Intraoperative Perfusion Techniques Can Accurately Predict Mastectomy Skin Flap Necrosis in Breast Reconstruction: Results of a Prospective Trial
TLDR
Laser-assisted indocyanine green dye angiography is a better predictor of mastectomy skin flap necrosis than fluorescein dyeAngiography and clinical judgment, and both methods overpredict without quantitative analysis. Expand
Sentinel Lymph Node Detection Using Laser-Assisted Indocyanine Green Dye Lymphangiography in Patients with Melanoma
TLDR
ICG dye lymphangiography is a reasonable alternative for locating SLNs in patients with melanoma, and four patients found to have nodal metastases on final pathology had malignant cells. Expand
Compression syndromes of the popliteal neurovascular bundle due to Baker cyst.
TLDR
Baker cyst is an important pathology for the differential diagnosis of popliteal neurovascular compression phenomena, therefore requiring accurate diagnosis for proper patient management and long-term follow-up is necessary to monitor patient recovery and prevent recurrence. Expand
Perineal Flap Reconstruction following Oncologic Anorectal Extirpation: An Outcomes Assessment
TLDR
Immediate flap coverage of the perineum was less likely to progress to a chronic draining wound, but had higher local infectious complication rates, which the authors attribute to increased comorbidity in the selected patient population. Expand
Laser-Assisted Indocyanine Green Dye Angiography Accurately Predicts the Split-Thickness Graft Timing of Integra Artificial Dermis
TLDR
Indocyanine green dye angiography may provide valuable information as to graft integrity and split-thickness skin graft timing at late time points as compared with LDI, but Range of LDI seems to be insufficient for split-Thickness graft timing or late time point accuracy. Expand
A prospective analysis of physical examination findings in the diagnosis of facial fractures: Determining predictive value.
TLDR
The data demonstrated a high negative predictive value of at least 90% for orbital floor, zygomatic, mandibular and nasal bone fractures compared with CT scan and none of the patients who did not have a physical examination finding for a particular facial fracture required surgery for that fracture. Expand
Prevascularization of the Subcutaneous Space Improves Survival of Transplanted Mouse Islets
TLDR
Free islets transplanted in the subcutaneous space of mice have improved survival in the prevascularized implant capsule, and allow for comparable function to non-diabetic controls, and this strategy may represent a safe and effective translational pathway for the application of sub cutaneous islet transplant in human subjects in the near future. Expand
Subjective Rating of Cosmetic Treatment With Botulinum Toxin Type A: Do Existing Measures Demonstrate Interobserver Validity?
TLDR
The FWS and SGA represent the current standard of cosmetic outcomes measures; however, when subjected to scrutiny they display relatively unpredictable agreement even among plastic surgeons. Expand
Comparison of Native Porcine Skin and a Dermal Substitute Using Tensiometry and Digital Image Speckle Correlation
TLDR
Using 2 different methods of analysis, it is shown a dermal substitute does not display similar biomechanical properties after adequate incorporation and major tensile strength differences are shown between normal, grafted, and Integra constructs under physiological conditions. Expand
A prospective analysis of physical examination findings in the diagnosis of facial fractures: Determining predictive value
Background There are >150,000 patient visits per year to emergency rooms for facial trauma. The reliability of a computed tomography (CT) scan has made it the primary modality for diagnosing facialExpand
