Local Immunosuppression for Vascularized Composite Allografts: Application of Topical FK506-TyroSpheres in a Non-Human Primate Model.

J Burn Care Res 2020 Apr 30. Epub 2020 Apr 30.

Vascularized Composite Allotransplantation Laboratory, Center for Transplantation Sciences, Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA.

Transplantation of vascularized composite allografts (VCAs) provides a means of restoring complex anatomical and functional units following burns and other disfigurement otherwise not amenable to conventional autologous reconstructive surgery. While short- to intermediate-term VCA survival is largely dependent on patient compliance with medication, the myriad of side effects resulting from lifelong systemic immunosuppression continue to pose a significant challenge. Topical immunosuppression is therefore a logical and attractive alternative for VCA. Read More

Heel Reconstruction With Bipedicled Flap: A Salvage Procedure.

Int J Low Extrem Wounds 2020 Feb 23:1534734620905738. Epub 2020 Feb 23.

Ankara Numune Training and Research Hospital, Ankara, Turkey.

Reconstruction of the heel region poses great challenge to plastic surgeons not only due to calcaneal bone lying just deep to the subdermal fat pad but also due to easily exposed Achilles tendon. In order to achieve permanent closure of the heel defect, exposed bone or tendon-or both-should be covered with durable, preferably sensate, well-vascularized, thin skin flaps. Even though fasciocutaneous free flaps remain the gold standard in the reconstruction of heel defects with exposed bone or tendon, a significant number of these patients are older individuals with multiple comorbidities such as diabetes mellitus, hypertension, atherosclerosis, and peripheral vascular disease.

Novel Geometry of an Extended Length Chimeric Scapular Free Flap for Hemimandibular Reconstruction: Nuances of the Technique Streamlined by In-House Virtual Surgical Planning and 3D Printing for a Severely Vessel-Depleted Neck.

J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2020 May 22;78(5):823-834. Epub 2020 Jan 22.

Assistant Professor of Surgery and Division Chair, Section of Head and Neck Oncologic Surgery and Reconstruction, Division of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Department of Surgery, Mayo Clinic and Mayo College of Medicine, Rochester, MN.

Subscapular-based flaps have historically maintained an unparalleled ability to provide a multitude of bone and soft tissue components based on a single vascular pedicle. However, these flaps are often not thought of as an ideal choice for composite defects requiring extended lengths of bone for reconstruction. The ability to harvest long segments of bone and reliably perform multiple contouring osteotomies is fundamental to long-span composite mandibular reconstruction, and microvascular surgeons are often met with significant reconstructive challenges when fibular free flaps cannot be used owing to variant vascular anatomy or occlusive atherosclerotic disease in these specific clinical scenarios.

Effect of Botulinum Toxin-A Injected to Muscle Tissue on Perfusion and Survival of Fasciocutaneous Single Perforator-pedicled Propeller Flap in Rats

Balkan Med J 2020 02 10;37(2):84-90. Epub 2019 Dec 10.

Department of Nuclear Medicine, Cumhuriyet University School of Medicine, Sivas, Turkey

Background: In plastic surgery practice, fasciocutaneous single-perforator-pedicled propeller flap is a preferred procedure; however, its survival rate is below than expected, especially in flaps with a big rotation arc. When botulinum toxin-A is injected into the muscle tissue that the perforator pedicle is arisen, the tonus of pertinent muscle can reduce and the blood flow of its perforator pedicle can increase. Therefore this procedure can improve the survival rate of single-perforator-pedicled propeller flap. Read More

Distally Based Sural Adipofascial Turnover Flap for Coverage of Complicated Wound in the Foot and Ankle Region.

Ann Plast Surg 2020 May;84(5):580-587

From the Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Yangpu Hospital, School of Medicine, Tongji University, Shanghai, People's Republic of China.

Backgrounds: Distally based perforator propeller flap from the lower leg region is a versatile local reconstructive technique for the foot and ankle defects. However, flap venous congestion remains a tough nut to crack. We hypothesize that raising an adipofascial flap with turnover mode of transposition can improve venous drainage and enhance flap safety.

Matched Comparison of Microsurgical Anastomoses Performed with Loupe Magnification versus Operating Microscope in Traumatic Lower Extremity Reconstruction.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2020 01;145(1):235-240

Charlottesville, Va.; Philadelphia, Pa.; and New York, N.Y. From the Department of Plastic Surgery, University of Virginia Health System; the Department of Surgery, Division of Plastic Surgery, and the Department of Orthopedic Surgery, University of Pennsylvania Health System; and the Department of Plastic Surgery, New York University Langone Health.

Background: Although the surgical microscope remains the most common tool used for visual magnification for microsurgical anastomoses in free tissue transfer, loupe-only magnification for free flap breast reconstruction has been demonstrated to be safe and effective. To evaluate the loupe-only technique in lower extremity free flap reconstruction, the authors compared perioperative outcomes between microsurgical anastomoses performed with loupe magnification versus a surgical microscope.

Methods: The authors conducted a two-institution retrospective study of soft-tissue free flaps for traumatic below-knee reconstruction. Read More

Choosing between Muscle and Fasciocutaneous Free Flap Reconstruction in the Treatment of Lower Extremity Osteomyelitis: Available Evidence for a Function-Specific Approach.

J Reconstr Microsurg 2020 Mar 7;36(3):197-203. Epub 2019 Oct 7.

Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Anschutz Medical Center, University of Colorado, Aurora, Colorado.

Background:  Limb salvage in the setting of extremity osteomyelitis, though previously dependent on amputation, has been markedly improved through the application of free tissue flaps. Concern exists as to the utility of the fasciocutaneous flap to combat infection verses the traditional muscle flap. Prior studies have shown success with fasciocutaneous flaps in these patients, but given the small series, the choice remains controversial. Read More
