Silicone elastomer, a ubiquitous biomaterial and main constituent of breast implants, has been used for breast augmentation and reconstruction for over 50 years. Breast implants have direct local and purported systemic effects on normal tissue homeostasis dictated by the chemical and physical presence of the implant.
The biocompatibility of the polysiloxane breast implant has been studied moderately. The aging of these implants due to lipid penetration and the release of polymerization impurities, such as Platine or octamethylcyclotetrasiloxane (named D4), has already been documented. Since these studies, manufacturing procedures have been improved; thus, the security of breast implants has also improved. Although polymerization and the choice of monomer influence the shell properties, few studies have compared these to...
Capsular contracture around breast implants is a severe and unpredictable complication experienced by up to 50 percent of patients after breast augmentation and reconstruction, and represents a major cause leading to reoperation. Several lines of evidence point to the involvement of subclinical infections and of bacterial biofilm formation.
Onychotillomania is a nail-picking disorder characterized by nail dystrophy and abnormal morphology of the nail plate, nail bed, and periungual skin.
Flap-based breast reconstruction demands greater operative labor and offers superior patient reported outcomes compared to implants. However, implants continue to outpace flaps, with some suggesting inadequate remuneration as one barrier. This study aims to characterize market variation in the ratio of implants to flaps and assess correlation with physician payments.
Considerable efforts have been devoted so far to improve salvage procedures of infected breast implants in absence of defined guidelines or validated clinical protocols. Within a cohort of prospectively recruited patients who underwent breast reconstruction, we performed a retrospective review of proven implant infections in order to describe factors contributing to management success.
Alterations of the nail unit in children may be congenital or acquired, may be an isolated finding or part of a systemic problem or a syndrome. In this article we describe the most common childhood nail changes and underscore some important clinical clues that should motivate further investigations. Moreover we give a brief overview of the management of these nail pathologies.
Aesthetic breast implant augmentation surgery is the most popular plastic surgery worldwide. Many women choose to receive breast implants during their reproductive ages, although the long-term effects are still controversial. Research aim: We conducted a meta-analysis to assess the influence of aesthetic breast augmentation on breastfeeding. We also compared the exclusive breastfeeding rates of periareolar versus inframammary incision.
Nail changes are present in about 50% of psoriasis patients and tend to be refractory to conventional treatments. Pulsed dye laser has emerged as an alternative therapy. Our aim is to evaluate the efficacy of pulsed dye laser in nail psoriasis and the impact of treatment on quality of life. Fourteen patients were treated in monthly sessions for three months. The outcome assesment was made by the Nail Psoriasis Severity Index (NAPSI). The median improvement in the scores of the overall NAPSI, nail bed NAPSI,...
To date, 359 cases of anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) in women with breast implants (breast implant-associated ALCL [BIA-ALCL]) worldwide have been reported among more than 10 million patients who have received implants, but health care authorities suspect this is a possible underestimation, and the limited number of cases makes it difficult to clarify its cause. The General Directorate of Medical Devices and Pharmaceutical Services of the Italian Ministry of Health has examined and studied the Italia...
No previous studies have been conducted to determine the normal number of nail matrix melanocytes in Latin American individuals. The objective of this work was to determine the number of melanocytes per linear millimeter present in the nail matrix and the nail bed in samples obtained from Colombian individuals.
The postoperative pain associated with breast augmentation is a top concern of most patients and can affect the decision on surgery.
Breast reconstruction using implants is still the main breast reconstruction technique worldwide. Current debate within implant-based breast reconstruction is whether to perform a 1-stage (direct implant) or 2-stage (tissue expander/implant) reconstruction. Volume differences between a woman's native breast and changes in volume after breast reconstruction might be an important factor for a patient's choice between these types of reconstruction. Three-dimensional imaging facilitates objective breast volume ...
In the last decade, several studies have reported that short implants achieve excellent results with a 2-stage technique. According to the literature, short dental implants have often been used for the replacement of teeth.
Early breast cancer follow-up guidelines for patients who underwent surgery suggest a regular and accurate clinical examination of the breast area, for an early identification of cutaneous or subcutaneous breast cancer relapse. Nonetheless, breast skin lesions arising in patients treated with mastectomy for breast cancer can be caused by several diseases. A series of diagnostic hypotheses should be considered, not only focusing on cutaneous metastasis, but also on dermatologic and systemic diseases.
Nail damage is common amongst patients receiving chemotherapy causing disfigurement and pain. This investigation evaluated whether a topical balm containing steam-extracted, bioactive polyphenolic-rich herbal oils blended with organic waxes could protect the nails via their reported anti-inflammatory, analgesic, anti-oxidant and anti-microbial properties.
Bacterial colonization of spinal implants may cause severe complications in patients with early-onset scoliosis. Correct diagnosis and detection of microbiologic formation is crucial to prevent delayed infections caused by bacterial colonization. The purposes of this study were to estimate the rate and risk factors of colonization of vertical expandable prosthetic titanium rib (VEPTR) implants in children and to compare the different methods for detecting microbiologic formation on the spinal implants.
The increased use of ultraviolet (UV) nail lamps in recent years has generated safety concerns of this device. A UV nail lamp is a source of artificial UVA radiation, often used to dry, harden, and cure the nails at home and in the salon. UVA radiation is a known to be mutagenic and can cause damage to the DNA, resulting in cutaneous malignancy. Currently, there are only a few studies that have evaluated UV nail lamp irradiation and its potential carcinogenic risk. We review the literature on UV nail lamps,...
Research regarding quality of life (QoL) among women who underwent breast aesthetic surgery is expanding. A comparative, anonymous study between two main breast aesthetic procedures is needed.
Onychomycosis is a fungal nail infection caused by dermatophytes, non-dermatophytes, and yeast and is the most common nail disorder seen in clinical practice. It is an important problem, as it may cause local pain, paresthesias, difficulties performing activities of daily life, and impair social interactions. In the following continuing medical education manuscript, we review the epidemiology, risk factors, and clinical presentation of onychomycosis and demonstrate current and emerging diagnostic strategies...
The effect of liquid hog manure (LHM) and commercial fertilizer on NO-N leaching was measured for 2 yr in a long-term manure experiment on a loamy sand soil at Carberry, MB. The field experiment, sown to barley ( L.) and wheat ( L.), comprised six treatments including two rates of LHM (28, 084 and 56,168 L ha [2500 and 5000 gal acre, abbreviated LHM-2500 and LHM-5000, respectively]), two rates of fertilizer (abbreviated F-2500 and F-5000) corresponding approximately to available N in LHM-2500 and LHM-5000, ...
Augmentation mammoplasty is the most common aesthetic procedure. Textured implants control implant position and have improved capsular contracture rates; however, the impact of texturing on longevity and clinical findings at explantation is unclear.
