INTRODUCTION: The alveolar bone graft (ABG) is an important phase in the surgical treatment of cleft lip and palate (CLP). The purpose of alveolar bone grafting is to eliminate oronasal fistulas, restore the continuity of the maxilla and provide optimal periodontal support for spontaneous eruption of permanent canines adjacent to the cleft. The purpose of this systematic review was to determine the ideal timing of the ABG that would achieve these goals. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Databases consulted were MEDLINE, Embase et EBSCOhost, using keywords present in the MeSH: [cleft lip and palate] and [alveolar bone graft] and [tooth eruption]...

BACKGROUND: Since their introduction in 1993, anatomical implants have provided a more natural appearance in breast augmentation, and many surgeons advocate their use and promote the good aesthetic results. However, the risk of implant rotation makes some of them reluctant to use these devices. The rotation rate varies among authors. METHODS: The authors present a 6.5-year series of 531 patients who underwent primary breast augmentation with macrotextured anatomical implants in a Swedish facility performed by one consultant surgeon (P...

Bioreactors are essential enabling technologies for the translation of Advanced Therapies Medicinal Products (ATMPs) from the research field towards a successful clinical application. In order to speed up the translation and the spreading of novel Tissue Engineering (TE) products into the clinical routine, TE bioreactors should evolve from laboratory prototypes towards industrialized products. In this work, we thus challenged the industrialization process of a novel technological platform, based on an established research prototype of perfusion bioreactor, following a GMP-driven approach...

OBJECTIVES: Psychological outcomes of aesthetic surgical procedures like hair transplantation are mostly positive including decreased anxiety, depression and social phobia and increased general well-being, self-efficacy and self-esteem. However, some patients may suffer from post-surgical depression and post-surgical increased suicide rates have been reported for breast augmentation patients. Difficulty adapting to the new image, unfulfilled psychological needs expected to be met by the surgery, side effects of the surgery like tissue swelling or bruising, uncontrolled pain, presence of body dysmorphic disorder and previous history of mood disorder may be some of the risk factors for post-surgical depression...

BACKGROUND: Preoccupation with a perceived appearance flaw is the main feature of body dysmorphic disorder. The majority of these patients seek and often receive some sort of cosmetic procedure, although this condition is considered to be a contraindication. This study evaluates cosmetic professionals' recognition of body dysmorphic disorder and the way they act on this. METHOD: Members of Dutch professional associations for aesthetic plastic surgery, dermatology, and cosmetic medicine received an online survey by means of their association's digital mailing lists; the survey was completed by 173 respondents...

Since the introduction of silicone implants, several events have led to considerable uncertainty among the patients, public, and users. So far, however, the necessary steps to significantly improving patient safety have not been taken in any of these cases. Requiring stricter approvals for medical devices, improving monitoring by the regulatory authorities and the revision of the Medical Devices Directive are all initial steps in the right direction towards a change in policy, but are insufficient as an early warning system...

Background: In the patient-driven market of aesthetic surgery, an understanding of the factors that patients consider in their choice of surgeon can inform the individual plastic surgeon's marketing strategy. Previous studies have investigated patient gender preferences for physicians in other specialties, but none has investigated whether patients consider gender when choosing a plastic surgeon. Objectives: The purpose of this study is to determine the impact of a plastic surgeon's gender on patient choice...

BACKGROUND: Childhood caries (tooth decay) consists of a form of tooth decay that affects the milk teeth (also known as baby or primary teeth) of children. This may range from tooth decay in a single tooth to rampant caries affecting all the teeth in the mouth. Primary teeth in young children are vital to their development and every effort should be made to retain these teeth for as long as is possible. Dental fillings or restorations have been used as an intervention to repair these damaged teeth...

Congenital agenesis and acquired amputations of upper limb in children are a great traumatic experience in affected families. Patients, families and caregivers are then exposed to many functional and social difficulties. These states require accurate analysis of functional impairment, child's coping skills and therapeutic plan to implement for optimal social integration. These children and their families must be supported since early childhood by multidisciplinary teams. This can require psychological support, the use of an aesthetic and/or functional prosthesis, and occupational therapy...
