A new technique for reduction mammaplasty or mastopexy techniques is presented, which the authors call the dermal bra. The surgical steps are described point by point. A series of 36 patients underwent reduction mammaplasty or mastopexy by means of this technique from January of 1998 to April of 2001. Thirty-two patients were followed; 28 presented(More)
OBJECTIVE To analysis various complications of 30 patients of breast augmentation by injected polyacrylamide hydrogel and discuss the treatment through periareolar incision. METHODS All patients were classified according to the different complications. Open suction technique and partial mastectomies via periareolar incisions were performed in all(More)
BACKGROUND Marjolin's ulcer (MU) is a rare malignancy arising from various forms of scars. This potentially fatal complication typically occurs after a certain latency period. This article attempts to reveal the importance of the latency period in the prevention and early treatment of the malignancy. METHODS A retrospective review of 17 MU patients who(More)
We present an automated interface, ROC Comment, for generating natural language comments on behavioral videos. We focus on the domain of public speaking, which many people consider their greatest fear. We collect a dataset of 196 public speaking videos from 49 individuals and gather 12,173 comments, generated by more than 500 independent human judges. We(More)
