    With a free flap, skin, fat and sometimes muscle from the donor region is transferred to the chest by completely cutting the blood supply and reconnecting to a new blood supply on the chest using microsurgical techniques.
  22. pedicle flap
    Pedicled flaps – skin, muscle and fat – are moved from the back (Latissimus Dorsi or LD flap) or abdomen (pedicled TRAM flap) to the chest area by tunnelling it under the skin.

  31. Epinephrine
    A local anesthetic with epinephrine is utilized in most ear surgeries. This not only anesthetizes the incision site, but the epinephrine provides vasoconstriction, which decreases the blood flow to the area. Pledgets may also be soaked in epinephrine and applied to the wound to control bleeding.

  35. BMT/PE tubes
    A myringotomy is a small incision made in the tympanic membrane to allow the drainage of fluid from the middle ear. This accumulation of fluid is called an effusion. This may be caused by inflammation of the middle ear mucosa or Eustachian tube dysfunction due to congenital anomalies, inflammation of nasal mucosa (allergies), or, most commonly, enlarged adenoids.

    If untreated, the effusion may lead to infection (including mastoiditis), hearing loss, or perforation. Effusions are seen in patients of all ages; however, most adults are treated in the office. 

    A tympanostomy tube is frequently inserted to maintain the patency of the myringotomy and allow the fluid to drain freely and pressure to equalize within the middle ear. Tubes are usually not removed but rather left in place until they fall out.
  36. SMR
    Submucosal Resection, SMR) of the nose is a surgical procedure during which the bony structures of the turbinate are partially removed from below the mucous membrane. It is usually intended to treat a deviated septum causing chronic nasal airway obstruction or chronic nosebleeds.
  37. UPPP
    Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty,  This procedure is performed to correct upper-airway obstructions, such as sleep apnea


    The patient’s mouth is retracted with a Crow-Davis mouth gag, which is then suspended from the Mayo stand.

    The surgeon retracts the tonsil.

    The tonsil is removed.

    The uvula and soft palate are retracted.

    The uvula and soft palate are excised.

    Hemostasis is established.

    The soft palate is closed.
  38. FESS
    Frontal Sinus Surgery, the surgeon inserts an endoscope, a small tube with a magnifying lens or tiny camera, into your nostrils and guides it into your sinus cavities. He or she uses tiny instruments to remove polyps and other obstructions that block the flow of fluids from your sinuses. Your surgeon may also enlarge the openings leading from your sinuses to your nasal passages.
  39. Tracheostomy
    Tracheostomy is indicated for patient who require emergent or elective airway management of prolonged ventilator dependence or acute or chronic upper airway obstruction.


    An incision is made over the anterior tracheal wall.

    The surgeon visualizes the tracheal wall.

    The tracheal incision is made, usually between the third and fourth tracheal rings.

    The endotracheal tube is partially removed to the point superior to the tracheal incision.

    The tracheostomy tube is inserted.

    Hemostasis is achieved.

    Tracheostomy tube is secured.

    Dressings are applied.

    The obturator from the endotracheal tube is sent with the patient.
  40. Stapedectomy
    Stapedectomy is performed to restore mobilization of the ossicular chain.

    This is done in patients who have hearing loss that can progress to deafness.


    The auditory canal is injected with lidocaine.

    The external auditory canal is cleaned.

    The surgeon places the speculum in the ear.

    The tympanic membrane is elevated.

    The affected ossicles are freed or removed.

    The prosthesis is placed and secured (as shown in Figure _).

    The tympanic membrane is replaced.

    The external canal is packed, and the dressing is applied.
  41. Septoplasty/ST Role in this procedure
    most often performed to correct a deviated septum or repair a perforated septum caused by trauma; sometimes done with rhinoplasty for cosmetic correction of the deformities of the nose. surgeon works through the nostrils, making an incision in the lining of the septum to reach the cartilage targeted in the operation. Internal splints may be inserted into the septum and sutured in place. ST provide suction and tap chisel.

  46. Le Fort II
    Referred to as “panfacial” fractures, Pyramidal, Extends from dorsum of nose, across medial walls of orbit across maxilla below the zygomatic bone.
  47. Le Fort III
    Facial bones, including the Zygomas are detached from the anterior cranial base. Fracture line extends from the dorsum of the nose and cribriform plate along the medial tip of the lateral wall of the orbit.
  48. Mastopexy
    A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, raises the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast
  49. Mastectomy
    is surgery to remove all breast tissue from a breast as a way to treat or prevent breast cancer.
  50. Blepharoplasty
    Blepharoplasty is performed to rejuvenate the eye and improve vision.


    The surgeon determines how much tissue is to be removed by grasping the excess lid skin between forceps.

    The skin to be removed is marked using a surgical marker. 

    The incision is then made in the supratarsal crease.

    The excess skin is excised using the #15 blade.

    If there is also excess muscle, it may be excised using Adson forceps with teeth and curved iris scissors.

    The incision is then closed using a nonabsorbable subcuticular stitch with a few interrupted sutures between.
  51. Rhytidectomy
    face lift, Incision location from above the ear and in front of and behind the pinna, Dissection beneath and elevation of the platysma flap, .      The platysma muscle is sutured back to the mastoid.
  52. Mentoplasty
    Chin surgery, or mentoplasty, is a surgical procedure to reshape the chin either by enhancement with an implant or reduction surgery on the bone.
  53. Cheiloplasty
    (Lip Surgery). Trauma. The most common lip surgery is closure of lacerations caused by trauma. Also for cleft lip
  54. Abdominoplasty
    or "tummy tuck" is a cosmetic surgery procedure used to make the abdomen thinner and more firm. The surgery involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen in order to tighten the muscle and fascia of the abdominal wall. Incision is a long lower transverse also preserve belly button.
