Rationale and Options for Choosing an Optimal Closure Technique for Primary Midsagittal Osteochondrotomy of the Sternum. Part 3: Technical Decision Making Based on the Practice of Patient- Appropriate Medicine.

Crit Rev Biomed Eng 2019 ;47(1):59-99

Hamilton Health Sciences, Suite 515, 644 Main Street West, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada L8S 1A1.

The topographic anatomy of the sternum is similar in a healthy population. However, in a clinical subset of patients with comorbidities such as diabetes mellitus, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, high body mass index, chronic renal disease, or age-related osteoporosis, there are significant changes in the normal physiology that may influence overall patient outcome following trans-sternal intrathoracic surgery. These changes can create technical difficulties in reconstructing the bisected sternum and adversely affect the biomechanics of the thoracic wall, forcing difficult surgical choices with regard to implant options and increasing the cost of an otherwise routine cardiac surgery.

Rationale and Options for Choosing an Optimal Closure Technique for Primary Midsagittal Osteochondrotomy of the Sternum, Part 2: A Theoretical and Critical Review of Techniques and Fixation Devices.

Crit Rev Biomed Eng 2019 ;47(1):27-57

Hamilton Health Sciences, Suite 515, 644 Main Street West, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada L8S 1A1.

The intact one-piece sternum is indispensible to the thorax for its normal physiological biomechanics. To overcome tri-planar forces acting on the sternum following midsagittal osteochondrotomy, it must be reconstructed using an optimal technique to withstand distraction loads of normal respiration and violent cough. It should be fixed rigidly to reconstitute the anterior coronal column of the axial skeleton to maintain erect posture and prevent kyphosis. Read More

Transluminal washout and debridement of extraluminal contamination as an adjunct to endoscopic defect repair.

VideoGIE 2019 Feb 7;4(2):91-94. Epub 2018 Dec 7.

Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, Hershey, Pennsylvania, USA.

Background And Aims: GI tract perforations and anastomotic dehiscence are increasingly effectively being repaired endoscopically; however, well-known and long-held surgical principles must still be honored. One important principle is that significant extraluminal contamination must be washed out, debrided, and drained in conjunction with repair of the defect if the wound is to effectively heal and resolve. Here we describe the use of endoscopic washout and debridement of extraluminal contamination at the time of luminal defect closure in a 7-patient series at our institution, with video demonstration of 2 patients in the series.

Novel synthesized zinc oxide nanoparticles loaded alginate-chitosan biofilm to enhanced wound site activity and anti-septic abilities for the management of complicated abdominal wound dehiscence.

J Photochem Photobiol B 2019 Mar 30;192:124-130. Epub 2019 Jan 30.

Department of Emergency, Linyi Central Hospital, Linyi 276400, Shandong, China. Electronic address:

Wound dehiscence is a surgical complication and its management is inevitable because 25% to 35% of patients suffered from post laparotomy wound dehiscence. The excellent biodegradability and biocompatibility of chitosan and alginate have provided ample space for future developments in biomedical applications. Hence, the present work is directed towards the synthesis of robust biofilm made up of chitosan (CS), zinc oxide (ZnO) nanoparticles and Alginate (Alg). Read More

Blurring the boundary between open abdomen treatment and ventral hernia repair.

Langenbecks Arch Surg 2019 Feb 7. Epub 2019 Feb 7.

Department of Visceral and Transplant Surgery, University Hospital Zurich, Rämistrasse 100, CH-8091, Zürich, Switzerland.

Purpose: Therapeutic approaches for septic open abdomen treatment remain a major challenge with many uncertainties. The most convincing method is vacuum-assisted wound closure with mesh-mediated fascia traction with a protective plastic sheet placed on the viscera. As this plastic sheet and the mesh must be removed before final fascial closure, such a technique only allows temporary abdominal closure. Read More

Concealed cosmetic closure in total knee replacement surgery - A prospective audit assessing appearance and patient satisfaction.

J Clin Orthop Trauma 2019 Jan-Feb;10(1):111-116. Epub 2017 Nov 13.

Department of Orthopedics, P.D Hinduja Hospital and Medical Research Centre, Mumbai, India.

Objective: With the trend towards accelerated rehabilitation, the method of skin closure has become increasingly important in orthopedic surgery. It is imperative to evaluate a technique that provides superior clinical and cosmetic results specifically for TKA, due to relatively thin skin anterior to the knee making poor wound healing an issue of concern. We conducted a prospective, single-arm audit evaluating the patient assessments of incision cosmesis for a novel technique in TKA wound closure called Concealed Cosmetic Closure (CCC). Read More

Combined open and laparoscopic approach for repair of flank hernias: technique description and medium-term outcomes of a single surgeon.

Hernia 2019 Feb 30;23(1):157-165. Epub 2019 Jan 30.

Hernia Center, Hospital Alemão Oswaldo Cruz, R. Treze de Maio, 1815, 01327-001, São Paulo, SP, Brazil.

Purpose: A residual bulge in the lateral abdominal wall is a reason for patient dissatisfaction after flank hernia repair (FHR). We hypothesized that combining a laparoscopically-placed intraperitoneal mesh (IPOM) with onlay hernia repair performed through a small open incision would increase repair durability and decrease such residual bulges. We aim to report our medium-term outcomes with this technique. Read More

Prepectoral Wise-Pattern Staged Implant-Based Breast Reconstruction for Obese or Ptotic Patients.

Ann Plast Surg 2019 Jan 28. Epub 2019 Jan 28.

From the Department of Plastic Surgery, University of Virginia Health System, Charlottesville, VA.

Introduction: The obese or ptotic breast demonstrates significant difficulty in breast reconstruction after mastectomy with increased rates of perioperative complications compared with the general population, regardless of reconstruction type. Implant-based reconstruction in this patient population with the traditional horizontal elliptical skin-sparing mastectomy tends to have aesthetically displeasing qualities secondary to skin flap redundancy and blunting of the breast contour. Wise-pattern closures have been described with submuscular direct-to-implant and 2-stage reconstructions, with more favorable complication profile when staged. Read More

Feasibility of primary sternal plating for morbidly obese patients after cardiac surgery.

J Cardiothorac Surg 2019 Jan 28;14(1):25. Epub 2019 Jan 28.

Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, Pittsburgh, PA, USA.

Background: Morbidly obese patients (body mass index [BMI] ≥ 35 kg/m) who undergo cardiac surgery involving median sternotomy have a higher-than-normal risk of sternal dehiscence. To explore a potential solution to this problem, we examined the utility of transverse sternal plating for primary sternal closure in morbidly obese cardiac surgical patients.

Methods: We retrospectively reviewed data from cardiac surgical patients who underwent single primary xiphoid transverse titanium plate reinforcement for primary sternal closure from August 2009 to July 2010 (n = 8), and we compared their outcomes with those of patients with BMI ≥35 kg/m who underwent cardiac surgery without sternal plate reinforcement from April 2008 to July 2009 (n = 14).
