Complications Associated with Fat Grafting to the Lower Eyelid.

Complications Associated with Fat Grafting to the Lower Eyelid. Facial Plast Surg Clin North Am. 2019 Nov;27(4):435-441 Authors: Maamari RN, Massry GG, Holds JB Abstract Fat grafting is effectively used in the lower eyelid and periorbital area for rejuvenation of the aging face. Several complications may occur with fat grafting, including volume undercorrection or overcorrection, contour irregularities, prolonged bruising and swelling, infection, granulomas and inflammation, and vascular embolization with visual loss or stroke. In many cases, complications can be effectively treated, although permanent and serious injury can occur. Appropriate surgical techniques help to prevent most of these complications. An understanding of how and why complications of fat grafting of the lower eyelid occur aids in the avoidance and treatment of these complications. PMID: 31587763 [PubMed - in process]

This study investigated the predictors of gait efficiency when walking with and without an arm sling in individuals with hemiplegia with shoulder subluxation. METHODS: A total of 57 individuals with shoulder subluxation were recruited. Individuals assigned odd numbers walked with the arm sling first and those with even numbers walked without the arm sling first in a pre-post design. Outcome measures were the energy cost, energy consumption, and heart rate during a 6-min walk test and a 10-m walk test. Gait efficiency is defined as energy consumption divided by the distance walked, with lower energy costs reflecting hi...

AbstractEncephaloduroarteriosynangiosis (EDAS) is one of the most commonly used indirect vascular reconstruction methods. EDAS aids in the formation of collateral vessels from the extracranial to the intracranial circulation in patients with moyamoya disease (MMD). However, the underlying mechanism of collateral vessel formation is not well understood. Endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) differentiate to form the vascular endothelial cells and play a very important role in angiogenesis. We designed this prospective clinical trial to investigate the presence of EPCs in patients with MMD and to explore the neovascularization...

In this study, we used markers to monitor the formation of SGs in Caenorhabditis elegans. We found that, in addition to acute heat stress, SG formation could also be triggered by dietary changes, such as starvation and dietary restriction (DR). We found that HSF-1 is required for the SG formation in response to acute heat shock and starvation but not DR, whereas the AMPK-eEF2K signaling is required for starvation and DR-induced SG formation but not heat shock. Moreover, our data suggest that this AMPK-eEF2K pathway-mediated SG formation is required for lifespan extension by DR, but dispensable for the longevity by reduced ...

The complement system is a part of the innate immune system, and aids in the coordination of the immune response. It promotes inflammation, and in certain circumstances, such as the loss of blood supply to tissue, known as ischemia, it is actively harmful. Following a stroke, the complement system encourages the immune system to attack and destroy neurons and neural connections in the ischemic area, treating them as though they are dead or debris. A sizable fraction of those brain cells could in principle be salvaged if the blood supply is restored quickly enough, but the complement system actively sabotages this goal. Thu...

Bubble contrast echocardiography, with an agitated mixture of air and saline, is used for the detection of intrapulmonary or intracardiac right-to-left shunts.1 However, the administration of air in patients with large right-to-left shunts may have a risk of embolic complications including stroke.2-5 The addition of blood to the air-saline mixture aids with image quality.6,7 The goal of this study was to test the feasibility of an agitated blood-saline (without additional air) mixture in shunt studies and to compare its efficacy against the standard agitated air-saline in opacification of right-sided cardiac chambers.

Abstract Grooming in the mouse features hand licking and symmetric and asymmetric arm and hand "strokes" over the face and body to maintain pelage. Grooming is syntactically organized but the structure of individualized movements of the arm, hand, and tongue have not been examined. Here spontaneous and water-induced grooming was video recorded in free-moving and head-fixed mice and subject to frame-by-frame video inspection and kinematic analysis using Physics Tracker. All groom arm and hand movements had a structure similar that described for reach-to-eat movements. The movement included the hand liftin...
