We aimed to compare function and aesthetics of retroauricular full thickness skin grafts (FTSG) to plantar glabrous split thickness skin grafts (STSG).Methods32 palmar grafts in paediatric burn patients were analysed: 19 retroauricular FTSG (group 1) and 13 thick plantar glabrous STSG (group 2). The latter were harvested at a thickness of 0.5 mm. The resulting plantar donor defec...

I burnt out as a GP but in mental health I could take time with patients and, at last, make a difference“If you’re going to reject me, then reject me,” I said. I was deep in the bowels of Leicester University, being interviewed for a place at medical school. I was 35, a fact the learned professor interviewing me returned to again and again. How would I cope with the workload? Would the four hour s’ driving each day prove too much? How would I support myself through my studies? Concerns that travelled through my own mind. Unlike the questions I asked myself, though, the queries in that interview room...

The two step anodizing process is optimized for obtaining uniform and ordered nanotubular structures, that are then annealed in air or reduced in an Ar/H2 environment....

The featured headline of a newsarticle published yesterday atNorthJersey.com (theNorth Jersey Record) was: " Vaping with JUUL Damaged NJ Woman's Lungs, Left Her Hospitalized. "The headline of the article itself read: "'My Lungs Were Chemically Burned': NJ Victim Speaks Out Against Vaping. "These headlines certainly give the impression that this unfortunate 21-year-old woman developed acute respiratory failure due to her use of JUUL.If true, this would be an absolute disaster because there are an estimated 7 million JUUL users.This is no doubt going to contribute to the public's belief that electronic ci...
