Pedicled pectoralis major flap in head and neck reconstruction - our experience.

Acta Chir Plast 2019 ;60(1):26-29

Introduction: The pedicled pectoralis major flaps are still harvested and mainly indicated for reconstruction in the polymorbid patient. Other indications are combinations of pedicled pectoralis major flaps with free microvascular flap, salvage reconstruction following complications, free flap failure and recurrent or extended primary disease.

Materials And Methods: We describe the pedicled pectoralis major flap in 18 patients operated on at the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Olomouc from 1st January 2014 to 1st December 2016. Read More

Pedicled pectoralis major flap in head and neck reconstruction - technique and overview.

Acta Chir Plast 2019 ;60(1):14-21

The pedicled pectoralis major flap was the original workhorse flap for head and neck reconstruction. Over time, it became the secondary choice for oropharyngeal reconstruction with the implementation of free-soft tissue transfers. Nowadays, a polymorbid patient is primarily indicated for pedicled pectoralis major flap reconstruction, other indications include combinations of pedicled pectoralis major flap with free microvascular flap, salvage reconstruction due to complications, salvage reconstruction due to free flap failure and salvage reconstruction due to recurrent or extended primary disease.

Image Possibilities of the Peripheral Nerve Tumor Using Magnetic Resonance Imaging - Case Report.

Acta Chir Plast 2019 ;60(1):9-13

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) plays a crucial role in the diagnosis and morphological analysis of peripheral nerve tumours (PNTs). In recent years, a number of novel MRI sequences such as MR neurography (MRN), diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) or MR tractography (MRT) have emerged extending the range of conventional MRI techniques. These advanced sequences are able to provide detailed information concerning PNTs structure, including the course and function of individual neural fascicles. Read More

Use of licap and ltap flaps for breast reconstruction.

Acta Chir Plast 2019 ;60(1):4-8

Breast conserving surgery has been reserved for patients with favorable proportion between tumor dimensions and breast size. Introduction of local flaps from the lateral thoracic region has widened the indications for breast conserving surgery, by allowing surgeons to perform wider excisions, thus yet be able to ensure tumor-free surgical margins and a good aesthetic result. We have used lateral intercostal perforator flaps and flaps harvested on the lateral thoracic artery and lateral thoracic artery axial flap in patients with small breasts and an unfavorable tumor to breast size proportion.

CURRENT CONCEPTS IN PERIPHERAL NERVE INJURY REPAIR.

Acta Chir Plast Fall 2017;59(2):85-91

Even though reconstructive surgery of the nerves underwent significant progress due to experimental and clinical research over the past 40 years, injuries to the peripheral nerves still remain a great challenge for microsurgery. Literature results of these procedures are often evaluated as very good but the final result is often characterized by an achievement of only a useful and not full function, which is rather rare. It is not only a simple suture; the success is also based on functional regeneration and interconnection of the nerve fibres. Read More

Care for burn patients is defined in most developed countries as an independent multidisciplinary specialty (burn medicine) and it is concentrated to specialized units, which are sufficiently staffed with appropriate space area and equipment. Since the 50s of the previous century in the former Czechoslovakia, there were five such units, three of which were in the Czech Republic (Prague, Ostrava, Brno). The specialty successfully developed and achieved prestige also abroad, mainly due to uninterrupted contacts with the foreign units. Read More

MICRONEEDLING - A FORM OF COLLAGEN INDUCTION THERAPY - OUR FIRST EXPERIENCES.

Acta Chir Plast Summer 2017;59(1):33-36

Introduction: Microneedling (percutaneous collagen induction therapy) is a new promising miniinvasive therapeutic method for the treatment of skin alterations of different aetiology, including burn scars. Since 2016, it is also available at our department. The microtraumatization of scars with the Dermaroller® leads to an activation of the healing cascade, activation of growth factors, which activate cell proliferation in the wound, increased synthesis and deposit of collagen - elastin complex with successive transformation of collagen III to collagen I, to neoangiogenesis and thus to accelerated scar remodelling.

Background: The preoperative perforator mapping is an important step in autologous breast reconstruction, making the flap raising safer, more predictable and time-saving. Although the Doppler exam has proven to be less accurate in locating perforators compared with colour duplex sonography and CTA, it will probably remain of importance in clinical practice.

Onychomatricoma is a rare benign fibroepithelial tumour that originates from the nail matrix and can affect the nail bed of fingers and toes. Onychomatricoma may represent a premalignant lesion and although the etiology is still not fully understood, a previous finger trauma is considered the main predisposing factor. Unlike previous scientific articles we report a case of a "non traumatic" onychomatricoma in a 60 years old woman underlining the clinical and histological features to distinguish this uncommon lesion from other lesions originating from the nail apparatus.

PIP IMPLANTS--CURRENT KNOWLEDGE AND LITERATURE REVIEW.

Non-compliance with the production process and use of non-certified materials du- ring production of PIP implants opened an extensive debate regarding regulation and control mechanisms during their production, but the question of health safety of breast implants in general was also reopened. Production of breast implants is subject to various control mechanisms in each country and it is necessary to unify and coordinate such mechanisms. PIP implants were on the market for more than 15 years and in this period the production process and used materials were being changed purposely and without control, which resulted in production of implants with poor quality capsule filled with non-certified silicon gel.

Our model, consisting in the creation of several anastomoses in a row, helps the novice surgeon to assess his microsurgical level and to improve his capacity. Indeed, this leads to an amplification of the trainee surgeon's mistakes, which add up to each other as the anastomoses are performed. Read More
