Correction of Tanzer Type IIB Constricted Ears via Z-shaped Double V-Y Advancement Flaps.

Ann Plast Surg 2019 Mar;82(3):284-288

From the Department of Burn and Plastic Surgery, West China Hospital, Sichuan University, Chengdu, China.

Background: Correction of Tanzer type IIB constricted ears requires sufficient expansion of the auricular skin to cover the reconstructed cartilaginous framework. To obtain an adequately sized skin cover, skin flap transposition from periauricular donor sites has been described; however, it remains challenging to obtain enough skin to enable satisfactory reconstruction. Herein, we describe a novel method that uses 2 local flaps comprising superoauricular, retroauricular, and preauricular soft tissue to expand the skin cover and correct Tanzer type IIB deformity.

Department of Surgical Oncology, Institut Claudius Regaud-Institut Universitaire du Cancer de Toulouse (IUCT)-Oncopole, 1 avenue Irène Joliot-Curie, 31059, Toulouse Cedex 9, France.

Opinion Statement: The main advancement in the surgical treatment of early cervical cancer has been a de-escalation in the radical surgical approach of early stage disease. Similarly, sentinel lymph node detection with cervical tracer injection can be performed alone in microscopic tumors (stage IA) while additional lymphadenectomy is still performed in macroscopic tumors (IB1 and IIA). Parametrial resection has been progressively reduced in tumors less than 2 cm, and simple procedures, conservative (trachelectomy) or not (simple hysterectomy), are currently being evaluated in several phase III trials.

J Craniofac Surg 2018 Nov;29(8):2182-2185

Division of Plastic Surgery, University of Miami Hospital, Miami, FL.

Composite frontal scalp defects involving the frontal bone and full thickness scalp can pose a reconstructive challenge. Often, they necessitate the use of microsurgical free tissue transfer, which can be physiologically demanding in high-risk patients with multiple comorbidities, with exposure to prolonged general anesthesia time and increased surgical morbidity. The experience of a single surgeon was reviewed with reconstruction of composite frontal scalp wounds in 4 patients with structural framework and a bipedicled scalp advancement (ie, "bucket handle") flap, thus obviating the need for free tissue transfer.

A Fitoussi

Ann Chir Plast Esthet 2018 Nov 7;63(5-6):381-401. Epub 2018 Sep 7.

Centre du sein, 18, rue Pierre-et-Marie-Curie, 75005 Paris, France. Electronic address:

Breast reconstruction by prosthesis remains the most used in the world and even tends to increase again at the expense of musculo-cutaneous flaps since the systematic use, in recent years, of adipocytes grafts (lipofilling) before and/or after in place of the implant. This simpler technique is often preferred by patients who want to avoid scars and pain away from the chest area. The use of different implant forms, fat injection, abdominal advancement flaps, biological or synthetic matrices can significantly improve the results of these reconstructions in secondary or immediate.
