Robbins described the inferior pedicle breast reduction in 1977. Since this time it has proved to be a safe and reliable technique. Favourable results have been reported with regard to breast feeding and nipple sensation. A common criticism of the technique is its tendency to inferior descent (pseudoptosis or bottoming out). This can leave a significantly(More)
Microsurgical free tissue transfer is a valuable technique for the reconstruction of soft-tissue defects around the knee, and the medial sural artery (MSA) is an ideal recipient vessel for anastomosis. Previously, the vessel has been described as the dominant supply to the medial gastrocnemius, but no research has addressed the subsequent effect to the(More)
BACKGROUND In-transit metastasis from cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is an uncommon form of metastasis through lymphatics and occurs more commonly in immunosuppressed patients. OBJECTIVE To identify cases of in-transit SCC and determine patient characteristics, tumor features, management, and prognosis. METHODS AND MATERIALS A multicenter case(More)
We have developed a biodegradable temporizing matrix (BTM) capable of supporting secondary split-skin graft-take in animal studies. We report its first long-term implantation and use as a dermal scaffold in humans. This preliminary study assesses its ability to integrate, its ease of delamination, its ability to sustain split-skin graft in complex wounds,(More)
INTRODUCTION We recently published a 10-patient case series where free flap donor site reconstruction was performed as a 2-stage procedure using an integrating biodegradable polyurethane matrix (to form a neodermis), followed by definitive closure with an autologous split-skin graft. Two issues were revealed by this pilot study that led to further(More)
OBJECTIVES To share our experience of an extensive calvarial reconstruction in a severely burn-injured, elderly patient in a 2-stage procedure utilizing a novel biodegradable temporizing matrix (NovoSorb BTM), followed by autograft. MATERIALS AND METHODS A 66-year-old patient with 75% full-thickness burns, including 7% total body surface area head and(More)
We present a patient with a primary intraosseous meningioma of the calvarium that recurred three years after initial resection and reconstruction with a free anterolateral thigh (ALT) flap. The patient re-presented with progressive swelling in the same area. Imaging confirmed aggressive tumour recurrence with both intraand extra-cranial diseases and also(More)
AIMS To investigate and assess variation in routine approaches to the handling of basal cell carcinoma (BCC) re-excision specimens by Australian histopathologists. METHODS A questionnaire was sent to 440 Australian histopathologists requesting details of their routine approach to the handling of BCC re-excision specimens. Responses were collated and(More)
Introduction: Although we have previously described the use of a novel polyurethane biodegradable dermal substitute in the reconstruction of 20 free flap donor sites, and extensive cutaneous defects, including a large area of exposed calvarium secondary to burn injury, our experience with this material now extends to 35 free flap donor site reconstructions(More)
