During the past decade, many studies using platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or adipose-derived stem cells (ASCs) have been conducted in various medical fields, from cardiovascular research to applications for corneal diseases. Nonetheless, there are several limitations of practical applications of PRP and ASCs. Most reports of PRP are anecdotal and few include(More)
describe a case of penoscrotal extramammary Paget's disease with multiple lymph node metastasis. A 69-year-old man was referred to us with a one-year history of a painless erythematous skin rash on the penis and scrotum (Fig. 1). He first visited a local clinic and was treated with topical agents. Despite conventional treatment, the lesion extended to the(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to compare locoregional recurrence-free survival (LRFS) and disease-free survival (DFS) between patients undergoing mastectomy and immediate breast reconstruction (IBR) and those undergoing mastectomy alone. METHODS A retrospective review of patients who underwent mastectomy and immediate breast reconstruction for(More)
BACKGROUND Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP), a rare low-grade sarcoma of fibroblast origin, tends to extend in a finger-like fashion beyond macroscopic tumor margins. Therefore, incomplete removal and subsequent recurrence are common. This study aimed to determine the efficacy of wide local excision (WLE) for controlling local recurrence of DFSP. (More)
OBJECTIVE We describe specific surgical methods for angiosarcoma regarding extent of resection and reconstructive options and assess their effect on patients' prognosis. PATIENTS AND METHODS We retrospectively examined 14 patients undergoing treatment for angiosarcoma of the scalp at our institute between January 2000 and June 2015. Surgical treatment(More)
BACKGROUND Lower abdominal soft tissue transfer is the standard procedure for breast reconstruction. However, abdominal wall weakness and herniation commonly occur postoperatively at the donor site. To reduce the morbidities of the donor site, the superficial inferior epigastric artery (SIEA) flap was introduced, but inconsistent anatomy of the SIEA has(More)
The efficacy of auxiliary partial orthotopic liver transplantation (APOLT) to overcome the problems associated with a markedly steatotic graft in a living donor has not been fully explored. We have recently performed APOLT in a patient with alcoholic liver disease, where the only potential candidate donor was affected by 50% macrovesicular steatosis and 30%(More)
BACKGROUND Xanthelasma palpebrarum (XP) is a benign disorder manifesting as yellowish cholesterol-laden plaques on the eyelids. This paper presents the outcomes in patients with XP who have undergone surgical excision as the main modality of treatment. METHODS A retrospective review of patients who received surgery for xanthelasma palpebrarum from March(More)
Isolated fungal soft-tissue infections are uncommon, but may cause severe morbidity or mortality. Aspergillosis infection is rare, but the frequency in increasing over the last two decades. Here, we present a patient with cutaneous aspergillosis of his right elbow with unusual clinical and radiological features suggestive of a malignant disease, which(More)
Nipple-areolar complex (NAC) reconstruction is the final step in the long journey of breast reconstruction for mastectomy patients. Successful NAC reconstruction depends on the use of appropriate surgical techniques that are simple and reliable. To date, numerous techniques have been used for nipple reconstruction, including contralateral nipple sharing and(More)
