Abdominal aortic graft-enteric fistula is an uncommon but grave complication. Acceptable early results of its management have been reported in recent years, but aortic stump disruption remains a dreaded problem in the remote period. This report describes a case of a 71-year-old male with graft-enteric fistula following after a distant abdominal aortic aneurysm repair. The patient underwent 1-stage operation with extra-anatomic bypass preceding the complete removal of the infected aortic graft and intestinal repair...

BACKGROUNDS: The harvesting of great saphenous veins for coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) patients may result in significant complications, including lymphorrhagia, lymphoedema, incision infection, wound dehiscence, and skin flap necrosis. We investigated the function of a self-designed bilayered negative pressure wound therapy (b-NPWT) for reducing the above-mentioned complications using a clinical randomized controlled trial. METHODS: A single-center, pilot randomized controlled trial was conducted...

BACKGROUND: With an aging but still active population, open ankle fractures are increasingly presenting as low energy fragility injuries, sharing many characteristics with that of hip fractures. Yet, there is little in the literature on the management and outcome of these fractures. The primary aim of this study was to describe the outcome following open, ankle fragility fracture. Our secondary aim was to identify potential factors that improved outcome. METHODS: All consecutive, low energy open ankle fractures treated at a Level I Trauma Centre over a five-year period were included...

Background Free vascularized fibular flaps (FVFFs) are accepted surgical options to treat osteonecrosis of the femoral head and neck (ONFHN) to prevent conversion to total hip replacement (THR), yet many studies are single institution cohorts, with little generalizability. Purpose The purpose of this study was to perform a systematic review examining the comparative effectiveness of FVFF to treat ONFHN, particularly preventing conversion to a THR and improving hip function/symptoms. Methods We searched PubMed and EMBASE databases using femoral head, free fibula, and femoral neck keywords...

BACKGROUND: Although several methods have been described for total lower eyelid reconstruction, it remains as a major challenge in reconstructive surgery. Here, we present a new technique, the Mutaf unequal Z-plasty procedure for reconstruction of defects of the lower eyelid. METHODS: In this technique, 2 skin flaps designed in an unequal Z-plasty manner are used to provide skin coverage. Except for 2 patients whose additional upper eyelid defects were closed with Fricke flap, all patients were reconstructed with Mutaf unequal Z-plasty procedure...

Paul M Glat, Thomas Davenport
The reconstructive ladder is a term coined by reconstructive plastic surgeons to describe levels of increasingly complex management of wounds. The first rungs of the ladder is allowing the wound to heal by secondary intention, advancing up the ladder to direct tissue closure, with skin grafting and tissue transfer (flaps) comprising the higher rungs. Skin grafting and tissue transfer (flaps) at the middle and higher rungs of the ladder are often necessary for the treatment of complex burn injuries. Our purpose is to describe how dehydrated human amnion/chorion membrane allografts may be used as an adjunctive treatment...

BACKGROUND: Numerous nipple reconstruction methods have been proposed including the use of local flaps and composite grafts, but most methods have shown a significant loss of projection. We combined a modified CV flap with a composite graft (nipple sharing) to maximize the projection and volume of the new nipple and reduce the size of the contralateral nipple. METHODS: In total, 30 patients underwent nipple reconstruction using a combined method between January 2013 and November 2015...

REVIEW
Warren Snodgrass, Nicol Bush
This review summarizes data regarding commonly used surgical techniques to repair distal and proximal hypospadias. We review evidence concerning indications for various procedures used in primary hypospadias repair, and their complications, urinary function and esthetic results. Available evidence suggests TIP is preferable to Mathieu for distal hypospadias correction. Current data do not identify a clear preference between TIP and onlay flap for proximal repair when there is ventral curvature <30°, or between various flap and graft options when curvature is >31°...

Mucoepidermoid carcinoma (MEC) is the most common type of malignant neoplasm in the minor salivary gland. The hard palate is a frequently involved site of MEC. The treatment of low-grade MEC on the hard palate is wide local resection with a tumor-free margin. In the present case, the maxillary defect was reconstructed using a buccal fat pad (BFP) flap, followed by application of 4-hexylresorcinol (4HR) ointment for 2 weeks. The grafted BFP successfully covered the tumor resection defect without tension and demonstrated complete re-epithelialization without any complications...

PURPOSE: Extensor indicis proprius tendon transfer has been considered the reference standard technique for extensor pollicis longus (EPL) chronic ruptures, but relevant complications have been reported. We describe a new reconstructive technique for chronic EPL ruptures and assess functional recovery after this procedure. METHODS: We observed 31 patients who fulfilled inclusion criteria an average of 6.8 months after treatment. An L-shaped local tendon flap was prepared by making a transverse incision to the middle of the tendon and then longitudinally toward the end of one of the tendon stumps...

PURPOSE: Many techniques exist for simple syndactyly reconstruction. The most commonly used techniques involve either skin grafts or a dorsal metacarpal advancement flap. Our aim was to review and compare the outcomes of these 2 techniques systematically. METHODS: We reviewed articles from PubMed, MEDLINE, EMBASE, and Google Scholar published between January 1966 and January 2016. We identified studies that reported outcomes after reconstruction of simple syndactyly using skin grafts and those using only a dorsal metacarpal advancement flap...

Many patients present to general surgeons with scalp lesions which require wide local excision with margin, following which the defect is too large to be closed primarily. These lesions can be benign or malignant. Skin grafting of these defects gives poor cosmetic outcome. Knowledge of basic flaps will enable the general surgeon to close these defects to heal by primary intention. Also, the margin of excision will not be compromised because of anticipated difficulty in closing the wound. We present a series of three cases who underwent excision of scalp lesions resulting in moderate size scalp defects...
