OBJECTIVE: Patient specific implants have been used for the reconstruction of large skull bone defects. Several therapeutic effects have been suggested in current literature but were never objectified. The aim of the current study was to evaluate the change in quality of life, pain, aesthetics, and the surgical and medical outcomes after reconstruction of large skull bone defects with titanium or polyetheretherketone (PEEK) implants. METHODS: We retrospectively evaluated 29 consecutive patients receiving a patient specific skull implant between November 2004 and December 2015...

Major progress has been made in breast cancer reconstruction surgery. The standard technique for totally implanted vascular access device (TIVAD) implantation generally requires an incision for port insertion on the anterior part of the thorax that leaves a scar in the middle of the neckline in patients who have undergone mastectomy with complex breast reconstruction. The aim of this technical note is to report our revised surgical technique for TIVAD placement. In patients with breast cancer, we take a lateralized approach, performing an oblique incision on the lowest part of the deltopectoral groove...

BACKGROUND: Extra full projection implants are used in a select group of aesthetic breast surgery patients. Their use is selective enough that they have not been included in long term manufacturer studies and the indications for their use have attracted much debate. Only a handful of studies have reported the outcomes from implantation of these devices. OBJECTIVES: We review our experience of using extra full projection anatomically shaped macrotextured silicone gel implants discussing our rationale, indications, and results...

Background. Autologous dermal sling with wise pattern skin reducing mastectomy allows one-stage implant reconstruction in women with large and ptotic breasts needing mastectomy for cancer or risk reduction. However, this technique is not suitable for women who lack ptosis and also carries risk of T-junction breakdown. Method. We have performed one-stage nipple sparing mastectomies with implant reconstruction in 5 women (8 breasts) by modifying the autologous dermal sling approach. All these women had small to moderate breasts with no ptosis or pseudoptosis...

BACKGROUND: Craniomaxillofacial reconstruction with patient-specific, customized craniofacial implants (CCIs) is ideal for skeletal defects involving areas of aesthetic concern-the non-weight-bearing facial skeleton, temporal skull, and/or frontal-forehead region. Results to date are superior to a variety of "off-the-shelf" materials, but require a protocol computed tomography scan and preexisting defect for computer-assisted design/computer-assisted manufacturing of the CCI. The authors developed a craniomaxillofacial surgical assistance workstation to address these challenges and intraoperatively guide CCI modification for an unknown defect size/shape...

Gunshot injuries to the face can have serious aesthetic, functional, and psychological consequences. The incapacitating nature of maxillofacial defects makes reconstruction of the maxilla and mandible challenging, owing to multiple surgeries and extensive rehabilitation phase. Outcome of prosthodontic treatment is one of the important parameters by which a patient measures the success of rehabilitation. A 5-year follow-up of comprehensive surgical and prosthodontic reconstruction of a gunshot injury using dental implants is described...

BACKGROUND: The surgical case of a dropped intraocular lens inside the vitreous cavity constitutes a real challenge for the operating surgeon. Herein, we describe a case series where an alternative optical rehabilitation technique for late intraocular lens-bag complex dislocation has been used. METHODS: A modern vitrectomy device was used to remove the capsule with the dropped intraocular lens using sutureless 25-gauge pars plana vitrectomy. To ensure a better aesthetic result, with faster patient recovery and a reduced number of operations, the whole procedure was performed during the same operating session; an iris-claw intraocular lens for aphakia was selected for implantation...

PURPOSE: Implant supported full-arch immediate prosthesis (also called the immediate Brånemark protocol) revolutionized dental clinical practice due to the aesthetic/functional benefits it offers to the patient. This work presents a simplified and efficient technique for implant supported full-arch immediate prosthesis fabrication. METHODS: After diagnosing the necessity of the protocol, the implants were installed with a minimum torque of 35Ncm. For implant impression, the use of previously prepared castable cylinders (dispensing with impression posts), and a U-shaped acrylic (Mello technique) generated a cast without distortion...

BACKGROUND: Breast reconstruction involves the use of autologous tissues or implants. Occasionally, microsurgical reconstruction is not an option because of insufficient donor tissues. Fat grafting has become increasingly popular in breast surgery. The challenge with this technique is how to reconstruct a stable and living "scaffold" that resembles a breast. METHODS: Breast reconstruction (n = 7) was performed using intratissular expansion with serial deflation-lipofilling sessions...
