It can be tempting to cheat, I know. After over 40 years as a therapist, I’ve heard many, many reasons that people (even people who say they love their partner) give for cheating. There’s the thrill of the forbidden, the notion that what’s out there may be better than what you’ve got, the affirmation that comes from feeling attractive to someone else — especially when self-esteem is shaky, the satisfaction of someone preferring you to the partner they’ve got, and the itch to explore what could have been or could be sexually with someone else.

From April 2014 to March 2018, we retrospectively reviewed patients with traumatic/post-traumatic, oncologic, and electrical wounds in the lower extremity. Those treated with muscle feeding artery as recipient vessels were included. The latissimus dorsi (LD) muscle free flap, anterior lateral thigh (ALT) perforator free flap, and de...

Abstract Glaucoma is a frequent and devastating long-term complication following ocular trauma, including corneal surgery, open globe injury, chemical burn, infection, etc. Post-event inflammation and neuroglial remodeling plays a key role in subsequent ganglion cell apoptosis and glaucoma. To this end, this study was designed to investigate the amplifying role of monocyte infiltration into the retina. By using 3 different ocular injury mouse models (corneal suture, penetrating keratoplasty, and globe injury) and monocyte fate mapping techniques we show that ocular trauma or surgery can cause robust infiltration o...
