Pedicle Galeo-pericranial Flap Augmentation in Salvage Frontotemporal Cranioplasty: Additional 'Neurosurgeon-friendly' Reconstruction Technique of Aesthetic Neurosurgery in Superficial Temporal Artery Branch Compromised Host.

Neurol Med Chir (Tokyo) 2018 Aug 12;58(8):350-355. Epub 2018 Jul 12.

Department of Neurological Surgery, Nippon Medical School.

This technical note aims to demonstrate the usefulness, indications and its limitations of augmentation technique by bipedicle galeo-pericranial rotation flap and by monopedicle galeo-pericranial flap, both in STA (superficial temporal artery) branch compromised hosts in salvage frontotemporal cranioplasty. Although these flaps are not always idealistically vascularized owing to accidental injuries to the STA branches during previous surgeries, they are properly augmenting after salvage frontotemporal craniotomy when infection is not active. The procedure is indicated for salvage frontotemporal craniotomy when vasculature is needed at the surgical site, such as beneath the skin incision line in a thin injured scalp, onto the titanium plates or beneath the fragile fibrous scar.

World Neurosurg 2018 Jul 17;115:186-192. Epub 2018 Apr 17.

Department of Neurosurgery, Barrow Neurological Institute, St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center, Phoenix, Arizona, USA. Electronic address:

Background: Vascularized bone grafts (VBGs) are described as having superior osteogenicity, osteoconductivity, and osteoinductivity compared with other graft types and have been used in high-risk patients to augment arthrodesis. Pedicled VBGs are rotated on an intact vascular pedicle and therefore maintain all the benefits of VBGs but avoid many of the challenges and additional morbidity of free-tissue transfer. This study describes a novel surgical technique for rotating vascularized spinous process into the posterolateral space for augmenting arthrodesis in patients undergoing posterolateral fusion (PLF).

Ann Plast Surg 2018 Jun;80(6):648-652

Gynecologic Oncology, Netherlands Cancer Institute-Antoni van Leeuwenhoek Hospital, Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

Background And Aim: Because of the associated high recurrence rate, future reconstructive options should be reckoned with during surgical treatment of primary or recurrent (pre)malignant vulvoperineal lesions. One of the claimed advantages of the gluteal fold flap is the possibility of repeated use of the flap in case of recurrence. We present our experience with such reuse of gluteal fold flaps to illustrate this possibility. Read More

Service de chirurgie plastique, reconstructrice et esthétique, centre hospitalier Saint-Joseph Saint-Luc, 20, quai Claude-Bernard, 69007 Lyon, France.

Introduction: The ischiatric pressure sore is a common pathology in rehabilitated spinal cord injured people, despite careful prevention. Medical treatment by discharge and directed healing is not always sufficient and surgery using local musculocutaneous flaps is often essential. Unfortunately, recidivism is frequent and the availability of local flaps is limited. Read More

Mixed facial reanimation technique to treat paralysis in medium-term cases.

J Craniomaxillofac Surg 2018 May 14;46(5):868-874. Epub 2018 Mar 14.

Maxillo-Facial Surgery Department. (Head: Professor C. Marchetti), Sant'Orsola-Malpighi Hospital, University of Bologna, via Albertoni 15, Bologna, Italy.

Recent facial paralyses, in which fibrillations of the mimetic muscles are still detectable by electromyography (EMG), allow facial reanimation based on giving new neural stimuli to musculature. However, if more time has elapsed, mimetic muscles can undergo irreversible atrophy, and providing a new neural stimulus is simply not effective. In these cases function is provided by transferring free flaps into the face or transposing masticatory muscles to reinstitute major movements, such as eyelid closure and smiling. Read More

Topology, Geometry, and Mechanics of Z-Plasty.

Phys Rev Lett 2018 Feb;120(6):068101

Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, Harvard University, 29 Oxford Street, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02138, USA.

Reconstructive surgeries often use topological manipulation of tissue to minimize postoperative scarring. The most common version of this, Z-plasty, involves modifying a straight line cut into a Z shape, followed by a rotational transposition of the resulting triangular pedicle flaps, and a final restitching of the wound. This locally reorients the anisotropic stress field and reduces the potential for scarring. Read More
