Sympathetic dysfunction dermatitis in a revascularised upper extremity after near-total amputation - A case report and review of literature.

Indian J Plast Surg 2018 Sep-Dec;51(3):327-330

Consultant Plastic surgeon, Sparsh Clinics, Nagpur, Maharashtra, India.

Commonly reported complications after revascularisation or replantation of extremity are vascular thrombosis leading to complete or partial failure, bony non-union or malunion, joint stiffness and incomplete or abnormal sensory recovery. Sympathetic dysfunction dermatitis is an unreported complication after revascularisation or replantation surgery which results due to denervation of the extremity. We report a case of a young adult who developed eczematous dermatitis over the revascularised upper limb and discuss the role of sympathetic dysfunction in the development of these skin lesions.

Long-term management of an ankylosed young permanent incisor replanted within 2 h of avulsion: A case report with a 10-year follow-up.

J Indian Soc Pedod Prev Dent 2019 Jan-Mar;37(1):99-106

Al Maher Medical Center, Dubai, UAE.

Tooth avulsion is a severe form of luxation injury that involves damage to both the pulp and the periodontal ligament. Avulsed teeth need to be replanted immediately in order to restore esthetics and function. Delayed replantation often results in ankylosis of the tooth which is a common sequela following avulsion injuries. Read More

Outcomes of Secondary Combined Proximal Interphalangeal Joint Release and Zone II Flexor Tenolysis.

Hand (N Y) 2019 Feb 14:1558944719828005. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

1 University of Toronto, Toronto, ON, Canada.

Background: Tendon adhesions and capsular contractures following trauma to the proximal interphalangeal joint (PIPJ) may significantly reduce hand function. Traditional, staged surgical management prioritizes restoration of PIPJ passive range of motion with joint release prior to restoration of active range of motion (AROM) with tenolysis. This is expensive and burdensome for patients. Read More

Relationships Between Vein Repairs, Postoperative Transfusions, and Survival in Single Digit Replantation.

Hand (N Y) 2019 Feb 14:1558944719828002. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

1 New York University Langone Orthopedic Hospital, New York City, USA.

Background: The general teaching is that increased number of vein repairs in digit replantation leads to improved venous outflow, resulting in lower need for iatrogenic bleeding, lower postoperative transfusion requirements, and better survival rates. The purpose of this study was to determine whether the traditional teaching that emphasizes the repair of multiple veins per arterial anastomosis results in superior survival rates.

Methods: A retrospective review of a single urban replant center's single-digit replants distal to the mid-metacarpal level in adult patients from 2007 to 2017 was performed. Read More
