SUBJECT A recent report from "Agence Nationale de sécurité du medicament et des produits de santé" (ANSM) assesses the rupture of silicone gel breast implants without proposing rules for follow-up and replacement of implants. OBJECTIVE To demonstrate that systematic follow-up surveillance of silicone breast implants could improve early diagnosis of(More)
Lip amputations are rare, and microsurgical replantation must be systematically tried to restore form and function in one step. The authors present a series of three cases. Revascularization of the amputated segment was obtained by arterial anastomosis with the corresponding labial coronary artery. No venous anastomosis was carried out, because no vein(More)
Women who have undergone surgical treatment for breast cancer often benefit from a contralateral reduction mammaplasty (CRM) aimed at symmetrization of the contralateral breast unaffected by the initial cancer. In our 7-year multicentric study (12 centers) of 2718 patients, incidence of CRM cancers (CRMc) was 1.47% (n = 40) [95% CI 1.05%-2.00%]. The CRMc(More)
OBJECTIVE To estimate the benefit brought by an early surgery management of pelvis region pressure ulcers compared to medical processing in a population of subjects spinal cord disabled. MATERIAL AND METHOD The studied population consist of 53 patients (62 pressure ulcers) divided into two groups: the group 1 includes 30 patients (34 pressure ulcers)(More)
Many authors use a preliminary orthopedic procedure before cleft lip and palate surgical closure in order to prevent possible bone distortion following the rupture of the muscle belts resulting from the cleft. Actually, this is generally not only an orthopedic treatment but rather a surgical orthopedic step which includes lip adhesion before the surgical(More)
Reconstruction of radionecrosis of the lower lumbar area is a challenging problem because of the difficulty of mobilization of the irradiated local tissues, absence of a reliable locoregional procedures and prolongation of the receiving vessels of the free flaps. The ideal treatment is a wide excision of the irradiated tissues and an immediate(More)
Salmon has described first the vascularisation of the posterior cutaneous nerve in 1936. Since, few articles have described the collaterals of the artery accompanying the posterior cutaneous nerve. The authors conducted an anatomical study on 20 cadaveric dissections with injection in order to define the collaterals of the artery. The findings reveal an(More)
INTRODUCTION Breast carcinomas are the most frequent form of cancer in French women. Following a total mastectomy, only an estimated 25% of patients wish to undergo breast reconstruction. After mammary volume reconstitution, the plastic surgeon often attempts to harmonize the two breasts by carrying out contralateral reduction mammaplasty (CRM). In the(More)
