Questions related to Reconstructive Surgery
I am currently searching for a topic to write my thesis on but to no avail. Preferably I would like the argument to be centered around plastics and reconstructive surgery since it is a specialty I would like to pursue after medical school.
The topics that interest me the most in plastic and reconstructive surgery are :
- Wound healing
- Vascularised Composite grafts
- Craniofacial surgery
Regarding these topics, I would like to know what within these arguments are trending questions.
Among children sufering from aero-disgestive conditions, it is incresasingly common to use surgical procedures as a treatment. My review of the literature is that the population is unclear. Do you have better sources than I've been able to find?
Surgeons who treat patients with vulvar malignancy should be aware of the serious defect (Fig) following radical vulvectomy, which need immediate reconstruction.
Numerous vascularized flaps have been designed and validated for obliterating the dead space and closing the vulvoperineal skin defect. But the reconstructive surgery with flaps is somewhat like a way that rob Peter to pay Paul.
I had systematically searched the relevant articles in Pubmed with the search strategy and selection criteria “vulvar malignancies”; “vulva”, “vulvar”, “vulval”;“vulvectomy” ; “vulvar reconstruction” combined with“vulvovaginal reconstruction”; “quality of life”, no paper regarding the procedure of vulvar transplantation was found.
Is it possible to perform allogeneic vulvar transplantation with anastomosis of the internal pudendal artery aiming at recovering an acceptable cosmetic appearance.
Thank you for your attention.

Our team is looking for evidence that muscle recruitment patterns are altered following ACL reconstructive surgery which may effect scores on tests such as the Bunkie test, outlined by de Witt and Venter in the attached publication.
I have done microneedling for 19 years and I always apply vitamin A, C and E to the skin immediately after the treatment. I have never seen a reaction ever and my experience covers about 2000 personal cases and in excess 10,000 when including my associates using the same regime. The product we use is Environ vitamin ACE Oil which has no added preservatives, colourants or perfumes. This is the same oil as used by Zeitter et al in their research at Hannover Medical School to test needling skin at weekly intervals. In their research the vitamin A,C E oil vastly increased the magnitude of the result.

This issue is very controversially or undiscussed at all in the pertinent literature. On the one hand this kind of surgery may last for hours, and on the other hand this prophylaxis is not commonly used in children. What is your approach and practical experience ?
