Rehabilitation of the burnt hand.

[Rehabilitation of the burnt hand]. Handchir Mikrochir Plast Chir. 2019 Sep;51(5):394-400 Authors: Ziegenthaler H Abstract Injuries to the hands occur disproportionately more frequently in thermal accidents. The aim of ICF-oriented rehabilitation of burn injured hands is to return as much sensory and gripping functionality as possible or to develop everyday practical compensation mechanisms. Often the expectations of functionality and aesthetics for the burn injured are clouded by the clinical picture of edema, epithelial defects, contractures and hypertrophic scarring but, multimodal therapy options and interdisciplinary thinking are the means by which the rehab team can address and alleviate these concerns.

By SAURABH JHA, MD Slumdog TB No one knows who gave Rahul Roy tuberculosis.

Historically TB, or “consumption” as it was known, was a Bohemian malady; the chronic suffering produced a rhapsody which produced fine art. TB was fashionable in Victorian Britain...

Microbubble contrast agents were introduced more than 25 years ago with the objective of enhancing blood echoes and enabling diagnostic ultrasound to image the microcirculation. Cardiology and oncology waited anxiously for the fulfillment of that objective with one clinical application each: myocardial perfusion, tumor perfusion and angiogenesis imaging. What was necessary though at first was the scientific understanding of microbubble behavior in vivo and the development of imaging technology to deliver the original objective.
