  • Craniometric analysis of the nasal skeleton and midface in Caucasian
    • Authors: Can Ozturk; Cemile Nurdan Ozturk; Safak Uygur; Thomas Barrett Sullivan; Mehmet Bozkurt; Franziska Huettner; Risal Djohan; Francis A. Papay

      Abstract: Background Our goal was to obtain nasal bone and nasal pyramid morphometric measurements in Caucasian skulls and analyze variation in different age groups and gender. Methods Ninety caucasian skulls were grouped according to three age groups: group I (20–40), II (41–64), and III (>65). The basion (B)-nasion (N), B-anterior nasal spine (ANS), B-supradentale (SD), N-ANS, ANS-SD, and length and width of each nasal bone, height, width, and angle of the pyriform aperture were measured. Comparisons were done between age groups, males and females, between left/right sides. Results The distance between B-N, B-ANS, and B-SD was greater when group I was compared with group II and III in both genders with the exception that the B-N distance in male population was slightly (0.2 mm) longer in group I. There was a statistically significant directly proportional relationship between B-N and B-ANS (p < 0.001, rho 0.54), B-N and B-SD (p = 0.001, rho 0.34), and B-ANS and B-SD (p < 0.001, rho 0.90) distances in all skulls independent of age and gender. The mean nasal bone lengths were; nasal bone length at midline (F: 20.07/19.67/21.20 mm, M:23.07/22.33/23.13 mm in groups I/II/III, respectively), at lateral suture lines (F:23.9/24.93/24.33 mm, M: 27.03/26.95/27.93 mm in groups I/II/III, respectively). Conclusion This study not only supports the existing literature that the midface and the nasal skeleton show variation with age and gender but also adds valuable information about the nasal bone and related parameters. Nasal and midfacial surgeries should be done with particular attention to different morphology in different age and gender groups in order to provide the patient with an improved physiologic and normal result. Level of Evidence: not ratable.

      Abstract: Background Acute ischemia and reperfusion in extremities ignite a complicated inflammatory cycle and lead to damage in the extremities and target tissues. Methods Rats were randomly divided into four groups. Each experimental group contained eight rats. Group 1 was the sham surgery group. Group 2 was the control I/R group with intraperitoneal serum physiologic (SP) treatment. Group 3 was the I/R group with vehicle treatment (8% DMSO). Group 4 was the I/R group with 20 mg/kg apocynin (vehicle 8% DMSO). The potential protective effects of apocynin and vehicle (DMSO) in the rat hind limb ischemia-reperfusion model were evaluated by measuring the levels of plasma pro-inflammatory cytokines and oxidative stress markers in muscle tissue. Results The results revealed that both apocynin and vehicle (DMSO) alone increased the antioxidative capacity of ischemic tissue and reduced the levels of plasma proinflammatory cytokines compared to control I/R group. There was a statically more significant effect in the apocynin (vehicle 8% DMSO)-treated group 4. Conclusions We observed that apocynin and DMSO synergistically prevent the I/R injury in rat hind limb ischemia-reperfusion injury model and meaningfully decrease the inflammatory parameters. Level of Evidence: Not ratable.

  • The effect of caudal extension graft on nostril in rhinoplasty
    • Authors: Ali Razfar; Shabnam Hajialipour; Azadeh Kheradmand; Amir Arvin Sazgar
      Pages: 513 - 516
      Abstract: Background Caudal extension graft technique is a versatile technique in rhinoplasty providing good tip support and maintaining tip projection. In this study, we evaluated the clinical outcomes of this technique and performed anthropometric analysis of nostril shape from the basal view. Methods Thirty-two patients undergoing caudal extension graft technique were identified from December 2011 to July 2016. Patients with a minimum of 12 month follow-up were included. Quantitative analysis was performed on standard pre- and postoperative photos. Results Nasal tip protrusion and columellar width were increased significantly (p value < 0.001), while apex angle was decreased significantly (p value <0.001). Caudal extension graft placement resulted in a non-significant decrease in nostril size on the side of graft placement. There was no significant change in columellar length or nostril width. Conclusions Caudal extension graft technique is a versatile and reliable technique for addressing poor tip support and setting tip projection. Disadvantages of caudal extension graft include asymmetric nostrils and over projection in cases where projection reduction is needed. We showed that while there is a significant increase in columellar width, there is no significant increase in nostril asymmetry. Level of Evidence: Level IV, risk/prognostic study.

  • Reconstruction of skin and soft tissue defects of the outer ear in
           patients with severe burn injuries: analysis of three different operative
    • Authors: Fabian Medved; Till Fischborn; Jens Martin Rothenberger; Hans-Eberhard Schaller; Manuel Held; Theodora Manoli
      Pages: 517 - 524
      Abstract: Background An early soft tissue reconstruction is mandatory after burns of the outer ear to avoid cartilage loss. Although different procedures for covering soft tissue defects of the outer ear have been described in the past, the biomechanical properties and cosmetic outcome of reconstructed burned tissue are yet to be investigated more thoroughly. Methods Using photographs and the Cutometer, a device for measuring biomechanical skin properties such as firmness and elasticity, the 12 ears in six healthy volunteers and the 12 mainly deep partial-thickness injured ears in six patients who suffered burn injuries were examined. Three of the burned ears were covered with temporoparietal fascial flaps with split skin grafts based on the superficial temporal artery, four with retroauricular random pattern flaps, and five with full thickness skin graft. Results The median values of the firmness and elasticity of skin were approximately equal in the control group compared to the random pattern flap group. The median values of firmness and elasticity differ between the control group and the temporoparietal fascial flap and skin graft group (p = 0.05). Cosmetic outcome in terms of anatomical structures revealed full thickness grafts as the superior method. Conclusions Considering burn depth, the results of cosmetic outcome support the clinical principle of the reconstructive ladder, suggesting full thickness skin grafts as first choice. If high biomechanical skin quality is necessary, random pattern skin flaps from the lateral head region were the favorable procedure for burn reconstructions in the outer ear. Level of Evidence: Level III, therapeutic study.

  • Delayed prosthetic breast reconstruction without the use of acellular
           dermal matrix
    • Authors: Paul A Mittermiller; Rahim S Nazerali; Simone W Glaus; Marcelina G Perez; Anna Luan; David M Kahn; Gordon K Lee
      Pages: 533 - 540
      Abstract: Background Since the widespread adoption of acellular dermal matrices (ADM) in immediate breast reconstruction, many surgeons have applied the same techniques to delayed reconstruction. To counteract this trend, we present a method of performing delayed prosthetic breast reconstruction without the use of ADM. This approach produces excellent aesthetic outcomes while eliminating the cost of relatively expensive ADM. Methods A retrospective review was performed on patients who underwent delayed implant-based breast reconstruction without ADM at a single institution between 2001 and 2013. Results A total of 31 patients met inclusion criteria. In our cohort, radiation therapy was performed on 14 patients (45%). Expanders were filled intraoperatively to a median volume of 150 cm3, and median permanent implant size was 500 cm3. Operative time averaged 62 minutes for unilateral expander insertion and 92 minutes for bilateral insertion. After expander placement, complications requiring reoperation occurred in five patients (16%), of which four (75%) had prior radiation therapy. Permanent implants were placed in 29 patients (94%), and six of these patients (21%) underwent additional procedures. Thirteen patients without prior radiation (76%) and eight patients with prior radiation (57%) did not undergo any unplanned surgical interventions during the reconstructive process. Conclusions Our study shows delayed breast reconstruction can be successfully performed without ADM. Since delayed reconstruction is generally performed less frequently than immediate reconstruction, plastic surgeons are advised to critically review their techniques, as the operation should be approached differently. While ADM may have specific benefits in immediate reconstruction, those benefits do not directly translate in delayed reconstruction. Level of Evidence: Level IV, risk/ prognostic study.

  • Comparison of laser-assisted liposuction and traditional liposuction
           combined with endoscopic surgical excision of grade II gynecomastia
    • Authors: Yasser Abdallah Aboelatta; Mohammed Mahmoud Abdelaal
      Pages: 541 - 548
      Abstract: Background Surgical excision and liposuction of fatty element are the standard in the treatment of grade II gynecomastia. The aim of this study is to evaluate the combined use of laser-assisted liposuction and endoscopic surgical excision. Methods Thirty male patients with grades IIa and IIb were included. Fifteen patients underwent laser-assisted liposuction followed by endoscopic excision of glandular tissues (group I), and 15 patients underwent conventional (vacuum assisted) liposuction and endoscopic surgical excision (group II). Results Patients of group I showed good to excellent outcome with mild edema, indurations, and ecchymosis. Group II patients showed also overall satisfactory results but with moderate to severe edema, ecchymosis, and hematomas. Conclusions Endoscopic surgical excision of grade II gynecomastia combined with traditional or laser-assisted liposuction can achieve satisfactory aesthetic results. Furthermore, the combined use of laser liposuction failed to show superior aesthetic results than traditional liposuction. However, the use of laser-assisted liposuction offers additional advantages such as intraoperative (less bleeding, less operative time) or postoperative either immediately (less pain, indurations, ecchymosis, and edema) or late as improved skin tightness.

  • Predictive value of biochemical and tissue modifications for wound healing
           in post-bariatric patients
    • Authors: Marco D’Ettorre; Damiano Tambasco; Geltrude Mingrone; Roberto Bracaglia
      Pages: 549 - 554
      Abstract: Background Bariatric surgery, despite its beneficial effects, is responsible for highly frequent wound healing complications, as it has already been demonstrated in post-biliopancreatic diversion (BPD) patients. The aim of this study was to analyze results and wound healing process in a population submitted to Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB), a procedure involving both a malabsorptive and restrictive approach. Methods Thirteen non-smokers and non-diabetic patients submitted to laparoscopic RYGB underwent abdominoplasty. Biochemical parameters before and after bariatric surgery were evaluated. The content of total protein and hydroxyproline (revealing collagen amount) was assessed in multiple biopsies before and after RYGB. Skin samples were subjected to macroscopic and histological evaluation, where elastic fibers content was put into evidence by a specific stain (Wigert–Van Gieson). Results Most of the biochemical parameters analyzed showed a mild reduction after weight loss surgery. Neither tissue proteins nor hydroxyproline were significantly reduced after RYGB. Macroscopically, equal thickness of the two adipose tissue layers (areolar and lamellar) was observed in addition to normal consistency and compactness. Histological evaluation revealed fibroblast augmentation, hypertrophic adipocytes, and augmented dimension. Results were then compared with those previously obtained in post-BPD population. Conclusion Despite that further elaborations are needed, RYGB, compared to BPD, seems to be associated with minor modifications of tissues and biochemical and tissue parameter values, possibly leading to a lower wound complication rate.

  • Successful treatment of postburn flexion contracture in fingers of early
           childhood with dynamic splint therapy after operation: long-term follow-up
    • Authors: Masao Fujiwara; Takahiro Suzuki; Hidekazu Fukamizu; Yoshiki Tokura
      Pages: 555 - 562
      Abstract: Background Infants or early childhood individuals are prone to be burned on the palm and fingers, since they tend to extend their hands to the heat source. Wounds with more than 3-week-prolonged ulcers frequently result in flexion contracture. Despite successful surgery, the outcome might be unsatisfactory because of postoperative contracture. This study aims to investigate the effectiveness of our dynamic splint therapy following operation of postburn flexion contracture of fingers in infants or early childhood. Methods Ten patients with postburn flexion contractures were enrolled in this study. After epithelialization of wounds had been completed, surgery was planned. Contracture was released by scar incision, and full-thickness skin was grafted. Postoperatively, the finger joints were fixed at the extended position with the Kirschner wires for 3 weeks. After the fixation was released, Capener-type dynamic splints were worn for 2 years. The functional outcome was assessed by measurement of total active motion (TAM). The aesthetic outcome was assessed using Vancouver scar scale (VSS). Results The mean postoperative follow-up period was 49.6 months (range 31–81 months). In all cases, contractures were released, and all skin grafts were completely taken. None developed late contracture. The mean postoperative TAM of the fingers (259.6 ± 2.54) was significantly higher than the preoperative one (148.0 ± 51.5). The mean postoperative VSS (1.40 ± 1.14) was significantly lower than the preoperative one (5.53 ± 0.50). Conclusions Our treatment protocol provided the excellent functional result and improved the aesthetic appearance. Level of Evidence: Level IV, therapeutic study.

  • The extended medial plantar artery (EMPA) free flap for plantar foot
    • Authors: Tomas Kempný; Martin Knoz; Bretislav Lipový
      Pages: 563 - 568
      Abstract: The medial plantar artery (MPA) flap was first introduced by Mir y Mir in 1954 and used to reconstruct a heel defect. The sole of the foot is designed to bear body weight and absorb the shocks of a bipedal gait. The properties of the plantar skin and deeper tissues are therefore highly specialised, and if normal function is to be restored, it is essential to replace “like with like” which is a fundamental principle of reconstructive surgery. The aim of this article is to introduce the concept of an extended medial plantar artery (EMPA) free flap for plantar foot defects. The advantage of the extended version of the MPA flap in the presented cases is the harvest of a larger bulk of tissue and thus the possibility of covering larger defects in the weight-bearing area of the foot. Level of Evidence: Level V, therapeutic study.

  • The buried dermal pennant stitch for the correction of symmastia following
           breast reduction
    • Authors: Ashkaun Shaterian; Noelle Kobayashi; Derek A. Banyard; Mark Kobayashi
      Pages: 569 - 572
      Abstract: Symmastia is a difficult surgical problem to correct. Symmastia has various etiologies and can occur following reduction mammoplasty. Techniques previously described have been criticized for their limited success due to temporary results, inadequate correction, or creation of secondary deformities. In this study, we present a novel approach to correct symmastia in a patient who developed the deformity following reduction mammoplasty. The technique described uses a buried dermal pennant suture, local advancement flaps, and liposuction to correct the symmastia and improve medial breast contour. We believe this technique provides adequate and long-term correction of symmastia in the breast reduction patient and avoids the shortcomings of previously described approaches.

  • Giant adenoid basal cell carcinoma of the scalp with intracranial
           involvement—successful management strategies for a rare entity
    • Authors: Mona Ascha; Amy Hiuser; Melissa Piliang; Graham S. Schwarz
      Pages: 573 - 578
      Abstract: Adenoid basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is a rare but aggressive histologic subtype of BCC. The aim of this report is to present our multidisciplinary management strategy and a literature review on this seldom reported entity. A 72-year-old female with fungating giant BCC of the scalp, ear, and bone underwent preoperative biopsy revealing adenoid histology with infiltrating and nodular components. The patient underwent radical resection of the biparietal and occipital scalp, auriculectomy and craniectomy with dural resection. Immediate reconstruction of the intracranial and bony defect was performed with dural substitute and a titanium cranioplasty. The soft tissue defect was reconstructed with a latissimus dorsi free flap and split thickness skin graft using the right superficial temporal artery and vein as recipient vessels. Adjuvant external beam radiation was initiated postoperatively. Nearly 2 years postoperatively, she presented mesh exposure necessitating secondary reconstruction with debridement, hardware removal, and an anterolateral thigh (ALT) free flap, followed by flap debulking. Four years following initial presentation, she remains disease-free. To our knowledge, this is the only reported case of a giant, locally invasive scalp BCC with the adenoid subtype treated with composite resection and single stage reconstruction. Using an aggressive multimodal management paradigm, treatment and surveillance of the rarely reported, giant, locally invasive scalp BCC with adenoid subtype can result in a durable disease-free response and a functional, esthetic reconstruction.

      Pages: 579 - 582
      Abstract: Repair of a failed primary lower eyelid reconstruction is a difficult prospect and requires special thought after the best available reconstructive option has already been utilized. Reconstruction must be tailored specifically to the defect and the local reconstructive options. Here, we describe the case of an 88-year-old male with a successful salvage reconstruction of his lower eyelid after a cicatricial failure of the primary composite reconstruction for a 90% lower eyelid defect secondary to extensive basal cell carcinoma in the setting of a lack of standard reconstructive options.

  • Accidental injection of autologous fat into the breast implant: a case
           report highlighting radiological findings
    • Authors: Levent Celik; Rahmi Cubuk; Gozde Arslan; Mehmet Mahir Atasoy; Levent Celik
      Pages: 583 - 586
      Abstract: Autologous fat grafting is a popular technique for breast augmentation and improving breast contour depressions. It is a technique that involves using the patient’s own adipose tissue to be applied on a subcutaneous area to increase total fat volume. Intraimplant fat is an unexpected finding after autologous fat grafting. A 51-year-old asymptomatic female who underwent breast augmentation with silicone implants and secondary breast augmentation with autologous fat grafting presented with unidentified cluster of radiolucencies superimposed to left implant on screening mammogram. Corresponding MRI revealed intraimplant fat intensities. This case represents a previously unreported intraimplant injection of fat with resultant intracapsular rupture and highlights the radiological findings of intracapsular implant rupture. Level of Evidence: Level V, diagnostic study.

  • Lipofilling: a promising tool for digital pulp reconstruction
    • Authors: Ilias G. Petrou; Evelyn-Evanthia Betsi; Pierre Schertenleib; Anne Gray
      Pages: 587 - 592
      Abstract: According to the important principle of plastic surgery “replace like-with like”, a successful soft tissue reconstruction requires autologous tissue transfer. Lipofilling is a frequently used technique in esthetic and reconstructive surgery. In the hand region, one well-known indication of its esthetic application is the lipofilling of the dorsum of the hand. There are limited literature references regarding lipofilling for reconstruction and scar correction in the pulp of the digits. Insufficient fat tissue in the digital pulp can lead to discomfort and reduced finger employment, as the pulp is an important functional area in everyday activities. We present two cases related to trauma sequela, managed with fat grafting for digital pulp reconstruction. Level of evidence: Level V, therapeutic study.

  • Development and validation of a new assessment tool for suturing skills in
           medical students
    • Authors: Henriette Pisani Sundhagen; Stian Kreken Almeland; Emma Hansson
      Abstract: Background In recent years, emphasis has been put on that medical student should demonstrate pre-practice/pre-registration core procedural skills to ensure patient safety. Nonetheless, the formal teaching and training of basic suturing skills to medical students have received relatively little attention and there is no standard for what should be tested and how. The aim of this study was to develop and validate, using scientific methods, a tool for assessment of medical students’ suturing skills, measuring both micro- and macrosurgical qualities. Methods A tool was constructed and content, construct, concurrent validity, and inter-rater, inter-item, inter-test reliability were tested. Three groups were included: students with no training in suturing skills, students who have had training, plastic surgery. Results The results show promising reliability and validity when assessing novice medical students’ suturing skills. Conclusions Further studies are needed on implementation of the instrument. Moreover, how the instrument can be used to give formative feedback, evaluate if a required standard is met and for curriculum development needs further investigation. Level of Evidence: Not ratable.

  • Adipose-derived stem cells for treatment of chronic cutaneous ulcers in
           patients with critical limb ischemia: a pilot study
    • Authors: Edoardo Raposio; Nicolò Bertozzi; Eugenio Grignaffini; Francesco Simonacci; Michele Pio Grieco
      Abstract: Background Therapeutic approaches based on stem cells have recently been introduced to treat chronic ulcers, with good results. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether the topical application of adipose-derived stem cells (ASCs) with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) for the treatment of ischemic cutaneous ulcers modified the skin perfusion of the treated areas. Methods Perilesional laser Doppler flowmetry (LDF) and transcutaneous oximetry (tcpO2) values were recorded for a 3-month period in seven arteriopathic and diabetic patients with ischemic ulcers of the lower limb candidates to amputation, who had been previously treated with single co-administered perilesional and intralesional injections of ASCs+PRP. Results Significant differences were found between pretreatment (T0) and 3 month post-treatment (T3) values regarding both LDF values (basal mean values: T0 30.7; T3 50.4; declivous mean values: T0 23; T3 38.9;) and tcpO2 levels (basal mean values: T0 6.7; T3 45.9; declivous mean values: T0 17.6; T3 47.3). Conclusions According to the values of LDF and TcpO2, the multidisciplinary treatment of severe ulcers with ACSs+PRP associated or not with revascularization therapy allowed a perilesional improvement of oxygenation and perfusion such to avoid limb amputation, with complete wound healing. Early treatment with ASCs associated or not with reperfusion therapy is an effective treatment even in severe ulcers in advanced stage once treated with amputation of limb.

  • Repositioning the inframammary fold after DIEP flap reconstruction: using
           biologic mesh to provide a more stable result
    • Authors: Katherine Carruthers; Pankaj Tiwari; Ergun Kocak
      Abstract: Traditional techniques for elevating the inframammary fold (IMF) position have relied mainly on isolated sutures to maintain the repositioned fold. Furthermore, most published reports focus on implant-based reconstructions, rather than the unique challenges of revising autologous reconstruction. Therefore, to improve the durability of the IMF repair in the autologous reconstructed breast, we have developed a method which utilizes biologic mesh to distribute the forces over a greater area of the chest wall. In our initial experience using this technique to elevate the IMF during revisions of autologous tissue breast reconstructions, we have found it to provide a stable and long-lasting result that can improve symmetry when the IMF position is not ideal.
