complication rate (25.2%–40.0%) [ 8 , 11 , 12 , 14 ], and a need for additional surgical interventions, including anastomosis revision, bleeding control, limb amputation, and debridement with or without soft tissue coverage by a secondary free flap, regional flap, local flap, or skin graft [ 3 , 4 , 11 , 13 ]. The objective of this retrospective study was to analyze and report postoperative complications and the need for additional surgical interventions after free flap surgery for upper and lower extremity reconstructions at our center over 10 years (2004

bronchoscopic biopsy specimens and confirmed to have tuberculosis is the etiology and treated with four-drug antituberculosis treatment containing isoniazid, rifampicin, pyrazinamide, and ethambutol. The response to therapy was excellent, with complete clinical and radiological response in 6 months of treatment. Conclusion Steroids will cause generalized immunosuppression and qualitative and quantitative local lung immune defense defect, resulting in increased risk of tuberculosis because of reactivation of latent infection or relapse or acquiring new infection. Risk of

the malar region flattens and descends. Dermal filler injection is a nonsurgical cosmetic procedure and is available at a reasonable cost. It can minimize wrinkles or creases within the facial skin effectively and apparent rejuvenation is achieved as a favorable outcome [ 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 ]. There is a cannula entry site for filler injection at the midface recommended by Beut that can restore the facial defect resulting from aging. In clinical practice, filler techniques have been improved by using an entry point 2 cm inferolateral to the lateral canthus as a soft

Introduction Over the past 15 years, there have been unprecedented advances in the multimodality treatment of locally advanced rectal cancer (LARC). The shift of chemoradiotherapy (CRT) from a postoperative to a preoperative setting enabled tumour downsizing and downstaging and, consequently, increased the likelihood of microscopic complete clearance of the primary tumour (R0 resection). With a highly precise surgical technique and a total mesorectal excision, combined modality treatment resulted in an excellent local control and, as such, represents the

Right Kinds of Mixing?

Promoting Cohesion in a Copenhagen Neighbourhood

importance thus attributed to projects of ‘mixing’ was an attempt to counter potential threats of fragmentation by facilitating a sense of community. However, inherent in the prioritisation of cultural encounters, there is a potential danger of ignoring and individualising larger structural issues of inequality. In this context, Amin argues that urban social inequality, at least in the UK, has come to be re-cast as a defect of place , and a deficiency of the capacity of local residents to [naturally] participate and connect , which has left very little attention to

. Fig. 6 Morphology of printed structures The sintered structures ( Fig. 6c to Fig. 6j ) very often have little defects in various forms. A lot of transponder circuit elements have irregular edges ( Fig. 6c to Fig. 6f ). In most analyzed cases, some details of the printouts are wider than the modeled structures but mostly no more than 150 µm (rarely encountered maximal differences do not exceed 200 µm width, Fig. 6h ). Local decrements of dimensions much more rarely appear and have no more than 120 µm. The blank subarea metal layer (on the path labeled

implicated a regulatory role for the RAS in hematopoiesis [ 8 ]. These mice have exhibited not only phenotypes related to blood pressure, but also demonstrated defects in development and in hematopoietic system [ 9 ]. ACE null mice are mildly anemic, so it is presumed that the lack of systemic or local production of Ang II has a detrimental effect on erythropoiesis [ 10 ]. The AGTR1 belong to the G protein-coupled receptor family and typically activates phospholipase C (PLC). It maps to chromosome 3 [ 11 ]. Acute leukemias are hemopoietic neoplasms characterized by

the interstitial region. The parameter G max , which defines the magnitude of the largest vector in the charge density Fourier expansion, was chosen to be 14. The Brillouin zone integration was performed using the Monkhorst-Pack method with 3000 k-points in the first Brillouin zone [ 20 ]. The cut-off energy, which defines the separation of valence and core states, was chosen to be −6 Ry. We selected the charge convergence to be 0.0001 during self-consistency cycles. In this framework, the strong Coulomb repulsion between localized f states was treated by adding a
