The tip is often ptotic obtuse and not particularly pronounced angles best exemplified and the skin somewhat thick. An overly prominent conformation of the nose can there- ments of the nasal pyramid distancing the patient from the fore attract attention and impair this particular expressiveness models of beauty of the past and present familiar to us all. Conversely, an insufficiently pronounced nasal conformation, such as saddle nose deformity, can also lead to a mournful expression that is equally out of keeping with the Mediterranean face. Rhinoplasty must not be confined in such cases to correcting the deformity in question but should seek above all to restore the harmony of the nose in the context of the face in accordance with the canons of Mediterranean ethnic beauty.
The renal fascia fuses with the fascia of the psoas muscle posteriorly and with the adventitia of the renal vessels anteriorly cheap extra super levitra 100mg overnight delivery. Within the renal fascia is an accumulation of fat known as perirenal fat discount extra super levitra 100mg mastercard, which is continuous with the fat within the renal sinus order extra super levitra 100mg without prescription. Pararenal fat is thick posterior to the kidney order extra super levitra in united states online, but it is thin anteriorly between the renal fascia and parietal peritoneum.

As each artery nears the renal pelvis, it typically divides into five segmental arteries that enter the hilum to supply segments of renal tissue. The right renal artery is the longer artery, and both renal arteries lie posterior to the renal veins when entering the hilum. The renal veins exit the hilum anterior to the arter- ies, and the left vein is longer and crosses the midline. On examination, she has acne, abnormal male pattern bald- ing, and enlargement of her clitoris. Blood tests show normal serum testosterone levels but a markedly elevated level of dihydroepiandrostenedione sulfate, an adrenal androgen. The testosterone level is normal, and the level of dihydroepiandrostenedione sulfate is markedly elevated. She also has virilism, or the effects of androgens on the skin, voice, and clitoris. The hyperandrogenism seems to be of acute onset, which is consistent with an androgen-secreting tumor. The two possibilities include an ovarian tumor, usually Sertoli-Leydig cell tumor, or an adrenal tumor. Because the pelvic examination and testosterone levels are normal, an ovarian etiology is less likely. Moreover, the high level of dihydroepiandrostenedione sulfate almost establishes the supra- renal (adrenal) gland as the cause. Another cause of hirsutism is polycystic ovarian syndrome, which includes hirsutism, obesity, anovulation, and irregular menses. Cushing syndrome or disease presents strong cortisol effects, such as buffalo hump, abdominal striae, easy bruising, and central obesity. Each gland sits on the superior pole of each kidney, enclosed within the renal fascia, and, hence, embedded in the perirenal fat. The left gland is shaped like a comma and related to the spleen, pancreas, stomach, and diaphragm. The suprarenal glands receive their blood supply from multiple small branches that arise from the inferior phrenic, aorta, and renal arteries. The lymphatic drainage of the abdomen is diagrammatically summarized in Figure 26-1. In general, the lymphatic drainage of abdominal organs reversely fol- lows their arterial blood supply. If a “final common pathway” for lymph drainage in the abdomen could be named, it would be the lumbar (aortic) lymph nodes, and lymph from these nodes drains to the cisterna chyli and thoracic duct. Figure 26-1 shows that the lymphatics from the gonads also drain to the upper lumbar nodes as the gonadal vessels arise in the upper abdomen (reflect- ing the site of their embryologic origin). Note also that the pectinate line in the anal canal is a watershed with regard to lymphatic drainage. The lymph from the anal canal and rectum superior to this line drains to iliac nodes; inferior to this line, lymph drains to inguinal nodes. The lymph of nodes located along the several arteries that supply the stom- ach will drain to the celiac nodes. Remember that the arteries that supply the stomach are all branches of the celiac artery. Tumor cells from either gonad that metastasize through the lymphatics will metastasize to the lumbar (aortic) lymph group. She relates that she had a similar mass about 1 year ago that required minor surgery. On physical examination, she is afebrile, and inspection of the perineum shows a 3 × 2-cm fluctuant mass at the five-o’clock position of the vestibule. The patient is afebrile and has a 3 × 2-cm fluctuant, inflamed mass at the five-o’clock position of the vestibule. These findings are very consistent with a greater vestibular (Bartholin) gland infection. The greater vestibular glands are located at the five- and seven- o’clock positions of the vulva. If the ducts of the glands become obstructed, the glands may enlarge and become infected, usually with multiple organisms other than those responsible for sexually transmitted diseases. Treatment for this patient is to create a fistulous tract to decrease the incidence of recurrence; the two most common methods are incision and drainage with a catheter left in place for several weeks and marsupial- ization of the cyst wall, which is suturing the inner lining of the cyst wall to the epi- thelium around the periphery of the cyst. Biopsy is typically not required in a young patient, but for vulvar masses or abnormalities in women older than 40 years it is required to rule out malignancy. It is bounded bilaterally by the pubic symphysis (anterior), ischiopubic ramus (anterolateral), ischial tuberosity (lateral), sacrotu- berous ligament (posterolateral), and the coccyx (posterior). A line between the ischial tuberosities divides the perineum into anterior and posterior urogenital and anal triangles, respectively. Deep to the skin is the fatty layer of superficial fascia, a continuation of a similar layer in the abdomen (Camper fascia). In the abdomen, deep to the fatty layer is the membranous layer of superficial fascia (Scarpa fascia) that continues into the perineum, where it is called Colles fascia. In the perineum, Colles fascia is attached laterally to the fascia lata of the thigh and to the posterior border of the perineal membrane and the perineal body. The perineal membrane is a thin but strong fascial sheet attached to the ischiopubic rami, thus stretching across the urogenital triangle. The potential space between the deep layer of the superficial (Colles) fascia and the perineal membrane is the superficial perineal pouch (space). Attached to the superior surface of the perineal membrane are the deep transverse perineal and sphincter urethrae muscles within the deep perineal pouch (space). The perineal body attaches to the posterior edge of the membrane at its midpoint (Figures 27-1 and 27-2). Superficial to the perineal membrane, the pudendum or vulva (external geni- talia) includes the mons pubis and labia majora, labia minora, vaginal vestibule, bulbs of the vestibule, greater vestibular (Bartholin) glands, clitoris, and the asso- ciated ischiocavernosus and bulbospongiosus muscles. The mons pubis is a rounded, hair-covered elevation anterior to the pubic symphysis formed by a mass of the fatty layer of the superficial fascia. Fat-filled posterior extensions of the mons form the hair-covered labia majora, which are united by anterior and posterior commissures. Mons pubis Labium majus External urethral Glans clitoris orifice Vestibule Labium minus Hymen Vaginal Fossa navicularis orifice Perineal body Anus figure 27-1. Medial to each labia majora are the thin, fat-free, hairless labia minora that are filled with erectile tissue and surround the vestibule of the vagina, which contains the urethral and vaginal ori- fices. The labia minora are united posteriorly by the frenulum of the labia minora or fourchette. Anteriorly, the two labia minora are united by extensions that pass anterior and posterior to the glans of the clitoris as the prepuce and frenulum of the clitoris, respectively. The clitoris is composed of paired cylinders of erectile tis- sue or corpora cavernosa attached to the ischiopubic rami as the two crura and are surrounded by the ischiocavernosus muscles. The corpora cavernosa converge toward the pubic symphysis to form the body, which is sharply flexed inferiorly and terminates as the glans anterior to the urethral orifice. Superior (deep) to the labia majora and minora, at the margins of the vestibule, are the paired bulbs of the vestibule. At the posterior ends of the bulbs and partially embedded in them are the paired greater vestibular (Bartholin) glands. A superficial transverse perineal muscle lies along the posterior edge of the perineal membrane and attaches laterally to the ischial tuberosity and medially to the perineal body. The components of the clitoris, bulb of the vestibule, greater vestibular gland, and the bulbospongiosus and ischiocav- ernosus muscles are encased in the deep perineal or investing (Gallaudet) fascia.

T h e most import ant det ails regarding t his pat ient’s case are t hat she has severe demen- tia, neurologic deficits from a prior stroke, and she is nonambulatory and bed bound. Revascularization of the ischemic extremity is not justifiable and not beneficial for a patient who is bed bound and nonambulatory; therefore, below the knee amputation is the best option for her. Systemic heparinization and femoral artery embolectomy is the most appropriate choice for this pat ient without history of chronic arterial occlu- sive disease sympt oms present ing wit h new onset at rial fibrillat ion, and acut e right femoral artery occlusion. Most likely, this patient has suffered from an acut e embolizat ion to t hat art ery. The pat ient has ischemic sympt oms wit h some fin d in gs of advan ced isch em ia ( blu ish d iscolor at ion wit h m ot or an d sen sor y neuropathy).
