Prepuce sparing: Use of Z-plasty for treatment of phimosis and scarred foreskin.

J Pediatr Urol 2018 Dec 8;14(6):545.e1-545.e4. Epub 2018 Jun 8.

Department of Urology, New York-Presbyterian Weill Cornell Medical Center (MKH), New York, NY, USA.

Introduction And Objectives: The desire to preserve the prepuce is often based on cultural norms. Recently, the concept of "genital autonomy" has been invoked to delay circumcision (or any genital altering procedure) until the individual reaches maturity and can make his or her own decision. However, some uncircumcised boys develop one or more episodes of balanitis resulting in scarring of the prepuce and pathologic phimosis which is difficult to treat. Read More

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Kangdong Sacred Heart Hospital, Hallym University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Post-traumatic scar deformations are common in many skin injury cases. These are usually aesthetic problems, but if these deformations impair mobility and the patient feels uncomfortable, we must resolve them. In a patient with a lateral post-traumatic scar fold in the lateral canthus that shortened the horizontal orbital fissure and created traction on eye opening, we performed modified classic Z-plasty, resulting in aesthetic and functional improvements without recurrence.

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

Trimorphic extreme clubfoot deformities and their management by triple surgical skin expanders- DOLAR, DOLARZ and DOLARZ-E (evidence based mega-corrections without arthrodesis).

Authors:
Rattan L Mittal

Int Orthop 2018 06 17;42(6):1297-1306. Epub 2018 Feb 17.

Mittal Ortho Centre, 97, New Lal Bagh Colony, Patiala, Punjab, 147001, India.

Aim/purpose: Extreme congenital club foot deformities are common in developing countries, presenting at birth, persisting in children, adolescents and adults; as untreated/under-corrected by conservative and/or surgical means. Scores of confusing names exist in literature for such deformities with no good treatment available; mostly advocating unacceptable arthrodesis. The author researched this grey area for more than 40 years and successfully innovated improved surgical corrections, more acceptable to patients. Read More

Surgical management of digital ischemia caused by constriction band formation in a patient with ichthyosis vulgaris.

J Surg Case Rep 2017 Sep 19;2017(9):rjx183. Epub 2017 Sep 19.

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Brown University, Providence, 235 Plain Street, Suite 203, RI 02905, USA.

Ichthyosis is a broad and loosely defined group of hereditary and acquired disorders characterized by filaggrin dysfunction and impaired epidermal homeostasis that results in dry, scaly and thickened skin. Individuals with truncation mutations in the profilaggrin gene coding for filaggrin are strongly predisposed to severe forms of ichthyosis. The phenotypical expression of ichthyosis caused by the same genotypical mutation can vary considerably in severity and in regards to how much constricting scar tissue develops. Read More

Maximum cosmesis for patients with primary hyperparathyroidism: a case for larger incisions.

J Surg Case Rep 2017 Oct 20;2017(10):rjx193. Epub 2017 Oct 20.

Division of Subspecialty General Surgery, Mayo Clinic College of Medicine, Rochester, MN, USA.

While minimally invasive parathyroidectomy is an advantage to many properly selected patients, longer incisions and even wide skin resection may be optimal in a select few. We present an 80-year-old woman with primary hyperparathyroidism and bothersome excess neck skin and subcutaneous fat. The parathyroid adenoma was easily excised through a vertically-oriented cervical excision that removed an ellipse of fat and skin. Read More

Neck Contouring Without Rhytidectomy in the Presence of Excess Skin.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2018 Apr 22;42(2):464-470. Epub 2017 Dec 22.

, Cleveland, OH, 44124, USA.

Background: Patients with severe neck skin laxity due to excess submental adipose tissue have required either standard rhytidectomy or direct excision of neck skin with Z-plasty and submental lipectomy. Our recent experiences with four patients who declined cervicofacial rhytidectomy demonstrate that submental lipectomy and platysmarrhaphy appear to obtain sufficient improvement.

Methods: The submental area, submandibular area, and lateral neck are injected with local anesthetic. Read More
