    Ribault, L; Martin, J P; Larroque, G


    The authors report their experience of the treatment of 81 cases of keloid scars in Africa. Many methods have been proposed and used but they do not consistently lead to good results. The fact that many operations have been indicates their back of efficacy. The natural tendency towards recurrence dictates the correct choice of operation. The best result is obtained by combining surgery with radiotherapy. PMID:1456722

    Full Text Available The presence of tattoos on the skin of people of all ages is on the rise. On occasion, the tattoo is in close proximity to an area which has to undergo a surgical operation, therefore why not using the tattoo itself to cover the cicatrix?The case we treated was that of a 39 year old female who, for a couple of years, had a large lipoma on her right shoulder which she never treated because it was beneath a large tattoo. During the surgical treatment of the lipoma, we followed the exact lines of the tattoo itself thus obtaining precise access for lipoma removal which minimized visible post operative cicatrix while maintaining the original tattoo design.No similar case was found in literature.

  8. Mechanical oscillopsia after lower eyelid blepharoplasty with fat repositioning. (United States)

    Thinda, Sumeer; Vaphiades, Michael S; Mawn, Louise A


    Blepharoplasty with fat repositioning is a technique used to fill the tear trough in the aging lower eyelid. We describe a patient who underwent transcutaneous lower eyelid blepharoplasty with fat repositioning who subsequently developed mechanical oscillopsia in the right eye exacerbated by facial movement. Surgical exploration revealed cicatrix between the inferior oblique muscle and the anterior superficial musculoaponeurotic system. Excision of the scar bands led to immediate amelioration of symptoms. When performing blepharoplasty with fat repositioning, it is essential to be aware of the anatomic location of the inferior oblique in the anterior inferomedial orbit to avoid incarceration of this muscle.

  9. The status of the lumbar section of the spine after removal of a disk hernia as evidenced by nmr and x-ray computerized tomography

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The results of comprehensive radiodiagnosis in 44 patients previously operated on for lumbar hernias were analyzed. All the findings nuclear magnetic tomography (NMT) and computer tomography (CT) were divided into 3 groups: (1) natural consequences of a surgical intervention without clinical manifestations; (2) complications after a surgical intervention; (3) recurrent hernias or hernias on an adjacent level. The most intricate problem was the differential diagnosis between a recurrent hernia and a posoperative epidural cicatrix. The optimal variant for NMT examination of the patients operated on was shown to be a combination of NMT and CT

  10. Radiation therapy for the prevention of postoperative and traumatic complications

    Kishkovskij, A.N.; DudareV, A.L. (Voenno-Meditsinskaya Akademiya, Leningrad (USSR))


    An analysis of the results of radiation therapy of 587 patients with postoperative and traumatic complications has shown that special ..gamma..-therapy used at early time following trauma or surgical intervention, with the first clinical signs of an incipient inflammatory process (the so-called ''anticipating'' irradiation), makes it possible to avoid the development of serious postoperative, post-traumatic complications: wound suppuration, fistulas, secondary parotitis, postamputation pain syndrome, ''needle'' osteomyelitis, keloid cicatrix, skin graft rejection, etc. In the author opinion, this promising trend in radiotherapy of nontumorous diseases is worth a wider using in clinical practice.

    Major complications of radiation directed to the breast, axilla, and mediastinum were treated in 54 patients from 1974 to 1983. A classification of these complications facilitates both an understanding of the pattern of injury and the development of a treatment plan. Classification: I. Breast necrosis; II. Radionecrosis and Chest Wall Ulceration; III. Accelerated Coronary Atherosclerosis with Median Sternotomy Wound Failure After Coronary Revascularization; IV. Brachial Plexus Pain and Paresis; V. Lymphedema and Axillary Cicatrix; VI. Radiation-induced Neoplasia. The treatment has evolved during the 10-year study period to excision of the necrotic wound, including any tumor, and closure with a transposed muscle or musculocutaneous flap of latissimus dorsi (II, III, V) or rectus abdominis (I, II, VI). This strategy reflects a change from primary use of the omentum during the first years of the study. The vascularity, oxygen and antibiotic delivery of these muscle and musculocutaneous flaps promote wound healing, usually with one operation. The transfer of these muscles has not caused significant functional deficits.

  14. [The treatment of a post-burn deformity and contracture of the neck, using extended flaps with axial type of blood supply]. (United States)

    Zhernov, A A; Zhernov, An A


    Experience of treatment of 24 patients, suffering neck deformity and contracture, using stretched flaps with axial type of blood circulation, was summarized. In total 43 expanders were implanted. The cutaneo-fascial flaps stretching was performed in the neck and thorax. In all the flaps a nutrition artery was included. The neck-brachial flaps, including supraclavicular artery, were applied in 25 (58.1%) patients, the neck-thoracic flaps, using superficial neck artery--in 12 (27.91%), the occipital-neck flaps on a musculocutaneous perforating vessels of occipital artery--in 6 (13.95%). The methods of the expander implantation, the stretching, transposition regimes of plastic material and its fixation were elaborated. The donor sites were closed using stretched tissues, left in place after formation of flaps. Flaps were fixed, using mechanical method of the tissues connection with duplicature formation from deepidermized portion of cicatrix or with polypropylene mesh, which played a role of a dense framework. Then a strong connective tissue bolt was formed, securely fixing transposedstretched tissues. While application of a complex-component vascularized flaps a suppuration have occurred in 3 (6.97%), partial necrosis--in 2 (4.64%) observations. Inclusion of nutritive vessels permit to form large size flaps with a small risk of necrosis occurrence. The stretched perforant flaps application permits to achieve positive result in 95.3% of observations--in immediate and in 81.82%--in far remote period. PMID:22702123

    Objective: Burn injuries in hands are much more complex and the appearance of contractures is a common complication. Hand burn injuries often result in limited functionality, flexion and extension of fingers and present a major hindrance in rehabilitation. The aim of physical therapy and splinting after hand burn injury is to maintain mobility, prevent the development of the contracture and to promote the functionality of hand and good cosmetic results. The purpose of this study is to presents our experience of 38 children with hand burn injuries, admitted and treated at the Department of Plastic Surgery, UCCK-Pristina, Kosovo, during the years 2012-2015. Methods: Physical therapy is focused on active/passive range of motion in affected joints, management of cicatrix, strengthening exercise, coordination and use of splints for correction contractures. Patients were evaluated in three, six months and the definitive evaluation is done after 9 months of physical therapy and splinting. Results: We have improvement in range of motion (ROM), functionality, coordination, muscle force, decrease of keloids scars. Conclusion: This study shows the importance of physical therapy and splinting, achieving good results in preventing contracture, improving range of motion, muscle force and good cosmetic results.

    onto six independent lineages, members of Omphalodes onto three independent lineages. At least 11 of the genera here sampled are deeply nested in other genera. The data show that individual details of nutlet morphology (e.g., winged margins, glochidia) are highly homoplasious. Conversely, a complex of nutlet characters (e.g., characters of the gynobase and cicatrix together with nutlet orientation and sculpturing) tends to circumscribe natural units. Geographical distribution of major clades suggests that the family originated in Africa and western Asia and radiated to eastern Eurasia, with several independent dispersal events into Australia and the New World.

  17. Development of a Best Evidence Statement for the Use of Pressure Therapy for Management of Hypertrophic Scarring. (United States)

    Sharp, Patricia A; Pan, Brian; Yakuboff, Kevin P; Rothchild, Dawn


    Pressure therapy has been considered standard, first-line intervention for the treatment of hypertrophic scars since its introduction in the 1960s. Although widely used, this scar management technique has historically been based on a wide array of anecdotal evidence as opposed to strong scientific support. Evidence has become more prevalent in recent years, necessitating a synthesis to develop an evidence-based clinical guideline. The clinical question was asked, "Among individuals with or at risk to develop active hypertrophic scars, does treatment with pressure therapy improve aesthetic and functional outcomes?" An evidence-based practice project was completed with aims to synthesize relevant literature to determine recommendations for the use of pressure therapy in individuals at risk for hypertrophic scars. A systematic search of the literature was conducted for the dates January 1950 to February 2014 of the following databases: MEDLINE, CINAHL, Cochrane Database for Systematic Reviews,, Cochrane Libraries, Ebsco, Google Scholar, OT Seeker, Ovid, MedLine,,, Pubmed Clinical Queries, and hand search of relevant articles through use of reference lists. Search terms included scar, hypertroph*, pressure therapy, compression therapy, pressure garment, burn, scald, trauma as well as MeSH terms cicatrix and hypertrophic. Articles were reviewed in terms of ability to answer the clinical question as well as strength of conclusions. A total of 45 articles were found and critiqued, 28 of which were relevant to the clinical question. Evidence strength ranged from level 1 to level 5. Results from the studies were synthesized to create clinical recommendations to guide treatment. Based on best available evidence, it is recommended that pressure therapy is utilized to decrease scar height and erythema that it is used for grafts and wounds requiring 14 to 21 days to heal, for 23 hours/day for 12 months, fit to achieve 20 to 30 mm Hg of

Medical records were screened, and photographs and videos were assessed to note the details of various ostial parameters. The major time points in evaluation were 4 weeks, 6 weeks, 3 months, and 6 months post-DCR. The ostia were defined and parameters like shape, size, location, and evolution of ostium were noted. Evaluation parameters were defined for internal common opening (ICO, ostium stents, and ostium granulomas. Ostium cicatrix and synechiae were graded based on their significance. Surgical success rates were computed and ostium characteristics in failed cases were studied.Results: A total of 125 ostia were evaluated on the aforementioned ostium parameters. Because five ostia showed a complete cicatricial closure with no recognizable features, the remaining 120 ostia were studied. The ostium location was anterior to the axilla of middle turbinate in 85.8% (103/120 of the cases. Moreover, 76.6% (92/120 of the ostia were circular to oval in shape, with a shallow base. The ostium size was >8×5 mm in 78.3% (94/120 of the cases. The ICO was found to be located in the central or paracentral basal area in 75.8% (91/120. The anatomical and functional success rates achieved were 96% and 93.6%, respectively. All the five cases with anatomical failures showed a complete cicatrization and the ICO movements were poor in all the three cases of functional failure.Conclusion: The article attempts to standardize the postoperative

    Objective To summarize the experience of emergency treatment and cosmetic repair of bite wound by dog. Methods The curative effects of 119 wounds from 51 cases of bite wound by dog, to be treated from January 2010 to August 2012, were analyzed retrospectively. The principles of medical aesthetics and plastic and cosmetic surgery were followed. A wound without skin and soft tissue defect was sutured accurately according to tissue zonation with a new suture technique, and the needle distance or side distance was limited in 0.2cm to 0.3cm. Otherwise, the wound was repaired by full-thickness skin graft or various flaps according to the principle of "rather near than further, rather simple than complicated". Delayed repair was emphasized. It was pay attention to rehabilitation care. Results After debridement, 37 wounds were sutured directly, 23 wounds were repaired by full-thickness skin grafting and 29 wounds by various flaps. 111wounds healed on the first stage, and the healing rate reached 93.3%. The wounds were in satisfactory apposition and without obvious cicatrix. Any organs didn't appear in malposition and deformity. Eight wounds which were repaired on the first stage didn't heal, and they were repaired by changing dressings or second operations. 84 wounds from 37 cases were followed up. The results showed good appearance and slight cicatrix hyperplasia, a pigmentation in different degree appeared in five wounds covered by skin grafting. In addition, partial excalation of eyebrow or auricle appeared in 3 cases, and facial neuralgia in one case. Conclusion During treating emergency cases of bite wound by dog, if an idea " cosmetic repair of trauma" is followed, the theory of aesthetics and the techniques of plastic and cosmetic surgery are fully used, and a prompt and accurate treatment is put into practice, the aim of cosmetic repair could be come true. In addition, with those wounds, which couldn't be repaired on the first stage, delayed repair would be
