BACKGROUND: The purposes of this study were to report a 7-year experience of microvascular reconstruction of scalp defects, compare flap type and outcomes, and evaluate the implications of short and long term complications. METHODS: Following institutional review board approval, a single surgeon's patients requiring microvascular scalp reconstruction were retrospectively reviewed from 2005 to 2011. Flap choice, complications, and outcomes were statistically analyzed...

The lateral thigh flap based on the second and third perforator of profunda femoris vessel has not become very popular. We describe a technique of flow-through pedicle for this flap. The flow-through technique makes this flap very simple to transfer. The flap was used successfully in 6 cases for reconstruction for defects in the leg and forearm. The flow-through pedicle is ideal for lower limb reconstruction. The anastomosis becomes very easy and safe, even if the recipient vessels are deep in the intermuscular septum...

Parry-Romberg syndrome is characterized by a progressive hemifacial atrophy involving the skin, subcutaneous tissue, and underlying bone structures. The aim of plastic surgical treatment is to restore a harmonious and symmetrical appearance to facial deficits. The authors report that 17 patients with Parry-Romberg syndrome were treated with combined techniques in multiple stages. Revascularized free flaps, including 12 anteriolateral thigh adipofascial flaps and two latissimus dorsi flaps, were used for soft tissue augmentations in the first stage...

OBJECTIVE: To discuss the advantages of two flap contouring methods and to explore the best choice for the flap contouring. METHODS: From March 2002 to March 2006, 59 patients were admitted for a flap-contouring operation. Of the 59 patients, 40 (32 males, 8 females; average age, 34 years) underwent the multiphase lipectomy (the multiphase lipectomy group). The original flaps included the abdominal flap in 19 patients, the groin flap in 10, the thoracic flap in 4, the free anteriolateral thigh flap in 6, and the cross leg flap in 1...

We report two patients who developed skin necrosis following an intramuscular injection of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug into the anteriolateral area of their thigh. Both patients required further multiple operations and one developed life threatening septicaemia. They were left with disfiguring scars. Skin necrosis, although rare, is a recognized adverse reaction to intramuscular non-steroidal anti-inflammatory injections. It is likely that the injections were, unwittingly, administered subcutaneously...
