PURPOSE: Corneal melting with perforation is a severe ophthalmic complication of autoimmune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis. It requires urgent medical management in order to maintain the integrity of the globe and preserve vision. Treating this complication by penetrating keratoplasty is problematic due to the high rate of recurrence of corneal melting as well as other complications. We describe the use of a tectonic fresh-tissue corneolimbal covering graft. METHODS: An interventional case series including three patients that presented to our tertiary center between 2000 and 2015 with corneal melting and perforation, secondary to rheumatoid arthritis...

Autografts represent the gold standard for peripheral nerve reconstruction but their limited availability, the discrepancy of nerve caliber and long surgical times are drawbacks. Allografts have therefore become a valid alternative option. In particular, acellular nerve allografts (ANAs) rather than fresh allografts do not need immunosuppression and appear to be safe and effective based on recent studies. An innovative method was conceived to obtain ANAs, so as to speed up nerve decellularization, without compromising nerve architecture, and without breaking the asepsis chain...

PURPOSE: Initial graft tension in anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction affects stability and tension loss at follow-up. This study investigated the influence of hybrid tibial fixation in 3-tunnel double-bundle ACL reconstruction on initial graft tension and tension change and stability under anterior and combined rotatory loads. METHODS: Eleven fresh-frozen cadaveric knees were reconstructed with an ACL double bundle using a 3-tunnel technique. Grafts were tightened to 80 N in 60° (AM bundle) and 15° (PL bundle) of flexion...

Thrombus formation remains a particular challenge for small-diameter vascular grafts. In this study, the direct thrombin inhibitor hirudin (Hir) was used to modify silk fibroin films in an attempt to enhance its antithrombogenic properties. Hir was successfully attached to silk fibroin and uniformly distributed in the regenerative material. Hir-modified films showed good cytocompatibility, and supported adhesion and proliferation of fibroblasts (L929), human umbilical vascular endothelial cells (HUVECs) and human aortic smooth muscle cells (HASMCs)...

Our aim was to compare the wound healing of autogenous bone grafts with that of fresh-frozen allogeneic block bone in rabbits. We used 25 animals. One was killed before the experiment to provide the allogeneic bone, and the remainder were killed at four time points (n=6 in each group). On histometrical analysis there was a significant difference between the two groups only at 45days and between 15 and 45days in the intergroup analysis. However, there was significantly more revascularisation (p<0.05), resorption (p<0...

Osteochondral lesions of the talus (OLTs) are an increasingly implicated cause of ankle pain and instability. Several treatment methods exist with varying clinical outcomes. Due in part to successful osteochondral allografting (OCA) in other joints, such as the knee and shoulder, OCA has gained popularity as a treatment option, especially in the setting of large lesions. The clinical outcomes of talar OCA have been inconsistent relative to the positive results observed in other joints. Current literature regarding OCA failure focuses mainly on 3 factors: the effect of graft storage conditions on chondrocyte viability, graft/lesion size, and operative technique...

Polysulfone (PSF) was grafted chemically with polyethylene glycol (PEG) of different molecular weights (400, 2000, 10 000, and 20 000) and heparin to prepare PSF-PEG-Hep membranes (labeled as PSF-PEG400-Hep, PSF-PEG2000-Hep, PSF-PEG10 000-Hep, and PSF-PEG20 000-Hep). These membranes were synthesized via the following steps: (i) PSF chloromethylation; (ii) PEGylation; and (iii) heparin immobilization process. Water contact angle, critical water permeation pressure, ATR-FTIR, (1) H NMR, UV-visible spectrophotometry, and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy were conducted to prove grafting success and to fix the optimal reaction parameters during chemical modification processes...

Chronic wounds require extensive healing time and place patients at risk of infection and amputation. Recently, a fresh hypothermically stored amniotic membrane (HSAM) was developed and has subsequently shown promise in its ability to effectively heal chronic wounds. The purpose of this study is to investigate the mechanisms of action that contribute to wound-healing responses observed with HSAM. A proteomic analysis was conducted on HSAM, measuring 25 growth factors specific to wound healing within the grafts...

Boron (B) deficiency stress is frequently observed in citrus orchards and causes considerable loss of productivity and fruit quality. Carrizo citrange (Cc) has been reported as a rootstock more tolerant to B deficiency than Trifoliate orange (To). The 'Newhall' navel orange (Ns) performed better when grafted onto Cc (Ns/Cc) than when grafted onto To (Ns/To) under long-term B deficiency. The present study confirmed that Ns/Cc had higher boron content, leaf fresh weight, lower leaf chlorosis and stronger photosynthesis ability than Ns/To...

Cell-assisted lipotransfer has shown much promise as a technique to improve fat graft retention in both mouse and human studies. However, the literature varies as to whether fresh stromal vascular fraction or culture-expanded adipose-derived stromal cells are used to augment volume retention. The authors' study sought to determine whether there was a significant advantage to using adipose-derived stromal cells over unpurified stromal vascular fraction cells in a mouse model of cell-assisted lipotransfer.

BACKGROUND: Dislocation of the proximal tibiofibular joint is a complex injury that is often overlooked or misdiagnosed. Surgical management is recommended for severe acute or for chronic symptomatic instability of the proximal tibiofibular joint. Although the anterior ligamentous complex has been reported to be stronger than the posterior complex, biomechanical data are lacking. PURPOSE: To determine the ultimate load of the anterior and posterior ligamentous complexes of the proximal tibiofibular joint to determine optimal graft selection...

BACKGROUND: From 1990-2005 at Ochsner Medical Center in New Orleans, LA, cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) was used only when necessary during lung transplantation surgeries. Ochsner's lung transplant program was closed for more than 4 years after Hurricane Katrina, and since the program's reestablishment in 2010, the majority of lung transplantation surgeries have been performed with the patient on CPB and with a median sternotomy incision. The purpose of this study was to compare the outcomes of the CPB and non-CPB groups...

CD34(+)-selected stem cell boost (SCB) without conditioning has recently been utilized for poor graft function (PGF) after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation with promising results. Unfortunately, many patients have been unable to receive the boost infusion as their donors were unwilling or unable to undergo an additional stem cell collection. Therefore, we conducted this study utilizing either fresh or cryopreserved peripheral blood stem cell products to create CD34(+)-selected boost infusions for the treatment of PGF...

BACKGROUND: Liposuction and subsequent autologous fat grafting have become essential techniques for fat augmentation in plastic surgery. However, standard harvesting techniques that ensure the survival of adipocytes and stromal vascular fraction (SVF) cells and thus preserve the transplanted fat volume are lacking. In particular, the effect of different parameters of the tumescent solution has not been studied in this context. We hypothesized that the osmolality of the tumescent solution could have a significant effect on the survival of adipocytes and SVF cells...
