Mega-endoprostheses enable wide management options in the treatment of primary and periprosthetic fracture of the lower extremities. In this study, we report on the use of custom-made subtotal diaphyseal endoprosthetic replacement in treatment of interprosthetic femoral fracture. This procedure is off-label, but in this particular case, it was the safest and most stress-stable treatment option. The implant was delivered within three weeks. The surgical procedure for subtotal replacement of the femoral diaphysis was performed without any intra- or postoperative complication...

INTRODUCTION: Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) is an is an autosomal dominant heritable tumor predisposition syndrome.. Peripheral nerve sheath tumors (PNST) are a hallmark of NF1. Plexiform neurofibromas (PNF) are neoplasms that are characteristic of NF1, often causing disfiguring effects (e.g., on the face), and are considered precancerous lesions. Previous studies have shown that facial PNF (FPNF) have an impact on the shape of facial bones. This study examines deviations of mandibular symmetry from cephalometric reference planes considering the topography of FPNF...

Fournier gangrene is a disease characterized by necrotizing fasciitis of the perineal and genital region, resulting from synergistic polymicrobiotic infection. Most infections can be localized to a cutaneous, urethral, or rectal source and can culminate in a fulminant sepsis. Current state of the art is systemic broad-spectrum antibiotics and serial aggressive debridement which result in superficial perineal defect of wide dimensions. We compiled all the cases of Fournier gangrene that required reconstruction after debridement in Centro Hospitalar Universitário Lisboa Central from 2018 to 2022...

This is the first report on a localized pigmented villo-nodular synovitis (PVNS or TSGCT) occurring in the trochanteric bursa. Bursal involvement in PVNS is extremely rare. Most often PVNS occurs either as a localized or diffuse lesion in a major synovial joint, such as the knee, ankle joint or hip joint. In principle, all synovial structures can be involved. The case reported here is remarkable regarding the long period between the occurrence of the first symptoms and the final diagnosis as well as the age of the female patient (75 yrs)...

The German guideline for oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) describes the recommended diagnosis and treatment procedures for OSCC and ensures the highest quality patient care. However, the current German guideline for OSCC is indistinct and therapy planning is not standardized in detail between centers. To address this, the current diagnostic and therapeutic strategies in different oral and maxillofacial surgery departments in Germany were summarized using a uniform questionnaire. The results revealed high standards in oncologic maxillofacial care, but non-uniform standards exist between centers...

The deep inferior epigastric artery perforator (DIEP) flap is an excellent option for microsurgical breast reconstruction. In selected cases, e.g. in case of previous abdominoplasty, other autologous options like transverse upper gracilis (TUG) or superior gluteal artery perforator (sGAP) flaps can be considered. The anterolateral thigh (ALT) flap is reported to be used as a salvage procedure in selected cases of breast reconstruction, where other flaps were not available or failed. We present a case of a 41-year-old woman who was undergoing bilateral breast reconstruction after bilateral mastectomies following implant-based mastopexie and multiple infections...

Biomaterials of natural origin have recently gained increasing attention in the field of dental implantology. The requirements for such materials, however, are very high. In addition to high clinical efficiency in tissue regeneration, wound healing should be demonstrably positively influenced. The translational division for regenerative orofacial medicine of the Clinic and Polyclinic for Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery of the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf (UKE) is examining this research topic by investigating which innovative treatment methods for the reconstruction of bone defects or for augmentative procedures can be applied in the future or are already being applied in the field of oral and maxillofacial surgery...
