Britt Colebunders, Koenraad Van Landuyt
INTRODUCTION: Patients requesting body-contouring surgery after massive weight loss often present with abdominal and lumbar skin excess as well as gluteal ptosis and loss of gluteal projection. In order to restore gluteal projection a circular abdominoplasty in combination with an autologous gluteal augmentation (all-in-one technique) can be performed. OBJECTIVE: To compare outcomes for patients who underwent a circular abdominoplasty with or without autologous gluteal augmentation...

BACKGROUND: Massive localized lymphedema (MLL) is an area of skin and subcutaneous overgrowth associated with obesity. The purpose of this project was to determine whether MLL results from obesity-induced lymphedema (OIL), and to characterize the prevalence and risk factors for the condition. STUDY DESIGN: Patients evaluated in our Lymphedema Program between 2009 and 2016 were reviewed for obese individuals [body mass index (BMI) > 30 kg/m(2)] who had lower extremity lymphatic function evaluated by lymphoscintigraphy...

The Rhipicephalus microplus tick is a notorious blood-feeding ectoparasite of livestock, especially cattle, responsible for massive losses in animal production. It is the main vector for transmission of pathogenic bacteria and parasites, including Babesia bovis, an intraerythrocytic apicomplexan protozoan parasite responsible for bovine Babesiosis. This study describes the development and testing of a live B. bovis vaccine expressing the protective tick antigen glutathione-S-transferase from Haemaphysalis longicornis (HlGST)...

BACKGROUND: Placenta previa, one of the most severe obstetric complications, carries an increased risk of intraoperative massive hemorrhage. Several risk factors for intraoperative hemorrhage have been identified to date. However, the correlation between birth weight and intraoperative hemorrhage has not been investigated. Here we estimate the correlation between birth weight and the occurrence of intraoperative massive hemorrhage in placenta previa. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We included all 256 singleton pregnancies delivered via cesarean section at our hospital because of placenta previa between 2003 and 2015...

BACKGROUND: Abdominoplasty techniques using a more superficial plane of dissection with Scarpa fascia preservation have been shown to improve recovery and reduce complications in nonbariatric patients. Patients who have experienced massive weight loss frequently need body contour procedures and represent a high-risk group. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effect of this technique in patients with massive weight loss after bariatric surgery. SETTING: University hospital, Portugal...

A 40-year-old man complaining of progressive body weight loss was diagnosed to have acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. Within 2 weeks after the initiation of combination antiretroviral therapy, he developed fever, massive cervical lymphadenopathy and a protruding subcutaneous abscess. A lymph node biopsy and abscess drainage revealed non-caseous granuloma and mycobacterium. The mycobacterium belonged to Runyon II group, but it showed no matches to any previously reported species. According to sequence analyses, the strain was identified as Mycobacterium shigaense...

BACKGROUND: Burn injuries are common in poverty-stricken countries. The majority of patients with large and complex burns are referred to burn centres. Of the children who qualify for admission, according to burn admission criteria, about half require some kind of surgical procedure to obtain skin cover. These range from massive full-thickness fire burns to skin grafts for small, residual unhealed wounds. Burn anaesthetic procedures are of the most difficult to perform and are known for high complication rates...

Zenker's diverticulum is a form of esophageal and pharyngeal obstruction located at the Killian-Laimer triangle. It is relatively common in elderly man (seventh or eighth decade of life), and its pathophysiology is not completely understood, albeit theories regarding dysfunction of the upper esophageal sphincter were reported. The main symptoms are dysphagia and odynophagia, but it can complicate to aspiration and perforation of the pharyngeal pouch; also, it can be asymptomatic. Diagnosis is provided through a barium esophagogram...

(Aim) Sensorineural hearing loss is correlated to massive neurological or psychiatric disease. (Materials) T1-weighted volumetric images were acquired from fourteen subjects with right-sided hearing loss (RHL), fifteen subjects with left-sided hearing loss (LHL), and 20 healthy controls (HC). (Method) We treat this a three-class classification problem: HC, LHL, and RHL. Stationary wavelet entropy was employed to extract global features from magnetic resonance images of each subject. Those stationary wavelet entropy features are used as input to a single-hidden layer feedforward neural-network classifier...

BACKGROUND: Monsplasty treats massive weight loss (MWL) patients with redundant tissues in the mons region. Monsplasty, however, is not a routine component of abdominal contouring. OBJECTIVES: The goal of this study was to evaluate the changes in urinary and sexual functioning in patients who undergo abdominal contouring with monsplasty vs non-operated controls. METHODS: A prospective study was performed of patients who underwent abdominal contouring + monsplasty or no surgery...

BACKGROUND: After considerable weight loss, the breast suffers significant deformation. The ptotic breast is characterized by a lack of superior pole, tissue excess in the inferior pole, down-migration of nipple-areola complex (NAC) with redundancy to skin tissue. The authors describe a mastopexy technique based on a modulated and progressive reshaping, back rotation, and suspension of mammary gland parenchyma without parenchymal incisions. METHODS: Forty-five patients with bilateral moderate or severe breast ptosis underwent mastopexy from January 2011 to January 2014 with complete detachment of breast from the pectoralis major muscle and the plication line of parenchyma without any parenchymal incision...

INTRODUCTION: National guidelines for commissioning of body contouring surgery (BCS) following massive weight loss (MWL) in England were published in 2014. Nearly three-quarters of patients who have MWL seek BCS; however, access is known to vary according to the region. The aim of national guidelines was to standardise access. The purpose of this study was to determine implementation of the national guidelines by clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) in England. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A cross-sectional, web-based survey was sent to all CCG chairs in England...

BACKGROUND: Signaling by fibroblast growth factor is critical for epithelial proliferation, differentiation, and the development of many organs, including the intestine. Fibroblast growth factor 10 and fibroblast growth factor 2c are upregulated after massive bowel resection during intestinal adaptation. This pathway is conserved highly. We hypothesized that inhibition of fibroblast growth factor signaling would impair intestinal adaptation in the zebrafish model of short bowel syndrome and allow insight into the negative regulation of this pathway...

BACKGROUND: In Rathke cleft cysts (RCCs), inflammation by the cyst contents infrequently spreads to the surrounding structures. Calcification, which is regarded as a consequence of chronic inflammation of the cyst wall, can rarely be found in RCCs, and moreover, ossification is extremely rare. CLINICAL PRESENTATION: A 60-year-old woman presented with headaches, fatigue and weight loss due to panhypopituitarism. Magnetic Resonance imaging revealed a mass lesion in the sellar region, which was comprised of two different parts, with hypointensity anteriorly and hyperintensity posteriorly on T1-weighted image (WI), and the rim with significant hypointensity entirely on T2-WI...

: There is an exponential rise of patients with massive weight loss because of bariatric surgery or lifestyle changes. The result is an increase of patients with folds of redundant skin that may cause physical and psychological problems. The lower body lift is a procedure to correct deformities in the abdomen, mons, flanks, lateral thighs, and buttocks. Complication rates are quite high and could negatively affect the positive outcomes. The purpose of this study is to assess complication rates and to identify predictors of complications to optimize outcomes for patients after lower body lift surgery...
