2 Article Oral Squamomelanocytic Tumour in a Dog: a Unique Biphasic Cancer. 2016

Muscatello, L V / Avallone, G / Benazzi, C / Sarli, G / Porcellato, I / Brachelente, C / Brunetti, B. ·Department of Veterinary Medical Sciences, University of Bologna, Bologna, Italy.

ABSTRACT: In human medicine, squamomelanocytic tumour is a malignant cutaneous neoplasm composed of closely intermingled neoplastic squamous cells and melanocytes. A multinodular gingival tumour in a 16-year-old, mixed breed neutered female dog was examined microscopically. Two populations of neoplastic cells, melanocytic and squamous epithelial cells were intermingled. The melanocytic cells were melan-A positive and cytokeratin AE1-AE3 negative and the squamous component was cytokeratin AE1-AE3 positive and melan-A negative. Bovine papillomavirus was not identified by immunohistochemistry or polymerase chain reaction. A diagnosis of squamomelanocytic tumour was made.

3 Article Posterior trunk reconstruction with the dorsal intercostal artery perforator based flap: Clinical experience on 20 consecutive oncological cases. 2016

Brunetti, Beniamino / Tenna, Stefania / Aveta, Achille / Poccia, Igor / Segreto, Francesco / Cerbone, Vincenzo / Persichetti, Paolo. ·Department of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery, "Campus Bio-Medico Di Roma" University, Rome, Italy. b.brunetti@unicampus.it. · Department of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery, "Campus Bio-Medico Di Roma" University, Rome, Italy. ·Microsurgery · Pubmed #25821103.

ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: Few studies in the recent literature have investigated the reliability of dorsal intercostal artery perforator (DICAP) flap in posterior trunk reconstruction. The purpose of this report is to describe our clinical experience with the use of DICAP flaps in a cohort of oncological patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Twenty patients underwent posterior trunk reconstruction with DICAP based flaps. Patients age ranged from 45 to 76 years. All defects resulted from skin cancer ablation. Defect sizes ranged from 4 × 4 to 6 × 8 cm. The flaps were mobilized in V-Y or propeller fashion. The flaps were islanded on 1 (12 cases), 2 (6 cases), or 3 (2 cases) perforators. Donor sites were always closed primarily. RESULTS: Eleven V-Y advancement flaps were performed; one of these was converted to a perforator-plus peninsular flap design, which retained an additional source of blood supply from the opposite skin bridge. Nine flaps were mobilized in propeller fashion. Flap dimensions ranged from 4 × 6 to 6 × 14 cm. Mean operative time was 70 min. One V-Y flap complicated with marginal necrosis that healed with no need for reintervention. All the other flaps survived uneventfully. No other complications were observed at recipient and donor sites. Follow-up ranged from 3 months to 2 years. All the patients were satisfied with the surgical outcome. CONCLUSIONS: DICAP based flaps proved to be a reliable option to resurface posterior trunk defects following oncological resection, allowing to achieve like-with-like reconstruction with excellent contour and minimal donor-site morbidity. © 2015 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

4 Article Transversally oriented pedicled perforator flaps: A reliable alternative for lower leg reconstruction. 2015

Brunetti, Beniamino / Poccia, Igor / Tenna, Stefania / Campa, Stefano / Persichetti, Paolo. ·Department of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery, "Campus Bio-Medico Di Roma" University, via Alvaro Del Portillo, 200, Rome, 00128, Italy. ·Microsurgery · Pubmed #26256435.

ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: The use of a transverse pattern for perforator flap design and its possible clinical applications in the field of lower leg reconstruction are previously unreported in the medical literature. The purpose of this report is to describe our clinical experience with the use of transversally oriented pedicled perforator flaps in lower leg reconstruction. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Seven patients underwent lower leg reconstruction with transversally oriented pedicled perforator flaps. Patients age ranged from 42 to 68 years. All defects resulted from skin cancer ablation. Defect sizes ranged from 9 × 5 to 5 × 2.5 cm. The technique was applied to patients presenting with vertically oriented, long, and narrow defects, not feasible for primary closure, with the only audible perforators detected at a significant distance from the wound. RESULTS: All flaps were based on a single perforator vessel. One of them was converted to a perforator-plus peninsular flap design, which retained an additional source of blood supply from the opposite skin bridge. The flaps were always mobilized in V-Y fashion. Donor sites were always closed primarily. Flap dimensions ranged from 15 × 7 to 8 × 3.5 cm. Operative time ranged from 40 to 90 minutes. All flaps survived uneventfully. Follow-up ranged from 6 months to 2 years. All patients were satisfied with the surgical outcome. CONCLUSIONS: The use of transversally oriented pedicled perforator flaps proved to be a reliable alternative option to reconstruct small to medium size defects of the lower leg.

ABSTRACT: AIM: Accuracy in melanoma detection is important to recognize early curable melanomas and to minimize the unnecessary excision of benign lesions. The aim of this paper was to evaluate melanoma screening accuracy of Italian pigmented lesion clinics in terms of number needed to excise (NNE), melanoma thickness, and number of melanomas diagnosed during patient follow-up. METHODS: Information on all skin tumors excised in 2011 were extracted from the databases of the participating centers. Information whether the lesion was excised at the baseline examination or during patient follow-up was recorded, as well as the overall number of patients examined in each center in 2011. RESULTS: After e-mail solicitation, 22 of 40 centers agreed to participate. A total of 8229 excised lesions were collected. The overall number of examined patients was 86.564, thus 9.5% of screened patients had a lesion removed. Of the excised lesions, 866 were diagnosed as melanoma (1% of examined patients) and 5311 (88.9%) were melanocytic nevi. Three NNE were calculated giving values of 7.9 excised lesions to find 1 melanoma, 7.1 melanocytic lesions to find 1 melanoma, and 3.7 lesions to find 1 skin malignancy. The median melanoma thickness was 0.6 mm, with only 15.1% of melanomas ≥ 1 mm of thickness. Melanomas detected over time were 96 (11.1%; mean thickness, 0.3 mm), with 15.6% of lesions excised after short-term follow-up and 84.4% after long-term follow-up. CONCLUSION: The NNE values comparable to those achieved in specialized clinical settings and the high number of early melanomas diagnosed at the baseline examination or during patient follow-up indicate a high level of accuracy in melanoma screening achieved by Italian pigmented lesion clinics.
