[COVID-19 and plastic surgery: aesthetic surgery or essential medical care? - Impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on patient care in the plastic surgery department at an university hospital].
This study retrospectively assessed the caseload at the Division of Plastic, Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery at Medical University Graz during the so-called lockdown from 16 March 2020 to 27 April 2020 (6 weeks) as well as two weeks before. The data was compared with the corresponding time period of the year 2019. Surgical spectrum, procedural urgency, medical indication of surgical procedures as well as complication rates were compared. RESULTS:  The suspension of elective cases led to a significant reduction in caseload of 57.5 % (2019: 353, 2020: 150 cases). There was a s...

[The influence of harvesting and processing on the regenerative potential in fat grafting].
Authors: Klietz ML, Kückelhaus M, Wiebringhaus P, Raschke MJ, Hirsch T, Aitzetmüller MM Abstract The autologous lipotransfer represents an established method in the field of Plastic Surgery. As a reliable and safe method for breast reconstruction and breast augmentation it offers an alternative to established methods such as implants and flap surgery.Survival rate of adipose derived stromal cells limits success or failure of fat grafting. Slight changes in the fat grafting process can lead to huge changes in ADSC-survival rate.This review wants to optimize the fat-grafting process to ensure best outcomes....

Technical trick in suture-button suspensionplasty for the treatment of thumb carpometacarpal arthritis.
In conclusion, we believe that our technique simplifies the most challenging part of the operation, shortens the operation time, preserves the original first ray height and diminishes the exposure of ionizing radiation as it reduces the need for fluoroscopy.

[Liposuctions in the ambulatory setting].
CONCLUSIONS:  Tumescence anaesthesia in an outpatient setting has various advantages, e. g. cost reduction for provider and patient as well as avoidance of the risk profile of general anaesthesia. Also patients can change their position autonomously, which can be beneficial for surgery. However, there are limitations in terms of the lipoaspirate volume that can be removed safely. With increasing lipoaspirate volumes, more local anaesthetic is needed, which also increases the postoperative monitoring time. In the authors view, tumescent anaesthesia should only be used for small-volume and localised liposuctions....

Authors: Kiefer J, Diehm Y, Germann G, Kneser U, Terness P, Radu CA Abstract BACKGROUND: Vascularized Composite Allotransplantation (VCA) enables the restoration of complex tissue defects. Since the first successful hand and face transplants were performed, clinical and experimental research has consistently improved immunosuppressive therapies. The incubation of peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) with mitomycin C (MMC) results in immunomodulatory cells (MICs). In previous studies, the systemic application of MICs on the day of allogeneic hind limb transplantation led to a significant immunosuppression in r...

CONCLUSION: In the synopsis of recent literature, we recommend the following management of burns due to e-cigarette explosions. The guidelines of the Advanced Trauma Life Support should be followed, signs of an inhalation trauma should be checked and litmus test should be performed prior to irrigation with aqueous solutions to prevent exothermic reactions with remaining metals. If litmus test shows alkali pH wounds should be irrigated by mineral oil. PMID: 33291165 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Handchirurgie Mikrochirurgie Plastische Chirurgie)

[Danger in the pocket: explosive e-cigarette].
CONCLUSION: Burns from an exploding e-cigarette represent a rare new entity. The force of the explosion of the battery body leads to injury patterns that require treatment in specialised centres with the entire spectrum of burn care. Mixed injuries with deep burns occur at the predilection sites due to thermal action, colliquative necrosis due to leaking electrolyte fluid and contamination by foreign bodies (metallic lithium, splinters of the destroyed housing) and require special initial measures. The extinction of fire caused by e-cigarettes also requires special measures. Proper handling of CE-certified devices is essen...

[Current review of factors in the stem cell donor that influence the regenerative potential of adipose tissue-derived stem cells].
CONCLUSION: We recommend characterisation of the ASC donor cohort in all publications, regardless of whether they are experimental studies or clinical trials. By these means, donor factors that influence experimental or clinical findings can be made transparent and results are more comparable. Moreover, this knowledge can be used for study design to form a homogenous donor cohort by precise clinical history and physical examination.

Donorsite defect of medial femoral condyle corticoperiostal flap in the treatment of lower limb infected nonunions.
CONCLUSIONS:  Our results suggest that the use of bone flaps for the treatment of infected non-unions is an effective procedure, that must be performed after accurate debridement of the non-union site. The corticoperiosteal flap seems to have few morbidities on the donor site and a high percentage of successful bone healing.

Arthroscopic treatment for nonunion of the scaphoid.
Authors: Haugstvedt JR, Wong CW Abstract Scaphoid nonunion has traditionally been treated by open surgery where the pseudarthrosis has been cleaned while either a structural wedged bone graft, or chips of cancellous bone has been used to fill the defect. K-wires or a screw has been used to stabilize the bone. Using the arthroscopic technique for treatment of nonunion of the scaphoid gives us small exposure to the joint, however with an excellent view of the bones, the articular surfaces and the intraarticular ligaments. The results from arthroscopic treatment for scaphoid nonunion with bone grafting using chips of ...

Arthroscopy in combination with headless cannulated screws, permits reproducing the same intervention with the advantages of a minimally invasive surgery. This technique has already been published in the past supported by the early experience in this new exciting field.

Authors: Fodor SG, Christopoulos G, Lehmkuhl L, Prommersberger KJ, Mühldorfer-Fodor M Abstract Clinical and radiological diagnostics are the base of a differentiated treatment of carpal disorders. With special regard to diagnostics of the scaphoid, not only the choice and the correct implementation of the imaging methods are crucial, but also their methodical limitations have to be taken into account. No other common fracture is more often undiagnosed, because neglected or overlooked. Concomitantly, delayed or untreated scaphoid fractures require demanding therapies in the sequel and may lead to functional res...

Several surgical procedures treating scaphoid non-unions have been established. These aim to restore correct anatomy to provide stability and adequate blood flow. Treatment options range from avascular to free, vascularized bone grafts. The two most used free vascularized bone grafts derive from the iliac crest and the medial femoral condyle.

Computer assistance is of an unmatched value when reconstructing a non-united scaphoid: From CT data a true 3-D-model can be generated, fully interactive; thus it can be moved, manipulated and of course also printed for hands-on experience. Comparing the virtual 3-D-models of the nonunion with the healthy contralateral scaphoid, the exact amount of the deformity is calculated which allows for the planning of an anatomically precise reconstruction of the scaphoid shape. Finally, computer generated patient specific instruments...
