  1. doi Capsular contracture after breast reconstruction: collagen fiber orientation and organization
    Kurtis E Moyer
    Division of Plastic Surgery, Penn State University College of Medicine, Hershey, PA 17033, USA
    Plast Reconstr Surg 131:680-5. 2013
    ..Comparing breast implant-related capsular contracture to the fibrotic scarring process, the hypothesis is that these processes differ with regard to the compaction of collagen fibers within the connective tissue matrix...
  2. doi Technique for seroma drainage in implant-based breast reconstruction
    Kurtis E Moyer
    Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Penn State Milton S Hershey Medical Center, 500 University Dr, MC H071, Hershey, PA 17033, USA
    J Plast Reconstr Aesthet Surg 65:1614-7. 2012
    ..The benefit to this technique is that diagnostic and therapeutic imaging is not necessary and the risk of expander damage is minimized...
  3. ncbi Mast cells promote fibroblast populated collagen lattice contraction through gap junction intercellular communication
    Kurtis E Moyer
    Division of Plastic Surgery, Milton S Hershey Medical Center, 500 University Drive, Hershey, PA 17033 0850, USA
    Wound Repair Regen 12:269-75. 2004
    ..Therefore, enhanced mast cell-FPCL contraction appears to be independent of mast cell granules, but dependent upon GJIC between fibroblasts and mast cells. We speculate that mast cell-fibroblast GJIC may play a role in fibrosis...

    Theodore T Foley
    Wound Healing Laboratory, Division of Plastic Surgery, The Pennsylvania State University, College of Medicine, MS Hershey Medical Center, Hershey, PA 17033, USA
    Plast Reconstr Surg 127:1478-86. 2011
    ..HMC-1 cells thrive without supplements, suggesting that they release the factor(s) necessary for their viability. Spent HMC-1 medium may contain the factor(s) that generate a viable rat mast cell line...
  5. ncbi Systemic vanadate ingestion modulates rat tendon repair
    Kurtis E Moyer
    Division of Plastic Surgery, Milton S Hershey Medical Center, Hershey, PA 17033 0850, USA

    Howard Levinson
    Division of Plastic Surgery, MS Hershey Medical Center, Hershey, PA, USA
    Wound Repair Regen 12:505-11. 2004
    ..These findings support the idea that fibroblast CaM-MLCK activity is essential for tissue repair. We speculate that inhibition of CaM-MLCK may reduce or prevent detrimental fibrotic contracture...

    H Paul Ehrlich
    Division of Plastic Surgery, Department of Surgery, M S Hershey Medical Center, Penn State University Medical College, Hershey, PA, USA
