Conroy Chow, Joyce T Yuan, Emily S Ruiz, Seaver L Soon, Zaineb Makhzoumi, Sarah T Arron
BACKGROUND: In recent years, health care reform initiatives have aimed to assess quality of care through the use of performance measures. Multiple specialties, including dermatology, have implemented registries to track and report health care quality. OBJECTIVE: The authors review the history and rationale for assessing quality in dermatologic surgery. The authors also discuss the different types of performance measures and the current efforts to develop clinically relevant dermatologic surgery-specific measures...

Eric C Wilkerson, Monica M Van Acker, Bradley S Bloom, David J Goldberg
BACKGROUND: Due to concerns regarding maternal and fetal safety and the absence of evidence to the contrary, laser treatment during pregnancy has traditionally been limited to situations of absolute necessity. OBJECTIVE: This review seeks to examine the available evidence to determine the safety of laser therapy during pregnancy. METHODS: Medical databases were searched for relevant reports from all specialties regarding the use of lasers during pregnancy from 1960 to 2017...

Richard G Glogau, Dee Anna Glaser, Valerie D Callender, Steve Yoelin, Jeffrey S Dover, Jeremy B Green, Laura Breshears, Beta Bowen
BACKGROUND: ATX-101 (deoxycholic acid injection) is approved for reduction of moderate or severe submental fat (SMF). OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the efficacy and safety of ATX-101 in subjects with mild or extreme SMF. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Adults with mild or extreme SMF (based on clinician assessment) were randomized to receive ≤6 treatments with ATX-101 or placebo. Efficacy end points, evaluated at 12 weeks after last treatment, included percentage of subjects who achieved ≥1-grade improvement in SMF from baseline based on both clinician and patient assessment (composite CR-1/PR-1 response) as well as multiple subject-reported outcomes...

Jessica L Gonzalez, Kiera Cunningham, Rebecca Silverman, Elena Madan, Bichchau Michelle Nguyen
BACKGROUND: Immunosuppressed patients have worse outcomes from cutaneous squamous cell carcinomas (cSCCs), although unclear whether it is due to the development of more high-stage tumors or worse outcomes for a given stage. OBJECTIVE: Analyze the impact of immunosuppression on the development of cSCCs and tumor stage-dependent outcomes. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Single-institution 1:2 case-control study of primary invasive cSCCs from 2005 to 2015 in 106 mixed-cause immunosuppressed patients and 212 control subjects matched to age, gender, and race...

Samer F Jabbour, Alexandre E Malek, Elio G Kechichian, Roland R Tomb, Marwan W Nasr
BACKGROUND: Nontuberculous mycobacterium (NTM) infection following cosmetic procedures usually results from inadequate sterile techniques and contamination from nonsterile water. These infections are difficult to diagnose and treat. OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to describe the characteristics of NTM infections acquired after an aesthetic procedure, identify high-risk patients and high-risk cosmetic procedures, and provide a diagnostic and management algorithm for NTM infections occurring after cosmetic procedures...

BACKGROUND: Lower eyelid margin defects can be a reconstructive challenge. A possible alternative is second intention healing of the lower eyelid margin. OBJECTIVE: To determine the cosmetic outcomes and patient satisfaction of second intention healing of the lower eyelid margin after Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS). MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective chart review was performed on patients who underwent MMS of the lower eyelid margin. Patient information was gathered on age, sex, diagnosis, postoperative size, number of Mohs stages, thickness of defect, and clinical photographs...

Julie K Nguyen, Alisen Huang, Daniel M Siegel, Jared Jagdeo
BACKGROUND: Dermatologists routinely perform office-based surgical procedures that result in cutaneous wounds. Wound care instructions are an important resource for postoperative patients. As there is no consensus on the ideal wound care regimen after dermatologic procedures, recommendations may vary. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the current recommendations for wound care following dermatologic procedures. METHODS: The authors conducted a cross-sectional assessment of dermatology wound care handouts available online...

Patrick S Phelan, Ilana S Rosman, Martha L Council
BACKGROUND: Atypical fibroxanthoma (AFX) is a rare dermal neoplasm typically occurring on sun-exposed skin in the elderly. As AFX remains a diagnosis of exclusion, updated characterization and treatment assessments are necessary to support informed diagnosis and management. OBJECTIVE: Characterization of contemporary AFX and surgical outcomes by Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS) and conventional local excision (LE). METHODS: Retrospective cohort analysis of all cases of AFX at our institution from January 2000 through July 2016...

BACKGROUND: Nail braces are an alternative treatment for ingrown toenails. OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to prospectively examine the efficacy of nail braces for treatment of acute inflamed (AI)-type and chronic dystrophic-type ingrown toenails. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The authors conducted a prospective study of patients with ingrown toenails treated at Wan Fang Hospital between January 1, 2017, and July 31, 2018. Evaluation using physician global assessment scores and patient satisfaction questionnaires was performed at 1, 3, and 6 months after the start of treatment and during the final visit...

Sook Hyun Kong, Seok Hyun Han, Ji Hyun Kim, Yong Woo Oh, Hyang Joon Park, Ho Seok Suh, Yu Sung Choi
BACKGROUND: Treatment of nevus sebaceus (NS) on the scalp is usually surgical excision, but the optimal timing is debatable. The scalp presents significant challenges to the reconstructive surgeon because the lack of elasticity of the scalp makes the repair of defects difficult. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to investigate the optimal timing for surgical excision of NS on the scalp through postoperative outcomes. METHODS: The authors retrospectively reviewed the postoperative cosmetic results of patients with a follow-up period of 12 to 15 months...
