Best Paper Award Winners 2018

Creator:   PRS Journal
Updated:   8/1/2018
Contains:  17 items

Editor-in-Chief, Rod J. Rohrich, MD announces the 2018 awards for the Best Papers in "Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery."

Awards will be presented to all winners at Plastic Surgery- The Meeting 2018 in Chicago, Illinois.

The Editorial and Publishing staff scoured data for all manuscripts published in 2017 to determine the number of full text article views, number of PDF views, number of times sent by email and the number of times the article was added to a personal collection on PRSJournal.com. The data was further calculated to represent the average number of times per month those activities occurred. This average data was combined to create a score for each manuscript, placing them on equal footing, independent of publication month. The articles were sorted by score, and selected based on pre-existing categories.

Emerging Author paper- First author and others on a paper who have been authors on fewer than five PRS papers. Only Original articles, experimental, and special topics are considered. Best Special Topic Paper category includes special topic articles in any sub-section of the journal, including "Plastic Surgery Focus."

Authors were not allowed to win twice, even for different papers or different awards. The Editor-in-Chief, Co-Editor, Editorial Board Members, and the ASPS Executive Committee were ineligible.




Breast Implant Safety

Creator:   Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery
Updated:   9/27/2018
Contains:  30 items
In this era of enhanced patient safety and outcomes and increased scrutiny of medical devices, the safety of breast implants in both aesthetic and reconstructive surgery has yet again become a topic in the spotlight. Breast augmentation is one of the most popular aesthetic procedures performed and implant-based breast reconstruction represents ~80% of all breast reconstructions. It is important for surgeons to have access to the data regarding these devices. This PRS Collection contains scholarly articles published in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery addressing this topic. Implant safety, longevity, complications and patient outcomes are addressed.

This robust collection highlights the science behind breast implant safety, and was compiled by Breast Section Editor, Joseph Disa, MD.

Outcomes Articles Collection

Creator:   Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery
Updated:   10/24/2018
Contains:  220 items
The Outcomes Article Collection was created to educate plastic surgeons on the expanding role of outcomes research in the field of plastic and reconstructive surgery. This form of research explores numerous aspects of healthcare including the broad outcomes categories of prevention (safety studies, systematic reviews), quality of care, patient reported health, and life and healthcare costs.

As we enter into the realm of value based care, it has become evident that a significant portion of U.S. healthcare spending is for services with blurred clinical effectiveness. Practice patterns span different specialties, and communities differ, making it more difficult to discern the links between the types of care being delivered and the outcome reached. Another issue is the deficiency of an evidenced-based understanding into what management choices may be most appropriate for various patient populations.

In the current healthcare environment, outcomes research drives decision-making and has implications on policy as well as influencing contemporary practice trends. Furthermore, it provides a significant perspective on how care is measured and delivered through an inclusive approach that respects patient preferences. Ultimately, if significant improvements can be made, adjustments can be shared with others to implement.

This is the core of healthcare reform and value-based care; achieving greater outcomes, and refining patient health, swiftly and competently. In general, these articles have outperformed other journal topics, again emphasizing their importance. It is the responsibility of the Journal to ensure that outcomes research is presented in a standardized fashion that is easily understandable. This collection will hopefully allow readers to make informed decisions regarding healthcare.

PRS Masters Series Video Vignettes

Creator:   Plasic and Reconstructive Surgery
Updated:   9/7/2018
Contains:  2 items
Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery presents a dynamic, peer-reviewed Masters Series of video vignettes and articles. The video vignettes, each approximately 2 to 3 minutes in length, contain the key surgical and technical elements to obtain consistent results in a variety of plastic surgery procedures, demonstrated by the innovators or masters in these areas.

Masters Series

Each Masters Series video vignette article is accompanied by approximately 10 bullet points summarizing the key elements in treatment planning and technical execution, as well as a list of classic references. These very compact, thorough, and educational vignettes will allow for rapid reference of procedures done by masters in plastic surgery.

The first video vignettes in this series appear in PRS’ Cosmetic section, featuring videos from the Baker Gordon Symposium.

We hope you enjoy this new addition to Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery as we enter a new era in medical publishing: immediately usable, technique-based, peer-reviewed, educational videos and short articles. Our hope is that the PRS Video Vignette Masters Series will inspire others to submit their short, high-quality videos to all sections of the Journal, and that readers will be able to take the educational techniques into clinical and operative consideration.

These articles complement the PRS Grand Rounds Facebook Live Lecture and Q&A on “Surgical Management of Lymphedema" by David W. Chang, MD, FACS held on December 14, 2017 on Facebook.com/PRSJournal at 8:00 pm CT.

Lymphedema is a chronic, debilitating condition that causes physical, social and psychological morbidity, affecting up to 250 million people worldwide. Unfortunately, no cure for lymphedema currently exists. Recently, with the advances in techniques and equipment in microsurgery, there have been major and exciting new surgical procedures that have been developed to help treat and reduce the severity and complications of lymphedema. These new microsurgical procedures, such as lymphovenous bypass and vascularized lymph node transfer, have transformed the way we manage lymphatic patients and have also rejuvenated the field of lymphatic studies both clinically and academically.

Evidence-Based Medicine: How-To Articles

Creator:   Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery
Updated:   9/26/2018
Contains:  22 items
Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery has made evidence-based medicine a major initiative to improve the overall quality of published manuscripts. Rather than the traditional uncontrolled case series and restrospective cohort studies, PRS strongly encourages submissions to emply the full spectrum of research methodology including:
• epidemiology
• outcomes questionnaire development
• large database analysis
• survey methodology
• clinical trials
• case-control studies
• qualitative research
• social sciences relating to plastic surgery


Many of these methodologies are not familiar to plastic surgeons and are not traditional research tools in this field. However, Plastic Surgery is an innovative specialty, and the creativity of Plastic Surgery demands us to continue to explore new avenues of research directions and methods in order to promote the full spectrum of research tools at our disposal. This collection of instructive articles are by no means exhaustive, but they will provide a template for all who are interested in conducting clinical research and who are not deterred by unfamiliarity with some of the research methodologies.

In the current era of comparative effectiveness and focus on health care economics, articles that assess outcomes and cost will be considered favorably for submission to PRS because these types of articles can guide the treatments for our patients. To provide the most optimal care for our patients and to distinguish plastic surgery as the scientific leaders in Surgery, we must fully embrace evidence- based medicine and the many creative research methods to help us research vexing questions facing our specialty. I hope that you will learn and enjoy reading these selected articles, and we will continue to update this list to help you engage in outcomes research and evidence-based medicine.
