    • A Bio-Inspired Swellable Microneedle Adhesive for Mechanical Interlocking with Tissue 

      Yang, Seung Yun; O'Cearbhaill, Eoin D.; Sisk, Geoffroy C.; Park, Kyeng Min; Cho, Woo Kyung; Villiger, Martin; Bouma, Brett E.; Pomahac, Bohdan; Karp, Jeffrey M. (2013)
      Achieving significant adhesion to soft tissues while minimizing tissue damage poses a considerable clinical challenge. Chemical-based adhesives require tissue-specific reactive chemistry, typically inducing a significant ...
    • Craniofacial Measurements of Donors and Recipients Correlate with Aesthetic Outcome in Virtual Face Transplantation 

      S. Wallins, Joseph; Chandawarkar, Akash A.; Dobry, Allison; Diaz-Siso, J. Rodrigo; Bueno, Ericka M.; Caterson, Edward J.; Jania, Camille; Hevelone, Nathanael D.; Lipsitz, Stuart R.; Mukundan, Srinivasan; Pomahac, Bohdan (Wolters Kluwer Health, 2015)
      Background: Face transplantation is an increasingly feasible option for patients with severe disfigurement. Donors and recipients are currently matched based on immune compatibility, skin characteristics, age, and gender. ...
    • Efficacy and Safety of the Collagenase of the Bacterium Clostridium Histolyticum for the Treatment of Capsular Contracture after Silicone Implants: Ex-Vivo Study on Human Tissue 

      Fischer, Sebastian; Hirche, Christoph; Diehm, Yannick; Nuutila, Kristo; Kiefer, Jurij; Gazyakan, Emre; Bueno, Ericka M.; Kremer, Thomas; Kneser, Ulrich; Pomahac, Bohdan (Public Library of Science, 2016)
      Background: The fibrotic capsule that surrounds silicone implants consists mainly of collagen. The FDA-approved collagenase of the bacterium clostridium histolyticum provides a reasonable treatment option. Safety and ...
    • Face Time: Educating Face Transplant Candidates 

      Lamparello, Brooke M.; Bueno, Ericka M.; Diaz-Siso, Jesus Rodrigo; Sisk, Geoffroy C.; Pomahac, Bohdan (Open Science Company, LLC, 2013)
      Objective: Face transplantation is the innovative application of microsurgery and immunology to restore appearance and function to those with severe facial disfigurements. Our group aims to establish a multidisciplinary ...
    • High-dose-rate Interstitial Brachytherapy Boost with a Pedicled Latissimus Dorsi Myocutaneous Flap for Myxofibrosarcoma of the Arm 

      Lane, Jordan D.; Pomahac, Bohdan; Raut, Chandrajit P.; Baldini, Elizabeth H.; Devlin, Phillip M. (Wolters Kluwer Health, 2014)
      Summary: A 71-year-old man was found to have a 7.4 × 2.9 × 7.0 cm myxofibrosarcoma of the right medial arm close to neurovascular structures. He received 50 Gray (Gy) of preoperative external beam radiation. Radical resection ...
    • Noninvasive Vascular Images for Face Transplant Surgical Planning 

      Soga, Shigeyoshi; Wake, Nicole; Bueno, Ericka; Steigner, Michael L.; Mitsouras, Dimitrios; Schultz, Kurt; Diaz-Siso, J. Rodrigo; Sisk, Geoffroy Courcelle; Prior, Richard; Powers, Sara L.; Signorelli, Jason; Jania, Camille K.; Pomahac, Bohdan; Rybicki, Frank (Open Science, 2011)
      Objective: Face transplantation replaces substantial defects with anatomically identical donor tissues; preoperative vascular assessment relies on noninvasive imaging to separate and characterize the external carotid vessels ...
    • Reduced Radiation Exposure for Face Transplant Surgical Planning Computed Tomography Angiography 

      Schultz, Kurt; George, Elizabeth; Mullen, Katherine M; Steigner, Michael L.; Mitsouras, Dimitrios; Bueno, Ericka; Pomahac, Bohdan; Rybicki, Frank John; Kumamaru, Kanako (Public Library of Science, 2013)
      Objective: To test the hypothesis that wide area detector face transplant surgical planning CT angiograms with simulated lower radiation dose and iterative reconstruction (AIDR3D) are comparable in image quality to those ...
    • Silicone Implants with Smooth Surfaces Induce Thinner but Denser Fibrotic Capsules Compared to Those with Textured Surfaces in a Rodent Model 

      Fischer, Sebastian; Hirche, Christoph; Reichenberger, Matthias A.; Kiefer, Jurij; Diehm, Yannick; Mukundan, Srinivasan; Alhefzi, Muayyad; Bueno, Ericka M.; Kneser, Ulrich; Pomahac, Bohdan (Public Library of Science, 2015)
      Purpose Capsular contracture is the most frequent long-term complication after implant-based breast reconstruction or augmentation. The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of implant surface properties on fibrotic ...
    • Three Patients with Full Facial Transplantation 

      Pomahac, Bohdan; Pribaz, Julian Joseph; Eriksson, Elof; Bueno, Ericka; Diaz-Siso, J. Rodrigo; Rybicki, Frank John; Annino, Donald James; Orgill, Dennis Paul; Caterson, Edward J; Caterson, Stephanie A.; Carty, Matthew Jonathan; Chun, Yoon Sun; Sampson, Christian Edward; Janis, Jeffrey E.; Alam, Daniel S.; Saavedra, Arturo; Molnar, Joseph A.; Edrich, Thomas; Marty, Francisco Miguel; Tullius, Stefan Gunther (New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM/MMS), 2012)
      Unlike conventional reconstruction, facial transplantation seeks to correct severe deformities in a single operation. We report on three patients who received full-face transplants at our institution in 2011 in operations ...
    • Upper Extremity Composite Tissue Allotransplantation Imaging 

      George, Elizabeth; Mitsouras, Dimitrios; Kumamaru, Kanako K.; Shah, Nehal; Smith, Stacy E.; Schultz, Kurt; Deaver, Pamela M.; Mullen, Katherine M.; Steigner, Michael L.; Gravereaux, Edwin C.; Demehri, Shadpour; Bueno, Ericka M.; Talbot, Simon G.; Pomahac, Bohdan; Rybicki, Frank J. (Open Science Company, LLC, 2013)
