Two patients of 56 who were reconstructed with polyurethane-coated implants developed breast pain as a late complication and eventually required implant removal for relief. Although the cause of pain was not proven, it may have been due to contracture of the fibrous capsule which formed between the polyurethane and the shell of the implant. The complication(More)

The size of the omentum is variable and can only be predicted within the standard deviations. However, the lower limits of its size have now been ascertained over a large series and it is clear that it could be lengthened sufficiently to reach the vault of skull, mid-leg or mid-forearm levels in all cases. Of course, to do so will decrease its width. An(More)
We have reported a case of severe frostbite due to direct exposure to liquid Freon gas (monochlorodifluoromethane), a fluorinated hydrocarbon widely used as refrigerants, propellants, and industrial solvents. The patient was treated for severe third- and fourth-degree frostbite to the hand. The severity of the injury was apparently the result of direct(More)
The (R)- and (S)-optical isomers of 9 epoxides, benzyloxymethyloxirane, epichlorohydrin, glycidol, glycidyl 3-nitrobenzenesulfonate, glycidyl 4-nitrobenzoate, glycidyl tosylate, styrene oxide, glycidyl 1-naphthyl ether and glycidyl 4-nitrophenyl ether, have been compared for their in vivo and in vitro genotoxicity. The in vitro short-term test employed was(More)
The ultimate goal in microvascular surgery is to achieve improved patency rates while reducing complications of systemic antithrombotic agents. Using a described model of microarterial thrombosis, the antithrombotic effects of oral aspirin (ASA) were assessed in rats. ASA-treated animals (30 mg/kg orally) exhibited significantly prolonged mean bleeding(More)
Lymphangiography, using oily radiopaque Lipiodol Ultra Fluid has been shown to increase lymphedema in one-third of the patients with obstructive lymphedema and to cause lymphatic obliteration (demonstrated histologically). No effective element has been observed, although subclinical infection could not be ruled out. Allergy is another possible contributor,(More)
Investigations into the effects of prior silicone exposure on subsequent capsule formation around silicone implants assume particular relevance in light of the exponential increase in the medical application of polymers such as silicone. The inert nature of silicone has been in question with regard to its effects on the immune system, specifically whether(More)
A dose-related curve of wound tensile strength was derived following exposure to three doses of predominantly UVA (Ultraviolet A) radiation (98.3% between 315 nm and 400 nm, 1.7% less than 315 nm). Forty female hairless guinea pigs were divided into four equal groups: Group 1 (controls); Group 2 (40 J[Joules]/cm2/day); Group 3 (80 J/cm2); and Group 4 (160(More)
Between 1971 and 1977, 40 patients with orbital hypertelorism were operated on by the craniofacial team in Toronto. Results have improved as a result of this experience. Tomography in two planes has revealed four types of medial orbital wall deformity. Cephalographs proved inadequate to understand this three-dimensional problem. Mobilization of the orbits(More)
