth and cognitive/language/motor development, delivered to impoverished mothers in Uganda, was assessed. In a community-based, open cluster-randomized trial, 511 mother/children dyads aged 6-8 months were enrolled to an intervention (n = 263) or control (n = 248) group. The primary outcome was change in length-for-age z-score at age 20-24 months...

The deep inferior epigastric perforator (DIEP) flap is a workhorse of breast reconstruction. Risks of herniation derive from violation of the rectus abdominis muscle anterior rectus sheath (ARS) and might be reduced by Minimally Invasive Laparoscopic Dissection (MILD) of the deep inferior epigastric vessels. We performed a feasibility study on five anatomical subjects and performed a secondary right breast reconstruction on a 67 year-old woman. A 30° laparoscope was used with laparoscopy ports inset to preserve the flap...

Kyong-Je Woo, Goo-Hyun Mun
BACKGROUND: Various methods have been introduced for estimating deep inferior epigastric artery perforator (DIEP) flap volume based on computed tomography or magnetic resonance angiographic images. However, when radiologic images cannot be obtained, estimations are subjective. The purpose of this study was to develop a prediction model for estimating DIEP flap weight using the pinch test. METHODS: The pinch test was performed at three paraumbilical sites using a skin-fold caliper in 107 consecutive patients who underwent DIEP flap breast reconstruction...

Soft-tissue defects caused by radiation injury are a challenging task for the reconstructive surgeon, due to the extent of the soft-tissue damage and the associated injuries of the local blood vessels and bone tissue. We present the application of the versatile deep inferior epigastric perforator (DIEP) flap for the coverage of an extended lateral thigh soft-tissue defect after the surgical resection of an undifferentiated pleomorphic high-grade sarcoma, neoadjuvant chemotherapy, and adjuvant chemo- and radiotherapy...

BACKGROUND: The IDEAL framework aims at improving the evidence base of available surgical innovations. However, the development of such innovations and collection of evidence is costly. Surgical innovation can provide more value for money if innovations are evaluated at an early stage, where evaluations can inform the decision whether to stop or to further develop an innovation. We illustrate how decision modelling can be readily adopted at the earliest stages (0-1) of the IDEAL framework, using an innovation in bilateral DIEP flap breast reconstruction as an example...

The use of pedicled and free flaps for tissue transfer and coverage has become a common practice in modern plastic surgery. An area that presents considerable challenge for tissue coverage is the groin. Defects in this area are complicated by issues such as prior surgery; scar contracture; extension of the defect beyond the borders of the groin; radiation damage; high probability of infection; and involvement of vital underlying structures, the genitalia, and perineal and perianal area. Therefore, the choice of donor site and flap usage is often difficult...

Background: The most common cancer worldwide in women is breast cancer. The increasing number of cases each year, requires a novel curative approach that can combine oncological treatments and breast reconstruction yielding a pleasing and aesthetic breast that is a definitive and long lasting solution. Thus, the Immediate-DElayed AutoLogous (IDEAL) breast reconstruction principle was created to hold up to the standards of the needs of contemporary women. METHOD: The IDEAL protocol for breast reconstruction was developed in our department in cooperation with our breast surgery unit and describes a two-stage approach that implicates neoadjuvant radio-/ chemotherapy treatment regimes and tumor staging before the mastectomy in order to avoid post-mastectomy radiation...

BACKGROUND: The transverse upper gracilis (TUG) flap is the senior authors' second choice for autologous breast reconstruction when the DIEP flap is not available. It provides durable, pliable tissue with well hidden scars. The main criticism of this flap is the limited volume, donor site complications, short pedicle and vessel mismatch depending on which recipient vessels are used. We described methods of reducing vessel mismatch, complications of venous coupler and refinements to help give a more superior aesthetic outcome...

BACKGROUND: Breast reconstruction is an essential component in the treatment of breast cancer. Postoperative complications after breast reconstruction are common and affect patient satisfaction. Determining independent risk factors using patient characteristics could be advantageous for patient assessment and counseling. METHODS: We retrospectively enrolled 623 consecutive patients who underwent reconstruction with a deep inferior epigastric perforator flap (DIEP), latissimus dorsi flap (LD), lateral thoracodorsal flap (LTDF), or tissue expander with a secondary implant (EXP) in this study...

BACKGROUND: Lipofilling is performed in breast cancer patients to optimize the aesthetic outcome following breast reconstruction after mastectomy. Despite its common usage worldwide, little is known about the interaction of the lipoaspirate and dormant cancer cells. Up to date, no risk factors that increase the risk for cancer recurrence have been established. This study aims to identify risk factors for lipofilling candidates after breast cancer and questions the oncological safety of lipofilling in lymph node positive disease...

Although there are various methods for tracheal reconstruction, such as a simple approximation with suturing and coverage with adjacent soft tissue or muscle, large defects >50% of the tracheal length still present a clinical challenge. Tissue engineering, a recent promising way to possibly resolve this problem, requires a long preparatory period for stem cell seeding on a scaffold and relatively invasive procedures for stem cell harvesting. As an alternative, we used a vascularized myofascial flap for tracheal reconstruction...

Elucidation of the rice genome will not only broaden our understanding of genetic characterization of the agronomic characteristics but also facilitate the rice genetic improvement through marker assisted breeding. However, the genome resources of aromatic rice varieties are largely unexploited. Therefore, the whole genome of two elite aromatic traditional japonica rice landraces in North Vietnam, Tam Xoan Bac Ninh (TXBN), and Tam Xoan Hai Hau (TXHH), was sequenced to identify their genome-wide polymorphisms...

INTRODUCTION: Suction-assisted lipectomy (SAL) has been considered a relative contraindication for autologous breast reconstruction due to reservations about size and integrity of perforator vessels. Such patients are often not considered ideal candidates for breast reconstruction utilizing deep inferior epigastric perforator (DIEP) and superficial inferior epigastric artery (SIEA) flaps. The aim of this article is to describe our experience with these flaps after SAL. METHODS: Retrospectively, patient charts from 2005 to 2015 were analyzed and 9 patients (13 flaps) were identified who received breast reconstruction after prior donor-site SAL...

Mannose phosphotransferase system (Man-PTS) is the main mannose permease in bacteria but it is also a known receptor for subclass IIa bacteriocins (pediocin-like group) as well as subclass IId lactococcin A (LcnA) and lactococcin B (LcnB) (LcnA-like group). Subclass IIa bacteriocins exhibit a strong activity against Listeria spp. but they are not against Lactococcus spp. In contrast, the LcnA-like bacteriocins act only against Lactococcus lactis strains. Garvicin Q (GarQ) is a subclass IId bacteriocin with minor similarity to LcnA-like bacteriocins and a relatively broad antimicrobial spectrum including, among others, Listeria and Lactococcus spp...

BACKGROUND: A key component of modern analgesics is the use of multimodal opioid-sparing analgesia (MOSA). In the past, our analgesic regime after autologous breast reconstruction (ABR) included either NSAID or a selective cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) inhibitor. COX-2 inhibitors are superior to NSAIDs because of the well-known side effects of NSAID treatment (bleeding/gastrointestinal ulcers). However, COX-2 inhibitors have been suggested to increase flap failure rates. We report our experience in using COX-2 inhibitors as part of our post-operative MOSA after ABR using free flaps...

BACKGROUND: The deep inferior epigastric perforator (DIEP) flap, which is a modification of the muscle-sparing free transverse rectus abdominis musculocutaneous (msTRAM) flap, is being more frequently used in an effort to reduce postoperative abdominal morbidity. However, there is no consensus as to which of these flaps is superior. We aimed to compare quantitative measurements of abdominal function obtained with an isokinetic dynamometer after DIEP and msTRAM flap elevation. METHODS: Patients who underwent unilateral single-pedicled DIEP (n = 42) or msTRAM flap (n = 36) breast reconstruction performed by a single surgeon were included in this study...

Palliative care began in Vietnam in 2001, but steady growth in palliative care services and education commenced several years later when partnerships for ongoing training and technical assistance by committed experts were created with the Ministry of Health (MoH), major public hospitals, and medical universities. An empirical analysis of palliative care need by the MoH in 2006 was followed by national palliative care clinical guidelines, initiation of clinical training for physicians and nurses, and revision of opioid prescribing regulations...

Even though DIEP-SIEA flaps or latissimus dorsi musculocutaneous flap are the most frequently used, a wide variety of flaps have been described for autologous breast reconstruction. Concerning the choice of donor-site, the aim is to prevent and to limit the morbidity. That is why the donor-site should be carefully chosen, according to the morphology of the patient. Lumbar artery perforator flap (LAP) is an option for breast reconstruction, but it is not well known and its use is limited. This study summarizes the authors' early experience with free LAP flap for breast reconstruction...
