Recent reports of transient neurologic deficits have raised concern about the potential toxicity of single-dose spinal 5% lidocaine in 7.5% dextrose. Two cases of volunteers who experienced minor local sensory deficits after slow (60 s) injections of 2 mL 5% lidocaine via Whitacre needles are described. One case was a result of a double injection because of(More)
Forty-eight patients who suffered sternal wound infections following coronary artery bypass grafting were retrospectively reviewed over a 5-year period. All patients in this study had clinical signs of major infection including redness, pain, and purulence at the time of mediastinal drainage and debridement. One patient died 11 days postoperatively because(More)
BACKGROUND Optimal surgical outcomes in autogenous breast reconstruction require a balance between the reliability of older transverse rectus abdominis musculocutaneous (TRAM) flap techniques and the decreased donor-site morbidity of the newer deep inferior epigastric perforator (DIEP) flap techniques. This article presents an approach to autogenous breast(More)
A subset of postoperative recurrent clubfeet was isolated in a group of patients 4 to 8 years old. Twenty-seven consecutive patients who underwent redo surgery consisting of complete soft tissue clubfoot release combined with a calcaneocuboid fusion were reviewed for this study. Twenty-six feet of 27 feet in 20 patients had a long-term good result,(More)
Thirty-one fresh adult upper extremities were microdissected in order to delineate the regional anatomy of the ulnar nerve and artery at the wrist. Two patterns of division of the ulnar nerve trunk were identified: A and B. Three patterns of hypothenar muscle innervation-type 1, 2, and 3- and two patterns of vascular supply to the hypothenar(More)
The beneficial effects of SMAS flap manipulation have been clearly demonstrated for the neck and jowls; however, safe limits of subplatysmal dissection in the neck have not been established, and recommendations vary widely. Sixty patients undergoing rhytidectomy with an extended SMAS flap were retrospectively reviewed over a 5-year period. Five critical(More)
Although medial pectoral releases have been recommended as an important component of retropectoral breast augmentation surgery, there has been no study that documents the benefit or need for this potentially harmful surgical maneuver. In this study, 315 patients were retrospectively reviewed to determine the effect of medial pectoral muscle releases on(More)
This is a retrospective review of 66 patients with grade II breast ptosis who underwent augmentation mammaplasty from January 1996 to January 2001. Of these 66 patients, 17 were augmented using a periareolar approach, and 49 were augmented using an inframammary approach. All patients had textured saline implants, and 64 of 66 patients had the implants(More)
