Results Twenty-four patients met eligibility criteria. Mean (SD) age was () years; 18 (75%) were female. Ten (42%) patients had idiopathic, 8 (33%) had traumatic, and 6 (25%) had rheumatologic-related SGS/PTS. Mean (SD) follow-up time was () months. Patients underwent mean (SD) () injections. Seventeen (71%) patients have not undergone further surgery after ISI. Mean (SD) SFI was () months overall and was () months for idiopathic, () for traumatic, and () for rheumatologic-related SGS/PTS. Twenty-one (88%) patients underwent dilation(s) prior to ISI. Among patients who fulfilled eligibility criteria for comparison of SFI before and after ISI, SFI improved from months before, to months after ISI (mean difference, months; 95% CI, − to months). Three of 6 patients (all with traumatic SGS/PTS) presenting with a tracheotomy were decannulated. No patients required open airway surgery after ISI. There were no adverse events associated with ISI.
Following each of two intralesional administrations, separated by 24 hours, of XIAFLEX mg into the penile plaque of 19 subjects with Peyronie’s disease, plasma levels of AUX-I and AUX-II in subjects with quantifiable levels (79% and 40% for AUX-I and AUX-II, respectively) were minimal and short-lived. The maximal plasma concentrations of AUX-I and AUX-II were <29 ng/mL and <71 ng/mL, respectively, and were observed approximately within 10 minutes after injection. All plasma levels were below the limits of quantification within 30 minutes following dosing. There was no evidence of accumulation following two sequential injections of XIAFLEX administered 24 hours apart. No subject had quantifiable plasma levels 15 minutes after modeling of plaque on Day 3 (., 24 hours after Injection 2 on Day 2).
The most frequent complaints about hemangiomas stem from psychosocial complications. The condition can affect a person's appearance and provoke attention and malicious reactions from others. Particular problems occur if the lip or nose is involved, as distortions can be difficult to treat surgically . The potential for psychological injury develops from school age onward. It is therefore important to consider treatment before school begins if adequate spontaneous improvement has not occurred. Large hemangiomas can leave visible skin changes secondary to severe stretching that results in altered surface texture.
