Authors: Chuh A, Zawar V, Fölster-Holst R, Sciallis G, Rosemann T Abstract Dermoscopy in primary care enhances clinical diagnoses and allows for risk stratifications. We have compiled 25 recommendations from our experience of dermoscopy in a wide range of clinical settings. The aim of this study is to enhance the application of dermoscopy by primary care clinicians. For primary care physicians commencing dermoscopy, we recommend understanding the aims of dermoscopy, having adequate training, purchasing dermoscopes with polarised and unpolarised views, performing regular maintenance on the equipment, seeking co...

Inadequately managed postsurgical pain impacts morbidity, mortality, and health care costs. More than 75% of surgical patients in the United States experience moderate, severe, or extreme postoperative pain.1,2 Despite efforts to control pain during and immediately after surgery with agents such as local anesthetics, opiates, gabapentinoids, acetaminophen, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents, pain often persists. The risk of developing chronic postoperative pain has been correlated to the intensity of acute postoperative pain.

Inflammation contributes to ventricular remodeling after myocardial ischemia, but its role in nonischemic heart failure is poorly understood. Local tissue inflammation is difficult to assess serially during pathogenesis. Although 18F-FDG accumulates in inflammatory leukocytes and thus may identify inflammation in the myocardial microenvironment, it remains unclear whether this imaging technique can isolate diffuse leukocytes in pressure-overload heart failure. We aimed to evaluate whether inflammation with 18F-FDG can be serially imaged in the early stages of pressure-overload–induced heart failure and to compare the...
