INTRODUCTION: Q-switched neodymium:YAG (Nd:YAG) lasers are reported to be gold standard for laser tattoo removal. In particular, the Q-switched Nd:YAG laser at 1064 nm is widely recognized for the removal of blue/black amateur tattoos. However, treatment modalities in Fitzpatrick Type VI skin carry a greater risk of complications including alterations in pigmentation compared to fairer skin (Fitzpatrick Type I-IV skin). Therefore, the aim of this case series was to describe with the use of the Q-Switched Nd:YAG laser, the removal of carbon-based amateur tattoos on patients with Fitzpatrick Type VI skin as an effective and safe method...

We studied the prevalence of HIV, syphilis, HBV and HCV infection and associated risk behaviors in the prison state system of Guanajuato, Mexico between September 2011 and February 2012. Blood samples were drawn from adult inmates in all State prisons agreeing to participate in this cross-sectional study. Data on risk behaviors was collected using self-administered questionnaires. Prevalence of HIV, syphilis, HBV and HCV infection was 0.6% (95%CI=0.2-1.1), 0.7% (95%CI=0.4-1.0), 0.4 (95%CI=0.04-0.74) and 4.8 (95%CI=3...

BACKGROUND: The rate of detection of small pulmonary nodules (SPNs) has increased. Thoracoscopic resection following image-guided localization had been a reliable alternative in their treatment. We present our experience with image-guided dye localization using robotic C-arm computed tomography (CT) followed by immediate video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) for SPNs in a hybrid operating room (OR). METHODS: From July 2015 to July 2016, 25 consecutive patients with SPNs smaller than 2 cm underwent robotic C-arm CT-guided blue dye tattooing followed by immediate VATS in a hybrid OR...

IMPORTANCE: Local and generalized allergic reactions following laser tattoo removal have been documented, but are rare. To our knowledge, this is the fourth documented case of widespread urticarial eruptions following laser tattoo removal treatment. Unlike previously documented cases, this patient's reaction was found to be associated with titanium dioxide within the tattoo and her symptoms were recalcitrant to medical therapy. OBSERVATIONS: A 46-year-old female experienced diffuse urticarial plaques, erythema, and pruritis following multiple laser tattoo removal treatments with an Nd:YAG laser...

BACKGROUND: Recent evidence shows that the majority of rectal cancers demonstrate occult tumor scatter after neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy that can extend for several centimeters under adjacent normal-appearing mucosa beside the residual mucosal abnormality or scar. OBJECTIVE: This systematic review aimed to determine all of the published selection criteria and technical descriptions for local excision to date with regard to this phenomenon. DATA SOURCES: PubMed, MEDLINE, and Embase were searched using the following key words: rectal cancer, local excision, radiotherapy, and neoadjuvant...

PURPOSE: Large setup variability has been observed for prone breast patients due to rotation error. To reduce this uncertainty, we propose a novel implementation of isocentric prone breast method on Elekta linac with couch move assistant (CMA) and on-line KV CBCT. METHODS: Daily CBCT is used to evaluate the prone breast patient positioning uncertainty of proposed isocentric technique against our routine manual clinical setup. Clinical setup involves a manual AP shift from the ipsilateral torso tattoos (2PT) to the treatment iso directly underneath and SSD and flash check...

PURPOSE: To show the first in-human Megavoltage (MV)-Topogram acquisition for the evaluation of the potential for MV-Topogram-based alignment as an alternative to MVCT for reducing dose and imaging time. METHODS: A lung cancer patient was enrolled in an ongoing IRB-approved clinical trial at our institute. The patient was set up using the clinical protocol employing positioning lasers. 3.2mm diameter tungsten spheres were placed on the patient's skin at their alignment tattoos to check surface-based marker concordance between topograms and MVCT...

Historically, tattoos have been used for therapeutic practices and as signs of social status in primitive cultures. In this study, we sought to develop a greater understanding of the reasons individuals choose to get tattoos. Three hundred sixty-three patients with at least 1 tattoo from among our clinic patients volunteered to complete an 18-question, multiple-choice survey. Questions focused on level of education, family background, and reason for getting a tattoo, among other factors.

The aim of this study was to analyze eyebrow shapes as represented in the British edition of "Vogue" over the last century (1916-2015). Photographs containing distinguishable eyebrows were selected from a book entitled "Vogue 100: A Century of Style." A total of 120 frontal pictures in which the eye and eyebrows were identifiable were included and analyzed. The relative width of the eyebrow (REW), as well as relative medial (RMH), midpupillary (RPH), and lateral (RLH) eyebrow height were measured in reference to the length of the palpebral fissure...

BACKGROUND: Bilateral acute uveitis can cause significant morbidity, and a complete workup is often warranted. This report illustrates a case of sarcoid uveitis definitively diagnosed by skin biopsy in a patient with red tattoo ink. CASE REPORT: A 40-year-old African American male presented with bilateral photophobia and intraocular pressures of 26 mmHg in both eyes, 1+ grade cell and flare in both eyes, and granulomatous (mutton fat) keratic precipitates in both eyes...

Current genetically-engineered mouse melanoma models are often based on Tyr::CreER(T2)-controlled MAPK pathway activation by the BRAF(V600E) mutation and PI3K pathway activation by loss of PTEN. The major drawback of these models is the occurrence of spontaneous tumors caused by leakiness of the Tyr::CreER(T2) system, hampering long-term experiments. To address this problem, we investigated several approaches to optimally provide local delivery of Cre recombinase, including injection of lentiviral particles, DNA tattoo administration and particle-mediated gene transfer, to induce melanomas in Pten(LoxP/LoxP);Braf(CA/+) mice lacking the Tyr::CreER(T2) allele...

BACKGROUND: The assessment of individual exposure to toxicants in industrially contaminated areas is difficult when multiple productions are active close to residential areas. Two thermoelectric power plants and a large harbor have been operating since the '60s in the area of Civitavecchia (North of Rome). METHODS: The ABC (Ambiente e Biomonitoraggio nell'area di Civitavecchia, Environment and Biomonitoring in Civitavecchia) program involved, in the period 2013-2014, residents in Civitavecchia and in the nearby municipalities (Santa Marinella, Allumiere, Tolfa and Tarquinia)...

Tattooing has been utilized by the medical community for precisely demarcating anatomic landmarks. This practice is especially important for identifying biopsy sites of nonmelanoma skin cancer (NMSC) due to the long interval (i.e., up to 3 months) between the initial diagnostic biopsy and surgical treatment. Commercially available tattoo pigments possess several issues, which include causing poor cosmesis, being mistaken for a melanocytic lesion, requiring additional removal procedures when no longer desired, and potentially inducing inflammatory responses...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Tattooing is a global trend. Clinical knowledge of complications is based on case reports collected over a century. Larger cohorts reflecting complications associated with contemporary trends are lacking. METHODS: The study was a retrospective review of a consecutive cohort of patients with tattoo complications diagnosed in the "Tattoo Clinic" of Bispebjerg University Hospital in Copenhagen, Denmark, from 2008 to 2015, based on patient history and systematic clinical examination...
