Mark M Leyngold
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...

PURPOSE: Conflicts of interest (COI) are an emerging area of discussion within the field of plastic surgery. Recently, several reports have found that research studies that disclose COI are associated with publication of positive outcomes. We hypothesize that this association is driven by higher-quality studies receiving industry funding. This study aimed to investigate the association between industry support and study methodological quality. METHODS: We reviewed all entries in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Annals of Plastic Surgery, and Journal of Plastic, Reconstructive, and Aesthetic Surgery within a 1-year period encompassing 2013...

All abdominal surgical procedures have a certain risk/benefit ratio. Recently, the way surgeons come to a decision whether to operate, or not, was discussed in the Annals of Surgery. First, the assessment of the decision for an operative versus a non-operative strategy was addressed on the basis of clinical vignettes. The perceptions concerning risk/benefit balance varied considerably between surgeons and these perceptions predicted the decision to operate. In a second paper, surgeons were randomized to either an arm in which they were exposed to a risk calculator or to a control arm...
