Breast surgery currently remains very subjective and each intervention depends on the ability and experience of the operator. To date, no objective measurement of this anatomical region can codify surgery. In this light, we wanted to compare and validate a new technique for 3D scanning (LifeViz 3D) and its clinical application. Materials and methods. - We tested the use of the 3D LifeViz system (Quantificare) to perform volumetric calculations in various settings ("in situ" in cadaveric dissection, of control prostheses and in clinical patients) and we compared this system to other techniques (CT scanning and Archimedes' principle) under the same conditions. Results. - We were able to identify the benefits (feasibility, safety, portability, low patient stress) and limitations (underestimation of the “in situ” volume, subjectivity of contouring, and patient selection) of the LifeViz 3D system, concluding that the results are comparable with other measurement techniques. Conclusion. - The prospects of this technology seem promising in numerous applications in clinical practice to limit the subjectivity of breast surgery. [less ▲]

Profonde ou atteignant une large surface cutanée, la brûlure engendre souvent des séquelles fonctionnelles impor- tantes. Ces séquelles se constituent précocement et ont des répercussions non négligeables sur la qualité de vie des patients. Pour les prévenir et les traiter, le kinésithérapeute est un acteur important dans leur prise en charge précoce. Il devra évaluer les fonctions respiratoires, musculaires, orthopédiques mais également cutanées. L’objectif est de définir des stratégies de traitement faisant appel à des techniques de kinésithérapie classiques adaptées à cette pathologie spécifique. [less ▲]

Distal lower leg soft tissue defect is frequently a challenge to repair, particularly on the tibial crest. The coverage of this kind of lesion has some limitations because of regional minimal blood supply and paucity of local soft-tissue flaps. The perforator pedicled propeller (PPP) method tries to find a new place in lower leg reconstruction in bringing similar tissues at the recipient site and avoiding long and difficult free flap transfer or muscular sacrifice. The authors report on the use of PPP method for a tibial crest exposure after trauma and for a soft tissue defect with osteomyelitis on the tibial crest. [less ▲]

Background ⁄ Aims: Latissimus dorsi (LD) transfer in the case of breast reconstruction remains frequently used because this muscle provides a good size source of tissue in reconstructive surgery. Given that, the consequences of the LD removal on shoulder function and the actual loss of maximal strength developed must be investigated. Methods: Twenty women (50 ± 7Æ5 years old) were evaluated before surgery, 3 and 6 months after an unilateral transfer of a pedicle flap of LD muscle used for breast reconstruction. Women performed a bilateral shoulder isokinetic assessment [for the internal rotators (IRs) and external rotators and for the abductor and adductor (ADD) muscles] allowing the establishment of bilateral muscular deficit status and the study of agonist ⁄ antagonist muscle ratios. The algofunctional and clinical status of the shoulders was analysed by the means of Constant score and specific shoulder clinical tests. The women did not perform any specific strengthening of muscle shoulder after surgery. Results: The isokinetic assessment showed a muscle weakness 3 and 6 months after LD transfer, mainly on the ADDs (33 ± 9% at 6 months) and on the IRs (16 ± 11% at 6 months). The Constant score significantly decreased after surgery on the operated shoulder. Women with a Constant score impairment showed pain during specific shoulder clinical tests. We also found a correlation between Constant score impairment and internal rotators weakness or rotator muscle imbalance. Conclusion: Given those results, we could advocate a specific shoulder strengthening after LD transfer, focused mainly on the IRs and ADDs. [less ▲]

We present the case of a patient with a circumferential venous ulcer at the level of the calf. She is hospitalized for surgical treatment by continuous aspiration dressing and coverage with skin graft. This patient presents a history of chronic pain, on which classical medications have few effects and are accompanied by side effects. After discussion with the patient, a double continuous peripheral nervous block (femoral and sciatic nerve) is set up to improve the tolerance to wound dressing. This technique presents favorable antalgic results. The indications and the different techniques of block performance (by electrostimulation or echo-guided) are described. The infectious risks related to the presence of catheter near cutaneous wounds are clarified according to recent data of literature. The relevance of these techniques in correlation with the development of chronic pain and on the trophicity of the wounds are also discussed. [less ▲]

A 51-year-old Caucasian woman developed severe drug-induced toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) due to allopurinol. The withdrawal of the culprit drug was unfortunately delayed, and dramatic retardation of reepithelialization was observed. At that stage of disease evolution, an inflammatory cell infiltrate was present in the dermis. Coverage of eroded lesions by frozen cultured keratinocyte allografts failed to hasten reepithelialization compared to ungrafted sites. This unusual protracted TEN evolution was followed by the development of extensive hypertrophic and keloid scars. Several biopsies were taken over 6 months. The histologic presentation of the grafted and ungrafted eroded scar tissues looked similar. Both the number and size of the Factor XIIIa-positive dermal dendrocytes, as well as the number of alpha-actin-positive myofibroblasts showed a marked increase between weeks 2 and 12 after grafting. They were reduced after 6 months when the scarring process was stabilized. alpha1 [IV] collagen was never expressed over the eroded scars. Similar to burn patients, delayed reepithelialization might be a risk factor for abnormal scarring in TEN. Cultured keratinocyte allograft apparently offered no improvement in reepithelialization and did not prevent abnormal scarring in this TEN patient. [less ▲]

Basal cell carcinomas (BCC) are the most common malignant neoplasms in humans. Clinical misdiagnoses are not uncommon. These cancers are classified according to their histological and clinical characteristics which exhibit distinct malignant behaviours. It is important to be aware of the different clinical presentations both for the accurate diagnosis and tumour management. We report the case of a 78-year-old man, who presented an unusual pedunculated and pigmented BCC. This combined aspect is rarely encountered. [less ▲]

Aortobronchic fistula is a very unusual complication of thoracic aneurysm. We report the case of a 71-year old man with rupture of a thoracic aortic aneurysm in the left main bronchus. The patient had suffered a car crash fifteen years ago, without any evidence of aortic rupture at the time. Thereafter, he developed an aortic isthmic dilation (36 mm in diameter). The patient suffered from long standing pulmonary insufficiency and emphysema and was admitted several times on an urgent basis for acute dyspnea. During an hospitalization for respiratory distress, he presented haemoptysis and left lung hyperinflation secondary to partial fistulization and extrinsic compression of the main left bronchus. Isthmic aortic resection and prosthetic grafting was performed and the left main bronchus was closed by an autologous pericardial patch. Ten days later, following an air-leak from the bronchial closure, a transposed latissimus dorsi flap was used by the plastic surgeon to repair the defect. Nevertheless, the patient died from multisystemic failure six weeks later. [less ▲]

Facio-craniostenosis. Facio-craniostenosis is associated with premature stenosis of one or several cranial sutures. The clinical variety is defined by the affected suture. In the complex forms, major disturbances of the anterior fossa of the cranial base are observed. Intracranial hypertension sometimes observed may lead to impairment of the function of the brain or the eyes. The authors have observed 73 children with craniostenosis and have operated upon 49 of them. Three types of methods have been used. The stress is made on the latest one combining advancement of the orbito-frontal "bandeau" and the regularization of the vault. Operating early is essential for prevention of functional sequellae. The optimal age for surgical treatment seems to be between 3 and 6 months. Complications have been remarkable benign. [less ▲]

Seventeen burned patients were investigated--Group I (n=10) with a mean burned area expressed as unit burn standard (UBS) of 69 +/- 24 and Group II (n = 7) with a mean UBS of 23 +/- 8. Blood samples were collected immediately after admission, 6-12 h after injury, during the morning and evening of day 1, and then daily for 2 weeks. This prospective study demonstrated complement activation in vivo in all burned patients, measured by C3d/C3 ratio index which was not related to the extent of the burned surface. A significant protease-antiprotease imbalance, correlated to the severity of burns, was found, leukocyte elastase was increased throughout the observation period, alpha 2-macroglobulin drastically decreased in severely burned patients, and alpha 1-proteinase inhibitor promptly decreased below the normal level in patients with more than 40 UBS. Finally, there was a delayed but then persistent acute-phase reactant protein response involving C-reactive protein, haptoglobin and alpha 1-acid glycoprotein, the concentrations of which reached a plateau on days 6 or 7.
