BACKGROUND Fingertip injuries are the most common hand injuries presenting for acute care. Treatment algorithms have been described based on defect size, bone exposure, and injury geometry. The authors hypothesized that despite accepted algorithms, many fingertip injuries can be treated conservatively. METHODS A prospectively collected retrospective(More)
BACKGROUND The tear trough and the lid/cheek junction become more visible with age. These landmarks are adjacent, forming in some patients a continuous indentation or groove below the infraorbital rim. Numerous, often conflicting procedures have been described to improve the appearance of the region. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the anatomy(More)
Great variability exists in microsurgical postoperative care in the United States. Lack of standardized postoperative monitoring protocols and appropriate training of monitoring personnel leads to inefficiency and increased cost of providing microsurgical postoperative care. A 45-question survey was sent to all plastic surgery and plastic surgery-based(More)
BACKGROUND The senior author routinely performs primary nasal reconstruction with every cleft lip repair. This addresses the nasal tip asymmetry and simplifies the definitive secondary rhinoplasty in adolescence. METHODS A retrospective chart review was completed of all unilateral cleft secondary rhinoplasties performed by the senior author. The(More)
BACKGROUND Management of severe traumatic lower extremity injuries remains a considerable challenge. Free tissue transfer is now a standard part of reconstruction for Gustilo IIIB and IIIC injuries. There is limited information on arterial injury patterns in this population. We undertook a review of our experience to gain insight on vascular injury patterns(More)
BACKGROUND The free fibula flap is the standard of care in mandibular reconstruction; however, procedural nuances continue to optimize results. More accurate and efficient osteotomies for graft insetting can be envisioned, which address the difficulty in obtaining a perfect match between the cut ends of the fibula and the mandible and the subsequent giving(More)
AlloDerm has been used as a tissue supplement in conjunction with the pectoralis major muscle to provide full coverage over an implant in breast reconstruction. While this method of reconstruction has shown promising results there is little known on the relationship of AlloDerm size and potential immediate expansion volume. A retrospective chart review was(More)
BACKGROUND The foot and ankle area has a tenuous blood supply that can easily be damaged with trauma or open exposures. The navicular and talus are susceptible to avascular necrosis, making arthrodesis difficult. In addition, in this region, large bone gaps occur as a result of avascular necrosis, trauma, or infection. Often, vascularized bone flaps are(More)
Perioperative infection is the most common and dreaded complication associated with tissue expander (TE) breast reconstruction. Historically, the expansion period was thought to be the time of greatest hazard to the implant. However, recent institutional observations suggest infectious complications occur prior to expansion. This investigation, therefore,(More)
BACKGROUND Dupuytren's disease is a common benign fibroproliferative disorder of the hand. Epidemiologic studies have reported significant variation in disease prevalence among races, focusing primarily on those of northern European descent. In contrast, Dupuytren's disease in the Hispanic population has received little attention. Thus, in this study, the(More)
