Comparison of laser-assisted liposuction and traditional liposuction combined with endoscopic surgical excision of grade II gynecomastia

ConclusionsEndoscopic surgical excision of grade II gynecomastia combined with traditional or laser-assisted liposuction can achieve satisfactory aesthetic results. Furthermore, the combined use of laser liposuction failed to show superior aesthetic results than traditional liposuction. However, the use of laser-assisted liposuction offers additional advantages such as intraoperative (less bleeding, less operative time) or postoperative either immediately (less pain, indurations, ecchymosis, and edema) or late as improved skin tightness.Level of Evidence: Level III, therapeutic study

CONCLUSIONS: The clinical polymorphism effectiveness outlined therein will be assured by diagnostic improvements suitable for driving treatment decisions. In light of our experimental results and literature data, the analysis of the SLCO1B1 T521C variant will allow clinicians to take advantage from a better treatment planned for their patients in order to minimize neuromuscular pain and maximize benefits.

Authors: Nakamura K, Sugai A, Saji E, Kasuga K, Onodera O Abstract Myositis generally affects the proximal muscles. However, we herein report a case of a 48-year-old woman with intractable myositis affecting the intrinsic muscles of the hands. Her myositis, which developed in childhood, was refractory to treatment with steroids and several immunosuppressants, causing walking disability. After experiencing pain and swelling in the hands for six months, she was diagnosed with myositis of the intrinsic muscles of the hands and tested positive for the anti-signal recognition particle antibody. Intravenous immunoglobuli...

In recent years, minimally invasive surgery has been widely welcomed by patients because of its small trauma, light pain and rapid recovery. In the treatment of minimally invasive surgical wounds, fiber deposition has the advantages of fast, convenient, disassemble free and low toxicity. However, due to the conductive nature of the human body...

A 72-year-old man was admitted to the hospital with diabetic ketoacidosis and acute kidney injury 3 months after receiving a deceased-donor kidney transplant. He had undergone induction immunosuppression with rabbit-antithymocyte globulin and took tacrolimus and mycophenolic acid for maintenance immunosuppression. Twelve days prior to admission to the hospital, right knee pain and swelling developed. Synovial fluid was aspirated and showed a white blood cell count of 1825, 61% polymorphonuclear neutrophils, and monosodium urate crystals visualized by polarizing light microscopy.
