One of the weak points in face lifts is their failure to fully correct the ptosis of the labial commissures. This article illustrates a new technique to optimize this commissural repositioning in face lifts by using the muscular balances of the lower half of the face.

The investigating protocol, which also includes transcutaneous pulmonary biopsy, allowed a diagnosis of lung adenocarcinoma that necroscopic findings(More)

Two recent cases of vaginal fibroma are reported. These rare lesions are benign, and symptoms, often absent during the early stages, are due to compression from the growing tumor. Treatment is always surgical, the only problem being the most effective approach. This is either by the upper or lower route, depending on the location of the tumor.
The author describes the characteristics of vaginal fibromas, as observed in one personal case and after a rview of the published literature. These tumors, which affect women during the period of genital activity, are not of frequent occurrence, and the principal signs are dyspareunia and metrorrhagia. The histological appearance of the tumours is very(More)

In ten cases the prolapse was sufficiently largee as to exterioris the uterus or bring it to of the vulva. In 13 cases out of 15 a larg cystocoele was visible at the vulva with(More)
Despite the customary absence of any preexistent lesion, aetiological studies should not be neglected, in particular intravenous pyelography and, above all, angiography. Wilst an attitude of therapeutic abstention has been the rule up to the present time, the indications of treatment may be modified in the absence of a local cause: - the small(More)
