portada - Burns - Vol. 40; No 6 (2014)La elastografía de ondas de corte (SWE) es una tecnología basada en ultrasonido que puede proporcionar mediciones confiables (velocidad) de la rigidez de la cicatriz. El objetivo de esta investigación fue evaluar la validez concurrente de utilizar tanto la velocidad medida como la diferencia de velocidad calculada entre las cicatrices y los controles emparejados, además de evaluar los factores potenciales del paciente que pueden influir en la interpretación de las medidas.

portada - Aesthetic Plastic Surgery - Vol. 41; No. 2 (2017)Breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL) is an uncommon T-cell, CD-30+/ALK lymphoma. Late (9 years) periprosthetic fluid (seroma) is the most common presentation (90% of the cases). A combination of textured breast implant, bacterial contamination, and genetic predisposition seems to be necessary for BIA-ALCL to occur. There are 35 million patients with implants in the world, and at the present moment, 573 cases of BIA-ALCL have been reported.

portada - PRS - Vol. 132; No. 2 (2013)The link between breast implants and systemic disease has been reported since the 1960s. Although many studies have looked at either supporting or refuting its existence, the issue still persists and has now been labeled “breast implant illness.” The rise of patient advocacy and communication through social media has led to an increasing number of presentations to plastic surgeons. This article summarizes the history of breast implants and systemic disease, critically analyzes the literature (and any associated deficiencies), and suggests a way forward through systematic scientific study.

portada - PRS - Vol. 132; No. 2 (2013)Hyperpigmentation following ultraviolet irradiation has cosmetic concerns. Botulinum toxin type A can favorably affect skin pigmentation. However, the mechanism of skin pigmentation is unclear.
Recent clinical reports have suggested favorable effects of botulinum toxin type A on skin pigmentation. In one study, three patients treated with repeated botulinum toxin type A injection developed porcelain discoloration of the periocular skin.
