In this study we will compare the clinical outcomes and patient satisfaction using different rhinoplasty procedures. A retrospective cohort analysis of rhinoplasty procedures will be done. Using the BIDMC computer database, all cases of rhinoplasty performed between September 2010 and September 2015 will be reviewed. Through a chart review and patient surveys we will analyze the hospital’s rhinoplasty rate, compare clinical outcomes and evaluate patient satisfaction.

The aim of this study is to evaluate the various contributing factors related to the development, diagnosis and management of patients with skin cancer of the head and neck. A retrospective analysis of patients with skin cancer of the head and neck is being done. Using the BIDMC computer database, all cases of skin cancer of the head and neck will be reviewed. This process will take place from September 2011 to September 2015. Skin cancer rate, clinical outcomes, and the various contributing factors related to development, diagnosis and management of skin cancer will be analyzed.

The aim of this exploratory study is to assess the potential impact of real-time intraoperative CT scanning (xCAT® ENT) during surgical reduction of fractures. Patients undergoing surgical correction for fractures above the neck will have an intraoperative CT scan to judge operative reduction with segmentation of the intraoperative CT dataset to mirror the unaffected side with the reconstructed side; patients with unsatisfactory reductions or surgeries will be documented and will benefit from immediate revision followed by another intraoperative CT to confirm fracture reduction or sinus surgery completion.

This is a collaborative effort both within the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center between the divisions of plastic surgery, breast surgery, department of medicine; hematology/oncology and pathology, but also with the group at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). This study is focused primarily on tumor cell research. We are developing advanced cell separation tools and applying it to isolate/characterize tumor cells in the blood and tissues of cancer patients.

This is a collaborative effort with the group at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and is focused on innovation in basic neuroscience. We are developing an electrochemical nerve stimulation and blocking method via local modulation of ion concentrations at the peripheral nerve surface using a microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) device.

This study aims to analyze breast reconstruction rate following partial mastectomy, comparison of clinical outcomes and evaluation of patient satisfaction as well as calculation of the cost of using different reconstructive techniques. A retrospective cohort analysis of breast reconstruction procedures following partial mastectomy is being undertaken. Using the BIDMC computer database, all cases of partial mastectomy for both breast cancer and non-cancer patients performed between January 2010 and January 2014 will be reviewed.

The aim of this study is to develop integrated efficient CFD software for nasal airway evaluation. Patients requiring CT scan of the nose and paranasal sinus prescribed for routine care are recruited and evaluated clinically via anterior rhinoscopy, acoustic rhinometry, the NOSE scale and the linear symptom scale. A nasal CT scan will then be performed and analyzed. The integrated CFD software will then evaluate the aerodynamic parameters regarding air velocity, pressure distribution, pressure at the posterior nares, nasal resistance, intensity, presence and location of turbulence and wall shear stress. The parameters obtained from the nasal CFD studies will then be correlated with the clinically acquired data.
