Sublaminar polyester bands as a salvage fixation method in the cervical spine: novel application in two patients.

J Neurosurg Spine 2019 Mar 1:1-5. Epub 2019 Mar 1.

1Department of Neurological Surgery, Ohio State University, Wexner Medical Center; and.

Pedicle and lateral mass screws are the most common means of rigid fixation in posterior cervical spine fusions. Various other techniques such as translaminar screw placement, paravertebral foramen screw fixation, sublaminar and spinous process wiring, cement augmentation, and others have been developed for primary fixation or as salvage methods. Use of these techniques can be limited by a prior history of osteotomies, poor bone density, destruction of the bone-screw interface, and unfavorable vascular and osseous anatomy. Read More

Facial Features Underlying the Decoding of Pain Expressions.

J Pain 2019 Jan 9. Epub 2019 Jan 9.

Department of Psychoeducation and Psychology, University of Québec in Outaouais, Canada. Electronic address:

Previous research has revealed that the face is a finely tuned medium for pain communication. Studies assessing the decoding of facial expressions of pain have revealed an interesting discrepancy, namely that, despite eyes narrowing being the most frequent facial expression accompanying pain, individuals mostly rely on brow lowering and nose wrinkling/upper lip raising to evaluate pain. The present study verifies if this discrepancy may reflect an interaction between the features coding pain expressions and the features used by observers and stored in their mental representations.

Postoperative Care of the Facial Plastic Surgery Patient-Forehead and Blepharoplasty.

Facial Plast Surg 2018 Dec 28;34(6):570-578. Epub 2018 Dec 28.

Department of Ophthalmic Plastic Surgery, Instituto de Microcirugia Ocular, Barcelona, Catalunya, Spain.

In any kind of surgery, postoperative care is essential for a good result, but especially when the matter at stake is facial plastic surgery. Despite having performed a perfect surgery, with the least amount of damage to the soft tissues and osteocartilaginous structures, minimal bleeding, and in terms of the surgical time, without adequate postoperative care our results can be affected considerably in the short and long run. Therefore, we must have very clear guidelines regarding postoperative care and the duties of our patients, which should be emphasized during the informed consent of the intervention. Read More

Significant predictors of mathematical literacy for top-tiered countries/economies, Canada, and the United States on PISA 2012: Case for the sparse regression model.

Authors:
Mark V Brow

Br J Educ Psychol 2018 Oct 29. Epub 2018 Oct 29.

Department of Educational Psychology, University of Illinois at Chicago, Illinois, USA.

Background: National ranking from the triennial Programme of International Student Assessment (PISA) often serves as a barometer of national performance and human capital. Though excessive student- and school-level covariates (n > 700) may prove intractable for traditional least-squares estimate procedures, shrinkage methods may be more suitable for subset selection.

Aims: With a focus on the United States, this paper proposes sparse regression for PISA 2012 to discover salient student- and school-level predictor variables for mathematical literacy achievement. Read More

Intradermal Injection of Botulinum Toxin: A Safer Treatment Modality for Forehead Wrinkles.

Ann Dermatol 2018 Aug 28;30(4):458-461. Epub 2018 Jun 28.

Department of Dermatology, Samsung Medical Center, Sungkyunkwan University School of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Intramuscular injection of botulinum toxin A (BTXA) is commonly used for the treatment of forehead wrinkles. In practice, physicians often use an intradermal injection for this purpose, as they feel that there is a lower risk of adverse effects compared with intramuscular injection. However, there are no direct comparative studies between those two injection modalities. Read More

SECONDARY WALL ASSOCIATED MYB1 is a positive regulator of secondary cell wall thickening in Brachypodium distachyon and is not found in the Brassicaceae.

Plant J 2018 Nov 12;96(3):532-545. Epub 2018 Sep 12.

Biology Department, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, MA 01003, USA.

Grass biomass is comprised chiefly of secondary walls that surround fiber and xylem cells. A regulatory network of interacting transcription factors in part regulates cell wall thickening. We identified Brachypodium distachyon SECONDARY WALL ASSOCIATED MYB1 (SWAM1) as a potential regulator of secondary cell wall biosynthesis based on gene expression, phylogeny, and transgenic plant phenotypes.

Reduction of Supraorbital Fractures via a Short Sub-Brow Incision.

J Craniofac Surg 2018 Nov;29(8):2164-2165

Department of Anatomy, Inha University School of Medicine, Incheon, Korea.

The authors report a short-incision supraorbital approach through an upper eyebrow skin incision that was used to treat supraorbital rim fractures in 2 patients.With the patient in the supine position, short incision lines were designed. Their length was usually less than 1 cm (1 or 2 mm medial to the frontal nerve and lateral to the supraorbital nerve), and they were designed at the inferior margin of the eyebrow to avoid injuring the frontal, supraorbital, or supratrochlear nerve.
