BACKGROUND: In immunologic research, mice have advantages over other animals, such as low costs, easy handling, suitable lifecycle, and adequate laboratory resources. However, mice vascularized composite allotransplantation (VCA) surgery is not popular, partly because of technical difficulties and high mortality rates. Our goal was to demonstrate a face transplantation model in mice that includes skin, mandible and oral mucosa. METHODS: We developed a new syngeneic face transplantation model composed of skin, mandible, teeth and oral mucosa in C57BL/6 mice...

BACKGROUND: To evaluate the effect of four different treatment protocols on maxillofacial growth in patients aged 7-8 years with UCCLPA. METHODS: 61 patients with non-syndromic unilateral complete cleft lip, palate and alveolus were selected into this study. Patients with UCCLPA who had a repaired lip and unrepaired palate were placed in group 1. Patients with UCCLPA who received one-stage palatoplasty were placed in group 2. Patients with UCCLPA who received two-stage palatoplasty were placed in group 3...

BACKGROUND: Random pattern skin flaps are applicable to reconstruct any defects in plastic surgery. However, they are limited to apply due to necrosis. Sumatriptan, a selective 5HT 1b/1d agonist, routinely use to subset acute migraine attack. Recent studies suggested Sumatriptan may induce vasodilation in lower concentration. Our aim is to investigate the effect of sumatriptan on skin flap survival and the role of nitric oxide in this phenomenon. METHODS: Seventy-two Sprague-Dawley male rats were divided into 8 groups...

BACKGROUND: Elbow flexion after upper brachial plexus injury may be restored by a nerve transfer from the ulnar nerve to the biceps motor branch with an optional nerve transfer from the median nerve to the brachialis motor branch (single and double fascicular nerve transfer). This meta-analysis assesses the effectiveness of both techniques and the added value of additional reinnervation of the brachialis muscle. METHODS: Comprehensive searches were performed identifying studies concerning restoration of elbow flexion through single and double fascicular nerve transfers...

Bahman Guyuron, Ji H Son
Established creases and wrinkles do not predictably respond to the fat injection technique. We describe a minimally invasive, yet simple technique to address recalcitrant facial rhytids and minor depressed scars. This technique optimally requires a concomitant procedure whereby suitable fat or dermis graft could be available for grafting without having to make another incision. However, if needed, the graft can be harvested from an area such as post-auricular sulcus where the incisional scar is successfully concealed...

BACKGROUND: Breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma's increasing incidence and associated mortality has become alarming. However, many patients remain unaware of their risk for BIA-ALCL and may overlook early warning signs of the cancer. The authors aim to contact all breast implant patients at a single institution to educate them on the disease and provide screening and treatment as indicated. METHODS: All patients who had breast implants placed at Penn State Hershey Medical Center from 1979 to November 2017 were mailed a letter to describe BIA-ALCL and to encourage a follow-up visitation...

BACKGROUND: Many techniques have been described to correct prominent ears including cartilage suturing, cartilage scoring and cartilage breaking techniques. Understanding the topography and anatomy of the auricular cartilage is crucial to perform safe otoplasty with consistent results. PATIENTS AND METHODS: 200 consecutive patients with prominent ears were operated on using a modified Mustarde and Furnas technique with some refinements and without performing any cartilage scoring or excision...

PURPOSE: Aesthetics plays a central role in determining success in plastic surgery. Understanding perceptions of favorable aesthetics is critical to ensure patient satisfaction. Eye-tracking technology offers an objective way to evaluate attention and understand how viewers direct their focus in patients who undergo cosmetic facelift procedures. METHODS: Thirty-six subjects ranging from layperson to attending plastic surgeon viewed 15 sets of photos before and after patients underwent an elective facelift procedure...

BACKGROUND: Microvascular breast reconstruction is a complex procedure that can be associated with high complication rates. While a number of individual predictors of peri-operative complications have been identified, few studies have explored interaction between risk factors. Understanding the synergistic effects of multiple risk factors is central to accurate and personalized pre-operative risk prediction. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective cohort study of patients who underwent microvascular breast reconstruction at our institution between 2009 and 2017...

OBJECTIVE: The deep intramuscular approach during buttock augmentation with fat grafting has been associated with a significantly increased risk for pulmonary fat embolism. This study was designed to provide guidance for the injection into the subcutaneous fat i.e. the area between the muscle and the skin; the so-called "safe space". MATERIAL AND METHODS: A total of 150 Caucasian individuals were investigated with an equal distribution of males and females (each n=75) and a balanced distribution of age (n=30 per decade: 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59 and 60-69 years) and body mass index (BMI) (n=50 per group: BMI≤24...
