[Our Experience with Application and Cutometric Evaluation of Collagen-Elastin Dermal Substitute Matriderm® in Local Therapy of 6-Year-Old Boy with Severe Burn Trauma]. Acta Chir Orthop Traumatol Cech. 2019;86(4):286-289 Authors: Holoubek J, Lipový B Abstract The consequences of deep burns to the hands and face are the most challenging we encounter in modern reconstructive surgery. In many cases, the simple autotransplantation of full-thickness defects with split-thickness skin grafts is now considered inadequate or outdated. For this and many other reasons, the use of dermal substitution i...

Conclusion: The Bifidobacterium infantis 35624 single-strain probiotic is generally superior to Lactobacillus reuteri protectis in altering intestinal immunity; however, this finding was not statistically significant. A multi-strain probiotic supplement is recommended for burns patients. PMID: 31523410 [PubMed]

This study aimed to determine the seizure frequency and assess the clinical benefit of a 5-minute air-break (5´-AIRBK). METHODS: Twenty-year (1999-2018) retrospective analysis of all consecutive treatments with HBOT. Medical records were reviewed to determine patient demographics, comorbidities, HBOT indications, and seizure characteristics and timing. Seizure frequency was compared before and after incorporating a 5´-AIRBK in the treatment protocol. Chi-square testing was performed using SPSS (version 24.0); P

Dysfunction of the gut–blood barrier plays an important role in many diseases, such as inflammatory bowel disease, hemorrhagic shock (HS), or burn injury. However, little is known about gut barrier dysfunction after hemodynamically instable polytrauma (PT). Therefore, we aimed to evaluate the effects of PT and HS on remote intestinal damage and barrier dysfunction, especially regarding the role of zonula occludens protein 1 (ZO-1) as an important tight junction protein. Male C57BL/6 mice were subjected to either PT (thorax trauma, closed head injury, soft tissue injury, and distal femoral fracture), 60 min of pres...

Conclusions Biofilms represent a major clinical challenge, with no clear consensus for treatment of chronic wounds or prosthetic devices. Our results suggest that hypochlorous acid–based wound solutions such as Vashe and PhaseOne are more efficacious than mafenide in eliminating bacterial and fungal biofilms. Further studies are necessary to investigate and compare the in vivo efficacy of these products in clinical care.

A gas explosion has sparked a fire at a Russian bioweapons facility which stores viruses including Ebola, smallpox and Anthrax. The blast occurred on Monday after a gas cylinder exploded during scheduled repair work on the fifth floor of the six-story Russian State Centre for Research on Virology and Biotechnology, commonly known as Vector, the facility said in a statement. No biological material was held in the sanitary inspection room where the explosion occurred, and no structural damage was caused to the concrete laboratory building, the center added. One worker was taken to hospital and is being treated in intensive c...

AbstractIn the existing reports on combined procedures of abdominoplasty with Cesarean section or natural delivery, a high incidence of complications and poor aesthetic results are reported. We conducted a survey with the participation of 61 plastic surgeons who performed this procedure in 808 patients, with an average of 13.24 procedures per surgeon. In 783 procedures (96.9% of the cases), the combination was with Cesarean section and 25 procedures (3.13% of cases) were combined with vaginal delivery. The plastic surgery procedures were as follows: 242 abdominoplasty procedures (29.95%), 210 abdominoplasty plus liposuctio...
