KOL-Index: 28 BackgroundGuidelines for prophylactic antibiotics in surgery have long been established; however, few have focused on recommendations in plastic surgery. Surgical site infection rates remain low, yet the use of prophylactic antibiotics has surged in the past 30 years. This article summarizes current recommendations of prophylactic antibiotic use to produce consensus guidelines in plastic ...

KOL-Index: 9 BACKGROUND: Postoperative pain control can be challenging in reduction mammaplasty patients. This study compares perioperative liposomal bupivacaine (Exparel; Pacira Pharmaceuticals, Inc, San Diego, Calif) with standard local anesthetics to determine if liposomal bupivacaine decreases opioid and antiemetic use, impacting length of stay and complication rates, thus improving patient outcomes. ...

KOL-Index: 8 BACKGROUND: Various theories exist to explain the etiology of iatrogenic symmastia. Subglandular over-dissection of the medial breast pocket over the sternum, disruption of midline sternal fascia, oversized implant base diameter, and over-dissection of the medial pectoralis muscle attachments to the sternum are popular explanations. OBJECTIVES: The authors hypothesized that the most common ...

KOL-Index: 6 Raoultella planticola is a gram-negative, aerobic, rod bacterium commonly found in the environment, particularly in water, soil, and fish. This organism has been found to cause a variety of infections, such as necrotizing fasciitis, cystitis, cholecystitis, pancreatitis, hepatic disease, and soft tissue infections. The authors report the case of a 73-year-old-woman who presented with a R ...

KOL-Index: 5 INTRODUCTION: A Morel-Lavallée lesion (MLL) is a rare and aesthetically concerning condition caused by a shearing force between subcutaneous fat and underlying fascia. Subsequent seroma formation occurs after the initial trauma of a crush injury, ligamentous sprain, or abdominal liposuction. Misdiagnosed lesions lead to inadequate treatment and are a source of chronic pain. CASE REPORT: The ...
