Regeneration in the peripheral nervous system (PNS) is widely studied both for its relevance to human disease and to understand the robust regenerative response mounted by PNS neurons thereby possibly illuminating the failures of CNS regeneration(1). Sciatic nerve crush (axonotmesis) is one of the most common models of peripheral nerve injury in rodents(2).(More)
OBJECTIVES Incisional hernia (IH) remains a common, highly morbid, and costly complication. Modest progress has been realized in surgical technique and mesh technology; however, few advances have been achieved toward understanding risk and prevention. In light of the increasing emphasis on prevention in today's health care environment and the billions in(More)
BACKGROUND The authors hypothesize that early posterior vault distraction osteogenesis safely confers considerable cranial vault remodeling, sufficient to enable fronto-orbital advancement to be delayed to a later age, with improved outcomes. METHODS The authors conducted a retrospective cohort study of children with syndromic craniosynostosis treated(More)
INTRODUCTION While recent studies project a national shortage of plastic surgeons, there may currently exist areas within the United States with few plastic surgeons. We conducted this study to describe the current geographic distribution of the plastic surgery workforce across the United States. METHODS Using the 2013 to 2014 Area Health Resource File,(More)
BACKGROUND Preoperative surgical risk assessment continues to be a critical component of clinical decision-making. The ACS Universal Risk Calculator estimates risk for several outcomes based on individual risk profiles. Although this represents a tremendous step toward improving outcomes, studies have reported inaccuracies among certain patient populations.(More)
T ueday, M arch 8, 2017 METHODS: Patients who underwent Exparel injection and On-Q implantation following autologous reconstruction were reviewed. Primary outcome measures included: Patient Controlled Analgesia (PCA) dose/frequency/ attempts/rejections, daily pain score, required oral postoperative pain medication, and return-to-ambulation. Postoperative(More)
INTRODUCTION: Traditional frontoorbital advancement with a supraorbital bar is the standard technique for correcting coronal craniosynostosis. However, several reports indicate that cranioplasty using distraction osteogenesis can be an alternative. To maximize the advantages of distraction, preservation of the dura attachment to the frontal bone appears to(More)
BACKGROUND Hypercoagulable conditions are often considered relative contraindications to free flap reconstruction. This paper presents and critically examines a novel anticoagulation regimen developed to address this disease state. METHODS Hypercoagulable patients who underwent free tissue transfer between 2007 and 2015 were identified. From 2011, all(More)
