The biological processes during wound healing.

Regen Med 2021 04 31;16(4):373-390. Epub 2021 Mar 31.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery & Biomedical Engineering, Western Michigan University Homer Stryker MD School of Medicine, Kalamazoo, MI 49008, USA.

Numerous individuals suffer from impaired wound healing, such as chronic ulcers, severe burns and immune disorders, resulting in both public health and economic burdens. Skin is the first line of defense and the largest organ of the human body, however, an incomplete understanding of underlying cellular and molecular mechanisms of dermal repair leads to a lack of effective therapy for healing impaired wounds. There are strong clinical and social needs for improved therapeutic approaches to enhance endogenous tissue repair and regenerative capacity. Read More

Trans-calcaneal retrograde nailing for secondary-displaced traumatic ankle fractures in diabetics with insensate feet: a less-invasive salvage-arthrodesis technique.

Eur J Orthop Surg Traumatol 2021 Mar 9. Epub 2021 Mar 9.

Orthopedic and Traumatology Department, Faculty of Medicine, Tanta University, Tanta, Egypt.

Neuropeptide Substance P Enhances Skin Wound Healing In Vitro and In Vivo under Hypoxia.

Biomedicines 2021 Feb 22;9(2). Epub 2021 Feb 22.

Department of Biomedical Engineering, Rutgers, State University of New Jersey, 599 Taylor Road, Piscataway, NJ 08854, USA.

Pressure ulcers (PUs) or sores are a secondary complication of diabetic neuropathy and traumatic spinal cord injury (SCI). PUs tend to occur in soft tissues located around bony prominences and may heal slowly or not at all. A common mechanism underlying impaired healing of PUs may be dysfunction of the local neurovascular system including deficiency of essential neuropeptides, such as substance P (SP). Read More

PLoS Negl Trop Dis 2021 Feb 16;15(2):e0009180. Epub 2021 Feb 16.

Centre Pasteur du Cameroun, Yaounde, Cameroon.

Outbreaks of yaws-like ulcerative skin lesions in children are frequently reported in tropical and sub-tropical countries. The origin of these lesions might be primarily traumatic or infectious; in the latter case, Treponema pallidum subspecies pertenue, the yaws agent, and Haemophilus ducreyi, the agent of chancroid, are two of the pathogens commonly associated with the aetiology of skin ulcers. In this work, we investigated the presence of T. Read More

Dual Reconstruction of Lumbar and Gluteal Defects with Freestyle Propeller Flap and Muscle Flap.

Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open 2021 Jan 26;9(1):e3376. Epub 2021 Jan 26.

Faculty of Medicine, Department of Hand Surgery, Plastic Surgery and Burns, and Department of Biomedical and Clinical Sciences, Linköping University, Linköping, Sweden.

The reconstruction of complex tissue defects in the lumbar and gluteal areas is a surgical challenge. The use of freestyle perforator-based flaps has gained popularity in the reconstruction of these defects due to several advantages: versatility, minimal donor-site morbidity, and tension-free closure. The present study reports the outcome of using a dual coverage of lumbar and gluteal defects with a gluteus maximus rotation flap as a deep layer and a freestyle propeller perforator-based flap as a superficial layer.

J Endovasc Ther 2021 Apr 13;28(2):323-331. Epub 2021 Jan 13.

German Aortic Center Hamburg, Department of Vascular Medicine, University Heart & Vascular Center, Hamburg, Germany.

Cardiovascular societies have developed recommendations regarding the management of thoracic aortic diseases. While improvements in treatment have been observed during the past decade in regard to patient selection, thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) and associated techniques, and high-volume centralization, the broad expansion of TEVAR has raised considerations about its indications, appropriateness, limitations, and application. The aim of this systematic review was to assess the similarities and differences among current cardiovascular societies' guidelines for the management of thoracic aortic diseases. Read More

Oral epithelial reactive atypia/dysplasia: An underestimated true atypia/dysplasia?

Med Hypotheses 2020 Nov 26;144:110217. Epub 2020 Aug 26.

Oral Medicine Department, Facultad de Odontología, Universidad Nacional de Córdoba, Argentina.

Several clinical and histological features, usually associated with chronic inflammation could complexify the diagnosis of oral epithelial dysplasia (OED). These changes in response to inflammatory stimuli, or re-epithelialization events, are described as reactive epithelial atypia or dysplasia (REA/D). Within a REA/D scenario (for example in the edges of chronic traumatic ulcers), the diagnosis of OED could be challenging for oral pathologists due to an unfeasibility to accurate the true nature of that changes.

An Overview of Gastroduodenal Perforation.

Front Surg 2020 9;7:573901. Epub 2020 Nov 9.

Department of Surgery, Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Buea, Buea, Cameroon.

Gastroduodenal perforation may be spontaneous or traumatic and the majority of spontaneous perforation is due to peptic ulcer disease. Improved medical management of peptic ulceration has reduced the incidence of perforation, but still remains a common cause of peritonitis. The classic sub-diaphragmatic air on chest x-ray may be absent and computed tomography scan is a more sensitive investigation in the stable patient. Read More
