Burns to the hands can be devastating injuries and early debridement and coverage can prevent these chronic problems. Reconstructive options for these defects include skin grafts, local, regional and distant flaps as well as free flaps. In this series we set out to demonstrate the versatility, durability and effectiveness of dorsal metacarpal artery flaps for primary soft tissue coverage This study involves a review of all consecutive patients who underwent acute soft tissue coverage using dorsal metacarpal artery flaps at our institution from December 2014 to December 2017...

Septal perforation repair and septorhinoplasty (SRP) each present unique surgical challenges. However, in many instances, these procedures may be performed together successfully. In this study, the authors aim to determine the safety and effectiveness of combining primary or revision SRP and septal perforation repair via an open approach. A retrospective review was carried out of all consecutive patients who had SRP and septal perforation repair via an open approach between 1986 and 2017 in the senior author's practice...

BACKGROUND: Tunnel technique (TUN) has recently gained popularity among clinicians for its promising clinical and esthetic results when treating gingival recessions (GRs) defects. However, the evidence of the efficacy of TUN in the literature is still to be determined. Therefore, the aim of the present systematic review and meta-analysis was to investigate the predictability of TUN and its comparison to coronally advanced flap (CAF) procedure. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A literature search on PubMed, Cochrane libraries, EMBASE, and hand-searched journals until November 2017 was conducted to identify clinical studies investigating TUN for root coverage procedures...

Reconstruction of large, full-thickness palmar and digital defects is challenging. The glabrous skin of the palm provides excellent color and texture match for palmar hand and digital defects. The reverse thenar perforator flap, which was previously infrequently used, provides a method for primary closure of large glabrous palmar skin defects. Because of the origin of the source vessels, the reverse thenar perforator flap is a good choice for larger radial-sided palmar and finger defects. This flap provides good aesthetic results for both the donor and the recipient...

Precision and planning are key to reconstructive surgery. Augmented reality (AR) can bring the information within preoperative computed tomography angiography (CTA) imaging to life, allowing the surgeon to 'see through' the patient's skin and appreciate the underlying anatomy without making a single incision. This work has demonstrated that AR can assist the accurate identification, dissection and execution of vascular pedunculated flaps during reconstructive surgery. Separate volumes of osseous, vascular, skin, soft tissue structures and relevant vascular perforators were delineated from preoperative CTA scans to generate three-dimensional images using two complementary segmentation software packages...

Purpose: Microvascular reconstruction is the standard of care for salvage of soft tissue defects in complex upper extremity due to their distinct advantages over the pedicled flaps. However, in the era of microsurgery, pedicled flaps have an acceptable significant role for reconstruction of complex soft tissue defects. The authors aim to demonstrate the versatility of pedicled thoracoumbilical flap (TUF) in selected clinical scenarios. Patients and Methods: Retrospective analysis of patients who underwent TUF for upper limb posttraumatic reconstruction was performed between January 2016 and October 2017...

BACKGROUND: Venous complications are the primary reason for flap loss in massive defect reconstructions; therefore, the quality and reliability of microvascular anastomoses are significant. The aim of this systematic review was to evaluate venous anastomotic time, the venous complication rate, and the flap failure rate with the mechanical anastomotic coupling device versus the hand-sewn technique in venous anastomoses of microvascular free flap operations. METHODS: Chinese and English databases were searched for eligible articles published between their inception and July of 2017...

BACKGROUND:  After thumb amputations, restoration of function and aesthetic can be accomplished with microvascular free toe flaps. However, many patients in clinical practice do not choose this reconstruction despite positive reported outcomes. This study aims to determine patients' perceptions with respect to free toe flaps to improve areas of informed consent. METHODS:  A retrospective survey was administered to patients with thumb amputations. Participants were required to complete a questionnaire about patient demographics, the Brief Michigan Hand Questionnaire (bMHQ), the standard gamble/time trade-off questionnaires for utility scores, and a questionnaire investigating potential reasons for electing not to undergo a free toe transfer...

Various flaps are used for skin defects of the dorsal hand and fingers. A sensory flap is not essential, but a thin and good color-matched flap is suitable, and donor site mobility of the flap should be considered. A reverse or free posterior interosseous artery perforator flap is one of the standard flaps. This flap requires no major arterial sacrifice, but direct closure of the donor site is difficult when the width of the flap is >3 cm, and there is also the risk of posterior interosseous nerve injury, especially the motor branch of the extensor carpi ulnaris muscle...

Background: Free tissue transfer has evolved from muscle flaps to fasciocutaneous flaps. Dissection of the intramuscular course of feeding vessels is technically challenging. Simulation-based microsurgery skills acquisition is moving toward nonliving training models. Living porcine model or human cadavers are currently cost-ineffective methods for the early learning curve in teaching intramuscular dissection. The aim of this study was to validate an inexpensive ex vivo porcine model simulating harvest of the deep inferior epigastric artery perforator (DIEAP) flap, specifically including perforator intramuscular dissection...

BACKGROUND: Surgical procedures such as thenar flaps and radial artery (RA) harvesting call for an elaborate anatomical study of the RA's superficial palmar branch (SPB). The aim of this study was to describe the branching pattern of this vessel related to the morphometric characteristics and variations of this artery. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty 4% formalin solution injected hands were dissected. For the morphometric study we used another group of thirty five human hands of adult persons, injected with methylmethacrylate fluid into the ulnar and radial arteries...

The dorsal-metacarpal-artery (DMCA) flap in its standard or extended version is considered as the working horse to cover dorsal soft tissue finger defects with exposed extensor tendon or bone. We hereby present a clinical case of an 80-year-old male patient who is right-handed and sustained a soft tissue defect of the proximal dorsal aspect of his left 5th finger and the postoperative outcome employing a modified transposition flap. The double-pedicled DMCA flap (dpDMCA flap) of the hand poses in adequate clinical scenarios a comparably fast and safe solution to cover dorsal finger defects extending just distal to the PIP joint...

A 49-year-old female presented with intense headaches of 3 months duration. Brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was performed and showed a sellar-suprasellar lesion extending into the third ventricle. A presumptive diagnosis of a craniopharyngioma was made. Since the patient did not have any visual deficits, she opted for conservative management. Four months later, she started to have progressive deterioration of vision; thus, surgery was indicated. The patient underwent endoscopic endonasal resection of the lesion through a transtuberculum sellae approach...

We present the case of a 67-year-old female with an incidental finding of a left-sided tuberculum sellae meningioma on a brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for an unrelated complaint. Formal visual field testing showed a small defect in the inferior nasal and temporal fields of the left eye, compatible with mass effect on the optic nerve by the tumor. An endoscopic endonasal transtuberculum approach with decompression of the left optic nerve was performed using a standard binostril four-hand technique, with the patient positioned supine with the head turned to the right side and tilted to the left, fixed in a three-pin head clamp, under imaging guidance...
