Split-thickness skin grafting (STSG) is the current gold standard for treatment of extensive burn and traumatic skin injuries. However, STSG is limited by donor-site morbidity and availability, and often leads to scarring and wound contracture. Furthermore, these thin grafts lack dermal elements such as nerves and adnexa which are important in recapitulating normal skin function. Methods of fractional skin replacement either as minced STSGs or microscopic skin tissue columns (MSTCs) have been proposed, though these techniques have not been fully-characterized and lack evidence of regenerated adnexal structures...

INTRODUCTION: Lateral tenodesis (LT) is performed to limit the risk of iterative tear following anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction in at-risk patients. By adding an extra procedure to isolated ACL graft, LT reconstruction increases operating time and may complicate postoperative course. The objective of the present study was to evaluate the rate of early complications. The study hypothesis was that associating ALL reconstruction to ACL reconstruction does not increase the complications rate found with isolated ACL reconstruction...

BACKGROUND: Capsular contracture has been the most common complication of cosmetic breast augmentation. The effect of incision pattern on capsular contracture is still unclear. This meta-analysis demonstrates current evidence with regard to the comparison of capsular contracture rate between periareolar and other two (transaxillary and inframammary) incisions. METHODS: PubMed, EMBASE, and Cochrane databases were searched up to January 2017. The results of selected studies were meta-analyzed to obtain a pooled odds ratio of the effect of periareolar versus other two incision patterns (transaxillary or inframammary incision) of breast augmentation on capsular contracture rates...

Functional limb length discrepancy (LLD) in adolescents can result from soft tissue contracture following long-standing hip disease. We present a case of a 13-year-old girl with difficulty in ambulation due to right hip pain and LLD. Radiographs revealed severe arthritis of right hip with signs of avascular necrosis of the femoral head. The patient had developed reactive scoliosis of lumbar spine along with pelvic obliquity. After failing conservative management, total hip arthroplasty (THA) without attempting to equalize LLD was performed...

A 16-year-old girl who had Morquio syndrome presented with severe bilateral hip pain and limited mobility because of bilateral hip osteoarthritis and fixed flexion deformities. She was wheelchair bound for the previous 6 months. Cervical spine flexion-extension views showed mild subluxation (<3 mm), and there was thoracolumbar spine kyphosis. Magnetic resonance imaging of the cervical and thoracolumbar spine showed hypoplasia of the odontoid and vertebral bodies, but no spinal cord compression. Bilateral cemented total hip arthroplasty was performed through a posterior approach under general anesthesia with fiberoptic intubation...

Testing for malignant hyperthermia in New Zealand involves two tests-in vitro contracture testing of excised lateral quadriceps muscle and DNA analysis. In vitro contracture testing is regarded as the gold standard in malignant hyperthermia diagnosis but several publications have questioned the reliability of a normal result. Analysis of 479 anaesthetic records in 280 patients or their descendants throughout New Zealand who had tested negative for malignant hyperthermia, demonstrated there was no evidence of malignant hyperthermia episodes in this group who had been administered anaesthetic triggering agents...

INTRODUCTION: The value proposition of surgery at freestanding ambulatory surgery centers (FSASCs) in terms of efficiency, safety, and patient satisfaction is well established and has led to increased FSASC utilization. However, there are comorbid conditions that disqualify certain patients from surgery at FSASCs. Understanding the percentage of patients whose comorbid conditions exclude them from FSASCs is important for the proper planning and utilization of operating room assets. We aim to understand the percentage of excluded patients, and we predict that certain procedures have higher rates of disqualification due to the types of patients who undergo them...

Caudal Regression Syndrome (CRS) is a rare disorder which consists of abnormalities in the lumbosacral spine, rectum, urinary system and lower limbs. These abnormalities also include orthopaedic deformities, such as hip dislocation, knee-flexion contracture with popliteal webbing and talipes equinovarus. Because of the rarity of this condition, few medical personnel are aware of it. Here, we present a case of CRS in a 15-year-old girl with pressure ulcers on the lateral malleolus and plantar surface of the foot, which had come into contact with the wheelchair footrest...

Individuals with Dupuytren disease (DD) are commonly seen by physicians and surgeons across multiple specialties. It is an increasingly common and disabling fibroproliferative disorder of the palmar fascia, which leads to flexion contractures of the digits, and is associated with other tissue-specific fibroses. DD affects between 5% and 25% of people of European descent and is the most common inherited disease of connective tissue. We undertook the largest GWAS to date in individuals with a surgically validated diagnosis of DD from the UK, with replication in British, Dutch, and German individuals...

Mutations in GLE1 underlie Lethal Congenital Contracture syndrome (LCCS) and Lethal Arthrogryposis with Anterior Horn Cell Disease (LAAHD). Both LCCS and LAAHD are characterized by reduced fetal movements, congenital contractures, and a severe form of motor neuron disease that results in fetal death or death in the perinatal period, respectively. We identified bi-allelic mutations in GLE1 in two unrelated individuals with motor delays, feeding difficulties, and respiratory insufficiency who survived beyond the perinatal period...
