In this study, absorption capacity of the most commonly used types of wound dressings was measured with an objective, quantifiable, and easily reproducible method. The use of objective measurements allowed us to perform an objective comparison of the capacity of the different types of dressings. An experimental study was performed, in which the absorptive capacity of polyurethane foams, alginate, hidrofiber, and hydrocolloid dressings was measured by using a methodology designed by the researchers. Polyurethane foams showed a higher absorption capacity than hidrofibers, alginates, and hydrocolloids when using a similar surface of dressing...

This was a pilot study to examine pre- and postoperative stress experienced by women who were undergoing autologous breast reconstruction and how stress might impact wound healing, specifically examining cytokines and other chemical mediators in the wound environment. A nonexperimental descriptive design over time was utilized. Participants were women who were undergoing autologous abdominal breast reconstruction for breast cancer (N = 20). Data were collected preoperatively and at 24, 48, 72, and 96 hr postsurgery...

In rhinoplasty, one of the most popular aesthetic surgical procedures worldwide, several different techniques are utilized when performing a rhinoplasty procedure. Many complications can arise postoperatively depending on the surgical approach and technique utilized. A method to reduce immediate postoperative complications has been identified.

Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a painful and debilitating, chronic inflammatory disease affecting the skin bearing apocrine glands. HS causes painful abscesses and nodules that can eventually progress to interconnected sinus tracts, scarring, and contractures of the skin. There is no definitive cure for HS, but multiple treatment strategies are available to patients. Treatments range from meticulous hygiene of the affected area to wide surgical excision of all involved tissue. This case study discusses the pathophysiology of the disease, severity staging, treatment options, and a patient case...

Looks matter! "Almost from the moment of birth, each of us is judged-silently, unconsciously, and nearly instantly on the basis of everything that goes into the mix of qualities known as "physical attractiveness" (). Aging may be one of the most foreseeable facts of life. As aesthetic providers, we routinely hear concerns about the effects of aging on our looks; it is important that we address these concerns. How do we set our client/provider relationship up for success by providing superb aesthetic solutions to the age-old challenges that we are faced with every day?

Lip enhancement is a common injection treatment that may involve several different injection techniques based on the patient's goals, expectations, and facial anatomy. It is the aesthetic provider's professional judgment to determine which technique will provide the desired results. Taking the time to provide a thorough assessment, review the potential complications, and discuss expectations is an important step in building a patient-nurse therapeutic relationship. Understanding the anatomy and the supporting structures around the perioral area will improve the overall results of a lip enhancement treatment...

Many mainstream medications were derived from plants and originally utilized in patient management well prior to the extensive research and testing processes of current pharmaceutical standards. The evolution of therapeutic management within the pharmaceutical and skin care industry often uses synthetic processing of products with less of a focus on the natural ingredients from which they were originally derived. However, more recently there has been a shift in pharmacological management to include the therapeutic use of more holistic medicines and practices and thus a broadening of the uses of nontraditional medical treatment options...

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of met and unmet expectations after breast reconstruction among breast cancer survivors following mastectomy. A secondary objective was to examine reasons women report their experiences of reconstructive surgery were better or worse than expected. As part of a larger study of breast cancer survivors, participants completed self-administered questionnaires within 8 months of diagnosis and at 6, 12, and 18 months later. At the 18-month follow-up, women who had breast reconstruction were asked whether their reconstruction was better, the same, or worse than expected...

According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (), the number of nonsurgical treatments grew 650% from 1996 to 2016. As these procedures have evolved and improved, so have their ability to deliver results that enhance one's natural beauty and reverse the signs of aging. Many patients seek these procedures in the hopes of looking younger and more refreshed, but "younger" can be subjective and the patient's desired outcome may be difficult for practitioners to interpret. A recent study () of 350 women found that patients are carrying around a "memory photo" of themselves that is about 10 years younger than their actual age...
