Kaihua Tian, Ronghua Yang, Bin Han
Diego Gonzalez-Rivas and his colleagues performed the first case for pulmonary major resection by the uniportal approach in 2010. In the following years, more and more expert surgeons developed the uniportal approach and even applied it to very complex cases. Many centers have showed that uniportal video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) lobectomy is a safe and feasible technique. The patient presented here is a complex case: The lingular segmental artery was invaded seriously by the tumor and it was difficult to divide it freely, and the pulmonary artery plasty was needed...

Mitral valve plasty (MVP) is preferred over mitral valve replacement (MVR) for mitral regurgitation in humans because of its favorable effect on quality of life. In small dogs, it is difficult to repair multiple lesions in both leaflets using MVP. Herein, we report a case of severe mitral regurgitation caused by multiple severe lesions in the posterior leaflet (PL) in a mixed Chihuahua. Initially, we had planned MVR with an artificial valve. However, MVP combined with artificial chordal reconstruction of both leaflets, semicircular suture annuloplasty, and valvuloplasty using a newly devised direct scallop suture for the PL was attempted in this dog...

REVIEW
Panagiotis Ntagiopoulos, David Dejour
Recent studies have renewed interest in the structures of the anterolateral aspect of the knee. Concomitant damage to these structures in the setting of anterior cruciate ligament rupture has led to various surgical techniques to address these combined injuries. This article is a description of the rationale and the indications for lateral extra-articular tenodesis as well as surgical technique.

Case: Self-penile amputation, especially at the glans, has rarely been reported. Most reported cases of self-amputation were performed at the proximal or peripubic area, and there only one case of self-amputation at the glans has been reported in Japan. We report two cases of self-penile amputation at the glans. Case 1: A 31-year-old man with no psychiatric disease completely amputated his penis at the glans. He underwent a stump plasty under spinal anesthesia. Case 2: A 46-year-old man with schizophrenia amputated his penis at the glans...

Limb sparing surgery in growing young patients with malignant tumors is difficult as invasion of the physis by the tumor or surgical resection through the metaphysis may cause significant limb discrepancy following surgery. At present, hinged tumor prosthesis or biological reconstructions are the main methods following tumor resection in these patients. The aim of the present study was to assess different procedures for the treatment of osteosarcoma around knee joints in immature patients. A retrospective study of 56 patients (<15 years old, open physis) who had been treated for osteosarcoma around the knee joint between January 2007 and December 2015 was performed...

BACKGROUND: Epicanthoplasty combined with double-eyelid blepharoplasty is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in Asians. However, the postoperative medial canthal scar is a concerned issue. Here the authors adopted some modifications of Z-epicanthoplasty to minimize the canthal scar. METHODS: Modifications of Z-epicanthoplasty were mainly in three aspects. First, supratarsal creases were created before epicanthoplasty to prevent the impact of tension variation on epicanthal incisions, caused by elevating and tightening of the upper eyelid skin...

BACKGROUND: Localized scleroderma is characterized by a thickening of the skin from excessive collagen deposits. It is not a fatal disease, but quality of life can be adversely affected due to changes in skin appearance, joint contractures, and, rarely, serious deformities of the face and extremities. We present six cases of localized scleroderma in face from our surgical practice. METHODS: We reviewed six localized scleroderma cases that were initially treated with medication and then received follow-up surgery between April 2003 and February 2015...

BACKGROUND: The reported range of seroma formation in the literature after TEP repair is between 0.5 and 12.2% and for TAPP between 3.0 and 8.0%. Significant clinical factors associated with seroma formation include old age, a large hernia defect, an extension of the hernia sac into the scrotum, as well as the presence of a residual indirect sac. Seroma formation is a frequent complication of laparoendoscopic mesh repair of moderate to large-size direct (medial) inguinal hernia defects...

Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation has been recently indicated as an ex utero intrapartum treatment procedure for placental support in patients with a large thoracic mass. In our case, a foetus with truncus arteriosus communis and hydrops with ventricular failure due to severe truncal valve stenosis was delivered under ex utero intrapartum treatment-to-extracorporeal membrane oxygenation at 34 weeks of gestation. The neonate underwent truncal valve plasty. He could be weaned off extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, but he died because of the infection on postnatal Day 24...

E Dilaver, S Uckan
The aim of this study was to assess the effect of isolated V-Y plasty on lip lengthening and the treatment of gummy smile. An isolated V-Y plasty was performed on 14 patients with a gummy smile. In each case, measurements of upper lip length and gingival display were recorded from posed-smile photographs taken preoperatively and at 1, 3, and 6 months postoperatively. Gingival display decreased significantly and lip length increased significantly over all intervals investigated. Applying this technique after Le Fort I surgery may be beneficial; however, as with other injection or surgical lip lengthening methods, its stand-alone application should be questioned...

INTRODUCTION: Dome division or vertical dome division (VDD) is a tip plasty technique that is effective when applied appropriately to suitable patients. For 15 years, we have used VDD and made modifications as needed. In classical VDD, the dome area is cut and left to heal, but experience shows that additional components are needed to complement dome division, such as sutures or grafts. In this study, we retrospectively analysed our rhinoplasty patients in whom we used vertical alar resection (VAR) to assess the advantages and disadvantages of this technique...
