Plast Reconstr Surg 2019 Apr 9. Epub 2019 Apr 9.

Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Department of Surgery, University of Toronto, Toronto, ON, Canada.

Background: Microvascular breast reconstruction is a complex procedure that can be associated with high complication rates. While a number of individual predictors of peri-operative complications have been identified, few studies have explored interaction between risk factors. Understanding the synergistic effects of multiple risk factors is central to accurate and personalized pre-operative risk prediction. Read More

A New Face Subunit Transplant Model in Mice, Containing Skin, Mandible, and Oral Mucosa for Future Face Vascularized Composite Allotransplantation Studies.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2019 Apr 11. Epub 2019 Apr 11.

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Chang Gung Memorial Hospital, Taoyuan, Taiwan.

Background: In immunologic research, mice have advantages over other animals, such as low costs, easy handling, suitable lifecycle, and adequate laboratory resources. However, mice vascularized composite allotransplantation (VCA) surgery is not popular, partly because of technical difficulties and high mortality rates. Our goal was to demonstrate a face transplantation model in mice that includes skin, mandible and oral mucosa. Read More

Outcomes of single versus double fascicular nerve transfers for restoration of elbow flexion in patients with brachial plexus injuries: a systematic review and meta-analysis.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2019 Apr 11. Epub 2019 Apr 11.

Background: Elbow flexion after upper brachial plexus injury may be restored by a nerve transfer from the ulnar nerve to the biceps motor branch with an optional nerve transfer from the median nerve to the brachialis motor branch (single and double fascicular nerve transfer). This meta-analysis assesses the effectiveness of both techniques and the added value of additional reinnervation of the brachialis muscle.

Methods: Comprehensive searches were performed identifying studies concerning restoration of elbow flexion through single and double fascicular nerve transfers. Read More

String Fat/Dermis Graft for Correction of Wrinkles and Scars.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2019 Apr 11. Epub 2019 Apr 11.

Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine.

Established creases and wrinkles do not predictably respond to the fat injection technique. We describe a minimally invasive, yet simple technique to address recalcitrant facial rhytids and minor depressed scars. This technique optimally requires a concomitant procedure whereby suitable fat or dermis graft could be available for grafting without having to make another incision. Read More

Is Skin the Most Allogenic Tissue in Vascularized Composite Allotransplantation and a Valid Monitor of the Deeper Tissues?

Plast Reconstr Surg 2019 04;143(4):880e-886e

Lackland Air Force Base, Fort Sam Houston, San Antonio, and Temple, Texas; and Winston-Salem, N.C. From the RESTOR Program, 59th Medical Wing, and the San Antonio Military Medical Center, Joint Base San Antonio; the University of Texas Health at San Antonio; Baylor Scott & White Health; and Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine.

Since the 1960s, skin has been considered to be the most allogenic tissue in humans. This tenet has remained unquestioned in the reconstructive transplant arena, which has led to skin serving as the sole monitor for early rejection in vascularized composite allotransplantation. In this article, the authors question the validity of this belief. Read More

Oral Surgeons as Cosmetic Surgeons and Their Scope of Practice.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2019 Apr;143(4):872e-879e

Washington, D.C.; and Baltimore, Md. From DAVinci Plastic Surgery; Georgetown University Hospital Center; and the Carey School of Business, Johns Hopkins University.

Background: In recent years, the practice of cosmetic surgery has expanded to include oral and maxillofacial surgeons. The groundwork for this scope-of-practice expansion was laid in part by the American Dental Association's definition change of the practice of dentistry. This change modified the scope of dentistry from the earlier "teeth and surrounding and supporting structures" to the maxillofacial area and beyond. Read More

Lyon, France From the Department of Maxillofacial and Facial Plastic Surgery, Lyon Sud Hospital; and the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Croix Rousse Hospital, Hospices Civils de Lyon, University Claude Bernard Lyon 1.

Background: Increased anatomical knowledge of skin vascularization, such as the recent description of angiosome and perforasome concepts, has led to important innovations in flap surgery. In this sense, few studies have been performed on face vascularization especially for facial artery perforasomes. The aim of this study was to analyze the number, size, and localization of transverse facial artery perforators and their perfusion area. Read More
