    Nerve transfers of the forearm and hand: a review of current indications

    Paolo Sassu , Katleen Libberecht , Anders Nilsson
    Nerve transfer surgery, also referred to neurotization, developed in the mid 1800s with the use of animal models, and was later applied in the treatment of brachial plexus injuries. Neurotization is based on the concept that following a proximal nerve lesion with a poor prognosis, expendable motor or sensory nerves can be re-directed in proximity of a specific target, whether a muscle or skin territory, in order to obtain faster re-innervation. Thanks to the contribution of several authors including Oberlin, MacKinnon and many others, the field of nerve transfer surgery has expanded in...

    Current concepts in the physiology of adult wound healing

    Friji Meethale Thiruvoth , Devi Prasad Mohapatra , Dinesh Kumar Sivakumar , Ravi Kumar Chittoria , Vijayaraghavan Nandhagopal
    Wound healing requires a complex interaction and coordination of different cells and molecules. Any alteration in these highly coordinated events can lead to either delayed or excessive healing. This review provides an overview of adult wound healing physiology. A review of the literature focused on wound healing physiology and current advances in wound healing was conducted using the online MEDLINE/PubMed database. The aim of this review was to inspire further investigation into wound healing physiology that will ultimately translate into improved patient care.

    Medially based de-epithelialized flap for nasal base narrowing and nostril sill augmentation in a cleft lip nasal deformity

    Kun Hwang , Jong Hwan Choi , Hun Kim , Dae Joong Kim
    Aim: The authors observed the nostril floor in a gross cadaver specimen histologically and innovated a medially based de-epithelialized flap for nasal base narrowing and nostril sill augmentation. Methods: In cadaver, fully thick section was taken from the nostril sill at the midpoint of the columella base and ala base, and stained with Masson-Trichrome. In eight patients, circumferential incision along the nostril sill and alar base freed the alar base from the upper lip. At the columellar base, fresh epithelium was shaved on the medial side of the incision line. The widened scar on the...

    Elective neck dissection in early oral squamous cell carcinoma: necessary?

    Carlos Moreno-García
    Aim: The indication of neck dissection in oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) is a problem of risk-benefit evaluation between probability of neck metastases, the problem of complications associated with neck dissection and the prognostic influence of delayed diagnosis of metastasis during follow-up. There is no consensus on the elective treatment of the neck in early oral cancer patients with a clinically N0 (cN0) neck. Methods: The author performed a search of PubMed articles with the words "elective neck dissection vs. observation", "node negative neck" and "early stage oral squamous cell...

    How we do it: the Running-X suture technique

    Nathaniel L. Villanueva , Kyle Sanniec , Ronald Mancini
    There are a myriad of suture techniques available to close incisions of the brow and forehead, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. The ideal suture technique would provide excellent cosmetic results, offer expedient wound closure, optimize skin eversion and wound edge apposition, and provide excellent cosmetic results. The authors describe a new suture technique, the Running-X suture, a running horizontal mattress suture that has successfully been used by the senior author for many years to re-approximate surgical wounds of the brow and forehead in an expeditious and aesthetic...

    Painful scar neuropathy: principles of diagnosis and treatment

    Pierluigi Tos , Alessandro Crosio , Pierfrancesco Pugliese , Roberto Adani , Francesca Toia , Stefano Artiaco
    Nerve-tissue interactions are critical. Peripheral nerve injuries may involve intraneural and extraneural scar formation and affect nerve gliding planes, sometimes leading to complex clinical presentations. All of these pathological entities involve pain as the main clinical symptom and can be subsumed under the term “painful scar neuropathy”. The authors review the literature on treatment approaches to peripheral nerve scar neuropathy and the outcomes of neurolysis‑associated procedures and propose a simple classification and a therapeutic approach to scar neuropathy. The search retrieved...

    Assessment of the histological state of the healing wound

    Akriti Gupta , Pramod Kumar
    The dynamic process of wound healing has various phases, and the knowledge of which is essential for identification of the pathology involved in a chronic intractable wound. Various instruments for the assessment of wound healing have been described, primarily for clinical assessment of the wound. However, very few instruments are currently available for histological grading of the wound. The aim of this article is to review all available literature from 1993 to 2014 on the objective histological scoring of the state of wound healing. This review article emphasizes the importance of...

    Clinical neurophysiology and imaging of nerve injuries: preoperative diagnostic work-up and postoperative monitoring

    Andrea Gagliardo , Francesca Toia , Francesco Maggì , Alessio Vincenzo Mariolo , Michele Cillino , Francesco Moschella
    Peripheral nerve injuries are a heterogeneous group of lesions that may occurs secondary to various causes. Several different classifications have been used to describe the pathophysiological mechanisms leading to the clinical deficit, from simple and reversible compression-induced demyelination, to complete transection of nerve axons. Neurophysiological data localize, quantify, and qualify (demyelination vs. axonal loss) the clinical and subclinical deficits. High-resolution ultrasound can demonstrate the morphological extent of nerve damage, fascicular echotexture (epineurium vs....

    Face transplant (FT) has evolved enormously in the last 10 years since the successful completion of the first facial transplant. This procedure has become a new reconstructive option for complex facial deformities to restore the anatomy of patients with severely disfigured faces. The authors review the literature and discuss the main surgical, immunological, and ethical aspects as well as the results described in patients undergoing FT. To date there have been more than thirty FT worldwide. The main indication was post-traumatic deformity. In all cases a standard immunosuppression was...

    Recalcitrant cubital tunnel syndrome

    Adolfo Vigasio , Ignazio Marcoccio , Eleonora Morandini
    Ulnar nerve neuropathy at the elbow represents the second most frequent compression neuropathy of the upper extremity. Of the five different anatomical areas responsible for ulnar nerve compression at the elbow region, the epitrochlear-olecranon channel and Osborne’s arcade are the most common. An additional cause of nerve damage is a dynamic process in which the ulnar nerve dislocates anteriorly at the epitrochlear-olecranon level during elbow flexion, partially or completely, causing nerve friction and constriction leading to chronic neuropathic pain. Failure after primary surgery is...

    Collagen membrane for reconstruction of soft tissue defects after surgery of oral cancer and precancer: a brief review

    Ankita Vastani , Nishant Chourasia , Vedant Pahlajani , Suryakant Choubey
    There are some surgeries after which a temporary cover for raw wounds is required to ensure healing. Some of those circumstances are loss of tissue due to burns, trauma, amputation, chronic ulcer, leprosy, and skin graft sites. Although the body initiates regeneration mechanisms, however the time taken for complete healing of wounds is unpredictable. Also, there is a tendency for long standing wounds to undergo infection and scarring. Oral mucosa is no exception to scarring and infection of wounds and there has always been a search for new materials that can be used for coverage of oral...

    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...

    The management of neuropathic pain from neuromas in the upper limb: surgical techniques and future directions

    Tereze Laing , Aftab Siddiqui , Manu Sood
    Neuropathic pain of the upper limb results from damage or disease of the upper limb somatosensory system caused by wide range of pathologies including peripheral neuromas. Treatment strategies depend on making an accurate diagnosis, recognizing co-existing pathologies, and formulating an individualized treatment plan that commonly involves multiple modalities. A long list of nonsurgical and surgical methods acting peripherally (neuromodulation, nerve blocks, surgical manipulation of the nerve) and centrally (medications, spinal cord, and deep brain stimulation) has been described and it is...

    Morphometry of subcutaneous fat lobules of the abdomen and its implication in obesity

    Arvind K. Pandey , Pramod Kumar , Kodavoor Shrinivas Aithal , Rama Kotian Sushma , Antony Sylvan D’Souza
    Aim: The subcutaneous fat in the lower abdomen (LA) is more resistant to resorption as compared to the upper abdomen (UA). Males and females have variability in fat deposition and resorption in the abdominal region. Hence, there could be a difference in morphology of fat cells of these regions. The present study aims to identify the differences in morphology of subcutaneous fat lobules of upper and LA. Methods: Subcutaneous fat samples were collected from upper and LA of 40 cadavers (33 males and 7 females). The shape, the arrangement, and the color of superficial and deep subcutaneous fat...
