Article
Full-text available
The authors describe their technique for vertical scar mastopexy with a centrally based auto-augmentation flap. Since 2011, the authors have performed this procedure in 212 patients and found that this operative technique has allowed us to achieve reproducible aesthetic outcomes while minimizing complications. Vertical scar mastopexy with a central...
Article
See the Original Article here. Imagine you could create one tool to help aesthetic breast surgeons in their practice, what would it be? Would you try to design the perfect breast implant, an unbreakable biofilm-resistant device just soft enough to feel natural but just firm enough to never ripple or fold?¹ Perhaps you would develop a sizing tool th...
Article
Background:. Breast reconstruction is an important aspect in breast cancer treatment. Methods:. A comprehensive search of MEDLINE, Embase, and the Cochrane Library of Systematic Reviews was performed. Systematic reviews and meta-analyses that focused on breast reconstruction and were published between 2000 and 2020 were included. Quality assessment...
Article
It is with great pleasure that we discuss “The Safety of Operating on Breasts with a History of Prior Reduction Mammoplasty: Dynamic Magnetic Resonance Imaging Analysis of angiogenesis” by Park et al.¹ In this article, the authors performed a retrospective review to evaluate angiogenesis of the nipple-areolar complex (NAC) by undertaking a serial a...
Article
Full-text available
Background Breast augmentation is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic surgeries worldwide. Therefore, it is imperative to have evidence with high methodological quality to guide clinical decision making. Objectives To evaluate the methodological quality of the systematic reviews (SRs) focused on breast augmentation. Methods: A comprehensiv...
Article
It is with great pleasure that we discuss “Five-Year Safety and Satisfaction With the Lightweight Breast Implant” by Drs Govrin-Yehudain et al.¹ In this article, the authors reviewed a 5-year, single-surgeon experience employing a new lightweight breast implant (LWBI) in primary and revision breast augmentation procedures. The B-Lite (G&G Biotechno...
Article
Since the first implant-based breast surgeries were performed nearly 70 years ago, breast augmentation it has changed drastically. As understanding of breast augmentation has advanced, so too have the technologies and techniques used to improve results and minimize the risk of complications in breast implant surgery. This article reviews some of th...
Article
Background On March 11, 2020 the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a worldwide pandemic resulting in an unprecedented shift in the Canadian health care system, where protection of an already overloaded health care system became a priority; all elective surgeries and non-essential activities were ceased. With the impact being less than pre...
Article
Full-text available
Following vaginal trauma, most commonly vaginal delivery, women may experience vaginal laxity as a result of local tissue stretching and separation of the pelvic floor musculature. In addition to this generalized sensation of laxity, women may complain of decreased sexual satisfaction, gaping of the perineum, and excessive vaginal secretions. Since...
Article
Background Previous studies have reported decreased rates of capsular contracture associated with the use of textured surface breast implants placed in the subglandular plane during breast augmentation. However, since the publication of these studies, our understanding of the pathophysiology of capsular contracture, as well as the surgical techniqu...
Article
We describe our surgical technique for single-stage periareolar mastopexy with subglandular breast augmentation. We have performed this procedure in 85 patients since 2009 and found that this operative technique has allowed us to achieve reproducible outcomes in a single-stage procedure. Periareolar mastopexy with subglandular breast augmentation i...
Article
Background Despite significant growth of the global skin care market, many plastic surgeons do not offer skin care products through their aesthetic practice. However, skin care products represent a significant potential revenue stream for plastic surgeons, not only by generating revenue from product sales but by improving patient retention over tim...
Article
The transport of thermally injured patients can involve significant costs; however, not all thermally injured patients necessitate transfer to a burn center. The purpose of this study was to review transfers to an American Burn Association-verified regional burn center to determine whether the transfers were necessary and the cost associated with u...
Article
Recurrent or persistent macromastia can occur after breast reduction. This may be due to inadequate primary volume reduction, poor postoperative shape, and breast or nipple-areola complex asymmetry. Postpartum breast changes, weight change, and aging can also contribute to recurrent macromastia. The concern in these cases is the altered blood suppl...
Article
Full-text available
As more patients undergo bariatric surgery to assist with weight loss, the demand for post-bariatric body contouring surgery, to address both functional and aesthetic concerns, is increasing. However, high wound healing complication rates remain a significant problem for these patients. One theory is that chronic malnourishment and hypoproteinemia...
Article
Since 1989, the authors have performed vertical scar reduction mammaplasty on over 3000 patients. In 2006, the authors described their technique. Since then, the authors have made several modifications that they believe have improved both the reliability of the procedure and the outcomes that they are able to achieve. Key modifications are describe...
Article
Full-text available
Applications to surgical residency programs have declined over the past decade. Even highly competitive programs, such as plastic surgery, have begun to witness these effects. Studies have shown that early surgical exposure has a positive influence on career selection. To review plastic surgery application trends across Canada, and to further inves...
Article
Full-text available
Despite increases in medical school enrolment, applications to surgical residency programs in Canada have been in decline over the past decade, with an increasing number of unmatched surgical residency positions. We examined the current status of surgical residency in Canada and analyzed application trends (2002–2013) for surgical training programs...
Article
The use of peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) line for central venous access in thermally injured patients has increased in recent years despite a lack of evidence regarding safety in this patient population. A recent survey of invasive catheter practices among 44 burn centers in the United States found that 37% of burn units use PICC li...
Article
In many circumstances early burn excision and autografting is unsafe or even impossible. In these situations, skin substitute dressings can be utilized for temporary wound coverage. Two commonly used dressings for this purpose are cadaveric allograft and Biobrane™. Five year retrospective cohort study evaluating upper extremity burns treated with t...
Article
Fractures of the hamate are relatively uncommon, with injuries of the hamate body being the most rare variant. These injuries are commonly associated with fracture-dislocations of the fourth and/or fifth metacarpals and are together referred to as hamatometacarpal fracture-dislocations. We present a case of a 26-year old male who suffered a coronal...
Article
Fractures of the orbitozygomatic complex are one of the most common facial fractures encountered by plastic surgeons. Many would consider this to be primarily a cosmetic deformity; however, these injuries can be associated with acute life-threatening complications. Intracranial pseudoaneurysm, although rare, is a well-documented complication of blu...
Article
Intraoperative navigation is a tool that provides surgeons with real-time, interactive access to their patient's diagnostic imaging studies while in the operating room. This modality allows for anatomic localization and facilitates intraoperative planning and diagnosis. The application of intraoperative navigation to neurosurgery, otolaryngology, a...
Article
Full-text available
Subpopulations of tumorigenic cells have been identified in many human tumors, although these cells may not be very rare in some types of cancer. Here, we report that medulloblastomas arising from Patched-1-deficient mice contain a subpopulation of cells that show a neural precursor phenotype, clonogenic and multilineage differentiation capacity, a...
