Stapled Transabdominal Ostomy Reinforcement with retromuscular mesh (STORRM): Technical details and early outcomes of a novel approach for retromuscular repair of parastomal hernias

Conclusions STORRM represents a safe method to repair parastomal hernias. The unified aperture with stapled reinforcement results in reproducible repairs, minimizing intestinal angulation associated with traditional stoma passage. Early outcomes evidenced minimal complications and favorable recurrence rate.

Publication date: Available online 15 November 2019Source: Actas Dermo-Sifiliográficas (English Edition)Author(s): M.C. Martínez-González, R.A. Martínez-González, A. Guerra-TapiaAbstractCosmetic dermatology deals with the beauty and appearance of the skin–a most important element of body image. Treatments used in cosmetic dermatology (hygiene, hydration, protection, repair) aim to enhance the characteristics of the skin, its anatomy, its function, and its vitality, to produce aesthetic improvements. Communication with the patient is essential in medical consultations and we believe ...

Authors: Houschyar KS, Tapking C, Puladi B, Popp D, Duscher D, Rein S, Reumuth G, Grieb G, Branski LK, Siemers F, Lehnhardt M, Yazdi AS Abstract Human skin is an efficient barrier that protects the organism from noxious substances. Wounds destroy this barrier. Wound healing is a phased physiological regeneration of the destroyed tissue that ideally leads to occlusion of a wound, in particular by regeneration of connective tissue and capillaries. The Wnt signaling pathway is a highly conserved signal transduction cascade across the animal kingdom that controls basic cellular interactions in multicellular organisms. ...

BACKGROUND: Reconstruction of the pelvic floor defect caused by extralevator abdominoperineal excision poses a challenge for the surgeon. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to analyze the long-term perineal wound complications in patients undergoing conventional primary closure versus biological mesh–assisted repair after extralevator abdominoperineal excision. DESIGN: This was a single-institution retrospective observational study. SETTINGS: The study was conducted at a tertiary academic medical center. PATIENTS: Patients with low advanced rectal cancer undergoing extralevator abdominoperineal excisi...

Conclusions:OSA did not develop or worsen following primary palatoplasty. However, the oAHI increased by 5 or more events/h in approximately 20% of study participants. The presence of a syndrome was the only factor predictive of worsening OSA after palatoplasty. These findings suggest that palatoplasty does not worsen or cause OSA in most patients, and that nonsyndromic children are at low risk for the development or worsening of OSA.Citation:Bergeron M, Cohen AP, Maby A, Babiker HE, Pan BS, Ishman SL.

ConclusionsThis study shows that microsurgical lingual reconstructions are effective in patients with preoperative allodynia, but a small number of patients may have remaining allodynia after surgery. Large-scale, more detailed analysis of such cases is required.

Piezo1 is a mechanosensitive cation channel with widespread physiological importance; however, its role in the heart is poorly understood. Cardiac fibroblasts help preserve myocardial integrity and play a key role in regulating its repair and remodeling following stress or injury. Here we investigated Piezo1 expression and function in cultured human and mouse cardiac fibroblasts. RT-PCR experiments confirmed that Piezo1 mRNA in cardiac fibroblasts is expressed at levels similar to those in endothelial cells. The results of a Fura-2 intracellular Ca2+ assay validated Piezo1 as a functional ion channel that is activated by i...

To perceive their three-dimensional environment, cells and tissues must be able to sense and interpret various physical forces like shear, tensile, and compression stress. These forces can be generated both internally and externally in response to physical properties, like substrate stiffness, cell contractility, and forces generated by adjacent cells. Mechanical cues have important roles in cell fate decisions regarding proliferation, survival, and differentiation as well as the processes of tissue regeneration and wound repair. Aberrant remodeling of the extracellular space and/or defects in properly responding to mechan...

The expression patterns and functional roles of miRNAs in retinoblastoma (RB) are poorly understood, especially those involved in chemoresistance. Here, we validated the expression pattern of 20 potential RB-suppressive miRNAs and confirmed that miR-184 is the most significantly decreased miRNA in human RB tissues, as well as chemoresistant cell line. Bioinformatic and molecular analyses revealed that SLC7A5 has three binding sites of miR-184 and significantly increased in RB tissues. miR-184 negatively correlated with SLC7A5 expression in RB tissues and mainly target position 2494-2513 of the SLC7A5 3′UTR to inhibit...
