Wound healing effects of paste type acellular dermal matrix subcutaneous injection.

Arch Plast Surg 2018 Nov 15;45(6):504-511. Epub 2018 Nov 15.

Department of Biomedical Laboratory Science, Daekyeung University, Gyeongsan, Korea.

Background: Acellular dermal matrix (ADM) helps wound healing by stimulating angiogenesis, acting as a chemoattractant for endothelial cells, providing growth factors, and permitting a substrate for fibroblasts to attach. The current standard for using paste-type ADM (CG Paste) in wound healing is direct application over the wounds. The major concerns regarding this method are unpredictable separation from the wounds and absorption into negativepressure wound therapy devices. Read More

Osteocutaneous flaps for head and neck reconstruction: A focused evaluation of donor site morbidity and patient reported outcome measures in different reconstruction options.

Arch Plast Surg 2018 Nov 15;45(6):495-503. Epub 2018 Nov 15.

1Academic Plastic Surgery, Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry, London, UK.

With significant improvements in success rates for free flap reconstruction of the head and neck, attention has turned to donor site morbidity associated with osteocutaneous free flaps. In this review, we address the morbidity associated with harvest of the four most commonly used osteocutaneous flaps; the free fibula flap, the scapula flap, the iliac crest flap and the radial forearm flap. A comprehensive literature search was performed to identify articles relevant to donor site morbidity for these flaps. Read More

A novel technique for large and ptotic breast reconstruction using a latissimus dorsi myocutaneous flap set at the posterior aspect, combined with a silicone implant, following tissue expander surgery.

Arch Plast Surg 2018 Sep 15;45(5):484-489. Epub 2018 Sep 15.

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Keio University, Tokyo, Japan.

Large and ptotic breast reconstruction in patients who are not candidates for a transverse rectus abdominalis myocutaneous flap and revision surgery for the contralateral breast remains challenging. We developed a novel breast reconstruction technique using a latissimus dorsi myocutaneous (LD m-c) flap set at the posterior aspect of the reconstructed breast, combined with an anatomical silicone breast implant (SBI), following tissue expander surgery. We performed the proposed technique in four patients, in whom the weight of the resected tissue during mastectomy was >500 g and the depth of the inframammary fold (IMF) was >3 cm. Read More

Recurrent carpal tunnel syndrome associated with extension of flexor digitorum muscle bellies into the carpal tunnel: A case series.

Arch Plast Surg 2018 Sep 15;45(5):474-478. Epub 2018 Sep 15.

Division of Rheumatology, Department of Medicine, Hartford Hospital, Hartford, CT, USA.

While the success or failure of carpal tunnel release ultimately depends on the interplay of a wide array of factors, a broad understanding of the normal anatomy of the carpal tunnel accompanied by awareness of the possible variations of the individual structures that make up its contents is crucial to optimizing surgical outcomes. While anatomic variants such as extension of the flexor digitorum muscle bellies have been described as a cause of primary carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), there have been no reports depicting its association with recurrent CTS following initially successful carpal tunnel release, a finding with potentially significant prognostic implications that can aid in operative planning. In such cases where muscle extension is identified preoperatively, careful debulking of the muscle belly may be beneficial in improving long-term surgical outcomes. Read More

Mechanical irritation by protruding bone: A possible cause of breast implant rupture.

Arch Plast Surg 2018 Sep 15;45(5):470-473. Epub 2018 Sep 15.

Section of Plastic, Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery, Medcampus III, Kepler University Hospital, Linz, Austria.

Although breast implants have been in clinical use for almost 6 decades and have undergone considerable development during this time, implant rupture is still a dreaded long-term complication. Some obvious external factors, such as trauma, can lead to implant rupture, but many studies have reported a high rate of "spontaneous" implant rupture. Herein, we present two cases with the aim of raising awareness of a new possible cause of "spontaneous" implant rupture: mechanical irritation by bony protrusions. Read More

Incorporating a continuous suction system as a preventive measure against fistula-related complications in head and neck reconstructive surgery.

Arch Plast Surg 2018 Sep 15;45(5):449-457. Epub 2018 Sep 15.

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Institute for Human Tissue Restoration, Gangnam Severance Hospital, Yonsei University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Background: Although previous studies have focused on determining prognostic and causative variables associated with fistula-related complications after head and neck reconstructive surgery, only a few studies have addressed preventive measures. Noting that pooled saliva complicates wound healing and precipitates fistula-related complications, we devised a continuous suction system to remove saliva during early postoperative recovery.

Methods: A continuous suction system was implemented in 20 patients after head and neck reconstructive surgery between January 2012 and October 2017. Read More
