The Case for Onlay Biologic Mesh in Abdominal Wall Reconstruction Using Progressive Tension Suture Fixation.

Ann Plast Surg 2021 Jun;86(6S Suppl 5):S498-S502

From the Division of Plastic Surgery, University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Medicine.

Background: After many years of debate, underlay and sublay placement of mesh slowly emerged as the standard of care in abdominal wall reconstruction because of lower hernia recurrence rates. However, onlay has the advantages of being faster, less invasive, and technically easier compared with underlay and sublay. Therefore, if a similar recurrence could be achieved, then onlay should be a consideration. Read More

Pinless Navigation in Unicompartmental Knee Arthroplasty.

J Clin Med 2021 May 30;10(11). Epub 2021 May 30.

Sporthopaedicum Straubing, Medical Care Center, 94135 Straubing, Germany.

Purpose: In contrast to total knee arthroplasty (TKA), unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) is a true resurfacing procedure, as none of the ligaments are replaced or released, and the pre-arthritic leg alignment is the major goal. As such, the alignment of the tibial component plays a crucial role in postoperative knee function and long-term survival. Pinless navigation has shown reliable results in total knee arthroplasty.

Histomorphometric Comparison between Two Types of Acellular Dermal Matrix Grafts: A Mini Pig Animal Model Study.

Int J Environ Res Public Health 2021 04 7;18(8). Epub 2021 Apr 7.

Faculty of Dentistry, Universidad Alfonso X El Sabio, 28961 Villanueva de la Cañada, Spain.

Acellular dermal matrix grafts (ADMG) have been used as soft tissue graft substitutes for autografts in periodontal plastic surgical procedures. They have benefits like avoiding a second surgical site and patient morbidity that have been associated with autografts, but there is limited evidence available on their tissue response and wound healing process. This histomorphometric animal model study was carried out in mini pigs and it aimed to compare the two types of ADMG materials of porcine derivative with a control group through observation of parameters like epithelial and Keratinized layer thickness, angiogenesis, cellularity, matrix resorption, and inflammatory infiltrate.
