Correction of Tanzer Type IIB Constricted Ears via Z-shaped Double V-Y Advancement Flaps.

Ann Plast Surg 2019 Mar;82(3):284-288

From the Department of Burn and Plastic Surgery, West China Hospital, Sichuan University, Chengdu, China.

Background: Correction of Tanzer type IIB constricted ears requires sufficient expansion of the auricular skin to cover the reconstructed cartilaginous framework. To obtain an adequately sized skin cover, skin flap transposition from periauricular donor sites has been described; however, it remains challenging to obtain enough skin to enable satisfactory reconstruction. Herein, we describe a novel method that uses 2 local flaps comprising superoauricular, retroauricular, and preauricular soft tissue to expand the skin cover and correct Tanzer type IIB deformity.

Propeller perforator flaps in forearm and hand reconstruction.

Eur J Orthop Surg Traumatol 2019 Feb 26;29(2):357-366. Epub 2018 Oct 26.

Clinical Hospital of Rehabilitation Cluj Napoca, University of Medicine Iuliu Hatieganu Cluj Napoca, Str. Viilor Nr. 46-50, 400347, Cluj Napoca, Cluj, Romania.

After a long history in flaps' surgery, the perforator flaps became the most used flaps nowadays. From the beginning, their use as free flaps diminished substantially the donor site morbidity. In the attempt to not only diminish the donor site morbidity, but also to achieve more similar reconstructions, a new concept appeared 20 years ago: local perforator flaps. Read More

Gracilis transplantation and temporalis transposition in longstanding facial palsy in adults: Patient-reported and aesthetic outcomes.

J Craniomaxillofac Surg 2018 Dec 26;46(12):2144-2149. Epub 2018 Sep 26.

Department of Plastic Surgery, University of Groningen and University Medical Centre Groningen, Groningen, the Netherlands.

Background: In longstanding facial palsy, gracilis free functional muscle transfer (FFMT) is currently considered to be the gold standard in smile reanimation. An alternative to muscle free flaps is local muscle transposition, with the temporalis muscle transposition being the preferred procedure, because of its direction of pull when transposed. The present study aimed to compare outcomes of gracilis FFMT neurotised by the masseteric nerve and temporalis muscle transposition in longstanding facial palsy using patient-reported and aesthetic outcomes.

Department of Plastic Surgery, Isala Klinieken Zwolle, Zwolle, The Netherlands.

Surgical treatment of recurrent and persistent carpal tunnel syndrome by repeat carpal tunnel release combined with soft tissue nerve coverage results in a higher success rate for symptomatic relief in the presence of a scarred median nerve. Several techniques, including local pedicled flaps, transposition flaps from the distal forearm, and free flaps, have been described, but consensus regarding a preferred technique has not been reached. The dorsal ulnar artery flap or Becker flap is a local fasciocutaneous flap based on a dorsal perforating branch of the ulnar artery that can be used for soft tissue coverage of the median nerve.

Mixed facial reanimation technique to treat paralysis in medium-term cases.

J Craniomaxillofac Surg 2018 May 14;46(5):868-874. Epub 2018 Mar 14.

Maxillo-Facial Surgery Department. (Head: Professor C. Marchetti), Sant'Orsola-Malpighi Hospital, University of Bologna, via Albertoni 15, Bologna, Italy.

Recent facial paralyses, in which fibrillations of the mimetic muscles are still detectable by electromyography (EMG), allow facial reanimation based on giving new neural stimuli to musculature. However, if more time has elapsed, mimetic muscles can undergo irreversible atrophy, and providing a new neural stimulus is simply not effective. In these cases function is provided by transferring free flaps into the face or transposing masticatory muscles to reinstitute major movements, such as eyelid closure and smiling. Read More

G Ital Dermatol Venereol 2018 Apr;153(2):278-282

Division of Plastic Surgery, Department of Surgical Sciences, University of Parma, Parma, Italy.

The skin cancers of the head and neck district are localized mostly on the nose, which, by being in the center of the mid-face, has an important aesthetic role. Therefore, many reconstructive techniques have been studied; among them regional skin flaps appeared the most suitable since they guaranteed the oncological radicality as well as a good aesthetic outcome. In this paper, we present our experience with the use of the Zitelli bilobed flap, which is defined as a double transposition flap for the reconstruction of the nose defects. Read More

Limberg fasciocutaneous transposition flap for the coverage of an exposed hip implant in a patient affected by ewing sarcoma.

Int J Surg Case Rep 2017 27;41:516-519. Epub 2017 Nov 27.

Multidisciplinary Department of Medical-Surgical and Dental Specialties, Plastic Surgery Unit, Università degli Studi della Campania "Luigi Vanvitelli", Piazza Luigi Miraglia, 1-80138 Naples, Italy.

Introduction: Hemipelvectomy with immediate reconstruction with prosthetic devices for the surgical treatment of malignant tumors is an invasive procedure with many possible complications such as wound breakdown, seroma, hematoma and infection.The treatment of an exposed hip implant in these cluster of patient is extremely challenging and the literature shows how negative pressure wound therapy and myocutaneous, both pedicled and free, flaps are workhorses in these situations.

Case Report: In this paper we report a successful coverage of exposed prosthetic hip implant with a local fasciocutaneous flap in a patient in which any other kind of reconstruction was not feasible. Read More

Topology, Geometry, and Mechanics of Z-Plasty.

Phys Rev Lett 2018 Feb;120(6):068101

Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, Harvard University, 29 Oxford Street, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02138, USA.

Reconstructive surgeries often use topological manipulation of tissue to minimize postoperative scarring. The most common version of this, Z-plasty, involves modifying a straight line cut into a Z shape, followed by a rotational transposition of the resulting triangular pedicle flaps, and a final restitching of the wound. This locally reorients the anisotropic stress field and reduces the potential for scarring. Read More

The pedicled internal pudendal artery perforator (PIPAP) flap for ischial pressure sore reconstruction: Technique and long-term outcome of a cohort study.

J Plast Reconstr Aesthet Surg 2018 Jun 7;71(6):889-894. Epub 2018 Feb 7.

Red Cross Hospital, Department of Plastic, Reconstructive and Hand Surgery, Vondellaan 13, 1942 LE, Beverwijk, The Netherlands; Department of Plastic, Reconstructive and Hand Surgery, Amsterdam Movement Sciences, VU University Medical Centre, De Boelelaan 1117, 1081 HV, Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Electronic address:

Background: The ischial region is the site most affected by pressure sores and has the highest recurrence and complication rates compared to other affected sites. We developed a practical and safe pedicled flap for reconstruction of ischial pressure sores based on the rich available perforators from the internal pudendal artery and the surplus of skin at the infragluteal fold.

Methods: A retrospective cohort study was conducted in all patients who underwent ischial pressure ulcer reconstruction using the PIPAP flap between March 2010 and March 2017. Read More

Esophageal reconstruction after oncological total laryngopharyngoesophagectomy: Algorithmic approach.

Microsurgery 2019 Jan 5;39(1):6-13. Epub 2018 Feb 5.

Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Department of Surgery, National Cheng Kung University Hospital, College of Medicine, National Cheng Kung University, Tainan, Taiwan.

Background: Reconstruction for total laryngopharyngoesophagectomy is accomplished mainly by gastrointestinal transposition but can be complicated by anastomotic tension or associated neck-skin defect. Here, we present the results of total esophageal reconstruction by gastrointestinal transposition alone or with additional free tissue transfer and propose an algorithm accordingly.

Methods: We reviewed patients who had oncologic total laryngopharyngoesophagectomy between January 2012 and January 2016. Read More
