Revisiting the value of the 'bandoneon' flap for lower lip reconstruction: a report of two cases and outcome.

J Surg Case Rep 2020 May 23;2020(5):rjaa082. Epub 2020 May 23.

Division of Plastic Surgery, Department of Surgery, University of Alabama at Birmingham, Birmingham, AL 35233, USA.

Mild- to moderate-sized lip defects that affect one- to two-thirds of the total lip length often require that utilization of local soft tissue rearrangement in order to re-establish lip anatomy, function and esthetics. The use of local flaps in lip reconstruction often follows oncologic resection of common skin malignancies including basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. When considering the types of flaps to use for lip defects of one- to two-third total length, a variety of flaps designs have been described, each with its benefits in drawbacks. Read More

Nonmelanoma Skin Cancers: Embryologically Relevant Sites and UV Exposure.

Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open 2020 Apr 7;8(4):e2683. Epub 2020 Apr 7.

Advanced Technologies for Regenerative Medicine and Inductive Surgery Research Center, University of Pavia, Pavia, Italy.

Background: Traditionally, nonmelanoma skin cancers (NMSCs) are considered mainly UV-related malignancies. Nevertheless, a strong correlation between the embryologically relevant sites (ERS) of the head and neck and the preferential sites of onset of basal cell carcinomas (BCCs) has long been supposed and demonstrated. The aim of this research was the investigation of the potential correlation between the ERS of the head and neck and the sites of tumor onset in all of the NMSCs. Read More

Expression profile of sonic hedgehog signaling-related molecules in basal cell carcinoma.

PLoS One 2019 22;14(11):e0225511. Epub 2019 Nov 22.

Department of Pathology, Jeju National University College of medicine, Jeju, South Korea.

Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common human cancer, characterized by aberrant activation of the hedgehog (HH) signaling pathway resulting from mutations in the patched 1 (PTCH1) or smoothened (SMO) genes. In the present study, to uncover the expression profile of HH signaling-related molecules, we thoroughly examined the mRNA and protein expression levels of six molecules including GLI1, GLI2, PTCH1, PTCH2, SHH, and SMO in BCC and various other cutaneous tumors. Real-time PCR analysis demonstrated that BCC showed remarkably enhanced mRNA expression of all HH molecules, except SMO compared to other skin tumors. Read More

Versatility of the O-Z flap for back reconstruction after giant basal cell carcinoma resection: A case report and review of the literature.

Int J Surg Case Rep 2019 11;63:23-26. Epub 2019 Sep 11.

Clinic of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Department of Experimental and Clinical Medicine, Marche Polytechnic University Medical School, Via Conca 71, 60126, Ancona, Italy.

Introduction: Giant basal cell carcinomas are rare and potentially aggressive skin malignancies that are infrequently reported in the Literature, and they usually require aggressive surgical resection and immediate soft tissue reconstruction with skin grafts or flaps. The large size of GBCCs has relevant implications not only for the metastatic potential, but even for the reconstructive challenging due to the possible limited availability of tissues for flap coverage.

Presentation Of Case: We report the peculiar case of an old patient who underwent to GBCC resection of the back measuring 16 × 13 cm, and immediate reconstruction with a large O to Z flap harvested from the back; one-year follow-up examination revealed a satisfactory result and no recurrence of the disease was observed.

STAT3, STAT5A, STAT5B and STAT6 proteins are overexpressed in human basal cell carcinoma.

Clin Exp Dermatol 2020 Mar 27;45(2):165-171. Epub 2019 Aug 27.

Department of Dermatology, Venereology and Allergology, Medical University of Gdańsk, Gdańsk, Poland.

Background: The molecular pathogenesis of basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is still not precisely described and is the subject of ongoing studies. The role of signal transducers and activators of transcription (STATs) in human epithelial carcinogenesis has been poorly investigated, but in the era of studies on inhibitors targeting STAT proteins this topic seems worth exploring. Increased expression of STAT3 in human nonmelanoma skin cancer (NMSC) has been confirmed in a few studies, but to our knowledge, expression of STAT5A, STAT5B and STAT6 in BCC has not been previously evaluated.

Defining skin cancer local recurrence.

J Am Acad Dermatol 2019 Aug;81(2):581-599

Department of Dermatology and Skin Science, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada.

Definitions of skin cancer recurrence are variable and nonstandardized, which can lead to inconsistent and potentially inappropriate management of tumors of uncertain recurrence status. Defining recurrence is important given the potential association with metastasis in both melanoma and nonmelanoma skin cancer. A review of the literature across multiple disciplines involved in the care of skin cancer patients reveals that although criteria for recurrence are provided in the majority of cases, most are vague and inconsistent.

Reconstruction of a subtotal septorhinectomy defect with a chimeric paramedian-pericranial forehead flap.

Am J Otolaryngol 2019 May - Jun;40(3):445-447. Epub 2019 Feb 19.

Otolaryngology and Facial Plastic Surgery Associates, Fort Worth, TX, United States of America.

The nose is a complex structure important for aesthetic appearance, social interaction, and respiration. Full thickness nasal defects with resection of the septum pose a significant challenge to the reconstructive surgeon due to the lack of local tissues to replace the nasal lining and significant risk of nasal collapse owing to the paucity of rigid infrastructure. The purpose of this paper is to present a unique case of nasal reconstruction utilizing a bilaminar paramedian forehead flap (combined pericranial flap and forehead flap) with embedded cantilever rib graft in a patient who underwent resection for an intranasal malignancy involving the septum and soft tissue envelope.
