    ABSTRACT: Five cases of Wassel types III, IV and VII thumb duplication underwent a Bilhaut-Cloquet procedure. A stable and mobile metacarpophalangeal joint was achieved in all cases. Interphalangeal joint motion was limited but this joint was stable in all cases. The nail ridge in these thumbs was minimal. A strong, stable thumb of normal size and good appearance can result from the Bilhaut-Cloquet procedure. When one nail is 70% of normal width, a modified procedure using the whole of one nail will avoid the nail ridge, but the nail will still differ from normal.

    ABSTRACT: The use of tensor fasciae latae was first described as a rotation or island flap and evolved into a free flap in the late 1970s. This series of 85 patients undergoing free tensor fasciae latae transfer includes complex head and neck, abdominal wall and lower limb reconstruction. The overall success rate was 93% (79 patients), partial flap loss, 5% (four cases), and flap failure, 2% (two patients). Twelve patients (14%) required unplanned return to theatre for exploration resulting in a 75% salvage rate. We believe this series demonstrates the great versatility of this flap and highlights particular indications for its use.

    ABSTRACT: This is the first reported case of non-traumatic, acute bilateral forearm compartment syndrome. Despite a delay of over 24 hours until surgical decompression and 50% muscle fibre necrosis in the histopathological examination, the clinical outcome was excellent after fasciotomy, delayed primary wound closure and early institution of a range of motion exercise programme. The literature on non-traumatic causes of compartment syndrome is reviewed.

    ABSTRACT: The reconstruction of large and intricate defects may need the use of combined flaps due to either the size or requirement for multiple surfaces. The combination may be between free and pedicled tissue transfer, and combined or connected free flaps classified by Koshima. We will discuss the use of the Siamese combined free flap as a method of the reconstructing challenging cases, including one of the largest free tissue transfer reported.
