81. Sympathetic ganglionectomy for facial blushing using application of laser speckle flow graph. (PubMed)

Sympathetic ganglionectomy for facial blushing using application of laser speckle flow graph. Endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy at the second rib level is considered effective as a therapeutic treatment for facial blushing. However, 10% to 15% of patients do not benefit from this intervention. No additional procedure has been developed for this disorder. Recently, ganglionectomy using application of laser speckle flow graph has been evaluated for the treatment of compensatory sweating. We (...) report our results of ganglionectomy for facial blushing as a redo surgery.Between August 2012 and April 2017, 8 patients with facial blushing who underwent an initial sympathectomy reported symptom recurrence. Seven patients had undergone transection of the sympathetic trunk at the second rib and 1 patient had undergone transection of the sympathetic trunk at the second and third ribs. These patients were treated using ganglionectomy guided by application of laser speckle flow graph. After temporary

82. Laser-Assisted Liposuction (LAL) Versus Traditional Liposuction: Systematic Review.

Laser-Assisted Liposuction (LAL) Versus Traditional Liposuction: Systematic Review. Liposuction is the most performed surgical procedure in Brazil and the second in the world. In recent years, new technologies have been developed in an attempt to improve liposuction, such as laser. The objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of laser-assisted liposuction (LAL) compared to traditional liposuction through a systematic review of the literature.The search strategy used (...) was the combination of the descriptors [lasers (MeSH Terms)] and (lipectomy [MeSH Terms]) in the PubMed database. Two independent researchers carried out the reading of the abstracts and selection of the studies according to the eligibility criteria. The risks of study bias were evaluated using an instrument similar to that used by the Cochrane Collaboration.Initially, 80 studies were obtained and, after evaluating the eligibility criteria, seven remained. Five of them observed that LAL has benefits when compared

87. Wave Propagation in Aluminum Honeycomb Plate and Debonding Detection Using Scanning Laser Vibrometer (PubMed)

Wave Propagation in Aluminum Honeycomb Plate and Debonding Detection Using Scanning Laser Vibrometer Both the aerospace and marine industry have widely relied on a honeycomb sandwich structure (HSS) because of its high strength-to-weight ratio. However, the intrinsic nature of an adhesively bonded multi-layer structure increases the risk of debonding when the structure is under strain or exposed to varying temperatures. Such defects are normally concealed under the surface but can significantly (...) compromise the strength and stiffness of a structure. In this paper, the guided wave method is used to detect debondings which are located between the skin and the honeycomb in sandwich plates. The propagation of guided waves in honeycomb plates is investigated via numerical techniques, with emphasis placed on demonstrating the behavior of structure-based wave interactions (SWIs). The SWI technique is effective to distinguish heterogeneous structures from homogeneous structures. The excitation frequency

be a substitute for applanation tonometry. A laser Doppler vibrometer (LDV) is an instrument that is used to make non-contact vibration measurements of a surface. The laser beam from the LDV is directed at the surface of interest (in our case the skin covering the artery or the heart), and the vibration amplitude and frequency are extracted from the Doppler shift of the reflected laser beam frequency due to the motion of the surface. Preliminary data suggest that LDV can lead to an improved screening (...) stiffness without contact to the skin thanks to the LDV technique.
