PURPOSE To validate lymphatic mapping combined with sentinel lymph node biopsy as a staging procedure, and to evaluate the possible clinical implications of added oblique lymphoscintigraphy and/or tomography and test the intra- and interobserver reproducibility of lymphoscintigraphy. MATERIAL AND METHODS Forty patients (17 F and 23 M, aged 32-90) with 24(More)
BACKGROUND Extended histopathologic work-up has increased the detection of micrometastasis in sentinel lymph nodes in malignant melanoma and breast cancer. The aim of this study was to examine if (A) step-sectioning of the central 1000 microM at 250 microM levels with immunostaining were accurate when compared with (B) step-sectioning and immunostaining of(More)
BACKGROUND The latissimus dorsi (LD) flap is considered one of the working horses within the field of breast reconstruction and it offers several advantages. However, donor-site morbidity may pose a problem. This article describes a new and modified technique for delayed breast reconstruction combining the use of a propeller thoracodorsal artery perforator(More)
PURPOSE To compare sentinel lymph node biopsy, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), Doppler ultrasonography, and palpation as staging tools in patients with T1/T2 N0 cancer of the oral cavity. MATERIAL AND METHODS Forty consecutive patients were enrolled (17 F and 23 M, aged 32-90 years), 24 T1 and 16 T2 cN0 squamous cell carcinoma of the oral cavity.(More)
BACKGROUND Preservation of the nipple areolar complex (NAC) provides the optimal conditions for immediate breast reconstruction (IBR). Growing evidence suggests the oncological safety of nipple sparing mastectomy (NSM) when neither NAC nor skin is affected by tumor. This paper presents our initial experience performing NSM and IBR in a selected group of(More)
BACKGROUND Minimally invasive parathyroid surgery in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) demands high imaging accuracy. By increasing blood flow to the parathyroid adenoma before injection of a perfusion marker, we intended to improve the parathyroid scintigraphy. We have named the technique stimulated parathyroid scintigraphy (SPS). METHODS(More)
BACKGROUND Massive weight loss after bariatric surgery often results in excess skin, which can lead to stigma due to appearance and pronounced physical and psychological impairments. This review considers the evidence base for post-bariatric plastic surgery and the treatment options that are available. METHOD The article is based on a literature search in(More)
We present our experience of bilateral total breast reconstruction using a double-sided extended thoracodorsal artery perforator propeller flap in a case series of 10 patients. Reconstruction was successfully achieved in all cases with few complications. The median time for surgery was 275 minutes (200-330), and the average implant size used was 350 cm(3)(More)
The aim of this study was to examine if a propeller thoracodorsal artery perforator (TAP) flap can be used for breast reconstruction. Fifteen women were reconstructed using a propeller TAP flap, an implant, and an ADM. Preoperative colour Doppler ultrasonography was used for patient selection to identify the dominant perforator in all cases. A total of 16(More)
BACKGROUND Inguinal lymphadenectomy is essential for regional staging of malignant melanoma in the lower part of the body. The procedure is associated with a wide range of complication rates. The objective of this study was to systematically review the literature for papers describing complication rates following inguinal (ID) and ilioinguinal (I-ID)(More)
