  • Complex reconstruction of the lower extremity following sarcoma resection: a literature review

    Beina Azadgoli , Antoine L. Carre , David P. Perrault , Alex K. Wong
    While amputation was traditionally the only option available for patients with sarcomas of the extremities, chemotherapy, radiation, and advances in microsurgical technique have allowed many patients to undergo limb-salvaging procedures. Given the low incidence and heterogeneity of these tumors, there is currently no standard treatment algorithm for limb reconstruction after large sarcoma resection. Thus, we systematically reviewed the various types of free tissue transfer used for the reconstruction of lower limbs after sarcoma resection. Techniques were described based on anatomic... Read more

  • Current applications of propeller flaps in reconstruction of trunk wounds

    Shawn Moshrefi , Gordon K. Lee
    Aim: Propeller flaps provide excellent reconstructive options for defects of many etiologies. Trunk wounds are a commonly encountered issue for the plastic surgeon and multiple techniques to address them should be prepared for implementation. Propeller flaps are a subject rarely brought up as an option to address these wounds. The authors sought to elucidate this topic in the current plastic surgery literature available. Methods: A PubMed search was conducted based upon the defined inclusion and exclusion criteria and publications reviewed in detail. Search terms included "trunk wound... Read more

  • Proximal femur reconstruction using a vascularized fibular epiphysis within a cadaveric femoral allograft in a child with Ewing sarcoma: a case report

    Periarticular reconstruction of appendicular bones in skeletally immature patients after tumor resection is a surgical challenge that requires a multidisciplinary approach. The authors present a case of Ewing sarcoma of the proximal femur in an 8-year old girl treated with wide resection of the primary tumor and reconstruction using a vascularized fibula epiphyseal autograft within a cadaveric femoral allograft. The native femoral head was preserved to restore articular anatomy. Postoperative course was without complications. This report demonstrates the use of a vascularized fibula... Read more

  • Microsurgical restoration of failed or unsatisfactory breast reconstruction: a systematic review and pooled-analysis of outcomes

    Bassim EL-Sabawi , Anna C. Howell , Ketan M. Patel
    Aim: Autologous tissue transfer to salvage breast reconstruction following a previously failed or unsatisfactory reconstruction has been described by previous studies to be an effective strategy to optimize outcomes. The purpose of this systematic review is to assimilate the relevant literature to evaluate surgical and aesthetic outcomes following autologous breast reconstruction in the setting of a prior unsuccessful reconstruction. Methods: A systematic review of the English literature was performed on Pubmed/MEDLINE to identify all manuscripts reporting surgical outcomes, aesthetic... Read more
