BACKGROUND: Nasal reconstruction is a common plastic surgery procedure following cancer resection. Whereas most small and medium defects are managed using standard local flaps, reconstructive options available for large defects of the nose such as a heminasal defect are very few. Most of the large defects are usually managed using a forehead flap, which involves at least 2 stages or using free tissue transfer. The author describes a combination flap that can be used for reconstruction of heminasal defects as well as lateral wall defects...

The main purposes of periodontal graft surgery include achieving root coverage, improving the clinical attachment level and keratinized tissue, and advancing the procedure of periodontal plastic surgery. Autogenous graft, such as subepithelial connective tissue graft-based procedure, provide the best outcomes for mean and complete root coverage, as well as increase in keratinized tissue. However, a disadvantage of the procedure is in the location of the operation itself: the additional surgical site (palate)...

The UVA/riboflavin collagen crosslinking (CXL) is one of the treatment procedure for stopping the progression of keratoconus. The inclusion criterion for this procedure is a minimum corneal thickness of 400 μm, which is not often met in patients with advanced keratoconus. Preoperatively swelling of thin corneas was shown to stabilize the keratectasia without any postoperative endothelial damage. Recently, we have shown that swelling porcine corneas prior to the CXL treatment had no significant effect on the resulting improvement in their tensile properties...

Miller's class I gingival recessions (GR) have been treated using coronally advanced flap (CAF) with platelet-rich fibrin membrane (PRF membrane) or connective tissue graft (CTG). The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of different multiple layers of PRF membranes for the treatment of GR compared with the CTG procedure. Sixty-three Miller class I GR were treated in this study. Twenty-one GR selected randomly were treated with two layers of PRF membranes+CAF in 2PRF+CAF (test group-1), four layers of PRF membranes+CAF in 4PRF+CAF (test group-2), and CTG+CAF in the control group...

Bats represent one of the most diverse mammalian orders, not only in terms of species numbers, but also in their ecology and life histories. Many species are known to use ephemeral and/or unpredictable resources that require substantial investment to find and defend, and also engage in social interactions, thus requiring significant levels of social coordination. To accomplish these tasks, bats must be able to communicate; there is now substantial evidence that demonstrates the complexity of bat communication and the varied ways in which bats solve some of the problems associated with their unique life histories...

Septal perforation repair and septorhinoplasty (SRP) each present unique surgical challenges. However, in many instances, these procedures may be performed together successfully. In this study, the authors aim to determine the safety and effectiveness of combining primary or revision SRP and septal perforation repair via an open approach. A retrospective review was carried out of all consecutive patients who had SRP and septal perforation repair via an open approach between 1986 and 2017 in the senior author's practice...

Jeongseok Oh, Hee Chang Ahn, Seungki Youn, Kyung Tae
PURPOSE: The pectoralis major musculocutaneous (PMMC) flap is a classic flap for head and neck reconstruction, relatively unpopular with the advancement of microsurgery and free flaps. The classic parasternal paddle design provided a thick flap with a small rotation arch leaving objectionable scarring. Our new symmetric midsternal design overcomes these problems. METHODS: Chart review was done from the years 2000 to 2017. Flap skin paddle was placed symmetrically on both sides of the midsternal line...

BACKGROUND: For extensive postburn neck deformities, the preexpanded flaps in the upper back region were used and gained a uniform skin appearance and esthetic contours. Free-style perforator-based free-tissue transfer that represents the most recent advance in reconstructive surgery may provide more versatility of these flaps. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 31 patients treated at our institution for postburn neck contracture from March 2010 to May 2016. Various upper back flaps were designed according to the dominant perforators and the shape of the defect after fully releasing the neck contracture...

BACKGROUND: Tunnel technique (TUN) has recently gained popularity among clinicians for its promising clinical and esthetic results when treating gingival recessions (GRs) defects. However, the evidence of the efficacy of TUN in the literature is still to be determined. Therefore, the aim of the present systematic review and meta-analysis was to investigate the predictability of TUN and its comparison to coronally advanced flap (CAF) procedure. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A literature search on PubMed, Cochrane libraries, EMBASE, and hand-searched journals until November 2017 was conducted to identify clinical studies investigating TUN for root coverage procedures...

Objective: Technological advances have provided new alternatives to the analysis of skin flap viability in animal models; however, the interrater validity and reliability of these techniques have yet to be analyzed. The present study aimed to evaluate the interrater validity and reliability of three different methods: weight of paper template (WPT), paper template area (PTA), and photographic analysis. Approach: Sixteen male Wistar rats had their cranially based dorsal skin flap elevated. On the seventh postoperative day, the viable tissue area and the necrotic area of the skin flap were recorded using the paper template method and photo image...

AIM: Extralevator abdominoperineal resection (ELAP) may be complicated by perineal wound healing problems and herniation. We report a consecutive series of 38 such patients with selective use of a fasciocutaneous V-Y buttock advancement flap (BAF). METHOD: Data were collected on a series of patients undergoing ELAP for rectal malignancy between August 2011 and July 2017. Demographics, management and outcomes were recorded prospectively. Perineal wound problems were considered 'major' if they required packing, otherwise being classed as 'minor'...

Edward J Caterson, Justin C McCarty
Face transplant has rapidly advanced since the first operation in 2005, and to date, 40 partial or full-face transplants have been performed. The safety and efficacy of this operation are aided at all phases by supporting technologies. These include advanced imaging techniques to plan the operation, devices to monitor the flap in the immediate perioperative period, and noninvasive imaging and serum markers to monitor for acute and chronic rejection. Some of the technologies, such as those used in the immediate perioperative period, have extensive evidence supporting their use, whereas those to detect acute or chronic rejection remain investigational...

Mucograft is collagen matrix was designed for use in open healing situations due to its compact outer layer. The technique presented in this article is an attempt to avail this attribute for covering open oral wound in guided bone regeneration (GBR) procedure. The essential idea of this technique is to avoid scoring of periosteum, submucosa and muscle layer for buccal flap advancement. Therefore, we used mucograft to cover bone substitute and barrier membrane in GBR surgical procedure. Thus, we avoided periostal-releasing incisions (PRI) and gained reposition of the flap to original level without impairing the attached keratinized gingiva...
