Abstract Autogenous materials used for Asian dorsal augmentation are temporal fascia, dermofat, solid block type of costal cartilage, and diced cartilage. The temporal fascia is used for radix augmentation or correction of minor focal depression. Dermofat, solid block costal cartilage, and diced cartilage are recommended for major dorsal augmentation. The vertically oriented folded dermal graft curtails use of the fat component. Diced cartilage wrapped in temporal fascia exhibits a lower resorption rate, and may easily fit into the contour of the dorsum. This graft is thought to have low predictability of final he...

You're reading REVIEW: The MUSE Brain Sensing Headset, originally posted on Pick the Brain | Motivation and Self Improvement. If you're enjoying this, please visit our site for more inspirational articles. Although meditation and mindfulness may be getting trendier, the tangible impact meditation has on the brain still seems very removed. We read about how meditation supposedly induces structural changes in the brain and enhances your mental health, but with the modern day bombardment of health and food fallacies, meditation can come across as spiritual fluff.  The dissonance many of us exhibit is that we feel incapab...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewBiopsy-negative rejection is a condition defined by a cardiac dysfunction with a left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) ≤ 45% with normal histology and with the absence of other causes of cardiac allograft damage. The purpose of this review is to determine the incidence of biopsy-negative rejection, the therapeutics, and the outcome in the light of new techniques of evaluation or detection of acute rejection in h eart-transplanted patients. Although rare, many physicians have once experienced this difficult situation. Even though it is considered the gold standard for the diagnosis of ...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewTo consider the relative importance of factors associated with post-keratoplasty endothelial cell loss.Recent FindingsLamellar keratoplasty continues to supplant penetrating keratoplasty. When host endothelium is healthy, retaining it with deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty significantly reduces long-term endothelial cell loss. Endothelial keratoplasty and penetrating keratoplasty differ fundamentally in relative rates of early and late central endothelial cell loss, yet at 10  years, their cumulative cell loss is similarly substantial. The greatest risk factor for post-keratoplasty endotheli...
