Multiple Primary Cutaneous Melanomas in a Bulgarian Patient: The Possible Role of One Step Melanoma Surgery (OSMS) As the Most Adequate Treatment Approach!

Open Access Maced J Med Sci 2018 Nov 21;6(11):2155-2160. Epub 2018 Nov 21.

Medical Institute of Ministry of Interior (MVR), Department of Dermatology, Venereology and Dermatologic Surgery, General Skobelev Nr 79, Sofia, Bulgaria.

Background: Simultaneous occurrence of multiple primary melanomas is a rare, however possible phenomenon, and it is believed that older, male, white, Atypical Mole Syndrome carriers (sporadic and familial) are part of the possible risk factors for its occurrence. In these patients, it is possible to observe involutional changes or (partial/complete) regression of melanocytic lesions, which are likely to be caused by the generation of a spontaneous immune reaction against specific tumour antigens.

Case Report: A 58-year-old male patient is presented with two melanocytic lesions located in the right clavicle (subclavicular area) and left the scapular area that meets clinically and dermatoscopically the requirements for malignant melanoma. Read More

Service d'Hépato-gastroentérologie, Faculté de Médecine et de Pharmacie de Fès, Université Sidi Mohammed Ben Abdellah, Fès, Maroc.

Many disorders of the digestive tract cause cutaneous manifestations that may be an indication of an underlying condition; hence dermatologist plays a key role in recommending that the patient see a gastroenterologist. Conversely, gastroenterologist often sees patients with mucocutaneous lesions suggesting possible association with well-known digestive disorders. Chronic inflammatory bowel diseases are the typical example of this essential collaboration between the two specialities. Read More

Complex Open Abdominal Wall Reconstruction: Management of the Skin and Subcutaneous Tissue.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2018 09;142(3 Suppl):125S-132S

Los Angeles, Calif.; and Columbus, Ohio From the Division of Plastic and Maxillofacial Surgery, Children's Hospital Los Angeles; and Department of Plastic Surgery, The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.

Optimal skin and soft tissue management in complex open abdominal wall reconstruction is an integral element of the operation to achieve optimal outcomes. Failure to provide stable, well-vascularized soft tissue coverage over the hernia repair can jeopardize the reconstruction through association with nonhealing wounds, mesh exposure, and even possible hernia recurrence. The literature has shown that careful attention to the skin and soft tissue, especially when part of a multidisciplinary approach to complex abdominal wall reconstruction, improves patient outcomes significantly.

Risk stratification of sentinel node-positive melanoma patients defines surgical management and adjuvant therapy treatment considerations.

Eur J Cancer 2018 06 13;96:25-33. Epub 2018 Apr 13.

Department of Surgical Oncology, Erasmus MC Cancer Institute, University Medical Centre Rotterdam, Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

Background: In light of the evolving landscape of adjuvant therapy in melanoma and the recently confirmed absent survival benefit of completion lymph node dissection (CLND), it becomes important to explore possible consequences of omitting CLND, and whether it is possible to adequately stratify positive sentinel node (SN) patients solely based on information retrieved from the melanoma up to the sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB).

Methods: A retrospective cohort from nine European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer Melanoma Group centres was used. Patients were staged based on SLNB and CLND result according to the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) criteria and stratified by ulceration and SN tumour burden. Read More

Updated standard operating procedures for electrochemotherapy of cutaneous tumours and skin metastases.

Acta Oncol 2018 Jul 25;57(7):874-882. Epub 2018 Mar 25.

r Vectorology and Anticancer Therapies , UMR 8203, CNRS, Univ. Paris-Sud, Gustave Roussy, Université Paris-Saclay , Villejuif , France.

Electrochemotherapy is now in routine clinical use to treat cutaneous metastases of any histology, and is listed in national and international guidelines for cutaneous metastases and primary skin cancer. Electrochemotherapy is used by dermatologists, surgeons, and oncologists, and for different degrees and manifestations of metastases to skin and primary skin tumours not amenable to surgery. This treatment utilises electric pulses to permeabilize cell membranes in tumours, thus allowing a dramatic increase of the cytotoxicity of anti-cancer agents. Read More

Planar xanthomas secondary to post-transplantation cholangiopathy in a 16-month-old boy.

Pediatr Dermatol 2018 May 25;35(3):e163-e164. Epub 2018 Mar 25.

Division of Dermatology, Department of Medicine, David Geffen School of Medicine, University of California, Los Angeles, CA, USA.

Planar xanthomas in children represent rare dermatologic findings associated with abnormalities in lipid metabolism. While planar xanthomas in Alagille's syndrome have been well described in the literature, there have been no cases reported of eruptive xanthomas in pediatric liver transplant patients. Herein we report a case of a 16-month-old boy status post-liver transplantation who presents with planar xanthomas secondary to cholangiopathy. Read More

S P Paul

Ann R Coll Surg Engl 2018 Apr 15;100(4):330-337. Epub 2018 Mar 15.

University of Queensland, School of Medicine , Brisbane, Queensland , Australia.

Objective There remains confusion between Langer's lines and wrinkle lines with respect to the optimal orientation of elliptical excisions on the trunk. This study sought to determine the directions of wound closure that would result in least wound tension after skin lesion excisions. Materials and methods Some 1181 consecutive skin lesion excisions were investigated (age range 13-95 years, median 64 years) using a tensiometer to determine directions of least wound tension.

Reduction of Morbidity With a Reverse-Flow Sural Flap: A Two-Stage Technique.

J Foot Ankle Surg 2018 Jul - Aug;57(4):821-825. Epub 2018 Mar 1.

Professor, Department of Hand and Microsurgery, Hospital das Clinicas, Faculty of Medicine, São Paulo University, São Paulo, Brazil.

The reverse sural flap has often been used for cutaneous coverage of the distal region of the leg and ankle. When the flap is performed in 2 stages, the vascular pedicle is exteriorized and later resected. Our goal was to assess the reverse sural flap performed in 2 stages regarding its viability and low morbidity along the flap-donor area. Read More
