Functional reconstruction for severe heat press injury of the proper digits using immediate preserved subdermal vascular network (PSVN) skin graft: A case report.

J Burn Care Res 2022 Jun 16. Epub 2022 Jun 16.

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Kansai Medical University, Osaka, Japan.

The patient was a 57-year-old woman who suffered third-degree burns to the dorsal side of her left fingers (non-dominant hand) when it was caught in a press machine heated to 200°C while she was cleaning clothes. At 20 hours after the injury, the necrotic tissue was excised and covered with a preserved subdermal vascular network (PSVN) skin graft, which allowed the patient to regain a very good hand function. Even for severe heat press injuries of the hand, the combination of immediate surgical intervention, a thick skin graft with PSVN, and early rehabilitation from the first postoperative week leads to good functional and cosmetic reconstruction outcomes.

J Burn Care Res 2022 May 26. Epub 2022 May 26.

McGill University, Montréal, Quebec, Canada.

This Clinical Practice Guideline addresses early mobilization and rehabilitation (EMR) of critically ill adult burn patients in an intensive care unit (ICU) setting. We defined EMR as any systematic or protocolized intervention that could include muscle activation, active exercises in bed, active resistance exercises, active side-to-side turning, or mobilization to sitting at the bedside, standing, or walking, including mobilization using assistance with hoists or tilt tables, which was initiated within at least 14 days of injury, while the patient was still in an ICU setting. After developing relevant PICO (Population, Intervention, Comparator, Outcomes) questions, a comprehensive literature search was conducted with the help of a professional medical librarian.

A Rapid Protocol for Direct Isolation of Osteoclast Lineage Cells from Mouse Bone Marrow.

Bio Protoc 2022 Mar 5;12(5):e4338. Epub 2022 Mar 5.

Law Sau Fai Institute for Advancing Translational Medicine in Bone and Joint Diseases, School of Chinese Medicine, Hong Kong Baptist University, Hong Kong SAR, China.

Osteoclast lineage cells (OLCs), including osteoclast precursors (OCPs) and mature osteoclasts (MOCs), participate in bone remodeling and mediate pathologic bone loss. Thus, it is essential to obtain OLCs for exploring their molecular features in both physiological and pathological conditions . However, the conventional protocols for obtaining OLCs are not only time-consuming, but also unable to capture the cellular status of OLCs . Read More

Evaluation of the implementation of a speech and language therapist-led referring model for VFSS using the Consolidated Framework for Implementation Research (CFIR).

Int J Lang Commun Disord 2022 May 17. Epub 2022 May 17.

Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital, Metro North Hospital and Health Service, Herston, QLD, Australia.

Background: Speech and language therapists (SLTs) use videofluoroscopic swallow study (VFSS) results to manage dysphagia. Yet, in some services only doctors can directly request a VFSS, potentially creating workflow inefficiencies and delaying patient access to VFSS. An alternative model, where SLTs directly refer patients for VFSS, is used in many services in the UK and Australia. Read More
