Tissue expansion for correction of scars due to burn and other causes: A retrospective comparative study of various complications
Conclusion: This set of data suggests that the burn scar patient is at no greater risk to suffer complications from tissue expansion. Other factors like age, TBSA and anatomical site have far more influence on the expander complication rate than the initial indication for tissue expansion.

Effects of keratinocyte growth factor on skin epithelial differentiation of human amnion epithelial cells
Abstract: The aim of the present study was to determine the effects of KGF on the differentiation of cultured human amnion epithelial cells (HAECs) towards skin keratinocyte. HAECs at passage 1 were cultured in medium HAM's F12: Dulbecco's Modified Eagles Medium (1:1) supplemented with different concentrations of KGF (0, 5, 10, 20, 30 and 50ng/ml KGF). Dose–response of KGF on HAECs was determined by morphological assessment; growth kinetic evaluation; immunocytochemical analysis; stemness and epithelial gene expression quantification with two step real time RT-PCR. KGF promotes the proliferation of HAECs with maximal eff...

Recycle of temporal muscle in combination with free muscle transfer in the treatment of facial paralysis
Summary: We experienced three patients with long-standing unilateral complete facial paralysis who previously underwent temporalis muscle transfer to the cheek for smile reconstruction. All patients complained of insufficient and uncomfortable buccal motion synchronised with masticatory movements and incomplete eyelid closure with ptotic eyebrow.To attain a near-natural smile and reliable eyelid closure, temporalis muscle was displaced from the cheek to the eyelid, and a neurovascular free latissimus dorsi muscle was transferred for the replacement of cheek motion. As a result, cheek motion synchronised with the contralate...

[News] Cosmetic implants could delay breast cancer diagnosis
Cosmetic breast implants are radio-opaque, which makes the mammograms of women with implants difficult to read; even with specialised radiographic techniques, about a third of the breast is not adequately visible. Therefore, although the available evidence does not suggest that cosmetic implants themselves increase the risk of breast cancer, concerns remain that they might cause a delay in diagnosis. It is also unclear whether women who have undergone cosmetic breast augmentation—more than 300 000 in the USA alone in 2011—are more likely to die from breast cancer than are women diagnosed with the disease who have not...

A psychological perspective on male rejuvenation
Male rejuvenation, defined as a process in men to both limit the impact of aging on body image and experience greater virility, is growing among middle-aged and older men. While rejuvenation was primarily in the domain of the younger male athlete with the use of performance enhancing hormones or in the aging woman through the use of cosmetic surgery, it is now more common among middle-aged and older men. Male rejuvenation can occur both through aesthetic surgical means and hormonal manipulation through anabolic steroid use. In this article, the authors review the psychological issues and perceptions surrounding male aesthe...

Fire Risk During Ophthalmic Plastic Surgery
A high oxygen concentration was reported as the major risk factor behind 74% of all surgical fires. Given that surgical fires are a dreaded complication of combining electrocautery and oxygen use, minimizing increases in oxygen concentration above atmospheric levels should be the goal of not just anesthesia staff, but also surgeons. With 28% of surgical fires occurring on the face, reducing this risk factor is of particular interest to the ophthalmic surgeon. (Source: Ophthalmology)

(PG) are blood‐derived biomaterials that are generally obtained through the activation of a platelet‐rich plasma or a platelet concentrate by thrombin or calcium chloride, resulting in the simultaneous conversion of fibrinogen into a fibrin gel and in the generation of a platelet releasate rich in a physiological cocktail of growth factors. To reinforce the physical strength of the fibrin network, a fibrinogen‐rich fraction – generally cryoprecipitate – can be added to the platelet fraction prior to activation, resulting in the generation of platelet fibrin glue (PFG). PG and PFG, prepared from single donations,...

Atypical fibroxanthoma of the medial canthus: a rare presentation.
Conclusion: This case emphasises the importance of a diagnostic biopsy. A panel of immunohistochemical markers is essential to make the correct diagnosis of AFX and distinguish it from malignant fibrohistiocytoma and non-keratin expressing squamous cell carcinoma. It usually follows a benign course, but can occasionally demonstrate aggressive local recurrence as well as distant metastasis. Invasion beyond the dermis and a rapid rate of recurrence are suggestive of a more aggressive clinical course. Paraffin fixed sections are preferred over frozen section techniques for this tumour. Medial canthal AFX has not been reported...

[Financial rating optimization in pressure ulcers management: Yes, but at what price?].
Abstract The surgical management of pressure ulcers remains very expensive even if preventive measures and improved care pathways allowed to reduce spending in this domain in recent years. Since 2004, the funding of French hospitals by "fee-for-service" and the needs of saving health spending necessarily compels us to interest ourselves in these purely economic considerations and sometimes modify our requirements for hospital stay to optimize a "patient' valorisation group". In the future, this may lead the surgeon to bias the real needs of the patient for the benefit of hospital establishment. Through a medico-eco...

[Interventional angioradiology as a solution for microsurgical flap failure].
We present two case reports describing a novel method of free flap salvage using angioradiological techniques. Our first case shows the potential utility of in situ thrombolysis, our second case describes the first use of stents within a microsurgical anastomosis. In boths cases, the flap would have been lost immediately, because flap revisions failed. Thus, before abandoning on a flap, one could perform a simple angiography to evaluate further angioradiological salvage possibilities and hereby contribute to improve long term microsurgical failure rate.

Facial artery myomucosal free flap for cheek mucosa reconstruction: A case report
In this report, a case of a 76‐year‐old man with SCC of the left cheek mucosa and extending to the posterolateral superior alveolar ridge is presented. The patient underwent radical excision of the tumor, omolateral modified radical neck dissection (MRND‐III), and contralateral selective neck dissection (levels I–III). Reconstruction was performed with a facial artery myomucosal free flap. The flap was transplanted successfully, and there were no donor or recipient site complications. This technique is a good reconstructive option because of its adherence to the plastic surgery principle of “replacing like with l...

Accurately costing unilateral delayed DIEP flap breast reconstruction
Conclusions: This study highlights that the costs of this procedure have been estimated accurately by the financial department and that the current HRG code provides adequate reimbursement. The new HRG code for 2012–13, HRG JA14z, provides significantly less reimbursement at £7012 and measures need to be taken to address this. This study has identified that personnel costs are the greatest contributor to overall cost and allowed us to recognise and implement changes to improve efficiency.

Towards a clean slit: how medicine and notions of normality are shaping female genital aesthetics.
Abstract In the West, a specific ideal has emerged for female genitalia. The ideal is one of absence, a clean slit that can be attained through the removal of pubic hair and, increasingly, through female genital cosmetic surgery. This ideal is largely created in the media, which generates contradictory messages for women. The popular press, backed by medical opinion, explicitly acknowledges that a wide range of variation is normal - female genitals vary in appearance 'about as much as snowflakes' - but by showing only altered minimalist clean slits, it carries an implicit message that women should be worried if the...

Incorporation of Fresh Tissue Surgical Simulation into Plastic Surgery Education: Maximizing Extraclinical Surgical Experience
Background: As interest in surgical simulation grows, plastic surgical educators are pressed to provide realistic surgical experience outside of the operating suite. Simulation models of plastic surgery procedures have been developed, but they are incomparable to the dissection of fresh tissue. We evolved a fresh tissue dissection (FTD) and simulation program with emphasis on surgical technique and simulation of clinical surgery. We hypothesized that resident confidence could be improved by adding FTD to our resident curriculum.Methods: Over a 5-year period, FTD was incorporated into the curriculum. Participants included c...
