    Applying skin graft sheets transversely to manage burn patients

    Ricardo Madiedo, Jorge Luis Gaviria-Castellanos, Alejandro Zapata-Ospina

    Aim: The aim of this study is to determine whether the split-thickness grafts should be applied to the treatment of burn patients, parallel to the relaxed skin tension lines as described by Kraissl, which would help scarring and reduce the development of abnormal scars. Methods: A descriptive... Read more

    Tissue conditioning - strategies to improve perfusion and reduce ischemia - reperfusion injury

    Sabrina Krauss, Jens Rothenberger, Johannes Mayer, Alexander Sogorski, Manuel Held, Theodora Wahler, Adrien Daigeler, Jonas Kolbenschlag

    Ischemia as well as ischemia-reperfusion injury (IRI) can cause serious tissue damage and therefore is a feared complication in reconstructive surgery. This is the reason why researchers around the world invest their efforts to improve tissue viability after ischemic events. Tissue conditioning... Read more

    Negative pressure wound therapy with instillation: effects on healing of category 4 pressure ulcers

    Johannes Matiasek, Gabriel Djedovic, Marcus Kiehlmann, Ralph Verstappen, Ulrich M. Rieger

    Aim: The use of negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) is well established in the treatment of chronic wounds. NPWT with instillation (NPWTi) combines traditional NPWT with the application of a topical irrigation solution (in this case octenidine based octenilin® wound irrigation solution) within...

    Prefabricated flaps and neoangiogenesis initiated via venous grafts in arteriovenous loops

    Elias Polykandriotis, Andreas Arkudas, Annika Weigand, Aijia Cai, Raymund E. Horch

    New developments in regenerative medicine are bound to revolutionize the way we approach loss of function and form in human organisms. Especially in the field of reconstructive plastic surgery new biotechnologies find their way from bench to bed. Biofabrication is an evolving field that aims to... Read more

    Defect reconstruction of the trochanter major after necrotizing fasciitis and multiple operations using an arteriovenous loop and latissimus dorsi free flap

    Andreas Arkudas, Susanne Regus, Alexander Meyer, Werner Lang, Marweh Schmitz, Raymund E. Horch

    Necrotizing fasciitis (NF) is a severe soft tissue infection which has to be treated with a radical debridement as the key element. In the further course often large tissue defects occur, so that a long-term stable defect reconstruction plays a crucial role after any successful debridement. The... Read more

    One-stage reconstruction of neck burns with single-layer dermal matrix

    Jorge Luis Gaviria, Viviana Gómez-Ortega

    Aim: The aim of the study was to describe the applicability of a single-layer acellular dermal matrix, in combination with split-thickness skin graft (STSG) in one-stage surgical procedure in patients with deep neck second - and third - degree burns. Methods: A descriptive longitudinal study was... Read more

    Technical refinements of the modified central mound breast reduction

    Simon Nicholson, Muhammad Adil Abbas Khan, Muhammad Riaz

    Aim: Common pitfalls with existing breast reduction techniques include poor aesthetic outcome, such as development of a “boxy” breast shape, and pseudoptosis. Presented here are a series of modifications to the technique of central mound breast reduction, based on previous work, aimed at ensuring... Read more

    State of the art in enzymatic debridement

    Benjamin Ziegler, Gabriel Hundeshagen, Tomke Cordts, Ulrich Kneser, Christoph Hirche

    Surgical treatment of deep partial thickness to full thickness burn wounds by knife has been the undisputed standard of care and was one key point in surgical burn medicine for decades. Recently, it gets more and more challenged by Bromelain-based enzymatic burn wound debridement (ED) as... Read more
