Composite Buttock Augmentation: The Next Frontier in Gluteal Aesthetic Surgery

Conclusions: Taking a lesson from composite breast augmentation, composite buttock augmentation is a new method for gluteal reshaping that seeks to use the best of both worlds: the reliable core projection of an implant combined with the natural appearance and feel of fat. Progressive instrument dissection seeks to minimize unnecessary dissection and to accurately and safely define the intramuscular pocket. The intramuscular placement of implants instead of fat should eliminate the risk of fatal fat pulmonary embolism in these patients. CLINICAL QUESTION/LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Therapeutic, IV.

Objectives: To explore the association between increased time in traction and in-hospital pulmonary complications in patients with acetabular fractures. Design: Retrospective. Setting: Level I trauma center. Patients/Participants: One hundred ninety consecutive patients. Intervention: Application of skeletal traction before fixation of acetabular fracture. Main Outcome Measurements: The primary outcome measure was pulmonary complication as defined by pulmonary embolism, pneumonia, and acute respiratory distress syndrome. Secondary outcome measures included length of intensive care unit stay (in days), tota...

We describe a case of aggressive progression of TA in an infant. This child was the youngest to be affected with the disease as reported in the literature. A 3.5-month-old boy presented with cyanosis of both legs, tachycardia and antithrombin III deficiency. Computed tomography angiography (CTA) revealed thrombosis of distal aorta and both iliac arteries. Thrombectomy was performed at the level of both common femoral arteries. In addition, thigh amputation of the left leg had to be performed. TA was diagnosed postmortem with thrombosis of the distal aorta, its branches and upper mesenteric artery which was not occluded on ...

A 46-year-old man with a history of alcohol use disorder, tobacco use, and chronic pancreatitis complicated by an untreated pseudocyst presented with two days of right lower extremity swelling and pain, shortness of breath, and pleuritic chest pain. A right lower extremity Doppler showed a saphenous vein thrombus, and CT angiography of the chest revealed multiple bilateral segmental pulmonary emboli with involvement of the right distal main pulmonary artery. The patient had no personal or family history of venous thromboembolism, and review of systems was not concerning for an underlying oncologic or active inflammatory process.

This study also examines the clinical nurse's role in preventing thrombosis and caring for pediatric patients who present with thrombosis. METHODS: The thrombosis literature was reviewed to identify risk factors, treatment regimens, and strategies for prevention. FINDINGS: Thrombosis in pediatric patients with cancer requires management of potential complications so that cancer treatment may continue. PMID: 31961846 [PubMed - in process]
