"A Cost Minimization Analysis Evaluating the Use of Liposomal Bupivacaine in Reconstructive Plastic Surgery Procedures."

Plast Reconstr Surg 2019 Jan 22. Epub 2019 Jan 22.

Postsurgical pain management is critical to patient satisfaction and value. Several studies have evaluated liposomal bupivacaine (LB) in postoperative pain management protocols, however its economic feasibility remains undefined. This study analyzes the economic impact of LB using a national claims database to assess postoperative clinical and financial outcomes in plastic and reconstructive procedures. Read More

Fat Grafting into Younger Recipients Improves Volume Retention in an Animal Model.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2019 Jan 22. Epub 2019 Jan 22.

Hagey Laboratory for Pediatric Regenerative Medicine, Department of Surgery, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Division, Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford, California.

Background: Soft tissue deficits associated with various craniofacial anomalies can be addressed by fat grafting, although outcomes remain unpredictable. Furthermore, consensus does not exist for timing of these procedures. While some advocate approaching soft tissue reconstruction after the underlying skeletal foundation has been corrected, other studies have suggested earlier grafting may exploit a younger recipient niche that is more conducive for fat graft survival.

Mythbusting the DIEP Flap and An Introduction to the Abdominal Perforator Exchange (APEX) Breast Reconstruction Technique: A Single-Surgeon Retrospective Review.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2019 Jan 22. Epub 2019 Jan 22.

Background: Anatomic variations in perforator arrangement may impair the surgeon's ability to effectively avoid rectus muscle transection without impairing flap perfusion in the DIEP flap.

Methods: A single surgeon's experience was reviewed with consecutive patients undergoing bilateral abdominal perforator flap breast reconstruction over 6 years, incorporating flap standardization, pedicle disassembly, and algorithmic vascular rerouting when necessary. Unilateral reconstructions were excluded to allow for uniform comparison of operative times and donor site outcomes. Read More

Fenestration Improves Acellular Dermal Matrix Biointegration: An Investigation of Revascularization with Photoacoustic Microscopy.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2019 Jan 22. Epub 2019 Jan 22.

Background: Acellular dermal matrices (ADMs) have revolutionized alloplastic breast reconstruction. Furthering our knowledge of ADM biointegration will allow for improved design of these biomaterials. The ideal ADM for breast reconstruction would provide durable soft tissue augmentation while undergoing rapid biointegration to promote physiologic elasticity and reduced infectious complications.

Inframammary Fold Reconstruction in the Previously Reconstructed Breast: A Comprehensive Review.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2019 Jan 22. Epub 2019 Jan 22.

Department of Plastic Surgery, The Ohio State Wexner Medical Center, Columbus, OH.

The inframammary fold (IMF) presents a reconstructive challenge once disrupted during total mastectomy or inadequately restored during breast reconstruction. Various methods of recreating the IMF have been proposed, but reports are generally based on small sample sizes and lack long-term analyses and patient-reported outcomes. We herein review the literature on IMF anatomy and reconstructive techniques, highlighting the need for more critical analysis of methodology to develop more predictable and durable outcomes.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2019 Jan 22. Epub 2019 Jan 22.

Department of Anatomy, Research Institute of Medical Science, Konkuk University School of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Background: Vision loss and skin necrosis caused by an accidental intra-arterial embolism or vascular compression are rare but devastating complications when injecting filler materials into the face. Accurate knowledge of the vascular anatomy of the anterior face is crucial for performing safe cosmetic procedures.

Methods: Seventy-two facial arteries were harvested from 41 formalin-embalmed cadavers. Read More

Making Sense of Stem Cells and Fat Grafting in Plastic Surgery: The Hype, Evidence, and Evolving U.S. Food and Drug Administration Regulations.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2019 Feb;143(2):417e-424e

Dallas, Texas From the Dallas Plastic Surgery Institute.

Autologous fat grafting and adipose-derived stem cells are two distinct entities with two different risk profiles, and should be regulated as such. Autologous fat grafting prepared with the additional step of stromal vascular fraction isolation is considered a form of "stem cell therapy" given the high concentration of stem cells found in stromal vascular fraction. Much ambiguity existed in the distinction between autologous fat grafting and stromal vascular fraction initially, in terms of both their biological properties and how they should be regulated.

Urethral Reconstruction in Anterolateral Thigh Flap Phalloplasty: A 93-Case Experience.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2019 Feb;143(2):382e-392e

Ghent, Belgium; and Palermo, Italy From the Departments of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and Urology, Ghent University Hospital; and the Department of Surgical, Oncological and Oral Sciences, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Section, University of Palermo.

Background: Urethral reconstruction in anterolateral thigh flap phalloplasty cannot always be accomplished with one flap, and the ideal technique has not been established yet. In this article, the authors' experience with urethral reconstruction in 93 anterolateral thigh flap phalloplasties is reported.

Methods: Ninety-three anterolateral thigh phalloplasties performed over 13 years at a single center were retrospectively reviewed to evaluate outcomes of the different urethral reconstruction techniques used: anterolateral thigh alone without urethral reconstruction (n = 7), tube-in-tube anterolateral thigh flap (n = 5), prelaminated anterolateral thigh flap with a skin graft (n = 8), anterolateral thigh flap combined with a free radial forearm flap (n = 29), anterolateral thigh flap combined with a pedicled superficial circumflex iliac artery perforator flap (n = 38), and anterolateral thigh flap combined with a skin flap from a previous phalloplasty (n = 6).

New York, N.Y. From the Hansjörg Wyss Department of Plastic Surgery, New York University Langone Health.

Restoration of the upper lip provides a reconstructive challenge because of its anatomical and aesthetic requirements. This article provides a "where is it on the lip" approach to reconstruct small to subtotal defects of the upper lip that are feasible to perform in the office setting. Emphasis is placed on adherence to core principles, attention to macroaesthetic and microaesthetic landmarks, and technical refinements of well-established reconstructive techniques. Read More

Reuse of the Masseteric Nerve for Dynamic Reanimation in Facial Palsy Patients with Previously Failed One-Stage Dynamic Smile Reanimation.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2019 Feb;143(2):567-571

Dallas, Texas From the Department of Plastic Surgery, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center.

Failed primary dynamic smile reanimation procedures present significant challenges for the patient and surgeon alike. This is particularly true in older patients with a history of previous neck dissection and radiation therapy who underwent previous reconstruction with a free functional muscle transfer innervated with an ipsilateral masseter nerve. The objective of this study was to demonstrate feasibility, describe surgical technique, and assess results of reusing the masseter nerve to reinnervate a new free functional muscle transfer.

The Use of Botulinum Toxin Type A in the Healing of Thyroidectomy Wounds: A Randomized, Prospective, Placebo-Controlled Study.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2019 Feb;143(2):375e-381e

Halifax, Nova Scotia, and Kingston, Ontario, Canada; and Regensburg, Germany From the Division of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Dalhousie University; the Division of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Queens University; and Stv. Leitender Oberarzt, Plastische Gesichtschirurgie, Universitäts-HNO-Klinik Regensburg.

Background: Recent research has indicated that botulinum toxin type A may have an inhibitory effect on the formation of fibroblasts and thus possibly decreases the severity of scar formation. Therefore, a trial was designed to assess the effects of botulinum toxin type A on scar formation after thyroid surgery.

Methods: A double-blind, randomized, controlled trial was designed. Read More
