Chronic hyperglycemia impairs intracellular redox homeostasis and contributes to impaired diabetic tissue regeneration. The Keap1/Nrf2 pathway is a critical regulator of the endogenous antioxidant response system, and its dysfunction has been implicated in numerous pathologies. Here we characterize the effect of chronic hyperglycemia on Nrf2 signaling(More)
We report a case of a life-threatening anaphylactoid reaction to gadoteridol. The reaction resulted in hospitalization but did respond to medical treatment. Resuscitation equipment and properly trained personnel should be available if these agents are being administered.
BACKGROUND Face lifting is one of the most common operative procedures for facial aging and perhaps the procedure most synonymous with plastic surgery in the minds of the lay public, but no verifiable documentation of patient satisfaction exists in the literature. This study is the first to examine face-lift outcomes and patient satisfaction using a(More)
PURPOSE De Quervain syndrome or tenosynovitis is a common wrist pathology caused by stenosing tenosynovitis of the first dorsal compartment. Multiple studies have demonstrated significant anatomic variation within the first extensor compartment. METHODS The terms "De Quervain's tenosynovitis" and "first extensor compartment anatomy" were comprehensively(More)
BACKGROUND Open tibia fractures are commonly stratified by the Gustilo classification, an orthopedic grading system that does not incorporate the presence of arterial injury when limb perfusion is intact. In the authors' experience, however, the presence of arterial injury appears to negatively impact microsurgical outcomes. METHODS In a retrospective(More)
PURPOSE: A lack of recipient vessels for microsurgical extremity reconstructions may result from peripheral vascular disease, trauma, or oncologic resections and can be managed by vascular reconstructions with arteriovenous (AV) loops, which serve as recipient vessels for free flap anastomoses. In small and large animal models AV loops promote angiogenesis,(More)
Sarday, M ay 6, 2017 moyamoya disease (6). Flaps included flow through radial forearm fasciocutaneous flaps (2), a flow through radial forearm fascial flap (1) and flow through pedicled temporoparietal fascial flaps (4). The superficial temporal vessels (6) and facial vessels (1) were used as the recipient site pedicle. Flow through reperfusion was(More)
RESULTS: Systematic Literature Review: Literature review yielded 18 papers with 222 patients who underwent single-staged reconstruction and 16 papers with 114 patients who underwent delayed reconstruction. Six included both single and delayed reconstruction. Since 2005, our institution performed thirteen AV loops, four as single-stage and nine as two-stage,(More)
BACKGROUND Venous outflow problems are the most common reasons for perioperative flap complications. The benefit of a second venous anastomosis, however, remains unclear in lower extremity trauma free flap reconstruction and warrants further investigation. MATERIALS AND METHODS Retrospective review of our institutional flap registry from 1979 to 2014(More)
