BACKGROUND Complication rates after spinal surgery are high, in part because of surgical advancements that have made procedures available to a broader range of medically complicated patients. The high rates of infection, hematoma, and dehiscence resulting in open wounds after spinal surgery often warrant plastic surgery involvement. In this study, we aim to examine the effects of preoperative and operative risk factors on complication rates, reoperation rates, and hospital length of stay after f...

SUMMARY Radiation-induced changes in skin and soft tissue result in significant cosmetic and functional impairment with subsequent decrease in quality of life. Fat grafting has emerged as a therapy for radiation-induced soft-tissue injury, and this narrative review aims to evaluate the current clinical evidence regarding its efficacy. A review was conducted to examine the current clinical evidence of fat grafting as a therapy for radiation-induced injury to the skin and soft tissue and to outlin...

Introduction There is often a need for a simple means of predicting hematocrit (Hct) following blood loss, administration of intravenous fluids, or fluid shifts. The aim of this study is to introduce a nomogram for the rapid prediction of blood volume and packed red cell volume appropriate for a given patient's body weight and Hct in both the pediatric and adult populations. Methods A nomogram for prediction of Hct was created using the following variables: 1) blood volume determined from bodywe...

Background: Reduction mammaplasty was shown to ameliorate physical and psychological problems in adolescents suffering from macromastia. However, benefits of the Wise compared to the vertical incision pattern have not yet been established in this population. The aim of this study is to compare the outcomes of these 2 techniques in adolescents undergoing reduction mammaplasty. Methods: A retrospective study of adolescents undergoing breast reduction by a single surgeon between 2011 and 2017 was c...

BACKGROUND: Gender disparities in academic plastic surgery are known; however, recently, professional societies have endorsed a culture of gender diversification. This study aims to evaluate the effects of these changes at faculty and leadership positions. METHODS: A cross-sectional study was conducted in June of 2018 to evaluate gender representation among U.S. academic plastic surgery faculty, and compare career qualifications, years of experience, and faculty positions. RESULTS: A total of 93...

: With current changes in training requirements, it is important to understand the venues in the United States for a general surgery (GS) and plastic surgery (PS) resident interested in pursuing a burn surgery career. The study aims to evaluate the pathways to a career in burn surgery and the current state of leadership. A cross-sectional study was conducted between August and September 2017. A 12-question survey was sent to all burn unit directors in the United States, asking about their backgr...

Abstract Cardiolipin (CL) is a mitochondria-specific phospholipid that is central to maintenance and regulation of mitochondrial bioenergetic and metabolic functions. CL molecular species display great tissue variation with brain exhibiting a distinct, highly diverse CL population. We recently showed that the appearance of unique brain-type CLs in plasma could serve as a brain-specific marker of mitochondrial/tissue injury in patients after cardiac arrest. Mitochondrial dysfunction has been incr...

Objectives:Brain mitochondrial dysfunction limits neurologic recovery after cardiac arrest. Brain polyunsaturated cardiolipins, mitochondria-unique and functionally essential phospholipids, have unprecedented diversification. Since brain cardiolipins are not present in plasma normally, we hypothesiz
