Salvage of a costochondral graft for microtia after postoperative infection.

Ann Plast Surg 2014 Jan;72(1):56-8

From the *Shriner's Hospital for Children, Boston, MA; †Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA; and ‡Tufts Medical Center, Boston, MA.

Costochondral grafts have been the gold standard for ear reconstruction in cases of microtia repair for decades. Microtia repair has been traditionally associated with a low complication rate, yet little exists in the literature regarding the management of complications when they do occur. Postoperative infections of costochondral grafts have traditionally resulted in complete graft loss, necessitating additional surgery or leaving the patient with continued physical disfigurement and the accompanying psychological and emotional distress.

Extended vertical trapezius myocutaneous flap in head and neck reconstruction as a salvage procedure.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2004 Aug;114(2):339-50

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Sişli Etfal State Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey.

In surgical treatment of head and neck cancer, when local tumor recurrence or failure of the previous reconstruction method occurs, reoperation for reconstruction of complicated soft-tissue defects can become a challenge for the plastic surgeon. This article describes the authors' experience with the extended vertical trapezius myocutaneous flap for head and neck complicated soft-tissue defects in nine patients ranging in age from 17 to 72 years. The causes of the defects were squamous cell carcinoma of the external ear (n = 2), lip (n = 2), larynx (n = 1), and oral cavity floor (n = 1); congenital hemifacial atrophy-temporomandibular joint ankylosis (n = 1); synovial sarcoma at the mandibular ramus (n = 1); and malignant fibrous histiocytoma at the posterior cranial fossa (n = 1).

Arch Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg 1993 Mar;119(3):313-9

Division of Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, Stanford University, CA.

A previously described rabbit ear model was used to address the following issues: (1) the role of surgical delay in composite tissue transfer, (2) optimal enhancement of graft survival using the corticosteroid methylprednisolone, (3) pharmacologic salvage of the failing composite graft, and (4) efficacy of a nonsteroidal dual cyclooxygenase/lipooxygenase inhibitor (SK&F 86002) in enhancing graft survival. Preoperative and immediate postoperative steroid treatment groups exhibited a significant improvement in graft survival area compared with the untreated control group. Preoperative initiation of steroid therapy was more effective than a strictly postoperative regimen. Read More

Salvage of ear cartilage in patients with acute full-thickness burns.

J Burn Care Rehabil 1991 Jul-Aug;12(4):339-43

Division of Plastic Surgery, University of California, Irvine.

Three cases in which the temporoparietal fascial flap was used to salvage denuded ear cartilage during the acute period after burn injury are reported. Patients' burns ranged from 30% to 75% total body surface area. The full-thickness burn was acutely excised, exposing the auricular cartilage. Read More

Total scalp, ear, and eyebrow avulsion: aesthetic adjustment of the replanted tissue.

J Reconstr Microsurg 1990 Jul;6(3):223-7

Plastic Surgery Section, Indiana University Medical Center, Indianapolis 46202-5200.

A case of successful replantation of a total scalp avulsion, including both ears and one eyebrow, is presented with bilateral anastomoses to the superficial temporal vessels. While over 90 percent of the replant survived, partial loss of occipital and posterior neck skin and the inferior half of the left ear occurred. The patient subsequently required additional procedures, including skin grafting, scar revisions, and staged ear reconstructions. Read More

Immediate reconstruction of the auricle using the amputated cartilage and the temporoparietal fascia.

Ann Plast Surg 1988 Oct;21(4):378-81

Mecom Microsurgical Institute, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX.

Successful restoration of the auricle following amputation using microsurgical techniques for reimplantation remains the best reconstructive alternative. In many cases of partial amputation, however, this option may not be technically feasible. Deepithelialization of the amputated part followed by coverage of the ear cartilage using an ipsilateral temporoparietal fascia turn-down flap may allow a single-stage salvage procedure that provides an acceptable final result.

Salvage of the ear in acute trauma.

Authors:
R A Mladick

Clin Plast Surg 1978 Jul;5(3):427-35

Salvage of the ear in major acute trauma has been refined over the years. When severed parts were merely discarded, patients had to accept the defect or seek correction by secondary reconstruction. As primary reconstruction improved, the severed parts were reattached minimizing late deformities. Read More
