Reduction of skin closure time without loss of healing quality: a multicenter prospective study in 100 patients comparing the use of Insorb absorbable staples with absorbable thread for dermal suture.

Feb, 2013

The authors report the results of a multicenter prospective study evaluating a novel technology: dermal suture using absorbable staples composed of polylactic and polyglycolic acids. From January to June 2009, 59 dermal sutures were performed with Insorb absorbable staples and 41 with absorbable thread. All patients in the study underwent abdominal dermolipectomy (N = 65) or surgery for breast hypertrophy (N = 35). The purpose of the study was to compare the closure time and healing quality obtained with the 2 methods. Ninety-five patients were reexamined by the surgeon after 1 year of follow-up to assess scar width, suppleness, inflammation, and hypertrophy. The overall results were good and quite similar for the 2 groups. Thus, the use of Insorb staples reduced closure time while ensuring good healing quality. read more

[Breast reconstruction with TRAM flap after selective embolization of the deep inferior epigastric artery (series of 69 patients)].

Dec, 2011

Vascular complications of the unipedicled TRAM flap pointed out the need for solutions to decrease such occurrences. The flap surgical delay before transfer has been advocated to improve the blood supply but, at the same time, it increases the risk of wound infection at the donor site and imposes a general anesthesia. The DIEP and the free TRAM flap are more complex procedures and need heavy structural resources. Preferential use of the ipsilateral muscular pedicle suggests a lower partial flap necrosis rate. Selective embolization of the deep inferior epigastric arteries prior to surgery realizes an alternative delay and brings a decrease in the vascular complication rate as shown in a study of 40 patients by Scheufler in 2000. We present a series of 69 patients who were reconstructed by means of a delayed pedicled TRAM flap with selective embolization and a predominant use of the ispsilateral pedicle. Sonographic studies performed in 48 patients prior to surgery showed no significative difference in the diameter of the superior epigastic arteries, with or without previous radiotherapy. The mean interval between embolization and surgery was 30 days; the embolization was performed bilateraly in five patients (4 %), and unilaterally in 64 patients (96 %). The mean age of patients was 54 years, radiotherapy was applied in 43 patients (62 %), smoking patients: 11 (16 %), obesity: five (7 %). The ispsilateral pedicled was used in 67 patients (97 %), controlateral pedicle in two patients (3 %). Postoperative flap complications were comprised of partial flap necrosis in two cases (2,9 %), fat necrosis in six cases (8,7 %), impaired wound healing in three cases (4,3 %), abdominal wall weakness in two cases (2,9 %). We compared the present study of ispsilateral delayed pedicled flap to a study from the same authors concerning controlateral pedicled flaps without delay. It has been demonstrated that the complications rate of partial necrosis was divided by four in the first study compared to the second. The preoperative selective embolization of the deep inferior epigastric artery in association with the use of ipsilateral pedicule in TRAM flap decrease the complications rate significatively compared to the controlateral pedicled flap in TRAM flaps. read more
