BACKGROUND: Aging is a contributing factor to rotator cuff tears. Dysfunction of the scapular muscles can be a potential cause of rotator cuff tears. Although aging can contribute to dysfunction of the scapular muscles, and subsequently result in rotator cuff tears, the effects of aging on scapular muscles are unclear. OBJECTIVE: To determine changes in sizes and electromyographic activities of the scapular muscles with age in asymptomatic subjects. DESIGN: Cross-sectional study PATIENTS: Fifty-four asymptomatic subjects without shoulder pain and dysfunction (18 males and 36 females) were recruited for this study...

BACKGROUND: Progressive biceps loading is recommended in the nonoperative and operative rehabilitation of biceps-related disorders. Previous researchers have proposed a continuum of exercises with low to moderate biceps loads to be used in the early and intermediate phases of rehabilitation. A progression of exercises with moderate to high biceps loads to be used in the more advanced phases of rehabilitation is lacking. PURPOSE: To describe a progression of exercises with progressive moderate to high loads on the biceps brachii (BB) based on electromyographic (EMG) analysis...

BACKGROUND: Pain is a major limiting factor in patient's recovery from major thoracic surgical procedures. Thoracic epidural analgesia (TEA), the current gold standard of perioperative management, has contraindications, can technically fail, and carries a risk of complications such as epidural abscess and spinal hematoma. The ultrasound-guided serratus anterior plane (SAP) block is a promising regional analgesia technique. OBJECTIVES: Since the anatomic space involved in the SAP block corresponds to the area exposed by the surgeon during right posterolateral thoracotomy, we investigated the feasibility of a "surgically guided" continuous SAP block as an alternative to TEA in selected esophagectomy patients...

BACKGROUND: Achieving optimal inferolateral coverage is critical to successful prosthetic breast reconstruction. Serratus anterior fascia (SF) elevation, a promising alternative to muscle flaps and acellular dermis (ADM), has not been rigorously studied. This study evaluates complication rates after mastectomy and immediate tissue expander (TE) coverage using SF, relative to other existing methods of reconstruction. METHODS: Retrospective review of consecutive patients undergoing mastectomy with immediate TE reconstruction over 10 years at 1 institution was performed...

INTRODUCTION: Postmastectomy pain syndrome (PMPS) is a significant burden for breast cancer survivors. Although multiple therapies have been described, an evolving field of serratus anterior plane blocks has been described in this population. We describe the addition of the deep serratus anterior plane block (DSPB) for PMPS. METHODS: Four patients with history of PMPS underwent DSPB for anterior chest wall pain. A retrospective review of these patients' outcomes was obtained through postprocedure interviews...

To explore the techniques for mandibular reconstruction with composite free flaps and their outcomes, we systematically reviewed reports published between 1990 and 2015. A total of 9499 mandibular defects were reconstructed with 6178 fibular, 1380 iliac crest, 1127 composite radial, 709 scapular, 63 serratus anterior and rib, 32 metatarsal, and 10 lateral arm flaps including humerus. The failure rate was higher for the iliac crest (6.2%, 66/1059) than for fibular, radial, and scapular flaps combined (3.4%, 202/6018) (p<0...

AIMS: The subcutaneous cardioverter defibrillator was designed to overcome electrode complications of transvenous defibrillation systems. While largely achieved, pocket complications have increased. Subcutaneous implantation of the pulse generator leaves it prone to erosion, extrusion, discomfort, and poor cosmesis. METHODS AND RESULTS: We use a demonstration electrode and pulse generator with fluoroscopy, prior to prepping and draping, to maximize the left ventricular mass between them...

Reconstructing congenital auricular defects due to hemifacial microsomia (HFM) is often required to deal with low hairline and defects of the temporal fascia/muscular systems. In this report, we present two cases of HFM patients (16-year-old and 20-year-old) with positional anomaly of the remnant lobule and 95% low hairline, who were treated with serratus anterior fascial flap (SFF) at the second stage of auricular construction. At the first stage, 3D costal cartilage framework was placed following the removal of hair-bearing skin, and was resurfaced with the pericranial flap...
