Muscle-Splitting Augmentation-Mastopexy: Implant Protection With an Inferior Dermoglandular Flap.

Ann Plast Surg 2019 Feb;82(2):137-144

Hospital Moinhos de Vento, Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil.

Simultaneous augmentation-mastopexy can achieve excellent patient and surgeon satisfaction but continues to pose a challenge, with revision rates of up to 25%. Recurrent ptosis and poor overall breast shape are 2 common reasons for reoperation, whereas some of the most feared complications is breast implant exposure, infection, and loss secondary to wound breakdown; excessively large implants or too much tension during closure are possible contributing factors. We describe a technique for augmentation-mastopexy combining a muscle-splitting pocket for implant placement along with an inferior flap, which helps secure the implant in place and provides coverage in case of wound dehiscence.

Paul-Jer Chen

Biomedicine (Taipei) 2018 Dec 26;8(4):21. Epub 2018 Nov 26.

Department of Neurosurgery, China Medical University Hospital, China Medical University, Taichung 404, Taiwan.

Generally regarding as a safe treatment for Parkinson's disease (PD) for the past 20 years, deep brain stimulation (DBS) is also an example of precision medicine where surgeons need to titrate individual patient's stimulating electrodes one by one down to the scale of micrometer for the maximum therapeutic effect. In order to prevent operation induced psychiatric complications and minimize any other potential side effects, we have followed 103 patients received this treatment provided by a single surgeon in the same medical institution from 2004 to 2017. We identified each patient complaint from nursing care records and complication data from medical charts during the perioperative hospitalization period to see if any of them correlate statistical significantly with the DBS lead placement procedure.

How to Avoid Posterior Interosseous Nerve Injury During Single-Incision Distal Biceps Repair Drilling.

Clin Orthop Relat Res 2018 Nov 5. Epub 2018 Nov 5.

D. Becker, N. Hammer, Anatomy Department, University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand F. A. Lopez-Marambio, Hamilton Hospital, Hamilton, New Zealand N. Hammer, Department of Orthopedic and Trauma Surgery, University of Leipzig, Germany Fraunhofer IWU, Dresden, Germany D. Kieser, Orthopaedics Department, Christchurch Public Hospital, Christchurch, New Zealand.

Background: The posterior interosseous nerve (PIN) is occasionally damaged during distal biceps tendon repair. But to our knowledge, no studies have examined the position of the PIN in relation to the bicipital tuberosity in full supination, which is the recommended position during single-incision distal biceps repair or reconstruction QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: (1) What is the anterior safe zone when exposing the anterior tuberosity with the arm in supination? (2) When drilling the radial tuberosity for bicortical button placement in full supination, how should the drill be angled to avoid PIN injury?

Methods: Fifteen adult cadaver elbows had the PIN dissected around the proximal radius. The position of the PIN was measured relative to the most ulnar aspect of the radius at three sites in full supination: at the bicipital tuberosity (bicipital tuberosity-PIN), 10 mm proximal to the bicipital tuberosity (bicipital tuberosity-proximal), and 10 mm distal to the bicipital tuberosity (bicipital tuberosity-distal).
