An algorithm to improve outcomes of radial forearm flap donor site.

CONCLUSIONS: Application of the algorithm described has led to a significant reduction in RFF donor site complication rates. This demonstrates that if flap donor sites are analyzed and tailor treated in the same way as primary defects are, instead of being given secondary importance and just grafted, outcomes improve.

Authors: Wu Z, Liu X, Yuan D, Zhao J Abstract Venous lower limb ulcers are very common and affect ~1% of the general population. The human acellular amniotic membrane (HAAM), which is isolated from the amniotic membrane (AM) via excluding the majority of cellular components, has lower antigenicity than the AM. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of the HAAM, adopted to treat venous ulcers (VUs) of the lower extremities. The HAMM was isolated from the AM by the Stem Cells and Tissue Engineering laboratory at the West China Hospital of Sichuan University (Chengdu, China). HAMMs w...

Conclusion: Limb sparing resection of a soft tissue sarcoma is known to be at high risk of postoperative wound complications. We found that complications uncommonly present greater than six weeks after initial treatment and surgical management predictably results in retention of the affected limb and a healed wound in those requiring operative treatment.Level of Evidence: 4 - Case Series.

We aimed to assess the efficacy of pirfenidone, a drug with anti-inflammatory, antifibrotic, and antioxidant effects, to accelerate wound healing. We hypothesized that pirf...

ConclusionsOur results suggest that Integra is a very versatile tool for the treatment of burn sequelae. It yields good cosmetic and functional results in most cases with very little donor site morbidity. We believe that Integra should be viewed as one of the best current options for reconstructive procedures in burn patients.Level of Evidence: Level IV, therapeutic study.

Conclusion: The BMG placement can be ventral, dorsal, lateral or combined dorsal and ventral BMG in the meeting of stricture but the first two are most common (5, 6). Ventral location provides the advantages of ease of exposure and good vascular supply by avoiding circumferential rotation of the urethra (7). Early success rates of dorsal and ventral onlay with BMG were 96 and 85%, respectively. However, long-term follow-up revealed essentially no difference in success rates (8 – 11). Anterior urethral stricture treatments are various, and comprehensive consideration should be given in selecting individualized treatme...

Skin grafting is one of the oldest and most common procedures in plastic surgery, and the treatment of skin donor sites has been an important issue for decades [1]. Split thickness skin grafts (STSGs) contain the entirety of the epidermis and a variable amount of dermis depending on the thickness of the harvested graft [2]. This procedure creates a wound in the donor site that is similar to a superficial, second-degree burn, which usually takes between 14 and 21days to spontaneously heal with relatively inconspicuous scarring [3].
