Several methods for auricular cartilage engineering use tissue engineering techniques. However, an ideal method for engineering auricular cartilage has not been reported. To address this issue, we developed a strategy to engineer auricular cartilage using silk fibroin (SF) and polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) hydrogel. We constructed different hydrogels with various ratios of SF and PVA by using salt leaching, silicone mold casting, and freeze-thawing methods. We characterized each of the hydrogels in terms of the swelling ratio, tensile strength, pore size, thermal properties, morphologies, and chemical properties. Based on the cell viability results, we found a blended hydrogel composed of 50% PVA and 50% SF (P50/S50) to be the best hydrogel among the fabricated hydrogels. An intact 3D ear-shaped auricular cartilage formed six weeks after the subcutaneous implantation of a chondrocyte-seeded 3D ear-shaped P50/S50 hydrogel in rats. We observed mature cartilage with a typical lacunar structure both in ...
It is key for successful auricular (AUR) cartilage tissue-engineering (TE) to ensure that the engineered cartilage mimics the mechanics of the native tissue. This study provides a spatial map of the mechanical and biochemical properties of human auricular cartilage, thus establishing a benchmark for the evaluation of functional competency in AUR cartilage TE. Stress-relaxation indentation (instantaneous modulus, Ein; maximum stress, σmax; equilibrium modulus, Eeq; relaxation half-life time, t1/2; thickness, h) and biochemical parameters (content of DNA; sulfated-glycosaminoglycan, sGAG; hydroxyproline, HYP; elastin, ELN) of fresh human AUR cartilage were evaluated. Samples were categorized into age groups and according to their harvesting region in the human auricle (for AUR cartilage only). AUR cartilage displayed significantly lower Ein, σmax, Eeq, sGAG content; and significantly higher t1/2, and DNA content than NAS cartilage. Large amounts of ELN were measured in AUR cartilage (,15% ELN ...
Along with reconstructing the lip and nose the childs palate will be repaired as well. The palates function is a obtain a separation between the nose and mouth, this is significant when it comes to swallowing and speech. The anterior part, the hard palate, consists of the palatine processes of each maxilla and the palatine bones. Its covered with mucous membrane. The hard palate is a thing horizontal bony plate made up of two bones from the facial skeleton. The bones are the palatine process of the maxilla and the horizontal plate of palatine bone, this palate is also involved in holding the upper teeth. On the anterior portion of the roof of the hard palate are the plicae, irregular ridges in the mucous membrane that help the movement of food backward towards the larynx. The posterior portion, the soft palate, is composed of muscle, mucous membrane, and fat. It terminates with the uvula at the fauces. The soft palate consists of five major muscles that work together to help function the ...
Tissue engineering provides a promising alternative therapy to the complex surgical reconstruction of auricular cartilage by using ear-shaped autologous costal cartilage. Bacterial nanocellulose (BNC) is proposed as a promising scaffold material for auricular cartilage reconstruction, as it exhibits excellent biocompatibility and secures tissue integration. Thus, this study evaluates a novel bilay ...
Perichondritis is inflammation of the perichondrium, a layer of connective tissue which surrounds cartilage. A common form, auricular perichondritis (perichondritis auriculae) involves infection of the pinna due to infection of traumatic or surgical wound or the spread of inflammation into depth. It may lead to severe deformation of the pinna if not treated vigorously with IV antibiotics. The causative organism is usually Pseudomonas aeruginosa. A rare form is laryngeal perichondritis (perichondritis laryngis). It develops suddenly due to an injury, virulent organisms or compromised immune status of the host, and also affects cartilage of the larynx. This may result in deformations and stenoses.

If you are planning on getting your ear cartilage pierced or have already done so, the healing time is between 3-12 months. Just like other piercings, the healing time does vary with each individual. It is always best to keep your original stud in long enough for piercing site to be completely healed. If you change your ear cartilage jewelry before your ear is healed, it may lead to infection. If you experience any pain, discharge, or redness around your piercing this could mean you have an infection. Be sure not to touch a new piercing with unwashed hands, and try to clean your ear cartilage piercing daily with a saline solution, or antibacterial soap. ...

Non-specific thermal injury to the epidermis may occur as a result of laser treatment of cutaneous hypervascular malformations (e.g. port wine stains) and other dermatoses. Methods to protect the epidermis from thermal injury include sapphire contact cooling (SCC) and cryogen spray cooling (CSC). Evaluation of the skin thermal response to either cooling method and better understanding of the heat transfer process at the skin surface are essential for further optimization of cooling technique during laser therapy. We present internal temperature measurements in an epoxy resin phantom in response to both SCC and CSC, and use the results in conjunction with a mathematical model to predict the temperature distributions within human skin. Based on our results, a conductive heat transfer process at the skin interface appears to be the primary mechanism for both SCC and CSC. In the case of CSC, film cooling rather than evaporative cooling seems to be the dominant mode during the spurt duration. ...

A cartilage piercing is the second most common ear piercing seen today. Cartilage forms the transparent tissue of the upper part of the ear and is the only area other than lobes that can be legally pierced by a piercing gun. However, cartilage takes longer to hear than earlobes (at least 8-12 weeks) and because there is a limited blood supply to that area some of these piercings never heal properly.. ...

We have devised a technique of two-stage tracheal reconstruction using S-shaped skin flaps and an aural conchal cartilage graft. During the first operation, S-shaped skin flaps were elevated before resection of the trachea. A tracheocutaneous fistula was created at the tracheal defect using S-shaped
This preliminary investigation was conducted in2-month-old rabbits. The perichondrium was strippedaway from the ear cartilage, and raised as a flap. A segmentof the exposed cartilage was then removed and theperichondrial flap was sutured back over the createddefect. The other ear served as a control, but there theresection of cartilage included the covering perichondrium.In the first group there was a progressive regenerationof cartilage originating from the perichondrium; in thecontrol study, no new cartilage developed. The chondrogenicactivity of the perichondrium of the aural cartilageis thus demonstrated and will be further verified insucceeding experiments.. ...

Ive had my tongue done for over 10 years and no problems from it at all. The only piercings that have caused me grief where my lebre piercing because of the flat back it rubbed the gum away on my front teeth but since the gum has rubbed away there has been no Ill effects from it in fact the front teeth are in better condition than the rest because of the rubbing constantly there is never any plaque buildup so I would much rather have no gum there. ( my family has notoriously bad teeth and my lebre has allowed me to keep very clean front teeth even with constant brushing etc.) And lastly my ear cartilage they hurt like a bitch and took 2 years to heal cuz every time I played down or was touched there the cartilage broke again or caused bleeding. After having them for 5 years now Im still getting more piercings. I have 10 so far with very little Ill effects. I think that the most frustrating thing is when you go to the dentist they always complain about smoking or piercings but never my soda ...
I am seeking advice on how to get the proper medical test to diagnose symtoms which started in 1998 and continue to this day. Chief complaints are wide-spread bone pain, changes in teeth enamel causing a thinning and chipping of teeth, and thinning of nose and ear cartilage. Previous tests have been inconclusive, and I strongly believe that after eight years of bone pain and noticeable changes I should have a bone biopsy, which would immediately tell if there is a bone disorder ...

3. Minimal effective duration of impact determination when stimulating auricular points by different frequencies.. Materials and methods of the research. 36 almost healthy volunteers under test and 18 people suffering from overweight and obesity of 1 -2 stages participated in the research. 4 to 20 researches were made with each of subject of the experiment, and electrostimulation of auricular points by different frequencies was carried out in different days in order to eliminate a summation effect.. VHR registration was accomplished with the help of "Orto-Scince" and "Orto-expert" (Russia) development package in the background, during auricular points electrostimulation and 1 - 30 minutes after stimulation was over. Indices during and after stimulation were analyzed with the help of "Orto-expert" program that included evaluation of heart rate indices (mode, mode amplitude, tension index (TI), heart rate, indices of spectral analyses of heart rate) in a sitting position and after rising to feet. ...

Liquid is cooled in a columnar vessel having an inlet and an outlet for the liquid. The cooling is effected by introducing liquid cryogen into the vessel through a pipe. The liquid cryogen vaporizes and crates turbulence in the liquid in the vessel. Perforated plates dampen the turbulence and disengage the vaporized cryogen from the liquid being cooled. Pressurized gas is introduced from an inlet into the liquid beneath the liquid cryogen. This pressurized gas crates turbulence in the region where the cryogen enters the liquid and thus is able to prevent local freezing of the liquid in the mouth of the pipe. The liquid is typically water and the liquid cryogen typically liquid nitrogen.

Background/Purpose: Relapsing polychondritis (RP) is a rare systemic inflammatory disorder and might often be refractory. Therefore, the discovery of more convenient imaging modality than contrast-CT, MRI and FDG-PET/CT would be required on diagnosis and treatment. The objective is to assess the clinical implications of ultrasonography (US) in monitoring disease activity and diagnosis of RP.. Methods: Firstly, auricular chondritis of patients with RP (n=5) were assessed by US before and after treatments. Second, the relationship between US findings and other serum inflammatory markers were evaluated. Moreover, the comparisons of US findings between the auricle of patients with RP (n=5), repeated trauma (n=5) which is similar to auricle of RP, and healthy subjects (n=5) were also assessed.. Results: US of the auricular chondritis before treatment showed low-echoic swollen auricular cartilage with increased power Doppler signals (PDS) in all cases. US findings corresponded to biopsy findings. ...
Objectives: This study aimed to evaluate the techniques used in open structure rhinoplasty operations, together with a presentation of our results and experience. Patients and Methods: The study included 122 patients (64 males 58 females; mean age 27 years; range 17 to 48 years) who underwent open structure rhinoplasty. Of these, 72.9% had primary, 9% had revision surgeries; 18% had traumatic deformities. The mean follow-up period was 18 months (range 3 to 24 months). Results: We did not encounter transcolumellar scar formation or flap necrosis in any of the cases. In five cases (%4), edema and hyperemia were detected in the columellar skin in the early postoperative period. Resorption of the tip graft developed in one (%0.8) of the patients in whom auricular cartilage grafts were used. A year after surgery, one patient (%0.8) presented with granulation tissue formation in the nasal vestibule, secondary to the use of nylon suture material. Axial deviation was seen in the early postoperatiye ...
Many surgical procedures, including laryngotracheal expansion with or without grafting, have been suggested for repairing laryngotracheal stenosis in children, and although a variety of stents have been described, the practice of prolonged stenting continues to diminish. We describe 21 pediatric patients with moderate-to-severe subglottic or tracheal stenosis who had laryngotracheal reconstructions with anterior rib cartilage grafts without stenting or intubation. The patients were between 6 months and 7 years of age at the time of surgery. All patients were extubated in the operating room after the procedure was terminated. One patient required reintubation in the intensive care unit for 48 hours after surgery, and another patient required a tracheotomy. Wound infection occurred in one patient. Most patients were discharged to their homes 3 to 5 days after surgery. We report the indications, technique, results, and complications of laryngotracheal reconstruction using a rib graft without ...
Perichondritis is a condition characterized by pain, swelling and purulent discharge from the external ear, which may progress to a deformity of the pinna. The presence of co-morbidities such as diabetes mellitus may aggravate the situation. The main aetiological agent is Pseudomonas aeruginosa and treatment consists of antibiotics combined with surgical drainage of the ear. We present the case of a diabetic patient with recurrent perichondritis of the pinna treated with hyperbaric oxygen therapy, with successful healing. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy has proved beneficial as adjunctive therapy of lesions in diabetic patients with foot ulcers, acting in the regeneration of intracellular free radicals and promotion of wound-healing factors. Thus, owing to its mechanisms of action, its effect on other injuries such as perichondritis in diabetic patients may be beneficial and lead to improvement ...

While cryogen spray cooling (CSC) can protect skin epidermis from non-specific thermal damage, spray droplets in-flight and the cryogen/frost layer that forms on the skin surface may pose a potential problem for laser light attenuation due to absorption and/or scattering. Employing a hand piece expressly designed for concurrent light and cryogen delivery on skin phantoms, we studied the effect of relative humidity on light transmittance during and after spray cooling. Cryogen spurts were aimed at a microscope glass slide and a deformable agar phantom preheated at 32°C. According to our results, relative humidity plays a very important role in the light transmission during CSC. Light absorption and/or scattering by the spray droplets in-flight and cryogen/frost layer formation at the surface induced light attenuation values of up to 45%. The higher the relative humidity is, the lower the light transmission ...
