 To treat tear trough deformities in young patients, transconjunctival orbital fat repositioning has been widely used.Although internal fixation of transposed fat enables more secure and stable fixation than the externalized percutaneous suture method, the latter is used more commonly because of the narrow operation field and consequent technical difficulty of the internal fixation method. We describe a novel technique using a newly devised needle (Chang\'s needle) that facilitates in…

(Annals of Plastic Surgery, 69(2), p 145-47.) 요약: The extended latissimus dorsi flap has been widely used for breast reconstruction. However, seroma at the donor site is a common complication and makes it difficult for reconstructive surgeons to choose it as a primary option. We analyzed the association between seroma and reconstructions with extended latissimus dorsi flaps. A series of 120 consecutive cases were included in this study. The average body mass index (BMI) was 22.1, and the mean r…

(Journal of Plastic Surgery and Hand Surgery, 45(3), p 165–167.) 요약: We report a case of raising a previous gluteal fasciocutaneous flap again as a perforator-based flap to cover a recurrent defect. This case illustrates that conventional flap tissue with a preserved perforator can be recycled as a perforator flap, and that this method can be an efficient surgical option for recurrent defects.​

(Journal of Plastic, Reconstructive & Aesthetic Surgery, 63(6), p 940-946.) 요약: Autologous rib cartilage grafting is a basic modality in auricular reconstruction, especially in cases of congenital microtia. However, due to heavy scarring at operative sites, lack of healthy normal tissues and an unfavourable blood circulation status, revision auricular reconstruction has always presented a surgical challenge to reconstructive surgeons. Rib cartilage grafts were used for revision auricular re…

(Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, 124(4S), p 95.) 요약: Romberg s disease, also known as progressive hemifacial atrophy, is an acquired disease causing severe deformity of the facial contour. There have been various attempts to surgically manage this disease. Synthetic implants, autologous fat injection, bone graft are commonly used surgical methods. Recently, free flap transfer is being widely applied. But due to bulkiness of the flap, gravitational effect leading to ptosis and remaining foca…

(Journal of the Korean Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons, 38(5), p 683-686.) 요약: Craniosynostosis of three or more cranial sutures was not common. \"Mercedes-Benz pattern,\" named by Moore was a rare form of craniosynostosis and had an atypical pattern of premature closure of cranial suture. It was not reported in Republic of Korea. We report this case with literature review. A 13-months-old male patient visited our clinic due to exophthalmos. He showed normal developmental course.…

(Journal of the Korean Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons, 38(3), p 228-234.) 요약: Reconstruction of chest wall has always been a challenging problem. Muscle flaps for chest wall reconstruction have been helpful in controling infection, filling dead space and covering the prosthetic material in this challenge. However, when we use muscle flaps, functional and cosmetic donor site morbidities could occur. The authors applied and revised various partial muscle flaps and combination use…

(Journal of Reconstructive Microsurgery, 25(9), p 533-538.) 요약: The pedicled perforator flap is now regarded as a valuable tool in the reconstructive armamentarium, but variable degrees of perforator twisting upon flap transposition are frequently encountered intraoperatively. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of pedicle length on twisted perforator flap viability. Forty Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly divided into four groups of 10 animals each: group I (short pedicle, no r…

(Korean Wound Care Society, 3(02), p 89-91) 요약: Vacuum Assisted Closure therapies for various wounds are increasing because it facilitate wound-healing capacity. A 66-year-old man was presented with a necrotic wound of lower leg after great saphenous vein harvest for coronary revascularization. After applications of V.A.C for two months, the wound size was decreased from 17x7cm to 7.5x4 cm, and the wound was healed completely without any complications after additional treatments with polyuretha…

(Journal of the Korean Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons, 34(2), p 258-260.) 요약: Myoepithelioma is a rare tumor that originates exclusively from myoepithelial cells of the salivary glands, breast and the prostate. Myoepithelioma accounts for less than 1% of all salivary gland tumors. The objective of our study is to present our experience of the infraauricular mass which was finally diagnosed as a myoepithelioma. A 54-year-old woman was presented with a firm, movable, slow-growing…

(Journal of the Korean Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons, 31(6), p 769-776) 요약: Hemifacial microsomia is a condition most frequently associated with facial asymmetry. Authors have experienced eighteen patients with mild hemifacial microsomia who were classified as type IA and IB. For the correction of mandibular asymmetry, mandibular augmentation was performed on the mandibular angle of the affected side using mandibule shaped porous high-density polyethylene in thirteen patients.…

(Journal of the Korean Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons, 30(6), p 719-728.) 요약: Sheens ground rules can help avoid many of the pitfalls in secondary rhinoplasty. There are 1) establish realistic patient expectations 2) defer surgery until the final resolution of the tissues 3) have a well-defined aesthetic concept 4) make a proper diagnosis 5) limit the dissection and 6) use only the autogenous materials. The authors tried to ascertain which rule is the most important and should b…

(Journal of the Korean Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons, 30(4), p 384-392.) 요약: Binders syndrome has some characteristic signs, such as orbital hypotelorism, shortened and flat noses, diminutive columella, crescent shaped nostrils, acute nasolabial angle, convex upper lip, class III malocclusion, absent anterior nasal spine, and maxillary hypoplasia. Binders syndrome patients usually need the correction of the following three: the hypoplatic nose, the perialar flatness due to unde…
