Mutually improved endoscopic image synthesis and landmark detection in unpaired image-to-image translation.

IEEE J Biomed Health Inform 2021 Jul 26;PP. Epub 2021 Jul 26.

The CycleGAN framework allows for unsupervised image-to-image translation of unpaired data. In a scenario of surgical training on a physical surgical simulator, this method can be used to transform endoscopic images of phantoms into images which more closely resemble the intra-operative appearance of the same surgical target structure. This can be viewed as a novel augmented reality approach, which we coined Hyperrealism in previous work. Read More

Bioactivity of Chitosan-Based Particles Loaded with Plant-Derived Extracts for Biomedical Applications: Emphasis on Antimicrobial Fiber-Based Systems.

Mar Drugs 2021 Jun 23;19(7). Epub 2021 Jun 23.

Centre for Textile Science and Technology (2C2T), University of Minho, Campus de Azurém, 4800-058 Guimarães, Portugal.

Marine-derived chitosan (CS) is a cationic polysaccharide widely studied for its bioactivity, which is mostly attached to its primary amine groups. CS is able to neutralize reactive oxygen species (ROS) from the microenvironments in which it is integrated, consequently reducing cell-induced oxidative stress. It also acts as a bacterial peripheral layer hindering nutrient intake and interacting with negatively charged outer cellular components, which lead to an increase in the cell permeability or to its lysis.

Mechanical strength and hydrostatic testing of VIVO adhesive in sutureless microsurgical anastomoses: an ex vivo study.

Sci Rep 2021 Jun 30;11(1):13598. Epub 2021 Jun 30.

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, University Hospital of RWTH Aachen, Pauwelsstraße 13, 52074, Aachen, Germany.

Conventional anastomoses with interrupted sutures are challenging and inevitably associated with trauma to the vessel walls. The goal of this study was to evaluate a novel alternative adhesive-based suture-free anastomosis technique that uses an intraluminal stent. Overall, 120 porcine coronary vessels were analyzed in an ex vivo model and were examined for their mechanical (n = 20 per cohort) and hydrostatic strength (n = 20 per cohort). Read More

Frenuloplasty: from alpha to omega.

Int J Impot Res 2021 May 18. Epub 2021 May 18.

Department of Urology, Martha-Maria Hospital Nuremberg, Nuremberg, Germany.

Frenuloplasty is a common surgical procedure performed on an outpatient basis either for the treatment of frenulum breve alone or as an additional intervention in patients undergoing circumcision. We aimed to provide tips and tricks on performing frenuloplasty, either alone or in combination with circumcision, and to generate a comprehensive review of the available literature on the matter. We suggest that the frenulum should be divided with a scalpel without the use of diathermy and reapproximated with interrupted 4-0 absorbable sutures. Read More
