Umbilical reconstruction: different techniques, a single aim.

Umbilical reconstruction: different techniques, a single aim. Acta Biomed. 2019 Dec 23;90(4):504-509 Authors: Gardani M, Palli D, Simonacci F, Grieco MP, Bertozzi N, Raposio E Abstract The umbilicus is a unique physiologic scar of human life resulting from the healing process of the cut umbilical cord at birth. Its absence leads to an unnatural abdominal appearance, and an abnormally shaped or misplaced umbilicus may draw undue attention to the central abdomen. Loss of the umbilicus can be an embarrassing deformity; this occurs when older techniques of umbilical hernia or incisional hernia repair are employed and after abdominoplasty, urachal cyst repair, omphalocele repair, gastroschisis repair, some tumor excisions, and mobilization of bipedicled or bilateral TRAM/DIEP flaps for breast reconstruction. Umbilicoplasty, in which the umbilicus remains anchored to the deep abdominal fascia but is transposed through a newly-formed aperture in the upper abdominal skin flap, is performed in abdominoplasty either for abdominal flap harvest or purely for aesthetics. On the other hand, umbiliconeoplasty describes the de novo creation of an umbilicus that is absent for either congenital or acquired reasons. The optimal umbilical reconstruction should be reliable, reproducible, aesthetically appropriate, and associated with low morbidity. Ideally, it is also single-staged, except in the case of an infected wound, in which case a delayed primary approach may be prud...

In conclusion, taller body height at the entry to adulthood, supposed to be a marker of early-life environment, is associated with lower risk of dementia diagnosis later in life. The association persisted when adjusted for educational level and intelligence test scores in young adulthood, suggesting that height is not just acting as an indicator of cognitive reserve.

ConclusionThere was no statistically significant different between knotless versus knotted medial row double row rotator cuff repair constructs using suture tape in regard to displacement across the repair site, stiffness and ultimate load to failure. Despite previous evidence suggesting inferiority of knotless medial row technique using suture constructs, this evidence may support the biomechanical equivalency of knotless medial row technique using suture tape.

Cells with high replication stress rely on the upregulation of checkpoints like those governed by CHK1 for survival. Previous studies of the CHK1 inhibitor prexasertib demonstrated activity across multiple cancer types. Therefore, we sought to (1) identi...

Recently, loss of SMARCB1 expression has been reported in gastrointestinal carcinomas. Our purpose was to evaluate the incidence and prognostic value of SMARCB1 loss in colon carcinoma (CC). Patients with stage III CC (n= 1695), and a second cohort of 23 patients with poorly differentiated CC were analyzed. Immunohistochemistry for SMARC...

Due to lightweight, high tensile strength and also long-term durability, all this tends CFRP as a major material. In this experimental paper, the different temperatures that are 100 °C, 200 °C, 300 °C, 400 °C are applied and analyze the effects on CFRP wrapped concrete. The experiment is conducted on 150...

Authors: Iking J, Klose J, Staniszewska M, Fendler W, Herrmann K, Rischpler C Abstract Inflammation after myocardial infarction (MI) has been in the focus of cardiovascular research for several years as it influences the remodelling process of the ischaemic heart and thereby critically determines the clinical outcome of the patient. Today, it is well appreciated that inflammation is a crucial necessity for the initiation of the natural wound healing process; however, excessive inflammation can have detrimental effects and might result in adverse ventricular remodelling which is associated with an increased risk of ...

ConclusionACP pneumatization can be recognized in all ages including pediatric age. CT scan is recommended before anterior clinoidectomy to assess the presence and extent of pneumatization to avoid CSF leak complications. When recognized, reconstruction must be attempted to obliterate the connection between the intracranial space and nasal sinuses. If CSF leak recognized post-operatively, repair is feasible through open or endoscopic transnasal approach.

We present a surgical technique that diminishes tension of the repair with MCPJ flexion. Twenty-two EDC tendon stabilization procedures were performed between 2006 and 2017 using a tendon flap method. The selection criteria for this group of patients included completely dislocating extensor tendons with persistent complaints of pain and decrease in finger extension despite at least a 6-week conservative treatment attempt. All subjects underwent surgical treatment for tendon centralization using a distally based tendinous flap from the EDC sutured to the adjacent finger volar plate. A mathematical model was developed to ana...
