Objective. Low-Level Laser Therapy encourages the healing process, reduces inflammation and pain. The aim of this study is to identify the impact of Low-Level Laser Therapy on tissue regeneration with special attention to hard tissues and to compare the effect of several wave lengths in the proliferation and differentiation of cells. Methods. The keywords used were “bone regeneration”, “laser therapy”, “photobiomodulation” OR “bio-stimulation”, “Low-Level Laser therapy” OR “LLLT”, “osteoblast proliferation” AND “differentiation”. Results. The bio-stimulation with Low-Level Laser Therapy also seems to interfere with the osseous integration of implants, by increasing its adherence on the bone-implant surfaces. Evidence has shown ...


Current Perspectives Of Oncoplastic Breast Surgery In Pakistan, Lubna Mushtaque Vohra, Dua Jabeen, Danish Ali, Syeda Sakina Abidi, Sana Zeeshan, Abida Khalil Sattar 2022 Aga Khan University

Current Perspectives Of Oncoplastic Breast Surgery In Pakistan, Lubna Mushtaque Vohra, Dua Jabeen, Danish Ali, Syeda Sakina Abidi, Sana Zeeshan, Abida Khalil Sattar

Section of General Surgery

Oncoplastic breast surgery is based on the concept of tumour-specific immediate reconstruction. It combines both local and distant techniques to maintain breast texture, symmetry and cosmesis without compromising oncological outcome. The current narrative review was planned to highlight the current state and future of oncoplastic breast surgery in low- and middle-income countries where its utilisation in surgical practice remains insubstantial because majority of the surgeons who are treating breast cancer are either general surgeons or breast surgeons who do not have expertise in oncoplastic breast surgery or reconstructive surgery. Moreover, scarcity of financial resources, ignorance about oncoplastic breast surgery techniques ...

Impending Backlog Of Cleft Palate Patients Due To Covid-19, Jacob J. Wood, Garrick Gu, Robert D. Guber, Douglas Miller Rothkopf

COVID-19 Publications by UMass Chan Authors

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has placed an unprecedented strain on healthcare systems worldwide, but while high-income countries (HICs) have been able to adapt, low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) have been much slower to do so due to a lack of funding, skilled healthcare providers, equipment, and facilities. The redistribution of resources to combat the pandemic in LMICs has resulted in decreased surgical volumes at local surgical centers as well as a dramatic reduction in the number of humanitarian aid missions. Despite recent global investment in improving the surgical capacities of LMICs, even in the pre-COVID-19 era there was a vast ...


Quality Of Life Before And After Cosmetic Surgery: Should Body Dysmorphic Disorder Be Considered An Absolute Or Relative Contraindication For Cosmetic Surgery?, Lindsay Conlisk 2022 Arcadia University

Quality Of Life Before And After Cosmetic Surgery: Should Body Dysmorphic Disorder Be Considered An Absolute Or Relative Contraindication For Cosmetic Surgery?, Lindsay Conlisk

Capstone Showcase

Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD) has historically been regarded as a strong contraindication for cosmetic plastic surgery. New research now suggests that the contraindications to cosmetic surgery in patients with BDD may not be so absolute. This paper reviews diagnostic criteria, diagnostic challenges, and current standard of treatment of BDD. It then presents the idea of insight analysis in the BDD patient as a significant factor in determining if patients with BDD may or may not benefit from cosmetic surgery or procedures.

Conservative Management Of Median Nerve Brachial Plexopathy After Microwave-Based Miradry Treatment For Axillary Hyperhidrosis, Frank G. Lee, Ahmed Mansour, Sean J. Wallace Md, Nathan F. Miller

Research and Historical Works - 2021

Axillary hyperhidrosis is characterized by excessive sweating of the armpits, which can significantly affect quality of life. A new microwave-based therapy, MiraDry (Miramar labs, Sunnyvale, Calif.), is a promising minimally-invasive treatment option. We report a case of unilateral brachial plexus thermal injury in a thin 19-year-old man treated for axillary hyperhidrosis with the MiraDry system. He initially experienced swelling and pain in the left hand and was prescribed 1 week of methylprednisolone. He then presented 1 week later with induration and swelling of bilateral axillae with swelling of left thumb, left index, and left long fingers, decreased sensation in median ...

Epidermolysis bullosa (EB) is a rare, serious genetic disease, incurable through the current means. Apart from this initial definition, there was later some ease in the definition of the disease, including the manifestations of toxic epidermal necrolysis and Stevens Johnson syndrome in this entity. In medical practice, there are cases that do not overlap with the description in the literature, thus the treatment must be adapted and personalized to the particularities. We present the case of a female new-born, with "de novo" mutation for the early-onset antenatal epidermolysis and our personalized therapeutic management, based on collagen from bovine corneas by ...


Does Full Transfixion Incision Decrease Tip Projection In Endonasal Septoplasty With Spreader Grafts?, William Wesley Heckman MD, Tyler Bliss MD, Sarah Schmoker MD, Katie Geelan-Hansen MD 2021 University of Nebraska Medical Center, Otolaryngology- Head and Neck Surgery

Does Full Transfixion Incision Decrease Tip Projection In Endonasal Septoplasty With Spreader Grafts?, William Wesley Heckman Md, Tyler Bliss Md, Sarah Schmoker Md, Katie Geelan-Hansen Md

Graduate Medical Education Research Journal

The classic teaching is that full transfixion incision decreases nasal tip projection by disrupting the attachment of the medial crura to the caudal septum. A significant decrease in tip projection after endonasal septoplasty with spreader grafts through a full transfixion incision has not been identified at our institution. A retrospective cohort study was performed at our institution. Inclusion criteria consisted of patients undergoing endonasal septoplasty with spreader graft placement and available preoperative and one-year postoperative photos. Patients who had undergone an open approach, cosmetic rhinoplasty, had intercartilaginous incisions, or other procedures to affect tip projection were excluded. A query identified ...


4dct Analysis Of In-Vivo Carpal Kinematics During Fem, Manisha R. Mistry 2021 The University of Western Ontario

4dct Analysis Of In-Vivo Carpal Kinematics During Fem, Manisha R. Mistry

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

A consensus, detailed understanding of carpal kinematics remains elusive. 4-dimensional CT (4DCT) is a validated modality capable of accurately studying in-vivokinematic motion. The objective of this work is to quantify normal, in-vivo kinematic motion of the carpus through a flexion-extension arc of motion using 4DCT. Ten healthy, un-injured volunteers underwent a 4DCT scanning protocol through a complete arc of flexion-extension motion. Kinematic changes in motion were quantified using helical axis motion data for each carpal bone. Helical axes were compared between bones and statistical analysis performed using repeated-measures ANOVA to identify difference in kinematic motion between bones (p<0.05). The carpus can be divided into four main kinematic blocks: the distal carpal block, the proximal carpal block and individual scaphoid and trapezial blocks. This work supports an additional segmentation of the trapezium from the distal carpal row, which suggests some modulation between the scaphoid and distal carpal row.

Outcomes Of Implant Removal And Capsulectomy For Breast Implant Illness In 248 Patients., Jacob Y. Katsnelson, Joseph R. Spaniol, Joshua C. Buinewicz, Frederick V. Ramsey, Brian R. Buinewicz

Abington Jefferson Health Papers

Background: Breast implant illness (BII) is a term popularized by social media to describe systemic symptoms that patients ascribe to their breast implants. Though the concept of implants as an underlying cause for a systemic illness remains controversial, few studies have delineated the implant characteristics, capsular histology, and outcomes of patients who undergo explantation for BII.

Methods: We retrospectively reviewed the demographics, presenting symptoms, outcomes, capsular histology, and culture results of all women who presented to the senior author with symptoms attributed to BII and underwent breast implant removal with capsulectomy from August 2016 to February 2020. Chi-square and logistic ...

Open Access Publications by UMass Chan Authors

Bullous pemphigoid is an autoimmune blistering disease where patients suffer from painful bullae, often covering large portions of the skin and requiring management with immune-suppression. Our case report of recurring bullous pemphigoid illustrates the importance of considering immunosuppressive perioperative management in patients with a history of autoimmune blistering even when the disease has been quiescent for some time. With multidisciplinary care and immune suppressive therapies in the perioperative period, a free flap complicated by recurrent bullous pemphigoid can be salvaged.

Rhinoplasty in children has raised concerns about its safety in the pediatric population. There is scarcity of evidence describing outcomes and surgical techniques performed in pediatric rhinoplasty. We analyzed post-operative complications and cartilage preferences between plastic surgeons and otolaryngologists.Data was collected through the Pediatric National Surgical Improvement Program from 2012 to 2017. Current Procedure Terminology codes were used for data extraction. Patients were grouped according to type of rhinoplasty procedures (primary, secondary, and cleft rhinoplasty). A comparison between plastic surgeons and otolaryngologists was made in each group in terms of postoperative complications. Additionally, a sub-group analysis based on cartilage ...

First Profunda Artery Perforator Flap For Breast Reconstruction Performed At A Va Hospital, Kaitlynne Pak, Amanda Fang, Garrison Leach, Riley Dean, Sarah Crowley

Medical Student Research Symposium Abstracts and Posters

The profunda artery perforator (PAP) flap for breast reconstruction originated by Dr. Robert J. Allen in 2010 after multiple failed attempts at using muscle-sparing transverse rectus abdominal muscle (MS-TRAM) flap and implants. This flap method was initially approached due to the patient’s request for an autologous tissue graft that did not sacrifice muscle. The PAP flap has grown significantly in popularity and usage in breast reconstruction and makes up to about 16% of autologous breast reconstruction, coming second to DIEP flaps (76%). This well-tolerated, muscle-sparing approach is ideal for patients without sufficient abdominal fat (low BMI or previous abdominal ...

Medical Student Research Symposium Abstracts and Posters

Complete congenital arhinia is a rare defect of embryogenesis leading to the absence of the external nose and nasopharyngeal airway. In this study, we report our novel multi-staged reconstructive approach of congenital arhinia in addition to literature review. Reconstruction was achieved via several spaced operations. A nasal methyl methacrylate prosthesis was first created from a stereolithographic model for use as a temporary prosthesis and tissue expander. Lefort 1 osteotomy with cannulization was then utilized for midface advancement and nasopharyngeal airway formation. External nasal framework was constructed with bilateral conchal bowl cartilage and rib osteocartilagenous grafts. The patient was overall pleased ...

Npwti Allows Safe Delayed Free Flap Repair Of Gustilo Iiib Injuries: A Prospective Case Series, Hajime Matsumine, Giorgio Giatsidis, Hiroshi Fujimaki, Nobuyuki Yoshimoto, Yuma Makino, Satoshi Hosoi, Mika Takagi, Mari Shimizu, Masaki Takeuchi

Open Access Publications by UMass Chan Authors

Introduction: Free flap lower extremity repair is associated with a high complication rate ( > 31%); higher rates are observed in more severe patients. In cases requiring prior systemic/local stabilization, delayed repair increases complication rate (+10% at 7 days): Negative-pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) decreases complications but only when applied for less than 7 days. Recent limited evidence suggests that augmentation of NPWT with instillation for wound irrigation (NPWTi) might safely extend such window. This study hypothesizes that, through the combined cleansing effect of NPWT and instillation, NPWTi allows safe (low complication rate) delayed free flap repair in severe patients with Gustilo ...

An Inside Look: Oculoplastics And “Droopy Eyelids”, Payton Boere

inSIGHT

In writing this article, I had the pleasure of speaking with Dr. Alison Watson, an oculoplastic attending surgeon at Wills Eye Hospital, all about this exciting and innovative specialty. During our discussion, she said that one of the things she loves most about this field is its diversity, including the range of procedures she gets to perform and patients she is able to treat. While there are procedures common to all oculoplastic surgeons, such as cosmetic and functional eyelid surgery to address both upper and lower eyelid malposition, reconstruction following periocular cancer resection, along with nasolacrimal surgery, Dr. Watson explained ...

Isolated scaphoid dislocation is an extremely rare injury typically caused by high-energy trauma. We present the first observed case of isolated scaphoid dislocation resulting from a non-traumatic injury of the wrist in power-grip tension in a patient with a questionable history of Marfan Syndrome. A 20-yearold right-hand dominant man presented to the emergency department with right wrist pain and deformation after carrying a table. The patient reported a possible history of Marfan Syndrome, but it had never been definitively diagnosed. Imaging revealed radial dislocation of the scaphoid. Bedside closed reduction was performed followed by outpatient ligament reconstruction with return to ...

Implementing An Enhanced Recovery After Breast Surgery Protocol To Reduce Opioid Use, Kendall S. Macdonald, Kelsey D. Reynolds

Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) Projects

Patients undergoing breast surgery are at risk of developing persistent post-operative pain and prolonged opioid use. Most patients who receive breast surgery do not have chronic pain pre-operatively, but up to 60 percent will experience chronic pain post-operatively. AtlantiCare Medical Center made opioid minimization a top priority in the institution and has openly adopted Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) protocols for other surgical specialties. After performing a systematic literature review, an ERAS protocol for breast surgery patients was developed for use in a quality improvement project. Patients selected included those undergoing unilateral or bilateral mastectomy and/or, staged reconstruction surgery ...
