    ABSTRACT: Our aim was to assess the use of the internet for patients considering rhinoplasty, to identify the influence of the medical information acquired, and to review favourable and adverse aspects of the acquired knowledge online. A prospective study was conducted on 106 patients listed for post-traumatic or aesthetic rhinoplasty. We surveyed 18 questions to evaluate demographic and sociological data, and the importance of the information acquired from the internet. Respondents searched online for description of operations, contact with other patients, and with the surgeon, and for preoperative and postoperative pictures. Patients who were considering aesthetic rhinoplasty were given medical information by a third party or from the internet, and those who were having post-traumatic corrections were usually referred by their general practitioner. We conclude that the internet is an important source of medical information about rhinoplasty for patients, but it does not contain enough data. It plays an essential part, particularly for those patients having the operation for aesthetic reasons, in contrast to those having post-traumatic correction. Reviewing and certifying the plastic surgical websites would validate certified services. Independent, direct contact with the doctor helps patients to obtain more accurate, personalized knowledge. In addition, surgeons should support patients by giving them a list of verified websites, which would contribute to increased doctor-patient communication.

    ABSTRACT: To determine the prevalence of Internet use by patients considering rhinoplasty and to identify the impact of such information on their decisions. Prospective analysis of the impact of information received via the Internet by patients considering rhinoplasty on their decision-making prior to surgery. Eighty six patients, scheduled for post-traumatic or aesthetic rhinoplasty, received a questionnaire, consisting of 19 questions, which sought to evaluate their perception of the importance of the Internet information to them and also collected relevant demographic and sociological data. Respondents searched online for descriptions of medical procedures, information about how to contact other patients, pre- and post-operative pictures and making contact with a doctor. Patients considering aesthetic rhinoplasty received medical information from a third party or via the Internet. Individuals requiring post-traumatic surgical treatment were usually referred by family doctor. Patients planning nasal aesthetic surgery form their opinions after consulting friends and searching the Internet, which can act as an important medical assistance.

    ABSTRACT: Presently, breast cancer detection is delayed in Poland and, thus, the only other option for patients is amputation and breast reconstruction (immediate or delayed). Reconstructive methods are based on using the patient's own tissue (pedicled or free myocutaneous flaps) or implants (a tissue expander, which is later exchanged for a prosthesis or an expandable implant). To evaluate the aesthetic results of a delayed two-stage breast reconstruction with the use of implants (expander and prosthesis) in patients who have previously undergone cancer-related mastectomy. From 2006 to 2009, 54 patients (34 to 65 years of age) underwent reconstruction at least one year after their mastectomy and adjuvant chemotherapy; three women also received x-ray therapy. All women underwent a two-stage treatment with a tissue expander, which was later exchanged for a prosthesis. Outcomes of the surgery (evaluated by the physician and the patient at least six months after all stages of reconstruction) were found to be very good in 42 patients and good in 12 patients. After amputation and x-ray therapy in two cases, a fistula developed, which necessitated implant removal. After amputation, breast reconstruction with implants (expander and prosthesis) provides good aesthetic results. The method is mildly burdening to the patient and does not cause severe scarring. Symmetrization of the second breast is often recommended; however, the cost is not covered by the national health system. In principle, earlier x-ray therapy disqualifies the application of implants. Dividing reconstruction into two stages (expander and prosthesis) allows for possible correction of prosthesis placement.

    ABSTRACT: The aim of this study was to compare the aesthetic results of post traumatic rhinoplasty among Europeans with populations of healthy Caucasians described in earlier reports, and to collate correct parameters of nasal shape in healthy representatives of both sexes and various races for improvement in aesthetic results of surgery. 3-D scanning of the face was performed in 54 patients after posttraumatic septorhinoplasty. Analysis of 3D model was based on two indices of the nasal proportions and four angles of the region from 18 anthropological points. Parameters of the nasal shape in addition to gender were compared to average values of healthy Caucasian population, described before. Normal characteristics of the nose among individuals of three races from previous studies were also compared to one another. In females, mean height and width of the nose as well as length of both nostrils was smaller. Neither were there any significant differences in width of the nostrils and length of the nasal pyramid nor nasal prominence. Nasal proportions were similar in both sexes. Some of the nasal angles differed in addition to gender. Posttraumatic rhinoplasty resulted in correct shape of the nose similar to the healthy Caucasian population. The aesthetic nose differ among healthy individuals of the three races analysed. While preoperative planning is important, knowledge of the normal values of parameters characterising shape in both genders is equally important as the individual differences in relation to the whole face.

    ABSTRACT: Tumoural angiogenesis is essential for the growth and spread of breast cancer cells. Therefore the aim of this study was to assess the diagnostic performance of angiogenesis markers in tumours and there reflecting levels in serum of breast cancer patients. Angiogenin, Ang2, fibroblast growth factor basic, intercellular adhesion molecule (ICAM)-1, keratinocyte growth factor (KGF), platelet-derived growth factor-BB, and VEGF-A were measured using a FASTQuant angiogenic growth factor multiplex protein assay. We observed that breast cancer tumours exhibited high levels of PDGF-BB, bFGF and VEGF, and extremely high levels of TIMP-1 and Ang-2, whereas in serum we found significantly higher levels of Ang-2, PDGF-BB, bFGF, ICAM-1 and VEGF in patients with breast cancer compared to the benign breast diseases patients. Moreover, some of these angiogenesis markers evaluated in tumour and serum of breast cancer patients exhibited association with standard clinical parameters, ER status as well as MVD of tumours. Angiogenesis markers play important roles in tumour growth, invasion and metastasis. Our results suggest that analysis of angiogenesis markers in tumour and serum of breast cancer patients using multiplex protein assay can improve diagnosis and prognosis in this diseases.

    ABSTRACT: Hypertrophy of labia minora is a variant of normal anatomy. The enlargement can be unilateral or bilateral and is sometimes asymmetric. Hypertrophy of the labia minora may be attributed to mechanical irritation and endocrine diseases. Labia minora longer than 5 cm is a functional and aesthetic problem for many women. Surgical treatment is performed at the request of the patient and based on surgical reduction of labia minora. The goal of this paper is to present our own experiences in labia minora reduction. Twenty-one patients with labia minora hypertrophy aged from 18 to 35, were operated. Hypertrophy was bilateral in all cases but asymmetrical in 5. We have observed that labia majora were smaller than normally and even after labioplasty did not contact in the midline. We performed elliptical resection of the protuberant segment of the hypertrophic labium. We obtained good aesthetic and functional results. All patients were fully satisfied with the outcome. Hypertrophy of labia minora is not a pathologic condition but rather a variant of normal anatomy. Indication of the operation is psychical and functional discomfort. Elliptical resection of the protuberant tissue is a safe method of treatment.

    ABSTRACT: Introduction: Port-wine stains are the most common vascular malformations, occurring mostly on the head and neck, which in comparison with vascular tumours do not involute spontaneously. They cause aesthetic and therapeutic problems. Treatments of choice are laser therapy and in special cases surgery. The cause of port-wine stains' formation is disturbances of morphogenesis, probably as a consequence of external and genetic factors. Aim: To analyse cases with these lesions considering pathomorphology, coexistence of congenital syndromes and assessment of surgical treatment. Material and methods: The study group consisted of 187 patients with port-wine stains aged 0.5-70 years treated in the Department of Plastic Surgery, Medical University of Lodz in the years 1990-2009. We assessed location and morphology of the lesions, coexistence of other congenital anomalies and pathogenesis. Results: In our group women were affected twice as often as boys. Port-wine stains in 70% were situated unilaterally on the face and neck, particularly in dermatome V2. We found Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome in two patients and Sturge-Weber syndrome in one case. Surgical management included excision of the lesions together with local plasty or skin grafts. Postoperative results in the studied group were satisfied. Conclusions: More frequent occurrence of port-wine stains in women was observed. Most often distribution of the lesion was the face and neck in the area supplied by the maxillary branch of the trigeminal nerve. It was not possible to establish the aetiopathogenesis. The choice of surgical technique to liquidate port-wine stains depends on location, size and deformity surrounding area. Usually local flaps or skin grafts are used. In small defects the best aesthetic results have been obtained when we used full-thickness skin grafts from the posterior conchal surface and from the post-auricular area. Less invasive laser therapy is not 100% effective. Efficiency of this method depends on location, and morphology of the lesion necessitating repeated exposures, which is not completely covered by the NHS.

    ABSTRACT: Background. Aplasia cutis congenita (ACC) is a congenital malformation mostly of the scalp. Although the etiology of ACC is unknown, external and genetic factors are considered. Apart from preservative management, surgery is a recommended for aesthetic and life-saving indications. Objectives. Twenty-seven cases of ACC were analyzed with regard to pathology and therapy. Material and Methods. The study group consisted of 27 patients with ACC aged 2-17 years treated at the Department of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery, Medical University of Lodz, in 1981-2007. Morphology of the lesions, coexistence of other congenital malformations, and the etiopathogenesis of the ACC were analyzed. Different techniques of local plasty were used in the reconstruction after resection. Results. In this group the involvement of etiopathogenetic factors was not confirmed. One patient had other congenital malformations. The aesthetic effects of the surgery were very good. The histopathological pictures of the resected lesions corresponded with the scars. Conclusions. Aplasia cutis congenita rarely coexists with defects of deeper layers of the skull covering and other distant congenital anomalies. It is seldom possible to establish the etiopathogenesis of ACC. ACC in the form of a scar of the scalp can be managed surgically for aesthetic indications. The choice of reconstruction technique depends on the size and localization of the lesion.

    ABSTRACT: Background. Van der Woude syndrome is characterized by such developmental malformations as lower lip sinuses/fistulas and cleft lip and/or palate. The etiology of the syndrome is probably linked to a mutation or deletion in chromosome lq32-q41 or lp34. Symptomatic treatment is based on surgical repair of the cleft lip and/or palate and excision of sinuses/fistulas of the lower lip. Objectives. This is an analysis of 23 cases with van der Woude syndrome considering the pathomorphology, therapy, polymorphism, and the intensification of symptoms in successive generations. Material and Methods. Twenty-three individuals (15 girls and 8 boys) with van der Woude syndrome treated at the Department of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery of the Medical University of Lodz between 1972-2007 were the subjects of the study. Etiopathogenesis, syndrome components, coexistence of other congenital malformations, and increasing symptoms in families with van der Woude syndrome were analyzed. Results. Of 21 patients with the complete (sinuses and cleft) and 2 with the incomplete form (only sinuses) of van der Woude syndrome, 6 had other congenital malformations of the face, sexual organs, nervous system, bones, heart, feet, or abdominal integument. A hereditary background was confirmed in 10 cases. Lower lip sinuses were usually double and symmetrically distributed. Surgical repair was successful in 18 patients with lower lip sinuses and deformities and in 21 persons with cleft lip and/or palate. Conclusions. Lower lip sinuses may accompany any form of cleft lip and/or palate. Van der Woude syndrome is more prevalent in females and carried mainly by mothers. Escalation of coexisting malformations can be expected in subsequent generations of families with van der Woude syndrome. Genotypic studies presented in the literature suggest the occurrence of genetic aberrations responsible for van der Woude syndrome inheritance confirmed by clinical observations.

    ABSTRACT: Introduction: Self-inflicted scars are often located on exposed body sites and may accompany some syndromes and substance abuse. Treatment of these scars depends on location, size, cause, and time since their formation, including physical, pharmacological and surgical methods and psychotherapy applied as combination or monotherapy. Material and methods: There were 18 patients (8 females, 10 males) who underwent surgical treatment for self-inflicted scars at the Department of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery, Medical University of Lodz in the years 1999-2008. In the publication we review data on causes and pathomorphology of these lesions in the aspect of surgical treatment. Results: Early and late postoperative results in patients of the study group were good. Conclusions: Combining surgical, physical, pharmacological and psychiatric treatment gave optimal therapeutic results in patients with self-inflicted scars. A variety of corrective methods for self-inflicted scars gives them an acceptable appearance but without total elimination.

    ABSTRACT: The aim of this study is to determine female-to-male transsexual's (FtM) stereotypes created in female and male university students and comparing them in the analysed groups. 300 university students (from the Technical University of Łódź, University of Łódź, Medical University of Łódź) received a questionnaire with 10 pairs of the opposite meaning adjectives (good-bad, weak-strong, fast-slow, ugly-pretty, fat-thin, suppressed-loud, clever-stupid, light-heavy, active-passive, kind-cruel) related to a notion 'female -to-male transsexual' and placed on the extremes of the 7-point scales. The respondents also described each adjective as positive, negative or neutral. For most of the adjectives' pairs (fast-slow, ugly-pretty, fat-thin, suppressed-loud, clever-stupid, light-heavy and, in men's answers also good-bad and kind-cruel) the students placed FtM transsexual in the middle of the scales (the median was 4). Women significantly more often than men placed FtM transsexual closer to the adjectives "good", "pretty" and "kind", also they assessed the FtM transsexual more often as being "clever". 1. The Female-to-male transsexual is not perceived stereotypically among university students. 2. Men created more negative female-to-male transsexuals' image than women.

    ABSTRACT: Oculopharyngeal muscular dystrophy (OPMD) is an autosomal dominant muscle disorder. Occasional cases of autosomal recessive inheritance have been reported. The pathogenic mechanism of OPMD is unknown. The mutation of the gene encoding PABP1 protein has been detected in patient with OPMD. It consists in expansion of GCG triplet repeat sequence in this gene. Pathological alleles consist of expansions greater that 8 and up to 13 GCG repeats. Due to its prevalence of 1 to 2% in the Western world, the (GCG)7 allele per se is condidered a polymorphism. Clinically OPMD is characterized by slowly progressive blepharoptosis, dysphagia, limb weakness and dysarthria during the fifth or sixth decade of life. Cases of OPMD have been reported in 30 countries. In this report, we described 68-year-old patient with OPMD that has been verified by genetic testing. Dysphagia was occurred in the patient at the age of 28. The blepharoptosis, limb weakness and dysarthria occurred later than dysphagia. Additionally, patient's mother, older patient's sister and one brother of the patient's mother similar symptoms are presented.

    ABSTRACT: Body ornamentation is becoming more and more popular, especially among young people. To establish the sociodemographic characteristics of people with tattoos or body piercing and to analyze the motivations for body ornamentation. The questionnaire studies were undertaken in Lodz--one of the largest cities in Poland. The data was collected from a group of 968 people, 476 of whom had a piercing and 492 a permanent tattoo. Statistical analysis revealed that in the group of people with a tattoo, 36.8% were female and 63.2% were male. Contrary proportions were noted among people with a piercing: 78.8% female and 21.2% male. Body piercing is significantly more popular among women while tattooing is more popular in men. Among adolescents, body piercing is performed considerably earlier than tattooing. The main reasons for body ornamenting in the Polish population are the desire to enhance one's individuality and the need to increase sexual attractiveness.

    ABSTRACT: Background. Foreign bodies in the nasal cavity is not an uncommon disorder but may be left undiagnosed for many years. Foreign bodies are detected most often in the nose of children. Nasal foreign bodies in adult patients are diagnosed rare, most often those with psychiatric disease, nasal injury, and oronasal fistulas. Unrecognized foreign bodies can in time become coated with calcium, magnesium, phosphate, or carbonate and become a rhinolith. Rhinolith may be complications such as decubitus ulcer, nasal septum perforation or destruction of lateral nasal wall. Material and methods. The study group consisted of 35 patients with cleft lip and palate, in whom between 2003 and 2008 foreign bodies in the nasal cavity was removed. The time elapsed between the insertion of the foreign body, type of foreign body, symptoms, conditions of removal and complications were analyzed. Results. In all cases, the foreign body was prosthetic mass. The time elapsed between the insertion of the foreign body and its removal range from 2 hours to 5 years. In 3 cases a rhinolith was formed. The foreign body were successfully removed under local anesthesia in 11 cases. In 24 cases, the foreign bodies were removed under intratracheal anesthesia in the operating suite. Conclusion. In the patients with cleft lip and palate, before prosthetic treatment is necessary to ask about symptoms which may suggest existence of oronasal fistula. Before perform to impression is necessary to caulk the oronasal fistula.

    ABSTRACT: Introduction: Lipomatosis is the excessive accumulation of subcutaneous adipose tissue mostly on the extremities, trunk and buttocks, and sometimes it coexists with systemic lipomas. Aetiopathogenetic theories include defect of brown adipose tissue, alterations in lipid metabolism, and hereditary factors, but alcoholism, neuropathies, and metabolic disorders have also been also underlined. Treatments of choice are excisional surgery, liposuction, and lipectomy, or lipolysis sometimes together with a reducing diet, and pharmacological therapy. Material and methods: There were 6 patients who underwent surgical treatment for multiple lipomas at the Department of Plastic Surgery, Medical University of Łódź in the years 1999-2008. We analysed aetiopathogenesis of the lipomatosis, coexistence of other anomalies, and methods of surgical management of the tumours. Results: Postoperative results in patients of the studied group were good. Conclusions: We confirmed neither the influence of aetiopathogenetic factors nor the coexistence of similar systemic disorders.

    ABSTRACT: Introduction: Photodynamic diagnosis of tumours is a new procedure utilizing the combined action of light and a photosensitizing drug. The laser-fibre optic delivery system allows the visualisation of superficial and deep localized neoplasms including malignancies of the skin, oesophagus, endobronchial tract, stomach, urinary bladder, female genital tract, and other sites. The putative action mechanism depends on evocation of fluorescence of a photosensitizing drug within cancer tissue (important for non-invasive optical diagnosis). Material and methods: Diagnostic investigations of cutaneous changes with the photodynamic method using 5% aminolevulinic acid and monochromatic light emitted by a Stortz lamp were performed in the Diagnostics and Laser Therapy Centre, Technical University of Łódź, from 2001 to 2007. Results: Topical ALA diagnosis has the following advantages: it is non-invasive, it is well tolerated by patients, it can be used to diagnose multiple superficial lesions, and it shows the border of the lesions well. Conclusions: The method of photodynamic diagnostics does not replace the necessity of performing histopathological examinations, which still are of basic importance, but the places of affected skin specimen sampling may be determined by a non-invasive method. Moreover, the method of so-called "optic biopsy", supplementing diagnostic investigations by determining the precise boundary line of the change, enables first of all total tumour excision, obtaining simultaneously an optimal cosmetic effect, particularly in the case of superficial changes.

    ABSTRACT: Treacher Collins syndrome (TCS), the most common type of mandibulofacial dysostosis, is an autosomal dominant disorder of craniofacial development The estimated incidence in the general population is 1 in 50,000 live births. This syndrome arise from the first and second branchial arches during early embryogenesis. While in 40% of TCS cases previous family history can be demonstrated, the remaining 60% possibly arise from de novo mutations of TCOF1 gene, at chromosome 5q32-q33.1. The TCOF1 gene contains 26 exons and encodes a 1411 aminoacid protein named treacle. About 116 different mutations were described in literature. Most of these mutations are deletions. Clinical features of TCS included: antimongoloid palpebral fissures, coloboma of lower eyelids, lower eye lashes, atypical hair growth in form of tongue-shaped processes of the hair outline extending toward the cheeks, high of cleft palate, macrostomia, hypoplasia of the malar bones or mandible, malformation of external era, otitis media, rare internal ear. The patients need multiple operations, conducted ordinarily in the following order: reconstruction craniofacial, auricular reconstruction, surgical correction of antimongoloid palpebral fissures, cleft palate repair, repair of eyelid. Apart from a surgical treatment, the patients require a combined multidisciplinary approach with participation of paediatricians, laryngologists, speech therapists and orthodontists. Since, the spectrum and degree of deformations related to TCS are extensive, a plan of management treatment needs to be tailored to the patients specific problems. In this report, we described 6 families with TSC The authors analyse gender, degree of kinship patients and change a developmental disorders extensive in the following generations.

    ABSTRACT: Photodynamic diagnosis and therapy of tumours is a new procedure utilizing the combined action of light and a photosensitizing drug. The laser-fibre optic delivery system allows the visualization and treatment of superficial and deeply located neoplasms including malignancies of the skin, head and neck, oesophagus, endobronchial tract, stomach, urinary bladder, female genital tract and other sites. The putative action mechanism depends on evocation of fluorescence of a photosensitizing drug within cancer tissue (important for non-invasive optical diagnosis) and involves photochemical destruction of tumour tissue membranes mediated by singlet molecular oxygen (important for destruction of tumour cells).

    ABSTRACT: Introduction: Neurofibromatosis type 1 is a phacomatosis causing pathological alterations in the skin and nervous system. Aetiopathology depends on genetic factors but in some of the patients we do not observe a positive family history of disease. Therapy is symptomatic - surgical excision. Lesions of the central nervous system need neurosurgical treatment. Material and methods: In the Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery Clinic of the Medical University of Łódź between 1996 and 2008 we examined 15 patients. Surgical procedures were performed in 10 patients (7 female and 3 male). The age of patients was 13-62 years. Results: In this paper we present a clinical and diagnostic analysis of patients with Recklinghausen disease type 1. The analyses of the examined patients show the change in numbers of pathological lesions in differences parts of the body. Surgical treatment was without complications but with good functional and aesthetic results. Conclusions: Skin lesions in neurofibromatosis type 1 should be removed as early as possible when the tumours is small. It is important for functional and aesthetic reasons.
