The types of cosmetic procedures favored by Asian individuals are unique and tailored to their anatomical differences. Thus, a customized approach is taken for different cosmetic procedures, ranging from neurotoxins and fillers to nonablative fractional resurfacing. The purpose of this review article is to identify the different types of cosmetic procedures commonly sought by Asian individuals and to understand how these different procedures are customized toward their aesthetic preferences. This review integrates the findings from multiple clinical trials available on PubMed...

BACKGROUND: Utilization of unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) and patellofemoral arthroplasty (PFA) as alternatives to total knee arthroplasty (TKA) for unicompartmental knee osteoarthritis (OA) has increased. However, no single resource consolidates survivorship data between TKA and partial resurfacing options for each variant of unicompartmental OA. This meta-analysis compared survivorship between TKA and medial UKA (MUKA), lateral UKA (LUKA) and PFA using annual revision rate as a standardized metric...

BACKGROUND: Defects of the nasal ala and upper lip aesthetic subunits can be challenging to reconstruct when they occur in isolation. When defects incorporate both the subunits, the challenge is compounded as subunit boundaries also require reconstruction, and local soft tissue reservoirs alone may provide inadequate coverage. In such cases, we used nasolabial flaps for upper lip reconstruction and a forehead flap for alar reconstruction. METHODS: Three men and three women aged 21-79 years (average, 55 years) were treated for defects of the nasal ala and upper lip that resulted from cancer (n = 4) and trauma (n = 2)...

BACKGROUND: Osteochondral defects continue to be a clinical treatment challenge, and when left untreated, may cause pain and functional impairment. Pyrolytic carbon is a unique isotropic biomaterial used in heart valve and small joint replacements due to its excellent wear properties and biocompatibility with bone and articular cartilage. Therefore, a proposed solution is to utilize a focal pyrolytic carbon hemiarthroplasty implant as an alternative resurfacing treatment strategy for isolated cartilage lesions...

Reconstruction of the postburn hand remains a challenge for surgeons. For cosmetic and functional requirements, the desired flap should be thin enough to ensure the flexibility of the hand. Conventional perforator flaps serve as a viable option when reconstructing the postburn hand to regain functionality. However, limitations include the discrepancy in tissue thickness and the difficulty with donor site closure. Thus, a preexpanded superthin skin perforator flap is an ideal choice for postburn hand reconstruction, with the trade-off being a longer treatment course (3-4 months), but with results that satisfy both patients and their surgeons...

In this article, we present the pre-expanded, prefabricated supercharged cervicothoracic monoblock perforator flap for total or subtotal facial resurfacing. This technique can be a reliable reconstruction option for extensive facial skin defect with undamaged muscles and deep structures, which could provide excellent aesthetic and functional outcomes with acceptable complications. Our approach may replace a conventional "skin-only" face allotransplantation in selected patients.

The double "S" principle should be followed for facial reconstruction: the "similarity" of the donor site to the defect area and the reconstruction should be based on the different "subunits" of the face. In this article the pre-expanded, bipedicled supratrochlear perforator flap method is described, which is used for the resurfacing of both nasal and upper lip defects. This method can provide 2 independent flaps with sufficient tissue from 1 single donor site, resurfacing the nasal and upper lip units separately and providing an unparalleled color and texture match and ideal reconstructive result...

Pre-expanded perforator flaps have several advantages over their traditional counterparts owing to the thin, more pliable nature, larger size, and minimum morbidity of the donor site. Recently, plastic surgeons have begun to use pre-expanded perforator flaps to reconstruct defects of almost the entire body, including the cervicofacial region, axilla, trunk, and extremities resulting from scar, congenital melanocytic nevi, hemangiomas, and neurofibromas. Such a versatile flap is especially appropriate for face and neck resurfacing, which requires more optimal functional and cosmetic outcomes...

INTRODUCTION: Isolated patellofemoral (PF) arthritis is rare, and there is no complete agreement about the best surgical treatment. The operative treatments are total knee arthroplasty and patellofemoral replacement (PFR). The incidence of many early complications of PF arthroplasty has decreased with the introduction of newer designs. Nowadays, the main cause of revision surgery is the progression of tibiofemoral osteoarthritis. In the past, PF arthroplasty was contraindicated in patients with evidence of osteoarthritis or pain in medial or lateral tibiofemoral compartments...

BACKGROUND: Total hip arthroplasty is increasingly performed in younger, more active patients. Thirty-five percent of patients are involved in sports preoperatively, and a desire to return to sporting activity is now a major expectation. Sporting activity potentially risks premature failure of the implant, and there is no consensus or guidelines among British or European surgeons performing total hip arthroplasty in sporting patients. METHODS: The current practice of British Hip Society members was explored through a Web-based survey...

Lip and chin scarring occurs owing to reconstruction of congenital, cancer resection, or traumatic defects. Knowledge of lip anatomy and function is critical to optimize results. Realistic expectations should be established before intervention. Scar revision and reconstruction is ideally performed with a subunit approach, placing scars along aesthetic borders and performing subunit reconstruction to camouflage scars. Surgical techniques include direct excision, scar reorientation, local flap rearrangement, pedicled flaps, and regional or free flaps...

Increased failure rates due to metallic wear particle-associated adverse local tissue reactions (ALTR) is a significant clinical problem in resurfacing and total hip arthroplasty. Retrieved periprosthetic tissue of 53 cases with corrosion/conventional metallic wear particles from 285 revision operations for ALTR was selected for nano-analyses. Three major classes of hip implants associated with ALTR, metal-on-metal hip resurfacing arthroplasty (MoM HRA) and large head total hip replacement (MoM LHTHA) and non-metal-on-metal dual modular neck total hip replacement (Non-MoM DMNTHA) were included...

Topical anaesthetic cream (TAC) is commonly used as a pre-treatment of ablative fractional resurfacing (AFR) laser. Most of anaesthetic cream contains distilled water as major component. Therefore, pre-operative TAC may interfere the photothermal reaction in the skin treated with fractional carbon-dioxide (FCO2) laser and fractional erbium-doped yttrium aluminium garnet (FEr:YAG) laser. The objective of the study was to compare the ablative width (AW) and coagulative depth (CD) of AFR laser with and without pre-treatment with TAC...

Patellar fracture and anterior knee pain remain major complications after Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA). Patient-specific finite element (FE) models should help improve understanding of these complications through estimation of joint and bone mechanics. However, sensitivity of predictions on modeling techniques and approaches is not fully investigated. In particular, the importance of patellar bone anisotropy, usually omitted in FE models, on strain prediction is still unknown. The objective of this study was thus to estimate the influence of modeling patellar trabecular anisotropy on prediction of patellar strain in TKA models...

BACKGROUND: To resurface or not to resurface the patella remains a controversy in total knee arthroplasty (TKA). The purpose of this study was to assess the long-term outcomes associated with selectively not resurfacing the patella. METHODS: This was a historical cohort study of 15,497 patients with 21,371 primary TKA procedures performed at a single institution between 1985 and 2010. The cohort included 402 (2%) knees with unresurfaced patellae and 20,969 knees with all-polyethylene patellae designs...

Large impacts provide a mechanism for resurfacing planets through mixing near-surface rocks with deeper material. Central peaks are formed from the dynamic uplift of rocks during crater formation. As crater size increases, central peaks transition to peak rings. Without samples, debate surrounds the mechanics of peak-ring formation and their depth of origin. Chicxulub is the only known impact structure on Earth with an unequivocal peak ring, but it is buried and only accessible through drilling. Expedition 364 sampled the Chicxulub peak ring, which we found was formed from uplifted, fractured, shocked, felsic basement rocks...
