The incidence of lymphedema following treatment for breast cancer ranges between 10 and 50% after complete axillary dissection and gives rise to severe functional discomfort in patients. Results of lymphaticovenous anastomoses (LVA) in surgical treatment of lymphedema appear to be favorable. However, the available literature on this topic is scarce, often(More)
BACKGROUND The concept of the facial artery perforator flap was developed for improved freedom during the reconstruction of perioral and perinasal defects. This flap enables tailor-made reconstruction and a shift from the traditional two-stage procedure to a one-stage technique. In this cadaveric study, the authors quantify the number, length, and diameter(More)
Liquid silicone is a permanent filler. Its use to augment soft tissues for aesthetic purposes was widespread worldwide in the 1960s. Although initially considered to be biologically inert, this substance may cause, after its injection, an inflammatory granulomatous effect of variable severity and, in very rare cases, a severe hypercalcemia, which can be(More)
Uterine leiomyoma in torsion is an uncommon emergency and mimics generalized peritonitis. We report the case of a 62-year-old woman with a huge subserous fibroid in torsion. The lesion was removed surgically with the uterus and ovaries. Imaging is an essential tool in the diagnosis of myomata and should serve to exclude other diseases, especially malignancy.
INTRODUCTION Tumors of the upper outer quadrant of the breast represent the most common location of breast malignant tumors. Although the choice of surgical approach should be dictated primarily by an imperative of oncological safety, esthetic and practical considerations of the surgeon as well as the esthetic demands of patients have become increasingly(More)
Male face lifting is the cosmetic surgery which has witnessed the greatest rise in demand in recent years. A result of social evolution and development of non-surgical techniques for facial rejuvenation, this intervention represents a real challenge for the surgeon who operates mainly on women. Man has specific characteristics which include differences in(More)
BACKGROUND Autologous fat grafting has become an essential procedure in breast reconstructive surgery. However, molecular knowledge of different adipose donor sites remains inadequate. Tissue regeneration studies have shown that it is essential to match the Hox code of transplanted cells and host tissues to achieve correct repair. This study aims to provide(More)
Glomus tumors are rare and benign hamartomas, arising from neuro-myo-arterial proliferation and deriving from mesenchymal origin. As they have a long-term impact on the individual's quality of life, the primary complaint is unbearable pain. The aim of this study was to assess the clinical and functional outcomes of their surgical treatment, and to review(More)
No Level Assigned This journal requires that authors assign a level of evidence to each submission to which EvidenceBased Medicine rankings are applicable. This excludes Review Articles, Book Reviews, and manuscripts that concern Basic Science, Animal Studies, Cadaver Studies, and Experimental Studies.
