The surgical approach of gynecomastia, sexual reassignment surgery in female-to-male transsexuals and the increase of number of obese wishing to turn to plastic surgery led us to deepen the anatomical knowledge of the nipple areola complex (NAC) in men, poorly retailed in the literature. By inspiring us of the methodology of a Japanese study, we studied 50(More)
Axillary hidradenitis suppurativa is a chronic and debilitating disease that primarily affects the axillae, perineum, and inframammary areas. Surgical removal of all the diseased skin constitutes the only efficient treatment. Covering an axillary fossa defect is challenging, due to the range of shoulder movement required. Indeed, shoulder movement may be(More)
Postapplication exposure assessment related to indoor residential application of pesticide products requires consideration of product use information, application methods, chemical-specific deposition, time-dependent availability and transferability of surface residues, reentry time, and temporal location and macro- and microactivity/behavior patterns ((More)
INTRODUCTION Heel coverage requires the surgeon to considerate of multiple parameters: the type of defect, the exposed tissues, the weight-bearing requirements, the donor site morbidity, and the shape of the reconstructed heel allowing at best normal footwear. Although many methods of coverage exist, they are often chosen at the cost of a compromise between(More)
Surgical treatment of complete cutaneous ring finger avulsion is a challenge in hand surgery. When replantation of the avulsed fragment is not technically feasible, the surgeon must consider reconstruction of soft tissue. Many surgical techniques have been described. We report a case of complete avulsion of the cutaneous sheath and nail of the fourth finger(More)
INTRODUCTION, DEFECTS Achilles tendon are common in patients after immobilization, therefore the reconstruction of a ruptured Achilles tendon with defects remains a surgical challenge. The ideal characteristics are a thin layer of skin, a strong tendon component, combined with a reliable blood supply and minimal morbidity at the donor site. We present a(More)
Although many options are available for the management of perineal wounds after abdominoperineal resection, ranging from direct closure to flap reconstruction, treatment remains challenging. A better understanding of the aims, drawbacks and progress in perineal wound management after abdominoperineal rectal resection can help the surgeon make better choices(More)
The SCIP flap based on a superficial circumflex iliac perforator artery (SCIA) was described for the first time by Koshima in 2004 as a large and thin groin flap, with a low morbidity. The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the benefits of SCIP flap to cover cutaneous defects. We present a retrospective study from January 2007 to August 2016. Twelve(More)
