A case of infection and severe soft tissue loss of the elbow. Planning surgical treatment in compliance with good clinical-care practices and medico-legal implications.

Acta Biomed 2022 Jun 30;93(S1):e2022106. Epub 2022 Jun 30.

Trauma Unit and Emergency Department, IRCCS Galeazzi Orthopedics Institute, Milano, Italy.

Soft tissue loss around  the elbow, with tendons, nerves and bone exposure,  represents a challenging condition, often requiring a complex and accurate surgical reconstruction. Inadequate repair of soft tissue defects may in fact compromise further reconstructive orthopedic procedures, including  osteosynthesis and joint replacement. A correct reparative sequence of these lesions usually starts with an appropriate debridement and removal of all non-viable and infected tissues, followed by soft tissues management through plastic and reconstructive techniques.

[Progress and thinking of minimally invasive technique in the treatment of chronic Achilles tendon rupture].

Y J Hao A G Wang

Zhonghua Wai Ke Za Zhi 2022 Jun;60(6):524-527

Department of Hand and Foot Microsurgery, Xuzhou Central Hospital, Xuzhou Clinical School of Xuzhou Medical University, Xuzhou 221009, China.

In recent years,the application of minimally invasive techniques in the treatment of chronic Achilles tendon rupture has become more and more mature,and it also faces many controversies and challenges.The concept of minimally invasive technique is to minimize the dissection of soft tissue around the Achilles tendon and reduce the occurrence of postoperative wound complications.Minimally invasive small incision surgery does not expose the Achilles tendon stump,and either tendon transposition or tendon transplantation can be achieved using this technique,but there is a risk of accidental injury to the peripheral nerve.

Semin Musculoskelet Radiol 2022 Jun 2;26(3):295-313. Epub 2022 Jun 2.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of Arizona, Tucson, Arizona.

Common indications for surgical procedures of the wrist and hand include acute fractures or fracture-dislocations; nonunited fractures; posttraumatic, degenerative, and inflammatory arthritides and tendinopathies; injuries to tendons, ligaments, and the triangular fibrocartilage complex; and entrapment neuropathies. Soft tissue or osseous infections or masses may also need surgical treatment. Several of these procedures require surgical hardware placement, and most entail clinical follow-up with periodic imaging. Read More

Waveform-arranged multiple skin paddles: A novel design to reconstruct complex soft tissue defects of the extremities with a modified multi-lobed perforator flap.

Injury 2022 Jul 24;53(7):2550-2556. Epub 2022 May 24.

Department of Microsurgery and Hand Surgery, Xiangya Hosipital of Central South University, Changsha, 410008, China. Electronic address:

Background: Multi-lobed perforator flap was one of popular approaches for one-stage reconstruction of complex soft tissue defects because of its minimal donor-site morbidity. However, the area of skin island that can be harvested on the donor site is limited on the angiosome distribution, Moreover, large defects require more than the conventional skin island provided by a traditional multi-lobed perforator flap. For further extended skin paddles, this study presented a novel design of waveform-arranged skin paddles to elevated a modified multi-lobed perforator flap for the reconstruction of complex soft tissue defects in the extremities.

Reconstruction of the Palmar Defect of the Hand with a Sensory Medial Plantar Artery Flap.

Front Surg 2022 6;9:874629. Epub 2022 May 6.

Department of orthopedics, The Affiliated Traditional Chinese Medicine Hospital of Southwest Medical University, LuZhou, China.

Background: There are many approaches to repair the palmar defect of the hand, but due to the complex tissue structure, versatile functions, and high restoration demands, the repair of the palmar defect of the hand has always been a difficult task. Choosing suitable flaps to repair this kind of injury is always a tough challenge for the reconstructive surgeon because of the limitation of the number of arteries in the recipient hand and high restoration demands.
