Rhinoplasty is not so much an art, but rather an architectural undertaking: a methodical approach to reconfiguring the nasal components to give a proportionate nose that both pleases the eye and satisfies functional requirements. The dorsum and dorsal esthetic lines are some of the most important components of the nose in terms of esthetics and function.(More)
factors were integrated into a CRS ranging from 0–16. Predicted probability of SSM associated with each risk score was estimated. Predicted and observed risks of SSM were highly comparable. ConClusion: We present a validated risk stratification tool for predicting 30-day SSM following reduction mam-moplasty using data that are readily available to the(More)

The perinatologist is constantly searching for ways to learn more about the fetus, and ultrasound has clearly become a(More)
463 amines. In the early 1960's, Hillarp, Falck, and their co-workers developed the basic technique for visualizing amine-containing neurons. Treating freeze-dried tissue sections with dry formaldehyde vapor brings about condensation of the amino group of the biogenic amines with the formaldehyde. A new conjugated ring is formed, and the product fluoresces(More)
