REVIEW
Jeremy Bishay, Isobel Yeap, Tim Wang
BACKGROUND: Globally, over 1 million lower limb amputations are performed annually, with approximately 75% of patients experiencing significant pain, profoundly impacting their quality of life and functional capabilities. Targeted muscle reinnervation (TMR) has emerged as a surgical solution involving the rerouting of amputated nerves to specific muscle targets. Originally introduced to enhance signal amplification for myoelectric prosthesis control, TMR has expanded its applications to include neuroma management and pain relief...

BACKGROUND: Treatment of scalp malignancies may include the need for craniectomy. The decision to perform cranioplasty is not straightforward and is frequently subjective. The purpose of this study was to assess the clinical outcomes after reconstruction of complex scalp and calvarial defects by comparing patients with and without cranioplasty. METHODS: Retrospective review of the clinical records of a consecutive series of patients who underwent scalp soft tissue reconstruction after craniectomy for malignancy or osteoradionecrosis between 2014 and 2022 at Royal Melbourne Hospital was conducted...

BACKGROUND: The existing diagnostic criteria for septic wrist are nonspecific, exposing patients with noninfectious etiologies to surgical morbidity. This study aimed to identify predictors differentiating septic wrist from other etiologies. METHODS: An institutional review board-approved retrospective review was conducted on patients with a presumed diagnosis of septic wrist (2003-2022). Bivariate and multiple regression analyses were performed to identify correlation between confirmed septic wrist and comorbidities (autoimmune diseases, immunosuppression, crystalline arthropathy, intravenous [IV] drug use, smoking), penetrating trauma, fever, multi-joint involvement, inflammatory markers (erythrocyte sedimentation rate [ESR]/C-reactive protein [CRP]/white blood cells [WBC]), serum uric acid level, blood cultures, imaging findings, and synovial fluid analysis...

BACKGROUND: Thickened nerve cross-sectional areas (CSA) have been investigated in compressive neuropathy, but the longitudinal extent of nerve swelling has yet to be evaluated. We did a volumetric assessment of the ulnar nerve in cubital tunnel syndrome (CuTS) with three-dimensional (3D) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) modeling and investigated this relationship with clinical and electrodiagnostic parameters. METHODS: We compared 40 CuTS patient elbow MRIs to 46 patient elbow MRIs with lateral elbow epicondylitis as controls...

BACKGROUND: The increasing number of esthetic procedures emphasizes the need for effective evaluation methods of outcomes. Current practices include the individual practitioners' judgment in conjunction with standardized scales, often relying on the comparison of before and after photographs. This study investigates whether comparative evaluations influence the perception of beauty and aims to enhance the accuracy of esthetic assessments in clinical and research settings. OBJECTIVE: To compare the evaluation of attractiveness and gender characteristics of faces in group-based versus individual ratings...

BACKGROUND: Non-contrast magnetic resonance imaging (NMRI) has been reported as valuable for the assessment of lymphedema. However, the correlation between NMRI findings and indocyanine green lymphography (ICG-L) findings remains elusive. METHODS: This single-center retrospective study included 26 patients diagnosed with breast cancer-related lymphedema. We examined the prevalence of fluid infiltration in eight regions of the upper extremity, the type of fluid distribution, and the dominant segment of edema on NMRI in comparison to the ICG-L stage...

BACKGROUND: To date, there are no studies investigating the safety and outcomes of facial feminization surgery (FFS) as an outpatient procedure. This is the first study of its kind analyzing the outcomes of ambulatory FFS based on a comparison of complications, post-operative emergency department or urgent care (ED/UC) visits, and readmissions between patients who underwent FFS with admission versus same-day surgery. METHODS: A retrospective analysis was conducted on all patients who underwent FFS in a single integrated healthcare system...

BACKGROUND: Asian patient populations continue to be underrepresented in both plastic surgery research and rates of breast reconstruction. Better elucidation of reconstruction in Asian women may help guide patient-directed counseling. This study investigates the differential effect of body mass index (BMI), a well-known risk factor, for Asian patients in outcomes after breast reconstruction. METHODS: Asian and White breast reconstruction patients were identified by CPT code in the National Surgical Quality Improvement Program...

BACKGROUND: Congenital ear anomalies are regular but often overlooked occurrences. The golden standard of treatment has been to surgically correct these anomalies at a minimum age of 5 to 7 years. As of the last century, ear molding has developed to be a safe, reliable, and effective treatment method. Different treatment methods are still under investigation. This study aims to investigate the use of the EarWell Infant Corrective System in the Dutch population. METHODS: Children aged 0-12 weeks were included in the Zuyderland Medical Center to be treated with the EarWell Infant Corrective System in case of ear deformations...

INTRODUCTION: The goal of lower-extremity reconstructions is primarily to salvage the leg; however, esthetic outcomes are also important. This study aimed to assess the impact of a lower extremity free tissue transfer regarding social functioning, patient-reported esthetic outcomes, and possible differences between fasciocutaneous vs. muscle flaps. MATERIAL AND METHODS: For this cross-sectional multicenter study, patients operated between 2003 and 2021, with a minimum follow-up of 12 months, were identified...

BACKGROUND: The presence of polyotia in individuals with microtia is a rare deformity. Due to the intricate structure of the auricle, uncertain etiology, and challenging corrective techniques, it has always been a focal point in the field of plastic surgery. The present study presents a technique for correcting the combination of polyotia and microtia by utilizing residual ear tissue as graft material. METHODS: The retrospective study included 23 patients with polyotia and microtia from 2018 to 2022...

BACKGROUND: Marjolin ulcer is a specific type of squamous cell cancer that can benefit from the use of lymphoscintigraphy.The purpose of this study was to evaluate 3 different injection techniques for sentinel node biopsy in patients with Marjolin ulcer. METHODS: Forty-eight patients with Marjolin ulcer (27 male and 21 female) ranging in age from 24 to 85 years were included in our study. Intratumoral (IT), peritumoral (PT) and periscar (PS) tissue injections of radiotracer were done in 9, 10, and 29 patients respectively...

The treatment of carpal boss is primarily conservative. Surgical treatment by performing a wedge excision of the bony protrusion, is possible. However, a common belief exists that carpal boss should not be operated because of the high recurrence rate. Additionally, little is known about the clinical outcomes of wedge excision and the preferred post-operative treatment. Patients with carpal boss and persisting pain who underwent wedge excision after conservative treatment were included. They received questionnaires before and three months after surgery...
