PURPOSE: Rectovaginal fistulas are difficult to treat completely, especially when patients present with a history of multiple surgeries and radiation therapy. We aimed to evaluate the efficacy of gracilis muscle flap transposition to treat rectovaginal fistula. METHODS: We performed a retrospective chart review of all gracilis muscle transposition cases and other procedures between January 2009 and July 2016. RESULTS: Total 53 cases were reviewed...

Skin necrosis is a rare complication after thoracomyoplasty and usually needs conservative treatment. We described positive findings with surgical approach. A 54-year-old man showed bronchopleural fistula after undergoing right pneumonectomy for lung cancer, treated with thoracomyoplasty. On the 20th postoperative day, a skin wound lesion was noted, whose deterioration required a skin flap transposition. Patient was discharged from hospital on the 7th postoperative day and did not show relapse at the 7th year follow-up...

Defects involving specialised areas with characteristic anatomical features, such as the nipple, upper eyelid, and lip, benefit greatly from the use of sharing procedures. The vulva, a complex 3-dimensional structure, can also be reconstructed through a sharing procedure drawing upon the contralateral vulva. In this report, we present the interesting case of a patient with chronic, massive, localised lymphedema of her left labia majora that was resected in 2011. Five years later, she presented with squamous cell carcinoma over the left vulva region, which is rarely associated with chronic lymphedema...

Nowadays, the transposition of microvascular free flaps is the most popular method for management of head and neck defects. However, not all patients are suitable candidates for free flap reconstruction. In addition, not every defect requires a free flap transfer to achieve good functional results. The aim of this study was to assess whether pedicled flap reconstruction of head and neck defects is inferior to microvascular free flap reconstruction in terms of complications, functionality and prognosis. The records of consecutive patients who underwent free flap or pedicled flap reconstruction after head and neck cancer ablation from 2006 to 2015, from a single surgeon, in the AOUC Hospital, Florence Italy were analysed...

BACKGROUND: The tendency of recurrence or progression is a frequent problem in Dupuytren's disease. The management of recurrence is adapted to the individual situation and the patient's needs. In mild cases a non-operative approach is recommended. Revision surgery is reserved for disabling situations with acceptable circulation and sensation in absence of dystrophy. It is complicated by a combined formation of scar tissue and new cords. This increases the risk of soft tissue loss and injuries to the neurovascular bundles, which impair sensation and circulation and may result in loss of the finger...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The aim of this study was to describe the most recent technical nuances for resection and reconstruction of Grade 1 and 2 laryngeal chondrosarcomas, with a special emphasis on those located at the level of the cricoid plate, which is the site of origin of the vast majority of these rare tumours. RECENT FINDINGS: Even though inherently based on retrospective small clinical series or anecdotal case reports, a number of studies have been recently published focusing on conservative transoral and open-neck surgical procedures aimed at an oncologically sound removal of the tumour together with organ and function preservation...

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...

CASE REPORT: A 3-year-old male neutered Domestic Shorthair cat was evaluated for a skin mass of approximately 2 × 3 cm arising from the right dorsolateral aspect of the tail at the junction between the proximal and middle one-thirds of the tail length. Incisional biopsy sample was consistent with granulomatous inflammation. The granuloma was surgically excised with 5 mm margins of normal skin. The resulting defect was closed using an axial pattern flap based on a cutaneous branch of the dorsal perineal artery and augmented by a local subdermal plexus 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...

Thomas Frisch
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...

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...
