BACKGROUND Vulvar defects result chiefly from oncologic resection of vulvar tumors. Reconstruction of vulvar defects restores form and function for the purpose of coitus, micturition, and defecation. Many surgical options exist for vulvar reconstruction. The purpose of this article is to present our experience with vulvar reconstruction. METHODS From 2007(More)
BACKGROUND This study was the result of a constant evaluation of surgical techniques and results to obtain excellence in primary cleft rhinoplasty. METHODS This was a retrospective study from 1992 to 2003 comparing the long-term outcomes of four techniques of nasal reconstruction. There were 76 patients divided into four groups: group I (n = 23 patients),(More)
The poor solubility of many newly discovered drugs has resulted in numerous challenges for the time-controlled release of therapeutics. In this study, an advanced drug delivery platform to encapsulate and deliver hydrophobic drugs, consisting of poly (lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) nanoparticles incorporated within poly (ethylene glycol) (PEG) microgels,(More)
Flap coverage is ideal for wounds exposing bone and tendon, but technically less demanding and speedier options might be considered for small shallow wounds and for wounds with adjacent tissue loss precluding local flaps. We revisited the use of autologous dermal grafting-in combination with vacuum-assisted closure (VAC)-for such wounds.Five small- to(More)
Recent studies have shown that infantile hemangiomas (IHs) undergo a rapid growth phase between 5.5 and 7.5 weeks of life and do not usually proliferate beyond 6 months; growth thereafter is usually proportionate to the child's growth. This review assesses the evidence for topical timolol as primary monotherapy for cutaneous facial IHs before 12 months of(More)
Extraarticular pigmented villonodular synovitis (PVNS) is very rare in the distal forearm. There has only been one previous case report of this disease in the extensor tendons of a child. We report a case of PVNS of the distal forearm that presented as two nodules over the radial aspect and a separate nodule on the ulnar aspect beneath the flexor carpi(More)
A congenital lip sinus is a rare condition that has been reported to occur in both the upper and lower lips, either in isolation or in association with congenital deformities such as a cleft lip and palate in Van der Woude syndrome. The prevalence of lower lip sinuses has been estimated to be about 0.00001% of the white population. Upper lip sinuses are(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate pharyngeal airway space (PAS; nasopharyngeal, oropharyngeal, and total airway) volume and the correlation of an obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and hypopnea syndrome screening questionnaire (STOP-BANG) with various mandibular setbacks during bimaxillary surgery and compare these findings with an age- and gender-matched skeletal Class I(More)
Surgery for constrictive pericarditis has become a rare entity now. Various non-cardiac surgical measures are sometimes tried to remove the calcific plaques on the surface without damaging the underlying cardiac structures. We report a case of severe calcific pericarditis in which the Midas Rex neurosurgical drill was successfully used to facilitate(More)
