This month Rod J. Rohrich, MD, Editor-in-Chief of "Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery," discusses three innovative studies from PRS. The first hot topic article reviewed fenestrated ADM-assisted implant-based breast reconstruction to determine the effect of fenestrations on the ability of matrices to suppress capsule formation. The second hot topic reviews fat grafting literature hoping to determine which technique is best. And the final hot topic article looks at how Photodynamic therapy works against Hypertrophic scarring. Volume 136, Issue 4.
