    Free deep inferior epigastric perforator flap after abdominal liposuction: reconsidering a contraindication

    Peter James Mankowski , Jonathan Kanevsky , Anne-Sophie Lessard , Teanoosh Zadeh
    Autologous breast reconstruction with perforators has been previously avoided in tissues that have undergone liposuction. We present a case series and literature review of breast reconstruction with deep inferior epigastric perforator (DIEP) flaps after abdominal wall liposuction. An MEDLINE search was performed for all relevant articles describing breast reconstruction with DIEP flap technique following the abdominal wall liposuction. Key search words used included “DIEP”, “DIEAP”, “deep inferior epigastric perforator”, “liposuction” and “free flap”. All published data on the topic from...

    Nasal dorsal aesthetic lines and rhinoplasty technical tricks

    Alexander Kutubidze
    Rhinoplasty surgery remains one of the most difficult operations of the face. Improving aesthetic appearance and maintaining nasal function are inseparable goals in rhinoplasty surgery, and failure to achieve either of these objectives can be devastating for the patient. After evaluating a variety of rhinoplasty complications, increased attention was devoted to the surgical technique for reconstruction of the dorsal aesthetic lines and nasal tip projection in the patient with a prominent dorsal hump. Based on the modern concept of cartilage conservation, the autospreader flap rotation...

    Cost-effectiveness of one-stage versus two-stage breast reconstruction in the United Kingdom

    Isabel Teo , Iman A. Azmy
    Aim: Permanent expanders allow for breast reconstruction as a single stage. These prostheses are more expensive than conventional tissue expanders, but this excess cost is markedly offset as only one operation is required. However, if the revision rate is sufficiently high, then this effect is negated. We aim to compare costs of one-stage vs. two-stage reconstruction at a single center, taking into account explantation and unexpected admissions following complications. Methods: A retrospective review was carried out on all patients who underwent one‑stage and two‑stage reconstruction over a...

    First-year experience of a new skin bank in Brazil

    Alysson Rogerio Matioski , Clóvis Rodrigo Guimarães Braz Pereira da Silva , Diogo Rodrigues da Silva-Cunha , Luiz Henrique Auerswald Calomeno , Flávia Thaiana Bonato , Marcelus Vinícios Araujo Nigro
    Aim: To report the 1st year experience of the skin bank opened at the Evangelical University Hospital of Curitiba (HUEC), Brazil in June 2013. Methods: A retrospective statistical and epidemiological study was conducted from data obtained from the activities of the HUEC skin bank from June 2013 to August 2014. Results: The HUEC skin bank harvested tissue from 45 cadaveric donors (46.6% female and 53.3% male), with an average age of 36.42. The white skin‑colored donors represented 91% of donations. Most causes of death were of neurological origin (55.6%). Eighty‑one batches were harvested....

    Synergistic effect of hyperbaric oxygen preconditioning and hydrogen-rich saline in ameliorating rat flap ischemia/reperfusion injury

    Yi-Ding Xiao , Yun-Qi Liu , Ming-Zi Zhang , You-Bin Wang , Yi-Fang Liu , Xue-Mei Ma
    Hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) treatment has been widely used in clinical work, while, hydrogen-rich saline (HRS) has also been shown its protective effect of ameliorating ischemia/reperfusion (IR) injury. What will we obtain if these two approaches combined together? In this study, we set five independent groups (Sham, IR, HBO, HRS and HBO+HRS) of rat abdominal skin flap IR model with different interferences. In conclusion, the synergistic application of HBO and HRS showed a higher flap survival rate, which could be a combined treatment to improve skin flap survival against IR injury.

    Aim: Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are an excellent potential source of cells for bone tissue engineering due to their excellent renewal ability and osteogenic differentiation capabilities. This study was designed to evaluate the bone formation properties of a demineralized cancellous bone scaffold seeded with MSCs, with or without periosteum, in a critical size bone defect model in rabbits. Methods: Rabbit culture‑expanded bone marrow (BM)‑MSCs were seeded onto a human demineralized cancellous bone (HDCB) scaffold. Bone defects measuring 15 mm in length were created in each radius. A total...

    Transfer of upper trapezius with clavicular segment for restoration of shoulder movements following injury to the brachial plexus

    Neeraj Kant Agrawal
    Aim: Most brachial plexus palsies occur following high-velocity trauma. The shoulder joint is a large proximal joint which influences the motion of the hand. Transfer of the trapezius muscle is an effective alternative for palsy of the deltoid and supraspinatus muscles. Methods: Between 2009 and 2014, 32 patients were treated with modified trapezius muscle transfer in which only the descending fibers along with their attachment to the lateral third of clavicle were used. The clavicle was fixed to the anterolateral surface of the humerus by cancellous screws. The arm was immobilized for 6...

    High pressure paint gun injury of the index finger: a case report

    Memet Yazar , Zeliha Gül , Ali Can Günenç , Sevgi Kurt Yazar , Erol Kozanoğlu
    Injuries to the hand secondary to high pressure paint guns are considered to be true hand emergencies. These rare injuries may have serious outcomes, and a critical step in their management is extensive debridement performed within the first six hours following injury. For this reason, their diagnosis should not be delayed, and the hand surgeon should be informed immediately to initiate appropriate treatment. In this report, the authors describe a patient who was injured with a chemical paint gun, and whose injury was not diagnosed in the emergency department. The patient subsequently...

    Lacrimal sac rhinosporidiosis

    Laxmi Kanta Mishra , Sanjeev Gupta , Surya Kanta Pradhan , Manas R. Baisakh
    Rhinosporidiosis is caused by the organism Rhinosporidium seeberi. It is a rare aquatic protistan parasite. Though more prevalent in Asiatic regions, cases have also been reported in European countries. In India, it mostly affects the southern part. Rhinosporidium seeberi most commonly affects the mucous membranes, but can also affect other structures including the larynx, trachea, skin, genitalia, lungs and rectum. The typical presentation is that of a pinkish mass which bleeds profusely. Isolated lacrimal sac rhinosporidiosis is very rare. Computed tomography scans and magnetic resonance...
