Experimental study of pedicled subcostal artery perforator (SCAP) flap: a new application in breast reconstruction?
Latissimus dorsi flap is the gold standard for pedicled breast reconstruction but is limited by donor site scarring that is difficult to conceal, and a high rate of post-operative seroma. We investigated the anatomic characteristics and feasibility of using a subcostal artery perforator (SCAP) flap, taken from the flank area, and vascularised via a perforator artery through a subcostal pedicle, for a breast reconstruction.

Dorsal Block Splinting of Volar Plate Injuries at Neutral Position
Purpose Volar plate injuries of the proximal interphalangeal joint (PIPJ) of a finger are common, often occurring in sporting or workplace incidents. Treatment of a stable dorsal dislocation entails a conservative approach, directed at preventing hyperextension and allowing the ligament to heal in position that does not negatively impact on healing. Current treatment regimens include dorsal block splinting (DBS) in 30° of flexion, which maintains the PIPJ in flexion in order to prevent any strain...

Flexor Tendon Reconstruction: Active Range of Motion After the First Stage of Silicone Rod Insertion
Purpose In the first stage of flexor tendon reconstruction, a silicon rod is fixed distally to the remnant of the flexor tendon at the distal phalanx. The proximal end of the rod is left free (unsutured) in the distal forearm. Hence, the rod insertion is not expected to result in any active flexion of the finger. The author reports on a case series in which adhesions have occurred between the rod and the adjacent flexor tendons in the distal forearm. Methods A retrospective study of 110 patients...

Autologous Breast Reconstruction With a Delay Procedure of the Deep Inferior Epigastric Artery Perforator Flap Because of Venous Congestion of the Flap on Pedicle: A Case Series
The deep inferior epigastric artery perforator (DIEP) flap is one of the most used free flaps for the reconstruction of the breast after a mastectomy. Despite careful selection of the patients and preoperative imaging, difficulties in vascularization of the flap can occur in some cases. Although multiple vascular connections (bipedicled, turbocharged, or stacked) can be made in selected cases, there can still be venous congestion before the flap is transferred. Between 2016 and 2018, 4 cases in...
