Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A hair-containing cyst or sinus, occurring chiefly in the coccygeal region.
Endonucleases that remove 5' DNA sequences from a DNA structure called a DNA flap. The DNA flap structure occurs in double-stranded DNA containing a single-stranded break where the 5' portion of the downstream strand is too long and overlaps the 3' end of the upstream strand. Flap endonucleases cleave the downstream strand of the overlap flap structure precisely after the first base-paired nucleotide, creating a ligatable nick.
Keratomileusis, Laser In Situ
A surgical procedure to correct MYOPIA by CORNEAL STROMA subtraction. It involves the use of a microkeratome to make a lamellar dissection of the CORNEA creating a flap with intact CORNEAL EPITHELIUM. After the flap is lifted, the underlying midstroma is reshaped with an EXCIMER LASER and the flap is returned to its original position.
Keratectomy, Subepithelial, Laser-assisted
A surgical technique to correct REFRACTIVE ERRORS of the EYE, such as MYOPIA and ASTIGMATISM. In this method, a flap of CORNEAL EPITHELIUM is created by exposure of the area to dilute alcohol. The flap is lifted and then replaced after laser ablation of the subepithelial CORNEA.
Air-filled spaces located within the bones around the NASAL CAVITY. They are extensions of the nasal cavity and lined by the ciliated NASAL MUCOSA. Each sinus is named for the cranial bone in which it is located, such as the ETHMOID SINUS; the FRONTAL SINUS; the MAXILLARY SINUS; and the SPHENOID SINUS.
A pilonidal sinus is a cyst or abscess near or on the natal cleft of the buttocks that often contains hair and skin debris. The condition is common and requires surgery to be cured. Severa...
The trial compares excision in the midline at surgery for pilonidal disease versus excision lateral of the midline (Karydakis operation) at surgery for pilonidal disease by randomly alloca...
The investigators think, that the treatment of Sinus pilonidalis with excision and covering of the defect with a Limberg-flap is a very good treatment option. The investigators are introdu...
The purpose of the study is to gain experience of safety and efficacy with MD05 in man in alveolar bone regeneration.
This study comprises a prospective study of 40 patients with transphincteric anal fistula. The patients were classified into two groups: Group I: Fistulectomy, closure of internal sphincte...
PURPOSE: Different surgical techniques for pilonidal disease have been described in the literature. In this study, our aim was to evaluate the influence of routine cavity drainage in the Karydakis fla...
PURPOSE: Our aim was to determine the most effective surgical procedure for treatment of pilonidal disease, by comparing different surgical techniques. METHODS: A total of 354 patients who underwent o...
A 39-year-old otherwise healthy barber presented to our clinic complaining of frequent periods of swelling and purulent discharge in his second and third right web spaces. An excision was performed af...
BACKGROUND: Treatment of pilonidal sinus disease is controversial. Many claim policy of marsupialisation and healing by secondary intention. This is demanding in terms of nursing care and time lost fr...
PURPOSE: Pilonidal sinus disease (PSD) is usually seen on the sacrococcygeal region in adolescent patients. The current study analyzed the outcome of the rhomboid excision and the Limberg flap procedu...
