Human acellular amniotic membrane is adopted to treat venous ulcers. Exp Ther Med. 2018 Aug;16(2):1285-1289 Authors: Wu Z, Liu X, Yuan D, Zhao J Abstract Venous lower limb ulcers are very common and affect ~1% of the general population. The human acellular amniotic membrane (HAAM), which is isolated from the amniotic membrane (AM) via excluding the majority of cellular components, has lower antigenicity than the AM. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of the HAAM, adopted to treat venous ulcers (VUs) of the lower extremities. The HAMM was isolated from the AM by the Stem Cells and Tissue Engineering laboratory at the West China Hospital of Sichuan University (Chengdu, China). HAMMs were grafted onto VUs in 4 patients, with follow-up evaluations performed on the 3rd day and at the end of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd week, and 2nd, 3rd and 6th month after the HAAMs were applied. The size and depth of the VU (determined based on whether the depth of VU reaches the tibial plane), the proportion of granulation tissue (whether>50%) and the degree of secretion (measured by asessing the degree of satuation in the outer gauze) and infection (assessed qualitatively via the appearance of purulence or peripheral swelling) were assessed. Pain score was monitored at the same intervals using a visual analog scale. Complete epithelialization (healed tissue) occurred in 2 cases: The first at the end of the 3rd week and the second, at the 2...

AbstractObjectivesThe study aimed to compare the acetaminophen administration efficacy or its combination with codeine for pain control in acute apical abscesses cases.Materials and MethodsThirty-nine patients who sought emergency treatment in the Faculty of Dentistry of the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul were included, all of them with acute apical abscess diagnosis. These patients were divided into two groups: acetaminophen group —prescription of acetaminophen (1000 mg) and acetaminophen–codeine group—prescription of acetaminophen (1000 mg) + codeine (30 mg), both w...

CONCLUSIONS: In selected cases, MISS surgeries may be considered as a valid alternative to open surgery. Although the efficacy of PPSF has been well documented in trauma or degenerative spine surgery, there is not sufficient literature about MISS techniques in spinal metastasis and further studies are needed to elucidate the most appropriate patient in which this approach could represent the gold standard of treatment.

Authors: Knabl L, Mango M, Stögermüller B, Kirchmair L, Posch W, Lass-Flörl C, Fuchs S Abstract The Gram negative pathogen Capnocytophaga canimorsus is a frequent commensal in the oral cavity of cats and dogs. Although the bacterium is generally considered harmless, infections in humans can occur displaying a broad spectrum of clinical syndromes. This makes a clinical diagnosis difficult. The patient in the present case was 67 years old and presented to the emergency room (ER) with pain in the upper right abdomen and clinical signs of a feverish infection. The only noticeable record in the patient&ac...
