AIM: It is known that periodontal tissues heal faster that skin, and gingiva in particular heal without scar formation. The mechanisms regulating this behavior are still unclear. The aim of our work is to compare wound healing in oral mucosa and gingiva, investigating the role of αSMA-expressing myofibroblasts and autophagy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Biopsies were obtained from 7 patients immediately before and 24h after vertical releasing incision in oral mucosa and attached gingiva...

BACKGROUND: Fibular donor site pain management in the early postoperative period can help minimize complications, patient discomfort, and agitation. Traditional management of postoperative pain consists of systemic administration of opioids and NSAIDS. The use of local anesthetics in addition to systemic analgesics has the potential to improve pain control. Purpose of the study is to evaluate the efficacy of mini-catheters used to inject local anesthetic into the fibular donor site after flap harvesting for reconstruction of the head-and-neck area...

BACKGROUND: Minimally invasive inguinal hernia repair (IHR) in general and particularly in obese patients has not been widely adopted, potentially due to the perceived technical challenges and the well-documented learning curve associated with laparoscopic repair. Outcomes in robotic-assisted IHR in obese (BMI ≥ 30 kg/m(2)) patients have not been described and warrant study. METHODS: Seven surgeons conducted a multicenter retrospective chart review of their early robotic-assisted IHR (RHR) cases and compared them with their open IHR (OHR) cases...

A male infant, who underwent radical resection of a large glial heterotopia at the nasopharynx at 8 days, developed delayed postoperative bacterial meningitis at 9 months. Neuroradiological examination clearly demonstrated that meningitis had occurred because of the intracranial and extracranial connections, which were scarcely seen in the perioperative period. A transsphenoidal extension of hypothalamic hamartoma is possible because the connection started from the right optic nerve, running through the transsphenoidal canal in the sphenoid bone and terminating at the recurrent mass in the nasopharyngeal region...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: The number of older patients with congestive heart failure has dramatically increased. Because of stagnating cardiac transplantation, there is a need for an alternative therapy, which would solve the problem of insufficient donor organ supply. Left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) have recently become more commonly used as destination therapy (DT). Assuming that older patients show a higher risk-profile for LVAD surgery, it is expected that the increasing use of less invasive surgery (LIS) LVAD implantation will improve postoperative outcomes...

BACKGROUND CONTEXT: The aim of spinal deformity correction is to restore the spine's functional alignment by balancing it in both the sagittal and coronal planes. Regardless of posture, the ideal coronal profile is straight, and therefore readily assessable. PURPOSE: This study compares two radiological methods to determine which better predicts postoperative standing coronal balance. STUDY DESIGN/SETTING: We conducted a single-centre, radiographic comparative study between 2011 and 2015...

BACKGROUND: Various risk factors for recurrence of chronic subdural hematomas (CSDHs) have been reported, including alcohol addiction and diabetes mellitus. However, the significance of malignant tumors with respect to CSDH recurrence remains unclear. METHODS: We retrospectively evaluated 281 patients with a first-time CSDH from 2006 to 2016. The difference in the recurrence rate within 100 days postoperatively was compared between patients with a past or present extracranial malignant tumor and those with neither a past nor present extracranial malignant tumor at presentation...

BACKGROUND: To approach a ventral spinal pathology, a lateral viewing angle is often required. However, lateral approaches to the spine are usually more technically demanding and require certain amount of surgical expertise. In this report, we describe a simple and easy technique to obtain the lateral viewing angle to the ventral spinal pathology. CASE DESCRIPTION: The technique is demonstrated in a ventrally located meningioma at C2 level. Axial magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed a square posterior shift of the spinal cord with little lateral space, which necessitated a more lateral viewing angle than the conventional posterior approach...

BACKGROUND: A subset of patients with skull base cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leaks are found to have elevated intracranial pressure (ICP). In these patients, elevated ICP is thought to contribute to both the pathophysiology of the leak as well as postoperative leak recurrences. Current strategies for post-operative ICP control include medical therapy and shunting procedures. The aim of this study is to report the use of venous sinus stenting (VSS) in the management of patients with skull base CSF leaks due to elevated ICP...
