We performed a study of intralesional OK-432 injection therapy for the non-surgical treatment of ganglions. OK-432 is an agent made from penicillin-killed and lyophilized preparations of a low-virulence strain of group A streptococcus pyogenes, which has been developed as an immune-augmentation agent for cancer therapy. Derived from an extract of bacterial(More)
The medial canthus is an aesthetically and functionally important area. Adequate consideration of the local anatomy is essential when reconstructing this area. We developed a combined flap technique with a simple combination of standard flaps for the treatment of extensive defects of the nose and upper and lower eyelids, including full-thickness medial(More)
There is no animal model of ganglion. We describe a simple and reproducible animal model of pseudocystic diseases. First, we experimented to establish a pseudocystic model. We used cylindrical glass implants (6 mm diameter, 30 mm long) to create fibrous capsules in rats. The implants were inserted in the subcutaneous tissue in the dorsum of rats. Sixty(More)
It is extremely rare for basal cell carcinoma (BCC) to metastasize, so it is often only simply excised. However, BCC may cause severe local tissue destruction, which often extends to surrounding muscle, cartilage, and bone; it is then termed "aggressive" BCC. We evaluated the safety margin and the reconstruction method in four cases of nasal BCC that were(More)
