Lipofilling has been carried out in aesthetic surgery worldwide for many years and, more recently, in breast cancer patients to improve the results of breast reconstruction. While numerous published clinical studies have highlighted the advantages of this procedure, it remains of importance to be aware that it might also have potential down sides. With this(More)
In this case report we describe the use of a 2-stage approach to treat severe recurrent vulvar lymphangiectasia in a patient with Noonan syndrome. First, 3 functional lymphatic vessels were identified and anastomosed to venules in an end-to-end fashion. Then, in a second surgical procedure, the vulvar lesions were resected as much as possible and the vulva(More)
BACKGROUND Lymphaticovenular anastomosis (LVA) is a supermicrosurgical procedure that involves the anastomosis of a functional lymphatic channel to a venule. Although peri-operative care might be an important contributor to the success of this technique, evidence about optimal peri-operative care seems limited. This review aims to summarize the(More)
BACKGROUND Several options are described to treat keloid scars, none of them being 100% successful. Radiotherapy is suggested to have the most significant effect on recurrence rate. OBJECTIVES The aim of the study is to confirm the effectiveness of iridium brachytherapy combined with surgery and to evaluate patient satisfaction. PATIENTS AND METHODS We(More)
Lymphedema can be a debilitating condition, causing a great decrease in a person’s quality of life (QoL). Treatment with lymphaticovenular anastomosis (LVA), in which an anastomosis is created between the lymphatic and venous system, may attenuate lymphedema symptoms and reduce swelling. In this study, we share the results using LVA to treat breast(More)
SUMMARY The inframammary incision is the most versatile and popular approach in breast augmentation. For an optimal aesthetic result, the incision site should be chosen in such a way that the scar is carefully hidden in the (new) inframammary fold. Based on an assumption of the senior author (B.v.d.L.) that the Pythagorean theorem (α + β = γ) is suited to(More)
