Corinne L Durand
The present study compares a knotless, barbed, absorbable suture material against a conventional monofilament absorbable suture material in oral mucosal wound closure. The parameters measured include time of closure and differences in healing at 2 and 4 weeks postoperatively. A prospective study comparing a knotless, barbed suture system with conventional absorbable sutures was undertaken in 19 cats. Nineteen cats had full mouth extractions performed. Following the extraction procedures, the incisions in the arcades (maxillary and mandibular) were apposed with the barbed, knotless suture system in a continuous pattern on one side and with a conventional smooth suture in an interrupted pattern on the other...

BACKGROUND: The osteoconductive properties of collagen containing xenogeneic bone blocks (CCXBB) remain unclear. The aim of this prospective single-arm clinical study was to assess the histological outcomes of CCXBB blocks used as bone replacement grafts for lateral bone augmentation procedures. METHODS: In 15 patients with severe horizontal alveolar ridge resorption, lateral augmentation procedures were performed using CCXBB as bone replacement grafts. Twenty-six weeks postoperatively, a re-entry procedure was performed to evaluate the bone width for adequate implant placement and two histological specimens were retrieved from each patient, one being processed for ground sectioning and the other for decalcified paraffin-included sections...

The most frequent postoperative complications after an ankle fracture are usually skin related. We present the results of a retrospective study of 112 patients with ankle fracture who had undergone open reduction and internal fixation from January 2014 to December 2014. The following features were analyzed: patient comorbidities, fracture type, the presence of an open fracture or fracture-dislocation, timing and duration of surgery, preoperative glucose level, and short-term complications (i.e., blisters, wound dehiscence, deep and superficial infections, and reintervention)...

Allen Skinner, Brook Niemiec
A 7-year-old, 31.3 kg spayed female Golden Retriever dog was presented for the treatment of Miller Class I gingival recession at the right maxillary fourth premolar (108). A semilunar coronally advanced periodontal flap was performed at this tooth and created an increase of approximately 3 mm of soft tissue coverage of the tooth. This method may have benefits over traditional periodontal advancement flaps in that there is no need for suturing, can be done more quickly, maintains lateral blood supply to the flap, and likely has decreased risk of surgical site dehiscence...

OBJECTIVE: The aim was to study the relationship between the labyrinthine portion (LP) of the facial canal and the cochlea in human inner ear molds and temporal bones using micro-CT and 3D rendering. A reduced cochlea-facial distance may spread electric currents from the cochlear implant to the LP and cause facial nerve stimulation. Influencing factors may be the topographic anatomy and otic capsule properties. METHODS: An archival collection of human temporal bones underwent micro-CT and 3D reconstruction...

Purpose The purpose of this article is to assess the diagnostic performance of computed tomography (CT) reformatted images for detection of superior semicircular canal (SSC) dehiscence. Material and methods Forty-two patients, with sound- and/or pressure-induced vestibular symptoms, and 42 control participants underwent helical CT examination with a highly collimated beam (0.5 mm). Reformatted images of the vestibular labyrinth were obtained in the standard axial and coronal planes (group A images), and in a plane parallel and perpendicular to the SSC (group B images)...

Background -Extreme BMI (either very high or very low) has been associated with increased risk of adverse perioperative outcome in adults undergoing cardiac surgery. The effect of body-mass index (BMI) on perioperative outcomes in congenital heart disease patients has not been evaluated. Methods -A multicenter retrospective cohort study was performed studying patients 10-35 years undergoing a congenital heart disease operation in the Society of Thoracic Surgeons Congenital Heart Surgery Database between 1/1/2010-12/31/2015...

INTRODUCTION: Acellular dermal matrix (ADM) assisted implant-based breast reconstruction (IBBR) has grown in popularity over traditional submuscular techniques. Numerous human, bovine or porcine derived ADMs are available with the type used varying considerably worldwide. Yet, comparative evidence for the efficacy of different ADMs particularly xenogenic is limited. This study directly compares early outcomes of porcine (Strattice™) and bovine (Surgimend™) ADMs in IBBR. METHOD: Retrospective study of sequential experience of immediate IBBR using Strattice or Surgimend ADM...

Superior semicircular canal dehiscence (SSCD) is a rare defect of the arcuate eminence that causes an abnormal connection between the superior semicircular canal and middle cranial fossa. Patients often present with a variety of auditory and vestibular symptoms. Trigger avoidance is the initial strategy, but surgery may be necessary in debilitating cases. We retrospectively reviewed SSCD patients undergoing repair via a middle fossa craniotomy between March 2011 and September 2015. Forty-nine patients undergoing 58 surgeries were identified...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to verify the accuracy of the existing scoring system for the assessment of anastomotic leakage risk after anterior resection and to identify additional risk factors that were not included in this classification. METHODS: The study included 501 consecutive rectal cancer patients who underwent anterior resection without formation of protective stoma. The risk for anastomotic leakage was determined using a previously proposed scoring system based on three factors: male sex, intraoperative blood loss and level of anastomosis...

INTRODUCTION: Our aim was to compare the effect of techniques of wound closure in the emergent colon surgery with wound class IV. METHODS: Using 2014 the colectomy targeted ACS-NSQIP dataset; we identified patients undergoing emergent colectomy with wound class IV. Comparison of surgical incision complete closure versus leaving the skin open and multivariate logistic regression analyses was performed. RESULTS: Of 1792 patients undergoing emergent colectomy with wound class IV, the complete closure cohort had 1376 patients and the incision skin open cohort had 416 patients...

BACKGROUND: Abdominoperineal resection (APR) remains the cornerstone treatment for rectal cancers less than 5 cm from the anal verge. The perineal portion of an APR can be done with the patient in lithotomy or repositioned to prone jack-knife position, which influences accessibility, visualization and ability to close the wound. This paper analyses the effect of patient positioning on perineal wound dehiscence and infections. METHODS: A retrospective review of all rectal cancer patients who underwent an APR at Massachusetts General Hospital between 2004 and 2014 (n = 149)...

This study was aimed at assessing the effects of the porous mineralized collagen plug with or without the bilayer mineralized collagen-guided bone regeneration membrane on alveolar ridge preservation in dogs. The third premolars in the bilateral maxilla of mongrel dogs ( N = 12) were extracted. Twenty-four alveolar sockets were thus randomly divided into three groups: membrane + collagen plug (MP, n = 8), nonmembrane + collagen plug (NP, n = 8) and blank group without any implantation (BG, n = 8)...

Using simultaneous transplantation of bone graft materials, this study examined the long-term outcomes of a ridge augmentation technique applied to deficient labial alveolar bone plate in the esthetic zone. Results were based on a case series in which study cases (n = 10) were divided into two groups. Group 1 exhibited intact labial alveolar bone, while group 2 alveolar bone was dehiscent at the labial aspect. The clinical outcome was longitudinally monitored using cone beam computed tomography 4 to 7 years after the procedure...
