A retrospective study was done on a population of 258 women who had undergone surgery for abdominal dermolipectomy between January of 1991 and May of 1996. The postoperative complications and flaws seen at long-term follow-up are discussed. The surgical techniques used, with or without lipoaspiration, were the infraumbilical plasty and full plasties with(More)
A 52 year old male underwent chemonucleolysis under general anesthesia. Half an hour after the injection of 3000 units of chymopapain at L4-L5 level the patient developed a profound drop in blood pressure to an unobtainable level. The hemodynamic conditions remained unstable for 12 h in spite of treatment, blood pressure around 80 mm Hg for some hours but a(More)
Large scalp defects that include periosteum set surgeons problems in closing the defect and in reconstruction of the hair-bearing area. The external tissue extension (ETE) technique together with a skin expansion device allowed us to reduce a 12 x 7.5 cm scalp defect and to construct a self-closing flap.
One of the treatments for pain in patients with unresectable pancreatic cancer is chemical splanchnicectomy by phenol. We report two cases of severe cardiac arrhythmia followed by circulatory arrest, during intraoperative chemical splanchnicectomy. The cardiac toxicity of phenol is known in plastic surgery (face peeling). The reasons for this toxicity are(More)
Le pneumothorax est une complication exceptionnelle de la coloscopie, en général associé à une perforation péritonéale. L’existence d’une hernie diaphragmatique avec issue du côlon dans le thorax est une cause favorisante le plus souvent méconnue responsable de difficultés de progression avec un risque de perforation accrue de l’anse colique herniée et de(More)
BACKGROUND After mastectomy for breast cancer, especially when combined with radiation, inadequate wall thickness and insufficient elasticity of the skin are problems frequently encountered in breast reconstruction. We describe a reconstruction method using a latissimus dorsi muscle flap, followed by expansion, that creates no additional scar. METHODS(More)
