Mar 15th, 2023 - Dead space is an important risk factor for poor wound healing; therefore, it is important to effectively fill deep dead space through individualized tissue flap design during the repair of complex wounds. Adipofascial flaps have yielded good results in the repair of deep dead space wounds. The authors evaluated the efficacy of 3 kinds of adipofascial flaps to repair deep dead space wounds. From...

Feb 25th, 2023 - Cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA) is a small vessel disease, causing spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) in the elderly. It is strongly associated with Alzheimer disease (AD), as most CAA patients show deposition of Aβ-i.e. the basic component of parenchymal Alzheimer amyloid deposits-in the cerebral vessels. Iatrogenic early-onset CAA has been recently identified in patients with a hist...

Feb 24th, 2023 - Iliac bone flap with deep circumflex iliac artery is a common option in the treatment of Osteonecrosis of the femoral head (ONFH), and dissection of iliac bone flap is the key step for successful operation. This paper aims to introduce a new operative technique for dissecting iliac bone flap with deep circumflex iliac artery based on analysis of its advantages. A total of 49 patients treated by...

Feb 24th, 2023 - Cartilage injuries of the femoral head may occur following hip dislocation. As a rare injury, controversy persists regarding ideal treatment of damaged femoral head cartilage. Here we report the case of a patient who developed a large cartilage injury to the femoral head following anterior hip dislocation for which autologous osteochondral mosaicplasty with a graft harvested from the ipsilatera...

Feb 15th, 2023 - Allograft artery-infected pseudoaneurysm (PA) represents a rare but life-threatening complication of kidney transplantation (KT). A review of the literature, showed that nearly all these cases ended resulted in graft loss. We presented a case of post-KT-infected external iliac artery anastomotic PA successfully managed by endovascular stenting with graft preservation. Additionally, we reviewed ...

Feb 14th, 2023 - Transplantation of umbilical cord blood (UCB) is an attractive alternative source of hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs). The unique properties of cord blood and its distinct immune tolerance and engraftment kinetics compared to bone marrow (BM) and peripheral blood progenitor cells, permit a wider disparity in human leukocyte antigen levels between a cord blood donor and recipient after an unrelat...

Feb 11th, 2023 - The purpose of this study was to compare the outcomes of pre-Descemet endothelial keratoplasty (PDEK) and Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) in cases of endothelial decompensation. This was a prospective, randomized, interventional study conducted at a tertiary eye hospital in North India. Thirty eyes of 28 patients with corneal decompensation were randomly subjected to PDEK (n =...

Feb 9th, 2023 - Facial paralysis (FP) is a devastating condition that can lead to significant aesthetic, social, and emotional morbidities for patients. For some patients with FP, free gracilis muscle transfer (FGMT) is the best option for smile restoration. Masseteric-driven FGMT produces a reliable voluntary smile. Cross-face nerve graft-driven FGMT can produce a spontaneous smile, but this technique has hig...

Feb 9th, 2023 - Cross-face nerve grafting (CFNG) allows for spontaneous, involuntary facial movement for patients with irreversible hemifacial paralysis. This technique uses an intact contralateral facial nucleus and nerve as an input and axon source, allowing donor neural input to be routed through a nerve graft across the face. The sural nerve is well equipped for use as a nerve graft due to its length and m...

Feb 8th, 2023 - Adipose-derived stem cells are multipotent precursor cells with the ability to differentiate into cell lineages associated with the regeneration of tissues. The authors investigated the efficacy of AMHAT with 3D bioprinting technology in DFU. Twenty patients were enrolled in a clinical prospective interventional pilot study. The primary endpoint was a reduction in the size of DFU, and the secon...

Feb 8th, 2023 - Congenital heart defects are the most common type of birth defects in humans and frequently involve heart valve dysfunction. The current treatment for unrepairable heart valves involves valve replacement with an implant, Ross pulmonary autotransplantation, or conventional orthotopic heart transplantation. Although these treatments are appropriate for older children and adults, they do not resul...

Feb 7th, 2023 - To repair and reconstruct the secondary nasal deformity after unilateral cleft lip repair, we used autologous costal cartilage and expanded polytetrafluorethylene (ePTFE) to get a better nasal shape. Nineteen patients with nasal deformity after unilateral cleft lip repair were treated from July 2018 to July 2021. During the operation, autologous costal cartilage was carved and formed and then i...

Feb 3rd, 2023 - Sunken upper eyelid deformity results in an aged and unnatural appearance and is common among Asians along with the single eyelid. The upper eyelid volume restoration is as important as the creation of a supratarsal fold for patients with sunken eyelids. In the present study, the combination of orbital fat pad repositioning and orbicularis oculi muscle flap folding was established to correct th...

Feb 3rd, 2023 - An aesthetically sculpted malar, cheek, and jawline contour is a desirable feature sought out by many adults with central facial adiposity. This fullness, anterior to the masseter, can be attributed to underlying buccal lipodystrophy. An attractive central facial concavity can be delivered by performing buccal fat pad excision in conjunction with malar fat pad augmentation and mandibular contou...

Feb 3rd, 2023 - Over the past 30 years, there has been a dramatic increase in the use of autologous fat grafting for soft-tissue augmentation and to improve facial skin quality. Several studies have highlighted the impact of aging on adipose tissue, leading to a decrease of adipose tissue volume and preadipocyte proliferation and increase of fibrosis. Recently, there has been a rising interest in adipose tissu...

Feb 3rd, 2023 - The long-face morphology is associated with aesthetic concerns, and surgery is often necessary to correct excess length in the frontal plane, in the upper, middle, and lower thirds of the face. However, correcting midline facial length in the frontal plane alone does not provide facial harmony. This study introduces a novel approach to correcting long-face morphology using measurements in the f...
