A variety of breast deformities of differing appearances can be grouped together within an extensive syndrome that is characterized by anomalies of the breast base and preferentially involves the lower quadrants. Tuberous breasts are the most typical, but not the only, form of the deformity. The authors studied a series of 37 patients who had breast(More)
Keloid and hypertrophic scars are 2 types of excessive scarring observed clinically that require different therapeutic approaches. The clinical course and physical appearance define keloids and hypertrophic scars as separate entities; however, they are often confused because of an apparent lack of morphologic differences. Nevertheless, clinical differences(More)
The tuberous breast classification proposed by Grolleau does not account for a minor form of the deformity characterized by isolated nipple-areola protrusion with a normal breast base. We have observed this minor form in six patients with normal breast shape and in ten patients with hypertrophic breasts. We propose an anatomical and physiological hypothesis(More)
Silver compounds have been exploited for their medicinal properties for centuries. At present, silver is reemerging as a viable treatment option for infections encountered in burns, open wounds, and chronic ulcers. The gold standard in topical burn treatment is silver sulfadiazine (Ag-SD), a useful antibacterial agent for burn wound treatment. Recent(More)
BACKGROUND Laser resurfacing has now become an accepted and important component of facial rejuvenation. With the introduction of computerized scanning systems, the actual laser resurfacing technique has been greatly simplified; however, the final outcome still depends to a large extent on the efficiency of the postlaser wound care in promoting wound healing(More)
Methods for handling burn wounds have changed in recent decades and increasingly aggressive surgical approach with early tangential excision and wound closure is being applied. Split-thickness skin (STSG) autografts are the "gold standard" for burn wound closure and remain the mainstay of treatment to provide permanent wound coverage and achieve healing. In(More)
BACKGROUND Morphological anomalies of the breast in adolescent girls cause considerable psychological distress. Plastic and reconstructive surgery offer the possibility of improving such conditions. The aims of this work were to define and illustrate the various types of anomalies, clarify their distribution and present the repair methods that can be used(More)
BACKGROUND Capsular contracture (CC) is the most frequently reported complication following alloplastic breast augmentation. At present, none of the available preventive measures are effective, and various treatment modalities have been advocated. Reduction of the inflammatory process is critical for successful treatment. Late intracapsular(More)
AIMS This multicenter, multinational, randomized, double-blind, controlled, parallel-group study, was designed to assess the efficacy and safety of a fixed combination topical medicinal product, containing 0.2% hyaluronic acid and 1% silver sulfadiazine (HA-SSD) (Connettivina Plus cream) versus 1% silver sulfadiazine cream alone (SSD), in the treatment of(More)
