  • Mesh-like incisions are a simple and effective modification of the traditional components separation technique

    Uchikawa-Tani Yumiko, Yazawa Masaki, Kishi Kazuo

    JPRAS Open 5   41 - 45 2015.09

     View Summary

    <p>The components separation technique (CST) was first described in 1990 and involves elevating the external oblique muscle and medially advancing the muscle complex to close abdominal wall defects. Because this procedure is straightforward and does not require prosthetic materials to repair the defect, many surgeons have adopted it. However, some patients who undergo this technique develop Spigelian herniation or "lateral bulging", which is a projection deformity of the lateral abdominal wall. These patients may require prosthetic reinforcement to strengthen the abdominal wall due to the relaxing incision that is made during the CST. In this report, we describe a simple modification to improve the relaxing incision by substituting several short incisions for the traditional single, long incision in the external oblique fascia. These short incisions create a mesh-like pattern in the fascia, which preserves the strength of the lateral abdominal wall and may help prevent Spigelian herniation or lateral bulging. Although the separation of the external oblique muscle from the internal oblique muscle is slightly cumbersome compared to the traditional CST, the plane is avascular and sparsely connected, which allows separation using a finger or tools in our modified technique. Further studies are needed to confirm whether this technique is effective for large defects, although this simple modification may preserve the strength of the lateral abdominal wall without the need for prosthetic materials.</p>

  • Chest wall reconstruction using the pectoralis major flap with dual-partitioned partially cut ribs

    Uchikawa-Tani Yumiko, Yazawa Masaki, Konno Eri, Kishi Kazuo

    JPRAS Open 5   7 - 12 2015.09

     View Summary

    <p>In some cases, skeletal and soft issue elements are required for chest wall reconstruction. Although muscle flaps and ribs are commonly used for achieving ideal reconstruction, deformation and loss of bone strength are unavoidable in such cases. In the present report, we describe a technique for chest wall reconstruction that can help avoid such donor site deformity. A 59-year-old woman with metastasis of a malignant mixed tumor in the parotid gland underwent resection from the sternoclavicular joint to the first and second ribs, including the manubrium and part of the sternum body. To achieve chest wall reconstruction, we used a pectoralis major flap along with two dual-partitioned ribs. In this modified procedure, instead of simply using the flaps with the whole ribs (which is common), we only used the anterior cortical portion of the ribs. This helped preserve the chest wall strength and prevented deformity at the donor site. At 7 months after surgery, the cut ribs in the reconstructed area and the original donor site appeared stable, without any complications, on computer tomography. Although the thickness of the bone used was half of that used with the conventional method, the skeletal strength was sufficient for her daily activities. Our modified method requires some additional effort for cutting the ribs, but the rest of the procedure involves the use of a conventional, simple rib-muscle flap. With this method, donor site deformity can be prevented, and the procedure can not only be adapted for chest wall reconstruction but also for other skeletal reconstructions that require the use of ribs.</p>

  • Advantages of superficial femoral vein grafts for carotid artery reconstruction following carotid artery resection in the treatment of head and neck cancer

    Yokoyama Junkichi, Yazawa Masaki, Yoshimoto Hitoshi, Matsuo Seigo, Ohba Shinichi

    Acta Oto-Laryngologica 135 ( 3 ) 302 - 306 2015.03

    ISSN  0001-6489

     View Summary

    <p>Conclusion: Reconstruction of the carotid artery using the superficial femoral vein (SFV) is very effective due to the ease in harvesting the vessel and its optimal size and length for carotid artery replacement. Objectives: To evaluate the effectiveness of carotid artery reconstruction using the SFV. Methods: Ten patients with malignant tumors involving the carotid artery underwent carotid artery resection followed by reconstruction with the SFV. The SFV between the deep femoral vein and branches to the great saphenous vein and deep femoral vein at the popliteal region was used as a reconstructive vessel. Results: The mean length and diameter of the grafted SFVs were 13.9 cm and 11.2 mm, respectively. The mean time for acquisition of SFV was 18 min. Ultrasonography measurements indicated that the mean lumen diameter of the common carotid artery was 8.37 mm. None of the patients experienced any permanent neurologic complications. The 2-year and 5-year overall survival rates were 60% and 40%, respectively. En bloc resection of the cancer and involved carotid artery followed by reconstruction with the SFV provides effective locoregional control. Our results indicated no postoperative vascular graft thrombosis and no donor site complications.</p>

  • Basic study of soft tissue augmentation by adipose-inductive biomaterial

    Journal of Biomedical Materials Research - Part B Applied Biomaterials 103 ( 1 ) 92 - 96 2015.01

     View Summary

    <p>Reconstructive surgery for tumor resection, trauma, and congenital anomaly involves volume augmentation with autologous tissue transfer. However, a healthy region is damaged as a donor site, and the autologous tissue is transferred like a patchwork to the recipient site. We have attempted to induce adipogenesis activity in artificial biomaterial that is injectable with an injection needle for soft tissue augmentation. First of all, the optimal dose of pioglitazone hydrochloride was examined with adipo-precursor cells in terms of the proliferator-activated receptor-g mRNA expression levels affected by reagent in vitro. Then, salmon collagen with pioglitazone was adjusted in terms of the dose and the salmon collagen was injected into mouse back using an injection needle in vivo. At 4 weeks after implantation, the pioglitazone collagen gel was substituted by mature adipocytes in comparison with the case for control collagen gel without pioglitazone. These results are indicative of the possibility of promoting adipogenesis using collagen with pioglitazone as an adipose-inductive substance.</p>

  • Anatomic basis of anorectal reconstruction by dynamic graciloplasty with pudendal nerve anastomosis

     View Summary

    <p>BACKGROUND: Dynamic graciloplasty has been proposed for anal reconstruction, but this method has 2 major drawbacks. First, an electrical device is required for control of the gracilis. The anastomosis with the pudendal nerve will provide more physiological control. Second, the limitation in the mobility of the muscle flap results in wrapping the anal canal with the muscle's distal portion, which is tendonlike and inelastic. Enhancing the mobility of the muscle flap will enable wrapping with the proximal, muscle-like, and extensible portion, possibly providing better sphincteric function. However, the basis for such an operative method is lacking. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study is to provide the basis for the refined method of anal sphincter reconstruction by dynamic graciloplasty with pudendal nerve anastomosis and to verify the feasibility of lengthening the nerve to the gracilis muscle flap by dissecting into the muscle belly, detaching the gracilis muscle from its origin, and enhancing the mobility of the muscle flap. STUDY DESIGN: This is a retrospective, descriptive study. METHODS: The results from the anatomical study on 9 cadavers are reported. RESULTS: Tension-free anastomosis of the pudendal nerve and nerve to the gracilis was successfully performed in all the 9 cases: in 2 cases, by lengthening the nerve. The detachment of the muscle origin improved the mobility of the muscle flap, and the more proximal portion could be used for wrapping the anal canal, as confirmed in 4 cases. LIMITATIONS: The limited number of cases was a shortcoming of this study. CONCLUSIONS: By lengthening the nerve to the muscle, the gracilis can be used for anal sphincter reconstruction with pudendal nerve anastomosis, negating the need for an electrical device. By detaching the origin of the gracilis muscle, its proximal portion can be used to wrap the anal canal, possibly enabling a longer functional canal with stronger constricting force and better vascularity. These modifications to past methods may improve fecal continence after the operation.</p>
