Free tensor fasciae latae flap for abdominal wall reconstruction: overview and new innovation

Free tensor fasciae latae flap for abdominal wall reconstruction: overview and new innovation

Chalfoun CT, McConnell MP, Wirth GA, Brenner KA, Evans GR, Kobayashi M. 20 May 2015

Journal of reconstructive microsurgery (2012)

Extensive abdominal wall defects may result from tumor extirpation, traumatic injury, or soft tissue infections. Extensive traumatic injuries can often disrupt the soft tissue content of the abdomen as well as the bony support provided by the pelvis. Reconstruction of the lower abdomen should aim to recreate dynamic stability. Five patients with extensive lower abdominal wall disruption following traumatic injuries or infection were treated using a novel flap for functional reconstruction. We devised a free neurotized osteomyocutaneous tensor fasciae latae (TFL) flap that would restore bony continuity by providing a vascularized bone graft and simultaneously maintain the integrity of the attachment of the tensor fascia latae muscle to the iliac crest, reestablishing musculofascial continuity.

Free anterolateral thigh fascia lata flap for complex nasal lining defects

Free anterolateral thigh fascia lata flap for complex nasal lining defects

Seth R, Revenaugh PC, Scharpf J, Shipchandler TZ, Fritz MA. 20 May 2015

JAMA facial plastic surgery (2013)

To introduce a novel technique for the reconstruction of complex nasal lining defects using the free vascularized anterolateral thigh fascia lata flap.Free anterolateral thigh fascia lata flaps were used to replace nasal lining in 5 patients with total or subtotal rhinectomy defects. We performed a retrospective medical record review.

No flap failure or lining loss was observed, and harvest site morbidity was negligible. Patients achieved satisfactory nasal form and patent nasal airways without a need for repeated revisions. In 2 patients, the anterolateral thigh flap was used simultaneously to restore the midface contour or to repair anterior skull base defects

Numerous materials have been used for the correction and prevention of dorsal nasal irregularities. Experimental and clinical studies have been useful but have provided insufficient results for several reasons, including the impossibility of obtaining pathologic specimens from aesthetic patients and imprecise experimental models. In this study, an experimental model for rhinoplasty is used for the comparative evaluation of solvent-dehydrated pericardium, acellular dermal matrix, and autogenous ear cartilage as onlay grafts for the prevention and correction of nasal dorsal irregularities. We used an experimental rabbit rhinoplasty model that has a human nose-like osteocartilaginous junction. Thus, our goal is to get a more realistic idea about the features of these three materials.

The clinical applications of human amnion in plastic surgery

The clinical applications of human amnion in plastic surgery

N.G. Fairbairn, M.A. Randolph, R.W. Redmond 20 May 2015

Journal of Plastic, Reconstructive & Aesthetic Surgery (2014)

Amnion is widely available, economical and is easy to manipulate, process and store. Although many clinical applications are of historical interest only, amnion offers an alternative source of multi-potent or pluripotent stem cells and therefore may yet have a great deal to offer the plastic surgery and regenerative medicine community. It is the purpose of this article to review the clinical applications of human amnion relevant to plastic surgery.

Free fascia lata repair for a second recurrent congenital diaphragmatic hernia

Free fascia lata repair for a second recurrent congenital diaphragmatic hernia

Journal of Pediatric Surgery (2011)

Repair of recurrent congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) continues to be a difficult problem.

Although several materials have been used to repair recurrent CDH, the ideal material has yet to be

established. We report the successful use of an autologous free fascia lata graft to repair the diaphragm following a second recurrence of CHD. The fascia lata is one of the strongest fascia in the body and is easy to obtain without extremity functional loss even in children. This procedure is regarded as effective for the repair of recurrent CDH.

Prelaminated fascia lata free flap for large nasal septal defect reconstruction

Prelaminated fascia lata free flap for large nasal septal defect reconstruction

Bank J, Beederman M, Naclerio RM, Gottlieb LJ 20 May 2015

Journal of plastic, reconstructive & aesthetic surgery (2014)

Nasal septal defects can be challenging to repair, given their location, size, and the unique, tri-layered structure of the septum, which includes a thin piece of cartilage positioned between mucosal layers. The report herein presents a case of a 47 year-old woman with a large symptomatic nasal septal perforation, despite saline irrigations and ointment. Placement of a septal button or a traditional surgical approach was not considered because of the extremely large nature of the perforation. We describe the use of a tri-layered fascia lata flap prelaminated with buccal mucosa grafts to successfully repair this complicated defect.

Veritas bovine pericardium for immediate breast reconstruction: a xenograft alternative to acellular dermal matrix products.

Mofid MM, Meininger MS, Lacey MS. 20 May 2015

European journal of plastic surgery (2012) 

The technical advantages in utilizing human acellular dermal matrix (ADM) products as pectoral extenders in immediate breast reconstruction with tissue expanders or implants are well documented in the medical literature. In this study, the authors examine a commonly used biologic xenograft product that has not yet been described in the medical literature for use in immediate breast reconstruction to determine whether a lower overall complication rate is identified compared to published data on ADM products.

Il Giornale di chirurgia (2012)

In the last years there has been a growing demand of plastic surgery for soft tissue reconstruction. In response to this, many biological and synthetic devices have been produced, aiming to allow wide and complex body reshapings. Acellular dermal matrices are one of these devices, and are made of human or animal tissues made acellular after their sampling. They are used for cervical, breast and abdominal wall reconstruction.

Cross-facial nerve grafting for facial reanimation

Cross-facial nerve grafting for facial reanimation

Peng GL, Azizzadeh B 30 April 2015

Dynamic facial reanimation is the gold standard treatment for a paralyzed face. Over the last century, multiple nerves have been utilized for grafting to the facial nerve in an attempt to produce improved movement. However, in recent years, the use of cross facial nerve grafting with a second stage gracilis free flap has gained popularity due to the ability to generate a spontaneous smile and facial movement. Preoperative history taking and careful examination, as well as pre-surgical planning, are imperative to whether cross facial nerve grafting with a second stage gracilis free flap is appropriate for the patient. A sural nerve graft is ideal given the accessibility of the nerve, the length, as well as the reliability and ease of the nerve harvest. The nerve can be harvested using a small incision, which leaves the patient with minimal post operative morbidity. In this chapter, we highlight the pearls and pitfalls of cross facial nerve grafting.

A novel use of amniotic membrane for fingertip injuries

Journal of wound care (2014)
Fingertip injuries, which are the most common hand injury, represent management challenges for hand surgeons. Full thickness skin grafts are routinely used to cover the fingertip site, but has significant donor site morbidity. As amniotic membranes (AM) are used as a dressing substitute in burns, we decided to evaluate the efficacy of AM as a biologic wound dressing material for coverage of these injuries.
