The lips are an essential component of the symmetry and aesthetics of the face. Cosmetic surgery to modify the lips has recently gained in popularity, but the results are in some cases disasterous. In this review, we describe the features of the ideal lips for an individual's face. The features of the ideal lips with respect to facial anatomy, important anatomical landmarks of the face, the facial proportions of the lips and ethnic and sexual differences are described. The projection and relative sizes of the upper and lower lips are as significant to lip aesthetics as the proportion of the lips to the rest of the facial structure...

Initial observations from as early as the mid-1800s suggested that patients suffering from hematological malignancies would transiently go into remission upon naturally contracting viral infections laid the foundation for the oncolytic virotherapy research field. Since then, research focusing on anticancer oncolytic virotherapy has rapidly evolved. Today, oncolytic viral vectors have been engineered to stimulate and manipulate the host immune system, selectively targeting tumor tissues while sparing non-neoplastic cells...

OBJECTIVES: Residents who lost land and houses due to disasterous heavy rainfall-related events on July 13, 2004 and the Chuetsu Earthquake on October 23, 2004 were moved to emergency temporary housing. The change in life style due to living under such conditions is assumed to increase oxidative stress level. In this study, we investigated the oxidative stress level in elderly residents of emergency temporary housing, and analyzed its association with lifestyle and body composition following these disasters...

INTRODUCTION: Clinically significant coronary artery disease (CAD) in military and civilian pilots may result in disasterous consequences. Pilots with undiagnosed CAD occasionally suffer acute coronary syndrome (ACS) inflight. In single-pilot operations, ACS often ends in crew and passenger fatality. Current standards for assessing the presence of CAD are inadequate. In other nations, additional modalities are used to assess pilots for CAD. CASE: A 38-year-old F-16 pilot with no cardiac risk factors presents with chest pain following an 8-hour flight...

Despite progress in the management of esophageal perforations by early diagnosis, antibiotics, monitoring, and respiratory and nutritional support, it still remains as a disasterous condition. The most common cause of esophageal perforation is iatrogenic disruption. The result in the management of esophageal perforation is influenced by several factors: localization and size of the rupture, length of delay in diagnosis, age, extent of mediastinal and pleural contamination, the presence of underlying esophageal diseases, and inflammation or tumor at the perforation localization...

1. With technological advances, nurses in the workplace are challenged to continue the protection of confidential health records. 2. The security of health records can be viewed in three distinct categories: securing files from outside intrusion, maintaining the internal data security, and providing for recovery from disasterous events. 3. Common techniques for securing data include authenication, electronic firewalls, and data encryption.

Abnormally low plasma cystine levels have been found in the late asymptomatic stage of HIV infection and several other diseases associated with progressive loss of skeletal muscle mass. The phenomenon is commonly associated with a low NK cell activity, skeletal muscle wasting or muscle fatigue and increased rates of urea production. In its extreme form, the negative nitrogen balance leads to overt cachexia and is associated with severe debilitation and psychological stress. The low NK cell activity is in most cases not life-threatening but may be disasterous in HIV infection, because it may compromise the initially stable balance between immune system and virus and trigger disease progression...

Complete cervical disruptions are high-energy injuries often associated with polytrauma and spinal cord injury. Because these injuries disrupt all anterior and posterior stabilizers, they result in a highly unstable spine, and the injuries are usually apparent on screening radiographs. Patients with these injuries must be identified and protected during the multiple diagnostic and surgical procedures they may require during their initial evaluation and treatment. Emergency procedures must be carefully prioritized relative to other life-threatening injuries; formal evaluation of the cervical spine may be carried out before, after, or in stages around other urgently indicated procedures...

Postoperative management procedures after microsurgery are well-established. Usually, maintaining an adequate plasma volume will lower blood viscosity and will provide an adequate arterial inflow to keep the replantation or the flap viable in routine microsurgical procedures. But if the patient's underlying condition is neglected, disasterous complications may occur. The authors report two cases with severe postoperative complications after microsurgery. One patient was a 38-year-old male who suffered from diabetic foot ulcer and received a free muscle flap transfer...

Age-related macular degeneration is one of the most serious diseases in elderly people because of its disasterous visual outcome and its prevalence. Even if the submacular and choroidal neovascular membranes could be surgically excised, severe damage or evacuation of retinal pigment epithelium is inevitable in the operated area. Pigmentary dystrophy is also a devastating hereditary eye disease with severe visual disturbance. Up to now, there have been no effective treatments for either of them. We conducted basic experiments on retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) culture, transplantation of the cells to the subretinal space of animals, especially, the Royal College of Surgeon's (RCS) rat, a model of hereditary retinal degeneration, and observed their effects in preventing photoreceptor cell death...

The potential dangers of electricity and its use in the clinical setting are obvious. When clinical equipment is taken out of the clinical setting, machine malfunction or unexpected function in the hands of untrained and unskilled individuals can yield disasterous results. The benefits of community education must be weighed carefully in light of the potential danger.

A case of maternal pulmonary edema occurring in a patient in the 32nd week of gestation is presented. This was our first case of pulmonary edema seen during a period of five years' usage of isoxsuprine in the treatment of premature labor. The patient presented was 28 years old, gravida 2, para 1, admitted to the maternity ward with premature uterine contractions. Her past history eliminate cardiac or pulmonary disease. Isoxsuprine therapy was begun with initial dose of 0.04 mg/min. and increased to 0.32 mg/min...

A case of transsphenoidal meningohydroencephalocoele is presented. The clinical features and pathogenic factors are discussed briefly. An awareness of this condition should prevent attempted biopsy--which might otherwise prove disasterous. Air or contrast cisternography, with plain or computerised tomographic radiology, would seem to be the investigation of choice.

Several difficulties arise when a surgeon embarks upon the Kelman-Phaco-Emulsification method of cataract extraction. The most common but yet the least expected are technical difficulties with a soft cataract. A step by step, illustrated method of avoiding the disasterous pitfalls is outlined in order to aid the novice or occasional surgeon using phaco-emulsification on the "ideal" candidates for this operation.

Visceral artery erosion is an uncommon but disasterous complication of pancreatitis. When gastrointestinal bleeding or severe intra-abdominal hemorrhage is associated with pancreatitis and the usual sources of bleeding are not detected by endoscopy or barium studies, erosion of a visceral vessel should be suspected. We present nine cases and an additional 44 cases from previous reports are reviewed. A palpable abdominal mass was present in 59% of the patients; however, a pseudocyst was present in 78%. Arteriography was performed in 15 patients and the source of bleeding was evident in 14...
