There are various models for practicing microsurgical anastomoses, from synthetic to ex vivo and in vivo biological ones. In this study, we present the domestic turkey ( Meleagris gallopavo ) as an ex vivo biological model in the practice of surgical anastomoses. In our opinion, it represents a model that is very similar to a human one, low cost, and easy to find. In fact, our study shows that the diameters of the arteries and veins used for anastomoses (tibial artery diameter: 2.5 ± 0.6 mm; tibial vein diameter: 3...

BACKGROUND: Type 2 muscle flaps are characterized by major and minor pedicles, such that the minor pedicle is unreliable, and the major pedicle is a requirement for the success of the flap. The role of the minor pedicle, beyond the decreased caliber and decreased vascular territory in comparison to the major pedicle, is poorly understood. We sought to model the fluid dynamics of a model flap containing a major and minor pedicle to understand differences between the pedicles and the implications on perfusion...

Tingfeng Xiong, Qing Ye
BACKGROUND: The skin-tarsus-skin and orbicularis-tarsus-orbicularis fixation methods are widely used in double-eyelid surgery. Both methods have limitations. In this study, the two surgical methods were integrated and applied to form a stable double eyelid that mimics the natural physiological structure with minimal visible scarring. METHODS: At the inner, middle, and outer sites of the double-eyelid line, 7-0 silk sutures were passed successively through the orbicularis oculi muscle at the lower edge of the incision, the tarsus/anterior tarsus tissue, and the orbicularis oculi muscle at the upper edge of the incision, and the skin was sutured with 8-0 thread...

Virtual surgical planning (VSP) and three-dimensional (3D) printing can increase precision and reduce surgical time in craniofacial reconstruction. However, the elevated cost and manufacturing time of outsourced workflows is increasing the development of in-house solutions. One of the main challenges in in-house workflows is to create cutting guides that hold plate position information. This is due to the fact that hospitals usually lack the infrastructure required to design and 3D print custom-made plates...

BACKGROUND: The use of "skin boosters" for rejuvenating aged skin is widely used. However, the accurate injection of the skin booster into the dermal layer remains a challenge due to the density of the dermis. The purpose of this study was to investigate the optimal mechanical variables of delivery that enabled correct targeting of the product to the dermis for optimal results. METHODS: We investigated the impact of mechanical variables (syringe diameter, needle diameter and length, and viscosity of the skin booster) on the force required for intradermal injection in porcine skin...

BACKGROUND: Breast augmentation is one of the most commonly performed aesthetic surgery procedures. Yet, few reports in the literature analyze individual surgeon experiences with a unified surgical method on a large group of patients. This study aimed to analyze a single surgeon's complications rate and experience with the Akademikliniken augmentation mammaplasty method from the beginning of his career. METHODS: A retrospective outcome analysis of all patients (n = 1646) who underwent breast augmentation between 2009 and 2021 performed by a single surgeon was conducted...

BACKGROUND: Oncoplastic breast conservation has been classically divided into volume displacement (VD) or volume replacement (VR) techniques. There have been few descriptions of merging these two approaches. This report describes our experience combining Wise-pattern VD and autologous VR to repair extensive partial mastectomy defects in patients with ptosis. METHODS: A retrospective chart review was performed for patients who underwent combined Wise-pattern VD surgery and autologous VR by the author from June 2017 to June 2023, with at least 6 months follow-up...

There are various types of chin deformities, and the least established surgical method for deformity correction may be reduction for anteroposterior macrogenia. Anteroposterior macrogenia is commonly corrected by either setback genioplasty or burring reduction, but these approaches are less likely to produce aesthetically pleasing results. Both procedures have poor reduction effects because of the low response rate of soft tissues to skeletal alterations. There is a high likelihood of chin ptosis and flattening...

Pseudoarthrosis is a severe complication of spinal fusion surgery with occurrence rates as high as 35%-40%. Current options of revision surgery to correct pseudoarthrosis frequently carry high failure rates and risk of developing junctional kyphosis. Pedicled vascularized bone grafts (VBGs) are an innovative approach to boost spinal fusion rates via improving structural integrity and increasing the delivery of blood to the donor site. This versatile technique can be performed at different spinal levels without additional skin incisions and with minimal added operative time...

BACKGROUND: Sparsity of recipient vessels poses a challenge for microsurgical free flap reconstruction of sternal defects following deep sternal wound infection after cardiac surgery. METHODS: From January 2013, a standardized algorithm for dealing with sparse recipient vessels was strictly followed. In this retrospective study including 75 patients, we compared operative details, surgical complications, and reconstructive outcomes of patients treated according to this algorithm (group A: January 2013-May 2021; n = 46) with a historical control group (group B: January 2000-December 2012, n = 29)...

Ulnar ray deficiency is a rare congenital upper limb defect. We report on a unique case with hand-on-flank deformity on the one side and limb truncation on the contralateral side. The standard of care for the hand-on-flank deformity is to do humerus osteotomy to reposition the hand anteriorly. However, the right limb truncation in our patient made the senior author decide not to do the osteotomy. Final assessment showed that the posterior hand position enabled the patient to reach the ano-genital areas, the pocket, and the mouth...

BACKGROUND: Knowing the questions and concerns that patients have regarding treatment options for lateral epicondylitis may allow for shared-decision making and potentially superior patient outcomes and satisfaction. In the present study, we aimed to further delineate patient preferences with treatment of lateral epicondylitis. METHODS: An online, survey-based, descriptive study was conducted through Amazon Mechanical Turk. Survey participants were presented with a clinical scenario regarding lateral epicondylitis and asked four questions regarding treatment preferences for nonoperative treatment, whether they would consider platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection, and whether they would consider surgical intervention for recalcitrant symptoms...
