BACKGROUND Adipose tissue damage of cryopreserved fat after autologous fat transfer is inevitable in several processes of re-transplantation. This study aims to compare and analyze the survivability of adipocytes after thawing fat cryopreserved at -20℃ by using thawing methods used in clinics. METHODS The survival rates of adipocytes in the following(More)
IMAGES notable findings such as trauma. Upon physical examination, the patient was found to have a protruded mass when she had her eyes closed (Fig. 1). Ultrasonography revealed that the isoechoic mass was 1.6 cm × 0.6 cm in size and had a well-defined margin and a fluid-containing lesion (Fig. 2). Under local anesthesia, we made a transverse incision along(More)
793 nail unit separate from the normal one. There was no adhesion between the ectopic and normal nail units. Thus, using a No. 15 blade, we successfully removed the ectopic nail plate including its matrix en bloc (Fig. 2A, B). On histopathology, the nail bed was slightly stained with the hematoxylin-eosin (H&E) dye. In addition, there was an underlying(More)
A 35-year-old man visited us with a chief complaint of painful swelling of the finger. A physical examination revealed a palpable mass, measuring approximately 2 cm × 1 cm, on the dorsoradial side of the base of the middle phalanx of the right index finger (Fig. 1A). Upon history taking, we found that the mass had formed 7 to 8 years before and had since(More)
BACKGROUND Liposuction is a procedure to reduce the volume of subcutaneous fat by physical force. Intracellular storage fat is composed of triglyceride, whereas circulating fat particles exist as cholesterol or triglycerol bound to carrier proteins. It is unavoidable that the storage form of fat particles enters the circulation system after these particles(More)
