Abstract The usefulness of monozygotic (MZ) twins for studying the efficacy of different face lift techniques is described. The data suggest that no particular procedure out of four under consideration is superior to any other. Next, reviews of recent twin studies of congenital anomalies, personality traits and coital orgasmic infrequency, and physical activity participation are presented. Finally, timely topics of public interest are also described. They include a rare birth consequence of artificial reproductive technology, an update on state legislation regarding parents' rights to decide the classroom placement of their young twins, and medical malpractice lawsuits involving premature twins...

Two kinds of composition based on commercial liquid poly(dimethylsiloxane) and laboratory-made poly(2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) (PHEMA) microspheres of different size fractions (30-40 or 125-180 microm) were prepared. Tissue reaction on injection of the compositions, optimum microsphere size and morphology were investigated in the experiments on rats. The microspheres induced foreign body reaction characterized by an increased content of fibroblasts and mild infiltration of injection field by inflammatory cells...

BACKGROUND: The improvement in and rejuvenation of facial features through the array of facioplasty techniques currently available remains intimately linked with the risk of complications associated with the cosmetic surgery procedure. The need for novel approaches to cosmetic facial surgery that achieve the desired end result for the patient while minimizing inherent risks and complications for the surgeon is acute. OBJECTIVE: To determine the efficacy of the Aptos subdermal suspension thread technique as an alternative to current facioplasty options through a studied series of this procedure...

The authors began to use 1-desamino-8-D-arginine vasopressin (DDAVP) Desmopressin Acetate routinely in their facelift patients who had a relatively high risk of bleeding, either from Von Willebrand factor deficiency, platelet dysfunction, aspirin intake, or ease of ecchymosis. Based on their observations that these patients had enhanced clotting and recovery times, they decided to undertake a prospective evaluation of the effects of Desmopressin Acetate when administered as a preoperative intravenous supplement during cosmetic facioplasty...
