Immediate vs. delayed toe-to-thumb transfer: Is the infection rate greater?
CONCLUSION: For toe-to-thumb transfer, there are published reports of a wide range of infection rates of the recipient sites. The authors compared their results in terms of infection rate between immediate reconstruction, group A, and delayed reconstruction, group B. Immediate toe-to-thumb transfer showed equal success rates to delayed transfer. No statistically significant difference in risk of infection between the two groups was found. Results showed that the immediate reconstruction was as safe and reliable as the delayed one. PMID: 31698486 [PubMed - in process] (Source: Handchirurgie Mikrochirurgie Plastische Chirurgie)

Functional donor-site morbidity after soleus muscle-flap procedure in the treatment of lower limb severe injuries.
Authors: Riccio M, Zingaretti N, Verdini F, Marchesini A, De Francesco F, Parodi PC Abstract BACKGROUND: The gastrocnemius and soleus muscle flaps are the most commonly used transfer flaps to treat lower limb severe lesions. The use of the muscle as coverage tissuemay incur in functionality loss and motor control deficits. The aim of this study is to assess whether functional deficits are present during gait, posture and heel rise test (HRT).

CONCLUSION: The orthoplastic approach to complex leg defects yields shorter treatment time and better functional results compared to the orthopedic-based approach. External fixation and microsurgical reconstruction are not necessarily alternative procedures but can integrate in an orthoplastic path to address at best both soft tissue and bone reconstruction.

Distribution of intramuscular giant lipomas in the functional compartments of the forearm: a report of 12 cases.
CONCLUSIONS:  Intramuscular lipoma is a relatively uncommon tumour, especially in the forearm. Because of the proximity to the neurovascular structures in the forearm, excision of lipomas should be performed with care and include wide incisions. Additionally, knowing the anatomical features of the compartment where the lipoma is localised in the forearm is important in planning surgery to enable easier dissection of the lipoma and lessen the risk of damage to adjacent neurovascular structures.

CONCLUSION:  Radial forearm phalloplasty with a prelaminated urethra has become a well-established procedure in female-to-male gender reassignment surgery. In our study, the rate of urological complications was significantly reduced to a level lower than those reported in previous studies. The number of fistulas was significantly reduced during our learning curve and by surgical modifications such as a visor flap at the site of the urethral anastomosis. This large series provides a database of complications classified according to Clavien Dindo for comparison with future techniques and innovations. PMID: 31610580 ...

Authors: Popp D, Tapking C, Branski LK Abstract Hand function is crucial for everyday and professional life. Even small burns can have a great impact on hand function, either from the injury itself or from scar contractions. Preservation and restoration of hand function are essential for mental and physical well-being of burn survivors. Reduced hand function can lead to social isolation and occupational invalidity. Even though one hand represents only 3 % of the total body surface area, hand burns are categorized as severe burn injuries and are a primary indication for treatment in a dedicated burn center.

Also plastic surgery contributes substantially to the treatment of complications occurring in other specialties. For those reasons, an independent and adequately staffed department of plastic surgery should be available at all clinics of maximum care, especially at all 35 university hospitals in Germany.

The Thin bilateral and bipedicled DIEAP flap for axillary reconstruction in hidradenitis suppurativa.
CONCLUSIONS: Axillary reconstruction with the DIEAP flap allows reconstruction of large and bilateral defect in a single operation closing the donor site primarily. If the flap is thinned during the operation, no thinning seems to be needed postoperatively. Otherwise the flap shall be thinned by liposuction three months after the initial procedure. We believe that the benefits of this technique outweigh the added complexity of a microsurgical procedure when bilateral resections are needed, the defects are too wide to close the donor site of a pedicled flap primarily and the lower abdomen is free of disease.
