Using π-Shaped Auricular Cartilage With a Local Flap for Lower Eyelid Support.

Ann Plast Surg 2019 Apr;82(4):403-406

From the Department No. 16 of Plastic Surgery Hospital, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences & Peking Union Medical College, Beijing, China.

Introduction: Auricular cartilage has been largely reported as an available substitute of defected tarsus to restore lower eyelid stability. However, undesirable results such as displacement, detachment, warping, down-gaze disturbance, and surface irregularity of the cartilage graft have been reported in previous reports, some of which require reoperations. In this study, the authors present a new technique to use strips of auricular cartilage with a local flap to restore the lower eyelid stability for a reliable eyelid support. Read More

Eur J Ophthalmol 2019 Jan 8:1120672118820508. Epub 2019 Jan 8.

Ophthalmology Department, Tajo Hospital, Aranjuez, Spain.

Introduction:: The failure rate of both filtration surgery and of aqueous shunt implantation is higher for iridocorneal endothelial syndrome than in other scenarios, due to the continuous proliferation of abnormal endothelial cells over the trabecular meshwork and the filtration area and also due to the more pronounced cicatrizing response shown by these young patients. We present the first case ever described in the literature of a pregnant patient with iridocorneal endothelial syndrome and uncontrolled ocular hypertension who was implanted an Ex-PRESS mini-shunt.

Clinical Case:: A 35-year-old female presented with diminution of vision in the left eye for 2 months. Read More

Chanarin-Dorfman syndrome.

Turk J Gastroenterol 2019 01;30(1):105-108

Department of Medical Genetics, Marmara University School of Medicine, İstanbul, Turkey.

Chanarin Dorfman syndrome is a multisystem, very rare, autosomal recessive lipid storage disorder, characterized by the accumulation of lipid vacuoles in neutrophils, and was first described by Dorfman in 1974. Due to a mutation in the ABHD5 gene of the short arm of chromosome 3, lipid is stored in the granulocytes at various sites in the human body, such as the muscle, liver, eye, ear, central nervous system, and bone marrow. Clinically, the disease is presented with ichthyosis, hearing loss, hepatomegaly, splenomegaly, cirrhosis, cataract, keratopathy, myopathy, and mental retardation. Read More

Compound heterozygous missense mutations p.Leu207Pro and p.Tyr544Cys in TGM1 cause a severe form of lamellar ichthyosis.

J Dermatol 2018 Dec 10;45(12):1463-1467. Epub 2018 Oct 10.

Department of Dermatology, Hokkaido University Graduate School of Medicine, Sapporo, Japan.

TGM1 is the most common gene responsible for lamellar ichthyosis. Previous studies have suggested that patients with lamellar ichthyosis carrying two missense mutations in TGM1 show significantly less severe phenotypes than those with at least one truncating mutation in TGM1. Here, we report a patient with severe lamellar ichthyosis who was compound heterozygous for TGM1 missense mutations, including a novel one. Read More

Colposcopy in Evaluating Bleeding During the Second and Third Trimesters: Short-Term and Postpartum Implications.

Gynecol Obstet Invest 2018 Sep 28:1-5. Epub 2018 Sep 28.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Galilee Medical Center, Nahariya, Israel.

Background: The etiology of vaginal bleeding during pregnancy may be obstetric or non-obstetric. Though colposcopy is generally not part of the routine evaluation of 2nd- or 3rd-trimester vaginal bleeding without obvious obstetrical cause, our department does perform colposcopy and cervical cytology testing in these patients. This study assessed the need and possible contribution of colposcopy in diagnosing the etiology of 2nd- and 3rd-trimester bleeding. Read More

Case report of Wolfe grafting for the management of bilateral cicatricial eyelid ectropion following severe burn injuries.

Ann Med Surg (Lond) 2018 Oct 12;34:58-61. Epub 2018 Sep 12.

Department for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Canton Hospital Zenica, 72000 Zenica, Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Introduction: Eye lid reconstruction followed by severe, extensive body and facial burns represents a surgical challenge due to difficulties to obtain proper, healthy skin graft, tissue ischemia and necrosis.

Presentation Of Case: We present a reconstructive lid surgery of cicatricial bilateral lower eyelid ectropion in a case of 31-year-old man who sustained thermal injuries, affecting more than 60% of total body surface area, causing severe, deep dermal burns. Reconstruction was made using the technique of skin cantus-to-cantus incision, contracture release, orbicularis liberation and lid elevation; and oversizing free full-thickness skin graft (FTSG) (Wolfe technique) from the left inguinal region, as the only healthy skin on the entire body surface.

Porous Polyethylene Implant Associated With Delayed Orbital Complications and Osteomyelitis After Orbital Reconstruction.

J Craniofac Surg 2018 Oct;29(7):1910-1911

Department of Ophthalmology.

Orbital implants are commonly used to repair orbital blowout fractures, to restore the functional and anatomical structure of the orbit. Porous polyethylene implants are a type of alloplastic implant and are widely used for orbital reconstruction as micropores facilitate the growth of fibers and blood vessels through the material. Rare complications associated with porous polyethylene implants used to treat blowout fractures include delayed orbital inflammation and osteomyelitis. Read More
