Jul 30th, 2022 - We performed a novel hydroxyapatite (HA) prosthesis implantation method in which an HA implant was implanted into the scleral shell with an autogenous scleral cap. Twenty-six patients who had undergone the novel HA prosthesis implantation method and 32 patients who had undergone traditional HA prosthesis implantation were retrospectively reviewed. The postoperative activity of the artificial ey...

Jul 28th, 2022 - After anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR), a progressive process is followed from rehabilitation to the return to sport including a crucial step known as the return to running. Return to running (RTR) can be predicted by an isokinetic knee strength assessment at 4 months post-surgery. All patients who had primarily undergone ACLR with a hamstring autograft procedure between 2010 an...

Jul 27th, 2022 - Urethral reconstruction in complex hypospadias poses a significant challenge. We report our 10-year experience with buccal mucosa graft (BMG) in the two-stage repair of complex hypospadias and compare its results to the skin graft. We retrieved the data of 15 patients with complex hypospadias who underwent two-stage repair using the BMG at our institution. The data were compared to 13 patients ...

Jul 26th, 2022 - The use of tendon allografts for orthopedic repair has gained wide acceptance in recent years, most notably in anterior cruciate tendon reconstruction. Multiple studies support the use of tendon allografts and the benefits of its use are well accepted and understood. One of the important criteria of the use of tendon allografts is statistically similar histological and biomechanical properties ...

Jul 21st, 2022 - Intraneuronal inclusions of misfolded α-synuclein (α-syn) and prion-like spread of the pathologic α-syn contribute to progressive neuronal death in Parkinson's disease (PD). Despite the pathologic significance, no efficient therapeutic intervention targeting α-synucleinopathy has been developed. In this study, we provide evidence that astrocytes, especially those cultured from the ventral midbr...

Jul 19th, 2022 - Numerous studies have evaluated the use of autologous abdominal tissue for breast reconstruction; nevertheless, complications and donor site morbidity rates vary significantly. The study aims to compare the literature regarding morbidity of the donor site and complication rates of breast reconstruction with autologous abdominal flaps. The databases of MEDLINE, EBSCO, Scopus, Wiley Library, and ...

Jul 17th, 2022 - To evaluate the clinical utility of surgical reconstruction of finger pulp defects using a plantar flap derived from the toes, with vascular anastomosis of the toe-finger artery and the plantar-palmar vein of the finger. Between April 2018 and November 2020, 29 patients with finger pulp defects underwent treatment via the transplantation of pulp tissue from the second toe, with the plantar vein...

Jul 16th, 2022 - We present the surgical technique for arthrodesis of the subtalar and calcaneocuboid joints of a Sanders type IV calcaneal fracture nonunion via a distraction bone block arthrodesis technique with tricortical iliac crest allograft combined with reamer/irrigator/aspirator autograft from the patient's femur. A lateral extensile approach to the calcaneus was used for the exposure, which allowed th...

Jul 15th, 2022 - Meniscal allograft transplantation (MAT) has been developed as a treatment for meniscal deficiency. Despite promising outcomes, there are no real-time methods to evaluate graft survivorship and predict functional outcomes. Assessment of serum and urine biomarkers could be used to develop biomarker panels-prognostic (1- and 3-month postsurgical time points) and diagnostic (6-month time point)-ba...

Jul 14th, 2022 - The present study introduces a novel "anatomic recession ratio" (ARR) and evaluates the clinical outcomes of using a tunnel technique (TUN) with a connective tissue graft (CTG) for root coverage (RC). Sixteen systemically healthy patients contributing a total of 33 recession types 1 and 2 were treated with TUN + CTG. The predictive value of a panel of baseline clinical parameters (ARR) on RC wa...

The proposed technique uses autologous bone particles, deproteinized bovine bone matrix, collagen membranes, and concentrated growth factor membranes to create a multilayer barrier and enhance tissue regeneration. Four patients wer...

Jul 14th, 2022 - The aim of this randomized prospective study was to compare clinical and patient-centered outcomes of Miller Class I and II gingival recession defects treated with acellular dermal matrix (ADM) grafts and either vestibular incision subperiosteal tunneling access (VISTA) or sulcular tunnel access (STA) techniques. A total of 29 gingival recession defects in nine patients were assessed to determi...

Jul 14th, 2022 - The scrolling properties of the Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) graft are essential for surgical success. Currently, there is limited knowledge on what dictates the tightness of the DMEK scroll. The purpose of this study was to determine the impact of temperature and protein digestion on DMEK graft scroll tightness. For the temperature experiment, a total of 28 eyes were used ...

All adults who underwent the Ross procedure between 1991 and 2014 were included. Based on the total number of Ross procedures performed by each surgeon at our centre during this 24-year period, surgeon volume was classified as low (<25 procedures), intermediate (25-44 procedures) and high ...

From 2001 to 2021, 110 consecutive patients with active infective endocarditis and peri-annular abscess, underwent a cryopreserved allograft root replacement. In 100 patients (91%), the operation was p...

Jul 6th, 2022 - Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) is the primary surgical treatment for coronary artery disease (CAD). However, long-term clinical practice has confirmed the poor long-term patency of saphenous vein grafts (SVG), prompting surgeons to investigate alternatives, such as the use of radial artery (RA) grafts. In this report, we review and discuss the current status of radial artery application...
