Occlusive dressing-induced secretomes influence the migration and proliferation of mesenchymal stem cells and fibroblasts differently.

Eur J Med Res 2018 Dec 26;23(1):60. Epub 2018 Dec 26.

Department for Trauma Surgery, Orthopedic Surgery and Plastic Surgery, University Medical Center Goettingen, Goettingen, Germany.

Background: Fingertip injuries treated with occlusive dressings (ODs) lead to nearly scar-free, functionally, and aesthetically pleasing results. We hypothesized that paracrine factors in the wound fluid (secretome) may influence migration and proliferation of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) and fibroblasts and modulate the wound-healing process.

Methods: We could collect wound fluid samples from 4 fingertip injuries and 7 split skin donor sites at the 5th day during dressing change. Read More

Department of Veterinary Physiology & Pharmacology, College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas, USA.

Regeneration Biology is the study of organisms with endogenous regenerative abilities, whereas Regenerative Medicine focuses on engineering solutions for human injuries that do not regenerate. While the two fields are fundamentally different in their approach, there is an obvious interface involving mammalian regeneration models. The fingertip is the only part of the human limb that is regeneration-competent and the regenerating mouse digit tip has emerged as a model to study a clinically relevant regenerative response.

Management of Nail Bed Injuries Associated with Fingertip Injuries.

Indian J Orthop 2017 Nov-Dec;51(6):709-713

Department of Physiology, Sree Narayana Institute of Medical Sciences, Ernakulum, Kerala, India.

Background: Management of nail injuries can often be a challenging experience, especially in presence of complex fingertips' injuries that include soft tissue loss and distal phalanx injury. Most studies found in the literature focus on individual injuries and describe methods to tackle those injuries, notwithstanding the fact that the nail, nailbed, distal phalanx, soft tissue and skin of the finger tip form a complex and often more than one element of this complex is injured. This retrospective study therefore focuses on the management of nail bed injuries as a part of the complex finger tip injury and outlines the surgical principles and techniques that were used in their management.

Reverse Distal Transverse Palmar Arch in Distal Digital Replantation.

Ann Plast Surg 2017 Nov;79(5):473-476

From the *Department of Plastic Surgery, Cheng Ching General Hospital, Taichung, Taiwan; †Department of Plastic Surgery, Quiron Hospital, San Sebastian; ‡Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Traumatology, Clínica Universidad de Navarra, Pamplona, Navarra, Spain; and §University of Toronto, Faculty of Medicine, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Background: Refinements in microsurgery have made distal finger replantation an established technique with high success rates and good functional and aesthetic outcomes. However, it still represents a technically demanding procedure due to the small vessel caliber and frequent lack of vessel length, requiring the use of interpositional venous grafts in some instances. We describe a new technique for anastomosis in fingertip replantation, whereby the need for venous grafts is eliminated. Read More
