<p>Surgical defects located within 5 mm of the nasal alar margin are at risk for alar elevation or collapse of the external nasal valve during wound healing. To reduce the chance of such complications, free cartilage grafts may be used as part of the reconstruction. However, if the defect is large enough so that the free cartilage graft does not fill most of the defect, wound contraction can still lead to alar displacement. In these situations, skin may need to be recruited from either the forehead or cheek in the form of an interpolation flap to cover both the free cartilage graft and the residual cutaneous defect...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to determine the treatment outcome of the use of a porcine monolayer collagen matrix (mCM) to increase soft-tissue volume as a part of implant site development. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Implants were placed in single sites in 27 patients. In the test group, mCM was used for soft-tissue augmentation. No graft was placed in the control group. Soft-tissue thickness (STTh) was measured at the time of surgery (T0) and 6 months postoperatively (T1) at two sites (STTh 1, 1 mm below the gingival margin; STTh 2, 3 mm below the mucogingival margin)...

OBJECTIVE The accessory nerve is frequently repaired or used for nerve transfer. The length of accessory nerve available is often insufficient or marginal (under tension) for allowing direct coaptation during nerve repair or nerve transfer (neurotization), necessitating an interpositional graft. An attractive maneuver would facilitate lengthening of the accessory nerve for direct coaptation. The aim of the present study was to identify an anatomical method for such lengthening. METHODS In 20 adult cadavers, the C-2 or C-3 connections to the accessory nerve were identified medial to the sternocleidomastoid (SCM) muscle and the anatomy of the accessory nerve/cervical nerve fibers within the SCM was documented...

Oral lichen planus (OLP) is an immune-mediated mucocutaneous disease associated with an increased risk in oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). Nearly all cases of malignant transformation have been reported in patients >40 years old. We report the case of a 37-year-old woman with a 5-year history of erosive OLP who presented with malignant transformation to OSCC. Delineating the margins of the disease was impossible at presentation given her OLP, and she was initially treated with concurrent chemoradiation therapy...

BACKGROUND: The association of anaemia with aortic stenosis (AS) has been recognised for over 50 years but although there have been a number of sporadic reports there are little data on the prevalence of this syndrome. AIMS: We sought to compare the prevalence of anaemia in adults with AS with that of controls who had undergone coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). METHODS: We conducted a retrospective cohort study comparing pre-procedural levels of haemoglobin in 1537 adults who underwent aortic valve replacement (AVR) for AS with 8025 contemporaneous patients who had CABG...

BACKGROUND: Extracorporeal photopheresis (ECP) is an established treatment for graft-versus-host disease (GVHD). Various haematocrit thresholds have been used to trigger red blood cells transfusion prior to ECP. Moderate-to-severe GVHD is frequently complicated by anaemia; the safety and collection efficiency with a lower haematocrit for ECP is unknown. METHODS: We prospectively enrolled 26 consecutive adult GVHD patients with haematocrits between 25% and 28·9% who received ECP on the CELLEX system...

Split-liver transplantation (LT) allows transplantation of two recipients from one deceased donor, thereby increasing pool of grafts. However, split LT may be hampered by technical problems, and split grafts are still considered suboptimal organs in some centres. We analysed the outcomes in split- and whole-liver recipients in a combined adult-to-paediatric transplantation programme. Records of paediatric and adult patients having undergone LT from 1999 to 2013 were analysed retrospectively. All splits were performed in situ...

Urinary tract infection is the most common complication after kidney transplant that can cause graft loss. An early diagnosis of urinary infections decreases morbidity and mortality. Besides clinical and laboratory examinations, ultrasonography is considered as the primary imaging modality for the diagnosis of urinary tract infections. Here, we report a 53-year-old woman who presented with fever and pain at surgical site. Ultrasonography examination showed multiple, ill-defined or irregularly margined hypoechoic areas within the cortex...

A significant segment of hematopoietic stem cell transplantations are performed with ABO-mismatched donors. The impact of ABO-mismatch on outcome following transplantation remains controversial and there is no published data regarding the impact of ABO-mismatch in acute myeloid leukemia patients receiving haploidentical transplantation. Using the EBMT acute leukemia working group registry we identified 837 patients who underwent haploidentical transplantation. Comparative analysis was performed between patients receiving ABO-matched versus ABO-mismatched for common clinical outcome variables...

OBJECTIVE: Stent graft-induced new entry (SINE) has been increasingly observed after thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) for Stanford type B aortic dissection. SINE is often life threatening, and reintervention is required. This study investigated risk factors for SINE after TEVAR. METHODS: From July 2001 to June 2013, we retrospectively analyzed data from 79 patients who underwent TEVAR for Stanford type B aortic dissection. TEVAR was performed in 17 patients ≤2 weeks (acute) after the diagnosis of aortic dissection and in the remaining 62 patients >2 weeks (chronic) after diagnosis...

MAIN PROBLEM: To increase the donor pool, the strategy of transplantation from "marginal" donors was developed though patients' preferences about these donors were insufficiently known. METHODS: The preferences of patients registered on the waiting list or already transplanted in eight transplant teams covering four main organs (i.e, kidney, liver, heart and lung) were evaluated using the discrete choice experiment method. In each center during two days, patients were interviewed on four scenarios...

BACKGROUND: The ongoing shortage of donor livers for transplantation and the increased use of marginal livers necessitate the development of accurate pretransplant tests of viability. Considering the importance energy status during transplantation, we aimed to correlate peritransplant energy cofactors to posttransplant outcome and subsequently model this in an ex vivo setting. METHODS: Sequential biopsies were taken from 19 donor livers postpreservation, as well as 30 min after portal venous (PVR) and hepatic arterial reperfusion (HAR) and analyzed by LC-MS for energetic cofactors (ATP/ADP/AMP, NADH/NAD, NADPH/NADP, FAD, GSSG/GSH)...

PurposeSuspicious neoplastic conjunctival lesions often require wide excision with tumour-free margins, leaving significant conjunctival defects requiring reconstruction. In this study we report the results of using fresh frozen amniotic membrane grafts (AMG) after wide excision of potentially malignant lesions.MethodsRetrospective review of 53 patients; between January 2011 and April 2014. Conjunctival lesions were excised with a non-touch technique (2 mm margin) and sent for histopathological analysis. The surgical margins were treated with cryotherapy and a fresh frozen AMG was used to cover the defect...

Ectodermal dysplasia (ED) is an inherited disorder characterized by abnormality of ectodermally derived structures. A recurrent oral finding is oligodontia, which in turn leads to a severely hypotrophic alveolar process with typical knife-edge morphology and adverse ridge contours. This unfavorable anatomy can seriously hamper proper implant placement. Fresh-frozen bone (FFB) allografts recently have been proposed to augment the residual bone volume for implant placement purposes; however, scientific evidence concerning the use of FFB to treat ED patients is absent...
