PURPOSE: Plantar fasciitis is the most common cause of pain on the bottom of the heel. It occurs when the strong band of the tissue supporting the arch of foot becomes irritated and inflamed. The majority of patients can be treated conservatively but some resistant cases need surgery eventually. This study aims to evaluate the outcome results of percutaneous planter fascia release under local anesthesia for chronic planter fasciitis. METHODS: This prospective study was conducted in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery in the School of Medical Science and Research, Sharda University, India from December 2010 to December 2013...

Plantar fibromatosis is a rare, benign fibroproliferative disorder of the plantar fascia. It is considered as a low-grade tumour and it can be locally aggressive. It can present as painful swelling with impairment of local function. Upon failure of non-operative management, surgical treatment options include total fasciectomy or partial fasciectomy. Although surgical excision is the mainstay of treatment, recurrence rate can be up to 60%. The aim of this study was to determine the recurrence and complication rates of surgically treated plantar fibromatosis...

Background: The superficial facial fascia comprises the superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS) and the temporoparietal fascia (TPF) and is regarded as a continuous monolayer. However, some evidence indicates that the superficial facial fascia consists of 2 layers in specific areas. Objectives: The authors evaluated the superficial facial fascia for bilayered regions. Methods: Twenty fresh cadavers (40 hemifaces) were dissected to observe the superficial facial fascia...

Recently, a few studies have raised the question of whether preoperative chemoradiotherapy (PCRT) is essential for all T3 rectal cancers. This case-matched study aimed to compare the long-term outcomes of surgery alone with those of PCRT + surgery for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-assessed T3ab (extramural depth of invasion ≤5 mm) and absent mesorectal fascia invasion (clear MRF) in mid/lower rectal cancer patients.From January 2006 to November 2012, 203 patients who underwent curative surgery alone (n = 118) or PCRT + surgery (n = 85) were enrolled in this retrospective study...

PURPOSE: To know the limits of the preservation of the urethral plate in the correction of the curvature associated with proximal hypospadias. METHODS: From January 2002 to January 2015, we treated 224 patients of proximal hypospadias. In 182 cases, we used of the lateral pictures taken during the successive saline erection tests to measure the correction obtained after each stage. RESULTS: The analysis of the lateral pictures taken at the successive saline erection tests clearly demonstrated that release of the skin and dartos fascia provides an important correction of the chordee...

INTRODUCTION: The medial thighplasty is a procedure where patients may attain superior mobility, hygiene, and cosmesis. Most surgeons use attachment of the superficial fascial system (SFS) of the thigh flap to the Colles fascia, whereas others attach the SFS to the pubic ramus periosteum. Because of a high complication profile, we aim to elucidate the clinical, biomechanical, and anatomic qualities of the Colles fascia versus the pubic ramus periosteum. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We performed a 17-year retrospective review documenting clinical complications, a biomechanical analysis of sutures placed in different tissue layers of the thigh, and a histologic analysis surrounding the ischiopubic ramus...

PURPOSE: Reduction is a crucial step in the surgical treatment of bone fractures. Finding an optimal path for restoring anatomical alignment is considered technically demanding because collisions as well as high forces caused by surrounding soft tissues can avoid desired reduction movements. The repetition of reduction movements leads to a trial-and-error process which causes a prolonged duration of surgery. By planning an appropriate reduction path-an optimal sequence of target-directed movements-these problems should be overcome...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Posthysterectomy vaginal vault prolapse repair is a surgical challenge. Successful surgical management using native tissue can be achieved via the vaginal approach by iliococcygeus fascia fixation. However, although iliococcygeus fascia fixation is technically simple and has a low morbidity, it is not commonly performed. The aim of the video is to provide anatomic views and the surgical steps necessary to achieve successful transvaginal iliococcygeus fascia fixation for vaginal vault prolapse repair...

BACKGROUND: Increasing demand for total hip arthroplasty (THA) in a climate of increasing focus on clinical outcomes, patient satisfaction, and cost has created a need for better acute postoperative pain control for patients. An ideal pain control method would have few side effects, decreased opioid consumption, improved pain control, early ambulation, and decreased hospital length of stay (LOS). METHODS: We performed a prospective randomized, controlled study involving 79 patients undergoing elective THA between June 2015 and February 2016...

OBJECTIVES: Temporalis fascia has become the most widely used graft for tympanoplasty, as it is strong, durable, and easy to procure and handle. However, the type of temporalis fascia graft to use (i.e. dry or wet) remains controversial. The present review aimed to evaluate the success rates of dry and wet temporalis fascia grafts in type I underlay tympanoplasty. METHODS: A literature search was performed, using PubMed up to August 2016, to identify all studies of dry and wet temporalis fascia grafts in type I underlay tympanoplasty...

Lichtenstein hernioplasty is the number one technique worldwide for open, mesh-based inguinal hernia repair. The principle of Lichtenstein hernioplasty is the tension-free reinforcement of the abdominal wall by covering the transversalis fascia and the oblique muscles with an artificial patch of mesh. The Lichtenstein technique has been modified since its inception. The technique has the benefits of low costs and a rapid learning curve and can be performed with the patient under local anesthesia. The recurrence rates after the Lichtenstein operation are significantly lower compared to open suture repair and equal to laparoendoscopic techniques...

AIM: A proportion of locally advanced rectal cancer patients who receive neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy (NACRT) are still unresectable. This study was undertaken to assess the outcomes of giving additional chemotherapy to rectal cancer patients with unresectable disease after NACRT. METHODS: Patients with poor response to NACRT where mesorectal fascia was still involved on MRI and R0 resection was doubtful, received additional four cycles of chemotherapy with either CAPOX or FOLFIRINOX regimen, and the response was reevaluated with MRI and reassessed for surgical resection...

Pelvic disorders can be associated with changes in the biomechanical properties in the muscle, ligaments and/or connective tissue form fascia and ligaments. In this sense, the study of their mechanical behavior is important to understand the structure and function of these biological soft tissues. The aim of this study was to establish the biomechanical properties of the pelvic floor muscles of continent and incontinent women, using an inverse finite element analysis (FEA). The numerical models, including the pubovisceral muscle and pelvic bones were built from magnetic resonance (MR) images acquired at rest...

Morphea, also known as localized scleroderma, encompasses a group of idiopathic sclerotic skin diseases. The spectrum ranges from relatively mild phenotypes, which generally cause few problems besides local discomfort and visible disfigurement, to subtypes with severe complications such as joint contractures and limb length discrepancies. Eosinophilic fasciitis (EF, Shulman syndrome) is often regarded as belonging to the severe end of the morphea spectrum. The exact driving mechanisms behind morphea and EF pathogenesis remain to be elucidated...

Eosinophilic fasciitis is a rare sclerodermiform syndrome of unknown etiology. It is characterized by the thickening of the muscular fascia and subcutaneous tissue, with a variable infiltration of eosinophils. Peripheral eosinophilia, poly or monoclonal hypergammaglobulinemia and increased erythrocyte sedimentation rate can be seen. Clinical features begin acutely, with local edema and a painful and symmetrical stiffening of the limbs, progressing rapidly to fibrosis, which can limit joint movements. Some cases have a history of strenuous physical exercise or trauma...

OBJECTIVES: Surgical rehabilitation of facial palsy is challenging as each case is unique and success rate is often unpredictable. In one technique, temporalis is elevated from origin preserving vessels, and this elevation increases the length which is tunneled into buccal tissues (pull-through technique, Group A). In the other technique, a harvested fascia lata is attached to temporalis after a coronoidectomy release and the fascia lata is attached to the modiolus (Group B). The aim of this study is to compare the two different surgical techniques...
