This paper reviews a 5-year experience using polyurethane-covered mammary prostheses in the treatment of capsular contracture following placement of smooth-walled devices, primary augmentation mammoplasty, and breast reconstruction after mastectomy. The rate of occurrence of clinically significant capsular contracture has been reduced in all patient groups.(More)
The clinical records of 563 patients undergoing either abdominoplasty alone or in combination with other major surgical procedures were reviewed in order to determine the relative safety of combined procedures. One-hundred-seventeen patients had abdominoplasty alone; 230 had abdominoplasty with either an intraabdominal or major pelvic procedure with or(More)
The use of stacked polyurethane-covered mammary implants has proven useful in improving results in the correction of deficiencies of mammary form and projection that can occur in certain cases of congenital and acquired breast deformity. The method has been used in 57 patients (102 breasts). The rate of significant complications, including seroma, rash,(More)
We have found the central pedicle, free-hand technique applicable across the spectrum of surgical endeavors that seek to alter breast volume and revise the skin envelope for aesthetic and functional improvement. The rate of occurrence of significant complications has been low. The primary advantages of this approach are that (1) excellent pedicle(More)
The "split" gluteus musculocutaneous flap is a useful flap for perineal and ischial reconstruction. The flap uses the superficial 1 to 2 cm of the gluteus muscle, supplied by proximal parasacral perforators. It can be raised simply, quickly, and with minimal blood loss. Importantly, the deep muscle is left in place and remains innervated and(More)
Macrolides, lincosamides, and streptogramins (MLS) resistance genes are responsible for resistance to these antibiotics in Staphylococcus infections. The purpose of the study was to analyze the distribution of the MLS resistance genes in community- and hospital-acquired Staphylococcus isolates. The MLS resistance phenotypes [constitutive resistance to(More)
There is established association between oxidative stress, infections of genital tract and fertility. Genital tract infections may provoke increased production of free radicals and generate oxidative stress that can be involved in pathophysiology of a number of reproductive diseases and complications during pregnancy. The aim of this study was to determine(More)
