METHODS: Using applied search terms pertaining to face transplantation, a systematic PubMed search, Google search, and review of Plastic Surgery Education Network News Connection e-mailed newsletters were performed, and data presented at three meetings (i...

Two hundred fifty years have passed since Frank Nicholls' history-making, accurate observations on the anatomic findings and cause of death of King George II were published. Several decades later, the disease was named, using--for the first time--the terms dissection and dissecting attached to an aortic disease process. Another century went by before effective surgical treatment was developed. In sharp contrast, the evolution of the last 20 years has been nothing short of amazing. Our understanding of AD, while not yet complete, has improved dramatically...

Excellent local control rates can be achieved using multidisciplinary approach and combined surgical technics. Better vascular and nervous dissections, use of different flaps and isolated limb perfusion have been determinant. Resection's extent of retroperitoneal sarcoma is still debated, but compartmental surgery seems to achieve better local control. The impact of pre operative radiotherapy will be explored soon in a randomized EORTC trial. Concerning desmoids, authors address the question whether surgery and other aggressive treatments should systematically be part of first-line treatment, as growth arrest occurred in 2/3 of non-operated patients...

The year 2000 was rich in events, either spectacular news or confirmed improvement of on-going advances, as far as paediatric cardiology is concerned. The selection presented by the authors includes the first percutaneous implantation in a human being of a biological (bovine) valve which was sewn on a stent, compressed into a catheter and inserted against a stenotic and leaking procine bioprosthesis in a right-ventricle to pulmonary-artery conduit. This may be a new way to further valve replacements as alternatives to surgery...

Recently, William W. McGuire, Chief Executive Officer of United Health-Care, emphasized that the key from the patient's viewpoint is access. He stated, "We use the term gateway rather than gatekeeper." He emphasizes the importance of direct access of the patient to the right physician, whether it be a specialist or a generalist. Although some health care strategists believe that patients should initially see a generalist before receiving specialty care, this approach may not save dollars in the long run. Managed care is likely to have a major impact on vascular surgeons...
