Use of a platysma myocutaneous flap for the reimplantation of a severed ear: experience with five cases. (2/117)

CONTEXT: The traumatic loss of an ear greatly affects the patient because of the severe aesthetic deformity it entails. The characteristic format of the ear, with a fine skin covering a thin and elastic cartilage, is not found anywhere else in the human body. Thus, to reconstruct an ear, the surgeon may try to imitate it by sculpting cartilage and covering it with skin. OBJECTIVE: To use a platysma myocutaneous flap for the reimplantation of a severed ear in humans. DESIGN: Case report. SETTING: Emergency unit of the university hospital, Faculty of Medicine, Ribeirao Preto - USP. CASE REPORT: Five cases are reported, with whole ear reimplantation in 3 of them and only segments in 2 cases. The surgical technique used was original and was based on the principle of auricular cartilage revascularization using the platysma muscle. We implanted traumatically severed auricular cartilage into the platysma muscle. The prefabricated ear was later transferred to its original site in the form of a myocutaneous-cartilaginous flap. Of the 5 cases treated using this technique, 4 were successful. In these 4 cases the reimplanted ears showed no short- or long-term problems, with an aesthetic result quite close to natural appearance. In one case there was necrosis of the entire flap, with total loss of the ear. The surgical technique described is simple and utilizes the severed ear of the patient. Its application is excellent for skin losses in the auricular region or for the ear itself, thus obviating the need for microsurgery or the use of protheses or grafts.  (+info)

Lengthening of congenital below-elbow amputation stumps by the Ilizarov technique. (3/117)

Patients with short congenital amputations below the elbow often function as if they have had a disarticulation of the elbow. We have reviewed the results in six patients who had lengthening of such stumps by the Ilizarov technique to improve the fitting of prostheses. The mean lengthening was 5.6 cm (3.4 to 8.4), and in two patients flexion contractures of the elbows were corrected simultaneously. Additional lateral distraction was used in one patient to provide a better surface on the stump. There were no major complications. All six patients were able to use their prosthesis at the latest follow-up after 39 to 78 months.  (+info)

Experimental and clinical application of microvascular surgery. (4/117)

The object of these studies was the development of a technique whereby a vessel of 1 mm or smaller could be easily anastomosed. In total replantation of rabbit ears, only 3 ears survived replantation in 80 attempts in the first series. In the second series of 80, 35 ears survived completely, 3 ears partially survived and 8 additional ears survived the postoperative period, but the rabbits died within 2 weeks due to diarrhea. Thirty-five ears failed and venous obstruction was the primary cause. Free transplantation of a great toe and a second toe to recreate a thumb is also described. The operative procedure of the great toe to thumb transplantation does not appear to be difficult. Six months after operation, the function of the newly created thumb was good. The second toe to thumb transfer was more difficult technically compared to the great toe to thumb transfer due to the much smaller size of the digital vessels of the second toe. However, removal of the second toe causes less disadvantage than the removal of the great toe. Nine months postoperatively, the function of the newly created thumb was satisfactory. Digital replantation is described with 36 cases with 65 complete finger amputations. Thirty-two with 45 fingers survived the reattachment. Repair of one artery per digit is sufficient, although two probably are better. A minimum of 2 veins per digit must be repaired. Prompt re-exploration is imperative if postoperative circulatory impairment occurs. In this group, arterial obstruction was more frequent than venous obstruction as the cause of replantation failure. The function of the replanted fingers is satisfactory in the majority of the cases.  (+info)

Autoamputation of the tongue. (5/117)

Autoamputation is an uncommon phenomenon that has been reported for the fingers, toes, appendix, ovary, spleen, etc. Autoamputation of the tongue has never been reported. An elderly man with carcinoma of lateral pharyngeal wall and tonsil presented with an autoamputated tongue that was attached to the oral cavity with a thin band. The patient required detachment of the tongue and tracheostomy followed by radiotherapy for the primary tumour.  (+info)

Battle casualities. (6/117)

Eighty casualities, mainly due to explosive devices, sustained over a period of 3 1/2 months by the armed forces of the Sultan of Oman in counterinsurgency operations are analysed and their management by a British field surgical team is described. Of the 73 who reached the surgical centre alive, 56 per cent had suffered major injuries, yet all but 2 survived, giving an overall survival rate of 88.75 per cent (71/80). The effects of first aid and rapid evacuation on survival and their influence on the surgical work load and on the facilities required for treatment are assessed, together with their relevance to the planning of military and civilian accident services.  (+info)

The V-Y plasty in the treatment of fingertip amputations. (7/117)

Fingertip amputations are injuries commonly seen by family physicians. The classification of fingertip injuries corresponds with the normal anatomy of the tip of the digit. There are three zones of injury; the V-Y plasty technique is used to repair zone II injuries. The plane of the injury can be described as dorsal, transverse or volar. The dorsal and transverse planes lend themselves to the use of the V-Y plasty technique. In carefully selected injuries, the family physician can use this technique to repair the injured digit. The use of a single V-Y plasty has replaced the original technique that repaired the digit and restored the contour of the fingertip. Good cosmetic and functional results can be obtained. Complications may include flap sloughing, infection and sensory changes.  (+info)

SUNDAY, May 10, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- Asking your child to mow the lawn is a risky proposition, a new study suggests.. About 9,400 American kids are injured by lawn mowers each year, and mowers cause 12% to 29% of all traumatic amputations among them, according to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. Toe and foot amputations are the most common.. Lawn mower injuries are largely preventable, but despite increased awareness, my colleagues and I continue to see a significant number of cases from May through October, some of which can be truly devastating, said study senior author Dr. Theodore Ganley, an orthopedic surgeon at Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia.. His team analyzed data on more than 1,300 patients under age 18 who were treated for lawn mower injuries at 49 U.S. hospitals between 2005 and 2017.. The lawn mower incident rate was 7.26 injuries per 100,000 cases in rural areas, and 1.47 injuries per 100,000 in urban areas, the findings showed.. The average age of injured ...
Recently talk show host Jimmy Fallon explained to his audience how a seemingly minor fall nearly cost him a finger - shedding light on a rare yet serious finger trauma known as a Ring Avulsion injury.. Ring avulsion results from the mechanism of crushing, shearing and avulsion, inducing severe macroscopic and microscopic damage. This type of injury often occurs when a ring that an individual is wearing is caught on an object, usually during a fall or jump. It can also occur when caught on fast moving equipment or just simply in a freak accident.. Damage from the abrupt and often harsh tug of the caught ring can range from a simple contusion to degloving of soft tissue - pulling the skin off circumferentially and stripping away the nerves, tendons and bone. Severe accidents may result in traumatic amputation of the finger.. Ring avulsion can be among one of the most devastating traumatic finger injuries, as often replantation following severe soft tissue damage is not possible - requiring ...
Amputation refers to the removal of body extremities, such as arms, legs, hands, feet, fingers and toes. Amputation can take place surgically or through trauma.. Surgical amputations usual take place as a matter of last resort when a body part has been damaged too severely to be saved or has a serious infection which may spread to other parts of the body.. Traumatic amputations involve an extremity being torn or cut from the body during an accident. These most often occur in road accidents, in particular those involving bicycles, motorcycles and pedestrians, and accidents at work, especially were heavy machinery is involved.. No matter the cause, amputation will have a dramatic, possibly life changing, effect on the sufferer. Aside from the pain and suffering you may not be able to continue to work in the role you had prior to the incident or even at all. You may have difficulty in performing tasks you previously took for granted and could need a prosthetic limb, a wheelchair or other walking ...
More than half of children injured in lawn mower accidents require an amputation of some sort, according to a study released March 1.. Researchers combing through data involving 199 children injured in lawn mower accidents in Pennsylvania found that 106 of those kids - or 53 percent - needed to undergo an amputation, such as removal of a finger or toe. The study was released at the 2016 meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. The lawn mower injuries happened between 2002 and 2013 among kids up to age 18.. We have to find a way to stop kids from being around mowers, says Dr. Douglas Armstrong, lead author of the study and director of pediatric orthopaedic surgery at the Penn State Hershey Pediatric Bone and Joint Institute. Many parents dont realize that the blade is such a forceful, blunt instrument - even if it is hidden under the mower.. ...

Health experts estimate that between 1,700 and 2,000 children in the United States are injured each year by riding power lawn mowers. Between the years 2003-2005 in Indiana, 40 percent of all lawn-mower related injuries that were serious enough to require hospitalization involved children less than 16 years of age. One half of these hospitalizations involved children 6 years of age or younger.. The majority of lawn mower-related injuries to children are to the legs, feet, or toes, said Dr. Graves. When children come in contact with the rotating blades, the resulting injuries often cause deep cuts to body tissues and bones, requiring many surgical procedures.. According to state health officials, its not just the lawn mowers themselves that can cause injury. Young children can fall or slip into the operating mower blade while playing and running nearby. Children can be injured while operating the mower themselves when too young to do so, or when preschoolers and school-age children fall off ...

The quality of cut due to the slicing scissor type action of the cylinder lawn mower, if maintained correctly, is superior to that of the chopping or smashing action of a rotary mower.
Sharp mower blades do a better job of cutting the grass with less damage to the grass. A dull mower blade tears the grass rather than making a smooth cut. This ragged leaf actually reduces the green color to the lawn and creates avenues for disease to enter the plant system. Monitor the mower blades

Background: Bilateral traumatic amputation and limb-threatening injury of the lower extremities is more challenging than the unilateral amputation. Successful replantation of both lower extremities has been reported previously. However, orthotopic implantations may not be possible when amputation of both lower limbs with different levels of section and degrees of damage to surrounding tissues occurs. It was reported that the crossover replanted foot in combination with prosthetic limb is better than 2 artificial limbs. Hence, crossover replantation should be considered when anatomic replantation of both lower extremities is not possible as a result of bilateral total or subtotal amputation. To our knowledge, there are few reports about the crossover replantation of the lower extremity in the literature. ...
Productive activity. Twenty-nine participants indicated that the need to work or attend school did not apply to them. In addition, 15 indicated they were not economically self-sufficient.. Discussion. Profile of the study population. The increased ratio of males to females as found in the study is in accordance with the literature2,14,15,16. The majority of participants (21) was younger than 60 years old. This is similar to results from other African studies14,15, but contrasts with those of Hendry18, who found a mean age of 60.3 years in a study based at Tygerberg Hospital. It appears that Diabetes Mellitus (DM) caused amputations at relatively younger ages in the current study population, since Table III shows that DM was the cause of the amputation in 19 instances. Reasons for this might be multifaceted and related to race, South Africas stage of economic development and poverty18,19. The findings pointed to a lower rate of traumatic amputations than those found by Bakkes15 and Kidmas et ...

BACKGROUND: Finger injuries are particularly challenging with respect to function and aesthetics.

METHOD: Semiocclusive dressing, as described by Mennen and Wiese in 1993 is a simple and well-established method for treating fingertip amputations and soft tissue defects. The method is based on the principle of a moist chamber and is a good conservative option for treating these defects with respect to both function and aesthetics. ...

The inaugural study measures customer satisfaction with walk-behind lawn mowers by examining four key factors (listed in order of importance): performance (including engine power, ease of starting and cutting effectiveness); maintenance (including durability and routine maintenance demands); warranty and price.

The first three reasons are fairly easy to eliminate. If the matter is in the mixture, it is necessary to pour out the old fuel from the tank, prepare a new emulsion from high-quality gasoline and engine oil (if your engine needs a mixture) and pour it into the fuel tank. If the trimmer is running on clean gasoline, its even easier.. In the second case, you must carefully free the trimmer parts from the wrapped grass.. The last reason a lawn mower doesnt work properly will require a little more knowledge and skill from you.. To properly adjust the carburettor for lawn mowers, a specific procedure must be followed. First, clean the air filter thoroughly. The easiest way is to rinse it (it is advisable to sprinkle water on the filter regularly after 9-10 hours of operation).. After that, in the diagram of your trimmer, which is in the operating instructions for the device, find the adjustment screws. Usually there are three of them: the first is responsible for the fuel supply, the second for ...

Hand injuries occur at all ages. With an aging population globally an increasing number of hand injuries among the elderly is to be expected. The aim of the present study is to describe the health characteristics and detailed injury patterns for elderly with hand injuries, with incidence, as a background for further studies on the topic. Specific knowledge is currently lacking about hand injuries among this group. The study is a retrospective cohort study from a single hand surgery centre. Data were collected for 286 patients, aged | 65 years, treated for traumatic hand injury between July 1, 2013 and June 30, 2014 at the Department of Hand Surgery in Malmö. Incidence was 21.3/10000 inhabitants/year. The 286 patients included comprised 145 women and 141 men. The men had more severe injuries, often involving a wound, while women most commonly sustained a fracture after a fall. The men were younger than the women and required more surgery/admissions. Among all patients, 13% were healthy, while 27%

What is amputation?. Amputation is the complete removal of an injured or deformed body part. An amputation may be the result of a traumatic injury or may be the result of a planned operation where the finger must be removed. Some traumatically amputated fingers may be replanted or reattached, but in some cases, reattachment of the amputated finger is not possible or advisable. Conditions, such as a tumor, may require that a finger be surgically amputated to preserve a persons health.. How is an amputation done?. When an amputation is necessary, the surgeon removes the injured body part and prepares the remaining part for future prosthetic use. This means careful treatment of the skin, muscles, tendons, bones and nerves, so that a prosthesis can be worn with comfort. The surgeon decides the length of the remaining body part based on medical and prosthetic factors.. What can I expect after surgery?. For the first couple of weeks, you should expect some pain, which is controlled with pain ...
It is necessary to adjust the speed with the carburetor screw. The mower is placed in such a way that the fuel falls pointwise on the bottom of the carburetor. To do this, lay the tool so that there is an air filter on top.. Next, you need to remove it and pour a little fuel into the carburetor, then installing all the parts in place. The engine should start.. You can pull the starter handle while closing the carburetor air damper. Then open it and pull the starter a couple more times. This is a fairly universal method, proven over the years.. These tips are not a panacea, but they are quite effective and useful.. The mower stalls immediately after starting. The main reason for this problem is the incorrect carb adjustment. Defining this problem is quite simple. strong vibration will be felt during the operation of the mower. You can fix the problem yourself by looking at the instructions, which describe in detail the problem and troubleshooting methods.. Particular attention should be paid to ...
My husband and I have a push reel mower and at first I did most of the mowing.

I felt good that I was out there showing those men that not only can I mow the lawn, but I dont need a fancy powered-up mower to do it. Plus, its good exercise and youre not polluting. All around - a good choice.. ...

According to the EPA, small engines account for about 25 percent of hydrocarbon emissions and 30 percent of carbon monoxide emissions from mobile sources. Push mowers pollute as much in an hour as 11 cars, riding mowers as much as 34 cars, and boats as much as 348 cars.. And although they accomplish that filthy feat using less than two percent of the nations fuel, small engines may become a key stumbling block to receiving EPA approval for mid-range ethanol blends like E20 and E30 because before those fuels can be used in cars, we have to prove they will work in mowers, weed whackers, and chainsaws.. You might imagine my bewilderment when I read that the Outdoor Power Equipment Institute (OPEI) - the small engine trade group - sent a letter to the EPA after reading our Blending Better Solutions guide and asked them to protect us all from mid-range blends of ethanol.. Apparently, theyre worried that people may accidentally fill up with E20 or E30 for their leaf blower. And if they do so, OPEI ...
As I was sitting on the back patio this morning drinking my coffee, and trying to wake up enough to start thinking coherently, I witnessed something odd. A landscape worker on an enormous riding lawnmower came speeding by cutting the grass by circling around and around before speeding off to his next target. The mower was followed by a huge flock of ibis, scurrying across the grass, feeding as they went.. Ibis are small, white, crane-like birds---the kind you most typically see in photos perched on top of water buffalo, hippos, and the like. Theres a type of ibis that is found in Florida, and its not uncommon to see them flocked together and feeding. It struck me as interesting that they were following the lawnmower, but then it dawned on me... the reason why they were following it is that the mower was stirring up the insects and other critters in the grass, bringing them to the surface. The mower created a disturbance, but it was in the disturbance that the birds found sustenance and life, ...
It is bushhog. Some words get split into multiples, others get syllables mixed together indistinctly.. A mower, or finish mower is for when theres just grass. When it gets too tall for that, or you have tougher plants mixed in its time to get it bushhogged. Basically a big really heavy duty mower like you cut hay with. The next step up is usually a dozer or front end loader. And/or fire.. Goats will do a number on the viny plants as far up as they can reach. They would definitely get the fence cleared off, one side at a time. Theyre excellent for clearing out woods with lots of undergrowth. They dont always do so great at open areas that are overgrown though. Maybe if you confined them.. The other thing, I dont know if you have pets, but dont let them wander. There will be coyotes, and theyve been known to take small pets from backyards in much more built up areas.. We had neighbors who lost cats and small dogs to coyotes even back in Burbank - I used to see them out wandering when I ...
This shouldnt be a political issue - Because this is about giving veterans who have sacrificed everything -- every option we have to help them fulfill the simple dream of starting a family. As we all know, our men and women in uniform have become increasingly susceptible to reproductive, spinal and traumatic brain injuries due to the changing weapons of war. But thanks to modern medicine, many of these servicemembers are being kept alive and are returning home. In fact, as of the New Year, there are 2,348 servicemembers who are living with reproductive, urinary or pelvic injuries. And like so many of our veterans, these men and women come home looking to return to their lives, to find employment, and so often to start a family. Yet what they find when they go to the VA is that the fertility services available dont meet their complex needs. ...

A lower extremity prosthetic device is provided which includes a modular foot with a heel section and an elongate midfoot section, the heel and midfoot sections being configured for detachable combination via a coupling joint. The heel section is formed from a material of a first predetermined stiffness characteristic and the midfoot section is formed from a material of a second predetermined stiffness characteristic, providing a foot of a differential stiffness characteristic akin to that of a natural foot.
A prosthetic device comprises a column formed of resilient material and having a proximal end and a distal end. The prosthetic device comprises a bladder having a liquid cavity at the distal end. The bladder is inflatable and deflatable to increase and decrease a girth at the distal end of the prosthetic device. The prosthetic device comprises a liquid supply system that couples along the column to the bladder for selectively controlling liquid flow to the bladder to increase and decrease the girth.
The invention provides a prosthetic device for introduction into a duct and for lining an interior wall portion of the duct. The device comprises a generally toroidal, hollow, inflatable sleeve and means for introducing a pressurized fluid into the sleeve. The sleeve is made of a material that is impermeable to the pressurized fluid. At least the outer portion of the sleeve is made of a flexible material capable of deforming to conform to the shape of said interior wall portion of the duct. The device can be introduced into the duct and correctly positioned when it is in a deflated state. Subsequently, it is inflated by introducing the pressurized fluid. This causes the outer portion of the sleeve to expand and grip said interior wall portion of the duct, while leaving a central channel for the passage of the liquid in the duct. The device may also comprise a plurality of such sleeves connected together in a side-by-side relationship.
