Opioid Prescribing Patterns After Micrographic Surgery: A Follow-up Retrospective Chart Review
BACKGROUND The abuse of opioids has reached epidemic proportions in the United States, and leftover medications are a primary source for nonmedical pain relievers. A past study at the University of Utah showed that micrographic surgeons were likely overprescribing opioids, with 35% of patients receiving a postoperative prescription. OBJECTIVE To examine the current opioid prescribing habits of the micrographic surgeons at the University of Utah compared with those in 2010. METHODS Retrospective...

Squamous Cell Carcinoma in Perineal, Perianal, and Gluteal Hidradenitis Suppurativa: Experience in 12 Patients
BACKGROUND Few reports describe squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) arising in hidradenitis suppurativa (HS). OBJECTIVE The 2 objectives were (1) to describe the clinical characteristics, pathologic findings, and postoperative outcomes of SCC in HS and (2) to assess whether human papillomavirus (HPV) is involved in the pathogenesis. MATERIALS AND METHODS Cases of SCC in HS were identified through institutional medical records (1976–2013) and the Rochester Epidemiology Project. Tumor specimens...

Use of 5-Aminolevulinic Acid and Daylight Photodynamic Therapy for the Treatment of Actinic Keratoses
BACKGROUND Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is an effective modality for the treatment of actinic keratoses (AKs). The use of methyl aminolevulinate with daylight PDT (D-PDT) has quickly gained popularity internationally because of its tolerability and high levels of safety and efficacy. However, there is a paucity of studies on the use of D-PDT with 5-aminolevulinic acid (ALA). OBJECTIVE To study the safety and efficacy of D-PDT in treating AKs on the face and scalp using ALA. MATERIALS AND...

Clinical Application of Cultured Stratified Epithelial Sheets Grown Under Feeder or Feeder-Free Conditions for Stable Vitiligo
BACKGROUND Autologous cultured therapy has emerged as an effective treatment for stable vitiligo. However, culture methods may include harmful agents and be unsuitable for therapeutic use in humans. OBJECTIVE To investigate the safety and efficacy of autologous cultured epithelial sheets propagated under serum-free and feeder-free conditions for the treatment of stable vitiligo. METHODS Twenty-eight patients with stable vitiligo were included in this study. Keratinocytes and melanocytes...

The Efficacy of Combining Fractional Carbon Dioxide Laser With Verapamil Hydrochloride or 5-Fluorouracil in the Treatment of Hypertrophic Scars and Keloids: A Clinical and Immunohistochemical Study
BACKGROUND Ablative fractional laser-assisted therapy is increasingly used to facilitate drug delivery and intensify clinical efficacy of topically applied drugs. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effectiveness of combined ablative fractional CO2 laser and topically applied 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) or verapamil hydrochloride in the treatment of hypertrophic scars (HTSs) and keloids and to examine their possible effects on TGF-β1 expression. PATIENTS AND METHODS Thirty patients with HTSs and keloids...

Evaluating the Effects of Injected Calcium Hydroxylapatite on Changes in Human Skin Elastin and Proteoglycan Formation
BACKGROUND Previous studies have shown that calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHa) injected intradermally resulted in new collagen production at 6 months after injection, and a possible increase in elastin formation. In addition, a recent study showed the formation of new collagen, elastin, and angiogenesis after injection at 4 and 9 months. OBJECTIVE To evaluate any changes in the presence of elastic fibers, proteoglycans, and elastin in photodamaged skin after injections with CaHa. METHODS AND...

Histologic Effects of Fractional Laser and Radiofrequency Devices on Hyaluronic Acid Filler
BACKGROUND Hyaluronic acid fillers (HAFs) and energy-based devices are frequently used sequentially. However, the effect of using fractional devices directly over HAF is unclear. OBJECTIVE To evaluate histologic changes after fractional laser and radiofrequency (RF) therapies applied over preinjected HAF. MATERIALS AND METHODS Abdominoplasty skin samples were divided into 8 zones. Intradermal injections of HAF were performed to 7 zones with 1 zone as untreated control. Six of 7 HAF injected...

Distinct Patterns of Hair Graft Survival After Transplantation Into 2 Nonhealing Ulcers: Is Location Everything?
BACKGROUND Studies highlighting the role of hair follicles (HFs) in wound healing have raised the challenge of bringing this knowledge to clinical applications. A successful translation is the transplantation of scalp HFs into chronic wounds to promote healing. OBJECTIVE To characterize scar formation and hair growth in nonhealing ulcers after transplantation. PATIENTS AND METHODS Nonhealing ulcers were treated with hair transplantation to promote wound healing. Hair follicles were harvested...

Botulinum Toxin Injections for Masseter Reduction in East Asians
BACKGROUND Cultural ideals for a slimmer face have led to an upsurge in interest in facial contouring among East Asians. Although surgical resection has traditionally been the main treatment option, botulinum toxin injection is becoming a popular, noninvasive alternative. OBJECTIVE To describe the use of botulinum toxin injection for masseter reduction in East Asians. METHODS An electronic search of the PubMed database was performed for studies published from 2000 to 2017 that meet the...

Incidence, Risk Factors, Progression, and Treatment of Endovenous Heat-Induced Thrombosis Class 2 or Greater After Endovenous Radiofrequency Ablation
BACKGROUND Endovenous heat-induced thrombosis (EHIT) is a thrombus that extends from an ablated saphenous vein into the common femoral vein after endovenous radiofrequency ablation (RFA). OBJECTIVE To investigate the incidence, progression, treatment, and risk factors associated with EHIT-2 or greater after RFA. MATERIALS AND METHODS This retrospective study included patients diagnosed with symptomatic superficial venous incompetence that were treated by RFA of the great saphenous vein...
