Common indications for z-plasty include (1) lengthening of a contracted linear scar across a flexor crease (Figures 2a and 2b) —flexion contracture is released, and functionality across the scar is.. . When the skin is undermined, 2 triangular flaps are created... The basic Z-plasty is composed of a central limb incision and two lateral limb incisions that form a Z. The lengths of the three limbs and the angles formed between the central and lateral limbs are equal. The incisional pattern creates two triangular tissue flaps that are transposed, changing both the length and orientation of a wound or scar The three objectives of a Z-plasty are: Lengthening a contracted scar Change the direction of a scar and aligning it with relaxed skin tension lines. Interrupting and breaking the scar for better camouflage
Classic indications for Z-plasty include realignment of scars that are not parallel to RSTLs, correction of scars that cause contracted webbing of the neck, reposition of an oral commissure or eyelid that is malpositioned from scarring, and the correction of congenital or post traumatic epicanthal folds.12,13 Z-plasty is also helpful in the repair of a primary cleft palate. 14,15 It is impossible to list all of the reported uses for Z-plasty described in the literature The indication for a Z-plasty is the lengthening of a contracted linear scar through a flexor crease and changing the direction of a scar to improve cosmetic appearance. Notable Uses Treatment of scars that distort facial landmark . The mostcommon situation in which a z-plasty wouldbe used is an.. A Z-plasty is used to accomplish one or more of three changes in the nature of a scar: change of scar direction, interruption of scar linearity, and release of scar contracture (lengthening of scar)
The Z-plasty is a procedure that is applicable to the following situations: Realignment of tissues/shifting of topographical structures . The Z-plasty is well known for realigning structures in which a step deformity has occurred. However, this technique is also helpful in moving tissue to a new position. Fig. 1 indication of the degree of laxity. Z-plasty is a plastic surgery technique which is used to improve the functional and cosmetic appearance of a scar by redirecting it into better alignment.
Z-plasty is a common interposition surgical technique utilized in plastic and reconstructive surgery to revise scars. Previously referred to as converging triangular flaps, Z-plasty involves 2 equal and opposing transposition flaps that are raised and transposed along a shared axis. A benefit of t The unique Z-plasty technique is indicated in broad, diastemathick hypertrophic and a short frenum associated with midline vestibule. Limberg.10The basic idea of the z-plasty was best described by The main objectives of the z-plasty are 10 Elongateusually along a to releas This article addresses the use of scar revision surgery as it relates to the use of Z-plasty, W-plasty, and geometric broken line closure. Each of these techniques is discussed in detail and the author provides perspectives regarding the indications, advantages, and limitations of each procedure
Z-Plasty Indications: Long linear scars; Contracted or webbed scars; AVOID in keloid revision as the keloid may recur along the lengthened scar; Figure 1: Z-Plasty 1=Scar oriented A-B; 2=Scar excised and creation of flaps with two limbs parallel to RSTLs; 3=Movement of the flaps Furlow double-opposing z-plasty First described in 1978 by Furlow for the repair of a cleft soft palate, the double-opposing z-plasty, also known as the Furlow palatoplasty, is an excellent procedure for repairing a submucous cleft. It is also useful in patients with touch closure who simply need lengthening of the soft palate and The indications for Z-plasty include scars that are greater than 30° off the RTSLs, scars that are contracted, and scars that form webs. With the classic Z-plasty, each limb is the same length and the angles of the 2 triangular flaps are 60°. Given these parameters, for any given scar there are 2 options for designing the limbs of the Z The T-Z-plasty of the male neck is a procedure that should be considered a compromise in comparison with the rhytidectomy with platysmaplasty, but it is a reasonable compromise. The procedure directly addresses the primary complaint, carries almost no morbidity, produces very high patient satisfaction, and yields a scar that is virtually.
Classic 60° Z-plasty lengthens scars by 75%, while 45° and 30° designs lengthen scars by 50% and 25%, respectively. Lateral limb placement is crucial for satisfactory results. Place lateral limbs parallel to the line in which the new central limb will lie. Previous Z-plasty is designed to elongate a less contracted linear scar or to break a scar tension line. Skin grafting is an option when the primary closure is impossible and there is a lack of adjacent tissue for coverage
Nasopharyngeal stenosis is not commonly seen at present. Formerly most often due to various severe infections of the upper respiratory tract, the most common current etiology is involvement of posterior pillars at the time of tonsillo‐adenoidectomy Iliotibial band friction syndrome presents with lateral knee pain usually in runners. When conservative treatment fails, surgical lengthening, or Z-plasty, can provide symptomatic relief.

Indications. Indications for this surgery are the release of contractures, realignment along Langer lines (natural skin folds) relieving skin tension, The Z-Plasty procedure shown with the transposition of the two flaps. The initial line is perpendicular to the Langer lines. By incising and transposing the flaps to the opposite corners, the. Indications. Z-plasty is an especially useful technique when dealing with a scar that crosses relaxed skin tension lines. Simple redirection of the central limb into these lines can provide adequate camouflage. The redistribution of tension on the wound provided by Z-plasty can be very helpful when dealing with a contracted scar or with a scar. The indication for performing the Z-plasty was the presence of scar contracture in the skin that prevented satisfactory correction of the toe. Soft tissue release of the metatarsophalangeal joint was followed by a simple dorsal skin Z-plasty transposition. Patients were evaluated 1 1/2 to 6 years after revision surgery 1.

Changing the direction of a cosmetically unfavorable scar. • The scar is realigned along a natural skin fold or along the lines of least skin tension, creating less tension on the wound & resulting in a cosmetically superior scar appearance
The remedy is a surgical intervention called z-plasty. The immediate post-operative result is shown above right. In essence the procedure involves surgical reconstruction of the raphe but adjustment of dartos tissue may also be required Z-plasty. A Z-plasty is a common type of transitional flap that involves two flaps, each one made and moved to cover the newly exposed area created by the other flap. The end result creates a Z shape. It's primarily used to treat unsightly or painful scars and can be applied to just about any part of the body, including the face and hands The male Z-plasty necklift (MZPN) is a well described procedure [1-4], specifically used for men with severe aging neck changes who cannot be achieve a satisfactory aesthetic outcome with other necklift procedures that are performed through a submental incision. Other direct excision male necklift techniques have also been described [5-9] Z-Plasty. This is a flap procedure where a skin flap is moved from one area to another. It is called a Z plasty because the final scar has three limbs in the shape of a Z. The pilonidal disease is removed, and the Z-Plasty is an attempt to cover the defect. This is not a bad idea, but has to be done very aggressively in order to.

For the neophyte, the Z-plasty maneuver can be a surgical procedure veiled in intrigue. The theoretical mechanics of Z-plasty geometry are described, establishing that the new length of the central limb in a 60-degree Z-plasty is square root(3) of its original length. Factors such as skin tension. Cleft palate is a common congenital defect with several described surgical repairs. The most successful treatment modality remains a controversy. The goals of repair focus on achievement of normal speech and optimizing velopharyngeal function while minimizing both fistula formation and facial growth restriction. In this video, the authors demonstrate use of the double opposing Z-plasty. Next: Indications. Relevant Anatomy. Each cheek is a large cosmetic unit demarcated by several junction lines as follows: medially at the nasofacial groove and melolabial crease, laterally at the preauricular crease, superiorly at the orbital rim and superior zygomatic arch, and inferiorly at the border of the mandible. [ 7 Ankyloglossia, often referred to as tongue tie, is a common congenital anomaly that is usually detected soon after birth. It is characterized by partial fusion-or in rare cases, total fusion-of the tongue to floor of the mouth due to an abnormality of the lingual frenulum. By definition, a frenulum, which is a small frenum, is a narrow.
Preputioplasty or prepuce plasty, also known as limited dorsal slit with transverse closure, is a plastic surgical operation on the prepuce or foreskin of the penis, to widen a narrow non-retractile foreskin which cannot comfortably be drawn back off the head of the penis in erection because of a constriction which has not expanded after adolescence Patients develop scar-like tissue under the palmar skin of the hand that draws their fingers into the palm and can affect function. This condition can be surgically treated by cutting out the disease, then stitching the skin back into place (fasciectomy) or replacing it with a graft of skin taken from elsewhere on the body (dermofasciectomy) Nasopharyngeal stenosis (NPS) should not be confused with choanal atresia. Choanal atresia is a congenital deformity that causes a narrow or completely obstructed airway at the choanae that often extends into the nasal cavity.
