Immediate reconstruction of segmental mandibular defects via tissue engineering.

Proc (Bayl Univ Med Cent) 2022 3;35(3):391-393. Epub 2022 Mar 3.

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Baylor University Medical Center and Texas A&M College of Dentistry, Dallas, Texas.

Ameloblastomas are benign, locally invasive odontogenic tumors that comprise approximately 1% of tumors within the jaws, with 66% located in the posterior mandible. If left untreated, these lesions can reach enormous size, resulting in considerable deformity and associated morbidity. Traditionally, defects >6 cm warranted a free-flap fibula transfer or iliac crest autogenous graft. Read More

Clinical Application of the Musculoperiosteal Iliac Flap for Osteonecrosis of the Femoral Head.

Ann Plast Surg 2021 12;87(6):e129-e136

JMS Burn and Reconstruction Center, Jackson, MS.

Background: Osteonecrosis of the femoral head (ONFH) often affects young, active patients, and the femoral head's preservation is the primary goal of treatment for this disease. Vascularized iliac crest bone grafting is one of the many vascularized procedures used in treating ONHF. In some cases, we selectively performed this procedure using the musculoperiosteal iliac flap with the ascending branch of the lateral femoral circumflex artery for ONFH treatment. Read More

Free double-paddle superficial circumflex iliac perforator flap transfer for partial maxillectomy reconstruction: A case report.

Microsurgery 2022 Jan 7;42(1):84-88. Epub 2021 Oct 7.

Department of Plastic Surgery, Tokyo Metropolitan Bokutoh Hospital, Tokyo, Japan.

Partial maxillectomy for maxillary sinus cancer treatment requires soft tissue reconstruction with enough bulk to occupy the large-volume defect. Deep inferior epigastric artery-based flaps and subscapular artery-based flaps are commonly used, but necessitate invasive muscle dissection or position change and a large recipient vessel. The aim of this report was to present a case of partial maxillectomy defect successfully reconstructed with a superficial circumflex iliac artery (SCIA) perforator (SCIP) flap, to address these drawbacks.

Defining the Dimensions of Periosteal Free Tissue Transfer Harvest Sites.

Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open 2021 Oct 4;9(10):e3846. Epub 2021 Oct 4.

Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District, Wollongong Hospital, Wollongong, New South Wales, Australia.

Information about the use and donor site morbidity of periosteal free flaps in head and neck reconstruction is limited. The aim of this study was to examine potential periosteal free flap donor sites with respect to their dimensions, tissue and pedicle characteristics, and predicted donor site morbidity in a cadaveric model. The following cadaveric periosteal specimens with a vascular pedicle were harvested using standard surgical approaches: skull, chest wall, sternum, scapula, iliac crest, femur, and humerus.

Assessment of the Oral Delivery of a Myelin Basic Protein Gene Promoter with Antiapoptotic bcl-x (pMBP-bcl-x) DNA by Cyclic Peptide Nanotubes with Two Aspect Ratios and Its Biodistribution in the Brain and Spinal Cord.

Mol Pharm 2021 07 10;18(7):2556-2573. Epub 2021 Jun 10.

Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences, College of Medicine, Taipei Medical University, Taipei 111, Taiwan.

Cyclo-(D-Trp-Tyr) peptide nanotubes (PNTs) were reported to be potential carriers for oral gene delivery in our previous study; however, the effect of the aspect ratio (AR) of these PNTs on gene delivery could affect penetration or interception in biological environments. The aim of this study was to assess the feasibility of cyclo-(D-Trp-Tyr) PNTs with two ARs as carriers for oral pMBP-bcl-x- delivery to the spinal cord to treat spinal cord injury (SCI). We evaluated the biodistribution of oligodendrocyte (OLG)-specific myelin basic protein gene promoter-driven antiapoptotic DNA (pMBP-bcl-x) to the brain and spinal cord delivered with cyclo-(D-Trp-Tyr) PNTs with large (L) and small (S) PNTs with two ARs.

Arthroscopic, Implant-Free Bone-Grafting for Shoulder Instability with Glenoid Bone Loss.

JBJS Essent Surg Tech 2020 Jan-Mar;10(1). Epub 2020 Mar 23.

Vienna Shoulder & Sports Clinic, Vienna, Austria.

Anterior shoulder instability is commonly associated with injuries to the labrocapsular structures of the glenohumeral joint and with osseous glenoid defects of varying degree. If the bone defect exceeds a clinically relevant threshold, mere soft-tissue repairs result in high rates of recurrent instability and the glenoid needs to be reconstructed with osseous augmentation. The most popular techniques for glenoid reconstruction include variations of coracoid transfer or bone-block procedures; however, these procedures are not free from risks and complications, which are often related to the method of fixation.

Biomechanics of the Sacroiliac Joint: Anatomy, Function, Biomechanics, Sexual Dimorphism, and Causes of Pain.

Int J Spine Surg 2020 Feb 10;14(Suppl 1):3-13. Epub 2020 Feb 10.

Engineering Center for Orthopaedic Research Excellence (E-CORE), Departments of Bioengineering and Orthopaedics, The University of Toledo, Toledo, Ohio.

Background: The sacroiliac joints (SIJs), the largest axial joints in the body, sit in between the sacrum and pelvic bones on either side. They connect the spine to the pelvis and thus facilitate load transfer from the lumbar spine to the lower extremities. The majority of low back pain (LBP) is perceived to originate from the lumbar spine; however, another likely source of LBP that is mostly overlooked is the SIJ. Read More

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.

Medial approach for minimally-invasive harvesting of a deep circumflex iliac artery flap for reconstruction of the jaw using virtual surgical planning and CAD/CAM technology.

Br J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2017 Nov 21;55(9):946-951. Epub 2017 Oct 21.

Department of Oral, Maxillofacial and Facial Plastic Surgery, RWTH Aachen University Hospital, Aachen, Germany.

Donor site morbidity is the most common limitation of the deep circumflex iliac artery (DCIA) flap, so the purpose of this paper is to describe a new, minimally-invasive, approach to its harvest using virtual surgical planning and CAD/CAM technology to reduce functional and aesthetic morbidity at the donor site. Virtual surgical planning was based on preoperative computed tomographic data. A newly-designed surgical guide made using CAD/CAM technology was used to transfer the virtual surgical plan to the site of operation. Read More
