We researched the effect of nerve decompression procedures on diabetic neuropathy cases just in the following day after surgery as well as later, at 6 months. Twenty-four patients with diabetic neuropathy who underwent surgical decompression were entered into this study. The common peroneal, the posterior tibial, and the deep peroneal nerves were(More)
Vertical techniques have become a growing area in reduction mammaplasty. Although it has many advantages such as a smaller scar and durable results, some problems still persist. The Hall-Findlay superomedial pedicle technique is one approach to obtain better results but is not without drawbacks. Some modifications are suggested to overcome its problems.(More)
We compared the efficacy of silicone gel (Scarfade), silicone gel sheet (Epi-Derm), and topical onion extract including heparin and allantoin (Contractubex) for the treatment of hypertrophic scars. Forty-five postburn scars were included in the study. Patients with scars less than 6 months from injury were assigned at random to three groups each containing(More)
Acticoat, chlorhexidine acetate 0.5%, and fusidic acid 2% were compared to assess the antibacterial effect of an application on experimental 15% BSA, full-thickness burn wounds in rats swabbed 24 h earlier with a 10(8) standard strain of methicillin-resistant Staphylococci. The swabbed organism was recovered from the eschar of all groups except the fusidic(More)
In the current study, we evaluated the efficiency of using porous polyethylene implant to correct velopharyngeal insufficiency (VPI) in young adult patients. Ten male patients with VPI, aged 21 to 27 years, underwent posterior pharyngeal wall augmentation with porous polyethylene implant. The evaluations for VPI on all patients in the study included speech(More)
The treatment of an inflammatory linear verrucous epidermal nevus (ILVEN), an uncommon type of epidermal nevus, is still controversial. The use of laser therapy is a recently reported method. Although various results have been reported with the use of the laser in the treatment epidermal nevis, the authors have not seen any report on the use of the carbon(More)
We explored a swelling on the anterior surface of the right distal forearm of a 21-year-old right-handed male soldier and effort-induced symptoms of median and ulnar nerve compression that showed a reversed, three-headed and hypertrophied palmaris longus muscle with extension of Guyon's canal.
Vascularized composite allografts can undergo immune-mediated rejection, and skin biopsies are needed for monitoring of the transplant. However it is an invasive method, and requires processing time and pathological assessment. The purpose of this study is to use a new noninvasive monitoring method of the reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) to determine(More)
INTRODUCTION Prophylactic mastectomy is performed to reduce the risk of breast cancer in high-risk conditions, and expectations about reconstruction are too high. Implant coverage with healthy tissue and skin reducing as an envelope are two concerns in the treatment of macromastia cases. We present our results obtained with a prosthetic reconstruction(More)
