Oncoplastic Nipple Sparing Mastectomy And Immediate Reconstruction In Non-Ideal Candidates, Aaron I. Dadzie, Paul Berry 2024 The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley

Oncoplastic Nipple Sparing Mastectomy And Immediate Reconstruction In Non-Ideal Candidates, Aaron I. Dadzie, Paul Berry

Research Symposium

Background: Mastectomies have long been used as a surgical treatment for malignant and benign disorders of the breast, both as a therapy and prophylaxis in high-risk patients. A nipple-sparing mastectomy (NSM) allows for removal of most of the glandular and ductal tissues while preserving the surface architecture of the nipple-areola complex (NAC). In satisfactory surgical candidates, this procedure allows for superior aesthetic outcomes compared to other mastectomy techniques and minimizes the need for additional procedures to reconstruct the nipple. Here, we summarize the established treatment standards and suggest an expansion of the established surgical techniques and selection criteria of NSM …

Improvement Of Hair Transplantation In Postcicatracial Alopecia, Maurice Fekry, Ebrahim Awad

Journal of Medicine in Scientific Research

Background Because scarred tissue has less blood flow than normal tissue, fewer hair grafts are taken, and the patient may require many sessions to achieve the acquired density, resulting in a lengthy treatment duration of up to 5 years. The use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) improves these findings. Patients and methods A prospective randomized-controlled study was conducted on 15 patients with cicatricial alopecia and candidates for follicular unit extraction hair transplantation, with ages between 25 and 60 years. Results Functional and esthetic outcomes were achieved by adding PRP regimen to follicular unit extraction hair transplantation for cases presented to us …

Women interact with cancer in complex ways, as healthy individuals participating in cancer prevention and screening activities, as individuals living with and beyond a cancer diagnosis, as caregivers for family members and friends, as patient advocates, as health workers and healthcare professionals, and as cancer researchers and policy makers. The topic of women and cancer spans broad terrain, beyond women’s cancers and the biomedical aspects of any type of cancer that women in all their diversities might experience. It is inclusive of the ways in which sex and gender influence exposures to cancer risk factors, interactions with the cancer health …

Oropharyngeal Teratoma: Five-Month-Old Presenting With Failure To Thrive And Severe Obstructive Sleep Apnea., Anna Lawrence, Melissa Gener, Shao Jiang, Jill M. Arganbright

Manuscripts, Articles, Book Chapters and Other Papers

Oropharyngeal teratomas are an extremely rare congenital tumor. They are often diagnosed prenatally and can cause significant airway obstruction and feeding difficulties at birth. We present a five-month-old female that was diagnosed with a palatal teratoma that presented with failure to thrive, difficulty feeding, and eventually with severe obstructive sleep apnea. We present a five-month-old term, otherwise healthy female who became stridulous after an episode of the respiratory syncytial virus at one month old. At three months old, an otolaryngologist diagnosed mild laryngomalacia with no mass identified, and no surgical intervention was recommended. Due to continued poor weight gain, at …


Successful Latissimus Dorsi Free Flap Salvage Using Intraoperative Vasopressors: A Case Report, Aubree Ford, Hugo Palacios Vazquez, Sean Figy 2023 University of Nebraska Medical Center

Successful Latissimus Dorsi Free Flap Salvage Using Intraoperative Vasopressors: A Case Report, Aubree Ford, Hugo Palacios Vazquez, Sean Figy

Graduate Medical Education Research Journal

Arterial thrombosis is a rare, but dreadful complication in microvascular surgery. Here we report on a case of recurrent arterial thrombosis in a latissimus dorsi (LD) free flap used for scalp reconstruction in an 18-year-old woman who sustained a gunshot wound (GSW) to the head. In the immediate postoperative period, internal and external doppler signals to the flap were lost. Emergent surgical exploration revealed arterial thrombosis, which was emergently explored and successfully repaired. Doppler signals were again lost and the flap was emergently explored for a second time. Following revision of the arterial anastomosis, flap perfusion decreased and appeared to …


Red Breast Syndrome And Acellular Dermal Matrix, Allison Podsednik Gardner, Aidee Nunez, Mauricio De La Garza 2023 The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley

Red Breast Syndrome And Acellular Dermal Matrix, Allison Podsednik Gardner, Aidee Nunez, Mauricio De La Garza

School of Medicine Publications and Presentations

Increasingly popular for use in breast reconstruction, acellular dermal matrix (ADM) can provide support and protection to implants. However, use of ADM may be associated with infection and complications, including red breast syndrome (RBS). RBS is an inflammatory event that typically presents with cutaneous erythema over the domain where the ADM is surgically implanted. As ADM use increases, presumably, more cases of RBS will occur. Thus, techniques and tools to mitigate or manage RBS are needed to improve patient outcomes. Here, we describe a case where RBS was diagnosed and interestingly resolved after exchange for a different brand of dermal …

Review Of Orthoplastic Techniques For Lower Extremity Reconstruction: Part One, Benjamin Heddy, Brady Webb 2023 Rochester Regional Health System

Review Of Orthoplastic Techniques For Lower Extremity Reconstruction: Part One, Benjamin Heddy, Brady Webb

Advances in Clinical Medical Research and Healthcare Delivery

Orthoplastic techniques are effective tools for limb salvage in the lower extremity. In order to apply proper techniques successfully, a surgeon must be aware of all the different types of flaps available. Proper pre-operative evaluation and patient selection are also important factors. The following review covers six papers that give surgeons a strong foundation in the anatomical basis and surgical technique of intrinsic muscle flaps and other fasciocutaneous or adipofascial flaps of the foot. These flaps, along with split thickness skin grafts, external fixation, and dermal regenerative templates, quickly close soft tissue deficits in the foot and ankle that often …
