The authors report the clinical history of a patient having presented a cutaneous mucormycosis at the waning of a traumatic dilapidation post of the left lower limb. Mucormycosis is an opportunistic fungal infection due to fungi of the group of mucorales present in the environment. There are various clinical forms of the disease; it occurs generally in a(More)
Abdominoperineal resection is the one of the oldest surgical procedures for rectal cancer. Outcome after abdominoperineal resection for rectal carcinoma is not as good as anterior resection as the risk of local recurrence is higher and survival is poorer. During abdominoperineal resection, the rate of rectal perforation is high and the circumferential(More)
Over the past few decades, methodological progress and better anatomical knowledge have reduced the morbidity of reconstructive surgery. Muscle-sparing flaps and perforator flaps provide the surgeon with additional options for reconstruction. Based on a review of the local flaps used for perineal reconstruction, this article describes these new solutions(More)
OBJECTIVES To study the place of the total thyroïdectomy compared to the sub-total thyroidectomy and the lobectomy in benign nodular thyroid pathology, about complications and prevention of the recurrence. PATIENTS AND METHODS The evolution of the number and the type of thyroïdectomy among the total thyroidectomy, subtotal thyroidectomy and the lobectomy(More)
In our modern health system, the improvement of the medical care cannot come along with an increase of expenses. In this purpose, we tried to bring to light the medical and economic, direct and indirect, benefits which exist with the association of an artificial dermis, Integra, and negative pressure therapy as the vacuum assisted closure (VAC) for wound(More)
BACKGROUND The groin flap, based on the superficial circumflex iliac artery, was the first successful free flap. However, its popularity was lost essentially due to variable arterial anatomy. Clinical applications of perforator flap based on superficial circumflex iliac artery suggest that a dominant perforator based on his deep branch is enough to supply a(More)
The improvement of patient carcinological status by an abdominoperineal resection by extended posterior perineal approach in a prone position requires the plastic surgeon to consider other reconstructive options. We present an original double L-shaped free-style propeller flap used to reconstruct the vagina and the perineum of a 57-year-old patient after(More)
BACKGROUND Pectus excavatum is a common congenital deformity involving the anterior thoracic wall. It can be treated with several surgical approaches. MATERIAL AND METHODS To our best of knowledge, this is the first case of pectus excavatum repair via a 2-stage double thoracodorsal artery perforator flap procedure in a 37-year-old patient. RESULTS We(More)
INTRODUCTION Breast plastic surgery still remains subjective with no objective measurement tool to evaluate and to predict our results. In this aim, we did an evaluation of a new 3D surface measurement tool using the structured projected light technology (Inspeck) in breast surgery. MATERIAL AND METHOD We evaluated the different measurement tools(More)
We present an original case of reconstruction of the abdominal wall after full-thickness parietal resection using an anterolateral thigh flap harvested with its aponeurosis; we describe the advantages of this technique which has seldom been used for this indication. A 49-year-old male presented with a recurrent dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans involving the(More)
