In vitro investigation of heat transfer in calf spinal cord during polymethylmethacrylate application for vertebral body reconstruction. (1/9)

The objective of this experimental study was to investigate the temperature variations within the spinal cord of calf cadavers during polymethlymethacrylate (PMMA) application for vertebral body reconstruction. Cervical spines including the cervical spinal cord of ten fresh cadavers were used. Corpectomy and laminectomy were performed and dura was exposed at the same level for proper placement of thermal sensors. Sensors were placed in multiple holes in the spinal cord at depths of 3, 6, 9 and 12 mm, respectively. Whether the thermal sensors were placed in the gray or white matter was determined by computerized tomography. The white and gray matters of the spinal cord exhibited different thermal properties. The white matter was more conductive and absorbed less heat than the gray matter. The heat sensor nearest to PMMA exhibited temperatures of 42-44 degrees C. The second heat sensor placed at 9 mm depth within the gray matter showed 44 degrees C. The third sensor, which was placed at 6 mm depth within the spinal cord recorded the same temperature as the first, i.e., nearest to PMMA sensor. The fourth heat sensor, which was at the farthest location from PMMA demonstrated 37-39 degrees C. The temperature distribution within the gray matter was inversely proportional to the distance from the heat source. The temperature at the dorsal white matter, which was distant from the heating source, remained nearly constant and was not elevated. Our data suggest that thermal injury to the spinal cord during PMMA application may be expected to be more significant in the gray matter when compared with other neural tissues.  (+info)

Combining chin-jowl implants with local anesthesia facial rejuvenation. (2/9)

Mandibular implantation is an outpatient procedure that can be used in combination with other minimally invasive cosmetic interventions. Specifically, silastic chin implants can help create a strong chin and smooth the jaw-line in carefully selected patients. A standard surgical excision tray plus a few additional simple instruments are required, and a variety of commercially available implants are available for placement via an intraoral or submental approach. Meticulous technique minimizes the small risk of nerve injury and numbness. Chin-jowl implants may be preceded by neck liposuction and immediately followed by a face-lift to achieve overall facial enhancement.  (+info)

Functional outcomes in patients reconstructed with flaps following surgery for hypopharyngeal cancer. (3/9)

Following oncologic surgery for advanced cancer of the hypopharynx, primary closure of the defect of the upper aerodigestive tract is difficult to achieve. Usually locoregional or free flaps are used, the choice being determined by the extent of the surgical defect, the expertise of the surgeons and the general condition of the patient. Aim of the present study was to evaluate the functional recovery of patients who underwent surgical reconstruction, following hypopharyngeal cancer resection, with pedicled or free flaps. A retrospective analysis was conducted examining hospital records of the patients submitted to surgical treatment for hypopharyngeal cancer and reconstruction with pedicled or free flaps in the period between January 1995 and July 2004. Free flaps showed less severe complications, shorter hospital stay, less time to resume oral feeding compared with pedicled flaps. For this reason, we consider free flaps the gold standard for hypopharyngeal reconstruction, while pedicled flaps as the pectoralis major or other locoregional flaps should be used in those cases in which free flap reconstruction is not feasible or contraindicated.  (+info)

Early postoperative bone scintigraphy in the evaluation of microvascular bone grafts in head and neck reconstruction. (4/9)

BACKGROUND: Bone scintigraphy was performed to monitor anastomotic patency and bone viability. METHODS: In this retrospective study, bone scans were carried out during the first three postoperative days in a series of 60 patients who underwent microvascular bone grafting for reconstruction of the mandible or maxilla. RESULTS: In our series, early bone scans detected a compromised vascular supply to the bone with high accuracy (p < 10-6) and a sensitivity that was superior to the sensitivity of clinical monitoring (92% and 75% respectively). CONCLUSION: When performing bone scintigraphy during the first three postoperative days, it not only helps to detect complications with high accuracy, as described in earlier studies, but it is also an additional reliable monitoring tool to decide whether or not microvascular revision surgery should be performed. Bone scans were especially useful in buried free flaps where early postoperative monitoring depended exclusively on scans. According to our experience, we recommend bone scans as soon as possible after surgery and immediately in cases suspicious of vascularized bone graft failure.  (+info)

Neck lift | Cervicoplasty and platysmaplasty. Plastic surgery: Treatment in Germany ✈. Prices on BookingHealth.com - booking treatment online
The platysma bands in the neck are treated during an office visit lasting less than an hour. During the treatment, injections of a muscle relaxant are placed in the platysma muscle. These relaxants block nerve signals, causing controlled weakening of these muscles. This, in turn, causes the bands to flatten, blending in with the rest of the neck.. During the treatment, multiple sites along each platysmal band are injected with muscle relaxant. As soon as the injections are complete, patients are free to return home or go back to work. There are no bandages necessary, and patients do not need to take time away from work to recover. This has become a popular lunchtime rejuvenation treatment for patients seeking a quick enhancement without the downtime associated with surgery. Within a few days, you will start to notice visible effects from the muscle relaxant. Within a maximum of ten days, the platysma bands will have relaxed, making your neck smoother and younger-looking.. The results of this ...

p>Your neck lift procedure may be performed in an outpatient or hospital setting, typically using general anesthesia. Because the neck lift can be combined with a facelift or chin augmentation, the procedure can last as long as 2-3 hours.. During a cervicoplasty procedure, the plastic surgeon will make two incisions either behind or under the ear. The excess skin is trimmed, while the remaining skin is redraped before sutures are placed too close the incision.. In the case of platysmaplasty, the incisions are made either under the chin or behind the ear so that the surgeon can reach the neck muscles to adjust the platysma muscle and/or digastric muscle by removing a small section, or by tightening or realigning the muscles to improve the overall appearance of the neck region. The skin in this area will be redraped before the sutures are placed.. ...
It may sound like something out a science fiction movie, but allogenic head and body reconstruction research is moving full speed ahead at Harbin Medical University in China. Interestingly, it isnt the physiological challenges of joining one animals head to anothers body that is new. In the 1960s and 1970s, Dr. White was pioneering work that dealt specifically with the anatomical complications of such a transplant. Where he failed was in immunotherapy. His animal bodies ultimately rejected the new head, initiating a microscopic battle on the foreign tissue.. We have come a long way since then. The first successful hand transplant was conducted more than a decade ago. Livers, kidneys and other organs are routinely transplanted as well. Though we have not completely solved the immunotherapy issue, we have made great progress. Enough progress that Dr. Xiaoping Ren wants to revisit the head transplant idea.. His 2015 study, Head Transplant in Mouse Model, is only the first step. In this study he ...

Are you unhappy whenever you stand in front of the mirror? Do you want to get rid of the flabby fat and sagging skin below your chin and around the neck? A neck lift surgery might be suitable for you.. Neck lift surgery or also called as Cervicoplasty is performed to significantly downsize the look of sagging skin below the chin and around the neck. It can offer a tighter and firmer appearance to the skin under the chin and neck region that has lost elasticity. This procedure can provide a natural, pleasing and more youthful look with an improved contour.. The ageing of the neck typically causes loose skin, muscle and excess fat. For individuals who plainly want this area taken care of and not the whole face, a neck lift can be favorable. Usual patients of this operation belong to the age range of thirty to seventy.. ...

A treatment strategy for postburn neck reconstruction: emphasizing the functional and aesthetic importance of the cervicomental angle.
Although new restorative materials have improved predictability and outcomes, hard and soft tissue management plays a fundamental role when working in aesthetic areas. To achieve ideal results, preservation of the natural hard and soft tissue architecture is the primary clinical objective. This new proposed AGE protocol illustrates the importance of hard and soft tissue management when working in esthetic and highly compromised areas. This protocol and schematic approach was developed to help the surgical practitioner visualize and divide the problem into a predictable step-by-step workflow. Every step is dictated by biology. All incision designs, flap management techniques, and biomaterials used have been selected to maximize the blood supply in the area and minimize trauma to the vascular network that nourishes our surgical site. This protocol was developed for the treatment of any case presenting a combination of vertical and horizontal, hard and soft tissue deficiency. The protocol will be ...
Onabotulinumtoxin A (Botox) can be a safe and successful off-label treatment of vertical platysma bands of various severities. Due to risk of the botulinum toxin diffusing to the underlying anatomic structures such as the deglutition muscles, the larynx, and the neck flexors, a maximal dose of 100 units has been suggested and there have been no known reports of untoward effects with doses less than 60 units. We present a case of mild to moderate dysphagia in a patient after very low doses of Abobutulinumtoxin (60 units, equivalent to 20 units of Onabotulinumtoxin using a 3:1 conversion ratio). We speculate that the adverse effects noted may be due to several possibilities, such as diffusion, injection technique, or intravascular injection. Thus, although botulinum toxin-A is generally considered a safe off-label treatment for vertical platysma bands, readers should still be aware of the possible side-effects even with low dose use, as supported by our case report of mild to moderate dysphagia with

It appears that 2019 is the Year of the Jawline. A strong jawline is interpreted as a characteristic of strength, beauty, virility, and power. In a study of S&P 500 CEOs, 95% were considered to have a well defined jawline. With advances in aesthetic technology and techniques, achieving that perfect profile is becoming easier, with less downtime, costs, and risks. Here are the top 5 procedures to improve your jawline:. 5) Neck Lift/Lower Face Lift: With incisions placed behind the ears, this surgery can be performed with just local anesthetic. Downtime is about a week or 2. For severe jowling and platysma bands, this will give the best results.. 4) Ablative Laser (Erbium/CO2) or Renuvion(J Plasma): These procedures have significant wound care for a week or more. The skin is stimulated by the heat of the laser/plasma to contract and create collagen. Healing time can take weeks and redness can persist for months. Risks include infection, scarring, hyper and hypopigmentation. Procedure is limited ...
BOTOX Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate-to-severe frown lines between the brows, forehead, crowsfeet, masseters ( for TMJ or grinding of teeth), platysma bands ( for an instant neck lift), underarms ( for excessive sweating) in people 18 to 65 years of age for a short period of time (temporary).. Botox Cosmetic is administered by a trained and certified professional as a simple, nonsurgical treatment that is injected directly into the muscles. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form between the brows.. ...

Results: Overall 446 flaps had an iD placed for monitoring, predominantly for head and neck reconstruction (n=370) with some for breast (n=54) and extremity (n=22) free flaps. The overwhelming majority were Cook-Swartz Dopplers (n=438) with 8 Flow couplers (Synovis). The Doppler was placed on the artery in 266 patients, the vein in 108 patients, and 72 monitored both the artery and vein. The overall sensitivity and specificity was 100% and 91.1% respectively. Subgroup analysis demonstrated significantly greater specificity for monitoring the artery than the vein (94.2% vs. 83.0%, p=0.004), but no benefit to monitoring both the artery and vein (p=0.26). Venous monitoring was significantly associated with a takeback (OR: 3.17, CI: 1.70-5.91; p=0.0003). There was a trend towards higher specificity with the Cook-Swarz Doppler (p=0.09). 284 flaps had a monitoring segment along with iD which significantly increased specificity (OR: 17.71, CI: 3.39-92.23; p=0.0006). Overall, 58 flaps (13%) required a ...

A horizontal ellipse is drawn on the skin using a skin marker, with the main axis aligned with the submental crease. Between 3.6 ml and 5.4 ml of local anaesthetic is infiltrated subcutaneously into the demarcated area. Next, using a scalpel, an incision is made in the demarcated area to eliminate the skin and subcutaneous tissue and reach the plane of the platysma muscle. After this, a skin marker is used to mark the muscular tissue of the platysma with two anterior-base triangles. A third posterior-base triangle is formed between the two that have already been described. This central triangle of the platysma muscle is resected and eliminated ( Fig. 2 ). Next, the central part of the area is dissected in search of the bone plane of the edge of the mandible. A 4-mm incision is made on the mentalis muscle above its lower insertion, leaving sufficient remaining muscle tissue so that they can be repositioned and sutured after having been detached. The inferior border of the mandible is exposed and ...

Hypopharyngeal cancer is a throat cancer that forms in the hypopharynx (lower part of the throat). Most hypopharyngeal cancers are squamous cell carcinomas, arising from the cells lining the inside of the throat. Hypopharyngeal cancer often occurs in pockets on either side of the hypopharynx (called the piriform sinuses). The symptoms and treatment options for hypopharyngeal cancer depend on the location of the cancer as well as several other factors such as, how large it is, and how far it has spread.. ...
There are different types of treatment for patients with hypopharyngeal cancer.. Different types of treatment are available for patients with hypopharyngeal cancer. Some treatments are standard (the currently used treatment), and some are being tested in clinical trials. A treatment clinical trial is a research study meant to help improve current treatments or obtain information on new treatments for patients with cancer. When clinical trials show that a new treatment is better than the standard treatment, the new treatment may become the standard treatment. Patients may want to think about taking part in a clinical trial. Some clinical trials are open only to patients who have not started treatment.. Three types of standard treatment are used:. Surgery.

We are aware that the postoperative monitoring of free flaps in head and neck reconstruction is more difficult than with similar reconstruction in the extremities.44 The jejunal free flap is a buried flap and monitoring in the postoperative period is therefore difficult. Vascular compromise of this flap may be caused by either intraluminal thrombosis secondary to problems with the microsurgical technique or thrombosis secondary to external compression from edema, hematoma, or a tight skin closure. Kinking of the vascular pedicle or a surrounding neck infection may contribute to loss of the jejunal transfer. In our opinion, fiberoptic endoscopy remains the best method for evaluation of the jejunal segment. Several authors have used a window between the neck sutures to permit a direct view of the flap.45,46 Complications Complications associated with free jejunal transplant involve those resulting from harvesting of the graft as well as placement of the graft and the microanastomoses. ...

We found a possible association between exposure to formaldehyde and hypopharyngeal cancer, with a dose-response pattern for probability of exposure. After excluding subjects with a low probability of exposure, the risk increased with duration and cumulative level of exposure.. Although some studies of nasopharyngeal cancer have found associations with exposure to formaldehyde,30 31 most studies of oropharyngeal and hypopharyngeal cancers have not detected such an association.32-36 However, many studies consider cancers of the hypopharynx together with those of the oropharynx and even the oral cavity; such a procedure prevents direct comparisons with our data.. No association was found between formaldehyde and laryngeal cancer, although there was an indication of an increased risk among heavy drinkers. However, no dose-response pattern was found, nor was support for an association provided by the analysis that excluded subjects with a low probability of exposure. Although Berrino et al 37 found ...
