Reconstruction of Complex Abdominal Wall Defect With Autogenous Pedicled Demucosalized Seromuscular Flap.

Ann Plast Surg 2020 Jun;84(6):697-699

From the Division of Plastic Surgery, Department of Surgery, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN.

Abdominal wall reconstruction is indicated when 1 or more of the abdominal wall components (skin, fascia, or muscle) are either injured or absent. When faced with defects requiring flap reconstruction, the decision regarding flap choice should take into consideration the volume of soft tissue required, the extent of the defect, donor site morbidity, and prior surgical scars that affect flap vascularity. We present a case of an abdominal wall defect with limited reconstructive options in which a spare ileal bowel segment was filleted to create a seromuscular flap for improving the abdominal wall blood supply.

Risk Factors Associated With the Progression From Acute to Chronic Neuropathic Pain After Burn-Related Injuries.

Ann Plast Surg 2020 Jun;84(6S Suppl 5):S382-S385

From the Departments of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.

Background: Pain, unrelated to the initial thermal trauma itself, can result after burn injury and prolong the recovery/rehabilitation phase of the patient's care. This pain, after discharge from the burn unit, may be acute and self-limiting or chronic and contribute to long-term patient morbidity. The purposes of this study were to compare burn patients who had, after discharge from the burn unit, only acute pain with burn patients who developed chronic, neuropathic pain (CNP) and to determine risks factors for progression from acute to chronic pain in the setting of a burn center.

Correction of Severe Short Nose Using a Costal Cartilage Extension Framework.

Ann Plast Surg 2020 May 6. Epub 2020 May 6.

From the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, The Ninth Affiliated Hospital of Shanghai Jiaotong Medicine University, Shanghai, PR China.

Background: Various techniques for the aesthetic correction of short noses have been described, but the selection of the adequate graft material remains controversial. Previous reports have mainly focused on the application of septal cartilage or alloplastic materials for short nose elongation, but the lengthening effect is often unsatisfactory for severe short noses. We propose costal cartilage as an alternative treatment for short noses, describe the technique, and discuss outcomes, patient selection, and complications based on our 15-year experience. Read More

Nasal Tip Rotation by Exclusive Superficial Musculoaponeurotic System Deep Medial Ligament Management: An Objective Evaluation.

Ann Plast Surg 2020 Apr 22. Epub 2020 Apr 22.

From the Otolaryngology, Clinical and Sciences Translational Medicine Department, University of Rome "Tor Vergata".

The nasal tip constitutes the mobile portion of the nose, in direct contraposition to the pyramid that is a fixed structure. Its configuration, position, and shape are derived mainly from the outline and from the thickness of the wing cartilages, important elements of the nasal tip, that together with skin and subcutaneous tissue can deeply influence the configuration and dynamics of this section of the nose as well. In reshaping the nasal tip, 2 fundamental concepts must be considered: projection and rotation; these may be modified, acting on the nasal cartilaginous framework and/or on the superficial nasal fibromuscular structure (SMAS).

Background: Preoperative localization of the perforators allows precise planning of the flap design and improves surgical efficiency. Recently, infrared thermography is introduced as a reliable alternative, where the perforator corresponds to the "hot spot" on the thermogram. This study aims to compare the application of color Doppler ultrasound (CDU) and infrared thermography in preoperative perforator mapping of the anterolateral thigh (ALT) perforator flap. Read More

Free Medial Plantar Flap Versus Free Dorsal Myocutaneous Flap for the Reconstruction of Traumatic Foot Sole Defects.

Ann Plast Surg 2020 May;84(5S Suppl 3):S178-S185

From the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, First Medical Center of PLA General Hospital.

Background: Trauma can cause large defects in the weight-bearing foot sole. The reconstruction of such defects poses a major challenge in providing a flap that is durable, sensate, and stable. The pedicled medial plantar flap has been commonly used for reconstructing heel and plantar forefoot defects; however, the ipsilateral instep region is usually compromised by trauma. Read More

Different Surgical Reconstructions for Femoral Nerve Injury: A Clinical Study on 9 Cases.

Ann Plast Surg 2020 May;84(5S Suppl 3):S171-S177

From the Department of Hand Surgery, Huashan Hospital, Fudan University.

Background: Femoral nerve palsy can cause loss in quadriceps function and knee extension disability, which may lead to severe lower extremity impairment. The obturator nerve trunk transfer in the pelvic, the obturator nerve mortal branches transfer out of the pelvic, along with nerve graft, was introduced years ago to restore femoral nerve function. However, the outcomes of these procedures have never been compared. Read More

Extracellular Vesicles Derived From Human Adipose-Derived Stem Cell Prevent the Formation of Hypertrophic Scar in a Rabbit Model.

Ann Plast Surg 2020 May;84(5):602-607

From the Department of Plastic Surgery, The Second Affiliated Hospital of Nanchang University, Jiangxi, P.R. China.

Background: Preventing scar formation during wound healing has important clinical implications. Numerous studies have indicated that adipose-derived stem cell culture mediums, which are rich in cytokines and extracellular vesicles (EVs), regulate matrix remodeling and prevent scar formation after wound healing. Therefore, using a rabbit scar model, we tried to demonstrate which factor in adipose-derived stem cell culture mediums plays a major role in preventing scar formation (EVs or cytokines), as well as revealing the underlying mechanism.

Open Reduction and Internal Fixation and Intraoperative Exploration of the Superior Retinacular Arterial System in Young Adults Garden III Femoral Neck Fracture: A 10 Case Report.

Ann Plast Surg 2020 May;84(5S Suppl 3):S222-S224

From the Department of Orthopedics, Affiliated Zhongshan Hospital of Dalian University, Dalian, Liaoning.

At present, there is no uniform standard for the treatment of femoral neck fractures (FNFs) in young adults, and the current strategy is inclined to the native hip joint preservation. Femoral neck fractures in young adult are mostly caused by high-energy violence, and the blood supply of femoral head is severely damaged, which is prone to secondary femoral head avascular necrosis. In this article, we report 10 cases of young adult Garden III FNF treated with open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) and microsurgical exploration of the superior retinacular vessels from 2015 to 2018, to more intuitively understand the involvement of superior retinacular vessels after displaced FNF in young adults.

Clinical Follow-up Study of the Reconstruction of the Femoral Head With Transferred Vascularized Greater Trochanter Bone Graft for Association Research Circulation Osseous III-IV Osteonecrosis of the Femoral Head.

Ann Plast Surg 2020 May;84(5S Suppl 3):S215-S221

From the Department of Orthopedics, Affiliated Zhongshan Hospital of Dalian University, Dalian, Liaoning, China.

Purpose: The aim of the study was to investigate the curative efficacy of osteonecrosis of the femoral head (ONFH) in a hip-preserving operative approach, by transferring a vascularized greater trochanter graft combined with osteotomy of the upper third of femoral head, in an attempt to seek an innovative approach for patients who experienced middle- to late-stage ONFH with femoral head's weight-bearing area severely collapsed.

Method: Our research included a total of 23 patients (23 hips) who accepted hip-preserving surgery by reconstructing the femoral head with transferred vascularized greater trochanter bone graft for ONFH from January 2013 to December 2017. The definition of reconstructing the femoral head is that we do the osteotomy on the upper third of the femoral head with weight-bearing area severely collapsed, and the remnant femoral head requires a hemispherical bone graft to recover the shape.
