Adenoid cystic carcinoma of the head and neck area is a rare malignant tumor with acceptable short-term but mediocre long-term prognosis. Radical tumor excision with clear resection margins, and sometimes resection of the facial nerve due to perineural growth, remains the fundamental therapy. We present 3 distinct clinical cases and discuss the current therapeutic options with special focus on plastic-reconstructive techniques. For reconstruction, the full armament of local and free flaps, as well as prosthetics, may be necessary...

BACKGROUND: The free lumbar artery perforator flap has recently been introduced as a potentially valuable option for autologous breast reconstruction in a subset of patients. Up to date, few anatomical studies, exploring the lumbar region as a donor site for perforator- based flaps, have been conducted. METHODS: An anatomical study of the position of the dominant lumbar artery perforator was performed, using the preoperative computed tomographic angiography images of 24 autologous breast reconstruction patients...

INTRODUCTION/OBJECTIVE: Proximal hypospadias is one of the most challenging conditions that pediatric urologists have to deal with. Many procedures have been devised over the years, but nothing has been proven to be the best option. Although there have been some attempts at correcting severe hypospadias in one procedure, most have advocated a staged approach. The classic approach - laying penile skin or a graft within a split glans followed by glanuloplasty at the second stage - by definition requires two operations on the glans...

INTRODUCTION: Donor site seroma formation and prolonged drainage duration are common complications of using latissimus dorsi musculocutaneous (LDMC) flaps. The present retrospective study aimed to investigate the effect of types of back flap harvest on drainage duration and seroma formation rates. METHODS: Adult patients (n = 155) who underwent reconstruction with a latissimus dorsi flap from January 2010 to October 2015 were included in the study, of which 54 patients underwent breast reconstruction with a pedicled LDMC flap (LD breast group), 80 patients underwent an LDMC flap transfer for purposes other than breast reconstruction (LD nonbreast group), and 21 patients underwent soft tissue reconstruction with a thoracodorsal artery perforator (TAP) flap (TAP group)...

The results obtaining with breast reconstruction surgery are not always satisfactory for the patients. Reconstruction with pure latissimus dorsi flap is useful option and due to endoscopic harvest large scar on the back can be avoided. The skin sparing mastectomy and even the sentinel lymph node biopsy or lymphadenectomy can be performed using a single incision in the axilla. Also the immediate reconstruction with endoscopically assisted harvest of the latissimus dorsi muscle flap in selective cases can be done using the same incision...

BACKGROUND/AIM: Resection of tumors from the groin and thigh regions with safe margins often results in significant soft tissue defects, which preclude primary closure. This study presents a series of rectus abdominis myocutaneous flaps for irradiated thigh and groin wounds with the purpose of evaluating the efficacy and outcomes of these flaps in this population. MATERIALS AND METHODS: From 2008 to 2015, all patients who underwent resection of thigh or groin region tumors and reconstruction with an inferiorly based rectus abdominis myocutaneous flap were retrospectively identified...

BACKGROUND/AIM: The pedicled transverse rectus abdominis myocutaneous (TRAM) flap remains widely used as a breast reconstruction technique. The bipedicled TRAM flap is not as preferable as it was formerly, mainly because of its donor site complications. However, in a number of situations, a bipedicled TRAM flap may be the only alternative. Therefore, a three-layer primary closure technique used with bipedicled TRAM flap breast reconstructions that can avoid donor site complications without using a mesh is presented...

BACKGROUND: Large Achilles tendon defects pose a treatment challenge. The standard treatment with a turndown flap requires a large extensile incision, puts the sural nerve at risk, and demands slow, careful rehabilitation. Dual allograft semitendinosus reconstruction is a new clinical alternative that has the theoretical advantages of a smaller incision, less dissection, and a stronger construct that may allow for faster rehabilitation. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: In a cadaver biomechanical model, we compared the dual allograft semitendinosus reconstruction with the myofascial turndown in terms of (1) mechanical strength and resistance to deformation and (2) failure mechanisms in reconstruction of large segmental Achilles defects...
