Conclusion Nasal elongation using costal cartilage grafting is an effective therapeutic approach for patients with severe short noses. Reliable outcomes and the use of autologous tissue along with minimal donor site morbidity contribute to the high patient acceptance. Meticulous surgical technique and careful patient selection are prerequisites for successful results.
In conclusion, this “Undulate-design Double Abdominal flaps Insertion-Pouch for Upper limb Reconstruction” is a new and effective solution for circumferential defects of wrist and hand.
CONCLUSIONS: A post-auricular approach for repair of auricular defects can provide a reasonable option for single and multi-staged closure to create an excellent aesthetic outcome while hiding the donor site. More prospective data is required to determine the overall best approach. J Drugs Dermatol. 2020;19(9):883-888. doi:10.36849/JDD.2020.5106. PMID: 33026744 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
ConclusionsCompared with FCES placement alone, ASGS appeared to be more effective in preventing esophageal stenosis after ccESTD for SESCNs.
Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a debilitating skin condition; in severe forms it requires excision and skin grafting for cure. This is commonly performed as a multi-stage procedure; we explored single-stage operation as a more efficient alternative.
Conclusion: We have provided the first evidence that DHA is advantageous over MTX in preventing psoriasis relapse by reducing memory CD8+ T-cells.
Rationale: Construction of functional vascularized three-dimensional tissues has been a longstanding objective in the field of tissue engineering. The efficacy of using a tissue expander capsule as an induced vascular bed to prefabricate functional vascularized smooth muscle tissue flaps for bladder reconstruction in a rabbit model was tested.Methods: Skin tissue expanders were inserted into the groin to induce vascularized capsule pouch formation. Smooth muscle cells and endothelial progenitor cells were harvested and cocultured to form pre-vascularized smooth muscle cell sheet. Then repeated transplantation of triple-lay...
Scars developing after wrist cutting (a deliberate action of self-harm) have various patterns and are difficult to treat. In addition, they can occur at anatomically prominent sites and are easily recognized as caused by self-harm; thus, scars can cause li...
de Masson Cutaneous T-cell lymphomas (CTCLs) are non-Hodgkin lymphomas that develop primarily in the skin. They account for almost 80% of primary cutaneous lymphomas. Epidermotropic CTCLs (mycosis fungoides (MF) and Sézary syndrome (SS)) are the most common form of CTCL. The course of the disease ranges from an indolent clinical behavior in early-stage disease to an aggressive evolution in the advanced stages. Advanced-stage disease is defined by the presence of tumors, erythroderma, or significant blood, nodal or visceral involvement. Advanced-stage disease is characterized by frequent disease relapses, re...
