Two cases are presented that demonstrate normal wound healing following bilateral reduction mammoplasty, in young female patients taking therapeutic doses of Isotretinoin (Roaccutane). Review of the literature does not provide evidence that Isotretinoin impairs would healing, nor that it promotes hypertrophic or keloid scarring in surgical patients...

“Innovation is not only the fountainhead but the life's blood of our specialty, of surgery, of medicine, of business, or of just about anything that is progressing, evolving, and improving. In the absence of innovation there is stagnation and ultimately there is decay. Cardiac surgery, particularly congenital cardiac surgery, must continue to evolv...

It is important to recognise that surgery and general anaesthesia are invasive and inherently risky. An often-unspoken reality of perioperative environments is that, despite best practices, sometimes patients do die during surgery, and many practitioners are left unprepared to handle such an event and its aftermath. Despite the rarity of intraopera...

Introdução: Uma das consequências da cirurgia bariátrica é a intolerância alimentar, geralmente vem acompanhada por náuseas, vômito, diarreia, obstipação e síndrome de dumping. Um desequilíbrio na microbiota intestinal que produz efeitos prejudiciais ao paciente é chamado de disbiose intestinal, que pode causar diarreia, constipação, piora nos sint...

Purpose of Review Thermal ablation presents a therapeutic option other than active surveillance and immediate surgery for patients with low-risk papillary thyroid microcarcinomas (PTMC). Here, we have reviewed the current oncologic outcome of thermal ablation in PTMC cases and compared it with active surveillance and surgery. Recent Findings Therm...

Bis Anfang der 80er-Jahre dominierten resektive parodontalchirurgische Verfahren das therapeutische Vorgehen bei Parodontitispatienten. Mittlerweile haben sich insbesondere regenerative Verfahren etabliert; im letzten Jahrzehnt nahm die Invasivität weiter ab und führte zur Entwicklung der minimalinvasiven nichtchirurgischen Technik.

Exploiting the affinity between stable generalized complex structures and symplectic structures, we explain how certain constructions coming from symplectic geometry can be performed in the generalized complex setting. We introduce generalized Luttinger surgery and generalized Gluck twist along $\mathcal{J}$-symplectic submanifolds. We also export...

Fungal colonization by aspergillus usually occurs in pre-existing lung cavities mostly due to post-tubercular sequelae. Colo-nization of a hydatid cavity is very rare. We hereby report this unusual co-infection in a 55 years old diabetic male patient who was diagnosed pre-operatively and was managed with surgery, anti-fungal agents, and anthelminth...

Sommario La ricerca del linfonodo sentinella con iniezione di radiocolloidi nel carcinoma differenziato della tiroide (DTC) è ancora oggi una tecnica dibattuta e non comunemente impiegata nella pratica clinica, in quanto attualmente non contemplata dalle linee guida ATA. Obiettivo di questa rassegna è, pertanto, quello di raccogliere attuali luci e...

This study was carried out to determined clot retraction on pregnant women. A total of 100 pregnant women attending antenatal clinic in Federal Medical Center Owerri were used in the study while 100 non-pregnant women were used as control. The platelet count was determined using the improved Neubauer ruled counting chamber and clot retraction time...

Background Posterior fixation of C1/2 has become more commonly performed to treat retro-odontoid pseudotumor (ROP). Here, we report a 60-year-old female with cervical dystonia (CD), whose ROP regressed and whose quadriparesis improved after a series of cervical intramuscular botulinum injections. Case Description A 60-year-old female with 30 years...

Background: Cranioplasty is the used method in neurosurgery for repairing cranial bone defects. In our environment, the most widely used material is cryopreserved autologous bone (ABCp). Objective: A retrospective observational study was proposed in order to analyze complications in patients who underwent decompressive craniectomy for brain trau...

Objective: To evaluate early keratometric and refractive results after intra-corneal rings surgery in keratoconus patients. Method: 50 eyes of 25 patients with keratoconus within stage 2 and 3, underwent intra-stromal corneal rings surgery by using the femtosecond surgical laser, one month after surgery, corneal keratometries and patient refract...

Objectives: To assess papilla level using different techniques in a second stage dental implant surgery. Materials and Methods: Thirty patients who received 45 dental implants were equally divided into 3 groups of 10 each. Group I patients were operated with a scalpel with mid-crestal incision. In group II, dental implants were exposed with a galli...

This paper discusses some geometric ideas associated with knots in real projective 3-space $\mathbb{R}P^3$. These ideas are borrowed from classical knot theory. Since Knots in $\mathbb{R}P^3$ are classified into three disjoint classes, - affine, class-$0$ non-affine and class-$1$ knots, it is natural to wonder in which class a given knot belongs to...

We initiate explicit computations of Vafa-Witten invariants of 3-manifolds, analogous to Floer groups in the context of Donaldson theory. In particular, we explicitly compute the Vafa-Witten invariants of 3-manifolds in a family of concrete examples relevant to various surgery operations (the Gluck twist, knot surgeries, log-transforms). We also de...

Background: Endoscopic transnasal surgery for tumors in the sellar region has become popular across the globe. However, postoperative nasal outcomes related to endoscopic transnasal surgery have yet to be described in detail. Method: Here, we introduce a modified microscopic-endoscopic bilateral transseptal approach for the surgical treatment of...

Acute appendicitis is predominantly managed with appendectomy, but can be treated non-operatively, leading to recurrence risk. Non-operative management has been more common since the COVID-19 pandemic affected the feasibility of performing surgery. This case-control study analyzed non-operatively managed patients in order to identify clinical and r...

This report details a retroperitoneal myxosarcoma in a cat that exhibited extremely aggressive biological behavior. An exploratory midline celiotomy revealed a left‐sided retroperitoneal mass firmly adhered to the hypaxial musculature. Histopathological evaluation identified the mass as a myxosarcoma. Following surgical excision, the mass rapidly r...

Wenlin procedure is a special operation designed by us. In the early stage, it was specially used for the treatment of pectus carinatum. Later, we found that it also had an effect on other protrusion deformities. Barrel chest can be regarded as the overall protrusion of chest wall, so it is also a kind of protrusion deformity. Because there is prot...

In this case study, syndactylisation has been a viable surgical option for patients with painful interdigital lesions. Further studies with greater number of subjects and longer-term results are encouraged. The authors are aware that a single case study with good results has limited value as evidence; however, we offer this review to highlight the...
