Microsurgery is a complex subspecialty requiring fine manual dexterity and a thorough understanding of microsurgical techniques, requiring years of training to reach proficiency. On a global scale, trainees may not have access to a longitudinal microsurgery curriculum and instead attend brief courses to learn microsurgical techniques, limiting their ability to practice the nuances of microsurgery. There remains a gap in global microsurgical education for trainees to have consistent educational exposure. This article presents a novel and easy to use software-based microsurgical system for virtual microsurgical teaching...

Reducing morbidity has been the goal of many reconstructive microsurgery efforts. Several techniques have been described for deep inferior epigastric perforator flap breast reconstruction to minimize abdominal donor-site morbidity. Although these techniques have certain tradeoffs, we designed a minimally invasive robot-assisted perforator-to-perforator approach to achieve minimal donor- and recipient-site morbidity. Simultaneous identification of the deep inferior epigastric artery (DIEA) and internal mammary artery (IMA) perforator was performed, followed by a small fascial incision around the dominant DIEA perforator...

BACKGROUND: Indocyanine green lymphography (ICGL) generally has a nonlinear pattern in advanced-stage lymphedema. Despite the lack of a linear pattern ICGL, lymphatic vessels have been discovered in several studies. The purpose of this work was to establish lymphatic mapping utilizing information from the contralateral limb and to illustrate the symmetry of lymphatic systems. METHODS: Data were retrospectively collected from 81 patients who underwent lymphaticovenular anastomosis (LVA) using the contralateral mapping technique during 2018 to 2022...

BACKGROUND: Gender-affirming breast augmentation comprises an increasing portion of breast augmentations performed by plastic surgeons. Satisfaction and breast implant illness (BII) symptoms in this population have not been well studied. This study aimed to evaluate satisfaction and BII symptoms in transwomen who received nontextured implants as part of their breast reconstruction. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective review of transwomen who underwent breast augmentation for gender-affirming surgery...

BACKGROUND: Augmentation and reshaping of body volume, particularly in the gluteal area, presents a significant challenge in aesthetic surgery. Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers have emerged as an effective and safe tool for such indications, but literature examining nonsurgical gluteal reshaping with HA remains limited. This study aims to evaluate the long-term safety of using recommended volumes of HA body fillers for nonsurgical gluteal augmentation. METHODS: A retrospective, observational study was carried out across multiple centers in Italy and the United Arab Emirates...

#26
JOURNAL ARTICLE
Leandra Doan, Andre-Philippe Sam, Wai-Yee Li
BACKGROUND: The pedicled latissimus dorsi myocutaneous flap (LDMCF) in autologous breast reconstruction has been superseded by abdominal free tissue transfer. Common complaints of the LDMCF include the asymmetric back scar, need for prosthesis, and high seroma rates. We believe that the LDMCF remains versatile, with distinct advantages over other autologous options: the flap can be harvested unilaterally or bilaterally, not 'burning any bridges' for future reconstruction in unilateral breast reconstruction; the recovery is relatively easy, without complications such as risk of long-term abdominal wall weakness; and the aesthetic results are comparable, if not superior, leading to a more "youthful" result...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Andrii Zhygulin, Artem Fedosov
BACKGROUND: Tumors in the central part of the breast are usually considered more aggressive and technically difficult, which limits breast conservation. The definition of central tumors from a surgical point of view, classification of the techniques for partial breast reconstruction, and conceptual algorithm of choice based on tumor and breast characteristics are proposed, along with the estimation of surgical and oncological safety. METHODS: This is a retrospective analysis of the single-institution experience, with a focus on the decision-making process for choosing the oncoplastic breast-conserving surgery technique...

Lipofilling has emerged as an effective technique in breast reconstruction for enhancing aesthetic outcomes and addressing residual deformities. Traditionally, fat grafting has been performed as a secondary step in implant-based breast reconstruction during the replacement of the expander with a breast implant or as a revisional procedure. Our study investigates the technical feasibility and presents preliminary results of a new promising technique for delivering fat grafting in a three-dimensional (3D) shape, directly during mastectomy with immediate breast reconstruction or in delayed breast reconstructive procedures...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Irvin M Wiesman, Daniel A Rabin
We present a novel percutaneous areola reduction technique that, to our knowledge, has never been used or published in the past. This technique is a useful solution to the downsides of the current most commonly used technique for areola reductions that uses a circumareolar incision. Our current technique utilizes a percutaneous approach, which is a minimally invasive procedure, and produces a virtually scarless result.

This report describes a recurrent sclerodermiform basal cell epithelioma of the malar region next to the inferior eyelid in a 57-year-old woman. Three interventions were necessary to obtain a clear margin of resection. The area of resection was closed with a local cutaneous flap. We report a rare basal cell carcinoma subtype underestimated in its aggressiveness with often inadequate medical and surgical management. This tumor, generally localized in the face, often requires aggressive surgery, and aesthetic results can be poor...

BACKGROUND: Extracellular vesicles, or microvesicles, are a large family of membrane-bound fluid-filled sacs that cells release into the extracellular environment. Extracellular microvesicles (EMVs) are essential for cell-to-cell communications that promote wound healing. We hypothesize a correlation between the concentration of EMVs in wound fluid and the percentage of wound healing in treated chronic, nonhealing, wounds. A prospective, multicenter, randomized, single-blind clinical trial was conducted to evaluate EMV concentration in relation to wound healing percentages...

This case report presents a rare complication after percutaneous needle fasciotomy for Dupuytren contracture: the development of epidermoid cysts. A 60-year-old man who had previously undergone a needle fasciotomy required a subsequent limited fasciectomy due to disease progression. Unexpectedly, epidermoid cysts were discovered during the procedure. The successful removal of the cysts, together with the removal of the contracture cord, resulted in a good functional outcome. The conducted literature review identified four case reports of epidermoid or dermoid cysts after treatment for Dupuytren contracture...

BACKGROUND: Minor procedures in the emergency department (ED) can be distressing for patients. The emergence of virtual reality (VR) offers a promising new tool by immersing patients in an engaging three-dimensional world. Prior studies have shown VR's effectiveness during procedures in reducing pain, anxiety, and procedure duration but have not assessed its efficacy in the ED. This study aims to evaluate the efficacy of VR in managing pain and anxiety during ED minor hand procedures...

BACKGROUND: Modern surgical therapy of chronic headaches/migraines is essentially based on the release/neurolysis of extracranial nerves, which, when compressed or inflamed, act as trigger points and, as such, trigger headache attacks. The aim of this article was to describe a novel maneuver we use as an aid in the preoperative planning of occipital trigger sites. METHODS: In the period of January 2021-September 2023, we operated on 32 patients (11 men, 21 women, age range: 26-68 years), who underwent migraine surgery for occipital trigger point release...

BACKGROUND: We encountered a case of infected soft tissue defect of the fingertip treated using negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT). The development of NPWT was started in the early 1990s, and it is a relatively new treatment method included in insurance coverage in Japan in 2010. NPWT is used for intractable wounds; some reports have examined its use on infected wounds. However, to the best of our knowledge, no study has examined its use on infected fingertip wounds. METHODS: A patient with an infected soft tissue defect in the fingertip whose epithelialization period was prolonged despite continued antibiotic therapy was treated using NPWT in combination...

Despite medical advances, degloving injury remains one of the most difficult traumatic injuries to treat. The conventional method for treating degloving injury of the hand is reconstruction with a groin flap. However, few reports have described the mid- or long-term functional and aesthetic outcomes after a hand reconstruction with a groin flap. This case report describes a 68-year-old woman with no specific medical history who presented with a severe degloving injury of the right hand, caused by a roller machine...
