BACKGROUND: Both lymph nodes (LNs) and lymphatic channels from primary sites to regional LNs are critical for initiation of adaptive immunity. However, as LNs are common metastatic sites in skin cancers, LN biopsies or dissections are frequently performed. In addition, reconstructive skin flaps after tumor resection may damage lymphatic flow from primary sites to regional LNs. OBJECTIVE: This study was designed to investigate the effect on tumor progression by such surgeries...

The medial canthus represents one of the most challenging regions of the face to reconstruct due to the anatomical structures present, the concavity of the area, and the differences in skin texture. We present a case series of 11 patients whose defects were reconstructed with a single V-Y island pedicle flap running along the nasofacial sulcus. Our single-stage flap which modified and simplified a previously described technique achieves similar cosmetic and postoperative outcomes along with a high level of patient satisfaction in an area which can be reconstructed in a variety of ways, often with suboptimal results...

Congenital auricular deformities may be either deformational or malformational. Malformational anomalies present with a skin or cartilage shortage. Two cases with congenital cleft earlobe were presented. A new surgical technique using a two-layered repair with front and back flaps were introduced. She waited to begin wearing earrings until six months after the surgery to prevent possible scar contracture. The patients were followed up for a period ranging from 3 to 14 months. The earlobe volume deficiency was replaced, and acceptable scar maturation was obtained...

Today's reconstructive surgeons may not be aware that replacement of the nose was carried out successfully as long ago as the 16th century by the surgeon Gaspar Taliacozzo of Bologna, Italy, who published a detailed and illustrated account of his operation in 1597. This procedure comprised raising a flap of skin from the upper arm to reconstruct the nose. The arm was kept in place, with the hand resting on the patient's head, using elaborate splinting until adherence had taken place; the flap was then detached from the donor arm...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Surgical reconstruction following the removal of large malignant auricular lesions is challenging. While many options for defect closure have been described, in the elderly population usually affected flap surgery, long anesthesia times, patient compliance, and anticoagulant therapy pose additional risks. An alternative quick, simple, and effective method of defect closure is therefore highly desirable. The objective of the present study was to assess the aesthetic outcome, healing process, complications, and recurrence rates associated with unmeshed split-thickness skin grafts (STSGs) used for covering large auricular skin defects following cartilage-sparing skin cancer removal...

Background: The free anterolateral thigh (ALT) flap has been widely used for various kinds of reconstructions. However, delayed healing at the donor site occasionally occurs due to wound dehiscence or the partial loss of grafted skin at the donor site. The aim of the present study was to identify reliable predictive factors for delayed healing at the donor site after the harvest of a free ALT flap. Methods: This study included 52 patients who underwent reconstructive procedures using free ALT flaps...

The Hynes pharyngoplasty is the second most often performed procedure for velopharyngeal insufficiency in the United Kingdom and Ireland. A crucial step of the procedure is reliable fixation of the flaps onto the posterior pharynx wall. We prefer to fix the flaps to the prevertebral fascia. By using a manually straightened needle and a skin hook, in our hands, placement of this stitch can be made easier and faster.

RATIONALE: Though giant malignant tumors arising in the eyelid are rare, they often require extensive surgery for removal along with orbital exenteration. Because of this, repairing orbital defects is an important factor in the surgical strategy. PATIENT CONCERNS: Case 1 was a 78-year-old nomad man who presented in the Department of Ophthalmology with a giant tumor in his right eyelid, which had developed over three years. Clinical examination revealed a huge pigmented, nonhealing ulcerated lesion, approximately 52×44×40 mm in size...

BACKGROUND: Lower lip reconstruction requires consideration of esthetic and functional outcome in selecting a surgical procedure, and reconstruction with local tissue is useful. The authors reconstructed full-thickness defects with a unit advancement flap. METHODS: Reconstruction was performed using this method in 4 patients with lower lip squamous cell carcinoma in whom tumor resection with preservation of the mouth angle was possible. The lower lip resection width was 30 to 45 mm, accounting for 50% to 68% of the entire width of the lower lip...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: Loss of skin flaps due to deteriorated wound healing is a crucial clinical issue. Extracorporal shock wave therapy (ESWT) promotes flap healing by inducing angiogenesis and suppressing inflammation. The receptor for advanced glycation end-products (RAGEs) was identified to play a pivotal role in wound healing. However, to date, the role of RAGE in skin flaps and its interference with ESWT are unknown. METHODS: Caudally pedicled musculocutanous skin flaps in RAGE and wt mice were treated with low-dose extracorporal shock waves (s-RAGE, s-wt) and analyzed for flap survival, histomorphologic studies, and immunohistochemistry during a 10-day period...

A 66-year-old woman was referred to our institute for an enlarging tumor of the thyroid, and neck and chest computed tomography scan showed not only a thyroid tumor, but also an anterior mediastinal tumor and ground-glass nodules in the lung. Because of persisting symptoms, an enlarging thyroid mass, and the possibility of cancer, excision of the tumors was proposed. A 6-cm-long vertical skin incision was made in the right axilla, a mini-thoracotomy was made in the third intercostal space, and an additional port was placed in the fifth intercostal space...

BACKGROUND: Traumatic skin tears often occur in patients with dystrophic skin. Closing them with adhesive skin closures is useful for patients with a healthy flap, but occasionally fails to cover the entire defect. We describe a simple technique to perform mini patch grafting on the remaining raw surface without damaging healthy skin. DISCUSSION: The skin flap is spread out and fixed with adhesive skin strips to minimize defects first. Small pieces of skin are obtained by trimming the edges of the skin flap with curved tip scissors...

BACKGROUND: Degloving injuries are surgical conditions in which an extensive portion of skin and subcutaneous tissue is detached from the underlying fasciae, muscles, or bone surface. Frequently, there is an association of fracture underlying the degloved area. We aimed to compare the short-term outcomes of degloving injuries with and without underlying fracture. METHODS: A prospective cohort study was conducted. We recruited patients with degloving injuries, and followed them up for 30 days to assess the outcomes...
