Simulation and optimization of reconstructive surgery procedures on human skin.

J Mech Behav Biomed Mater 2022 Apr 9;131:105215. Epub 2022 Apr 9.

Institute of Biomechanics, Graz University of Technology, Stremayrgasse 16/II, 8010 Graz, Austria.

The complex procedures involved in the reconstructive surgery of human skin to minimize post-operative scarring are here modeled by means of an automated computational tool. A finite strain no-compression membrane model accounting for the tendency to develop wrinkling regions in the skin is presented. The constitutive behavior of the material is then described by a suitable hyperelastic incompressible potential. Read More

Spotlight on the Internal Limiting Membrane Technique for Macular Holes: Current Perspectives.

Clin Ophthalmol 2022 6;16:1069-1084. Epub 2022 Apr 6.

Ophthalmology Department, "Fondazione Policlinico Universitario A. Gemelli, IRCCS", Rome, 00168, Italy.

Pars plana vitrectomy has become the standard procedure for primary macular holes (MHs) repair, including the removal of the posterior cortical vitreous, the stripping of eventual epiretinal membranes, and finally an intraocular gas tamponade. During this procedure, peeling the internal limiting membrane (ILM) has been proven to increase closure rates and avoid postoperative reopening in several researches. In fact, even in large MHs more than 400 µm, the advantage of peeling off the ILM was highlighted by better anatomical closure rates. Read More

The modified Belt-Fuqua procedure using an asymmetric "furisode" sleeve for proximal hypospadias with severe curvature.

J Pediatr Urol 2022 Mar 22. Epub 2022 Mar 22.

Department of Urology, Kanagawa Children's Medical Center, 2-138-4 Mutsukawa, Minami-ku, Yokohama, 232-8555, Japan. Electronic address:

Introduction And Objectives: Proximal hypospadias repair is a challenge in the pediatric urology field. Although the previous reports showed that the Belt-Fuqua staged procedure is reliable with a low complication rate for midshaft hypospadias, this procedure has not been generally applied to more proximal hypospadias with severe ventral curvature due to technical limitations. To solve these technical limitations, we developed a modified Belt-Fuqua procedure using an asymmetric long skin sleeve looking like a Japanese long-sleeved Kimono called a "furisode". Read More

Plast Reconstr Surg 2022 Mar;149(3):742-749

From the Division of Plastic, Reconstructive, Maxillofacial, and Oral Surgery, Duke University Medical Center; Department of Plastic Surgery, University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center; and Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.

Summary: Vein grafts enable soft-tissue reconstruction in cases of insufficient pedicle length, a lack of nearby recipient vessels, and a wide zone of injury caused by trauma or radiation therapy. The purpose of this article is to provide a comprehensive review of vein grafts in free flap reconstruction focusing on the timing of arteriovenous loops, complications, and surgical technique. Vein graft indications, types of vein grafts, and location-specific considerations are also reviewed. Read More

Facial Landmark Reconstruction with a Combination of Local Flaps: A Novel Technique for Landmark Destruction.

Plast Surg (Oakv) 2022 Feb 16;30(1):68-75. Epub 2020 Jul 16.

Department of Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery, the First Hospital of Shanxi Medical University, Taiyuan City, Shanxi Province, China.

Background: Various methods of landmark reconstruction have been discussed in medical literature, but few describe defects involving the rim of the landmark. For landmark malposition, such as eyelid ectropion, borders are abnormally elongated by scar contracture. The reconstruction should thus restore both the cutaneous defect and the anatomical structure. Read More

Glabellar flap technique in oculoplastic surgery.

Indian J Ophthalmol 2022 Jan;70(1):281-286

Department of Ophthalmology, Medical University Pleven, Pleven, Bulgaria.

Facial skin defect reconstruction in medial-canthal area of the lids can be a challenge even when performed by a skilled surgeon. The excision of large tumors in this area leads to significant surgical defects that cannot be repaired by merely closing the wound. The glabellar area provides a source of redundant skin with similar characteristics to that of the medial-canthal lid area. Read More

Evaluation of Intraoperative Triamcinolone Injection or Primary Lobe Tacking (Pexing) Sutures for Preventing Pincushioning in Bilobed Transposition Flaps.

Dermatol Surg 2022 Feb;48(2):191-194

Cutaneous Oncology Unit, The Skin Centre, Tauranga, New Zealand.

Background: Bilobed transposition flaps are prone to pincushioning (trapdooring), whereby contraction of the flap over the wound bed may produce an unsatisfactory functional and aesthetic outcome. There are several proposed methods to prevent this, but there is currently no clear consensus on the ideal technique.

Objective: To compare primary lobe pexing sutures versus intraoperative triamcinolone (TAC) injection as methods to prevent pincushioning in bilobed transposition flaps. Read More

Service de dermatologie, hôpital Saint-Vincent-de-Paul, groupe hospitalier de l'institut catholique de Lille, boulevard de Belfort, 59000 Lille, France; Université Catholique de Lille, France.

Background: Skin tumors commonly occur on the legs and are treated in first line by surgery. Several techniques are available to repair lower limb defects: secondary-intention healing, partial closure, primary closure with or without an s-plasty, or a skin graft. The lack of tissue laxity of the surrounding skin does not allow several local flaps (advancement, rotation, or transposition). Read More

Microsurgery 2021 Nov 9;41(8):743-752. Epub 2021 Sep 9.

Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Department of Surgery, Taichung Veterans General Hospital, Taichung, Taiwan.

Background: Anterolateral thigh (ALT) free flap is one of the most popular options for surgeons when reconstructing head and neck defects. When the recipient vessels are located in a remote site, a flap with adequate pedicle length is essential. The conventional methods of either pedicle elongation or fabricating combined flap increase the total surgical time. Read More

Successful basal cell carcinoma defect reconstruction using combination of rotation and advancement flap: Two case reports.

Dermatol Reports 2021 Aug 5;13(2):9087. Epub 2021 Aug 5.

Department of Dermatology and Venereology, Faculty of Medicine, Hasanuddin University, Makassar, South Sulawesi, Indonesia.

Defects resulting from surgical procedure may be challenging to reconstruct depending on the size and location. In case of large defects, primary closure is often not possible and thus requires skin flap or graft. In such cases, skin flap is advantageous as it produces a similar color and texture with the surrounding tissue. Read More
