Lipomas occur anywhere in the body, but are rarely found in the fingers (Kalisman and Beck ). Lipomas in the deep palmar spaces of the hand are also unusual tumors (Oster ). Two hand lipomas—one in the deep palmar space and one in the thenar eminence—and two finger lipomas were found in our practice between January 2002 and 2004 are reported.
The results of surgical treatment of 100 carpal tunnel syndromes are discussed. With respect to paresthesias, pain, muscular weakness of the thumb and numbness, excellent or good results were obtained in 94%, 93%, 79% and 100% of the cases. There were complications (minor algodystrophy syndrome) in only 3% of the cases.
This is a review of reports of the reconstruction of scalp defects with free flaps. Most of these studies present only a small number of cases, or a mix of scalp reconstructions with free and local flaps. The goal of this review is a “meta” analysis of free flaps for scalp reconstructions. Age, sex distribution, time of reconstruction, causes of scalp… (More)
Tarsal tunnel syndrome is a well-known but rare entrapment neuropathy involving the posterior tibial nerve in the tarsal tunnel, a fibro-osseous channel extending from the medial aspect of the ankle to the midfoot. Posttraumatic fibrosis, ganglion cyst, tenosynovitis, tumor of the nerves or other structures, dilated or tortuous veins can cause significant… (More)
The authors present a case of spontaneous non clostridial gas gangrene and discuss the possible etiology, the microbiology as well as the treatment compared to the literature.
Two patients with vascular leiomyomas of the hand are reported. These lesions are probably not as rare as the literature suggests. There are three pathologic types--solid, cavernous, and venous type tumors. All are composed of smooth muscle bundles surrounding vascular channels.
Tuberculosis of the sternum is an extremely rare localization, which may pose diagnostic and therapeutic problems. Adequate treatment consists of resection of all diseased soft and bony tissues and of tuberculostatic medication. Two cases are presented. We have not found any similar case reports in the literature.
Two patients with familial dermal eccrine cylindroma of the scalp and the face are reported. This rare, disfiguring disease may represent a serious challenge to plastic surgeons. The scant literature on this subject is reviewed, and all modalities of surgical treatment are discussed. A rather conservative approach is recommended for less florid cases.
