Recent reports of breast reconstruction with the deep inferior epigastric perforator (DIEP) flap indicate increased fat necrosis and venous congestion as compared with the free transverse rectus abdominis muscle (TRAM) flap. Although the benefits of the DIEP flap regarding the abdominal wall are well documented, its reconstructive advantage remains(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate prospectively the prevalence of incidental extracolonic findings at computed tomographic (CT) colonography and to estimate the cost of their imaging work-up in male patients with high and those with average risk of colorectal cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS This study was approved by the institutional review board, and informed consent(More)
Clinical applications of three-dimensional digital photography include assessments of breast volume and contour. It was hypothesized that knowledge of preoperative and postoperative breast volumes might facilitate obtaining symmetry after reconstructions with autologous tissue or implants. Breast reconstruction was performed for 382 women during a 4-year(More)
Standardized, high-quality, preoperative photographs of the nose are critical for preoperative rhinoplasty planning, comparative postoperative assessment, and demonstration of surgical results. To produce these high-quality, reproducible photographs, it is essential to standardize lighting, to properly position the patient in standard views, to avoid lens(More)
In summary, we think that the intradermal injection of the tumescent solution with epinephrine, which produced a peau d'orange appearance of the overlying skin, resulted in superficial flap loss secondary to the vasoconstrictive property of epinephrine combined with the hydrostatic pressure of the injection in this patient within a superficial plane and(More)
