a Department of Dermatology, Venereology and Allergology , University Medical Center Göttingen , Göttingen , Germany.

In patients with melanomas on the upper back or nape, axillary sentinel lymph node (SLN) biopsy (SLNB), when performed in the traditional supine position, is often disturbed by scattered radiation emitted from the primary tumor site. The results from the present study suggestthat axillary SLNB performed in the prone position can solve this problem. We compared two consecutive groups of patients with melanomas of the dorsal trunk or nape who received axillary SLNB performed either in the supine (n = 119) or in the prone position (n = 130).

Aesthetic improvements of radial forearm flap donor site by autologous fat transplantation.

J Plast Surg Hand Surg 2019 Feb 16;53(1):51-55. Epub 2018 Nov 16.

a Plastic Surgery Unit , Sant'Andrea Hospital, School of Medicine and Psychology, "Sapienza" University of Rome , Rome , Italy.

Despite its reliability, radial forearm (RF) flap is still affected by high donor site morbidity with poor cosmetic and functional outcomes after coverage with skin grafts. Having fat grafting demonstrated promising and effective filling and rejuvenating properties, we considered and tested it as a valuable alternative to dermal substitutes for the aesthetic improvement of RF flap donor site. Thirty-three patients with previous RF free flap reconstruction and poor donor site outcomes after full-thickness skin grafting to RF region were evaluated for secondary fat injection to improve outcomes.

Sensory neurotization of muscle: past, present and future considerations.

J Plast Surg Hand Surg 2019 Feb 31;53(1):31-36. Epub 2018 Oct 31.

c Department of Plastic Surgery and Neurology , University of Tennessee Health Science Center Memphis , TN , USA.

Research has shown that temporary innervation by a sensory neuron can provide trophic support to a denervated muscle and stave off muscular atrophy until motor neuron transfer is viable. This so called 'sensory protection' allows for improved outcomes when motor reinnervation able to occur. The theoretical benefit of sensory neurotization is hypothesized to maintain tissue architecture of the end organ due to tropic effects of stimulation. Read More
