BACKGROUND: Pedicled transverse rectus abdominis myocutaneous (TRAM) flap was developed by Hartrampf in 1982 for breast reconstruction. Since deep inferior epigastric perforator (DIEP) flap was popularized, it has become the criterion standard for abdominally based breast reconstruction owing to its low donor site morbidity, excellent cosmetic outcomes, and high success rates. The purpose of this review is to determine if a unilateral pedicle TRAM flap has become obsolete to DIEP flap...

BACKGROUND: Journal ranking based on the impact factor (IF) can be distorted by self-citation. The aim of this study is to investigate the present status of self-citation in the plastic surgery journals and its effect on the journals' IFs. METHODS: IF, IF without self-citations (corrected IF), self-cited rate, and self-citing rate for 11 plastic surgery journals were investigated from 2009-2015, by reviewing the Journal Citation Report® . The correlations of the IF with the self-cited rate and the self-citing rate were statistically assessed...

INTRODUCTION: Presentation at scientific meetings is the usual first step to communicate new research findings. However, without subsequent, peer-reviewed publication, the wider propagation and the permanent documentation of important scholarly work may be lost. Our aim was to analyze and compare the publication status of the work presented at the European Association of Plastic Surgeons' (EURAPS) and at the American Association of Plastic Surgeons' (AAPS) annual meetings. MATERIALS AND METHODS: By using the abstract booklets from the annual meetings, all presentations given over a 10-year period (2000-2009) were analyzed...

Introduction Microsurgical reconstruction of the breast represents an area of continual evolution, as new autologous flaps are introduced and principles are refined. This progression can be demonstrated by bibliometric analysis of the scientific literature. Methods The top 10 plastic surgery journals were determined by impact factor (IF). Each issue of every journal from 1993 to 2013 was accessed directly, and all articles discussing microsurgery on the female breast were classified by authors' geographic location, study design, and level of evidence (LOE, I-V)...

BACKGROUND: Microsurgery has developed significantly since the inception of the first surgical microscope. There have been few attempts to describe "classic" microsurgery articles. In this study citation analysis was done to identify the most highly cited clinical and basic science articles published in five peer-reviewed plastic surgery journals. METHODS: Thomson/Reuters web of knowledge was used to identify the most highly cited microsurgery articles from five journals: Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Annals of Plastic Surgery, Journal of Plastic, Reconstructive & Aesthetic Surgery, Journal of Reconstructive Microsurgery, and Microsurgery...

BACKGROUND: Although the level of evidence is an important parameter during critical appraisal, the quality of reporting is similarly relevant. It is surprising that no objective analysis of the quality of reporting of the most common group of studies (ie, evidence level 4) has been performed to date. METHODS: A hand search was conducted including all issues of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, British Journal of Plastic Surgery, Journal of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery, Annals of Plastic Surgery, and Microsurgery for the years 1992, 2002, and 2012...

BACKGROUND: Systematic reviews frequently form the basis for clinical decision making and guideline development. Yet, the quality of systematic reviews has been variable, thus raising concerns about the validity of their conclusions. In the current study, a quality analysis of systematic reviews was performed, addressing microsurgical head and neck reconstruction. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A PubMed search was performed to identify all systematic reviews published up to and including December 2012 in 12 surgical journals...

BACKGROUND: A short columella can result in significant cosmetic and functional deformities. Various techniques such as local flap transfer and composite grafts have been reported for columellar lengthening, but the overall results remain unsatisfactory. Transferring a local flap cannot provide new tissue for the columella, which limits its application. Composite grafting can provide new tissue volume, and the composite tissue from the preauricular region has an excellent color and texture match...

Despite the sacrifice of rectus abdominis muscle, the vertical rectus abdominis musculocutaneous (VRAM) flap is still a preferred option for perineal reconstruction. This journal has previously reported on the utility of preoperative computed tomographic angiography (CTA) in this setting to identify cases that are both suitable and unsuitable for rectus abdominis flaps after previous surgery. We report a case which highlights a unique example of the benefits of such imaging, with the largest deep inferior epigastric artery (DIEA) perforator described to date identified on imaging, and used to potentiate a donor-site sparing procedure...

The often groundbreaking developments of new methods in Plastic Surgery have been published in the journal "Der Chirurg" (The Surgeon) ever since its foundation in 1928, when it was established as a journal dealing with all aspects of surgery and containing many innovations and developments. Historically this is also reflected in the establishment of Plastic Surgery initially as a subspecialty and later on as a specialty within the German Society for Surgery. The interdisciplinary character of modern reconstructive and oncological concepts, not only with other specialties but also within various surgical specialties, raises further challenges and leads to new developments in reconstruction, which will definitely induce an increasing amount of knowledge to the advantage of our patients...

Medicinal leech therapy is an ancient craft that dates back to ancient Egypt and the beginnings of civilisation. The popularity of Hirudo Medicinalis has varied throughout history, reaching such a peak in Europe in the early 19th century that supplies were exhausted. During the latter half of the 19th century, their use fell out of favour, as they did not fit in with the emerging concepts of modern medicine. Leeches have enjoyed a renaissance in the world of reconstructive microsurgery during recent years, and their first reported use in alleviating venous engorgement following flap surgery was reported in this journal [M Derganc, F Zdravic, Venous congestion of flaps treated by application of leeches, Br J Plast Surg 13 (1960) 187]...

Otorhinolaryngology, a product of the early 20th century, developed from the joining together of the separate departments of otology, whose practitioners were surgeons, and laryngology which was managed by physicians who also treated diseases of the nose and chest. The 20th century opened with brave attempts to perform skilful surgery under conditions of primitive anaesthesia and no antibiotics. The stimulus of two world wars led to significant advances in technology and greater opportunities to explore new and resurrect old surgical procedures...

As a supplement to our publication in the Journal Handchirurgie, Mikrochirurgie, Plastische Chirurgie 21 (1989) 315-317, we would like to report a five-year follow up of a patient with recurrent sigmoid carcinoma, infiltrating all layers of the abdominal wall. Treatment was by radical tumor excision and reconstruction with a combined tensor fasciae latae and rectus femoris flap. Abdominal wall, hip, and knee functions were evaluated by gait-analysis (Motion Analysis Corporation AMTI) and dynamometry (Cybex 6000)...

Microvascular tissue transfer is a growing subspecialty in reconstructive surgery. Its use is increasing, and it has been used to solve difficult wound problems. The use of microvascular surgery has placed new demands on the perioperative nurse to remain current on perioperative implications of this type of surgery. Operating room nurses must continue to expand their knowledge of this area through ongoing education from journal review, specialty seminars, and increased operative experiences.

Since the rediscovery of the latissimus dorsi flap in 1976 axial skin- and musculocutaneous flaps have dramatically improved the possibilities of plastic reconstruction. Better knowledge of the microvascular anatomy of the thoracic wall is the condition for safe flap surgery. The frequent topographic variations and the possibility of a reversed flow through vascular anastomosis are shown. This paper is ment to be a basic introduction to the following communications on flaptechniques in the same journal.

Professor Androsov's articles should be of considerable interest to American surgeons, representing as they do a new freedom in the exchange of ideas with the medical profession of the Soviet Union. In recent years no Russian surgeon has sought publication of original work in surgical journals of this country. Early last fall I visited Professor Androsov in Moscow at the Sklifosovsky Institute, a hospital made famous by the late Professor Yudin. I was impressed by the work that he and his associates were doing in peripheral vascular surgery and in the reconstruction of lye burns of the esophagus...
