[Development of an Innovative Cell Isolation Method for the Investigation of Breast Cancer Pathogenesis and Angiogenesis for Experimental In Vitro And In Vivo Assays].
In this study we were able to isolate different cell populations from the same patient, which reflect the heterogeneity of the tumour tissue. This enables a precise analysis of cell-cell interactions and their effects on tumour angiogenesis and pathogenesis in breast cancer. In combination with the AV loop model, this offers new possibilities to generate vascularised mammary carcinoma tissue as well as healthy mammary gland tissue in vivo as an optimal model for the clinical setting.

[First results with a resorbable MgYREZr compression screw in unstable scaphoid fractures show extensive bone cysts].
Authors: Meier R, Panzica M Abstract Osteosynthesis with headless compression screws is an established treatment option for unstable scaphoid fractures. Common implants are made of titanium alloy or steel and usually remain in place. Due to implant density and ferromagnetic properties, artefacts are common in postoperative imaging procedures, e.g. MRI. Now resorbable implants made of magnesium alloy (MgYREZr) have become available. They have biomechanical properties equivalent to human bone and may be used as an alternative to the nonresorbable screw systems.5 patients with acute scaphoid fractures were treated wit...

[Concept for a National Implant Registry to Improve Patient Safety].
Authors: Prantl L, von Fritschen U, Liebau J, von Hassel J, Baur EM, Vogt PM, Giunta RE, Horch RE Abstract Since the introduction of silicone implants, several events have led to considerable uncertainty among the patients, public, and users. So far, however, the necessary steps to significantly improving patient safety have not been taken in any of these cases. Requiring stricter approvals for medical devices, improving monitoring by the regulatory authorities and the revision of the Medical Devices Directive are all initial steps in the right direction towards a change in policy, but are insufficient as an early ...

Discussion: Plastic surgeons should regularily attend tumour boards to spread the knowledge of the value of reconstructive procedures in multidisciplinary treatment, in order to enhance the quality of live of the palliative patient. Participation in the preparation of the next treatment guidelines for palliative care would be desirable. Whenever patients are considered in a palliative situation, palliative care anesthesiologists should be involved.

[Analysis of Critically Perfused Tissues by Laser Speckle Contrast Analysis (LASCA) Perfusion Imaging].
Conclusion: LASCA imaging is a robust method of perfusion imaging, which combines high resolution and speed. Hypoperfusion of tissues relevant to plastic surgery such as scars, phalangeal replantations and the different burn degrees (IIa, IIb and III) can be detected by LASCA imaging with high precision. Ease of use and immediate real-time imaging make LASCA imaging a reliable tool for the evaluation of tissue perfusion after plastic surgery procedures, which may influence further treatment decisions.

Conclusion: Elastic compression and patient mobilisation after free flap procedures in the lower extremity are considered to be very important in reducing complications and in protecting the flap from edema and volume overload. This article demonstrates that there is a wide variety in flap training regimes. It aims to help readers evaluate their own regimes and provides guidance for an individualised patient-oriented regime.

Conclusion: Definite indications and professional expertise are paramount for autologous fat tissue transfer. Successful transfers are based on the use of correct methods as well as specific instruments and materials. Autologous adipose tissue transplantation is considered to be a safe procedure in reconstructive and aesthetic surgery, due to the low rate of postoperative complications and sequelae.

Thumb hypoplasia can be categorised into 5 grades ranging from mild deformity to complete absence of the thumb. Thumb hypoplasia leads to a disturbance of grip function depending on its severity. The choice of treatment is based on the degree of thumb hypoplasia. For hypoplasia greater than grade 3B, restoration of the thumb using pollicization of the index finger is the treatment of choice. For this purpose the index fing...

Conclusions: Arthroscopic synovectomy of the wrist in patients with CPPD disease provides high patient satisfaction regardless of the radiologic stage. The procedure is atraumatic with low morbidity and high patient comfort. The Romano Classification should be supplemented by an additional early stage, SCAC 0. More often than suspected, CPPD disease may be responsible for wrist pain of unknown origin even in middle-aged patients.

Conclusion: The different rating systems for the evaluation of flexor tendon reconstruction are neither identical nor adjustable. Therefore, consensus or at least a recommendation is needed regarding the system to be used. It may even be necessary to develop a generally accepted rating system to compare studies. In the meantime, the readings of the active and passive range of motion of all joints of the affected finger/thumb ought to be published in studies to compare and validate the results.

CONCLUSION: By comparing lumbar and sacral skin distension in the same study participant, we are able to obtain intraindividually valid findings about possible changes in skin and scar quality. Owing to the lack of known published data about sacral skin elasticity, the proposed measurement method, while restricted to a number of special cases, seems to be practicable and independent of the patient's general condition. Compared with devices that have been used for the measurement of elasticity in other skin areas, our procedure is generally available and cost-neutral.

Authors: Faltus T Abstract The use of autologous fat, especially for (stem) cell-assisted lipotransfer in plastic and aesthetic surgery, has regularly been regarded as the manufacture and application of so called Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products (ATMP). However, the in-house production of such pharmaceuticals at the point-of-care (PoC) in the surgeon's practice is not permitted without an official manufacturing license. Therefore, before beginning such treatments, a pharmaceutical manufacturing license has to be granted to the surgeon to avoid criminal prosecution and negative consequences due to infringement of...

Given unchanged treatment measures, the main cost drivers identified by us remain the same, which means that there is no rationale for a drop in revenue. In addition to providing incentives for an efficient use of resources and quality optimisation, this system should offer medical service providers a sustainable and realistic possibility to break even.

We investigated the efficacy of ketamine in anaesthetic dosage in chronic, refractory CRPS patients that had failed available standard therapies. 5 female patients, aged a mean of 34 years with long-standing, a mean of 8 years', CRPS received ketamine in anaesthetic dosage over 10 days.
