Optimizing the Aesthetic Result of Parotidectomy with a Facelift Incision and Temporoparietal Fascia Flap.

Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open 2019 Feb 8;7(2):e2067. Epub 2019 Feb 8.

Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Mass.

The 3 most common problems after a parotidectomy are cheek contour deformity, Frey syndrome (gustatory sweating), and a visible scar on the neck. These problems can potentially be prevented by (1) facelift type incisions, which eliminate the neck incision and (2) interposition of temporoparietal fascia at the parotidectomy site that fills the defect and provides a barrier to aberrant neuronal regeneration. We followed 11 patients who underwent parotidectomy (9 superficial and 2 total parotidectomies) for a variety of parotid tumors between December 2001 and January 2018. Read More

Negative Pressure Wound Therapy with Instillation as Conservative Management for a Large Abdominal Wound Following Incarcerated Parastomal Hernia Repair.

Cureus 2018 Dec 13;10(12):e3728. Epub 2018 Dec 13.

General Surgery, South Tipperary General Hospital, Clonmel, IRL.

Parastomal herniation is a common complication following stoma creation, necessitating surgical repair in up to one-quarter of cases, including emergency cases of incarceration or strangulation. Following hernia repair with or without mesh placement, surgical sites are at risk of infection post-operatively and this is typically resolved by removing the mesh, which can be technically challenging. Few studies have assessed conservative management options for these types of cases. Read More

Transluminal washout and debridement of extraluminal contamination as an adjunct to endoscopic defect repair.

VideoGIE 2019 Feb 7;4(2):91-94. Epub 2018 Dec 7.

Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, Hershey, Pennsylvania, USA.

Background And Aims: GI tract perforations and anastomotic dehiscence are increasingly effectively being repaired endoscopically; however, well-known and long-held surgical principles must still be honored. One important principle is that significant extraluminal contamination must be washed out, debrided, and drained in conjunction with repair of the defect if the wound is to effectively heal and resolve. Here we describe the use of endoscopic washout and debridement of extraluminal contamination at the time of luminal defect closure in a 7-patient series at our institution, with video demonstration of 2 patients in the series.

Rock-Hard Chronic Thrombotic Occlusion and Its Management in Endovascular Interventions.

Semin Intervent Radiol 2018 Dec 5;35(5):461-468. Epub 2019 Feb 5.

Division of Vascular and Interventional Radiology, Rush University Medical Center, Rush Oak Park Hospital, Chicago, Illinois.

Endovascular recanalization for patient with peripheral arterial disease and the end of its spectrum critical limb ischemia (CLI) has become a preferred method of revascularization due to advancement of techniques and equipment, allowing reduction of limb amputations while maintaining a minimally invasive approach compared to surgical approaches. Interventionalists have undertaken a progressively increasing complexity of diseased vessels in the hopes of providing inline unobstructed flow through occlusions for patients with claudication as well as direct flow to a nonhealing wound in patients with CLI. One of the major roadblocks encountered in lower extremity recanalization procedures is managing severely calcified chronic thrombotic occlusions which decrease luminal revascularization, ultimately increasing use of adjunctive interventions such as subintimal tracking, reentry device utilization, and stent placement.

A Contemporary Evaluation of Peyronie's Disease During Penile Prosthesis Placement: MOST, MUST, and More.

Curr Urol Rep 2019 Jan 30;20(2). Epub 2019 Jan 30.

Division of Urology and Urologic Oncology, City Of Hope, 1500 East Duarte Ave, Duarte, CA, 91010, USA.

Purpose Of Review: The use of penile implant for the treatment of both erectile dysfunction and Peyronie's disease has changed little in the last 40 years, primarily limited to modeling and plaque incision. In the current review, I explore the history of Peyronie's treatment at the time of penile prosthesis placement and explore new surgical options that help resolve several of the issues that were not treated with the traditional approaches.

Recent Findings: Advancements have been made in the area of graft material, lengthening procedures, and transcorporal techniques. Read More

Phase-specific functions of macrophages determine injury-mediated corneal hem- and lymphangiogenesis.

Sci Rep 2019 Jan 22;9(1):308. Epub 2019 Jan 22.

Department of Ophthalmology, University Hospital of Cologne, 50937, Cologne, Germany.

Macrophages are critical mediators of injury-associated corneal hemangiogenesis (HA) and lymphangiogenesis (LA). Yet, molecular regulators of the hem- and lymphangiogenic potential of corneal wound macrophages are poorly understood. Using two different mouse models of acute (perforating corneal incision injury) and chronic (corneal suture placement model) corneal injury, here we identified distinct functions of early- versus late-phase corneal wound macrophages in corneal HA and LA.

J Bacteriol 2019 Apr 13;201(7). Epub 2019 Mar 13.

Department of Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA

RNA-DNA hybrids are common in chromosomal DNA. Persistent RNA-DNA hybrids result in replication fork stress, DNA breaks, and neurological disorders in humans. During replication, Okazaki fragment synthesis relies on frequent RNA primer placement, providing one of the most prominent forms of covalent RNA-DNA strands The mechanism of Okazaki fragment maturation, which involves RNA removal and subsequent DNA replacement, in bacteria lacking RNase HI remains unclear.
