Endo-laparoscopic reconstruction of the abdominal wall midline with linear stapler, the THT technique. Early results of the first case series.

Ann Med Surg (Lond) 2019 Feb 12;38:1-7. Epub 2018 Dec 12.

General Surgery Division, Cavalese Hospital, Cavalese, Italy.

Background: Midline primary hernias represent one of the most frequent abdominal wall defects in the adult population and in almost half of the cases they are associated with a rectus abdominis diastasis (RAD).

Ann Chir Plast Esthet 2018 Dec 4. Epub 2018 Dec 4.

Hôpital de la Croix-Rousse, 69004 Lyon, France.

Background: Umbilical necrosis is a well-known complication of abdominoplasty, the risk of this complication can be increased when an associated umbilical hernia requires further dissection in peri-umbilical region, potentially leading to umbilical devascularisation. Multiple minimally invasive open techniques were described to avoid this problem. The combined approach of abdominoplasty with laparoscopic umbilical hernia repair is one promising solution to avoid devascularising the umbilicus. Read More

Incisions and reconstruction approaches for large sarcomas.

Transl Gastroenterol Hepatol 2018 31;3:86. Epub 2018 Oct 31.

Division of Plastic Surgery, Department of Surgery, Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis, IN, USA.

Large intraabdominal, retroperitoneal, and abdominal wall sarcomas provide unique challenges in treatment due to their variable histology, potential considerable size at the time of diagnosis, and the ability to invade into critical structures. Historically, some of these tumors were considered inoperable if surgical access was limited or the consequential defect was unable to be closed primarily as reconstructive options were limited. Over time, there has been a greater understanding of the abdominal wall anatomy and mechanics, which has resulted in the development of new techniques to allow for sound oncologic resections and viable, durable options for abdominal wall reconstruction.

Linea Arcuate Hernia Following Transversus Abdominis Release Incisional Hernia Repair.

Ann Plast Surg 2019 Jan;82(1):85-88

Divisions of Plastic, Reconstructive, and Hand Surgery, Department of Surgery, West Virginia University School of Medicine, Morgantown, WV.

Open abdominal surgery continues to be most commonly complicated by postoperative herniation at the incision line. In 2012, Novitsky et al described a novel hernia repair technique that utilized a transversus abdominis release coupled with a posterior (retrorectus) component separation (TAR-PCS) of the ventral abdominal wall. Early reports attest to the versatility and low recurrence rate of this technique, particularly when repairing large and complex defects. Read More

Incisional Application of Negative Pressure for Nontraumatic Lower Extremity Amputations: A Review.

Surg Technol Int 2018 Nov 23;34. Epub 2018 Nov 23.

eorgetown University School of Medicine, Vice Chair of Research for MedStar Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Center for Wound Healing, MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, Washington, DC.

In the environment of diabetes and peripheral vascular disease (PVD), there is a high risk of incisional complications following amputation, including seroma, hematoma, infection, and dehiscence. Incisional negative-pressure wound therapy (iNPWT) is a novel application of negative-pressure wound therapy (NPWT) that may be able to mitigate these complications and reduce the need for revisional surgery (including higher-level major lower-extremity amputations). It may also facilitate an increased rate of healing and earlier return to function. Read More

Fleur-de-lis Abdominoplasty and Neo-umbilicus.

Clin Plast Surg 2019 Jan;46(1):49-60

Plastic Surgery Division, Botucatu Medical School, Paulista State University, Rua Tomaz Antonio Gonzaga, 160 Lins, São Paulo 16400-465, Brazil.

Body contouring for patients with massive weight loss may demand not only lifting but also some extent of central body tightening to achieve complete tissue readjustment. Although the fleur-de-lis procedure usually achieves nice contouring results, poor visible scars, including umbilical complications, have restricted the indications for the anterior vertical approach. The purpose of this article is to present the authors' experience with the inner scar umbilical reconstruction, enhancing overall results for vertical abdominoplasties. Read More

Abdominal Contouring and Combining Procedures.

Clin Plast Surg 2019 Jan 24;46(1):41-48. Epub 2018 Oct 24.

Department of Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine, Sackler Faculty of Medicine, Tel-Aviv University, Tel-Aviv, Israel; Department of Plastic Surgery, Lenox Hill Hospital, New York, NY, USA.

The abdomen is the most common area of concern among patients with massive weight loss (MWL). Abdominal contouring techniques in the MWL population include panniculectomy, standard abdominoplasty, fleur-de-lis abdominoplasty, reverse abdominoplasty and various combinations of these techniques as part of circumferential procedures such as, circumferential abdominoplasty, and lower body lift. The authors believe that the optimal surgical approach to the abdomen is an integration of the patient aesthetic preferences and the surgeon assessment and experience. Read More

Pain Management and Body Contouring.

Clin Plast Surg 2019 Jan;46(1):33-39

Section of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Department of Surgery, Yale School of Medicine, PO Box 208062, New Haven, CT 06520-8062, USA. Electronic address:

Body contouring procedure is a catchall that includes mastopexy, abdominoplasty, liposuction, and lower body lift. It is well known that optimal postoperative pain control decreases hospitalization length of stay and promotes early ambulation, which in turn decreases the incidence of complications. There have been many innovations in pain control beyond opiate medications, including prolonged administration of local anesthesia, regional blocks, and the use of a multimodal regimen which utilizes nonopiates.
