BACKGROUND: Venous congestion after deep inferior epigastric artery perforator (DIEP) flap breast reconstruction is a complication that may be partially attributable to variations in venous abdominal wall anatomy. In previous work, we have shown that ferumoxytol may be used as a bloodpool contrast agent to perform high-resolution venous imaging. Our current aim was to use this technology to perform a detailed analysis of the venous anatomy among patients undergoing DIEP flap breast reconstruction...

REVIEW
Jeremy A Warren, Michael Love
A common surgical procedure, ventral hernia repair has long been a vexing problem, with no clear standard for repair and significant postoperative morbidity. Laparoscopic repair has the clear advantage of lower postoperative morbidity. However, application of laparoscopic ventral hernia repair is often limited by patient factors and hernia morphology. Long-term complications of intraperitoneal mesh and recurrence are concerning. Robotic-assisted surgery is the latest advance in minimally invasive hernia repair, combining the advantages of open repair with complete abdominal wall reconstruction and restoration of functional anatomy with the wound morbidity and decreased recovery time of laparoscopy...

PURPOSE: Sarcopenia, or loss of muscle mass, is associated with increased morbidity and mortality in oncologic resections and several other major surgeries. Complex ventral hernia repairs (VHRs) and abdominal wall reconstruction are often performed in patients at high risk for morbidity and recurrence, though limited data exist on outcomes related to sarcopenia. We aimed to determine if sarcopenia is associated with worse outcomes in patients undergoing VHR. METHODS: We reviewed patients undergoing VHRs from 2014 to 2015...

Phlegmonous gastritis is a rapidly progressive bacterial infection of the stomach wall. It has a high mortality rate and aggressive treatment, either with antibiotics or surgical resection, is required. Here, we report an extremely rare case of phlegmonous gastritis associated with advanced esophageal cancer. A 65-year-old Japanese man was urgently admitted to the hospital due to pyrexia and gastrointestinal symptoms. Abdominal computed tomography revealed widespread diffuse thickening of the gastric wall. On endoscopic examination, an ulcerative mass was detected at the lower thoracic esophagus, and a markedly elevated submucosal lesion was present in the middle of the stomach body...

RATIONALE: Acute phlegmonous gastritis (PG) is a rare and often fatal condition mainly characterized by severe bacterial infection of the gastric wall. Case reports of PG over the past century average about 1 per year. Early diagnosis and immediate treatment are crucial to achieve positive outcomes. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 47-year-old man was referred to our hospital because of abdominal pain, high fever, and vomiting for 4 days, with aggravation for 24 hours. Physical examination revealed epigastric abdominal pain, rebound pain, and abdominal wall tightness...

PURPOSE: Posterior component separation (PCS) via the transversus abdominis release (TAR) procedure continues to gain popularity. However, neither the physiologic basis nor the extent of myofascial medialization after TAR is established. We aimed to assess both anterior and posterior rectus fascia (AF and PF) medialization following each step of the TAR procedure. METHODS: Ten fresh cadavers underwent PCS via TAR. Steps included midline laparotomy (MLL), retrorectus dissection (RRD), incision of the posterior rectus sheath (IPL), transversus abdominis muscle division (TAD), and retromuscular dissection (RMD)...

Intestinal perforation (IP) is a life-threatening gastroenterological condition requiring urgent surgical care, which may present itself as an uncommon complication following incisional hernia repair surgery, most often because of iatrogenic traumatism occurring during the procedure. However, we report a case where a spontaneous onset can be hypothesised. A 60-years-old patient underwent repair of an abdominal laparocele, through rectus abdominis muscle plasty, 5 years after development of an incisional hernia due to exploratory laparotomy for the treatment of acute appendicitis...

Neuromas can be a debilitating cause of pain and often negatively affect patients' quality of life. One effective method of treatment involves surgical resection of the painful neuroma and use of a processed nerve allograft to repair the injured nerve segment. Giving the nerve "somewhere to go and something to do" has been shown to effectively alleviate pain in upper and lower extremities. We present the first report of this concept to treat a painful neuroma of the abdominal wall that developed following a laparoscopic gastric bypass...

BACKGROUND: Prospective evaluation of rectus abdominis muscle function after deep inferior epigastric artery perforator (DIEP) flap breast reconstruction is limited. Elimination of muscle harvest with this procedure is theoretically associated with preservation of rectus abdominis function and minimization of abdominal wall morbidity. In this study, the authors evaluate the change in rectus abdominis muscle size and function after DIEP flap surgery. METHODS: Patients undergoing unilateral DIEP flap surgery were recruited prospectively...

In order to create a tissue-engineered vascular graft we elaborated a matrix consisting of nanofibres of biodegradable polymer L-polylactide. We worked out the methodology of crystallization of the matrix on a rod, making it possible to manufacture specimens possessing strength and deformity characteristics superior to those of native vessels. This was followed by a series of chronic experiments on implanting the elaborated matrix into the abdominal aorta of rats for the duration of up to 16 months. We obtained satisfactory parameters of the patency of the matrices (71%)...

Background: The formation of hepatic hemangiomas (HH) is associated with VEGF and IL-7 that alter conduit arteries and small arterioles. To our knowledge, there are no studies to investigate the effects of HH on the hemodynamics in conduit arteries. The aim of the study is to perform morphometric and hemodynamic analysis in abdominal conduit arteries and bifurcations of HH patients and controls. Methods: Based on morphometry reconstructed from CT images, geometrical models were meshed with prismatic elements for the near wall region and tetrahedral and hexahedral elements for the core region...

BACKGROUND: Thermography permits non-invasive examination and presentation of cutaneous temperature differences. When planning microvascular flaps, thermography may illustrate these differences and may portray patterns of blood circulation near to perforators. As an additional tool, thermography may enhance quality and diversity in free flaps. PATIENTS AND METHODS: In this prospective study, we examined 10 patients with 13 free DIEP-flaps for breast reconstruction...

BACKGROUND: Color Doppler ultrasound (CDUS) has not been routinely used in plastic and reconstructive surgery. Barriers to use have included large, cumbersome equipment, low-definition images, cost, and availability. In addition, programs in plastic surgery have not included training with ultrasound (US); thus, many current-day practitioners are unfamiliar with and reluctant to use this technology. Nevertheless, recent studies have demonstrated the utility of US in surgical planning. With the miniaturization, clearer imaging, and decreased costs of the latest US technology, previous barriers to use have largely been eliminated...

The giant omphalocele (GO) represents a challenge for the pediatric surgeon in its management and wall abdominoplasty. Here, we report the outcome of a case in which a GO in a newborn patient was repaired with an implant derived from decellularized bovine pericardium crosslinked with oligourethane. The implantation time was extended for 6 months. This was then followed up by the retrieval of the implant and the subsequent reconstruction in a second surgical time by the closure of the abdominal wall fascia...

We report a case in which abdominal tattoo margins were modified and used to hide the surgical incision for desmoid tumour removal. Our patient is a 37-year-old female with history remarkable for atrial septal defect closure at the age of ten, but not for previous abdominal surgeries or trauma. A desmoid tumour diagnosis was made upon needle biopsy of the 5 × 4 cm2 mass confined to the rectus abdominis. Subsequently, tumour was resected with an incision through the tattoo upper margin and abdominal wall was reconstructed with primary fascial closure mesh reinforced...

One blunt abdominal aortic disruption (BAAD) and one blunt thoracic aortic injury (BTAI) case are presented. Both aortic injuries were combined with spinal fractures. In the BAAD case the aortic pseudoaneurysm manifested just above the lumbar fracture while in the BTAI case the aortic injury appeared several vertebras below the thoracal fracture site, suggesting different mechanisms in the aortic wall damage. In both cases the aortic wall first was sealed, successfully, by endovascularly-placed stents, meaning the risks of open aortic reconstructive surgery could be avoided...
