Malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors are rare soft tissue tumors accounting for 3% to 10% of all soft tissue tumors. They are strongly related to neurofibromatosis type 1, an autosomal dominant disease, and are characterized by aggressive biologic behavior, high local recurrence rates, and frequent metastases. Although the major nerves of the lower extremities are a common location of these tumors, scarce cases have been reported of malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors involving the interdigital nerves of the foot...

OBJECTIVE: Minimally invasive coronary artery bypass grafting (MICS CABG) via a small left thoracotomy is a novel technique for coronary revascularization that is increasingly used around the world. However, multivessel MICS CABG is difficult, and concerns about repeat revascularization (RR) have been raised. This longitudinal study describes the rates of RR among patients who have undergone MICS CABG and identifies targets for improvement. METHODS: A prospective observational study was performed on the 306 MICS CABG patients operated on by a single surgeon from 2005 to 2015...

We evaluated the effectiveness of the open membrane technique using a high-density polytetrafluoroethylene (dPTFE) membrane with freeze-dried bone allografts (FDBA) in damaged sockets for alveolar ridge preservation (ARP). This retrospective study included 26 sites from 20 patients who had received ARP for the placement of dental implants. ARP was conducted using dPTFE membrane with allografts on the day of extraction without primary closure. When the membrane was removed after 4 weeks, the newly-formed reddish tissue at the grafted site was checked (1st outcome, clinical evaluation)...

BACKGROUND: Mild hyperphosphatemia is a putative risk factor for cardiovascular disease [CVD], loss of kidney function, and mortality. Very limited data are available from sizable multicenter kidney transplant recipient (KTR) cohorts assessing the potential relationships between serum phosphorus levels and the development of CVD outcomes, transplant failure, or all-cause mortality. STUDY DESIGN: Cohort study. SETTING & PARTICIPANTS: The Folic Acid for Vascular Outcome Reduction in Transplantation (FAVORIT) Trial, a large, multicenter, multiethnic, controlled clinical trial that provided definitive evidence that high-dose vitamin B-based lowering of plasma homocysteine levels did not reduce CVD events, transplant failure, or total mortality in stable KTRs...

Shouwen Wang, Michele S Wang
OBJECTIVE: Arteriovenous fistulas and grafts may often be associated with localized complications related to aneurysms/pseudoaneurysms, buttonholes, or structural defects that require proper management to ensure continued access functionality for hemodialysis. Partial aneurysmectomy and repair (PAR) is a targeted surgical approach specifically designed for managing these complications. The basic concepts of PAR include resecting unhealthy or excessive tissue over an access, reconstructing the vascular access lumen using in situ vascular wall or tissue when possible, and closing overlying skin with healthy margins to promote reliable healing...

INTRODUCTION: Safety concerns have been one of the main reasons opposing a wider acceptance of minimal invasive extracorporeal circuits (MiECC). Following an extensive experience and a multitude of modifications, we have set out to employ a modular MiECC as a universal extracorporeal circuit. METHODS: A total of 129 cardiac surgical procedures were performed by a single surgeon in 2013. Excluding procedures done under circulatory arrest or with the potential need of such, the MiECC was utilized in almost 90% of surgeries...

PURPOSE: Ex vivo perfusion of marginal kidney grafts offers the chance to expand the donor pool, but there is no current clinical standard for the prolonged warm perfusion of renal grafts. This exploratory pilot study seeks to identify a stable ex vivo kidney perfusion model that can support low intravascular resistance and preserve histologic architecture in a porcine donation after cardiac death (DCD) model. METHODS: 15 kidneys were preserved in 1 of 3 settings: normothermic whole blood (NT-WB), normothermic Steen Solution™ (XVIVO Perfusion) with whole blood (NT-Steen/WB), or subnormothermic Steen Solution™ at 21°C (SNT-Steen)...

Corneal epithelial stem cells residing within the annular limbal crypts regulate adult tissue homeostasis. Autologous limbal grafts and tissue engineered corneal epithelial cell sheets have been widely used in the treatment of various ocular surface defects. In case of bilateral limbal defects, pluripotent stem cell (PSC) derived corneal epithelial cells are now being explored as an alternative to allogeneic limbal grafts. We report here an efficient method to generate complex three dimensional corneal organoids from human PSCs...

There is a great demand for transplant kidneys for the treatment of end-stage kidney disease patients. To expand the donor pool, organs from older and comorbid brain death donors, so-called expanded criteria donors (ECD), as well as donation after circulatory death (DCD) donors, are considered for transplantation. However, the quality of these organs may be inferior to standard donor organs. A major issue affecting graft function and survival is ischemia reperfusion injury (IRI), which particularly affects kidneys from deceased donors...

Tie-over bolster dressing after skin grafting can prolong operative time, and cause hematoma and seroma formation because of uneven pressure application. To describe the possibility of discontinuing the use of tie-over dressing, we carried out a retrospective comparative study of patients who underwent skin grafting at an institution between January 2009 and December 2014. We investigated and compared the take rate, healing period, wound infection rate and hematoma formation rate for the tie-over dressing group and the non-tie-over dressing group...

In this study, selective laser melted patient specific functional implants (PSFI) were utilised in combination with a fibula free flap, for mandible reconstruction. The shape and length of the PSFI, the shaping of fibula graft, its angulation and the length of the screws, were virtually planned before the surgery. Information, such as resection margin and screw lengths, were coded on the implant. 22 patients were reconstructed with PSFI and fibula transplantation. Data collected related to the size of the defect, pre- and postoperative intercondylar distance, ischemia time, time consumed to shape the fibula graft and complications...
