BACKGROUND: Avulsion of the scalp is a rare but severe trauma and challenging to the reconstructive surgeon. It poses not only physical concussion but also significant persisting psychological distress to the patients. METHODS: Medical records from 5 patients who suffered scalp avulsion were reviewed retrospectively. The following data and methods were assessed: age, number of vessels repaired, method of replantation, vein grafts required, blood transfusion, ischemia time, total operating time, and percentage of scalp survival...

BACKGROUND: The principle reconstructive modality for segmental mandibulectomy defects is the osteocutaneous free fibula flap. Preoperative CT angiography has been recommended to assess the quality of arterial inflow to the flap and donor limb. However, the impact of the venous system on flap viability has not been explored. METHODS: A retrospective review of all patients undergoing free fibula flap mandible reconstruction was performed at a single tertiary cancer center from 2002 to 2015...

BACKGROUND: Total pharyngolaryngoesophagectomy (PLE) is used as a curative treatment for synchronous laryngopharyngeal and thoracic esophageal cancer or for multiple cancers in the cervical and thoracic esophagus. Gastric pull-up is commonly used after PLE, but postoperative complications are common. The present study evaluated these procedures in patients with esophageal cancer. METHODS: Fourteen patients (7 with synchronous pharyngeal and thoracic esophageal cancer, 4 with synchronous cervical and thoracic esophageal cancer, and 3 with cervicothoracic esophageal cancer) underwent reconstructive surgery after PLE involving gastric pull-up combined with free jejunal graft between 2004 and 2015...

BACKGROUND: The impact of preoperative radiotherapy on microvascular reconstructive surgery outcome has been a subject of debate. However, data are conflicting and often dependent on local treatment protocols. We have studied the effects of radiotherapy in a unique, single-center setting where a treatment protocol change was undertaken from pre- to postoperative radiotherapy administration for microsurgical head and neck reconstructions. METHODS: A cohort study was conducted for 200 consecutive head and neck free flap cases, where 100 were operated on before and 100 after the treatment protocol adjustment in 2006...

BACKGROUND: Hepatic artery thrombosis (HAT) is reported in 4%-15% of orthotopic liver transplants. Risk factors include technical error in the anastomosis, vascular anatomic variation, and high microvascular resistance. The aim of this study was to verify the incidence of HAT, early or late, and possible risk factors. METHODS: This was a retrospective study from January 2007 to December 2012 at the State University of Campinas. Variables analyzed were age, sex, cold and warm ischemia times, underlying disease, presence of hepatocellular carcinoma, Model for End-Stage Liver Disease (MELD) score, arterial anatomic variation in the graft, cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection, rejection, biliary complications, retransplantation rate, and survival...

BACKGROUND: The vessel-depleted neck poses a unique challenge to the microvascular surgeon. Using 3D modeling and cadaveric dissection, we describe the approach and advantages of a known but less frequently used recipient vessel, the dorsal scapular artery, during free tissue transfer. METHODS: Three patients with vessel-depleted necks required reconstruction with free tissue transfer. The dorsal scapular artery was used as a recipient vessel. Three-dimensional anatomic models were created and cadaveric dissections were performed to characterize the anatomy...

OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: To compare the effectiveness of massed versus interval training when teaching otolaryngology residents microvascular suturing on a validated microsurgical model. STUDY DESIGN: Otolaryngology residents were placed into interval (n = 7) or massed (n = 7) training groups. The interval group performed three separate 30-minute practice sessions separated by at least 1 week, and the massed group performed a single 90-minute practice session. Both groups viewed a video demonstration and recorded a pretest prior to the first training session...

Microvascular surgical techniques of renal transplant in rats have evolved over the past 5 decades to achieve successful rat renal transplant; these modifications have included surgical techniques to address the anatomic variations in the renal blood vessels and those to reduce ischemic and operation durations. Here, we review the surgical techniques of renal transplant in rats and evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of individual techniques of vascular and ureteric anastomoses. For this review, we performed a systematic literature search using relevant medical subject heading terms and included appropriate publications in the review...

BACKGROUND: Photochemical tissue bonding (PTB) is a sutureless, light-activated technique that produces a watertight, microvascular repair with minimal inflammation compared to standard microsurgery. However, it is practically limited by the need for a clinically viable luminal support system. The aim of this study was to evaluate a hollow biocompatible stent to provide adequate luminal support to facilitate vascular anastomosis using the PTB technique. METHODS: Forty rats underwent unilateral femoral artery transection...

Several methods can be used for identifying tissues for transfer in donor-site-depleted patients. A fillet flap can be temporarily stored in other parts of the body and transferred back to the site of tissue defect, including covering the amputated stump of the lower extremity. Human arm transplant is rare and has some unique concerns for the surgery and postsurgical treatment. Cosmetics of the narrow neck of transferred second toes can be improved with insertion of a flap. Lymphedema of the breast after cancer treatment can be diagnosed with several currently available imaging techniques and treated surgically with lymphaticovenous anastomosis...

INTRODUCTION: The deep inferior epigastric perforator (DIEP) flap is a reliable and reproducible technique for autologous microsurgical breast reconstruction. Several recipient vessels sites for microvascular anastomosis have been described such as the internal thoracic vessels, the thoracodorsal vessels, and the circumflex scapular vessels. Nonetheless, the choice of the recipient site depends mainly on individual operator's experience and preferences, and currently the best recipient vessel site is under debate...
