Reconstruction of the burned hand.
[Reconstruction of the burned hand]. Handchir Mikrochir Plast Chir. 2019 Sep;51(5):377-383 Authors: Plock J, Calcagni M Abstract Reconstruction of the burned hand requires detailed knowledge and surgical skills to develop a therapeutic concept for optimal functional outcomes through predictive planning. The key to success is to use a broad spectrum of plastic surgery and hand surgery techniques, individually applied to the patient's situation.In this overview article, we describe basic principles, timing of reconstruction, classification of deformities, and the corresponding techniques for surgical correction.

Conclusions Our findings reveal that the majority of survey respondents do not immobilize the extremities after autograft without joint involvement. When grafts cross major joints, most surgeons immobilize for 3 or 5 days. Despite some practice variability, surveyed burn surgeons' current lower extremity ambulation practices generally align with the 2012 guidelines of Nedelec et al.
Conclusions It is fundamental that appropriate diagnostic and management guidelines are developed. Furthermore, this case highlights the importance of educating patient's carers and health professionals of key symptoms to be wary of postburn.

In this work, silk fabrics (SFs) were modified with a series of natural polyphenols under the catalysis of laccase and then reacted with a ferrous solution to construct fabric surfaces with a micro-nano structure. Among the modified SFs, dopamine-Fe-modified silk fabric (PDA-Fe-SF) had an outstanding hydrophobicity and...
Burn patients admitted to the hospital with concurrent intoxication are believed to be at an increased risk of poor outcomes and the development of complications, however data varies within the literature and remains controversial. This systematic review a...

I went to community college and finished with a 3.5 total (B's and C's in bio and ochem) for about 70 semester units. Proved a lot of people wrong and pulled off some impressive extracurriculars and went to a big name school (quarter system) and nailed my first quarter with straight A's--I was driven as hell. And then after that I hit depression like a wall, absolute crash and burn. I used to think depression was something lazy people talked about until it happened to me, I was a pretty...

Current 1st year. How many hours a day / week do you all study? And what do you all think is your limit after which you feel burnt out? I'm trying to find the right balance for this. Currently, I'll go hard for one exam but then get burnout and not care much about the exam later that week. Our curriculum has around 2 exams a week.
ConclusionRhabdomyolysis is an independent risk factor for early AKI and closely related to the severity of early AKI in critically ill burned patients. Although with a high incidence of early AKI in severely burned patients, most of them are mild. Early adequate fluid resuscitation, timely and effective escharotomy, reducing the incidence and severity of rhabdomyolysis, most of them can achieve a relatively good prognosis.
ConclusionThese findings suggest that Ag1+ may contribute to negative outcomes after burns, decreasing the primary defense mechanism (respiratory burst) and altering cytokine production.
