BACKGROUND: Nerve injuries are a common occurrence among hand injuries, which at the time of the COVID-19 emergency, did not appear to have reduced their incidence. The treatment of these injuries is urgent, but the pandemic has led to a reduction in the availability of resources and a consequent reorganization of activities. Principles about Wide-Awake Local Anesthesia No Tourniquet (WALANT) in hand surgery expressed by LaLonde helped hand surgeons to adapt to this new condition by demonstrating a possible outpatient pathway for the treatment of hand traumatic conditions...

BACKGROUND: Surgery for hand trauma accounts for a significant proportion of the plastic surgery training curriculum. The aim of this article is to create a standardised simulation training module for hand fracture fixation on open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) techniques for residents in order to create a standardised hand-training framework that universally hones their skill and prepares them for their first encounter in a clinical setting. METHODS: A step-ladder approach training using three-dimensional (3D)-printed ex vivo hand biomimetics was employed on a cohort of 15 plastic surgery residents ( n  = 15)...

BACKGROUND: Previous reports have evidenced the disruptive effect of the COVID-19 in microsurgical and reconstructive departments. We report our experience with cross-leg free flaps and (CLFF) and cross-leg vascular cable bridge flaps (CLVCBF) for lower limb salvage, technical consideration to decrease morbidity, and some structural modifications to our protocols for standard of care adapted to the COVID-19. METHODS: We retrospectively included consecutive patients undergoing reconstruction with CLFFs and CLVCBFs for lower limb salvage from January 2003 to May 2022...

BACKGROUND: INTERPLAST, Inc. was founded in 1969 by plastic surgeons in Stanford, CA, to create a financial basis through donations to operate foreign patients at Stanford or send surgical teams to developing countries. With the same financial effort, 50 to 100 times more patients can be operated on locally than in a hospital at home. Stanford's example was appealing to many plastic surgeons worldwide, who founded similar INTERPLAST NGOs in their own countries. METHODS: A literature review revealed worldwide humanitarian actions of INTERPLAST teams, whose annual effectiveness is comparable to the operation numbers of large plastic surgery departments...

BACKGROUND: Transgender individuals have long experienced discrimination and exclusion from medicine. Misgendering occurs when an individual is referred to using a gender or address incongruent with their identity. We evaluated the incidence of misgendering throughout the perioperative experience for patients undergoing gender-affirming surgery (GAS). METHODS: Patients diagnosed with gender dysphoria who previously received GAS by the senior author were contacted to complete an IRB-approved survey to evaluate instances of misgendering while in the hospital for GAS...

BACKGROUND: Chest masculinization is a commonly performed gender-affirming procedure in transmasculine and non-binary patients and has increased in prevalence in recent years despite continued barriers to surgical care. With the expansion of insurance coverage and trained surgeons, patients at times have the opportunity to be selective in choosing their gender-affirming surgeon. This study aimed to investigate factors that transmasculine individuals consider important when selecting their chest masculinization plastic surgeon...

We present a patient whom we believe developed a late abdominal mesh collection in response to COVID-19 mRNA vaccination booster and COVID-19 infection. A polypropylene mesh was placed during her right breast reconstruction operation 2 years ago where she underwent a right transverse abdominis rectus muscle (TRAM) free flap. She recovered uneventfully from this operation. This lady, though vaccinated, developed respiratory symptoms and tested positive for COVID-19 infection 3 days after her booster injection...

BACKGROUND: Liposuction is one of the most common procedures in the practice of plastic surgery. Since it evolved, continuous modifications have been to decrease blood loss so that patients are hemodynamically stable intra- and postoperatively. Tranexamic acid (TXA) has long been used for its antifibrinolytic properties that were beneficial in reducing blood loss, rate of transfusion, and hemoglobin drop in major trauma and surgeries. Its use in plastic surgery, however, is still limited...

Background: The transversus abdominus plane (TAP) block reduces postoperative donor site pain in patients undergoing autologous breast reconstruction with an abdominally based flap. This study aimed to determine the effect of TAP blocks on rates of conversion to chronic opioid use. Methods: The Clinformatics Data Mart was queried from 2003 to 2019, extracting adult encounters for abdominally based free and pedicled flaps based on common procedural terminology (CPT) codes...

Background: Bromelain-based enzymatic debridement is gaining increased interest from burn specialists in the last few years. The objective of this manuscript is to update the previous, first Spanish consensus document from 2017 (Martínez-Méndez et al. 43:193-202, 2017), on the use of enzymatic debridement with NexoBrid ® in burn injuries, adding the clinical experience of a larger panel of experts, integrating plastic surgeons, intensivists, and anesthesiologists. Methods: A consensus guideline was established by following a modified Delphi methodology of a 38-topic survey in two rounds of participation...

JOURNAL ARTICLE

Biodegradable Temporising Matrix (BTM), a skin substitute, has been recently developed as a novel adjunct to the plastic surgeon's reconstructive repertoire. Its use has been described in literature in a variety of settings and complex wounds, including those that previously would have been described as "non-graftable", with favourable outcomes. We present the case of a patient with a wound to the right foot and ankle following extravasation injury. Following surgical debridement, this injury was managed with BTM, which allowed granulation and production of a "neo-dermis"...

REVIEW
Hebert Lamblet, Lydia Masako Ferreira
Background: Throughout its illustrious history, plastic surgery has searched for novel regenerative therapies and procedures. Recently, interest has emerged in using adipose tissue-derived stem cells (ASCs) in an ethical, easy, and reproducible manner. ASCs are generally not administered alone but as a constituent of the stromal vascular fraction (SVF) in clinical practice. Herein, we searched for innovative fat collection and ASC isolation technologies and applications and evaluated each study's relevance to plastic surgery...

BACKGROUND: Surgery can be stressful, requiring decision-making and performance under pressure. The COVID-19 pandemic has further challenged surgeons' well-being and training. Excess stress adversely affects well-being, technical and non-technical performance, and, by extension, patient care. Little emphasis has been placed on interventions to improve individual surgeons' stress resilience despite mindfulness training being robustly linked to resilience, well-being, and improved executive function and performance...
