BACKGROUND Lipomas can be categorized into deep and superficial lipomas according to anatomical depth. Many cases of forehead lipomas are reported to be deep to the muscle layer. We analyze ultrasound in delineating depth of forehead lipomas. METHODS A retrospective review was performed for all patients who underwent excision of forehead lipomas between(More)
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)
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)
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)
Keloid is a scar tissue that undergoes recovery and excessive growth over the original wounds when the collagen is excessively accumulated in the dermis during the wound healing process. Unlike hypertrophic scar that is limited to the sites of injury and achieves a recovery over time, keloid is characterized by no changes in the size over time [1]. It may(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)
BACKGROUND Most nasal bone fractures are corrected using non-invasive methods. Often, patients are dissatisfied with surgical outcomes following such closed approach. In this study, we compare surgical outcomes following blind closed reduction to that of ultrasound-guided reduction. METHODS A single-institutional prospective study was performed for all(More)
