Prelamination of the Radial Forearm Free Flap Using Free Full-Thickness Eyelid Skin Grafts: A New Approach for Intraoral Defect Reconstruction.

Ann Plast Surg 2022 Jul 10;89(1):54-58. Epub 2022 Mar 10.

From the Department for Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Hannover Medical School, Hannover, Germany.

Abstract: Free flap transfer for reconstruction of intraoral defects is a common procedure in oral and maxillofacial surgery. For tumor-related defects, the radial forearm flap is widely used for soft tissue restoration. However, transfer of free skin grafts to the donor site region is often required for wound closure after free flap harvesting, resulting in esthetic disturbances due to shrinkage of the grafted skin, attendant scarring, or mismatches in skin texture or color.

1Department of Anesthesia and Critical Care, King Abdul-Aziz University Hospital, Jeddah, Kingdom Saudi Arabia;.

Ascending thoracic aortic aneurysms are rare in childhood and typically are seen in the setting of connective tissue defect syndromes. These aneurysms may lead to rupture, dissection, or valvular insufficiency, so root replacement is recommended. Here, we present a 17-month-old girl who presented with fever, cough, and pericardial effusion. Read More

A novel hotspot of gelsolin instability triggers an alternative mechanism of amyloid aggregation.

Comput Struct Biotechnol J 2021 19;19:6355-6365. Epub 2021 Nov 19.

Istituto di Biofisica, Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche, Milano, Italy.

Gelsolin comprises six homologous domains, named G1 to G6. Single point substitutions in this protein are responsible for AGel amyloidosis, a hereditary disease causing progressive corneal lattice dystrophy, cutis laxa, and polyneuropathy. Although several different amyloidogenic variants of gelsolin have been identified, only the most common mutants present in the G2 domain have been thoroughly characterized, leading to clarification of the functional mechanism.

Case Report: Occurrence of Severe Thoracic Aortic Aneurysms (Involving the Ascending, Arch, and Descending Segments) as a Result of Fibulin-4 Deficiency: A Rare Pathology With Successful Management.

Front Cardiovasc Med 2021 24;8:756765. Epub 2021 Nov 24.

Department of Cardiology, Government General Hospital, Ernakulam, India.

Aortic diseases requiring surgery in childhood are distinctive and rare. Very few reports in the literature account for the occurrence of multiple thoracic aortic aneurysms in the same pediatric patient because of a genetic cause. We report a rare occurrence of severe thoracic aortic aneurysms (involving the ascending, arch and descending aortic segments) with severe aortic insufficiency in a 7-year-old female child secondary to the extremely rare and often lethal genetic disorder, cutis laxa.

Echocardiography 2021 12 29;38(12):2095-2099. Epub 2021 Nov 29.

Paediatric Cardiology Division, Department of Pediatrics, King Abdulaziz University Hospital, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

Aortic aneurysms are rare in the pediatric age group and are commonly caused by genetic disorders associated with vasculopathy, weakness and fragility of arterial walls with progressive dilatation or even rupture. We reported a giant aortic aneurysm involving the ascending aorta and aortic arch in a 20-month-old girl with autosomal recessive cutis laxa type 1B (ARCL1B) who presented with hemorrhagic pericardial effusion and tamponade (impending rupture). Successful surgical repair has been done through excision of the aneurysmal part and replacement by Hemashield graft with preservation of the aortic valve. Read More

Collagens are the most abundant components of the extracellular matrix (ECM) and many types of soft tissues. Elastin is another major component of certain soft tissues, such as arterial walls and ligaments. It is an insoluble polymer of the monomeric soluble precursor tropoelastin, and the main component of elastic fibers in matrix tissue where it provides elastic recoil and resilience to a variety of connective tissues, e.
