Umbilical Cord Mesenchymal Stem Cells Combined With a Collagen-fibrin Double-layered Membrane Accelerates Wound Healing

Key words: 

Abstract: The aim of this study was to examine the effects of human umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells (hUCMSCs) in combination with a collagen-fibrin double-layered membrane on wound healing in mice. A collagen-fibrin double-layered membrane was prepared, and the surface properties of the support material were investigated using a scanning electron microscope. ...

Pyoderma Gangrenosum With Common Variable Immunodeficiency

Key words: 

    Abstract: Pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) is a rare ulcerative skin disease of unknown etiology. It can be seen on normal skin or secondary to traumas such as injections and biopsies. Half of reported cases are associated with systemic diseases such as arthritis, inflammatory bowel diseases, hematological disorders, hepatic disease, and necrotizing vasculitis....

Alteration of Biomechanical Properties of Skin During the Course of Healing of Partial-thickness Wounds

Key words: 

  Abstract: The incidence of partial-thickness wounds is high and, until recently, little was known about the alteration of the biomechanical properties of the skin in these wounds during the course of healing. The aim of this study was to demonstrate the biomechanical changes in skin elasticity. ...

Adhesive Skin Closure Technique for Closure of Fasciotomy Wounds in Pediatric Patients: A Case Series

Key words: 

  Abstract: Background. Closure of fasciotomy wounds poses a challenge, particularly in pediatric cardiac patients who are too high risk for general anesthesia and often require anticoagulant treatment. The adhesive skin closure technique enables wound closure without the need for a secondary procedure such as surgery requiring anesthesia....

Abstract: Charcot neuroarthropathy may occur in patients with peripheral neuropathy who do not notice pain while their bones and joints collapse or breakdown under the constant pressure of body weight. This can lead to ulcerations from severe deformity and potentially life-threatening infections. Current treatments vary from immobilization to extensive reconstructive surgical interventions.
