The aim of the present case report was to show the 17-year hard and soft tissues stability of guided bone regeneration procedure associated with dental implants insertion. A 52-year-old male patient presented with a partial edentulism in the upper right maxilla. A graft consisting of deproteinized bovine bone mineral and autogenous bone stabilized by a non-resorbable expanded polytetrafluoroethylene membrane was used to reconstruct the missing bone applying the biological principles of guided bone regeneration...

BACKGROUND:  Microvascular reconstruction of the anterior cranial fossa (ACF) creates difficult challenges. Reconstructive goals and flap selection vary based on the defect location within the ACF. This study evaluates the feasibility and reliability of free tissue transfer for salvage reconstruction of low, middle, and high ACF defects. METHODS:  A retrospective review was performed. Reconstructions were anatomically classified as low (anterior skull base), middle (frontal bar/sinus), and high (frontal bone/soft tissue)...

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...

INTRODUCTION: We developed a novel technique of creating a rounded rectangular femoral bone tunnel for anatomical, single-bundle, autologous hamstring tendon anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. Although this tunnel has many advantages, its non-circular shape has raised concerns regarding excessive graft shift within the bone tunnel. This study aimed to compare the graft shift between round and rounded rectangular tunnels using a graft diameter tester for simulating the femoral bone tunnel...

Recombinant human bone morphogenic protein-2 (BMP-2) loaded absorbable collagen sponges (ACS) have been successfully used to enhance bone formation and to induce spinal fusion in humans. However, side effects, such as soft-tissue edema and inflammation, have been reported. NEMO binding domain peptide (NBD) inhibits activation of nuclear factor kappa-light-chain-enhancer of activated B cells (NF-κB), a central regulator of immune response. In this study, we investigated NBD's potential to reduce BMP-2-induced soft-tissue inflammation without affecting BMP-2-mediated spinal fusion in rat...

INTRODUCTION: Nonsurgical and surgical management of periimplant mucositis and periimplantitis have shown promising results in arresting periimplant marginal bone loss (MBL) and preventing implant loss. However, management of periimplant diseases still remains unpredictable for full reconstruction of lost tissues and completely arrests disease progression. The present study proposes a decision tree that compiles both clinical and radiographic presentation of failing implants to aid in the decision making for their management...

Superior capsular reconstruction has received increased attention as a surgical technique to address massive 'irreparable' rotator cuff tears; however, the functional limitations and surgical techniques associated with this repair have yet to be sufficiently explored. The goal of this study was to utilize a multidisciplinary approach to characterize the biomechanics of this repair by: 1) identifying activities of daily living that may overburden graft, and 2) optimizing surgical techniques used during implantation...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The choice of reconstructive technique for a segmental mandibular defect in elderly patients is controversial. The aim of this study was to establish an algorithm for selecting a method of mandibular reconstruction in elderly patients. METHODS: We retrospectively evaluated 121 patients aged ≥65 years who underwent immediate microvascular mandibular reconstruction after oncologic resection. Patients were divided into three groups based on method of reconstruction: vascularized bone graft (n = 49), mandibular reconstruction plate and soft tissue flap (n = 22), and soft-tissue flap (n = 50)...

BACKGROUND: Soft tissue grafting to thicken the soft tissue around dental implants was proposed to ameliorate the esthetic outcome. Traditionally, connective tissue is used as a grafting material, but a xenogeneic collagen matrix was introduced as an alternative to reduce patient morbidity. METHODS: Sixty patients randomly received either no graft (n = 20, NG group), a connective tissue graft (n = 20, CTG group) or a xenogeneic collagen matrix (n = 20, XCM group) when placing an implant in a preserved alveolar ridge...

One-stage reconstruction of composite bone and soft-tissue defects in the forearm remains a tough challenge. Here, we present a case of reconstruction of complex tissue defect at forearm with a chimeric flap consisting of a sural neurocutaneous flap and a fibular graft. A 61-year-old man suffered from a machine crush injury in his left forearm, resulting in a complex tissue defect including extensive dorsomedial soft-tissue, digit extensor muscles of 2-4 fingers, the muscle flexor carpi ulnaris, the ulna bone with 5...

REVIEW
Chung-Chen Hsu, James Tseng, Yu-Te Lin
When faced with reconstructing metacarpal defects, various options have been described. We describe a chimeric medial femoral condyle osteocutaneous flap as a new method for providing multiple bone grafts as well as soft tissue coverage in a single stage. The medial femoral condyle has become an area of increased interest given the versatility it allows in harvesting the bone. This osteocutaneous flap is useful when reconstructing small- to medium-sized adjacent metacarpal bone defects. The chimeric design of the flap lends flexibility at the time of inset that is absent for other options of vascularized bone grafts...

EDITORIAL

Soft tissue allograft augmentation of small hamstring autografts, so-called hybrid grafts, has been proposed as an option during anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACL-R). However, notable concerns exist with both small autograft use and allograft use during ACL-R, particularly in young, active patients. We currently choose to augment hamstring autografts with diameters <8.0 mm, adding only enough allograft to create a hybrid graft with an overall diameter no larger than 8.5 mm. Based on the available evidence, surgeons continue to seek the tipping point where the benefit of additional allograft tissue exceeds the consequence of its use...

We present a novel method for columellar reconstruction using a hidden donor site and review the challenges and limitations of columellar reconstruction in children with Fitzpatrick VI skin type. A staged reconstruction was conceived in which a full-thickness skin graft was transferred to the superior gingivolabial sulcus in the area of the maxillary frenulum. Six months later, the prelaminated soft tissue flap was delivered through a horizontal incision at the subnasale, and the donor site closed primarily...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The purpose of this review is to describe the current understanding of the medial patellofemoral complex, including recent anatomic advances, evaluation of indications for reconstruction with concomitant pathology, and surgical reconstruction techniques. RECENT FINDINGS: Recent advances in our understanding of MPFC anatomy have found that there are fibers that insert onto the deep quadriceps tendon as well as the patella, thus earning the name "medial patellofemoral complex" to allow for the variability in its anatomy...

The purpose of this study is to establish a small animal anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction research model where ACL graft force can be varied to create different graft force patterns with controlled knee motion. Cadaveric ( n  = 10) and in vivo ( n  = 10) rat knees underwent ACL resection followed by reconstruction using a soft tissue autograft. Five cadaveric and five in vivo knees received a nonisometric, high-force femoral graft tunnel position. Five cadaveric and five in vivo knees received a more isometric, low-force graft tunnel position...

BACKGROUND: Recurrent patellar instability incidence is 5.8/100,000 population, and recurrent dislocations are reported in the range of 15-80%. Recurrent instability is multifactorial and can be associated with disorder of limb alignment, osseous development, congruity of the patella in the trochlea and soft tissue static and dynamic constraints. The multifactorial aetiology makes management challenging, and a lack studies in a heterogeneous population with robust clinical outcomes compounds this further...

Restoring adequate blood supply is essential to the success of bone repair and augmentation procedures in craniofacial surgery. Nevertheless, the manner by which the incorporation of collagen gels (which can potentially induce angiogenesis), particulated deproteinized bovine bone grafts, or a combination of both can accelerate or delay bone regeneration in a clinical setting remains controversial. The objective of this study was to evaluate radiographically and histologically the capacity and functionality of particulated bone grafts and collagen gels on bone ossification and soft tissue formation in a rabbit calvarial defect...

Deepithelialized flaps and grafts have been widely used by reconstructive surgeons in a diverse array of surgical specialties and have more recently made an appearance in dermatologic surgery. These techniques may be advantageous in their enabling of contour preservation of deep defects, reconstructions in areas of high mechanical tension, single-stage repairs, auricle reconstruction requiring tissue transfer, and reconstruction requiring free margins in areas with a paucity of local soft tissue. This article provides a review of the literature on deepithelialized flaps and grafts...
