Rhinophyma is a deforming soft tissue hyperplasia of the nose and surgical removal represents the treatment of choice. Comprehensive data on surgical therapy and the impact of rhinophyma on patient quality of life are lacking. Patients who received surgery for rhinophyma between 2006 and 2015 were retrospectively evaluated for postoperative complications, clinical outcome, recurrence of rhinophyma, and the impact of rhinophyma on daily life. A total of 143 patients were treated with superficial tumour decortication by scalpel under tumescent anaesthesia...

BACKGROUND: Cosmetic result following breast conserving surgery (BCS) for cancer influences quality of life and psychosocial functioning in breast cancer patients. A preoperative prediction of expected cosmetic result following BCS is not (yet) standard clinical practice and therefore the choice for either mastectomy or BCS is still subjective. Recently, we showed that tumour volume to breast volume ratio as well as tumour location in the breast are independent predictors of superior cosmetic result following BCS...

Facial nerve dysfunction can be functionally and cosmetically debilitating and is commonly associated with high anxiety for patients. We report 3 cases of temporary, unilateral facial nerve palsy following dermatologic surgery under local anaesthesia over the preauricular cheek and mandibular angle, which, to our knowledge, has not been reported in the literature. Given its frightening presentation mimicking a stroke, it is essential for dermatologists to become aware of this complication to inform their patients more thoroughly...

Partial resections of the breast are more than 50% of breast oncological surgery. The resulting defect can be substantial and cause meaningful deformity that leads to reduced body image satisfaction of the patients, affecting their ability to cope with the cancer. Parallel to the development of breast oncology techniques, an evolution of breast reconstruction techniques occurred. During the last decade, by using techniques from cosmetic breast surgery (such as breast reductions, augmentations and mastopexies), we can reconstruct extensive partial defects of the breasts at the immediate and delayed setting and achieve symmetrical aesthetic results...

INTRODUCTION: Giant cell tumor (GCT) or osteoclastoma is an osteolytic, mostly benign but locally aggressive tumor occurring in young adults at the epiphysis. Area of predilection is mainly long bones (85-90%). 4% of GCT are also found in iliac bone, spine and only 2% in hand (of which GCT phalanges are more common than metacarpal). GCT of metatarsal is a very rare occurrence with very few cases being reported so far. We report a case of GCT 1(st) metatarsal in a 40-year-old male which is a very rare entity...

BACKGROUND: Epithelioid angiosarcoma is a kind of high grade malignancy sarcoma of soft tissue, which is hard to diagnose and completely exsect without causing functional and cosmetic problems. Moreover, the high rate of recurrence is hard to handle. Photodynamic therapy is a novel treatment protocol which can selectively destroy tumor cell with good functional and cosmetic outcomes. METHODS: This is a case about a 81 years old patient with Epithelioid angiosarcoma in the right medial angle of eye, which received surgery and photodynamic therapy...

BACKGROUND: Simultaneous bilateral primary spontaneous pneumothorax (SBPSP) is rare, but requires surgery on both sides, in patients with definite bilateral bullae to prevent life-threatening conditions. Recently, uniportal video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) has been widely accepted as a less invasive technique for the treatment of pneumothorax. Thus, we introduced single-staged uniportal VATS technique in the supine position, for the management of two cases of SBPSP. CASE PRESENTATION: A 17-year-old boy presented with bilateral spontaneous pneumothorax and he underwent single-staged uniportal VATS in the supine position...

BACKGROUND: Currently, the isotretinoin (13-cis-retinoic acid) package insert contains language advising the discontinuation of isotretinoin for 6 months before performing cosmetic procedures, including waxing, dermabrasion, chemical peels, laser procedures, or incisional and excisional cold-steel surgery. It is common practice to follow this standard because of concerns regarding reports of sporadic adverse events and increased risk of scarring. OBJECTIVE: To develop expert consensus regarding the safety of skin procedures, including resurfacing, energy device treatments, and incisional and excisional procedures, in the setting of concurrent or recent isotretinoin use...

E Maurer, S Wächter, D K Bartsch
In thyroid surgery multiple different cervical minimally invasive (partly endoscopically assisted) and extracervical endoscopic (partly robot-assisted) approaches have been developed in the last 20 years. The aim of all these alternative approaches to the thyroid gland is optimization of the cosmetic result. The indications for the use of alternative and conventional approaches are principally the same. Important requirements for the use of alternative methods are nevertheless a broad experience in conventional thyroid operations of the thyroid and adequate patient selection under consideration of the size of the thyroid and the underlying pathology...
