Optimization of the homodigital antegrade island flap for fingertip reconstruction: New dissection sequence based on cadaver study findings.

Orthop Traumatol Surg Res 2020 Apr 18;106(2):335-339. Epub 2020 Mar 18.

Institut Européen de la Main, Hôpital Kirchberg Medical Training Center, 9, rue Edward Steichen, 2540 Luxembourg, Luxembourg.

Introduction: The homodigital antegrade island flap pedicled on the proper palmar digital artery is very useful for covering fingertip defects. However, it has its drawbacks, such as the risk of stiffness due to retractile scars and the need for extensive dissection with long-lasting dysesthesia in some cases. In clinical studies, expanding the skin paddle with V-shaped incisions increases the flap's advancement. Read More

Evolution of epimorphosis in mammals.

J Exp Zool B Mol Dev Evol 2020 Jan 17. Epub 2020 Jan 17.

Department of Veterinary Physiology and Pharmacology, College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas.

Mammalian epimorphic regeneration is rare and digit tip regeneration in mice is the best-studied model for a multi-tissue regenerative event that involves blastema formation. Digit tip regeneration parallels human fingertip regeneration, thus understanding the details of this response can provide insight into developing strategies to expand the potential of human regeneration. Following amputation, the digit stump undergoes a strong histolytic response involving osteoclast-mediated bone degradation that is spatially and temporally linked to the expansion of blastema osteoprogenitor cells.

J Cardiol Cases 2019 Nov 18;20(5):155-157. Epub 2019 Aug 18.

Hyogo Prefectural Awaji Medical Center, Cardiovascular Medicine, 1-1-137 Shioya, Sumoto, Hyogo 656-0021, Japan.

A 58-year-old woman with pallor on her left hand due to chronic hemodialysis presented with a recent intractable skin ulcer on her left 3rd finger; the skin perfusion pressure (SPP) was 19 mmHg. Preoperative angiography revealed an occluded proximal left radial artery, no communication between the ulnar and superficial palmar arteries, several collaterals from the left ulnar to the radial artery, and no visualization of the finger arteries. Successful endovascular therapy to the occluded radial artery increased flow to the arteriovenous fistula (AVF), but not to the fingertips. Read More

Reconstruction of a Thumb Defect Following Subungual Melanoma Resection Using Foucher's Flap.

Acta Dermatovenerol Croat 2019 Mar;27(1):51-52

Assist. Prof. Krešimir Bulić, MD, PhD, University Hospital Centre Zagreb, Department of Plastic Surgery, Kišpatićeva 12 , 10 000 Zagreb, Croatia;

Dear Editor, The main challenge in the treatment of subungual melanoma in situ is obtaining adequate oncological resection while preserving the aesthetics and functionality of the affected digit (1). Traditionally, subungual melanoma in situ was treated with amputation of the distal phalanx of the digit, but management has recently become more conservative, attempting to preserve the full length of the digit (1). Although many recent studies support more conservative treatment by demonstrating successful results of the digit salvaging approach for both in situ and invasive subungual melanoma (1-3), there is still no agreed consensus in terms of the optimal surgical approach for this condition (1).

Department of Translational Research and New Technologies in Medicine and Surgery, University of Pisa, Pisa, Italy.

Background: Homodigital adipofascial flap is a well-established method for treating a distal fingertip defect; nonetheless, its use has some limitations. Reconstruction of fingertip injuries, with radial or ulnar tissue loss, may lead to some difficulties in providing an adequate bone coverage. The standard bipedicled technique did not allow the flap to cover the bone exposure without excessive tension. Read More

GMS Interdiscip Plast Reconstr Surg DGPW 2018 19;7:Doc05. Epub 2018 Oct 19.

Pediatric Surgery, Faculty of Medicine Carl Gustav Carus, TU Dresden, Dresden, Germany.

Human fingertips are able to regenerate soft tissue and skin after amputation injuries with excellent cosmetic and functional results when treated with semiocclusive dressings. Despite bacterial colonizations, proceeding infections are not reported with this management. The underlying mechanisms for this form of regenerative healing as well as for the resilience to infections are not known. Read More

Comparisons between long-term outcomes of the use of reposition flaps and replantations in fingertip amputations.

Ulus Travma Acil Cerrahi Derg 2018 Sep;24(5):462-467

Department of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery, Private Practice, İzmir-Turkey.

Background: Replantation is the gold standard procedure for traumatic amputation of fingertips. Reposition flap procedure is performed using nail-bone complex as a free graft and covering graft site with a flap to preserve original finger length, nail complex, and sensory functions of fingertip in pateints where microsurgical methods cannot be applied. In our study, we aimed to compare the long-term outcomes of patients with amputated fingertips who underwent replantation or reposition flap procedures. Read More

Treatment of a patient suffering from posttraumatic painful neuromas formed at the bilateral digital nerves of the left middle finger using two neurovascular island flaps.

JPRAS Open 2019 Mar 26;19:1-5. Epub 2018 Oct 26.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Kindai University Hospital. 377-2 Oono-higashi, Osaka-sayama, Osaka 589-8511, Japan.

Hand surgeons often encounter painful posttraumatic neuromas in daily practice and the treatment of these neuromas is still challenging for them, because of the tendency of recurrence. The patient injured his left middle finger and was treated by amputation in a previous hospital. After this operation, the patient started to feel pain at the fingertip and complained of severe electric radiating pain when the radial and ulnar ends of the finger were touched. Read More
