Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital, University of Queensland, Herston Qld, Australia.

Prosthetic replacements in the 19th and early 20th century were superseded by pedicled flaps and obturators. These have subsequently been superseded by free tissue transfer which currently is the mainstay of reconstructive jaw surgery. Although malignant and benign processes of the jaws are the predominant cause of segmental defects, a significant proportion still occurs due to trauma, or even iatrogenic causes such as radiotherapy.

Not All Gustilo Type IIIB Fractures Are Created Equal: Arterial Injury Impacts Limb Salvage Outcomes.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2017 Nov;140(5):1033-1041

New York, N.Y. From the Hansjörg Wyss Department of Plastic Surgery, New York University Langone Medical Center; and the Division of Plastic Surgery, Department of Surgery, Mount Sinai Health System.

Background: Open tibia fractures are commonly stratified by the Gustilo classification, an orthopedic grading system that does not incorporate the presence of arterial injury when limb perfusion is intact. In the authors' experience, however, the presence of arterial injury appears to negatively impact microsurgical outcomes.

Methods: In a retrospective review of 806 lower extremity reconstructions between 1979 and 2016, 361 soft-tissue flaps performed for Gustilo type IIIB/C coverage met inclusion criteria. Read More

J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2018 Jan 8;76(1):230.e1-230.e8. Epub 2017 Sep 8.

Fellow, Head and Neck Oncologic and Microvascular Reconstructive Surgery, Division of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, University of Miami-Miller School of Medicine/Jackson Health System, Miami, FL.

Osteoradionecrosis (ORN) is a well-known and usually late complication of radiation therapy in the treatment of head and neck cancer. Although the therapy can be life extending, it also produces tissue toxicity in ipsilateral and contralateral tissues in an acute and chronic fashion. In the most severe cases of ORN, such as the one presented in this report, bilateral disease results in the need for total mandibulectomy and creates a tremendous reconstructive challenge. Read More

Microvascular Tissue Transfers for Midfacial and Anterior Cranial Base Reconstruction.

J Craniofac Surg 2017 May;28(3):659-663

Department of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery, Hacettepe University Faculty of Medicine, Ankara, Turkey.

Reconstruction of a midfacial defect can represent a difficult challenge for the plastic surgeon. Although many midfacial deformities have traumatic or congenital origins, the vast majority of head and neck defects occur after resection of malignant head and neck neoplasms. Autogenous reconstruction is now routinely performed for larger, complex defects resulting from surgical resection or trauma. Read More

Int J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2017 Aug 19;46(8):946-957. Epub 2017 Apr 19.

Department of Maxillofacial, Plastic, Reconstructive and aesthetic Surgery, Henri Mondor Hospital, Créteil, France.

Very few surgical teams currently use totally independent and free solutions to perform three-dimensional (3D) surgical modelling for osseous free flaps in reconstructive surgery. This study assessed the precision and technical reproducibility of a 3D surgical modelling protocol using free open-source software in mandibular reconstruction with fibula free flaps and surgical guides. Precision was assessed through comparisons of the 3D surgical guide to the sterilized 3D-printed guide, determining accuracy to the millimetre level. Read More

Morphological Study of the Proximal Fibular Articular Surface Using Computed Tomography: Which Side Is Preferred for Proximal Fibular Flap in Wrist Arthroplasty?

J Reconstr Microsurg 2017 Feb 21;33(2):118-123. Epub 2016 Oct 21.

Department of Radiology, Kyung Hee University Hospital at Gangdong, School of Medicine, Kyung Hee University, Seoul, Republic of Korea.

 Although proximal fibular flaps have been widely applied in wrist arthroplasty, controversy remains regarding which side of the proximal fibula is better for reconstruction of the distal radius. If the articular surface of the proximal fibula shows dorsal tilting, the ipsilateral (right) proximal fibula should be harvested in right wrist arthroplasty because the articular surface of the distal radius normally has volar tilt. This study investigated anatomical similarities between the proximal fibular articular surface and the distal radius articular surface based on morphologic analysis of the proximal fibula using computed tomography (CT).
