PURPOSE: Pterygium is a common ocular surface disorder. Conjunctival autografting (CAG) following pterygium resection is the gold standard treatment. CAGs without Tenon's tissue provide better results but are more technically difficult to achieve. In this study, we evaluated the feasibility and reproducibility of femtosecond laser (FSL)-assisted CAG preparation. METHODS: Fifteen porcine globes were fixed in a suction holder and CAGs of different diameters were created by 1) an experienced consultant and 2) a less experienced fellow using the Ziemer LDV Z8...

Plexiform angiomyxoid myofibroblastic tumor (PAMT) is a rare benign mesenchymal tumor of stomach. Rarity of this kind of tumors and scarce review articles may cause underrecognition of this entity and pose a real diagnostic challenge to gastroenterologists, pathologists and surgeons when encountering such patients and differentiating PAMT from other gastric intramural tumors. We report a case of 28-year-old woman, who presented with epigastric pain after meals, iron-deficiency anaemia and weight loss. Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy revealed submucosal tumor-like elevated lesion in the anterior wall of the antrum with intact overlying mucosa...

REVIEW
Clara K Poon, Christopher T Chan
Home hemodialysis (HHD) is emerging as an important alternate renal replacement therapy. Although there are multiple clinical advantages with HHD, concerns surrounding increased risks of infection in this group of patients remain a major barrier to its implementation. In contrast to conventional hemodialysis, infection related complication represents the major morbidity in this mode of renal replacement therapy. Vascular access related infection is an important cause of infection in this population. Use of central vein catheters and buttonhole cannulation in HHD are important modifiable risk factors for HHD associated infection...

Although intensive hemodialysis (HD) can address important clinical problems, increasing treatment also introduces risks. In this review, we assess risks pertaining to 6 domains: vascular access complications, infection, mortality, loss of residual kidney function, solute balance, and patient and care partner burden. In the Frequent Hemodialysis Network (FHN) trials, short daily and nocturnal schedules increased the incidence of access complications, although the incidence of access loss was not statistically higher...

As a consequence of the central role of the arteriovenous fistula for dialysis (AVF) in the clinical management of the dialysis patient the necessity to limit the puncture-related complications to extend as much as possible the life of the vascular access. Accordingly, the AVF needling technique has gained growing attention. Alongside the traditional rope ladder (RL) puncture method, the buttonhole technique (BH) is increasingly popular; this technique employs the same cannulation sites of AVF in every dialysis associated with the use of dull needles to minimize vessels damage...

PURPOSE: To report the rate of flap-related complications in LASIK surgery performed by in-training ophthalmology residents and to analyze the risk factors for these complications. METHODS: We analyzed 273 flap dissections in 145 patients from March 2013 to February 2014. We included all LASIK surgeries performed by 32 ophthalmology residents using a Moria M2 microkeratome. All the flap-related complications were noted. Comparison between both groups with and without complications was performed with an independent Student's t-test and relative risks were calculated...

"Buttonholing" of the radial head through the anterior joint capsule is a known cause of irreducible anterior radial head dislocation associated with Monteggia injuries in pediatric patients. To the best of our knowledge, no report has described an injury consisting of buttonholing of the radial head through the annular ligament and a simultaneous radial head fracture in an adolescent. In the present case, the radiographic findings were a radial head fracture with anterior dislocation and lack of the anterior fat pad sign...

OBJECTIVE: To perform a 12 month follow-up study to assess the safety and effectiveness of resection and conjunctival autograft fixed with Tissucol® in selected cases of large pterygium. The orientation of the graft was adapted to the morphology of the scleral bed for a better coverage free of traction, with limbal position being lost. METHODS: A prospective, non-comparative study of 10 cases of grade II or superior pterygium (7 primary, 3 recurrent) with at least 8mm of limbal extension...

Successful cannulation of arteriovenous fistulas (AVFs) using a safe and effective technique that minimizes patient harm is a crucial aspect of haemodialysis treatment. Although the current standard of care for many years has been the rope-ladder technique (using sharp needles to cannulate rotating sites across the entire AVF), a number of enthusiasts have recently advocated for the alternative method of buttonhole cannulation (using blunt needles to repeatedly cannulate the same site via a healed track) on the basis of putative, as yet unproven benefits...

Potential advantages of buttonhole (BH) cannulation over the standard rope-ladder technique have been claimed on the basis of small sized, potentially biased observational studies with a relatively short follow-up. On the contrary, randomized controlled trials (RCTs) show inconclusive or conflicting results. The uncertain benefit must thus be weighed against a definite increase in the infectious risk with the BH technique, which may not be completely abolished by preventative strategies. Awaiting the results of long-term studies (>2-3 years follow-up), the widespread use of the BH technique is not warranted, especially in busy in-centre haemodialysis (HD) settings with many rotating nurses...

Arteriovenous fistulae remain the access of choice for most hemodialysis patients. However, several factors limit their uptake and long-term patency, resulting in suboptimal prevalent rates in many high-income countries. Patients place considerable value on the avoidance of vascular access complications, pain and disfigurement. The approach to cannulation is a modifiable practice that could improve patient-important outcomes, with buttonhole needling offering some theoretical advantages over the standard rope-ladder and area methods...

Arteriovenous fistula (AVF) is the preferred access for hemodialysis (HD). Buttonhole (BH) needling has increased following the introduction of "blunt" fistula needles. Although some reported advantages for BH needling, others have reported increased infection risk. As such we reviewed our center practice, and the effect of both nasal screening and eradication and re-education and training programs. We audited the outcomes of 881 HD patients dialyzed between November 2009 and May 2012, divided into three groups: 175 dialyzing exclusively by central venous catheter (CVC), 478 exclusively by area needling AVF (AVF) and 219 by BH...

The purpose of this study was to determine whether single-piece hydrophilic acrylic intraocular lens can be safely implanted without the use of ophthalmic viscosurgical devices. This retrospective study comprised 100 eyes having phacoemulsification and intraocular lens implantation without the use of ophthalmic viscosurgical device. 80 eyes with the use of a viscosurgical device are used as control group. In this intraocular lens implantation technique, the anterior chamber was maintained with an irrigation cannula and intraocular lens was implanted with a lens injector...

PURPOSE: In this study, we discuss a mechanism of development of access-related Staphylococcus aureus infections in patients on buttonhole (BH) method and logically construct a measure to prevent such infections on the basis of the mechanism. SUMMARY: S. aureus can colonize a BH track. Once S. aureus colonizes a BH track, access-related infections may develop when the equilibrium is upset between the factors of host resistance and a level of bacterial growth in a BH track...

BACKGROUND: Buttonhole cannulation (BHC) has been associated with a greater risk of arteriovenous fistula (AVF)-related infections and septicemia than the rope ladder cannulation (RLC) in in-center hemodialysis (HD). Such infections have never been studied in satellite HD units. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective single center study. SETTING AND PARTICIPANT: All patients in our satellite HD unit using a native AVF from 1 January, 1990, to 31 December, 2012...

BACKGROUND: Patients undergoing nipple-sparing mastectomy and immediate-implant based reconstruction occasionally require a mastopexy based on their breast size and degree of ptosis. Previous reports have shown the feasibility of mastopexy-nipple-sparing mastectomy in selected patients to raise the nipple up to 5 cm. Major mastopexy with nipple transposition more than 6 cm in conjunction with nipple-sparing mastectomy for therapeutic indications has not been described. The authors review their experience with primary buttonhole mastopexy performed in conjunction with nipple-sparing mastectomy...
