BACKGROUND: By providing tumor-free margins, Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS) results in high cure rates in the treatment of nonmelanoma skin cancers (NMSCs). However, when closure of the post-MMS defect is coordinated with reconstructive surgery, redundant tissue is sometimes submitted for permanent section evaluation. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of our study was to investigate the frequency and effect of this practice. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Patients (12 years and older) with NMSCs cleared by MMS with coordinated closures from 2014 to 2016 were identified...

It is common for dermatology surgery patients to present on the day of surgery with more than one skin cancer needing Mohs micrographic surgery. When these carcinomas are located near one another, it may be more practical to treat both at the same time as the reconstruction for one defect may involve or otherwise affect the treatment or reconstruction for the other carcinoma. Treating both cancers on the same day creates an opportunity for efficient repairs where a creative single reconstruction may minimize the amount of tissue wasted during reconstruction,and minimize morbidity for the patient...

The tail of bacteriophage T4 undergoes large structural changes upon infection while delivering the phage genome into the host cell. The baseplate is located at the distal end of the contractile tail and plays a central role in transmitting the signal to the tail sheath that the tailfibers have been adsorbed by a host bacterium. This then triggers the sheath contraction. In order to understand the mechanism of assembly and conformational changes of the baseplate upon infection, we have determined the structure of an in vitro assembled baseplate through the three-dimensional reconstruction of cryo-electron microscopy images to a resolution of 3...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: To review the recent literature in regards to complications after reconstruction of Mohs defects, outline common pitfalls and to discuss the literature on avoiding complications as outlined per aesthetic subunit. RECENT FINDINGS: Complications in facial Mohs reconstruction commonly consist of infection, wound necrosis and dehiscence, hematoma and suboptimal scarring. However, site-specific complications such as hairline or eyebrow distortion, eyelid retraction or ectropion, nasal contour abnormality, alar retraction, nasal valve compromise, significant facial asymmetry or even oral incompetence must also be considered...

Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is a common malignant tumor throughout the world. One of the known risk factors of BCC is intense exposure to ultraviolet radiation. More than 50% of BCCs of the eyelid initially occur on the lower lid. The gold standard of diagnosis of BCC is histopathology. Treatment options for BCC consist of surgery, vismodegib, radiotherapy and imiquimod. Surgical excision using Mohs micrographic surgery or wide surgical excision with frozen section margin control is the first consideration for treatment of periocular BCC...

For an electrohydrodynamic (EHD) jet, variables such as the direction of the meniscus and the ejection stability need to be analyzed. Thus, the EHD jet should be observed three-dimensionally (3D) because the variables can only be obtained in the 3D field, especially in unstable modes. However, if the 3D field is reconstructed from multi-directional binary images, eliminating reconstruction errors caused by invisible areas is almost impossible, even when using a tomographic technique. To solve this problem, a new 3D reconstruction method including an ellipse estimation was developed in this study...

BACKGROUND: Spatial normalization of brain images, a prerequisite for voxel based morphometry analysis, may account for the large variability of the volumetric data in medication overuse headache (MOH); possibly because this disease concerns patients differing on both sex and age, and hence with different brain size and shape. METHODS: The present study aimed at providing a subject-based analysis of macrostructure using a native space volumes segmentation (Freesurfer), and microstructure using a region of interest (ROI: i...

Trichoblastic carcinoma is a rare epithelial malignant epithelial tumor, its diagnosis is difficult and the therapeutic management is non-consensual. This retrospective study, carried out between 2009 and 2015, covered 21 cases and analyzed the diagnostic and therapeutic characteristics of trichoblastic carcinomas. Sex ratio is 2. Trichoblastic carcinoma predominated in the face (65% of cases), particularly in perinasal (30% of cases). Its clinical presentation is in 95% of cases as basal cell carcinoma, which is the first clinical diagnosis evoked...

Importance: The best surgical treatment modalities for subungual squamous cell carcinoma (SUSCC) without bone invasion need to be determined. The limited available data on Mohs micrographic surgery do not demonstrate its use as a standard procedure. A previous study in a limited series of patients has shown that wide surgical excision of the nail unit was associated with a low rate of recurrence. Objectives: To confirm the efficiency of wide surgical excision of the nail unit with full-thickness skin graft reconstruction on a series of patients with SUSCC with an extended follow-up and to evaluate short- and long-term postoperative morbidity and patient satisfaction...

Importance: Nasal reconstruction after Mohs surgery is a unique challenge in that it must satisfy both functional and aesthetic goals. Despite some advocacy in the literature for using structural reinforcement to achieve both functional and aesthetic outcomes in soft-tissue reconstruction, no study has validated this claim by comparing reconstruction with and without structural support. Objective: To evaluate the effectiveness of and need for structural reinforcement when reconstructing the nasal alar and sidewall subunits...

Staged retroauricular flap is a great option for full-thickness defects along the helical rim and antihelix. Donor site consists of the posterior ear, postauricular sulcus and mastoid area. The advantages of this flap include hidden donor scar, donor tissue similarity and rich vascularity. We present a case of collision tumor on the left helix treated with Mohs micrographic surgery and the resulting full-thickness defect repaired with a staged retroauricular flap. This flap is an effective technique for full-thickness helical defect repair with relatively little operative morbidity...

The paramedian forehead flap is a great option for restoration of complex nasal defects. For full-thickness defects, it may be used alone or in combination with other methods. We present a patient with a basal cell carcinoma on the distal nose treated by Mohs micrographic surgery, and a resulting full-thickness defect repaired with paramedian forehead flap combined with a hinge flap. For optimal results with the paramedian forehead flap, adequate surgical planning, patient orientation and meticulous surgical technique are imperative...

A variety of tumors may involve the eyelid, most of which are primary, but rarely can be metastatic. Previously reported eyelid primary carcinomas with neuroendocrine features include Merkel cell carcinoma, apocrine and eccrine gland carcinoma, sebaceous gland carcinoma, and one report of primary "well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumor." Herein we report the first case of primary cribriform carcinoma of the eyelid with neuroendocrine features. The patient is a 75-year-old black man who presented to the clinic with a 5-year history of a slowly growing, non-painful, non-exudative lesion of his left lower eyelid...

PURPOSE: Although penile cancer (PC) only represents 1% of all male cancers, the traditional treatment of total or subtotal penectomy carries devastating psychological and functional outcomes. Organ sparing surgery (OSS) in PC is an attractive option if it can provide satisfactory cancer control equivocal or near equivocal to standard techniques. In fact, these techniques are meeting increasing acceptance. Accordingly, the need to evaluate these options objectively is crucial in a comprehensive review is timely in order to increase awareness of these procedures, their applicability and provide guidance to the practicing urologist...

Although the majority of lesions present in the periocular region are benign, periocular cutaneous malignancies are certainly not uncommon and must be considered. The management of nonmelanoma cutaneous malignancies is predominately surgical with Mohs micrographic surgery or excision with frozen sections. The approach to reconstruction of the resulting defects depends on the defect location and size. When able, it is preferable to close lesions directly or with the recruitment of adjacent tissue in an effort to preserve the inherent anatomy...

BACKGROUND: Surgical reconstructive planning following Mohs surgery can be a difficult subject for dermatology residents to master. Prior research demonstrates that active learning is preferred and more effective compared to passive learning models and that dermatology residents desire greater complexity and volume in surgical training. We present a novel, active, problem-based learning tool for the education of Mohs reconstruction with the goal of improving residents' ability to plan surgical reconstructions...

Background Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the commonest periorbital tumour. Mohs' micrographic surgery and secondary reconstruction is the therapeutic gold standard for periorbital BCC. In cases of inoperability for any reason, therapeutic alternatives are needed. Since the approval of vismodegib, an orally administered, targeted BCC therapy is available. Nevertheless there is little information on the use of vismodegib for periorbital BCC. Patients and Methods In a retrospective study, we analysed the data of 4 patients treated with vismodegib since 2014...

BACKGROUND: Tumor extirpation of nonmelanoma skin cancer (NMSC) adjacent to the alar groove, using Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS), may risk causing internal nasal valve (INV) collapse, resulting in reduced airflow during inspiration. There are many surgical options described in the literature to repair INV collapse as a postoperative corrective procedure, but few exist as an intra-operative preventative procedure. OBJECTIVE: The authors present 2 distinct methods to prevent and treat INV collapse during the repair of a perialar surgical defect caused by MMS...
