In this study, the scaffolds were examined in burn and excision wounds healing on dogs as bigger models. The scaffolds were applied on dorsum skin wounds (n = 5) then macroscopic and microscopic investigations were carried out to measure the wounds areas and to track healing rate, respectively. Macroscopic results showed good aspect healing effect of scaffolds compared with control wounds especially after 21 days post-operating for both cutting and burn wounds. Pathological studies showed that the healing rates of the wounds covered with PCL: Cs: PVA nanofibrous scaffolds were much rapid compared to untreated wounds in con...

Injecting drug use is the most stigmatised among all routes of illicit drug administration (Ahern et al., 2007), as it is seen as the ultimate breach of social conventions in contemporary society (Treloar et al., 2013; Manderson, 1995). Stigma, as a sign of low moral status (Goffman, 1986), is followed by discrimination (Sartorius, 2006), which is defined as actions from a dominant group or group member that aim to harm other individuals that are part of less dominant groups (Huddy et al., 2013).

ConclusionsPatients hospitalised for unintentional burns had significantly higher MH admission rates after discharge than that observed for an uninjured cohort. Ongoing mental health support is clearly indicated for many burns patients for a prolonged period after discharge.

This study found a "statistically significant difference during initial hours after fracture reduction and fixation so that pain intensity was less in elderly patients under hematoma block than patients who underwent general anesthesia in one and six hours after surgery." Most importantly, patients in the hematoma block group required less narcotic pain medication compared with the general surgery population.Experienced providers often know exactly where to inject anesthesia for hematoma blocks. Ultrasound-guided injection techniques, however, prove to be more accurate. Using ultrasound to identify the hematoma a...
