BACKGROUND: Surgery for severe peritonitis often entails difficult wound closure and may require open abdominal management due to gut edema and/or concern of abdominal compartment syndrome. Negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) is known to have good outcomes for wound closure after surgery for severe peritonitis. NPWT with continuous mesh fascial traction may result in even better outcomes, especially for fascial closure. CASE PRESENTATION: An 81-year-old man was hospitalized for abdominal pain...

Purpose: Desmoid-type fibromatosis is a benign fibrous neoplasia originating from connective tissue, fascial planes, and musculoaponeurotic structures of the muscles. Currently, there is no evidence-based treatment approach available for desmoid fibromatosis. In this article, a case of a patient in the pediatric age affected by desmoid fibromatosis localized in the orbit is presented. The aim of the article is to describe this unusual and rare location for the desmoid fibromatosis and outline the principle phases in the decision-making process and the therapeutic alternatives for a patient affected by desmoid fibromatosis...

INTRODUCTION: Odontogenic infections originate from a tooth or from its supporting structures, generally secondary to a pulp necrosis, periodontal disease, pericoronitis, apical lesions, or complications of dental procedures, which can be restricted to the alveolus or can reach the jaws and face through maxillofacial spaces. These are the most common conditions which affect the head and neck regions. AIM: The aim of this study is to report a severe case of a cervicofacial odontogenic infection while discussing the most relevant aspects...

BACKGROUND: Hemophilic arthropathy is characterized by loss of function and chronic pain. Fascial therapy mobilizes the connective tissue, intervening in the state of the injured fascial complex and the surrounding tissues. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study is to evaluate the safety of a physiotherapy program through fascial therapy in adult patients with hemophilic ankle arthropathy. DESIGN: Prospective cohort study. METHODS: Twenty-three adult patients with hemophilia from 26 to 65 years of age were recruited...

Every body structure is wrapped in connective tissue or fascia, creating a structural continuity that gives form and function to every tissue and organ. The fascial tissue is uniformly distributed throughout the body, enveloping, interacting with and permeating blood vessels, nerves, viscera, meninges, bones and muscles, creating various layers at different depths and forming a tridimensional metabolic and mechanical matrix. This article reviews the literature on the emission of biophotons and adjustable sounds by the fascial system, because these biological changes could be a means of local and systemic cellular communication and become another assessment tool for manual (therapy) practitioners...

Puja Patel, Shannon Scott, Sean Cunningham
The diagnosis and management of parotitis can be challenging. Patients often present with pain and edema in the neck, jaw, head, and ear due to congestion of the gland. Parotitis is typically caused by an infection within the parotid gland and surrounding lymph nodes, and the infection can spread to nearby cervical fascial planes and cause major complications if not managed successfully. Specific guidelines for the outpatient management of parotitis are limited, and outpatient treatment failures are common, requiring inpatient therapy with multiple broad-spectrum antibiotics...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: First recognized in 1974, eosinophilic fasciitis (EF) is a fibrosing disorder of the fascia with characteristic cutaneous and hematologic manifestations. This review discusses recent trends in the diagnosis and treatment of EF. RECENT FINDINGS: Although fascial biopsy has classically been considered the gold standard for making a diagnosis of EF, radiologic imaging, particularly magnetic resonance imaging, has been increasingly used for both diagnosis and monitoring of treatment response...

REVIEW
T Volk, C Kubulus
Regional anesthesia has undergone many changes over the years and the increasing use of ultrasound has certainly played an important role in this. Apart from individual case reports in the literature of very different blocking options, some new procedures seem to have become established and can be broadly applied. Among these are blockades, by which ultrasound-guided injection of local anesthetics is carried out in fascial or muscular layers rather than around target nerves (e.g. cervical plexus blocks and truncal blocks)...

Background: Actinomycosis is a condition in which Actinomyces, a normal component of the oral and gastrointenstial flora, becomes pathogenic in the setting of damaged tissue, leading to widespread tissue destruction across fascial planes. Prior literature describing this condition is rare, particularly cases involving the retroperitoneum. In this study, we report a case of retroperitoneal actinomycosis caused by an infected, obstructing ureteral stone. Case Presentation: A 48-year-old woman with a history of substance abuse, malnutrition, and gastric bypass presented to the emergency room with a 3-week history of abdominal pain and fevers...

Necrotizing fasciitis (NF) is an infection of the soft tissues pathology with high mortality that spreads through the fascial planes and rarely seen in head and neck region. The cause of infection is often odontogenic problems. Broad-spectrum antibiotics, surgical debridement, and hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO) are important for the treatment of disease. We report a case of cervical NF in a 33-year-old woman who was treated with rapid surgical debridement and simultaneous HBO.

The most recent information on fascial tissue indicates that there are not fascial layers, but polyhedral microvacuoles of connective tissue, which connect the body systems and, by hosting specialized cells, permit several functions, such as motor, nervous, vascular and visceral. These microvacuoles (a repetition of polyhedral units of connective fibrils) under internal or external tension change shape and can manage the movement variations, regulating different body functions and ensuring the maintenance of efficiency of the body systems...

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to characterize associations among serum proteins, negative-pressure wound therapy (NPWT) fluid loss, and primary fascial closure (PFC) following emergent laparotomy and temporary abdominal closure (TAC). We hypothesized that high levels of C-reactive protein (CRP) and NPWT output would be associated with hypoalbuminemia and failure to achieve PFC. METHODS: We performed a retrospective analysis of 233 patients managed with NPWT TAC...

Rotator cuff tear is a common disease affecting patients after stroke. It's a cause of pain and dysfunction that may compromise normal stroke rehabilitation. For many cases there is still controversy between whether to use surgical or conservative intervention. Treatment for cuff tears range from physical therapy to surgery. This paper describes for the first time the effect of Fascial Manipulation® (FM®) on rotator cuff tear in a post stroke patient. A 69 year old female stroke patient with full absence of distal components of the tendons of the rotator cuff, functional limitations on active movement of shoulder flexion and abduction of the left arm and perceived pain scored 10/10 on the Visual Analogic Scale, was assessed and treat with one session of FM® A basic theory that explains the healing results of FM® is that mechanoreceptors, such as spindle cells and other receptors, are located in the deep fascia and activated when movement are performed...

INTRODUCTION: The optimal management of the open abdomen (OA) after liver transplantation (LT) is unclear. The negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) has been shown to be safe and can increase the chance for early fascial closure in trauma or septic patients. However, little data are available on the specific setting of LT. We aimed to report our experience of OA after LT, marked by the recent use of NPWT. METHODS: All patients with postponed wall closure after LT, from 2002 to 2014, in a single institution were included and retrospectively analyzed...
