Quantification of Chronic Lymphedema in a Revised Mouse Model
Background Lymphedema is a common and debilitating complication following cancer treatment with surgical lymph node excision and radiotherapy. Currently there are no curative treatments for lymphedema. Animal models that intended to replicate the disease have been inadequate, making a troublesome transition from experimental therapeutic studies into the clinic. It is therefore imperative to establish an experimental animal model that can reliably replicate clinical lymphedema. Methods To discover the optimal method of lymphedema induction, surgical lymph ablation and irradiation or silicone splint emplacement were com...

Management of Incidental Hernia Discovered During Abdominal Contouring in Post–Bariatric Surgery Patients
Conclusions This is the first study to characterize incidental hernia discovered at the time of body contouring in the post–bariatric surgery patient. The body contouring surgeon should be aware of this common finding. Hernias typically discovered during panniculectomy or abdominoplasty arise in umbilical or epigastric regions, likely from prior laparoscopic port sites, and can be safely repaired by the plastic surgeon with low overall complication rates.

Optimal Reconstruction Method for Large Radionecrosis Following Breast Cancer Treatment: Utility of Free Transverse Rectus Abdominis Myocutaneous Flap Using Contralateral Internal Mammary Artery as Recipient
Conclusions Wide chest wall defects caused by radionecrosis following BC treatment can be successfully reconstructed with a free TRAM flap that uses a contralateral IMA as a recipient. The free TRAM flap demonstrates a lower rate of distal flap loss than the pedicled TRAM flap, hence reduces the risk of severe morbidity. (Source: Annals of Plastic Surgery)

Does Bowstringing Affect Hand Function in Patients Treated With A1 Pulley Release for Trigger Fingers?: Comparison Between Percutaneous Versus Open Technique
We aimed to inspect bowstringing after percutaneous and open release of the A1 pulley for trigger digits and its influence on hand function. Sixty-two patients with a resistant trigger digit were randomized to undergo either open release or percutaneous release of the A1 pulley. We quantified bowstringing of the digit using ultrasonography preoperatively and at 12 and 24 weeks after surgery. Pain on a visual analog scale; Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder, and Hand questionnaire; pinch power; and grip strength were assessed. Bowstringing was significantly increased at 12 weeks after surgery in both groups, and the mean val...

Bilateral Locking of the Metacarpophalangeal Joint: A Case Report and Systematic Literature Review
Conclusion Left untreated, the locked MCP joint may lead to a flexion contracture and disabilities in performing daily life activities. The diagnosis is mainly clinical. The radiographs can show degenerative changes or a particular shape of the metacarpal head/neck as a first clue to the possible cause. Gentle closed reduction can be attempted, but surgery is most often required. The surgical approach depends on the presumed localization of the pathology. (Source: Annals of Plastic Surgery)

Full-Thickness Chemical Burn From Trifluoroacetic Acid: A Case Report and Review of the Literature
Trifluoroacetic acid (TFA) burns are an ill-defined entity due to a lack of reported sizable burns from this chemical. In this case report of the largest reported burn from TFA, we demonstrate that TFA causes extensive, progressive full-thickness tissue injury that may initially appear superficial. Trifluoroacetic acid does not seem to involve the systemic toxicities that result from hydrofluoric acid burns, and there is no role for calcium gluconate in acute management based on this case. Operative intervention should be staged because wound beds may initially seem healthy yet demonstrate continued necrosis. (Source: Anna...

The Regenerative Capability of the Urodele Amphibians and Its Potential for Plastic Surgery
Newts and salamanders, both urodele amphibians, are the only vertebrates with tremendous regenerative potency throughout their lifetime. In contrast to the limited regenerative potential of most mammals, including humans, they can regenerate an entire limb after amputation and many other structures of their bodies, whereas humans mainly respond to injury by the formation of a scar. The intention of plastic surgery is to restore function of injured body parts, with the highest principle to replace “like with like.” Despite tremendous improvements in surgical techniques over the last century, the remaining drawba...

Phentermine: A Systematic Review for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons
Conclusions The relationship between phentermine and anesthesia, if any, is unclear. Hypotension on induction of general anesthesia is the most reported complication of perioperative phentermine use. Specifically, phentermine-induced hypotension may be unresponsive to vasopressors that rely on catecholamine release, such as ephedrine. Therefore, the decision to perform surgery, especially elective surgery, in a patient taking phentermine should be made with caution. Because of the half-life of phentermine, we recommend discontinuing phentermine for at least 4 days prior to surgery. This differs from the classic 2-week di...

Increasing research funding, availability of language-concordant and culturally concordant educational materials, and advocacy and sociopolitical awareness within the plastic surgery community is necessary to advance research on postmastectomy breast reconstruction and, ultimately, eliminate it.

Reconstruction of Large Defects of the Lower Lip After Mohs Surgery: The Use of Combined Karapandzic and Abbe Flaps
Discussion We believe that the standard Karapandzic and Abbe flap compares favorably with the modified Abbe plus modified Karapandzic flap combination in defects up to 80% because it is performed straightforward and can be done under local anethesia. Similarly, when compared with Karapanzic plus Burrow-Bernard-Webster combination in defects up to 80%, we believe that the standard Karapandzic and Abbe flaps are better both in function and in esthetics. In defects larger than 80%, both flap combinations are better than standard Karapandzic and Abbe flaps because of the risk of microstomy. (Source: Annals of Plastic Surgery)

Conclusions Almost half of patients receive similarly sized implants during elective implant exchange. Among those who did decide to change their implant size, more than twice as many patients opted for a larger implant as opposed to a smaller one. Relatively large preoperative implant size and longer time since primary augmentation were associated with the selection of smaller implants during exchange. Further studies should be conducted to reinforce these results. (Source: Annals of Plastic Surgery)
