Background: Since 1965, the practice of digital replantation has seen great technical strides and become commonplace worldwide. However, some American authors have recently reported declining rates of replantation. We set out to characterize the patient population and describe treatment patterns from 2005 to 2016 at a large Canadian regional replantation center. Methods: A retrospective cohort of all patients undergoing digital replantation and revascularization from 2005 to 2016 was identifi…

Health utility is a quantitative global measure of patients' health status. This retrospective cohort study aimed to compare health utilities of patients with mild to moderate versus severe carpal tunnel syndrome and determine inter-instrumental agreement. Health utilities of 29 patients with varying severity of carpal tunnel syndrome were measured indirectly by Short-Form Sixth Dimension and EuroQol 5D questionnaire and directly by Chained Standard Gamble and a visual analogue scale. Health …

Despite the common use of intraoperative vasopressors in hand microsurgery, the association between intraoperative vasopressor use and digital replant failure has not yet been examined. Our study aims to examine the association between intraoperative vasopressor use (phenylephrine and/or ephedrine) and postoperative digital failure of replanted or revascularized digits.All patients from a single tertiary hand center who underwent unilateral digital replantation or revascularization procedures…

The rates of contralateral prophylactic mastectomy (CPM) are increasing in women with breast cancer. Previous retrospective research has examined clinical and demographic predictors of the uptake of CPM. However, to the authors' knowledge, there has been very little prospective research to date that has examined psychosocial functioning prior to breast cancer surgery to determine whether psychosocial functioning predicts uptake of CPM. The current study was conducted to evaluate demographic, …

The use of intravenous heparin after digit replantation or revascularization (DRR) varies greatly. The insufficient evidence presents a lack of clinical equipoise needed for a randomized trial; as such, a matched propensity score analysis was performed to evaluate the role of postoperative anticoagulation after DRR. The purpose of this study was to determine if the use of postoperative therapeutic anticoagulation reduced the risk of digit failure.A retrospective cohort of patients who underwe…

There has been limited research on the acceptability of breast reconstruction (BR) to breast cancer patients. We performed interviews to explore breast cancer patients' acceptability of BR.Qualitative study.Recruitment from six Ontario hospitals across the province (Toronto, Ottawa, Hamilton, London, Thunder Bay and Windsor) as well as key breast cancer organisations between November 2017 and June 2018.Women of any age with a diagnosis of breast cancer planning to undergo or having undergone …

Meta-analyses are common in the plastic surgery literature, but studies concerning their quality are lacking. The authors assessed the overall quality of meta-analyses in plastic surgery, and attempted to identify variables associated with scientific quality.A systematic review of meta-analyses published in seven plastic surgery journals between 2007 and 2017 was undertaken. Publication descriptors and methodologic details were extracted. Articles were assessed using the following two instrum…

Decision analysis allows clinicians to apply evidence-based medicine to guide objective decisions in uncertain scenarios. There is no comprehensive review summarizing the various decision analysis tools used. The authors aimed to appraise and review the decision analytic models used in hand surgery.A search of English articles on the PubMed, Ovid, and Embase databases was performed. All articles, regardless of date of publishing, were considered. Two reviewers, based on strict inclusion crite…

Unilateral coronal craniosynostosis is a challenging condition in craniofacial surgery. Frontoorbital advancement by single-stage resorbable remodeling and distraction osteogenesis (DO) techniques have known intraoperative differences, but their comparative outcomes are less well characterized.A systematic literature search of the MEDLINE, EMBASE, LILACS, and Web of Science databases was conducted. The search was performed using terms related to craniosynostosis and its operative management. …

The purpose of this systematic review was to comprehensively summarize barriers of access to breast reconstruction and evaluate access using the Penchansky and Thomas conceptual framework based on the six dimensions of access to care.The authors performed a systematic review that focused on (1) breast reconstruction, (2) barriers, and (3) breast cancer. Eight databases (i.e., EMBASE, MEDLINE, PsycINFO, CINHAL, ePub MEDLINE, ProQuest, Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, and Cochrane Centr…
