Myeloid cells require gp130 signaling for protective anti-inflammatory functions during sepsis.

FASEB J 2019 Feb 6:fj201802118R. Epub 2019 Feb 6.

Department of Internal Medicine III, University Hospital Rheinisch-Westfälische Technische Hochschule (RWTH) Aachen, Aachen, Germany.

Sepsis represents a major health problem worldwide because of high mortality rates and cost-intensive therapy. Immunomodulatory strategies as a means of controlling overshooting inflammatory responses during sepsis have thus far not been effective, and there is a general paucity of new therapies. Regulatory immune cells have been shown to play important roles in limiting systemic inflammation. Read More

Rapid liquid biopsy for Mohs surgery: rare target cell separation from surgical margin lavage fluid with a high recovery rate and selectivity.

Lab Chip 2019 Jan 29. Epub 2019 Jan 29.

Institute of Microelectronics, Peking University, Beijing 100871, China. and National Key Laboratory of Science and Technology on Micro/Nano Fabrication, Beijing 100871, China.

In melanoma surgery, it is difficult to identify residual scattered tumor cells at the surgical margin because of invasive growth. Mohs surgery, widely applied to increase the cure rate and decrease the recurrence rate of melanoma, involves examination of the tissue for tumor cells after tissue removal. Here, we established a liquid biopsy platform for rapid (<5 h), sensitive examination of residual tumor cells at the margin after Mohs surgery using clinical samples from patients with pigment nevus for a demonstration.

Department of Dermatology, Tulane University, New Orleans, LA, USA.

The bacterium is responsible for significant morbidity, mortality, and financial burden in healthcare. It easily colonizes susceptible patients and can cause recurrent infections, especially in populations at risk. In addition to treating sequelae of infections, there is a growing body of literature aimed at decolonizing susceptible patients in order to prevent infection and also to prevent spread. Read More

Department of Dermatology, National Taiwan University Hospital and National Taiwan University College of Medicine, No. 7, Chung-Shan South Road, Taipei, 10002, Taiwan.

Intraoperative margin assessment of surgical tissues during cancer surgery is clinically important, especially in the case of tissue conserving surgery like Mohs micrographic surgery in which minimization of the surgical area is considered crucial. Frozen pathology is the gold standard of assessing excised tissues for signs of remaining cancerous lesions. The current protocol, however, is time-consuming and labor-intensive. Read More

Objective: The authors aim to discuss different types of internal eye shields as well as their indication, proper use, and potential complications.

Materials And Methods: The authors performed a literature search on PubMed with the keywords "internal eye shield," "corneal shield," "scleral shield," and "periorbital Mohs micrographic surgery" with no restriction on publication time frame due to the scarcity of relevant literature. Read More

Mohs micrographic surgery versus wide local excision for melanoma in situ: analysis of a nationwide database.

Int J Dermatol 2019 Jan 3. Epub 2019 Jan 3.

Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX, USA.

Background: With the rising incidence of melanoma in situ (MIS) or cutaneous melanoma, there is an increasing emphasis on the need to understand optimal treatment strategies. The current standard of surgical care is wide local excision (WLE). Alternative surgical techniques have been proposed including Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS). Read More

Facial Reconstruction After Mohs Surgery: A Critical Review of Defects Involving the Cheek, Forehead, and Perioral Region.

J Craniofac Surg 2018 Dec 14. Epub 2018 Dec 14.

Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA.

Facial defects following Mohs surgery can cause significant functional, cosmetic, and psychologic sequelae. Various techniques for nasal reconstruction after Mohs surgery have been analyzed in the medical literature, yet there has been less attention given to procedures for other crucial facial aesthetic regions. A literature search using PubMed, EMBASE, and ISI Web of Science for studies assessing reconstructive techniques of the forehead, cheek, and perioral regions after Mohs surgery was performed.

Margin-Controlled, Staged Surgical Excision in the Treatment of High-Risk Basal Cell Carcinomas of the Head and Neck Region.

J Cutan Med Surg 2018 Dec 17:1203475418820868. Epub 2018 Dec 17.

2 Department of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery, Marmara University School of Medicine, Istanbul, Turkey.

Background:: The most common skin cancer is basal cell carcinoma (BCC), and the gold-standard treatment for high-risk tumours is Mohs surgery. However, alternative methods are needed for high-risk tumours in countries where the performance rate of Mohs surgery is low.

Objectives:: The objective of this article is to investigate the feasibility, efficacy, and safety of margin-controlled, staged surgical excision (MCSSE) in high-risk tumours as a possible treatment alternative. Read More

Benefit of Mohs Micrographic Surgery Over Wide Local Excision for Melanoma of the Head and Neck: A Rational Approach to Treatment.

Dermatol Surg 2018 Dec 13. Epub 2018 Dec 13.

All authors are affiliated with the Department of Dermatology, University of Minnesota Medical School, Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Background: There are limited published data comparing wide local excision (WLE) with Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS) for the treatment of melanoma.

Objective: To describe a novel treatment algorithm for the surgical management of head and neck melanoma and compare rates of local recurrence for tumors treated with either MMS using immunohistochemistry or WLE.

Materials And Methods: A 10-year retrospective chart review including all in situ and invasive melanomas of the head and neck treated at one institution from January 2004 to June 2013. Read More
