BACKGROUND: To immediate reconstruct ptosis breasts, we used polyglactin (Vicryl; Ethicon Inc., Somerville, NJ, USA) mesh as an inferolateral sling. However, Vicryl mesh is absorbable and losing function as a supporting structure. We doubt about the stability of the blood supply to the inferior part of the flap when it is in direct contact with inner implant. In this study, we examine the complications and the safety of the skin flap of this absorbable mesh sling (AMS) procedure. METHODS: The outcomes of 80 cases were examined, and the 1-year safety record of 40 cases was assessed...

BACKGROUND: Up to 90% of patients undergoing breast cancer surgery suffer from seroma formation, which can cause discomfort and various complications after mastectomy. This retrospective observational cohort study aimed to elucidate whether flap fixation with fibrin sealant (ARTISS) tissue glue reduces seroma formation and seroma aspiration after mastectomy when compared with flap fixation using Vicryl sutures and when compared with a conventional wound closure technique. METHODS: All patients undergoing mastectomy due to invasive breast cancer or ductal carcinoma in situ were eligible for inclusion...

Background: Advances in suture material and geometry have fueled interest in barbed suture tenorrhaphy. Theoretically, barbed suture allows better load distribution, smoother gliding under pulleys, and improved tendon blood flow. Minimal data exist on whether barbed tendon repair may benefit from supplementation by a peripheral stitch. The purpose of this study is to determine whether peripheral suture repair increases gap resistance in both conventional and barbed core repairs, increases maximum tensile strength, and fails before or after the core repair...

PURPOSE: Optimal curative intent brachytherapy for certain gynecologic cancers requires interstitial brachytherapy, often using template-guided techniques such as a Syed-Neblett implant. Whether high or low dose rate (LDR), these procedures pose significant risks to patients, partly attributable to the prolonged period of bed rest. Published results of free-handed permanent interstitial brachytherapy (PIB) with (131)Cs demonstrate it to be an effective modality for the management of small volume gynecologic cancers...

BACKGROUND: Wound closure is key to prevent infection, facilitate immediate rehabilitation, and improve efficiency of total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Continuous knotless suturing with barbed suture can potentially save time and distribute tension more evenly. However, its role in TKA in terms of cost-effectiveness and wound complications is not clear. This study aims at comparing barbed and traditional sutures' wound closure time and cost in primary TKA. METHODS: One hundred nine knees were randomized into either barbed or traditional group...

BACKGROUND: Urethrocutaneous fistula (UCF) is the most prevalent complication after hypospadias repair surgery. Many methods have been developed for UCF correction, and the best technique for UCF repair is determined based on the size, location, and number of fistulas, as well as the status of the surrounding skin. OBJECTIVES: In this study, we introduced and evaluated a simple method for UCF correction after tubularized incised plate (TIP) repair. METHODS: This clinical study was conducted on children with UCFs ≤ 4 mm that developed after TIP surgery for hypospadias repair...

BACKGROUND: Robotic surgical platforms have seen increased use among minimally invasive gastrointestinal surgeons (von Fraunhofer et al. in J Biomed Mater Res 19(5):595-600, 1985. doi: 10.1002/jbm.820190511 ). However, these systems still suffer from lack of haptic feedback, which results in exertion of excessive force, often leading to suture failures (Barbash et al. in Ann Surg 259(1):1-6, 2014. doi: 10.1097/SLA.0b013e3182a5c8b8 ). This work catalogs tensile strength and failure load among commonly used sutures in an effort to prevent robotic surgical consoles from exceeding identified thresholds...

Septoplasty is one of the most common operations performed in otolaryngology and anterior nasal packing is done routinely to prevent postoperative bleeding, septal hematoma or nasal synechia. Currently, transseptal sutures have gained a broader application area, not only for preventing the complications such as septal hematoma and bleeding but also closing any accidental tears of septal mucosa and providing additional support for the cartilage pieces retained in septoplasty. We evaluated the quality of life of the patients in early postoperative period (in the first postoperative week), intranasal edema with endoscopic examination and the intranasal changes with acoustic rhinometry...

Repair of long ureteral defects often requires extensive surgical procedures and graft tissue which is associated with various complications, e.g. graft site morbidity or lack of suitable tissue. Tissue engineering might provide an alternative therapeutic approach in these cases. Reinforced tubular collagen-Vicryl scaffolds (l = 5 cm, lumen Ø = 6 mm, thickness = 3 mm) were developed with or without vascular endothelial growth factor and basic fibroblast growth factor and evaluated in a pre-clinical porcine model...
