Pectoralis major rupture is an uncommon injury often treated surgically, requiring anatomic knowledge of the tendon insertion. This study defines the pectoralis major tendon insertion footprint and a novel anatomic relationship. Twelve cadaver shoulders were evaluated andmeasured using a standard surgical ruler to demonstrate the normal anatomic footprint. Measurements were taken from the anterior medial margin of the articular surface of the humeral head to the superior margin of the pectoralis major insertion and its relation to the latissimus dorsi tendon insertion...

PURPOSE: Free tissue transfer after lower extremity trauma is associated with notoriously high complication rates. Theoretically, the inclusion of a cutaneous paddle on muscle free flaps may improve clinical flap monitoring. The effect of skin paddle presence on muscle free flap salvage outcomes after take-back was examined. METHODS: Retrospective query of our institutional free-flap registry (1979-2016) identified 362 muscle-based flaps performed for soft tissue coverage after below-knee trauma...

BACKGROUND: Combined latissimus dorsi and prosthetic reconstruction is a useful reconstructive option in patients with a history of breast radiation who are not good candidates for abdominally based autologous reconstruction. One difficulty, particularly in obese patients, is that the thickness of the flap can impair port localization, increasing the risk of inadvertent puncture during expansion. The authors sought to investigate the upper limits of tissue thickness at which tissue expansion can be reliably performed...

Early soft-tissue coverage is critical for treating traumatic open lower-extremity wounds. As free-flap reconstruction evolves, injuries once thought to be nonreconstructable are being salvaged. Free-tissue transfer is imperative when there is extensive dead space or exposure of vital structures such as bone, tendon, nerves, or blood vessels. We describe 2 cases of lower-extremity crush injuries salvaged with the quad flap. This novel flap consists of parascapular, scapular, serratus, and latissimus dorsi free flaps in combination on one pedicle...

BACKGROUND: We report a study evaluating and comparing shoulder-related morbidity associated with delayed breast reconstruction using either the conventional latissimus dorsi (LD) flap or the thoracodorsal artery perforator (TAP) flap. MATERIAL & METHODS: We conducted a retrospective cohort study of women over 18 years of age who had a unilateral, delayed breast reconstruction by either an LD or TAP flap at one center over a 56-month period. Shoulder function was assessed using the Constant Shoulder Score (CSS), which evaluated pain, activity of daily life (ADL), range of motion (ROM), and strength...

BACKGROUND: For organ transplant recipients, cancer secondary to immunosuppressive therapy threatens long-term survival. The associated multiple comorbidities make major free flap reconstruction following cancer surgery a complicated event. This study evaluates the outcomes of free flap reconstruction in this population. METHODS: A retrospective chart review of all head and neck free flap cases in patients with a history of organ transplantation receiving systemic immunosuppressive therapy between 2005 and 2017 at a single-institution was conducted...

INTRODUCTION: Wound bed preparation is necessary for proper wound healing. CASE REPORT: The case of a 75-year-old man with good outcomes after using a hydrosurgery system for capsulectomy is presented. At a 2-month follow-up visit, a fistula measuring 15 cm x 10 cm was found to have developed in the patient's left scapular region after the first wide-excision surgery for soft tissue sarcoma and reconstruction of the defect using a local flap. The wound had fluid collection and a capsule that was then debrided with a hydrosurgery system...

In cases of significant upper extremity trauma, the thoracodorsal nerve is a reliable secondary option for the restoration of elbow flexion. In all previous descriptions, however, the entire nerve is transferred. We describe a case utilizing the lateral thoracodorsal nerve (LaT) branch for biceps reinnervation with an associated cadaver study. Transfer of the LaT branch to the biceps branch was performed on a patient who had sustained a traumatic brachial plexus injury that left him without elbow flexion. Also, 4 cadavers (8 upper extremities) were dissected to identify the bifurcation of the thoracodorsal nerve and confirm the feasibility of transferring the LaT branch to the biceps motor branch...

Volume loss is 1 of the major factors influencing cosmetic outcomes of breast after partial mastectomy (PM), especially for smaller breasts, and therefore, volume replacement is critical for optimizing the final aesthetic outcome. We present a novel technique of raising a pedicled descending branch latissimus dorsi (LD) mini-flap for reconstruction of PM defects via an axillary incision. After PM, the LD mini-flap is harvested through the existing axillary incision of the axillary dissection or the sentinel lymph node biopsy...

As rates of bilateral mastectomy and immediate reconstruction rise, the aesthetic and psychosocial benefits of breast reconstruction are increasingly well understood. However, an understanding of functional outcome and its optimization is still lacking. This endpoint is critical to maximizing postoperative quality of life. All reconstructive modalities have possible functional consequences. Studies demonstrate that implant-based reconstruction impacts subjective movement, but patients' day-to-day function may not be objectively hindered despite self-reported disability...

INTRODUCTION: The face is unique because functional and aesthetic considerations are equally important. Extensive deep chemical burns of the face are usually reconstructed with flaps. In males, the use of the hair - bearing superficial temporal artery flap has the advantage of achieving a satisfactory outcome with regards to both function and aesthetics. PRESENTATION OF CASE: A 49-year-old man sustained a deep chemical burn to the right side of the face and neck...

BACKGROUND: One-stage closure and fenestration are the available surgical options for bronchopleural fistula (BPF). One-stage closure may be applicable in cases with favorable infection control. Closing the bronchopleural stump is difficult due to thick adhesion caused by inflammation and a high risk of pulmonary artery injury. We report the successful closure of a BPF using a gastric seromuscular patch with an omental pedicle flap. CASE PRESENTATION: A 73-year-old man underwent right lower lobectomy with ND2a-2 lymph node dissection for lung adenocarcinoma...

INTRODUCTION: Latissimus dorsi (LD) flap has been used for reconstructive purposes in oncoplastic breast surgery. Using large part of the muscle as a flap leads to a residual functional loss. Muscle sparing and mini LD flaps can be used with no functional sequelae. However, the design of such flap presents a challenge. METHODS: Twenty cadavers were dissected on both sides to identify the different vascular patterns of the thoracodorsal (TD) pedicle. The vessels were counted, and the following measurements were taken: diameter, length, distance from inferior angel of scapula, and vertebral level...

Voluntary elbow extension is essential for optimal upper limb positioning required for daily living activities, particularly above-shoulder maneuvers. The authors present a case of traumatic brachial plexus injury in which paralysis of the musculature selectively supplied by the posterior cord was based on magnetic resonance imaging and nerve conduction studies. An attempt at a radial nerve graft at another center was not effective. Ipsilateral hand function improved after multiple local tendon transfers were performed...
