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.
Femoral lengthening is performed by distraction osteogenesis via lengthening over a nail (LON) or by using a magnetic lengthening nail (MLN). MLN avoids the complications of external fixation while providing accurate and easily controlled lengthening. However, the increased cost of implants has led many to question whether MLN is cost-effective compared with LON.
History A 57-year-old woman presented with right breast swelling and enlargement and a palpable mass in the right lower inner breast. There was no history of fever, trauma, skin redness, or nipple discharge. The patient had a history of breast augmentation, with retropectoral silicone implants placed 2.5 years ago. Screening mammography (images not shown) 7 months prior revealed bilateral breast implants but no other abnormality. Mammography and US of the right breast were performed at the initial evaluatio...
Breast implants have been shadowed in controversy since their introduction to the market; however, they represent a multi-million dollar industry and play a critical role both for cosmetic augmentation and enhancement and for reconstruction following treatment for cancer. With advancements in technology, breast implants have evolved tremendously over the years. Further, with the cessation of the FDA implemented moratorium on silicone, the use of silicone implants has grown exponentially over the years. Nove...
Women with breast implants may have concerns about their ability to successfully breastfeed. The Breast Implant Follow-up Study (BIFS-001) is a large, 10-year observational study evaluating the performance and safety of Natrelle ® round silicone-gel filled breast implants.
Retronychia is a recently described disorder caused by ingrowth of the proximal nail plate into the proximal nail fold. It is suspected when there is persistent paronychia, particularly in the setting of trauma. This disease is probably underdiagnosed due to limited knowledge among dermatologists and the presence of incomplete clinical forms. Nail plate avulsion is the diagnostic and curative procedure of choice, despite reports of relapse.
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.
The engineering of breast implants for both augmentation and reconstruction is centered on facilitating optimal aesthetic results pleasing to the patient, while minimizing both short- and long-term complications. Some of the key individual design elements that have been the primary focus over time have included gel cohesivity, shell thickness, shell surface, and implant gel fill. A review of these separate elements points to the potential benefits of increased focus on a combined overall performance perspec...
The hypoglossal nerve stimulator (HGNS) is an effective treatment for obstructive sleep apnea in qualified patients. The implantation is typically performed without direct visualization or image guidance. A surgical approach utilizing ultrasound guidance has proved useful for patients with silicone breast implants, which may be at risk of rupture during insertion of the device. This surgical modification expands the population that can benefit from HGNS to now include patients with breast implants.
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.
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.
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,...
Honey bees (Apis mellifera) are effective foragers for floral and extra-floral sources of sugars and as a result may easily be exposed to toxicants in the environment, such as pesticides. Toxic sugar baits (TSB) or insecticide-laced baits are designed for insect vector management but may be a danger to foraging honey bees and their hives. During a mosquito movement study at a zoological institution, nonflowering foliage surrounding the zoo was marked with sugar solution dyed with over the counter food-color...
