Sigmoid sinus cortical plate dehiscence (SSCPD) is common in pulsatile tinnitus (PT) patients, and is treated through SSCPD resurfacing surgery in clinic, but the bio-mechanism is not clear as so far. This study aimed to clarify the bio-mechanism of PT sensation induced by SSCPD, and quantify the relationship of cortical plate (CP) thickness and PT sensation intensity. It was hypothesized that SSCPD would induce PT through significantly amplifying sigmoid sinus (SS) venous sound in this study. Finite element (FE) analysis based on radiology data of typical patient was used to verify this hypothesis, and was validated with clinical reports...

BACKGROUND: The CO2 laser has become the gold standard treatment in dermatologic surgery for the treatment of a large number of skin and mucosal lesions. The introduction of the fractional micro-ablative technology represented an integration to the ablative resurfacing technique, reducing the healing time and the side effects. OBJECTIVE: Vaginal rejuvenation performed with this technique is a minimally invasive procedure that stimulates internal tissues of the female lower genital tract to regenerate the mucosa, improving tissue trophism and restoring the correct functionality...

During my training and my early faculty tenure, there was a picture of a dust-caked, grizzled cowboy that hung between the two primary cardiac operating rooms. Beneath the picture was written, "There are a lot of things about this job they didn't tell me when I signed on." When we moved into our new hospital, the picture did not resurface. However, I never forgot the lesson conveyed by that picture. One of the most important obligations faculty members have is to help their trainees find a job. While their trainees have likely had part-time jobs and, of course, they've held training positions, they usually have not had a 'real' job before...

The aim of this study was to describe the histological features of erosive hand osteoarthritis (EHOA), which is considered an aggressive subset of hand osteoarthritis (OA) characterized by severe local inflammation and degeneration of the distal and proximal interphalangeal joints. Two patients with EHOA underwent replacement with a cement-free press fit ceramic prosthesis of a proximal interphalangeal joint (PIPJ). Clinical and radiological data were collected and histological examination was performed. Radiological examination with histological correlation showed complete erosion of the articular cartilage with focal presence of peripheral fibrocartilaginous resurfacing, sclerosis, and remodeling of the exposed bone, osteoclastic activity with resorptive lacunae in the subchondral bone and around degenerative fibromyxoid pseudocysts, coarse trabeculation of the cancellous bone, and marginal osteophytes...

OBJECTIVES: Young patients feel that maintaining sport activities after total hip arthroplasty constitutes an important part of their quality of life. The majority of hip surgeons allow patients to return to low-impact activities, but significant caution is advised to taking part in high-impact activities. The purpose of this study is to compare and evaluate the post-operative return to daily living habits and sport activities following short-metaphyseal hip and high functional total hip arthroplasties (resurfacing and big femoral head arthroplasties)...

BACKGROUND: The reconstruction of major burn and other deformities resulting from significant soft tissue deficits of the face is a continuing challenge for surgeons. In the study, the authors introduce our 5-year experiences using expanded flap in the neck for reconstruction on the mid and lower face. METHODS: From 2008 and 2013, 12 tissue expanders were used in 12 patients for face resurfacing. The operation consisted of 2 steps. In the first step, the expander was placed subcutaneously under the skin of the neck and they were expanded timely to create adequate superfluous skin and soft tissue...

A design concept was formulated for implants to treat medial osteoarthritis of the knee, using a metal plate resurfacing of the tibia plateau and a plastic bearing embedded in the distal end of the femur. A finite element analysis was carried out to determine whether a metal backing would be needed for the femoral component, and to what extent the stress and strain distribution in the trabecular bone surrounding the implant would match the normal intact condition. The CT scans from three knees scheduled for unicompartmental replacement were selected to generate computer models with variable bone densities in each element to cover a range of density patterns...

Penile cancer is a rare malignancy worldwide, representing only 1% of all cancers affecting men. There is little data outlining the comparative effectiveness of penile preservation techniques, and no guidelines regarding their use currently exist. Outcomes data reporting is non-standardised, and follow-up not measured consistently. The aim of this study was to outcomes of total glans resurfacing (TGR) in oncological control, form and function in localized penile cancer MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between 2013-2015, 19 prospectively-enrolled patients underwent total glans resurfacing...

Resurfacing large facial defect is a continuing challenge for plastic surgeons. Skin graft or free flap is hard to obtain satisfactory results or is beyond the skill of most surgeons. The authors performed 13 expended submental island flaps to resurface middle and lower facial defects and achieved satisfactory results. In the first stage operation, the authors implanted one soft tissue expander in the anterior neck region which was expanded over an average of 3 months. In the second stage operation, the authors elevated the expanded submental island flap to resurface facial defect...

The proportion of men receiving non-surgical cosmetic procedures has risen substantially in recent years. Various physiologic, anatomic, and motivational considerations differentiate the treatments for male and female patients. Nevertheless, research regarding approaches to the male cosmetic patient is scarce. We sought to provide an overview and sex-specific discussion of the most popular cosmetic dermatologic procedures pursued by men by conducting a comprehensive literature review pertaining to non-surgical cosmetic procedures in male patients...

At the beginning of the 21st century, use of large-diameter, metal-on-metal devices was a popular procedure for hip replacement in young and physically active patients; however, within a few years, the number of revisions increased, resulting in a worldwide recall for the articular surface replacement (ASR) system. Complication rates for the ASR devices implanted at the authors' department are reported, with revision rates of 32% and 30% in the ASR XL Head and ASR Resurfacing groups, respectively. Reasons for revision surgery were serum metal ion elevation, luxation or subluxation, aseptic loosening, soft tissue compromise (adverse reactions to metal debris [ARMD]), and infection...
