Hand surgery fellowship programs in the United States are predominately sponsored by departments or divisions of orthopaedic surgery or plastic surgery. This study compares the operative experiences of hand surgery fellows graduating from orthopaedic or plastic surgery hand surgery fellowships.
Surgery quality initiatives improve clinical outcomes in cardiac and general surgery. No mature thoracic surgery (TS) regional effort has been described.
Laparoscopic surgery is less invasive than open surgery and is now common in various medical fields. However, laparoscopic surgery is more difficult than open surgery and often requires additional time for the operator to achieve mastery. Therefore, we investigated the use of assistive technology for uniform laparoscopic surgery.
Facial feminization surgery was pioneered in the 1980s to provide options for trans women who were having difficulty with their outward appearance. This process presented a novel application of craniofacial surgery at the time. This text outlines the basic differences between male and female facial morphology, as well as the procedures we use to feminize the face.
The recently increased minimum aesthetic surgery requirements set by the Plastic Surgery Residency Review Committee of the ACGME highlight the importance of aesthetic surgery training for plastic surgery residents. Participation in resident aesthetic surgery clinics has become an important tool to achieve this goal. Yet, there is little literature on the current structure of these clinics.
The objective of this study was to document trends in the performance of open arterial vascular surgery procedures (OAVP) by general surgery residents (GSR).
The aim of the study was to evaluate the efficiency and safety of overlapping surgery (OS) at a training institution by comparing it with nonoverlapping surgery (NO) with respect to operative time, mortality, readmissions, and complications.
While bariatric surgery leads to significant prevention and improvement of type 2 diabetes, patients may rarely develop diabetes after bariatric surgery. The aim of this study was to determine the incidence and the characteristic of new-onset diabetes after bariatric surgery over a 17-year period at our institution.
Vitreoretinal (VR) surgery is the third most common intraocular surgery after refractive and cataract surgery. The impact of statin therapy on VR surgery outcomes remains unclear, despite a potentially beneficial effect. We explored the association of preoperative statin therapy and the need for revitrectomy after primary vitrectomy.
While plastic surgeons and plastic surgery residents aspire to leadership in academic plastic surgery, there is no well-established pathway.
Dr. Gordon F. Murray was the 44 president of the Society of Thoracic Surgeons and a distinguished member of this profession. He had a major influence on surgery as both Chief of the Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery and Chairman of the Department of Surgery at West Virginia University. An advocate of resident education, he served on the American Board of Thoracic Surgery and the Residency Review Committee, and was President of the Thoracic Surgery Directors Association.

Cardiothoracic surgery is one of the more highly litigated medical specialties. The incidence and outcomes of federal cases related to cardiac surgery have not been previously explored.
Surgical scar length is a common concern among patients undergoing Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS).
Chest wall masculinization by means of mastectomy is an important gender affirming surgery for transmasculine and non-binary patients. Limited data exist comparing commonly used techniques in masculinizing top surgery, and most are single institution studies.
In recent years, the use of del Nido (DN) cardioplegia has been reported in single-valve surgery or isolated coronary artery bypass surgery with acceptable outcomes. The reports of its use in more complex adult cardiac procedures, however, have been scarce.
Immunosuppression is often considered as an indication for antibiotic prophylaxis to prevent surgical site infections (SSI) while performing skin surgery. However, the data on the risk of developing SSI after dermatologic surgery in immunosuppressed patients are limited.
Correction of severe malocclusions with skeletal discrepancies requires orthodontic treatment in combination with orthognathic surgery. Even though conventional orthognathic surgery (COS) is a common and well-accepted approach its influence on the signs and symptoms of temporomandibular disorders (TMDs) is still debated. Recently with the introduction of surgery first approach, a different timing for the management of dentoskeletal imbalances has been proposed. The present study is aimed at assessing the re...
Bariatric surgery has been an alternative when conservative methods of weight loss fail. Patients undergoing bariatric surgery have an increased risk of up to 6.5% of problems related to alcohol.
The National Bariatric Surgery Registry (NBSR) is the largest bespoke database in the field in the United Kingdom.
Precision medicine is targeted towards improving the effectiveness of treatment, reducing the side effects of drugs and reducing medical costs. The application of precision surgery for obesity is a new concept that involves 2 stages: the first stage is to attain a precise obesity surgery, and the second stage is to achieve individualized obese gene therapy. In this article, we discuss the value of precision surgery for obesity, its stages and its future application to improve obesity surgery. Due to recent ...
The true benefits of scoliosis surgery in cerebral palsy (CP) remain uncertain. Our aims were to determine the benefits of spinal fusion according to health-related quality of life (HRQoL) improvement at long-term follow-up and to explore the effect of surgery-related complications on clinical outcomes.
Plastic surgery in teenagers has become popular in past decades due to an increase in self-awareness and desire to "fit in" with their peers. In 2016, over 229,551 cosmetic procedures were performed in patients who are under the age of 19 years old .

In percutaneous cervical nucleoplasty (PCN) a portion of the nucleus tissue is ablated using the Coblation technique. Re-surgery is an important factor for the clinical outcome. However, the rate of subsequent surgery after PCN is still unknown. The aim of this study was to investigate the frequency of an additional open surgery after PCN in a retrospective of more than ten years.
