Lymphatic Reconstitution and Regeneration After Face Transplantation
Conclusions: These findings support ongoing lymphatic reconstitution between the donor facial allograft and recipient native tissue. Donor lymphatic regeneration begins after facial transplantation and continues long term. This mechanism may be responsible for the temporal and spatial process of lymphatic reconstitution with recipient lymphatic channels. (Source: Annals of Plastic Surgery)

Impact of Abdominal Lipectomy on Post-Sleeve Gastrectomy Surgery Weight Loss
Background: Abdominal lipectomy after bariatric surgery is recommended because of residual excess skin resulting in difficulty with maintaining hygiene, recurrent infections, and functional impairment, interfering with daily activities. There is a dearth of literature examining weight loss outcomes in patients undergoing abdominal lipectomy post sleeve gastrectomy (SG). The purpose of this study was to examine whether post-SG patients who received abdominal lipectomy achieved greater percent excess weight loss (%EWL) than post-SG patients who did not receive abdominal lipectomy. Methods: Retrospective study of patients wh...

Long-Term Outcomes With Porous Polyethylene Implant Reconstruction of Large Craniofacial Defects
Conclusions: This study confirms the material's low rate of infection and extrusion even in large craniofacial defects. Its neuroprotection properties are comparable with other first line alloplastic materials used for cranioplasty. Moreover, it can be shaped as required, there is no resorption with time and no concern for donor site morbidity. The higher exposure rate, in cases in which tissue expansion was also used, was owing to the poor quality of the soft tissue overlying the defect. These qualities make it an attractive option in alloplastic cranioplasty. (Source: Annals of Plastic Surgery)

Squamosal Craniosynostosis: Defining the Phenotype and Indications for Surgical Management
Conclusions: Squamosal craniosynostosis frequently presents in a delayed fashion with nonsyndromic, bilateral involvement. In isolated bilateral squamosal cases, the associated phenotype is frontal prominence, occipital flattening, scaphocephalic tendency (low-end normocephalic cranial index), and superior parietal cornering. Evaluation of clinical signs and computed tomography imaging guides management, as evidence of increased intracranial pressure may indicate need for cranial vault expansion. Although previous literature suggests that nonsyndromic cases are nonsurgical, the majority of cases reviewed required surgical ...

Chemotherapy Extravasation Management: 21-Year Experience
Abstract: Chemotherapy extravasation may result in serious damage to patients, with irreversible local injures and disability. Evidence-based standardization on extravasation management is lacking and many institutions do not practice adequate procedures to prevent the severer damages. Our aim was to explore the prevention and treatment of extravasation injuries, proposing a standard therapeutic protocol together with a review of the literature. From January 1994 to December 2015, 545 cases were reviewed (age range, 5–87 years; 282 men and 263 women). Our therapeutic protocol consisted of local infiltration of saline...

Does the Sequence of Tattooing and Nipple Reconstruction Affect Nipple Projection?
Conclusions: These findings showed that the sequence of nipple reconstruction and tattooing had no significant effect on the projection of the reconstructed nipple. It is easier to tattoo homogeneously before nipple reconstruction because of the flat surface but more difficult to make a smooth areolar peripheral margin and circular areolar shape when reconstructing the nipple. The sequence of tattooing and nipple reconstruction can be determined according to esthetic and clinical considerations. (Source: Annals of Plastic Surgery)

Use of Fat Grafts in Facial Reconstruction on the Wounded Soldiers From the First World War (WWI) by Hippolyte Morestin (1869–1919)
Conclusions: Hippolyte Morestin can be named one of the pioneers of facial reconstruction. A retroperspective analysis of his work with adipose grafts proves interesting because even though not being the first to apply this technique, he contributed, by means of experimentation and reproduction to proving it an innovative and useful method in facial reconstruction. It was not until the 1990s that adipose grafts were again applied under the name of lipostructure. Nowadays, they are commonly used in cosmetic and restorative surgery.

Reviewing the Evidence to Guide Clinical Care: Proliferative Breast Lesions in Breast Reduction Specimens
Abstract: The number of reduction mammoplasties performed in the United States continues to increase annually. Given the high incidence of breast cancer in women, it is routine practice for breast tissue excised during routine breast reductions procedures to be sent for pathology review. During pathology assessment, occult malignancy and on-occasion proliferative breast lesions of unknown and/or variable malignancy may also be present. We provide a review of commonly diagnosed atypical proliferative breast lesions in breast reduction specimens and a guide to plastic surgeons for further management.

Enhancing Nitric Oxide Bioavailability via Exogen Nitric Oxide Synthase and L-Arginine Attenuates Ischemia-Reperfusion–Induced Microcirculatory Alterations
Conclusions: Enhancing NO bioavailability via exogen application of NOSs and L-arginine significantly attenuated ischemia-reperfusion–induced microcirculatory alterations in the microvasculature of skeletal muscle. Significant hemodynamic adverse effects were not present, thus demonstrating this approach might be useful for therapeutic intervention. This “pharmacologic preconditioning” could be an easy and effective interventional strategy to uphold conversation of L-arginine to NO under ischemic conditions. (Source: Annals of Plastic Surgery)
