Gastroseal: A Novel Stent Design for the Management of Post-Bariatric Surgery Leaks.

ACG Case Rep J 2018 5;5:e85. Epub 2018 Dec 5.

Bariatric Surgery Unit, General Surgery Department, Cairo University Hospital, Cairo, Egypt.

Bariatric surgery leaks remain a dreaded complication with ominous consequences. Fully covered stents have shown efficacy in the treatment of leaks; however, stent migration remains a major drawback. Ultra-large stents have shown reduced rates of migration and coapt better against the walls, but deep ulcers occur in almost all patients, as well as frequent severe intolerance, bleeding, and perforation.

Ulcerated Lesions of the Oral Mucosa: Clinical and Histologic Review.

Head Neck Pathol 2019 Jan 31. Epub 2019 Jan 31.

Department of Diagnostic and Biomedical Sciences, University of Texas at Houston Health Science Center School of Dentistry, Houston, TX, USA.

Ulcerated lesions of the oral cavity have many underlying etiologic factors, most commonly infection, immune related, traumatic, or neoplastic. A detailed patient history is critical in assessing ulcerative oral lesions and should include a complete medical and medication history; whether an inciting or triggering trauma, condition, or medication can be identified; the length of time the lesion has been present; the frequency of episodes in recurrent cases; the presence or absence of pain; and the growth of the lesion over time. For multiple or recurrent lesions the presence or history of ulcers on the skin, genital areas, or eyes should be evaluated along with any accompanying systemic symptoms such as fever, arthritis, or other signs of underlying systemic disease.

Neuropathic diabetic foot ulcers treated with cerium dioxide nanoparticles: A case report.

Diabetes Metab Syndr 2019 Jan - Feb;13(1):228-234. Epub 2018 Aug 29.

Zabolotny Institute of Microbiology and Virology, National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, Zabolotny Str., 154, Kyiv, 03680, Ukraine; LCL "DIAPROF", Svitlycky Str., 35, Kyiv, 04123, Ukraine.

Wound healing in diabetes is frequently impaired and its treatment remains a challenge. The ability of topical application of cerium (Ce) dioxide nanoparticles (CNPs) to accelerate wound healing in an animal model provides a rationale to develop this technology for use in humans affected by traumatic injury, diabetes and burns. We first described a case report of successful topical treatment of neuropathic diabetic foot ulcers with novel gel containing CNPs. Read More

Association between thermal threshold abnormalities and peripheral artery disease in patients with type 2 diabetes.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Dec;97(51):e13803

Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism, Department of Internal Medicine, Taichung Veterans General Hospital.

Both diabetic peripheral neuropathy and peripheral arterial disease (PAD) cause foot ulcers and often result in non-traumatic amputations in patients with type 2 diabetes. This study aimed to evaluate the association between clinical variables, PAD, and subclinical diabetic small fiber peripheral neuropathy detected by abnormal thermal thresholds of the lower extremities in patients with type 2 diabetes.We investigated 725 consecutive patients with type 2 diabetes (male/female: 372/353; mean age, 67 ± 11 years) who did not have apparent cardiovascular disease (including coronary artery disease, arrhythmia, and stroke) and who underwent the quantitative sensory test for thermal (warm and cold) thresholds of the lower limbs and ankle-brachial index (ABI)/toe-brachial index (TBI) examinations in 2015.

The occurrence of diabetic foot ulcers and venous leg ulcers is increasing because of aging population trends as well as increases in the number of people with diabetes and obesity. New technologies have been developed to treat these conditions, whereas other technologies previously designed for burns and traumatic wounds have been adapted. This article reviews the development of selected skin replacement technologies, particularly cellular and tissue-based products, highlighting their effectiveness on diabetic foot ulcers, venous leg ulcers, and burns.

Application of a paste-type acellular dermal matrix for coverage of chronic ulcerative wounds.

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Sanggye Paik Hospital, Inje University School of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Background: Chronic wounds occur due to failure of the normal healing process, associated with a lack of deposition of cellular components and a suitable microenvironment such as the extracellular matrix (ECM). Acellular dermal matrix (ADM) is viewed as an ECM substitute, and a paste-type ADM has recently been introduced. We hypothesized that CGPaste, an injectable paste-type ADM, could serve as a scaffold and promote wound healing. Read More

Free flap and kickstand external fixator in foot and ankle soft tissue reconstruction. The versatility of a microsurgical-friendly application of an orthopedic device.

Injury 2018 Nov;49 Suppl 3:S105-S109

Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Department of Emergency and Organ Transplantation, University of Bari Aldo Moro, Bari, Italy.

Introduction: Foot and ankle are prone to injuries and often require free flap for complex soft tissue reconstruction due to the insufficiency of local soft tissue. Lower limb reconstruction can be commonly compromised by venous insufficiency, and the elevation of the limb represents a critical component of the postoperative care. This study aims to explore the versatility of combining free soft tissue flap reconstruction for complex foot and ankle defect with a temporary Kickstands External Fixator (KEF) placement. Read More

An electrochemically deposited collagen wound matrix combined with adipose-derived stem cells improves cutaneous wound healing in a mouse model of type 2 diabetes.

J Biomater Appl 2018 Oct;33(4):553-565

1 Southwest Research Institute, Department of Pharmaceuticals and Bioengineering, San Antonio, TX, USA.

Chronic wounds complicated by diabetes are a significant clinical issue, and their occurrence is expected to continue to rise due to an increased prevalence of diabetes mellitus, especially type 2 diabetes. Diabetic wounds frequently lead to nonhealing ulcers, and often eventually result in limb amputation due to the high risk of infection of the chronic wound. Here, we present a tissue-engineered treatment that combines a novel electrochemically deposited collagen wound matrix and human adipose-derived stem cells. Read More

Department of Vascular Surgery, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, School of Medicine, ATTIKON University Hospital, Athens, Greece.

The lifetime risk for diabetic patients to develop a diabetic foot ulcer (DFU) is 25%. In these patients, the risk of amputation is increased and the outcome deteriorates.More than 50% of non-traumatic lower-extremity amputations are related to DFU infections and 85% of all lower-extremity amputations in patients with diabetes are preceded by an ulcer; up to 70% of diabetic patients with a DFU-related amputation die within five years of their amputation.

BMJ Open 2018 Aug 10;8(8):e021556. Epub 2018 Aug 10.

Francis I. Proctor Foundation, University of California, San Francisco, San Francisco, California, USA.

Introduction: Corneal opacity is a leading cause of blindness worldwide. In resource-limited settings, untreated traumatic corneal abrasions may result in infection and ultimately, opacity. Although antimicrobial treatment of corneal ulcers may successfully cure infections, the scarring that accompanies the resolution of infection can still result in visual impairment. Read More

[Modern diagnostics and treatment of posttraumatic hydrocephalus].

Zh Vopr Neirokhir Im N N Burdenko 2018 ;82(3):81-87

Burdenko Neurosurgery Institute, 4-ya Tverskaya-Yamskaya Str., 16, Moscow, Russia, 125047.

One of the frequent consequences of severe traumatic brain injury is posttraumatic hydrocephalus that not only hampers the processes of consciousness recovery, rehabilitation, and social adaptation of patients but also is the cause of disability. Pathological processes underlying the clinical picture of posttraumatic hydrocephalus and the relationship between CSF circulation disorders and structural changes in the brain substance have not been adequately studied. Of particular importance are patients in the chronic vegetative or minimally conscious state, recovery from which is blocked by posttraumatic hydrocephalus. Read More
