Article
Background: We present our experience in using a disposable wound retractor commonly used in abdominal surgery named Alexis(®) (Applied Medical Resources Corporation, Rancho Santa Margarita, CA, USA), during breast augmentation in order to improve outcomes, particularly final scar length. Methods: Between January 2010 and November 2012, 40 patie...
Chapter
Before the 1900s, attempts to reduce breast size were limited to volume reduction without regard to nipple position and viability, not to breast shape. In the first part of the twentieth century, multiple techniques were described to move the nipple-areola complex and to reduce bulk. To maintain viability, two-stage procedures were often recommende...
Chapter
Immediate two-stage prosthetic breast reconstruction in the setting of postmastectomy radiotherapy (PMRT) currently is hardly achieved because of high rates of complications and poor cosmetic outcomes as: higher risks of hematoma, seroma, wound dehiscence with possible implant exposure, infections (short-term) and resistance to expansion, pain, cap...
Article
Prominent ears are a common congenital deformity of the external ear, derived from a combination of defects in the antihelix and concha. The majority of cases are treated surgically, but one of major difficulties associated with otoplasty regards the achievement of lasting aesthetic results. With the present study we propose an effective combinatio...
Article
Vacuum-assisted closure (VAC) therapy is a closed-loop, non invasive active system, characterised by a controlled and localised negative pressure applied on porous polyurethane absorbent foams. It promotes healing of acute and chronic wounds. Therapeutic effects of VAC therapy have been proved and demonstrated; however, this method can have some di...
Article
In nasal reconstruction all anatomic layers as cover, lining, and support, have to be replaced to restore proper aesthetics. Forehead skin has been acknowledged as the best donor site to resurface the nose. Traditionally forehead flap reconstruction is performed in two stages, but Millard described an intermediate third stage between flap transfer...

Spider bites are not very common, especially in the Mediterranean area, and those affecting the ocular-palpebral region involving reconstructive surgery are particularly rare. In May 2010, the case of a Caucasian 24-year-old female patient was brought to the attention of the Dermatology Department, University of Cagliari, Italy. The patient reporte...

Alloplastic breast reconstruction necessitating postmastectomy radiotherapy (PMRT) is at increased risk for complications such as capsular contracture, infection, extrusion, and poor cosmetic results. However, often the indication for PMRT is not decided until a permanent histological examination with review of the permanent sections is carried out...
Article
Melanoma arising in a burn scar is very uncommon. We report a recent case of a female patient in whom two different melanomas arose on a wide back burn scar at different times, focusing attention on three different potential risk factors for melanoma the patient had: sunburns, laser therapy on back and burn scar.
