Energy-based skin rejuvenation has, like other forms of aesthetic treatments, the capability of achieving desirable end results. These end results must be balanced with the degree and duration of morbidity, which affect recovery from treatment. Renuvion skin resurfacing protocols include a free hand approach and we describe our preferred approach of pulsing and fractionating the helium plasma resurfacing energy.

Fat grafting is as a unique regenerative filler with soluble factors and progenitor cells that may remodel scar tissue in an easy yet effective way. A combination of microfat grafting, lipococoncentrate injection, scar subcision, and platelet-rich plasma supplementation may be used to treat the majority of facial scars. The lipoconcentrate technique condenses the lipoaspirate to a progenitor cell-rich fluid of low volume by a combination of centrifugation and emulsification steps. In this article, the authors' methods for scar treatment by fat grafting are discussed. Choice of technique for facial scars, precise indications, and contraindications are introduced.

Conclusion: Differences in perception exist between healthcare professionals and laypeople. The discrepancies between the professional groups could be attributed to different treatment modalities and protocols.

Primary or secondary subtalar joint arthrodesis after displaced intra-articular calcaneal fractures makes use of talocalcaneal large-diameter screw fixation after an eventual correction of geometric hindfoot deformity. Despite this procedure usually having a successful functional outcome, potential complications occur, including nonunion and malalignment, with an unknown rate of loss of correction or implant migration during the healing period. Angular stable fixation of the subtalar joint arthrodesis with an interlocking nail applied in a minimally invasive technique affords maintenance of the hindfoot position until osseous healing occurs. The key steps of the surgical technique are described.
CONCLUSIONS: Although CS of the hand bones behaves as a locally aggressive lesion, it rarely metastasizes. Intralesional curettage with a cancellous bone autograft appears to be a good option in low-grade CS to preserve the function, keeping in mind the high rate of recurrence. Wide excision or amputation is recommended when severe joint deformity or soft tissue involvement interferes with hand function.

CONCLUSIONS: This study shows the impact and incidence of related hand and wrist injuries. Motocross is a globally fashionable sport. This study shows that the number of annual tournaments and racers have doubled in last 5 years. The number of hand and wrist related injuries and operative requirements have quadruples over the last five years. It is recognized as a high-risk sport despite the use of protective equipment and course adaptions. These injuries can have implications for nearby treating hospitals.

CONCLUSIONS: We found no statistical difference between 2 repairs in load at which they started failing (p = 0.16), and maximum load repairs could withstand (p = 0.35). Our study uniquely compares two techniques under standard conditions, and contrary to existing evidence found no difference. However, in our opinion the number of anchor points may have a greater impact than number of weaves on the strength.
