Laparoscopic omental flap for the treatment of thoracic aortic graft infection: report of two cases and review of the literature.

J Cardiothorac Surg 2020 May 29;15(1):120. Epub 2020 May 29.

Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, First Affiliated Hospital of Zhengzhou University, Zhengzhou, China.

Background: Thoracic aortic graft infection (TAGI) is a rare and serious complication after surgery for which the treatment is controversial and challenging. Rather than following the traditional surgical strategy of graft replacement and extensive debridement, we have chosen to preserve the graft and cover it by a laparoscopic omental flap. In this article, we describe the clinical manifestation, diagnostic modalities, and treatment of this disease and analyze the role of laparoscopic omental flaps in its treatment. Read More

Double free flaps in oral cavity and oropharynx reconstruction: Systematic review, indications and limits.

Oral Oncol 2020 May 24;104:104637. Epub 2020 Mar 24.

Otorhinolaryngology Unit, University Hospital AOUI Borgo Trento, Department of Surgery, Dentistry, Paediatrics and Gynaecology, University of Verona, Verona, Italy.

The simultaneous use of two different free flaps, harvested from distinct donor sites, has demonstrated a reasonable degree of safety and success rates in head and neck composite defects reconstruction. Unfortunately, their relatively low frequent use, together with the lack of proper statistics on their management strategies, make their indications weak of robust conclusions to better define their role in common practice. The aim of the present study was to review the literature of the last 15 years regarding simultaneous free flap transposition, presenting advantages, disadvantages, and results of this technique, with the final purpose to propose an up-to-date panorama for the use of double free flap for complex head and neck defects reconstruction.

Subcutaneous pedicle transposition flap for nasal ala defect reconstruction: a forgotten technique.

Acta Dermatovenerol Alp Pannonica Adriat 2020 Mar;29(1):27-29

Department of Dermatology, Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro Central Hospital, Vila Real, Portugal.

As a central and prominent structure of the face, the nose has particular aesthetic and functional importance and constitutes a true reconstructive challenge. Subcutaneous transposition flaps are rarely used in this region, but the surgical technique can be modified for the use of a simple flap with good aesthetic results, thereby gaining a prominent place in the range of options available for nasal ala reconstruction. We present a unique case report of a modified subcutaneous pedicle transposition flap for nasal ala defect reconstruction, showing that this flap can be applied on this area with good aesthetic results and a simple technique.

Service de dermatologie, Hôpital Saint-André, Centre hospitalier universitaire de Bordeaux, 1, rue Jean-Burguet, 33000 Bordeaux, France.

The practice of surgical dermatology allows the dermatologist to take overall management of patients, particularly in the domain of skin cancer. It is the dermatologist who makes a diagnosis based on his expertise and his understanding, determines the tumour edges and the surgical margins to be applied, carries out the excision and repair procedures, and performs monitoring. Such comprehensive management requires knowledge of fundamental principles that allow for repair procedures suited to specific sites. Read More

The Triceps Traction Test: A Decision Tool for the Choice of Stabilizing Flap After In Situ Decompression of the Ulnar Nerve.

Tech Hand Up Extrem Surg 2020 Jun;24(2):102-106

Division of Plastic Surgery.

Purpose: Recent evidence demonstrates that in situ decompression has comparable outcomes to other surgical techniques for cubital tunnel syndrome. However, this technique does not address the instability of the ulnar nerve, a common indication to transpose the ulnar nerve. Transposition of the ulnar nerve can potentially devascularize the ulnar nerve, stabilizing flaps block subluxation of the ulnar nerve and thereby negate the need for transposition. Read More

Hand Doppler flowmetry for surgical planning of pedicled flap in extensive full-thickness scalp reconstruction.

Surg Oncol 2020 Mar 25;32:49-56. Epub 2019 Oct 25.

Department of Maxillofacial Surgery, University Federico II, Via Pansini 9, 80100, Naples, Italy.

Reconstruction of scalp defects can be performed with local flaps for medium to large defects (2-25 cm) and microvascular free flaps for extensive full-thickness scalp reconstruction greater than 25 cm. Doppler flowmetry with its ability to exactly mark the course of arteries on the overlying skin, is a useful tool for the surgical planning of large local flaps. In our retrospective study conducted on 38 patients (all patients had malignancies or post-traumatic scalp defects), consisting of 39 total surgical procedures, we studied the impact of doppler ultrasonic flowmetry in the surgical planning for pedicled flaps in extensive full-thickness scalp reconstruction (>25 cm) by evaluating overall flap survival rate.

The Center for Dermatology Care, 267 West Hillcrest Drive, Thousand Oaks, CA 91360, USA; Keck School of Medicine of University of Southern California, Los Angeles, CA, USA.

To avoid complications or bad results following reconstruction of skin cancer defects, there are several factors that can be incorporated into the design and execution of repairs. These techniques not only decrease the need to correct bad results, they improve the final aesthetic and functional outcome. So although one surgeon might focus on standard corrective treatments, another might use elements of flap design and implementation that will decrease the need for such corrective procedures.

A Conceptual Approach to Designing Transposition Flaps.

Dermatol Surg 2020 01;46(1):9-19

All authors are affiliated with the Department of Dermatology, University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center, Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio.

Background: The large number of transposition flap geometries available for cutaneous reconstruction often makes the design of these flaps difficult for less experienced dermatologic surgeons.

Objective: To present a conceptual approach to designing transposition flaps based on 2 elementary angles.

Materials And Methods: First, a simplified framework for designing transposition flaps is presented, based on: (1) the takeoff point of the flap, (2) the angle between the primary limb and the primary defect (Angle A), and (3) the angle between the secondary limb and the primary limb (Angle B).

A Belmahi

Ann Chir Plast Esthet 2019 Nov 8;64(5-6):540-551. Epub 2019 Jul 8.

Clinique des nations unies, rue Abou Derr, Agdal, Rabat, Maroc. Electronic address:

The unfavorable results in scalp defects treatment are represented essentially by: local flap necrosis; cicatricial alopecia - calvarial contour defects; wide and poorly positioned scalp's scars. The secondary surgeries dealing with the new scalp defect (necrosis or alopecia) include: readvancement of prior flaps-raising a new local flap-tissu expansion - skin grafts - free flaps, bringing skin, muscle or vascularized bone. Their indications depend on the size of this defect, the presence of pericranium, the vascular condition of the scalp and the general condition of the patient. Read More

Current indications for the intrathoracic transposition of the omentum.

J Cardiothorac Surg 2019 Jun 10;14(1):103. Epub 2019 Jun 10.

Surgery IV Discipline, M5 Department, University of Medicine and Pharmacy from Tirgu-Mures, 540091 Bujorului 2A, Tirgu-Mures, Romania.

Background: The intrathoracic transposition of the omentum (ITO) has been reported with more or less good results in various clinical circumstances but with no clear guidelines or indications.

Methodology And Review: This article reviews the main clinical situations in which omento-plasty (OP) may be taken into consideration by the thoracic surgeons: mediastinitis and deep sternal infections after median sternotomy, reinforcement of the eso-gastric anastomosis after esophagectomy, prevention and treatment of the bronchial fistula after pulmonary resection, space-filling procedures for empyema, mediastinal tracheostomy, management of the infected intrathoracic vascular grafts / ventricular assist devices and heart OP. For each clinical situation we have performed a literature review with analysis of the most relevant published papers searching for an evidence-based approach for the use of the ITO/OP in thoracic surgery.

Prophylactic Use of Buccal Fat Flaps to Improve Oral Mucosal Healing following Furlow Palatoplasty.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2019 04;143(4):1179-1183

Chicago, Ill. From the Division of Plastic Surgery, Lurie Children's Hospital of Northwestern Feinberg School of Medicine.

Furlow palatoplasty is increasingly used both for primary palatoplasty and for secondary correction of velopharyngeal insufficiency. Although Furlow palatoplasty offers the advantage of lengthening the palate, the most tenuous component of the oral mucosal repair is anterior transposition of the oral mucosal Z-plasty flap, with superficial separation of the oral mucosa observed in up to 53 percent of cases of secondary Furlow palatoplasty. To mitigate this problem, the authors prophylactically placed pedicled buccal fat pad flaps to provide an additional vascular layer to promote healing of the overlying oral mucosal Z-plasty flap.
