Scientific paperOsteotomies and bone grafts in treatment of developmental facial deformities☆

AbstractRecent developments in facial and craniofacial osteotomies have opened up new frontiers in the correction of developmental deformities of the face and jaws. Clinical examples are illustrated.

Scientific paperMicrovascular reconstruction of the mandible☆

AbstractFive microvascular reconstructions of the mandible were performed in the past 2 years. One dorsalis pedis osteocutaneous flap was used to reconstruct the alveolar ridge and four groin osteocutaneous flaps were used for various defects of the mandible. Free microvascular bone grafts were found useful in previously irradiated fields, in anterior arch reconstruction, and in patients with massive soft tissue and bone loss.

Scientific paperThe myocutaneous flap: A versatile approach to major reconstructive problems☆

AbstractOur experience with 50 myocutaneous flaps shows that the remarkable flexibility in design and execution of these flaps has opened up a new frontier in plastic and reconstructive surgery. The complication rate was 20 percent. Only one complication, partial flap necrosis, caused serious compromise of the reconstruction. Not only could the flaps be transposed in any direction locally, but they could be transferred to distant sites with microvascular anastomoses, and muscle function could be restored by incorporating nerve repairs into the reconstruction. Myocutaneous flaps permit us now to solve reconstructive problems that were heretofore unsolvable.

Subcutaneous mastectomy for juvenile hypertrophy of the breast: report of a case

AbstractMassive juvenile hypertrophy of the breast in a 12-year-old girl was successfully treated with a primary subcutaneous mastectomy and secondary placement of gel-filled silastic implants. The patient weighed 114 pounds and her breasts weighed15/12 pounds. Small foci of regrowth occurred at the lateral ends of the mastectomy incisions only; a total of five of these foci were removed. Six years later no evidence of further residual breast tissue was noted and the breasts have been satisfactorily reconstructed.

Scientific articleVasovasostomy: Outpatient procedure for reversal of vasectomy

AbstractResults of splinted and nonsplinted vasovasostomy in two groups of patients are presented. The nonsplinted technique outlined herein proved far superior in its patency rate. The procedure is easily done on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia. The procedure requires no special tools or magnification, and patients experienced no greater discomfit than they did from their initial vasectomy. We believe the procedure fulfills the need for an economical and effective vasovasostomy.

Microsurgical transfer of the great toe to the radius to provide prehension after partial avulsion of the hand

Transfer of the great toe to the radius proved to be an effective means of gaining the function of grasp in a patient with an incomplete amputation of the hand in which all the digital flexor tendons had been avulsed. The remaining stump consisted of the carpal bones and fragments of the second, third, and fourth metacarpals. A long, oblique osteotomy of the first metatarsal was designed so that it would abut with the palmar face of the radius. Power was supplied to the great toe by the flexor carpi radialis and the brachioradialis tendons. Sensibility was supplied by the median nerve and circulation was furnished by the radial artery and the cephalic vein.
