Minimally Invasive Quadriceps Tendon Single-Bundle, Arthroscopic, Anatomic Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction With Rectangular Bone Tunnels.

Arthrosc Tech 2018 Oct 24;7(10):e1045-e1056. Epub 2018 Sep 24.

Gelenkpunkt-Sports and Joint Surgery, Innsbruck, Austria.

Many surgeons use quadriceps tendon (QT) graft for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) revision surgery; however, despite excellent clinical results, the QT has not achieved universal acceptance for primary ACL reconstruction. One of the reasons for this may be that the QT is technically demanding to harvest and the scar from open harvesting techniques is less cosmetically favorable than that from hamstring tendon techniques. Recent evidence has suggested that broad flat QT grafts may more closely mimic native ACL "ribbon-like" morphology than hamstring tendon grafts. Read More

Facial Scar Improvement Procedures.

Facial Plast Surg 2018 Oct 8;34(5):448-457. Epub 2018 Oct 8.

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, University of Utah Hospital, Salt Lake City, Utah.

Scars are a natural part of dermal healing following lacerations, incisions, or tissue loss. The ideal scar is narrow, flat, level with surrounding tissue, and difficult for the untrained eye to see due to color match and placement parallel to relaxed skin tension lines; however, scarring that is dyspigmented, hypertrophied, widened, contracted, or atrophic can be aesthetically displeasing or causing functional limitations. When the scar has unfavorable characteristics, scar revision is often indicated and the cosmetic surgeon must be knowledgeable of the minimally invasive as well as surgical techniques to improve aesthetics, reduced reoccurrence, or correct functional limitations.

Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion With Viable Allograft: 75 Consecutive Cases at 12-Month Follow-up.

Int J Spine Surg 2018 Jan 30;12(1):76-84. Epub 2018 Mar 30.

Atlanta Medical Center, Atlanta, Georgia.

Background: When conservative treatments fail to alleviate the discomfort of abnormal motion, spinal fusion has been shown to provide symptomatic treatment for spinal instability, stenosis, spondylolisthesis, and symptomatic degenerative disc disease. The trend and rates of fusion over the past few years have been dramatic in the United States. Accompanying that higher incidence has been the shifting from traditional open surgery to minimally invasive techniques to reduce scar tissue formation, extent of muscle stripping, and muscle retraction which all have been shown to adversely affect outcomes.

Isotretinoin and dermatosurgical procedures.

Indian J Dermatol Venereol Leprol 2019 Jan-Feb;85(1):18-23

Department of Dermatologist, Inlaks and Budhrani Hospital, Pune, Maharashtra, India.

Several early reports suggested that performance of dermatosurgical procedures in patients on oral isotretinoin is associated with abnormal skin healing, keloid or hypertrophic scar formation. However, this association has been recently questioned in some studies. This review examines this issue, analyzes the studies published and concludes that the recommendation made earlier about the need to avoid dermatosurgical procedures in patients on isotretinoin is based on inadequate and insufficient evidence and hence needs revision.

Vagal Nerve Stimulator Lead Revision Using Needle-Tip Cautery: Case Series, Literature Review, and Technical Note.

World Neurosurg 2018 Sep 30;117:377-381. Epub 2018 Jun 30.

Section of Neurological Surgery, Department of Surgery, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, Lebanon.

Background: Vagal nerve stimulators (VNs) have been in use in the United States since the 1990s as a palliative treatment option for drug-resistant epilepsy. Over time, the electrode coils wrapped around the vagus nerve become encapsulated by extensive scar tissue, making complete electrode removal challenging. We present a case series of lead revision surgeries with a unique way to remove the scar tissue around the vagus nerve, demonstrating a technique for complete electrode removal. Read More

Skin crease 'bikini' incision for the direct anterior approach in total hip arthroplasty.

Bone Joint J 2018 07;100-B(7):853-861

Orthopedic Department, Schulthess Clinic, Zurich, Switzerland.

Aims: The classical longitudinal incision used for the direct anterior approach (DAA) to the hip does not follow the tension lines of the skin and can lead to impaired wound healing and poor cosmesis. The purpose of this retrospective study was to determine the satisfaction with the scar, and functional and radiographic outcomes comparing the classic longitudinal incision with a modified skin crease 'bikini' when the DAA is used for total hip arthroplasty (THA).

Patients And Methods: A total of 964 patients (51% female; 59% longitudinal, 41% 'bikini') completed a follow-up questionnaire between two and four years postoperatively, including the Oxford Hip Score (OHS), the University of North Carolina '4P' scar scale (UNC4P) and two items for assessing the aesthetic appearance of the scar and symptoms of numbness.
