Min-Ji Tong, Guang-Heng Xiang, Zi-Li He, Hua-Zi Xu, Nai-Feng Tian
BACKGROUND: A "digit-like" bone is a rare developmental anomaly that is usually seen in the pelvic or thoracic regions. Such an anomaly in the cervical spine is extremely rare and few cases have been reported. We present a patient with an anomalous bone posterior to a cervical vertebra. The patient was admitted to our hospital with a gradually growing hard neck mass and esthetic complaints. Physical examination, radiographs, reconstructed computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging revealed a digit-like bone posterior to the cervical spine...

BACKGROUND: Several therapy options exist for male-to-female (MTF) transgenders desiring sex reassignment. Surgery includes numerous different procedures. Of those, vaginoplasty is predominant and aims at providing attractive esthetics and fully functional genitals. This study aimed to present the surgical results of our modified combined vaginoplasty technique in a consecutive patient cohort. METHODS: We included 40 MTF transgender patients who underwent a two-stage sex reassignment surgery (SRS) in an observational prospective study between September 2012 and January 2014...

BACKGROUND: After massive weight loss, patients typically presented with skin redundancy, which causes enormous esthetic, physical, medical and psychological problems. The growing number of patients with these sequelae triggered an increase in the search for body contouring procedures, which in turn produced an important development in the post-bariatric reconstructive surgery. METHODS: The author describes the principles of a personal approach in post-bariatric reconstructive surgery...

CONTEXT: Lymphedema consists of extracellular fluid retention caused by lymphatic obstruction. In chronic forms, fat and fibrous tissue accumulation is observed. Genital lymphedema is a rare condition in developed countries and may have primary or acquired etiology. It generally leads to urinary, sexual and social impairment. Clinical treatment usually has low effectiveness, and surgical resection is frequently indicated. CASE REPORT: We report a case of a male-to-female transgender patient who was referred for treatment of chronic genital lymphedema...

INTRODUCTION: Puberty-suppressing hormonal treatment may result in penoscrotal hypoplasia in transgender women, making standard penile inversion vaginoplasty not feasible. For these patients, intestinal vaginoplasty is a surgical alternative, but knowledge on patient-reported postoperative outcomes and quality of life is lacking. AIMS: To assess patient-reported functional and esthetic outcomes, quality of life, satisfaction, and sexual well-being after primary total laparoscopic intestinal vaginoplasty in transgender women...

INTRODUCTION: Intestinal vaginoplasty with a sigmoid colon or ileal segment is an established surgical technique for vaginal reconstruction. Little has been reported on long-term (functional) outcome and postoperative quality of life. AIMS: To assess the surgical and long-term psychological outcomes of secondary intestinal vaginoplasty performed from 1970 through 2000 in transgender women. METHODS: Transgender women who underwent intestinal vaginoplasty from 1970 through 2000 were identified from our hospital registry...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the applicability of dorsal perineal membrane (DPM) and urethrovaginal sphincter muscle (UVSM) site-specific defect reconstructions. The secondary objective was to establish how these reconstructions affect women's physical, emotional, and social well-being. STUDY DESIGN: An observational cohort study was conducted for 24 months on 3 patients. Clinical examinations with pelvic organ prolapse quantification panel, validated instruments of the Pain Numeric Scale, the Modified Body Image Scale (M-BIS), and the Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI) were applied preoperatively and 6 months postoperatively...

BACKGROUND: Operative fixation of displaced, mid-shaft clavicle fractures has become an increasingly common practice. With this emerging trend, data describing patient outcomes with longer follow-up are necessary. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of subjects treated with plate fixation for displaced mid-shaft clavicle fractures from 2003 to 2009 at a Level I trauma hospital. All subjects were greater than 12 months post-index surgery...

An appropriate bony situation is essential for dental implant placement and bony support of soft tissues (pink esthetic). Loss of teeth often results in complex horizontal and vertical alveolar ridge defects. They demand advanced bone augmentation techniques for reconstruction. We present the different techniques and materials used in complex bone augmentation. Clinical cases show the application of the methods in the clinical setting. We present current techniques and materials used in complex bone augmentations...

INTRODUCTION: Terminal ureteral stenosis can occur as a consequence of gynecological diseases or surgical treatment of simple or radical hysterectomy and pelvic endometriosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We evaluated 5 patients aged between 30 and 52 years, who underwent ureterocystoneostomy for ureteral stenosis due to several factors: 2 cases of pelvic endometriosis; 2 cases of surgery treatment of pelvic endometriosis, and 1 case of simple hysterectomy. Patients were placed supine in Trendelemburg position of about 30°...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Crohn's disease is a chronic relapsing inflammatory bowel disease requiring surgery in a large number of patients. This review describes new developments in surgical techniques for treating Crohn's disease. RESULTS: Single-incision laparoscopic surgery decreases abdominal wall trauma by reducing the number of abdominal incisions, possibly improving postoperative results in terms of pain and cosmetics. The resected specimen can be extracted through the single-incision site or the future stoma site...

CONTEXT: Radical cystectomy with orthotopic derivation is one of the most complex urological techniques, although laparoscopic surgery has made this procedure increasingly less invasive. OBJECTIVE: To provide an up-dated review of the single port approach to carry out radical surgery due to bladder cancer. EVIDENCE ACQUISITION: A comprehensive review of the literature was performed using Medline and Embase to discover the accumulated experience of the viability of carrying out laparoendoscopic radical cystectomy, pelvic lymphadenectomy and orthotopic neobladder using the laparoendoscopic single site surgery (LESS) approach...

Primary umbilical endometriosis represents a very rare localization of the disease and is represented by blue, papular, nodular or cystic lesions whose symptoms are related to ovarian cycle. We report the management of three women, free of surgical antecedents presenting with primary umbilical endometriosis. In each woman, abdominal laparoscopy revealed peritoneal pelvic endometriosis. The excision of umbilical lesions was performed with satisfactory esthetical outcomes. In our experience, umbilical endometriosis responsible for highly characteristic features appears playing the role of clinical marker for pelvic endometriosis...

Plastic Surgeons, by training, are familiar with constriction bands of the fingers and toes. The purpose of this report is to discuss the management of a rare constriction band syndrome that was almost circumferential at the level of the T12 dermatome, and is most appropriately considered a pelvic constriction band as it was below the umbilicus. The patient had constriction bands about the toes at birth, and was also noted to have a band circumferentially below the umbilicus, which did not cause any distress and was not treated...

There is increasing demand for surgical procedures which avoid visible scars while maintaining optimal functional and ideal cosmetic results, without compromising the safety or effectiveness of the procedure. Endoscopic techniques have been adapted to abdominal and pelvic surgery and increasingly employed over the past three decades. Although hampered by the absence of a natural cavity, endoscopic techniques have been adapted to surgery in the neck for the past 15 years, particularly for the thyroid gland. While earlier attempts at endoscopic thyroid surgery were performed through incisions in or near the midline of the neck, recent techniques have been developed to place the incisions and endoscopic ports extracervically, or at least away from the midline region of the neck, rendering the cosmetic result more acceptable...

The aim of the study was to find out and to analyse the text by Vitruvius which inspired the famous drawing by Leonardo da Vinci (circa 1490) kept in the Galleria dell'Accademia, in Venezia, Italy: the man inscribed in one circle and in one square. The book "de Architectura" by Vitruvius Marcus Pollio was printed several times since the Renaissance when both the roman architecture of antiquity and this text became very popular. From a French translation by Claude Perrault in 1864, it became easy to find a French translation with the original text in Latin (Paris, 2003, Les Belles Lettres, French text by Pierre Gros)...
