Trends and characteristics of neurotization during breast reconstruction: perioperative outcomes using the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (ACS-NSQIP)
This study aimed to investigate the impact of performing neurotization during breast reconstruction on total operating time and post-operative morbidity. The 2015 through 2019 American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (ACS-NSQIP) databases were utilized to identify patients who underwent breast reconstruction with and without neurotization. Baseline demographics, comorbidities, operative characteristics and outcomes were examined for each group. Thirty-day complication and readmission rates were compared using univariable and multivariable logistic regressions. Of 73,507 patients identified...

An investigation of dynamic ulnar impingement after the Darrach procedure with ultrasonography
J Plast Surg Hand Surg. 2021 Aug 25:1-8. doi: 10.1080/2000656X.2021.1968416. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTDynamic ulnar impingement is a common and painful symptom after the Darrach procedure. However, the current detection method with static radiographs often falls short of examining the dynamically symptomatic wrists. We, therefore, investigate the utility of ultrasonography to assess dynamic ulnar impingement. In this cross-sectional study, 20 patients, with 22 wrists, who had undergone the Darrach procedure were evaluated at a mean of 55 months (range, 25-171) from the index procedure. Real-time ultrasonographic imagi...

Modified Frailty Index (mFI) predicts 30-day complications after microsurgical breast reconstruction

Management of venous flap insufficiency: the role of low molecular weight heparin in salvage
We examined the efficiency of low molecular weight heparin administration in various forms and dressing methods in venous insufficiency. Forty-five Sprague Dawley rats were included and inferior epigastric artery perforated island flaps were obtained from the abdominal skin of the animals. Nine animals were randomly allocated to each of five experimental groups: sham-control (Group 1), venous occlusion only (Group 2), occlusion with systemic enoxaparin (Group 3), occlusion with systemic enoxaparin + local enoxaparin infusion to the punctiform incisions (Group 4), and occlusion with systemic enoxaparin + local enoxaparin in...

Modified Frailty Index (mFI) predicts 30-day complications after microsurgical breast reconstruction
J Plast Surg Hand Surg. 2021 Aug 25:1-7. doi: 10.1080/2000656X.2021.1962333. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTFrailty lacks a universal definition. The modified Frailty Index (mFI) using patient comorbidities can be used to measure frailty. We hypothesized that mFI predicts 30-day complications after microsurgical breast reconstruction. American College of Surgeons' (ACS) National Surgical Quality Improvement Project (NSQIP) was investigated to identify patients undergoing microsurgical breast reconstruction between 2005-2014 using Current Procedure Terminology (CPT) code, 19364. We used mFI as a measure of frailty. The patie...

Management of venous flap insufficiency: the role of low molecular weight heparin in salvage
We examined the efficiency of low molecular weight heparin administration in various forms and dressing methods in venous insufficiency. Forty-five Sprague Dawley rats were included and inferior epigastric artery perforated island flaps were obtained from the abdominal skin of the animals. Nine animals were randomly allocated to each of five experimental groups: sham-control (Group 1), venous occlusion only (Group 2), occlusion with systemic enoxaparin (Group 3), occlusion with systemic enoxaparin + local enoxaparin infusion to the punctiform incisions (Group 4), and occlusion with systemic enoxaparin + local enoxaparin in...

Partial trapeziectomy and pyrocarbon interpositional implant (Pyrodisk) for trapeziometacarpal osteoarthritis in the active working population: outcomes of a 10 years-experience
J Plast Surg Hand Surg. 2021 Aug 25:1-6. doi: 10.1080/2000656X.2021.1964979. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTThe treatment of trapeziometacarpal (TM) osteoarthritis is still debated, as many surgical options are available, and no technique has proven to be superior. Prosthetic treatment in this context has been described since the early 60s. Recently, the use of pyrolytic carbon-based prosthesis has revolutionized arthroplasty surgery in the hand. We performed a retrospective investigation of our surgical management of TM osteoarthritis since 2010 including the study only patients treated with partial trapeziectomy and Pyrod...

An investigation of dynamic ulnar impingement after the Darrach procedure with ultrasonography
J Plast Surg Hand Surg. 2021 Aug 25:1-8. doi: 10.1080/2000656X.2021.1968416. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTDynamic ulnar impingement is a common and painful symptom after the Darrach procedure. However, the current detection method with static radiographs often falls short of examining the dynamically symptomatic wrists. We, therefore, investigate the utility of ultrasonography to assess dynamic ulnar impingement. In this cross-sectional study, 20 patients, with 22 wrists, who had undergone the Darrach procedure were evaluated at a mean of 55 months (range, 25-171) from the index procedure. Real-time ultrasonographic imagi...

Preliminary outcomes of combined surgical approach for lower extremity lymphedema: supraclavicular lymph node transfer and lymphaticovenular anastomosis
CONCLUSIONS: The combined approach showed a significant decrease in the circumference of LEL. Additional LVAs could reinforce the effect of a VLNT. Larger series with longer follow-up is needed to confirm our findings.PMID:34423730 | DOI:10.1080/2000656X.2021.1964980 (Source: Journal of Plastic Surgery and Hand Surgery)

Fingertip injury epidemiology: an Indian perspective
This study is aimed at providing epidemiology of fingertip injury in India. Epidemiological data were collected and analysed through a retrospective review of all fingertip injuries over a period of four years treated in our department. In the paediatric population, among the 241 injuries in 221children, most occurred at home (98%). Most incidents were in children under five years of age (74%). The most commonly involved digit is the middle finger (29%) and door crush was the commonest reason (80%). Incomplete fingertip amputation with nail bed injury was seen in 80% of cases. In adults, there were 351 injuries in 290 pati...

A systematic review of direct preference measurements in health states treated with plastic surgery
J Plast Surg Hand Surg. 2021 Aug 7:1-11. doi: 10.1080/2000656X.2021.1953039. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTOne way to compare health care needs and outcomes on common scales is by estimating the strength of preferences or willingness-to-pay (WTP). The aim of this study was to review directly measured preference values and WTP estimates for health states treated by plastic surgery. The included articles had to meet the criteria defined in the SPIDER (Sample, Phenomenon of Interest, Design, Evaluation, Research type). Relevant databases were searched using predetermined strings. Data were extracted in a standardised manner. ...

Is there any difference in perioperative characteristics or postoperative complications between overweight, normal-weight and obese patients in delayed DIEP reconstructions?
J Plast Surg Hand Surg. 2021 Aug 9:1-6. doi: 10.1080/2000656X.2021.1962334. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTIncreased number of overweight and obese women are seeking breast reconstruction. Studies have demonstrated that obese experience increased rates of complications, but less data is available considering overweight patients. We analyzed the impact of body mass index (BMI) on perioperative characteristics and complications in unilateral delayed deep inferior epigastric perforator flap (DIEP) reconstructions. The records of patients with DIEP reconstruction performed between 2014 and 2020, were retrospectively analyzed. P...
