Toe keloid after nail extraction treated with surgical excision: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2017 Dec;96(51):e9373

Department of Plastic Surgery, Peking Union Medical College Hospital.

Rationale: In this study, a case of toe keloid after nail extraction is presented, in which the keloids on both toes were resected by surgical excision. Keloids (from the Greek word meaning "crab's claw") are fibrous growths that extend beyond the original area of injury to involve the adjacent normal skin. In general, keloid tendencies appear to be regionally isolated to keloid-prone areas, such as the chest, ears, and deltoid regions, whereas the hands and feet are usually spared, which is why this case is meaningful.

Atrophy, fibrosis, and increased PAX7-positive cells in pharyngeal muscles of oculopharyngeal muscular dystrophy patients.

J Neuropathol Exp Neurol 2013 Mar;72(3):234-43

UPMC Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Institut de Myologie, Paris, France.

Oculopharyngeal muscular dystrophy (OPMD) is a late-onset autosomal dominant inherited dystrophy caused by an abnormal trinucleotide repeat expansion in the poly(A)-binding-protein-nuclear 1 (PABPN1) gene. Primary muscular targets of OPMD are the eyelid elevator and pharyngeal muscles, including the cricopharyngeal muscle (CPM), the progressive involution of which leads to ptosis and dysphagia, respectively. To understand the consequences of PABPN1 polyalanine expansion in OPMD, we studied muscle biopsies from 14 OPMD patients, 3 inclusion body myositis patients, and 9 healthy controls. Read More

Current concepts review: revision rotator cuff repair.

J Shoulder Elbow Surg 2012 Apr 9;21(4):431-40. Epub 2012 Jan 9.

KSF Orthopaedic Center, Houston, TX 77090, USA.

Failed rotator cuff repair may be caused by surgical complications, diagnostic errors, technical errors, failure to heal, and traumatic failure. Revision rotator cuff repair is made technically more difficult by poor tissue quality, tissue adhesions, and retained suture and suture anchor material. Historically, open revision rotator cuff repair yields inferior results compared with primary rotator cuff repair; however, more recent studies show 52% to 69% satisfactory results in small-sized or medium-sized tears.

Pediatric Orthopaedic Department, National Hospital of Pediatrics of Vietnam, Vietnam.

To evaluate the clinical and functional results of surgical treatment for fibrous deltoid muscle in children, a retrospective study has been undertaken. The data were analysed on 105 patients with age over 5 years (182 shoulders) from August 1994 to December 2004. Surgical techniques performed by the author were divided into four types: (i) type I, proximal release of intermediate portion of deltoid muscle; (ii) type II, distal release of intermediate portion of deltoid muscle; (iii) type III, lengthening of intermediate portion of deltoid muscle; and (iv) type IV, distal release of intermediate portion of deltoid muscle and transfer of posterior portion of deltoid muscle to fill the gap.

Keloids: A viral hypothesis.

Med Hypotheses 2008 16;70(1):156-66. Epub 2007 May 16.

Plastic Surgery Unit, Hospital USP Marbella, Avda. Severo Ochoa, 22, Marbella, Málaga, Spain.

The triggering cause of keloid formation on a healing wound remains an enigma. In fact, the hypotheses put forward so far to explain this phenomenon seem inconsistent with some clinical features of the disease. The recently established bonds between infectious agents and some pathologies of unknown origin such as peptic ulcer disease, Kaposi's sarcoma or cervical cancer among others led us to consider a potential infectious origin for keloids.

Description of site-specific morphology of keloid phenotypes in an Afrocaribbean population.

Br J Plast Surg 2004 Mar;57(2):122-33

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, University of West Indies, Mona, Kingston, Jamaica.

By examining the keloid scars of 211 Afrocaribbean patients presenting to the Plastic Surgery unit in Kingston, Jamaica, we have described site-specific morphologies of scarring; keloid disease is not a homogenous biological entity. All cases conformed to clinical criteria for diagnosis of keloid scarring: 369 keloid scars were present in 137 females (2-83 years; mean 29.6 years; SD+/-14. Read More

Anterior shoulder instability: histomorphometric study of the subscapularis and deltoid muscles.

Clin Orthop Relat Res 2002 May(398):121-6

Department of Orthopaedics, University Hospital of Geneva, Geneva, Switzerland.

Recurrent traumatic anterior shoulder dislocation results in soft tissues lesions around the glenohumeral joint. The subscapularis muscle is a major active stabilizer of the shoulder and the hypothesis of the current study is that one would expect pathologic changes within its substance secondary to the trauma. A histomorphometric study of the subscapularis muscle was done of 52 patients operated on for recurrent traumatic anterior shoulder dislocation. Read More

The posteromedial impingement lesion of the ankle. A series of six cases.

Am J Sports Med 2001 Sep-Oct;29(5):550-7

Sportsmed.SA, Stepney, South Australia, Australia.

We report on a series of six cases of posteromedial impingement lesion of the ankle operated on during a 3-year period with excellent or good results and a return of the patients to preinjury levels of activity. This lesion occurs, on occasion, after a severe ankle-inversion injury in which the deep posterior fibers of the medial deltoid ligament become crushed between the medial wall of the talus and the medial malleolus. Initially, posteromedial symptoms do not predominate, compared with the symptoms of the lateral ligament disruption, and they usually resolve without specific treatment. Read More

Progressive catatonia.

Psychol Rep 1999 Feb;84(1):239-46

Department of Psychiatry, Bellevue Hospital Center, New York University School of Medicine, NY 10016-6481, USA.

We present the case of a young man with a diagnosis of a childhood-onset pervasive developmental disorder who developed a progressive neurologic deterioration with persistent catatonia and right hemiparesis. On his initial evaluation approximately three years after the onset of mutism, he manifested right hemiparesis and catalepsy. Two years later, although catalepsy had subsided, motor function had deteriorated so that he could not use his hands to feed or dress himself. Read More

Plastic Surgery Center, Xijing Hospital, Fourth Military Medical University.

Transcervicothoracic skin flap was used to repair the faciocervical scars left after burns in 56 cases. Anatomy and clinical application proved that the transverse cervical artery branches out a constant skin artery before it enters the trapezius muscle and this artery, after crossing the clavicle, is divided into two branches, one extending outwards, and the other downwards. The internal thoracic artery branched out an intercostal perforator on the spot 1 cm to the parasternum. Read More

Lesions of the rotating cuff is a most frequent cause of disorders in the shoulder joint. However, they are frequently misdiagnosed and their manifestations use to be considered as those of scapulohumeral periarthritis, cervical osteochondrosis, or even brachial plexus palsy. The paper deals with symptoms and signs of rotating cuff lesions that are fairly different from those of the conditions above cited. Read More
