Clinicians can feel confident about performing mitral repair/replacement in patients who have previously undergone mammoplasty. It may also have applications in performing atrial septal defect closure, Maze procedures for atrial fibrillation, and tricuspid valve surgery in patients with breast implants.

Bob Ensor didn’t see the boom swinging violently toward him as he cleaned a sailboat in dry dock on a spring day two years ago. But he heard the crack as it hit him in the face. He was transported by ambulance to an in-network hospital near his home in Middletown, N.J., where initial X-rays showed his nose was broken as were several bones of his left eye socket. The emergency physician summoned the on-call plastic surgeon, who admitted him to the hospital and scheduled him for surgery the next day. Shortly before surgery, the doctor introduced Ensor to a second plastic surgeon who would assist in the 90-minute proced...

AbstractBackgroundA randomized prospective trial to compare the effects on minimizing complications using continuous negative pressure drain and intermittent suction mode in plastic surgeries.MethodsThere were 174 cases of stage II post-auricular flap expansion and ear reconstruction, 76 cases of skin expansion flap repair, 56 cases of breast augmentation surgery, 58 cases of abdominoplasty, and 76 cases with free skin grafts. Patients were randomized to intermittent suction mode group (control group) and continuous negative pressure external drain group (intervention group) stratified by surgery types. In the intervention...

Be honest. What’s the first thing you think of when you hear the words “plastic surgery?” Breast implants? Nose jobs? Or maybe you’ll think about one of the numerous television programs out there that have featured the discipline: “Nip/Tuck?” “Botched?” “Grey’s Anatomy?” If so, you aren’t alone. Plastic surgery as a discipline is poorly understood by many, including primary care physicians, nurses, medical students and the public. Plastic surgeons perform many different reconstructive and aesthetic procedures. Many aren’t always familiar with the...

Conclusions Despite the overall low level of evidence in the literature regarding secondary breast augmentation, a thorough understanding of the corrective techniques presented will allow surgeons to make the most informed judgments. Weighing the strengths and weakness of these surgical techniques in the context of each patient will allow surgeons to develop the most appropriate treatment strategy. Level of Evidence: 4 Therapeutic

Conclusions: This study demonstrates the expression of toll-like receptor 4 in myofibroblasts of capsular tissue and its correlation with estrogen receptor-β positivity. Activation of toll-like receptor 4 and estrogen receptor-β, and their interplay, may be involved in myofibroblast differentiation and in the profibrotic pathogenic process underlying capsular contracture.

This study aimed to demonstrate the feasibility of such a model, and its effectiveness as part of a comprehensive teaching paradigm. Buffered lidocaine and bupivacaine mixture - the ideal local anesthetic solution?Mitigating the pain associated with local injections of anesthetic before surgical procedures is one of several primary goals of the plastic surgeon. Although there is no ideal local anesthetic solution for all applications, the combination of lidocaine, bupivacaine and epinephrine has demonstrated excellent versatility in plastic surgery. However, the acidic nature of commercially available lidocaine solutions c...

Impact of liposome bupivacaine on the adequacy of pain management and patient experiences following aesthetic surgery: Results from an observational studyDespite the significant increase in the number of cosmetic plastic surgery procedures performed over the past two decades and advances in surgical techniques, postsurgical pain continues to be a problem that influences possible analgesia-related adverse events, timely ambulation and recovery. This prospective, observational study investigated the eff...

Prevalence of brachial plexus injuries in patients with scapular fractures: A National Trauma Data Bank reviewPrompted, in part, by the scarcity and small sample sizes of studies examining brachial plexus injuries associated with scapular fractures, this retrospective study aimed to build on current data by investigating the prevalence of these types of injuries and how they correlate with the region of scapula injured. Data from a five-year period were collected from the National Trauma Data Bank, the l...
