The article shortly describes the negative side-effects of electrocoagulation used during surgery and proposes a new modality that allows suction of smoke during electrosurgery that is cheap and easy to construct with items already present on the operating table.
The acute abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS) is most often treated with surgical abdominal decompression. After the acute phase, primary closure of the abdominal wall may not be possible, due to tissue loss and retraction of the abdominal wall and its musculofascial components. This article gives an update of the reconstructive ladder for abdominal wall… (More)
To investigate the safety and efficacy of interpleural analgesia for postoperative pain control in patients having breast reconstruction we did a retrospective audit of 114 women who had had their breasts reconstructed by the same team. A group of 22 women given morphine postoperatively acted as a historical control. Ninety-two women were given continuous… (More)
We describe a novel technique for the sampling of breast implant-associated seroma. Using a blunt-tip lipofilling cannula, we have the freedom of movement to sample all fluid collections and prevent the misfortunes of damaging the implant. Also, we have demonstrated the inability of the Coleman style I lipofilling cannula to perforate a silicone breast… (More)
Many techniques have been described for the correction of prominent ears. We present our experience with a cartilage incision and anterior scoring technique, derived from the original Chongchet technique. Over a 13-year period, the senior author (FEMM) operated on 150 consecutive patients using this technique. A description of the procedure is presented.… (More)
We report a case of a median anterior skull base defect that was reconstructed with a free radial forearm flap. The flap was used intracranially, whereas the vascular anastomosis was made extracranially, with the pedicle running through a burr hole in the skull. This technique was succesful in sealing the skull base from the nasal cavity and preventing… (More)
Ptosis of the earlobe is a common consequence of ageing, defined as an unappealingly large free caudal segment of over 5 mm. It is therefore important to consider reduction as a complement to rhytidectomy in selected patients. Moreover, facelifting operations can result in disproportionate or poorly positioned earlobes. Current earlobe-reducing techniques… (More)

A case of a patient with a recurrent dedifferentiated retroperitoneal liposarcoma with extensive invasion of the thoraco-abdominal wall including the skin, requiring reconstructive surgery after debulking of the tumor is reported.
