Liposuction of the Neck: Low Incidence of Nerve Injury and Other Complications in 987 Patients.

We present a large case series (n=987) performed by three dermatologic surgeons. Five patients developed temporary post-operative marginal mandibular dysfunction, one patient had submandibular gland ptosis and one patient had arterial bleeding. Seroma, skin necrosis, scarring, and hyperpigmentation did not occur following neck liposuction. Neck liposuction performed with tumescent local anesthesia is a safe procedure associated with a low incidence of nerve injury and other complications. J Drugs Dermatol. 2018;17(1):30-34..

This study analysed the application of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in the angiogenesis of mature root canals. Material and methods Upper first molars of twelve 13-week old Wistar male rats were used. The root pulp of the mesiobuccal canal was removed and the root canal instrumented with K-files up to size #25. Periapical bleeding was induced into the root canal by introducing a #15 K-file beyond the apex. The teeth on the right side of the arch were filled up with blood clot (G1), whereas those on the left side were filled up with blood clot plus 50 ng/ml of VEGF (G2). Teeth were sealed with light-curing glas...

Eggs have been a taboo food for decades, since they are high in cholesterol, but the latest science suggests that they might not be as unhealthy as once thought. In a study published in the journal Heart, researchers from China found that people who ate an average of one egg per day had lower rates of heart disease and an even lower risk of having a bleeding stroke than people who did not eat eggs. The study included nearly half a million people in China who filled out questionnaires about their egg-eating habits and were followed for nine years on average for heart-related health events. People who said they ate eggs da...

Even though vitamin K antagonists (VKAs) have been employed for>50  years, there is still some uncertainty about the best strategy to reverse anticoagulation due to VKAs in cases of major bleeding. Furthermore, there is also scarce evidence about the most appropriate way to treat serious bleeding associated with non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants. This review analyses the main advantages and disadvantages of the various forthcoming therapeutic options to restore a normal coagulation status in anticoagulated patients with ongoing serious bleeding.
