Soft Tissue Procedures in the Multiply Operated on Knee Replacement Patient.

Orthop Clin North Am 2022 Jul;53(3):267-276

Department of Orthopaedics, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

In the multiply operated on knee replacement, no one soft tissue procedure is vastly superior to another. The most extensive literature available is in relation to muscle flaps, which will continue to be the workhorse technique for orthopedic and plastic reconstructive surgeons for the foreseeable future. Closed incision negative pressure wound therapy may prove to be a superior method in time but further large-scale studies are required to expand our understanding of this technique. Read More

Comparing running vs interrupted sutures for skin closure: A systematic review and meta-analysis.

Int Wound J 2022 Jun 17. Epub 2022 Jun 17.

Department of Plastic Surgery, Peking Union Medical College Hospital, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences and Peking Union Medical College, Beijing, China.

Continuous sutures and interrupted sutures have been widely applied to skin closure after non-obstetric surgery or traumatic wounds. Usually, continuous sutures were divided into transdermal or subcuticular sutures according to whether the stitches were placed through or below the epidermal layer. Interrupted sutures, on the other hand, involved penetration of the loose connective tissue beneath the skin layers, with stitches placed through the external skin layer. Read More

Use of Biologic Agents for Lip and Cheek Reconstruction.

Semin Plast Surg 2022 Feb 31;36(1):26-32. Epub 2021 Dec 31.

Department of Plastic Surgery, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, Texas.

The unique requirements of reconstructing cheek defects, often with its proximity to the mobile elements of the face including the lip and the eyelid, have been met very handily with the directed and thoughtful use of biologic wound healing agents. One of the key advantages of these agents is their ability to provide coverage for the mobile elements of the cheek and the lip in patients with multiple co-morbidities. These agents are successfully used where the standard cheek closure techniques including cervicofacial advancement flap are contraindicated due to its anesthetic requirement. Read More

Use of Biologic Agents in Nasal and Scalp Reconstruction.

Semin Plast Surg 2022 Feb 9;36(1):17-25. Epub 2022 Mar 9.

Department of Plastic Surgery, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, Texas.

Oncologic reconstruction of the nose and scalp following Mohs micrographic surgery poses a significant challenge for plastic surgeons. While these defects are traditionally reconstructed using primary closure techniques, skin grafts, local flaps, pedicled flaps, and free tissue transfer, the incorporation of biologic healing wound agents such as Integra and Cytal provides patients and surgeons with alterative reconstructive options without additional donor site morbidity. Herein, we review the use of biologic agents used in soft tissue reconstruction of the nose and scalp following Mohs surgery. Read More
