We present findings of anomalous musculotendinous anatomy in a patient having exploration of an acute volar wrist laceration. Surgical dissection demonstrated supernumerary flexor carpi radialis brevis and flexor carpi ulnaris brevis muscle bellies crossing the radiocarpal and ulnocarpal joints, in addition to injuries to several normal tendons and nerves.(More)
Capsular contracture remains a common and preventable complication of implanted breast prostheses. As our understanding of the pathophysiology continues to develop, it is prudent to reexamine existing beliefs in a contemporary context. This article presents a current summary of clinical and laboratory evidence, expressed as an interaction between(More)
Fournier's gangrene is a polymicrobial necrotising soft tissue infection (NSTI) affecting the perineum and scrotum. It is rapidly progressive and destructive, and is associated with high morbidity and mortality. Management protocol includes prompt diagnosis, early institution of antibiotic therapy and adequate wound debridement, usually requiring multiple(More)
BACKGROUND Despite documented cases of infectious disease transmission to medical staff via conjunctival contamination and widespread recommendation of protective eyewear use during surgical procedures, a large number of surgeons rely on their prescription spectacles as sole eye protection.

Renal angiomyolipomas are benign neoplasms composed of varying amounts of adipose tissue, smooth muscles and blood vessels. They typically contain macroscopic fat, which is seen as negative attenuation on computed tomography. Calcification and scarring is rarely seen in renal angiomyolipomas. We report the case of a 40-year-old man who was found to have a(More)
The allocation and management of physical storage structures in relational database systems is a timeconsuming manual process undertaken by database administrators. If datafiles, redo logs and control files exceed the available disk space on a volume, then new space will need to physically allocated on a new device. This reduces availability due to(More)
Decompression sickness (DCS) is manifested in a myriad of symptoms, and can affect any part of the body. It is attributed to the formation of inert gas bubbles in the blood and tissues. Following a diving incident, the pathogenesis of DCS is a result of mechanical obstruction caused by the inert gas bubbles and the body's immunological response to the(More)
