Abstract: Background: Venous ulcers represent 70% of the lower limb ulcers. They are difficult to heal, requiring a correct diagnostic and therapeutic approach. Many products have been developed to healing, such as homologous platelet gel obtained from the platelet concentrate exceeding from blood transfusion. Objective: To evaluate the safety and efficacy of homologous platelet gel in venous ulcers compared with hydrocolloid dressing. Method: A pilot randomized clinical trial in patients with venous ulcers. Randomized groups (homologous platelet gel and hydrocolloid groups) were followed for 90 days and were assessed thro...

CONCLUSION: There is a wide differential for fever after a spinal cord injury. In this case report, the source of fever was APL. It is important as healthcare providers to not overlook fevers when otherwise common causes do not fit the clinical picture. Additionally, there has been no association found between traumatic spinal cord injury and the development of acute leukemia, however this is the first case report. Therefore, it is important to continue investigating to determine if an association exists. PMID: 28929913 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Transfusion decision making (TDM) in the critically ill requires consideration of: (1) anemia tolerance, which is linked to active pathology and to physiologic reserve, (2) differences in donor RBC physiology from that of native RBCs, and (3) relative risk from anemia-attributable oxygen delivery failure vs hazards of transfusion, itself. Current approaches to TDM (e.g. hemoglobin thresholds) do not: (1) differentiate between patients with similar anemia, but dissimilar pathology/physiology, and (2) guide transfusion timing and amount to efficacy-based goals (other than resolution of hemoglobin thresholds). Here, we explor...
