Background and Significance: Apert syndrome is a congenital disorder of patients who typically present with bilateral coronal craniosynostosis and varying degrees of complex syndactyly of the hands and feet, among other features. We describe a unique presentation of a rare Apert-like patient with unilateral coronal craniosynostosis and complex syndactyly of the hands and feet. Case Report: A 2-year-old male patient presented to the craniofacial clinic with his mother due to a concerning head shape...

Objective: Perforator flaps are one possible surgical treatment for burn scar contractures; however, a review of evidence on this topic is lacking. Methods: MEDLINE was searched for articles related to perforator flaps for burn contractures. Following title and abstract screen, full texts were searched to identify articles describing perforator flaps for burn scar joint contractures. Data were extracted and summarized descriptively. Only articles that contained ≥10 patients with burn scar contracture were considered...

Haley F M Augustine, Jiayi Hu, Zainab Najarali, Matthew McRae
Background: The National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (NSQIP) is a robust, high-quality surgical outcomes database that measures risk-adjusted 30-day outcomes of surgical interventions. The purpose of this scoping review is to describe how the NSQIP is being used in plastic surgery research. Methods: A comprehensive electronic literature search was completed in PubMed, Embase, MEDLINE, and CINAHL. Two reviewers independently reviewed articles to determine their relevance using predefined inclusion criteria...

In many cultures, the female breast is a potent symbol of beauty, motherhood, and vitality. When such breasts become diseased and a woman is faced with a mastectomy, multiple competing discourses converge to complicate the decision for or against breast reconstruction. This process can be fraught with tension and ambivalence. Women, along with surgeons working in the field of breast reconstruction, should be aware of the cultural history that shapes the understanding of breasts. When a woman considers her options, she is influenced by the personal and the evolving social and cultural discourse...

Background: In extensive burn injuries with lack of donor sites for skin grafting, the Meek technique of skin expansion can be an efficient and effective method in covering extensive wounds. The aim of this retrospective study was to present our experience with the Meek technique of grafting. Methods: We performed a retrospective analysis of patients from our burn center who underwent Meek grafting between 2012 and 2016. Demographics, burn details, clinical course, operative management, and outcomes were collected and analyzed from patient records and operative notes...

Objective: To assess whether implementing a breast reconstruction database would be feasible in terms of time commitment, cost, and overall benefits in a tertiary-care hospital. Methods: A survey was sent to 40 Canadian plastic surgeons who have a practice focused on breast reconstruction. The survey assessed demographics, practice characteristics, database use, and opinions on database construction. Univariate descriptive analyses were performed on all variables...

Tension of the wound edges should be overcome with precise surgical planning, which is recognized as one of the major contributors to local complications by compromising circulation of the wound edges. In this article, it was aimed to present the clinical results of a surgical technique, in which the plastic straps and Kirschner wires are used for delayed primary closure of traumatic tension wounds. Depending on the assessment of the wound localization, wound dimension, and mobility of adjacent soft tissue, the technique was performed in 9 patients with a male to female ratio of 8:1...

Purpose: Multiple treatments for dorsal wrist ganglia (DWG) exist but have high recurrence rates. We investigated whether aspiration followed by injection of Tisseel is more effective at reducing the DWG recurrence rate than aspiration alone. Methods: Adults with untreated DWG were randomly assigned to aspiration alone (A) or aspiration followed by Tisseel injection (AT). Patients were measured at baseline, 1, 6, and 12 months. Primary outcome was the rate of recurrence...

Introduction: Children with Pierre Robin sequence (PRS) have a complex clinical presentation and requires many health-care providers. Thus, multiple clinical pathways have been proposed on how to manage this population, with some opting for conservative measures while others opting for a surgical approach. However, no consensus has been reached on the most appropriate protocol. Objective: To present the treatment protocol for PRS at the Hospital for Sick Children...

Purpose: The aim of this study was to compare the diagnostic performance (accuracy, sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, and negative predictive value) of plain film (PF), ultrasonography (USG), and computed tomography (CT) in diagnosing nasal bone fractures (NBFs). Methods: In a search of PubMed and Scopus, "nasal bone fracture" AND "X-ray OR CT OR USG OR MRI" were searched. Among the 369 titles from PubMed and 379 titles from Scopus, 257 duplicate titles were excluded and 491 titles were reviewed...

REVIEW
Kun Hwang, Ji Soo Son, Woo Kyung Ryu
Purpose: The aim of this study was to compare the complications of flap surgery in non-smokers and smokers and to determine how the incidence of complications was affected by the abstinence period from smoking before and after flap surgery. Methods: In PubMed and Scopus, terms "smoking" and "flap survival" were used, which resulted in 113 papers and 65 papers, respectively. After excluding 6 duplicate titles, 172 titles were reviewed. Among them, 45 abstracts were excluded, 20 full papers were reviewed, and finally 15 papers were analyzed...
