The mechanical behavior of biological tissues has been studied using a number of mechanical models. Due to the relatively high fluid content and mobility, many biological tissues have been modeled as poroelastic materials. Diseases such as cancers are known to alter the poroelastic response of a tissue. Tissue poroelastic properties such as compressibility, interstitial permeability and fluid pressure also play a key role for the assessment of cancer treatments and for improved therapies. At the present time, however, a limited number of poroelastic models for soft tissues are retrievable in the literature, and the ones available are not directly applicable to tumors as they typically refer to uniform tissues...

INTRODUCTION: Proteus syndrome (PS) is a rare mosaic disorder comprising asymmetric bony and soft tissue overgrowth leading to significant morbidity. Placement of growth inhibition hardware with subsequent epiphyseal arrest improves leg-length and angular deformities in pediatric patients without PS. The purpose of this study was to review the surgical approach and present outcomes, complications, and recommendations in 8 patients with PS and leg-length discrepancy (LLD). METHODS: We conducted a retrospective chart review of 8 patients with PS whose primary reason for surgery was LLD...

INTRODUCTION: Tumoral calcinosis is a rare benign disease, defined by the presence of calcified deposits in periarticular tissues. It can be hereditary or secondary at chronic renal failure at the stage of dialysis. This work illustrates the contribution of single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT/CT) in the diagnosis and management of tumoral calcinoses in a chronic hemodialysis patient, based on a clinical case. CASE REPORT: A 62-year-old patient, chronic hemodialysis since 24 years, presented a mechanical pain shoulders, knees and hips with limitation of joint mobility...

Laparoscopic liver surgery is challenging to perform due to a compromised ability of the surgeon to localize subsurface anatomy in the constrained environment. While image guidance has the potential to address this barrier, intraoperative factors, such as insufflation and variable degrees of organ mobilization from supporting ligaments, may generate substantial deformation. The severity of laparoscopic deformation in humans has not been characterized, and current laparoscopic correction methods do not account for the mechanics of how intraoperative deformation is applied to the liver...

Objective: The purpose of this pilot study was to evaluate the feasibility and efficacy of adding cryostimulation to manual therapy in patients with chronic lateral epicondylitis. Methods: The control group (n = 19) was treated with manual therapy consisting of soft-tissue therapy and radial head mobilizations. The experimental group (n = 18) received cryostimulation in addition to manual therapy care similar to that for the control group. Both protocols consisted of 8 treatments over a 4-week period...

Excessive pressures exerted on the tongue during intubation may be associated with serious complications and may make intubation more difficult. The aim of this study was to evaluate five different intubating devices in the hands of experienced anaesthetists during simulated conditions of reduced cervical spine mobility. Forty senior anaesthetists participated in the study (female = 18, male = 22). The mean pressure exerted on the tongue during intubation was recorded with a standard manometer. The overall intubation success rate as well as the difference in exerted pressures between female and male anaesthetists were also assessed...

Reconstruction of pretibial skin and soft-tissue defects remains a challenge because this area has less underlying tissues and limited tissue mobility. Here, we present a retrospective review of our experience with pretibial reconstruction using the keystone-designed perforator island flap (KDPIF) in patients with comorbidities. All defects resulted from nononcological causes. We describe the expanding versatility of KDPIF reconstruction for pretibial defects and suggest a simple algorithmic approach. The medical records of 9 patients who underwent reconstruction with a KDPIF to cover a pretibial defect between May 2016 and June 2017 were reviewed...

CASE: A large surgical correction was required for severe hip dysplasia, which was associated with a delayed-onset sciatic nerve injury in an adolescent patient. A cortical bone spur on the outside of the acetabular fragment produced an indirect injury that became symptomatic during mobilization of the patient. CONCLUSION: The risk of direct injury to the sciatic nerve during a periacetabular osteotomy is quite low when the osteotomy is executed in extension with abduction of the hip and flexion of the knee to reduce tension on the sciatic nerve...

The advent or micro-vascular free tissue transfer has facilitated the reconstruction of increasingly complex head and neck defects. There are multiple donor sites available, each with its' own advantages and disadvantages. However, the subscapular system, including the thoracodorsal system, provides the widest array of soft tissue and osseous flaps, as well as chimeric options. Its advantages include a long pedicle, independently mobile tissue components, relative sparing from atherosclerosis, and minimal donor site morbidity...

In this review, we highlight the complexities of the natural history, biology, and clinical management of three intermediate connective tissue tumors: desmoid tumor (DT) or aggressive fibromatosis, tenosynovial giant cell tumor (TGCT) or diffuse-type pigmented villonodular synovitis (dtPVNS), and giant cell tumor of bone (GCTB). Intermediate histologies include tumors of both soft tissue and bone origin and are locally aggressive and rarely metastatic. Some common aspects to these tumors are that they can be locally infiltrative and/or impinge on critical organs, which leads to disfigurement, pain, loss of function and mobility, neurovascular compromise, and occasionally life-threatening consequences, such as mesenteric, bowel, ureteral, and/or bladder obstruction...

Soft tissue sarcomas (STSs) remain a therapeutic challenge for pediatric and adolescent and young adult (AYA) patients. Still today, surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy remain the mainstay of treatment. Obstacles in developing new treatment approaches to improve the outcome are: few patients to enroll in clinical trials, and the diversity of tumor biology between histologic subtypes. Pet dogs may offer an additional strategy to discover and test new therapeutic avenues. The number of dogs diagnosed with a STS each year in the United States is estimated to be around 27,000 to 95,000...

INTRODUCTION: Whereas hadron therapy of static targets is clinically established, treatment of moving organs remains a challenge. One strategy is to minimize motion of surrounding tissue mechanically and to mitigate residual motion with an appropriate irradiation technique. In this technical note, we present and characterize such an immobilization technique for a novel noncancerous application: the irradiation of small targets in hearts with scanned carbon ion beams in a porcine model for elimination of arrhythmias...

Soft tissue coverage of traumatic wounds of the upper extremity is often required to restore adequate function and form. An optimal coverage should be stable, durable, and able to withstand heavy demands of work, should allow free joint mobility, and should have an aesthetically acceptable appearance. Reconstructive options for coverage include autologous tissue and dermal skin substitutes. Multiple factors, including wound characteristics and complexity, general condition of the patient, and surgeon comfort and expertise, help in selection of the reconstructive technique...

INTRODUCTION: Ankle fractures represent the third most common fracture in elderly patients, after hip and wrist fractures. Distal fibula fractures in this population are closely related to osteoporosis, which renders commonly used methods of internal fixation technically demanding and prone to failure. Currently there is a tendency to fix osteoporotic metaphyseal and epiphyseal fractures with locking plates. However, published accounts about the use of this technology in osteoporotic distal fibula fractures are scarce...
