A 14-year-old neutered male crossbreed dog was presented for weakness, cough and weight loss. Cardiac auscultation revealed tachycardia, arrhythmia and a grade V/VI left apical systolic heart murmur. Thoracic radiographs showed a large homogeneous soft tissue opacity in close contact with the cardiac silhouette in the left cranioventral mediastinum. Cardiac evaluation showed atrial fibrillation, degenerative mitral valve disease and a dilated left auricular appendage outside the pericardium consistent with herniation through a partial pericardial defect...

This paper describes an automated method for registering three-dimensional models of metallic knee implants to single-plane radiographic images. We develop a pyramidal approach that identifies the correct pose by matching decreasing dilations of an edge-detected image with the silhouette of an implant model. The location of the similarity function's minimum is found using a novel optimization routine that combines the DIRECT (Dividing Rectangles) algorithm with properties of the Lipschitz constant specific to the registration metric...

The early Middle Eocene locality of Grube Messel, near Darmstadt (Germany), is famous for its complete vertebrate skeletons. The degree of preservation of soft tissues, such as body silhouettes, internal organs and gut contents, is frequently remarkable. The present specimen was analyzed for remnants of the reproductive system. Classic anatomy and osteology and high-resolution micro-x-ray were applied to describe the fetus of the European Eocene equoid Eurohippus messelensis. Scanning electronic microscopy (SEM) was used for determination of soft tissue remnants...

A 37-year-old female yellow-naped Amazon parrot (Amazona auropalliata) was presented with a history of lethargy, inappetence, and decreased vocalizations. On examination, the coelom was moderately distended and palpated fluctuant, and the heart was muffled on auscultation. Coelomic ultrasound, coelomocentesis, and radiographs were performed and revealed an enlarged cardiac silhouette and marked coelomic effusion. Pericardial effusion was confirmed by echocardiography. A well-circumscribed, hyperechoic soft tissue density was observed at the level of the right atrium on initial echocardiography; however, a cardiac mass was not identified by computed tomography scan or repeat echocardiograms...

INTRODUCTION: Severe cervical contracture after burns causes obvious impairment of neck movement and the aesthetic silhouette. Although various surgical techniques for treatment have been described, there is not a definitive strategy to guide treatment. Over the past 6 years, we have been utilizing a region-oriented and staged treatment strategy to guide reconstruction of severe cervical contracture. Satisfactory results have been achieved with this strategy. METHODS: The first stage of treatment focuses on the anterior cervical region and submental region...

An adult male sun conure (Aratinga solstitialis) was evaluated because of lethargy, ruffled feathers, and decreased appetite. Physical examination revealed hypothermia, dehydration, dyspnea, and crop distention. Results of a complete blood cell count revealed a marked inflammatory leukogram, and cytologic examination of a crop swab sample identified gram-negative bacilli and occasional yeast organisms. Radiographs demonstrated an opaque, ill-defined, soft tissue structure in the caudal coelom just cranial to the renogonadal silhouette, loss of serosal detail, and splenomegaly...

Misregistration due to cardiac motion causes artifacts in two-exposure dual-energy subtraction images, in both the soft-tissue-only image and the bone-only image. Two previous investigations have attempted to avoid misregistration artifacts by using cardiac gating of the first and second exposures. The severity of misregistration was affected by the heart rate, the time interval between the low- and high-energy exposures, the total duration of the two exposures, and the phase of the cardiac cycle at the start of the exposure sequence...

OBJECTIVES: To validate the effectiveness of the original standards of True Vertical (TV) Subnasal Line in orthognatic surgery planning. The present study evaluates the changes occurring in patients with skeletal Class II alterations programmed for orthognathic surgery with a view to improving their facial profile. STUDY DESIGN: [corrected] We showed a series of black profiles (composed by a first control group of subjects with normal occlusion, and another two additional groups comprised patients before -Group 2- and after orthognatic surgical correction of Class II malocclusion -Group 3-) for three groups of observers (orthodontists, surgeons and laypeople)...

The purpose of this study was to assess the medium-term results of using thread-lift sutures as a means to support soft tissues in facial reconstructive surgery. The rationale for the introduction of this method was to provide support for tissues used in the reconstruction in cases where this would otherwise have been difficult to achieve, or would have demanded major additional surgery in patients already undergoing major surgical procedures. The outcome of the procedure was assessed 12 and 24 months after surgery...

BACKGROUND: Tumor excision causes disfigurement in the breast. We present our technique for filling the defect with activated platelet gel, thus avoiding the deformity. METHODS: Between 2006 and 2011, 23 patients (age range, 45-72 years) underwent tumorectomy for breast cancer. After estimating and extracting the volume of blood required, we centrifuged the blood at 1800 rpm for 8 minutes. Later, the middle and lower thirds of the plasma) were separated and activated with CaCl₂ at a ratio of 1/20, forming a gel, which was used to fill the tumorectomy cavity...

INTRODUCTION: Patient photos and silhouettes are commonly used in clinical evaluations and orthodontic research to evaluate profile esthetics. The purpose of this study was to determine whether the use of photos or silhouettes is a more appropriate method of evaluating African American profile esthetics and whether there are different profile esthetic preferences among clinicians when using photos compared with silhouettes. METHODS: Pretreatment records of 20 adolescent African American patients were selected (10 male, 10 female) from the orthodontic clinic at the Albert Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia...

Methods of alloplastic forehead augmentation using soft expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) and silicone implants are described. Soft ePTFE forehead implantation has the advantage of being technically simpler, with better fixation. The disadvantages are a limited degree of forehead augmentation and higher chance of infection. Properly fabricated soft silicone implants provide potential for larger degree of forehead silhouette augmentation with less risk of infection. The corrugated edge and central perforations of the implant minimize mobility and capsule contraction...
