Transposition flap

Mona Taleb, Lydia Choi, Steve Kim
BACKGROUND: After wide local excision of cutaneous melanoma, large defects not amenable to simple primary closure are often covered with skin grafts. We report our experience using the rhomboid and keystone flaps to immediately close large axial and extremity wounds after potentially curative surgery for non-head and neck melanomas. METHODS: Between January 2011 and September 2016, demographic, operative, pathologic, and outcome data were prospectively collected on 60 patients who underwent wide local excision of melanoma followed by immediate flap reconstruction...

Microcystic adnexal carcinoma (MAC) is a rare malignant cutaneous adenocarcinoma that typically occurs in the head and neck, particularly at the central face. There are only slightly more than 300 patients reported worldwide, and most patients occur in Caucasians. A 72-year-old man was referred to our hospital for definitive treatment of known MAC from previous biopsy. Wide excision of nasal tip and reconstruction of nasal defect with paramedian forehead flap and nasolabial flap transposition were performed rather than conventional Mohs surgery, due to grossly evident disease...

BACKGROUND: The facial artery myomucosal (FAMM) island flap is a cheek flap, pedicled on the facial artery and suitable for small to medium-sized reconstructions of the oral cavity and neighboring areas. A novel transposition of the flap to the hypopharynx after laryngectomy is presented in this report. METHODS: A 58-year-old man, previously irradiated, was laryngopharyngectomized because of a new supraglottic carcinoma. An unexpected need for a flap was solved by tunneling a FAMM island flap lateral to the mandible...

PURPOSE: We report the clinical outcome after coverage for soft-tissue defect on the medial foot and ankle with an adipofascial fold-down flap based on the posterior tibial artery perforator branch proximal to the defect. MATERIALS: Nine patients (five males and four females) with soft-tissue defects on the medial foot and ankle area underwent the procedure from March 2009 to May 2014. The average age of the patients was 54 years (range, 8-82). The pivot point of transposition of this flap is the posterior tibial artery perforator proximal to the defect...

INTRODUCTION: Repair of large defects of the lower eyelid can be difficult. A common procedure performed to address these defects is a Hughes flap. This procedure has a number of disadvantages: The eye is closed postoperatively, a second stage is required, and the edge of the flap is often erythematous. The purpose of this paper is to describe a one-stage procedure for the repair of large full-thickness defects of the lower lid as an alternative to a Hughes flap. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This is a retrospective study of patients who underwent the described procedure...

BACKGROUND: After excision of a pilonidal sinus, several treatment options are possible, but no gold standard has been established. A literature review revealed no study comparing the costs and time off work after either secondary wound closure or treatment with a Limberg transposition flap. The aim of this study was to focus on these aspects by analysing the patients treated at the KlinikumStadtSoest. METHOD: Sixty patients with pilonidal sinus after excision were treated either by secondary wound closure or Limberg transposition flap at the KlinikumStadtSoest between 2011 and 2012...

BACKGROUND: Resection of cranial tumors involving both bone and scalp tissue may require the recruitment of soft tissue using a flap above the bone reconstruction. When a transposition flap has been chosen, the alopecia zone on the donor site may be difficult to treat afterward. Scalp expansion is the gold standard in these situations, but this has never been described above cranial implants. We report the first case of a patient who underwent a scalp tissue expansion above a custom-made hydroxyapatite cranial implant to correct sequelar alopecia...

This article presents the case of a 53 years old patient, with ulcerated and infected dermatofibrosarcoma, extended on the anterolateral side of the left knee. The postexcisional defect, exposing patella, was covered through a regional cutaneous flap of the distal third of the thigh, upper lateral genicular artery-based, measuring 20/10 cm, together with expanded free skin split grafts, applied in proximal third of the leg and distal third of the left thigh. Surgical stages and favorable postoperative evolution are exposed...

BACKGROUND: Based on the angiogenetic and stimulating effects of bone healing and formation of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), the present study was designed to assess the efficacy of VEGF gene application in the management of experimentally induced osteomyelitis. METHODS: Thirty-two male Sprague Dawley rats were divided into 4 groups, and osteomyelitis was induced in the left tibial bones. Group 1 (n=8) was designated as a control group, and, after the induction of osteomyelitis, no treatment was applied for a period of 4 weeks...

OBJECTIVE: Premature craniosynostosis of the lambdoid suture is rare. The use of differential diagnosis to rule out positional occipital plagiocephaly is crucial. Nevertheless, once diagnosed, lambdoid craniosynostosis requires corrective surgery to prevent intracranial harm and aesthetic stigma by significant dyscrania. Operative correction of the lambdoid fusion is often performed by suturectomy and helmet therapy, total occipital remodeling interventions, transposition of occipital bone flaps, or occipital advancement procedures either with or without distraction osteogenesis...

BACKGROUND: During military operations, one aspect of a plastic surgeon's work is to restore extensive and deep wound defects in a short period of time and provide a high degree of functional recovery to the damaged area. Because many injuries caused by military operations cannot be closed using a primary suture, the specialist has to select another surgical approach to close the wound defect. Surgeons must select methods that not only cover the extensive wound defect in 1 step but also allow skin coverage that is anatomically, functionally, and visually similar to the surrounding tissues to reduce the length of the hospital stay and ensure optimal functional recovery of the damaged organ...

Functional and aesthetical reconstruction, especially of the upper lip after ablative tumor surgery, can be very challenging. The skin of the lip might be sufficiently reconstructed by transpositional flaps from the nasolabial or facial area. Large defects of the lip mucosa, including the vestibule, are even more challenging due to the fact that flaps from the inner lining of the oral cavity often lead to functional impairments. We present a case of multiple vermilion and skin resections of the upper lip. At the last step, we had to resect even the whole vermilion mucosa, including parts of the oral mucosa of the vestibule, leaving a bare orbicularis oris muscle...

BACKGROUND: Loss of olfaction has been considered inevitable in endoscopic endonasal resection of olfactory groove meningiomas. Olfaction preservation may be feasible through an endonasal unilateral transcribriform approach, with the option for expansion using septal transposition and contralateral preservation of the olfactory apparatus. METHODS: An expanded unilateral endonasal transcribriform approach with septal transposition was performed in five cadaver heads...

BACKGROUND: The correct timing and technique of neural tube defect (NTD) repairs significantly decreases the morbidity and mortality of NTD cases. However, infections related to the surgery are still common. We investigated the effects of topical rifampicin (RIF) combined with routine prophylaxis in newborns with open NTD. METHODS: Eighty-six patients who had undergone NTD surgery were included in the retrospective study. Thirty patients who started on topical RIF before surgery made up the study group, and 56 cases that were not administered topical RIF made up the control group...

BACKGROUND: Open window thoracotomy (OWT) as well as its closure are challenging. Transposition of omental pedicle and muscle flaps is often performed for OWT closure; however, the better technique among the two is unknown. The purpose of this series was to evaluate the outcomes of using both omental pedicle and muscle flaps for the aforementioned closure. METHODS: This was an observational retrospective cohort study on 27 consecutive patients who underwent OWT closure at a single institution between January 2005 and December 2014...
