Continuous transfixion suture before the excision of scalp tumors in patients with high risk of hemorrhage
Scalp  surgeries can be complicated by intra- or postoperative hemorrhage, given that the scalp is an area with high blood supply. We daily perform surgical procedures in patients who require anticoagulation. In general, the risk-benefit balance indicates that anticoagulation should not be withdrawn befo re skin surgeries. Although severe hemorrhages rarely occur, intraoperative bleeding can be annoying for the surgeon, and postoperative hemorrhage is usually an unpleasant inconvenience for the patient.

Isolated Nail Lichen Planus – an expert consensus on treatment of the classical form
Lichen planus is a benign inflammatory disorder of unknown etiology that may affect the skin, mucosae, scalp and nails. When the nails are affected, it may lead to permanent destruction with severe functional and psychosocial consequences. Therefore, prompt diagnosis and early treatment are essential, even in mild cases. There are currently no guidelines for the management of nail lichen planus and the published literature on treatment is limited. The aim of this paper is then to provide practical management recommendations for the classical form of nail lichen planus, especially when restricted to the nails. (Source: Jour...

SURGICAL PEARL: Use of Ultrasound Gel to increase efficacy of cryotherapy in treatment of warts
Warts are benign tumors which commonly involve the skin and other epithelial tissues, caused by human papilloma virus infection. Treatment of warts be difficult, although several treatment modalities are available. There is no single treatment which is 100% effective and different types of treatment may be combined. In recalcitrant warts, the treatment modalities available are cryotherapy, lasers, intralesional bleomycin and 5% imiquimod, if the lesions are few in number.
