Congenital Infiltrating Lipomatosis of the Face: Case Report and Literature Review
Rationale Congenital infiltrating lipomatosis of the face (CILF) is a rare disorder characterized by collections of nonencapsulated mature lipocytes that infiltrate surrounding tissues. In this article, we would report a new case of CILF, which may be one of the first few cases reported in China. Patient Concerns An 8-year-old boy presented with a hyperplasia of subcutaneous tissue of his left face, which had been gradually progressing since birth, resulting in a marked facial asymmetry. Then he underwent an operation of resection of the subcutaneous mass, and the postoperative pathological analysis reported a mature ...

Evidence-Based Medicine in Plastic Surgery: Are We There Yet?
Background The practice of evidence-based medicine in plastic surgery is no longer a trend but a reality, with a growing number of studies published in recent years using evidence-based medicine as an assessment tool. Objective The aim of this study was to verify whether the number of citations to articles with a high level of evidence is greater than articles with low level of evidence. Methods A search was conducted in the 4 main international journals of plastic surgery. All original articles published in 2011 were analyzed, selected, and classified based on the study design. The articles were then divided into ...

Effects of the Metallic Port in Tissue Expanders on Dose Distribution in Postmastectomy Radiotherapy: A Tridimensional Experimental Model of Dosimetry in Breast Reconstruction
Abstract The purpose of this research was to develop an experimental model of dosimetry using a breast phantom and evaluate the effects of the metallic port in tissue expanders on dose distribution in postmastectomy radiotherapy. Dose distribution was assessed using an experimental acrylic dosimetry simulator in the absence and presence of a metallic disc (MD), which is similar to that used in tissue expanders containing a magnetic port, by collecting coronal and sagittal radiochromic films. Dosimetry film analysis did not show any changes in dose distribution, except for a MD shadow in the sagittal film where the dose d...

Defining the Role of Free Flaps for Transoral Robotic Surgery
Conclusions Minimally invasive transoral surgical techniques have offered the opportunity to minimize surgical morbidity and potentially deintensify adjuvant therapies. Reconstructive options have evolved to match surgical advances seen with robotic surgeries of oropharyngeal cancers. Microvascular reconstruction has been indicated in select patients including those with extensive soft palate resection, primary tumor abutment of the medial pterygoid musculature, exposure of internal carotid artery vasculature, prior radiation therapy, or a significant defect of the oropharyngeal sphincter. Select patients, based on previ...

Dynamic Cleft Maxillary Orthopedics and Periosteoplasty
This article reports on 25 patients from the initial cohort (20 unilateral and 5 bilateral) that we were able to closely follow up for 25 years, with the same clinical team, making it the longest study of its kind. At this stage, data revealed continued growth of the midface both vertically and horizontally. Secondary alveolar cleft bone grafting when required was in small aliquots placed into well-healed tissue, and orthodontic movement of teeth was through a consolidated alveolus. Orthognathic procedures were performed in 2 of 5 bilateral and 0 of 20 unilateral cases. We concluded that in this cohort, dynamic maxillary...

Poly Implants Prosthèse Breast Implants: A Case Series and Review of the Literature
Conclusions Less than 10 years following breast augmentation, PIP implants demonstrated higher rupture rate compared with other implants. Our data are comparable to overall available rupture rate. Among patients with definitive rupture diagnosis, an elective implant removal should be recommended. In cases of undamaged implants, plastic surgeons should also seriously consider PIP implant explantation. When the patient does not desire to remove the implant, an annual physical examination and breast ultrasound are recommended, beginning a year after augmentation. (Source: Annals of Plastic Surgery)

Influence of Large-Volume Liposuction on Metabolic and Cardiovascular Health: A Systematic Review
Conclusions: Liposuction is among the most common aesthetic procedures performed with advances that make it possible to remove considerable amount of adipose tissue within a short period. Current data, although conflicting, appear to support the notion that LVL can affect cardiovascular risk factors, metabolic balance, and insulin resistance in positive ways. Future research with prospective studies is needed to clarify the role of LVL in improving overall health. (Source: Annals of Plastic Surgery)

Conclusions: Both, the ETs and epineural patches maintained 100% and 50% of fat graft weight at 12 weeks postimplantation, respectively.

These results are encouraging and justify further evaluation of fat volume maintenance in preclinical large animal model in preparation to clinical application. (Source: Annals of Plastic Surgery)

Conclusions: Our study suggested that UCF repairs after hypospadias surgery were easier to fail if one of the UCFs was larger than 2 mm or it had been repaired repeatedly.

The age of patients, site and number of UCFs, complications other than UCF, and postoperative infection were not significantly related to the success rate of UCF repair.

Transverse Cervical Artery Perforator Flap: Standardized Surgical Technique and Multiple Reconstructive Opportunity in Head and Neck Surgery
Abstract: The main purpose of head and neck reconstructive surgery is to provide anatomic restoration of the demolited region and to provide preservation and recovery of function. The anatomical investigations conducted over the years has enabled a detailed knowledge of human body vascularization, giving the opportunity to design and harvest more and more versatile and refined flaps, with increasingly satisfactory results. Even if in the last 2 decades free flaps have been considered a reconstructive criterion standard, they still determine a great physical impact for the patient and require a certain surgical experience. ...

Total Palatal Mobilization and Multilamellar Suturing Technique Improves Outcome for Palatal Fistula Repair
Conclusions: Fistula repair using wide mobilization of the entire palate through previous repair incisions and multilamellar suturing technique has a very low fistula recurrence rate. Addition of the fourth layer of suturing and the use of a Dorrance-type incision further improves the outcome. This approach provides wide tissue release and access to tissue layers for better repair and tension-free closure. Combining intravelar veloplasty with fistula repair is safe and allows management of the fistula and its possible consequences on palatal function in a single procedure.

Fat Graft Survival After Recipient Site Pretreatment With Fractional Carbon Dioxide Laser
Background: Fat grafting is a commonly performed procedure not only for augmenting the soft tissue but also for regeneration in esthetic and reconstructive plastic surgery. However, unpredictable fat survival rate because of high resorption rate is remained as the main problem. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of pretreatment of the recipient site to the fat survival using fractional carbon dioxide (CO2) laser. Methods: The rats were divided to 2 groups. Inguinal fat pads of rats were transplanted to the dorsum without pretreatment in the control group. The study group was preconditioned by fractio...

Role of Homeodomain-Interacting Protein Kinase 2 in the Pathogenesis of Tissue Fibrosis in Keloid-Derived Keratinocytes
Abstract: Epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) plays a critical role in fibrotic keloid formation, which is characterized by excessive collagen and extracellular matrix synthesis and deposition. Growing evidence suggests that the serine/threonine kinase homeodomain-interacting protein kinase 2 (HIPK2) acts upstream of several major fibrosis signaling pathways; however, the role of HIPK2 in the keloid fibrogenesis remains unknown. In the current study, we investigated the roles of HIPK2 in the pathogenesis of keloids. Primary normal skin and keloid keratinocytes were cultured and pretreated with transforming growth facto...
