We describe a technique of small-incision lenticule extraction (SMILE)-assisted sutureless corneal resurfacing with interface tattooing for superficial limbal dermoids. After excision at a plane minimally below surrounding normal cornea and sclera, a corneal tattoo powder is carefully applied within an inked circular outline of the intended corneal margin. Circularity and cosmesis are assessed in natural light with the microscope light off. Fibrin glue-assisted corneal resurfacing is performed with the lenticule...

Segmentectomy is one of the treatment of choice for small-sized non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Although simple segmentectomy is feasible even if under thoracoscopy, complicated segmentectomy which contains more than two segmental plane divisions is difficult especially thoracoscopic surgery. We here present the case of totally thoracoscopic segmentectomy between upper division and lingular segment. In the first case, the 64-year-old female patient admitted for further examination and treatment of left lung ground glass nodule...

This study evaluated a tendon substitute model. Tenocytes were isolated from pig Achilles tendon, seeded onto scaffolds (Opocrin 2%, Typeone 3% and Symatese 2%) and studied by histology, immunofluorescence for collagen type 1 and 3 and biochemical analysis to assess cellularity. The permeability of these compounds was evaluated in the presence or absence of fibrin glue. Opocrin 2% was the best choice for cellular distribution within the scaffolds, which were then cultured for T0, T4, T7 and T10 days. Fibrin glue has been strongly supportive for the survival of cells with a significant increase in DNA content at T10 (P<0...

The bursting strength is a key parameter to assess hemostatic ability of tissue sealants. It is associated to mechanical property of the materials, the binding strength of the materials to the tissues as well as the applied conditions of the materials, such as temperature and wound size. Few works have systematically investigated the relationship of the hemostatic ability of hydrogels with the factors listed above. This study introduced a method to systematically investigate the effect of the thickness, covered area and components of hydrogels, and the applied conditions on the bursting strength of hydrogels...

Boerhaave syndrome, the spontaneous perforation of the esophagus, is an emergency, life-threatening condition. Current endoscopic treatment options include clipping and stenting, but the use of polyglycolic acid (PGA) sheets for treating the condition has not been reported. In recent years, PGA sheets have been used after endoscopic submucosal dissection to prevent perforations and stricture formation in patients treated for early-stage carcinoma. We report the cases of two patients with Boerhaave syndrome who were successfully treated using PGA sheets...

We report a case of free flap deterioration which may have been induced by pressure gradient resulting from cranial defect overlying a ventriculoperitoneal shunt (VP shunt). The patient, male and aged 78, had a VP shunt operation for progressive hydrocephalus. Afterwards, the scalp skin flap surrounding the VP shunt collapsed and showed signs of necrosis, exposing part of the shunt catheter. After covering the defect with a radial forearm free flap, the free flap site showed signs of gradual sinking while the vascularity of the flap remained unimpaired...
