The objective of this study is to demonstrate that the use of this biological dressing for wound healing at the split-thickness skin graft (STSG) donor site, reduces the time to healing, decreases other co-morbidities, such as pain, and improves the appearance of the scar.This investigation will be conducted as part of a randomized study comparing our new biological dressing with a conventional treatment in a single patient, thus avoiding the factors that may influence the healing of a graft donor site.DiscussionThis clinical trial should enable the development of a new strategy for STSG donor-wound healing based on a rege...

We examined 9293 individuals from the Copenhagen General Population Study using nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy measurements of total cholesterol, free- and esterified cholesterol, triglycerides, phospholipids, and particle concentration. Fourteen subclasses of decreasing size and their lipid constituents were analysed: six subclasses were very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL), one intermediate-density lipoprotein (IDL), three low-density lipoprotein (LDL), and four subclasses were high-density lipoprotein (HDL). Remnant lipoproteins were VLDL and IDL combined. Mean nonfasting cholesterol concentration was 72Ô...

Also known as raspberries or strawberries, road rash wounds are a type of skin abrasion. Most road rash wounds are minor injuries that you can easily treat at home if you know the right steps to take. Here's your quick guide to road rash: Biking accidents are common causes of road rash. What is road rash? Caused by an unfortunate run-in with a rough surface, road rash occurs when a layer of skin is scraped away from the body. Road rash injuries commonly result from falls when biking, skateboarding or running outside. Severe injuries that rip away multiple layers of tissue may require skin grafting surgery to rep...

Conclusions The clinical trials discussed here, which include several trials investigating novel therapeutic targets, demonstrate that translational research in pemphigus and pemphigoid is a fast-growing field. We thus expect that several novel treatments will be shortly available for the treatment of pemphigus and pemphigoid patients. Given the high, and thus far unmet, medical need in this field (110), this is highly encouraging and will hopefully improve the quality of life of the affected patients. In addition to the compounds and targets described here, several new targets have been recently identified in preclinical...

Conclusion: Cast might have the highest probability of the most optimal choice for tibia shaft fracture in close cases, while reamed intramedullary nailing ranked second. Introduction The tibia is a large bone in the lower extremity other than the fibula. A tibia shaft fracture is the most common type of long bone fractures. According to vast clinical data, the causation of diaphyseal fractures of the tibia is usually grouped into two types, bending load and torsion (Johner and Wruhs, 1983). Bending load, led by direct impact injuries, generally of high-velocity trauma, like a car accident, is an increasing fracture ...

ConclusionThe outcome of repair of giant incisional hernia using FTSG as reinforcement is comparable with repair using synthetic mesh. This suggests that FTSG may have a future place in giant incisional hernia repair.

ConclusionNo difference was seen for the primary endpoint short-term surgical complication. Full-thickness skin graft appears to be a reliable material for ventral hernia repair producing no more complications than when using synthetic mesh. Patients repaired with a skin graft have less subjective abdominal wall symptoms.

Conclusion In this operation the grafted fibula was fold into a triangle according to actual need, which though not completely restores the tridimensional structure of the longitudinal, transverse arches of the lateral foot makes weight-bearing walking possible, besides, its appearance and function is satisfactory. Such an operation has overcome the shortage of non-tridimensional structure of the transverse arch etc. in traditional operations and it should be an ideal operation in repairing serious defects on the lateral forefoot through further improvement.
