The pedicled buccal fat pad in oral reconstruction.

CONCLUSION: Although the BFP has long been recognized and despite the simplicity of preparing the flap itself, numerically significant reports concerning the use of this technique in reconstructive facial surgery have only recently been published. The pedicled buccal fat flap is convenient and reliably repairs oral defects up to 4.5 cm in diameter on the ipsilateral side of the soft and hard palate, posterior alveolar region of the maxilla and the retromolar mandibular area. The surgical procedure is simple and morbidity at the donor site in not significant. PMID: 26486203 [PubMed - in process]

In this study, scaffold-free tissue constructs engineered using periodontal ligament cells (PDLCs), which contain a population of adult stem/progenitor cells, self-assembled into an organized multi-tissue structure comprising a mineralized cementum-like core enclosed within a periodontal ligament (PDL)-like tissue. Scaffold-free engineered constructs were formed by culturing human PDLCs to form a cell sheet on six-well dishes containing two minutien pins placed 7 mm apart. The cell sheet was contracted by the cells to roll into the pins forming a cylindrical construct anchored on either end by the pins. These tissues ...

Conclusion: Accurate and timely diagnosis of nail bed injury and its meticulous repair is cardinal to the management of any nail bed injury. However all nail bed injuries must be seen in the context of associated injuries of the finger tip complex, namely skin, soft tissue and distal phalanx injuries. Fixation of associated bony injury which closely underlines the nail bed and provides physical support to the nail bed along with correction of soft tissue injuries in the form of flaps or grafts, compounded by the repair or replacement of nail plate in the first 24 hours.

Conclusions Ethanol has proven its consistent curative potential at long-term follow-up for high-flow AVMs and low-flow VM lesions at long-term follow-up as lesions in the periphery. Complication rates remain low. The procedures are tolerated well by the patients and done on an out-patient basis. Prior surgery and embolization procedures can cause difficulty in AVM lesion access, but does not obviate further ethanol endovascular treatment. Disclosures W. Yakes: None.

Conclusion After reconstruction of isolated ACL tears with a hamstring graft, FNB is not more effective than LIA on patients’ early postoperative pain. Patients who received a FNB consumed significantly less opioid-like analgesics. Level of evidence III – Prospective, comparative, non-randomized study.

We present an interesting case of a patient with a large scalp defect following melanoma excision that was successfully reconstructed with an Orticochea flap. A review of scalp reconstruction and uses of the Orticochea flap will follow the case presentation. CASE PRESENTATION A 61-year old Caucasian gentleman presented to the office with a two year history of a slowly enlarging hyperpigmented lesion of the occipital scalp. The patient reported a history of significant sun exposure. Examination of the scalp revealed a 2.5cm ulcerated hyperpigmented lesion of the occipital scalp, along with a 1cm focus of hyperpigmentation ...
