13 PROCEDURE PERFORMED: Excision mass, behind right ear with excised diameter of 8 mm and complex repair 1.8 wound. I incised the ellipses as I had drawn it and then dissected down to the mass which was found deep to the superficial fascia of her neck. It appeared to be a small lipoma or possibly a lymph node. Hemostasis achieved using the Bovie cautery. I was able to remove the mass completely. Defects were created at each end of the wound to optimize the primary repair because thus I considered a complex repair. The wound was closed in layers using 4-0 Monocryl and 5-0 Prolene. Loupe magnification was used. The patient tolerated the procedure well. Pathology Report: Inflamed lymph node CPT Code(s): ICD-9-CM Code: 37 PROCEDURE PERFORMED: Excision of submuscular lipoma, forehead with excised diameter of 1.2 and layered repair. DESCRIPTION OF PROCEDURE:..An incision was made as drawn and then dissection was carried down to the frontalis muscle, which was separated in direction of its fibers and a submuscular mass was encountered and appeared to be a lipoma. It was dissected away from its attachments to the overlying muscle and the underlying periosteum. Once the mass was completely removed, hemostasis was achieved using the Bovie cautery. The frontalis was closed using 4-0 Monocryl and the skin closed in layers using 4-0 Monocryl and 6-0 Prolene. Loupe magnification was used. The patient tolerated the procedure well. PATHOLOGY REPORT: Lipoma CPT Code(s): ICD-9-CM Code(s): 38 PROCEDURE PERFORMED: Excision of cyst, right posterior ear with excised diameter of 1.2 and complex repair of 2.3 wound. DESCRIPTION OF PROCEDURE:... I excised the cyst as drawn and down well into the subcutaneous fat. I did feel like I was able to be the cyst completely removed. Hemostasis was achieved with Bovie cautery. Defects were created at each end of the wound to optimize the primary repair in addition to undermining, and because of this, I considered a complex repair. The wound was closed in layers using 4-0 Monocryl and 6-0 Prolene. Loupe magnification was used. The patient tolerated the procedure well. PATHOLOGY REPORT: Epidermal Inclusion Cyst CPT code(s): ICD-9-CM code(s): 39 13

14 PREOPERATIVE DIAGNOSIS: Recurrent lipoma right cheek. POSTOPERATIVE DIAGNOSIS: Recurrent lipoma right cheek. PROCEDURE PERFORMED: Excision recurrent lipoma right cheek with excised diameter of 2.5 and complex repair of a 3.2 wound. SPECIMENS: Mass right cheek for permanent pathology. INDICATIONS FOR SURGERY: The patient is a 56-year-old man who has a mass of his right cheek. He tells me that he had a mass, which sounds like a lipoma removed in the past, so this has recurred. I marked the area for its outline and I drew my planned incision to give him the best idea of the resulting scar. The patient observed these markings in a mirror, so he could understand the surgery and agree on the location and we proceeded. DESCRIPTION OF PROCEDURE: The area was infiltrated with local anesthetic. The face prepped and draped in sterile fashion. I excised the skin as drawn and dissected down into the subcutaneous space and this mass, which appeared to be a lipoma, became obvious. I thus dissected the mass from its surrounding attachments to the subcutaneous fat. The underlying SMAS and scar as the area was quite scarred. I did feel like I was able to get the mass completely removed. This patient s nerve function was intact after the procedure. Meticulous hemostasis was achieved using the Bovie cautery. A defect was created at the lower end of the wound to optimize the primary repair and because of this, I considered a complex repair and the wound was closed in layers using 4-0 Monocryl and 6-0 Prolene. Loupe magnification was used. The patient tolerated the procedure well. 40 PREOPERATIVE DIAGNOSIS: Mass, left flank. POSTOPERATIVE DIAGNOSIS: Mass, left flank. PROCEDURE PERFORMED: Excision mass, left flank with excised diameter 4-. SPECIMEN: Mass, left flank appears to be a lipoma. INDICATIONS FOR SURGERY: The patient is a 27-year-old white woman with a mass of the left flank, I marked the area for incision. She observed the markings, so she understand the surgery and agree on location and we proceeded. DESCRIPTION OF PROCEDURE: With the patient on the right side the area infiltrated with local anesthetic. The flank prepped and draped in sterile fashion. I incised the skin overlying the mass as drawn and dissection down to the mass was appeared to be a lipoma. We were able to complete the removal of the lipoma. Meticulous hemostasis achieved using the Bovie cautery. The wound was closed in two layers using 3-0 Monocryl and 4-0 Monocryl. Loupe magnification was used. The patient tolerated the procedure well. 41 POSTOPERATIVE DIAGNOSIS: PROCEDURE PERFORMED: 8.7- wound. Lipoma, deep left flank Excision, lipoma, deep left flank with excised diameter of a and complex repair of INDICATIONS FOR SURGERY: DESCRIPTION OF PROCEDURE: The patient was taken to the operating room. Bilateral pneumatic compression stockings were worn throughout the procedure. General anesthesia was induced. IV Clindamycin was given. The abdomen and flank prepped and draped in sterile fashion. I infiltrated the planned incision with a local anesthetic and incised the skin and went through Scarpa s fascia and there encountered this large lipoma. I began dissection away from its surrounding subcutaneous attachments and actually went into her external oblique muscle. It was dissected away from the muscle. I did feel we were able to get it completely removed. Meticulous hemostasis was achieved using a Bovie cautery. I repaired the most superficial layer of the external oblique including its fascia, which was quite attenuated that far laterally with 0 PDS suture and then I used a 3-0 Monocryl to approximate Scarpa s fascia taking the bites of the deep fascia to eliminate dead space and because of these maneuvers, I considered a complex repair. I did create a defect at one end of the wound to facilitate primary closure as she had a developed a relative excessive skin once this large mass was removed and the skin was closed in layers using 4-0 Monocryl. The patient tolerated the procedure well. A loupe magnification was used

15 PREOPERATIVE DIAGNOSIS: mass, posterior neck. POSTOPERATIVE DIAGNOSIS: mass, posterior neck. PROCEDURE PERFORMED: Excision of subcutaneous mass posterior neck with excised diameter of ANESTHESIA: Local, using 3 cc of 1% lidocaine with epinephrine. SPECIMENS: Mass posterior neck, the specimen appeared to be a lipoma. INDICATIONS FOR SURGERY: The patient is a 29-year-old girl with a mass on the posterior neck. This felt to be deep under subcutaneous tissues or possibly submuscular. For this reason, I chose to remove this here at the outpatient surgery center so we could use cautery. I marked the area for excision and the patient observed these markings in a mirror, so she could understand the surgery and agreed on the location and understand the resultant scar, which I had drawn and we proceeded. DESCRIPTION OF PROCEDURE: With the patient prone, the area was infiltrated with local anesthetic. The neck, upper back, and shoulder prepped and draped in sterile fashion. I incised the skin over the mass and then dissected down to this mass, which appeared to be a lipoma. It was dissected from its subcutaneous attachments. Hemostasis was achieved using Bovie cautery and the wound was closed in layers using 4-0 Monocryl. Loupe magnification was used. The patient tolerated the procedure well. 43 THANK YOU!!
