  • Assessment and planning for oncoplastic and reconstructive breast surgery:
           a review and a proposed chart
    • Authors: Amit Agrawal
      Pages: 321 - 330
      Abstract: Assessment for oncoplastic and reconstructive breast surgery (ORBS) can be time-consuming and subjective with a prolonged learning curve. Further, lack of recognition of options may lead to loss of patient choices whether available locally or not. This article reviews and incorporates essential variables into an author-designed chart with components of clinic consultation (“History” and “Examination”) that classify individual cases into one of the three complexities: high, average and low. Based on these complexities, decision-making processes are discussed in order to achieve, safely and realistically, both subjective and objective (anticipated versus achieved) goals of ORBS. This article by summarising literature around common ORBS variables attempts to streamline decision-making process as well as charts out variables to facilitate audit of decision-making and case selection process. Level of Evidence: Not ratable

  • Blood supply to the second metatarsophalangeal joint—anatomical
           injection study and clinical correlation for free vascularised joint
    • Authors: James Nott; Stephen J. Goldie; Wee Lam
      Pages: 331 - 334
      Abstract: Background Reconstruction of the injured/arthritic metacarpophalangeal joint remains challenging. Free vascularised joint transfer (VJT) using the second metatarsophalangeal joint (MTPJ) remains the gold standard, with an oblique osteotomy is usually performed to correct the natural hyperextended MTPJ during transfer. Surprisingly, few descriptions of the MTPJ arterial supply exist, despite reports of avascular necrosis of the MTP head following VJT. This study provides an up-to-date investigation of the second MTPJ blood supply. Methods The anterior and posterior tibial arteries in three cadaveric feet were injected with an Indian ink-latex mass. The second toe was dissected in its entirety. A modified Spalteholz technique was then used to demonstrate the extraosseus and intraosseus blood supply of the metatarsal head. Results Irrespective of arterial dominance within the first web space, the MT head was observed to receive a constant branch from the first dorsal metatarsal artery (FDMA) at a mean distance of 2.1 cm from the MTPJ. Variable articular branches were also observed to branch from the first/second plantar metatarsal arteries. Conclusions This is the first formal injection study to identify the presence of a constant articular branch from the FDMA. During VJT dissection, better knowledge of the blood supply allows planning of osteotomy without compromising blood supply to the MT head. Level of Evidence: Not ratable.

      Abstract: Background The pathogenesis of microtia is still unclear. Various risk factors have been studied but they remain inconclusive. We conducted the first ever systematic review and meta-analysis to look for the association between microtia and various environmental risk factors. Methods Relevant case-control studies published between January 2000 to October 2014 were identified through a systematic search in PubMed and EMBASE. Reference lists from relevant review articles were also searched. Studies were included if they meet our selection criteria. Out of 1706 potential articles, 12 were included in the systematic review and 8 in the meta-analysis. Results Risk factors which showed significant positive association with microtia were: cold-like syndrome during pregnancy (OR = 2.15; 95 % CI = 1.36, 3.41, P = 0.001); multiple gestation (OR = 1.55; 95 % CI = 1.05, 2.29, P = 0.03); and gestational diabetes (OR = 1.48; 95 % CI = 1.04, 2.10, P = 0.03). Risk factors which showed positive association but statistically insignificant were: threatened abortion (OR = 1.22; 95 % CI = 0.69, 2.15, P = 0.50); smoking during pregnancy (OR = 1.05; 95 % CI = 0.63, 1.77, P = 0.84); alcohol during pregnancy (OR = 1.08; 95 % CI = 0.65,1.80 P = 0.77); urinary tract infection (OR = 1.04; 95 % CI = 0.59, 1.84, P = 0.89); essential hypertension (OR = 1.04; 95 % CI = 0.74, 1.47, P = 0.82); maternal diabetes (OR = 3.98; 95 % CI = 0.72, 21.96, P = 0.11); respiratory tract infection (OR = 1.26,95 % CI = 0.84,1.88, P = 0.26); chronic disease during pregnancy (OR = 1.29,95 % CI = 0.99,1.69, P = 0.06); severe nausea/vomiting (OR = 1.16; 95 % CI = 0.66, 2.04, P = 0.61); NSAIDs during pregnancy (OR = 1.17, 95 % CI = 0.61,2.22, P = 0.64); antihypertensives during pregnancy (OR = 1.84,95 % CI = 0.94,3.62, P = 0.08); and illegal drugs during pregnancy (OR = 1.69; 95 % CI = 0.65, 4.39, P = 0.28). Reduced risk for microtia was found with these factors: folic acid (OR = 0.55; 95 % CI = 0.33, 0.92, P = 0.02); advanced maternal age (OR = 0.94; 95 % CI = 0.79, 1.11, P = 0.45); ampicillin during pregnancy (OR = 0.80,95 % CI = 0.50, 1.28, P = 0.35); and metronidazole during pregnancy (OR = 0.77,95 % CI = 0.40, 1.48 P = 0.44). Conclusions Our study indicates cold-like syndrome, multiple gestation, and gestational diabetes as significant risk factors for microtia; whereas folic acid consumption during pregnancy is shown to be a protective factor. Studies on risk factors for microtia are still very limited to establish the definitive risk factors. Further large-scale and multicentre studies are needed to clarify the role of key risk factors for the development of microtia. Level of Evidence: Level II, risk / prognostic study.

  • Surgical stabilization for symptomatic carpometacarpal hypermobility; a
           randomized comparison of a dorsal and a volar technique and a cohort of
           the volar technique

      Abstract: Background Hypermobility of the first carpometacarpal joint is mostly surgically treated with a volar approached stabilization by Eaton, but recent studies indicate the importance of the dorsoradial and intermetacarpal ligaments (DRL and IML) for carpometacarpal joint stability. The aim of this study was to compare a dorsal and volar technique for primary carpometacarpal hypermobility regarding pain and functional outcome. Methods Patients with non-degenerative, painful carpometacarpal hypermobility were included and were randomly assigned to either the volar technique using the FCR, or a dorsal technique using the ECRL. After premature termination of the trial, we followed all patients treated with the volar approach. Pain, strength, and ADL function using DASH and Michigan Hand Questionnaires (MHQ) were measured at baseline and 3 and 12 months after surgery. Results After including 16 patients, the randomized trial comparing the volar and dorsal technique was terminated because of significant increased pain in the dorsal group. Although none of the other outcome measures were significant in the underpowered comparison, in line with the pain scores, all variables showed a trend towards a worse outcome in the dorsal group. Between 2009 and 2012, 57 thumbs were surgically stabilized. We found significant better pain and MHQ scores, and after 1 year improved grip and key pinch strength. Patients returned to work within 8 (±7) weeks, of which 85 % in their original job. Conclusions Surgical stabilization of the thumb is an effective method for patients suffering from hypermobility regarding pain, daily function, and strength. We recommend a volar approach.

  • Negative-pressure wound therapy for diabetic ischemic foot wounds in
           hemodialysis patients
    • Authors: Kyoichi Matsuzaki; Kazuo Kishi
      Pages: 353 - 358
      Abstract: Background The evidence-based recommendations in 2011 state that a negative-pressure wound therapy (NPWT) may be considered as an advanced wound care therapy for lower limb ulceration after successful revascularization. Since the grade of recommendation was determined by six articles which did not study patients with similar wound severity to critical limb ischemia (CLI), we investigated the patients with similar one. Methods Of the 169 cases who were surgically treated for lower extremity wounds due to CLI between January 1, 2007, and December 31, 2013, nine cases satisfied the following criteria in our institute. There were patients on hemodialysis due to diabetic nephropathy among patients with CLI, and percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) was performed. These patients had foot gangrene, underwent debridement, and then underwent second-stage midfoot wound closure. Their wounds were completely healed. After performing debridement until the second-stage wound closure surgery, the localized wound therapy without NPWT in three patients (group 1) before health insurance covered NPWT in 2010 and using NPWT in six patients (group 2) thereafter. Results The mean period until wound closure surgery after debridement was 55.7 ± 11.2 days in group 1 and 31.3 ± 6.6 in group 2. Significant difference in the number of days was observed between the two groups (p = 0.002). Conclusions Period of time from debridement to the time of wound closure surgery was significantly shortened with NPWT after revascularization by means of PTA in CLI patients. Level of Evidence: Level IV, therapeutic study.

  • Interest in cosmetic surgery among Iranian women: the role of self-esteem,
           narcissism, and self-perceived attractiveness
    • Authors: Abdoljalil Kalantar-Hormozi; Ramin Jamali; Mohammad Atari
      Pages: 359 - 364
      Abstract: Background Examining psychological aspects of cosmetic surgery has gained considerable attention in the research literature, particularly among women. The present study aimed to examine the role of three self-worth variables including self-esteem, narcissism, and self-perceived attractiveness on interest in cosmetic surgery among Iranian women. Methods Three hundred women were selected and completed a set of measures including Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale, Single-Item Narcissism Scale, and self-perceived attractiveness. Pearson correlation coefficients and hierarchical multiple regression analyses were used in statistical analyses. Results The results showed that participants were moderately interested in cosmetic surgery. Moreover, self-esteem and self-perceived attractiveness could significantly predict interest in cosmetic surgery. On the other hand, narcissism was not significantly correlated with interest in undergoing cosmetic surgery. Conclusions Findings support the notion that self-worth variables have a significant relationship with interest in cosmetic surgery. The present results are discussed in relation to previous evidence investigating the variables which are associated with interest in cosmetic surgery. Level of Evidence: Level III, risk study

    • Authors: Riaz A. Agha; Mariana Devesa; Katharine Whitehurst; Alexander J. Fowler; Robert Coe; Georgina Wellstead; Dennis P. Orgill; Peter McCulloch
      Pages: 365 - 370
      Abstract: Background Categorising research by level of evidence (LOE) is an important evidence-based medicine initiative. Our objective was to assess the change in LOEs in plastic surgery from 2003 to 2013 and compared this with five other surgical specialties. Methods A search for all research articles published in the top three general plastic surgery journals (ranked by impact factor) was conducted for 2003 and 2013. Articles were then labelled as LOE 1–5 and compared to other specialties. Results Mean LOE for plastic surgery improved by 4.1 % from 3.86 (95 % confidence interval 3.81–3.91) to 3.70 (95 % confidence interval 3.64–3.74) from 2003 to 2013 respectively. All six surgical specialties improved their mean LOE (range 3.7 to 10.9 %). By mean LOE, plastic surgery continues to rank five out of six. Conclusions Plastic surgery is tending towards higher levels of evidence at a slow pace. The specialty must continue to drive towards higher levels of evidence. Level of Evidence: Not ratable.

  • Novel microvascular anastomosis between a single vessel and two downstream
    • Authors: Tetsushi Aizawa; Mitsuru Sekido
      Pages: 371 - 374
      Abstract: Microsurgeons rarely encounter a situation that includes multiple downstream arteries requiring reperfusion with only one feeding artery being available. To cope with the difficulty of such a case, a unique microvascular anastomosis is described. This surgical technique is based on the assumption of the presence of a single large outflowing vessel and two small downstream vessels. The axial incisions were made on the cut end of the two small vessels. The ends of the two small vessels were sutured side-to-side and remodeled as one vessel. The partially coalesced small vessels were then anastomosed with the outflowing large vessel in an end-to-end fashion. Case presentation: a crush injury of the foot required reconstruction of the blood flow. The first dorsal metatarsal artery (FDMA) was damaged and occluded by thrombosis. The first and second toes had no blood supply. The original plan was simply to remove the damaged area of the FDMA and replace it with a straight vein graft, as the bifurcation to the two digital arteries appeared to be intact. At the time of microvascular anastomosis, however, the FDMA was found to still be damaged, and it required additional debridement. As a suboptimal method, the vein graft and the two digital arteries were anastomosed by the above-described atypical method. The digits all survived, and the patient subsequently returned to work, with no complications as of 10 months postoperatively. This atypical microvascular anastomosis is not an established method, but it has potential utility in similar situations. Level of Evidence: Level V, therapeutic study.

  • The horseshoe flap. An “emergency” oncoplastic breast surgery
    • Authors: Guido Torresini; Maurizio Brucchi; Emanuele Garreffa; Antonella Sozio
      Pages: 375 - 382
      Abstract: Since 2003, oncoplastic breast surgery was introduced combining breast cancer resection and reconstruction. The goal of OBS is to achieve an oncologically safe surgery with the best possible cosmetic result. This type of procedure must be carefully planned preoperatively by taking into account several factors. However, sometimes this does not happen, and as a response to this factors’ neglect, we developed a technique to correct the defect from an upper quadrant breast cancer lumpectomy, which resulted to be wider than expected. This technique is called the horseshoe flap. Data were collected retrospectively from the Teramo Breast Unit database from June 2013 to December 2014. Both preoperative and postoperative data were recorded. The horseshoe flap was used in resections of 20 % or more of the breast volume and consisted in the dissection of the remaining breast tissue from the overlying skin flap, and the mobilization of the remaining part of the upper pole from the pectoralis muscle. The two upper extremities were folded to cover the substance loss in the lumpectomy. A total of five patients underwent a horseshoe flap to correct their defect resulting for an upper quadrant cancer excision. Average resection volume was 131 cc, and no poor or bad cosmetic results were observed. During the follow-up, no cancer recurrences were observed. Sometimes breast surgeons need to perform resections larger than expected, and we are challenged with the correction of the defect without the possibility of a preoperative planning. In this pilot work, we present a valid solution for this situation in case cancers are located in the upper quadrants of the breast. Level of Evidence: Level IV, therapeutic study.

  • Lipofilling may induce nerve regeneration after previous traumatic injury:
           a clinical case with remarkable outcome
    • Authors: Geraldine L. Nanninga; Tim H. Nijhuis; Rutger M. Schols; Sjoerd B. Paulusma; J. Henk Coert; Jean Bart Jaquet
      Pages: 383 - 386
      Abstract: Despite the fast amount of techniques, which promote nerve regeneration, the outcomes of high ulnar nerve injuries are still poor. This case report illuminates the usability of lipofilling in peripheral nerve regeneration. In the case described, we encountered a successful regeneration with return of sensibility and motor function. We believe that the rationale for this technique is the presence of adipose-derived stem cells (ADSCs). We speculate that this improvement depends on tissue regeneration induced by these ADSCs. Level of Evidence: Level V, therapeutic study.

  • Post-traumatic onset of secondary progression of gynecomastia
    • Authors: Yordan P. Yordanov; Aylin Shef; Radka Hristoskova; Albena Fakirova
      Pages: 387 - 390
      Abstract: Gynecomastia is a benign enlargement of the male breast which can be a source of significant anxiety and embarrassment for the patients. A great variety of etiologic factors have been investigated and discussed. However, only few studies in the literature have accentuated on the possible role of the chronic tissue trauma for the de novo development of gynecomastia. Nevertheless, the exact mechanism of its onset in such cases remains unclear. The authors report on a case of posttraumatic unilateral progression of preexisting stable gynecomastia. The possible role of a single episode of acute trauma as a trigger mechanism for the new onset of the breast enlargement is discussed. Level of Evidence: Level V, risk/prognostic study.

  • The fully rotated tensor fasciae latae perforator propeller flap in
           reconstruction of trochanteric pressure sores
    • Authors: Paul Liebmann; Maria Deutinger; Ali A. Saalabian
      Pages: 391 - 394
      Abstract: Reconstruction of trochanteric pressure sores continues to challenge reconstructive surgeons because recurrence is not uncommon and patients typically have undergone previous surgery. We herein report on the use of a large adipocutaneous TFLPP rotated for 180° facilitating reconstruction of a recurring trochanteric decubital ulcer in a 37-year-old male morbidly obese patient with diabetes mellitus. The postoperative period showed no adverse events, and no recurrence was observed to date. The TFLPP is a valuable option because skin grafts are usually not needed for donor-site closure, the muscle is spared, and minimal donor-site morbidity as well as a less bulky appearance is observed. Level of evidence: Level V, therapeutic study.

  • “The magic finger technique” a simplified approach for more symmetric
           results in alar base resection
    • Authors: A. Emre Ilhan; Basak Caypinar Eser; Betul Cengiz
      Abstract: Alar base surgery is one of the most important and challenging steps of aesthetic rhinoplasty. While an ideally shaped alar base is the goal in a desired nose, nearly all patients have asymmetric nostrils preoperatively. Ethnicity, trauma, cocaine use, or previous rhinoplasties are some factors affecting the width and shape of the nasal base. After the conclusion of all planned rhinoplasty sequences and closure of the mid-columellarincision, we mark the midline inferior to the columella at the nasolabial junction and use acaliper to measure an equal distance from the mid-columellar point to the alar creases on eachside, and mark the medial points of the alar creases. Next we draw on the natural creasesbilaterally extending to 3 o’clock on the right side and 9 o‘clock on the left side as the limit ofthe lateral excisions to avoid scarring. We then gently depress the alae and alar-facial grooveswith the index finger and allow the formation of new creases superior to the original alarcreases in order to detect excess skin to remove. After marking, the resection was performed with a no. 15 blade. The excision was closed using 6-0 Prolene sutures. We aimed to describe a simple technique for making asymmetric resections in which theapplication of pressure by a finger reveals excess skin in both nostril sill and nostril flareindependently for each alar base. With these asymmetric excisions from the right and left alar bases, a more symmetric nostrils and nasal base can be achieved. Level of Evidence: Level IV, therapeutic study.

  • The hybrid approach in modern gluteoplasty and a proposed decision-making
    • Authors: Charalambos K. Rammos; Joseph P. Hunstad; Bill G. Kortesis
      Abstract: The gluteal region is an important aesthetic symbol of the body and represents a major component of sexual attraction. Buttocks descent and atrophy are common presenting complaints for patients seeking elective improvement of their body. Gluteal surgery has a recent history of technique evolution, with various reported methods and refinements, including autologous tissue and alloplastic materials. It has been gaining popularity, and an exponential growth in buttocks procedures has been recorded in the recent years. Modern comprehensive gluteal rejuvenation must address both gluteal atrophy and ptosis. Gluteal implants can give a rounded and enhanced appearance to the buttocks while lifting in the form of excisional techniques can address the ptosis. These techniques may be applied together in one surgical procedure or performed in a staged sequence. This report describes the combination of lifting and enhancement techniques to achieve improvement in the gluteal region. An algorithm, to assist with decision making, based on the gluteal deformity encountered, is also proposed. Two separate clinical examples are described, a patient with gluteal implants with synchronous buttocks lift and a patient with pursestring gluteoplasty followed by gluteal implants at a later time. Level of Evidence: Level V, therapeutic study.

  • Lunate implant arthroplasty: analysis of physical function and patient
    • Authors: Noortje J. Visser; Robert S. de Wijn; Thybout M. Moojen; Reinier Feitz
      Abstract: Background Avascular necrosis of the lunate has been the topic of debate for the last century. A relatively new treatment for a symptomatic patient with a Lichtman stage IIIB or stage IV is lunate pyrocarbon implant arthroplasty. The purpose of this study is to document the clinical outcomes and evaluate the results of this new modality. Methods A retrospective cohort study of patients with a symptomatic Kienböck’s disease stage IIIB treated by lunate pyrocarbon implant arthroplasty stabilized with a tendon graft. Presurgical and postsurgical assessment was performed including a questionnaire, X-ray, goniometric measurements, and grip strength. Results Between 2010 and 2013, 16 patients with a mean follow-up of 24 months were treated. Average VAS score improved from 5 to 2.6 and average PRHWE score from 58 to 24. The average flexion extension arc and wrist deviation arc were decreased 26 and 14 degrees. The average grip strength increased from 23 to 29. Most patients were very satisfied about the operation; 14 out of 16 would undergo the same procedure again, given the same circumstances. Conclusions Both the subjective and objective results are comparable to previous reported data of conventional treatments, and it may therefore be a suitable alternative to proximal row carpectomy (PRC). The implant lifespan is not known, but it could postpone the need for salvage procedures in young patients. Further research is needed to provide long-term outcomes and help guide future treatment of patients with Kienböck’s disease. Level of evidence: Level IV, therapeutic study.

  • Danish translation and linguistic validation of the BODY-Q: a description
           of the process
    • Authors: Lotte Poulsen; Michael Rose; Anne Klassen; Kirsten K. Roessler; Jens Ahm Sørensen
      Abstract: Background Patient-reported outcome (PRO) instruments are increasingly being included in research and clinical practice to assess the patient point of view. Bariatric and body contouring surgery has the potential to improve or restore a patient’s body image and health-related quality of life (HR-QOL). A new PRO instrument, called the BODY-Q, has recently been developed specifically for this patient group. The aim of the current study was to translate and perform a linguistic validation of the BODY-Q for use in Danish bariatric and body contouring patients. Methods The translation was performed in accordance with the International Society For Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research (ISPOR) and the World Health Organization (WHO) recommendations. Main steps taken included forward and backward translations, an expert panel meeting, and cognitive patient interviews. All translators aimed to conduct a conceptual translation rather than a literal translation and used a simple and clear formulation to create a translation understandable for all patients. Results The linguistic translation process led to a conceptually equivalent Danish version of the BODY-Q. The comparison between the back translation of the first Danish version and the original English version of the BODY-Q identified 18 items or instructions requiring re-translation. The expert panel helped to identify and resolve inadequate expressions and concepts of the translation. The panel identified 31 items or instructions that needed to be changed, while the cognitive interviews led to seven major revisions. Conclusions The impact of weight loss methods such as bariatric surgery and body contouring surgery on patients’ HR-QOL would benefit from input from the patient perspective. A thorough translation and linguistic validation must be considered an essential step when implementing a PRO instrument to another language and/or culture. A combination of the ISPOR and WHO guidelines contributed to a straightforward and thorough translation methodology well suited for a Danish translation of the BODY-Q. The described method of translation and linguistic validation can be recommended for future translations of PRO instruments in the field of plastic surgery. Level of Evidence: Not ratable.

  • Freestyle local perforator flaps for facial reconstruction: clinical
           experience and complications
    • Authors: Mariagrazia Moio; Gisella Nele; Fabrizio Schönauer
      Abstract: Background Reconstruction of facial defects always represents a surgical challenge as functional and cosmetic outcomes must be taken into account more than any region of the body. The concept of freestyle perforator flaps has been developed to obtain a complete range of freedom in their movement to reach the defect. We present our clinical experience with facial perforator flaps, focusing on indications, surgical technique, and complications. Methods Thirty-one facial defects were reconstructed with freestyle local perforator flaps between January 2007 and November 2014. Doppler identification of perforator vessels preceded preoperative planning and the flap harvesting followed the dissection of perforator vessels. Results Twenty-two clinical cases had no complications. Four had venous congestion that resolved spontaneously, three had a distal 1/3 superficial necrosis, one suffered hematoma, and one had a 1/5 distal area of full thickness necrosis. Conclusions Freestyle perforator approach was applied to gain more freedom for facial reconstruction, allowing one-stage procedures and low donor site morbidity. Good anatomical understanding, precise planning, and meticulous technique can affect clinical results of perforator flaps in the face. A critical approach is essential to get better results. Level of Evidence: Level IV, therapeutic study.
