    Title Fetal Cleft Lip and Palate Detection by Three-dimensional Ultrasonography.
    Date April 2001
    Journal Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology : the Official Journal of the International Society of Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology

    OBJECTIVES: To demonstrate a standardized approach for the evaluation of cleft lip and palate by three-dimensional (3D) ultrasonography. DESIGN: This was a retrospective study of seven fetuses with confirmed facial cleft anomalies. Post-natal findings were compared to a blinded review of 3D volume data from abnormal fetuses with seven other normal fetuses that were matched for gestational age. Upper lip integrity was examined by 3D multiplanar imaging. Sequential axial views were used to evaluate the maxillary tooth-bearing alveolar ridge contour and anterior tooth socket alignment. Alveolar ridge disruption suggested cleft palate. Premaxillary protrusion, either by multiplanar imaging or surface rendering, indicated bilateral cleft lip and palate. RESULTS: Post-natal findings confirmed bilateral cleft lip and palate (four cases), unilateral cleft lip and palate (one case), and unilateral cleft lip (two cases). Multiplanar review identified all three fetuses with unilateral cleft lip, three of four fetuses with bilateral cleft lip, one fetus with unilateral cleft palate, and three of four fetuses with bilateral cleft palate. Surface rendering correctly identified all cleft lips, with the exception of one fetus, who was thought to have a unilateral cleft lip and palate, despite the actual presence of a bilateral lesion. One cleft palate defect was directly visualized by 3D surface rendering. No false-positives occurred. CONCLUSION: Interactive review of standardized 3D multiplanar images allows one to evaluate labial defects, abnormalities of the maxillary tooth-bearing alveolar ridge, and presence of premaxillary protrusion for detecting cleft lip and palate anomalies. Surface rendering may increase diagnostic confidence for normal or abnormal studies. This technology provides an array of visualization tools that may improve the prenatal characterization of facial clefts, particularly of the palate.

    Title Prospective Analysis of Psychosocial Outcomes in Breast Reconstruction: One-year Postoperative Results from the Michigan Breast Reconstruction Outcome Study.
    Date October 2000
    Journal Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery

    In the past decade, changing attitudes toward breast reconstruction among both patients and providers have led a growing number of women to seek breast reconstruction after mastectomy. Although investigators have documented the psychological, social, emotional, and functional benefits of breast reconstruction, little research has evaluated the effects of procedure choice on these outcomes. The current study prospectively evaluated and compared psychosocial outcomes for three common options for mastectomy reconstruction: tissue expander/implant, pedicle TRAM, and free TRAM techniques. In a prospective cohort design, patients undergoing postmastectomy reconstruction for the first time with expander/implant, pedicle TRAM, or free TRAM procedures were recruited from 12 centers and 23 plastic surgeons in the United States and Canada. Before reconstruction and at 1 year after reconstruction, patients were evaluated by a battery of questionnaires consisting of both generic and condition-specific surveys. Outcomes assessed included emotional well-being, vitality, general mental health, social functioning, functional well-being, social well-being, and body image. Baseline (preoperative) scores and the change in scores (the difference between postoperative and preoperative scores) were compared across procedure types using t tests and analysis of covariance. Preoperative and 1-year postoperative surveys were obtained from 273 patients. Procedure type was reported in 250 patients, of whom 56 received implant reconstructions, 128 pedicle TRAM flaps, and 66 free TRAM flaps. A total of 161 immediate and 89 delayed reconstructions were performed. Among women receiving immediate reconstruction, significant improvements were observed in all psychosocial variables except body image. However, no significant effects of procedure type on these changes over time existed. Similarly, delayed reconstruction patients had significant increases in emotional well-being, vitality, general mental health, functional well-being, and body image. Although the choice of reconstructive technique did not significantly impact most of these outcomes, significant differences existed among procedure types for three psychosocial subscales. Patients undergoing delayed expander/implant reconstructions reported greater improvements in vitality and social well-being relative to women receiving delayed TRAM procedures. By contrast, delayed TRAM patients noted significantly greater gains in body image compared with women choosing delayed expander-implant reconstruction. The authors conclude that both immediate and delayed breast reconstructions provide substantial psychosocial benefits for mastectomy patients. Although the choice of reconstructive procedure does not seem to significantly affect improvements in psychosocial status with immediate reconstruction, our data suggest that procedure type does have a significant effect on gains in vitality and body image for women undergoing delayed reconstruction.

    Title Treatment Outcome with Radiation Therapy After Breast Augmentation or Reconstruction in Patients with Primary Breast Carcinoma.
    Date April 1998
    Journal Cancer

    BACKGROUND: Analyses were performed to determine local control and cosmetic outcome of breast carcinoma patients with prosthetically augmented or reconstructed breasts who had received radiation therapy (RT). METHODS: Twenty-one newly diagnosed breast carcinoma patients with prosthetically augmented or reconstructed breasts were treated with external beam RT. All patients received whole breast RT (median dose, 50.4 gray [Gy]) and 19 were boosted to a median dose of 60.4 Gy. A median dose of 50.4 Gy was delivered to the regional lymph nodes in 12 patients. Tissue equivalent bolus material was used in six patients. Seventeen patients received adjuvant systemic therapy. Cosmetic results were evaluated at 3-6-month intervals. RESULTS: With a median follow-up of 32 months, good/excellent cosmetic results were observed in 71% of patients (100% in those with augmented breasts and 54% in those with reconstructed breasts). Four patients (19%) with fair/poor cosmetic outcomes required implant removal and/or revision. Multiple clinical and treatment-related factors were analyzed for their impact on cosmetic outcome. A worsened cosmetic result was observed with increasing stage (P = 0.076), breast reconstruction (vs. augmentation) (P = 0.030), and bolus application (P = 0.016). All patients with fair/poor cosmetic outcomes had time intervals from implant insertion to RT ranging from 53-213 days. Two patients developed an isolated local recurrence within the augmented breast. CONCLUSIONS: Patients with prosthetically augmented breasts can undergo RT and expect good/excellent cosmetic results. Patients with reconstructed breasts are at a significantly greater risk for cosmetic failure. This risk may be related to the higher percentage of patients with advanced disease, those who received bolus application, and those who received earlier delivery of RT (after the cosmetic procedure) in reconstructed breasts.

    Title Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation for the Circulatory Support of Children After Repair of Congenital Heart Disease.
    Date November 1990
    Journal The Journal of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery

    We have treated 39 infants and children with congenital heart disease with extracorporeal membrane oxygenation during the past 5 years. Thirty-six were treated for low cardiac output or pulmonary vasoreactive crisis after repair of congenital heart defects. Twenty-two (61%) survived. Most patients were cannulated from the neck via the right internal jugular vein and the right common carotid artery. Six patients were cannulated from the chest, including three who had separate drainage of the left side of the heart with a left atrial cannula. Two of these patients survived and were the only survivors of the nine patients cannulated in the operating room because they could not be weaned from cardiopulmonary bypass after open cardiac operations. We also reviewed 312 patients (the predictor study series) having open cardiac operations before the availability of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation; 27 of these patients died. Data were collected at 1 and 8 hours postoperatively to determine if any parameters might predict early mortality. With these parameters used as criteria, patients who went on extracorporeal membrane oxygenation were as sick as those who died before extracorporeal membrane oxygenation was available. The most common complication was bleeding related to heparinization. The mean transfusion requirement in survivors was 1.50 +/- 1.13 ml/kg/hr, 5.63 +/- 7.0 ml/kg/hr in the nonsurvivors, and 7.46 +/- 8.29 ml/kg/hr in those cannulated in the operating room because they could not be weaned from bypass. Four children had intracranial hemorrhage, and two of them died. There was one late death. Nine of the 22 survivors are entirely normal. All survivors who do not have Down's syndrome are considered to have normal central nervous system function. We conclude that extracorporeal membrane oxygenation can improve survival in patients with both pulmonary artery hypertension and low cardiac output after operations for congenital heart disease.

    Title Prolonged Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation in Sheep with a Hollow-fiber Oxygenator and a Centrifugal Pump.
    Date January 1989
    Journal Asaio Transactions / American Society for Artificial Internal Organs

    ECMO with a roller-pump employs two potentially thrombogenic devices: the servoregulator bladder and heat exchanger. To eliminate these we used an 0.8 m2 Capiox II hollow-fiber oxygenator ventilated with warmed humidified oxygen and a Bio-Medicus centrifugal pump with a 1/4 inch head at a flow of 250 cc/min in six sheep during 96 hr of ECMO each. Oxygenator performance and plasma Hgb were determined, as were the volume, electrolyte, and protein content of fluid accumulating in the gas phase of the oxygenator. Mean oxygen transfer was 15.78 +/- 3.15 ml/min, and mean differences in PaO2 between blood entering and leaving the oxygenator was 360 +/- 49 mmHg. Mean plasma Hgb was 24.7 +/- 12.8 mg/dl. Fluid in the gas phase of the oxygenator was less than 75 ml/day and contained no albumin, protein, sodium, potassium, or chloride. Centrifugal pumps have been associated with hemolysis at low flows, but this may have been due to the simultaneous use of silastic membrane oxygenators that have high resistance. Hollow-fiber oxygenators have been associated with early failure of gas exchange and fluid accumulation in the gas phase. This may have been due to ventilation with dry gas. We conclude that a hollow-fiber oxygenator and a centrifugal pump can provide excellent gas exchange, acceptable hemolysis, and little fluid loss.
