Nov 24th, 2022 - Reconstruction of the thumb is among the most complex challenges faced by hand surgeons. Meaningful functional recovery of the thumb is dependent mainly on thumb opposition and palmar abduction. Free functional muscle transfer provides neurotized, robust soft tissue coverage that can achieve dynamic reconstruction of thenar musculature in a single stage.We present a case of a free neurotized se...

Nov 24th, 2022 - Autologous costal cartilage is used extensively in reconstructive surgery because of its stability, durability, and biocompatibility. The current preoperative evaluation of costal cartilage often only consists of a physical examination. Several studies have highlighted the benefits of preoperative imaging as a tool to ensure optimal graft harvest. This systematic review aims to synthesize the c...

Nov 20th, 2022 - Hamstring tendons are a popular choice for autografts in anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. However, there is increasing evidence that hamstring tendon autografts carry a high risk of revision and residual instability in young patients. To elucidate the reasons for the inferior outcome of the reconstructed ACL with hamstring tendon autografts in young patients, we investigated the...

Nov 18th, 2022 - Refined buttock augmentation with fat grafting in Chinese women during the past decade is introduced. The ideal buttock contouring outcome and figure silhouette come from the proper individualized plan and meticulous maneuvers through fat grafting to the buttocks combined with liposuction procedures on the surrounding areas of the buttocks as well as on the other body parts. The fat grafts are ...

Nov 18th, 2022 - Autologous fat grafting and facial liposuction are widely used to reshape facial contours. But up to now, there is no surgical design idea for Asian women. The article aimed to provide a facial esthetic design to guide the combined operation of facial liposuction and fat grafting for Asians, that is, the "three-line and nine-point" design method. In retrospective reviews, the surgical results o...

Nov 18th, 2022 - The subdorsal cantilever graft (SDCG) is a costal cartilage graft that is positioned below the nasal dorsum to control the position of the nasal bones and middle nasal vault. SDCG type A is used to raise the middle nasal vault and caudal nasal bones to correct the saddle nose deformity. SDCG type B can be used to raise the entire dorsum of the nose (radix, bony vault, and middle vault) in the e...

Nov 17th, 2022 - There is a lack of scientific evidence concerning the best timing of soft tissue management around implants, as well as a divergence of topics concerning optimal procedures. The objective of this study is to evaluate the gain in buccal contour and soft tissue stability after a surgical technique combining nonsubmerged implant placement with submarginal connective tissue graft (CTG) and coronall...

Nov 4th, 2022 - Approximately 95% of patients of any age undergoing contemporary, coronary bypass surgery will receive at least 1 saphenous vein graft (SVG). It is recognized that SVG will develop progressive and accelerated atherosclerosis, resulting in a stenosis, and in occlusion that occurs in 50% by 10 years postoperatively. For arterial conduits, there is little evidence of progressive failure as for SVG...

Oct 29th, 2022 - Different surgical techniques have been proposed to reconstruct combined anterior cruciate (ACL) and lateral collateral ligaments (LCL). Although these surgical techniques are reliable and reproducible, the number of autologous grafts needed for the reconstruction could be a limiting factor, especially when patients present with multi-ligament knee injuries and the posterior cruciate ligament i...

Oct 29th, 2022 - There is the most common method for arthroscopic anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction by using the semitendinosus and gracilis tendons and single-tunnel technique. However, anatomic translocation of hamstring tendon attachment is very rare. A 45-year-old male who need to receive right knee ACL reconstruction due to sprain injury while playing table tennis was found to have a transloc...

Oct 29th, 2022 - The addition of grafting material to the tunnel procedure has yielded more stable outcomes than the tunnel procedure alone, but currently there is no available evidence about the most effective grafting material. This study compared two grafting materials-subepithelial connective tissue graft (SCTG) and acellular dermal matrix (ADM)-with the modified coronally advanced tunnel technique (MCAT) i...

Oct 29th, 2022 - This case report proposes a unique approach for managing Cairo gingival recession types 1 and 2 (RT1 and RT2, respectively) in the mandibular anterior region, where anatomical features such as a high frenal attachment or a shallow vestibule preclude the use of a coronally advanced flap. Three systemically healthy patients presenting with Cairo RT1 and RT2 gingival recessions were included. The ...

Oct 29th, 2022 - Regenerative and reconstructive periodontal plastic surgery are important options for treating marginal tissue recession and can be indicated for root coverage or periodontal procedures prior to implant placement. Among the available procedures, periodontal flaps with subepithelial connective tissue graft (CTG) is the most common treatment option to achieve proper tissue manipulation. The prese...

Oct 28th, 2022 - Background: Kawasaki disease (KD) is a self-limited vasculitis that mainly affects infants and preschool-age children, characterized by coronary aneurysms and/or stenoses that may lead to the occurrence of ischemia, heart attack, and sudden death. This study aimed to evaluate the clinical and surgical results of pediatric patients with KD and cardiac sequelae who underwent coronary artery bypas...

Oct 28th, 2022 - Islet transplantation from organ donors can considerably improve glucose homeostasis and well-being in individuals with type 1 diabetes, where the beta cells are destroyed by the autoimmune attack, but there are insufficient donor islets to make this a widespread therapy. Strategies are therefore being developed to generate unlimited amounts of insulin-producing beta cells from pluripotent stem...

Oct 26th, 2022 - Ovarian cryopreservation and transplantation is a fertility preservation option, but a majority of follicles were lost due to grafting process. Accelerated activation of primordial follicle and follicle apoptosis are responsible for follicle depletion following grafting. Since apoptosis and autophagy share common upstream signals, and cell switches between apoptosis and autophagy, the aim of th...

Oct 25th, 2022 - The pedicled lower trapezius myocutaneous flap is generally transferred to the recipient site through a subcutaneous tunnel, and a portion of the flap buried in the tunnel needs to be de-epithelialized. Thus, considerable amount of normal skin is sacrificed, and the redundant tissue buried in the tunnel can cause bulging deformity. We believe that transferring the lower trapezius myocutaneous f...

Oct 25th, 2022 - Facial palsy may have deleterious effects for pediatric patients. The most common reconstruction is 2-stage free gracilis muscle transfer (FGMT) after cross-face nerve graft (CFNG). This requires a prolonged period from time of surgery to smile. New techniques using both a CFNG and motor nerve to masseter (MNM) as dual power sources in a single-stage surgery have been described in adults. Here,...
