Objective of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of the autolytic debridement promoted by hydrogel with sodium alginate enriched with fatty acids and vitamins A and E in the healing of foot wounds in diabetic patients. A clinical study was conducted at an outpatient clinic of medical specialties. The sample comprised 8 patients supervised for a 3-month period, from April to July 2017, by means of a clinical history, photographic record, planimetry, and classification of the wound severity by the Pressure Ulcer Scale for Healing (PUSH) system...

We present the case of a 67-year-old man suffering from a squamous cell carcinoma with extensive thoracic locoregional affection measuring 28 cm. After being considered inoperable at another center, he underwent an aggressive tumor resection and coverage with a free latissimus dorsi flap as a palliative reconstructive procedure that allowed for a considerable improvement of his quality of life.

Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) is a disease that causes skin exfoliative lesions, characterized by fever, necrosis, and epidermal detachment. Biological skin substitutes may be considered interesting options for the treatment of this disease. This study aims at identifying in the literature the evidence on the current role of these biomaterials in the treatment of SJS and its related diseases. A systematic review with a search period between 2003 and 2017 was carried out, consulting the Lilacs, BVS, and PubMed databases...

Children with cleft lip and/or palate (CL ± P) undergo several surgical procedures from birth to adulthood to achieve functional, aesthetic, and psychosocial normalcy. Although children with CL ± P have normal physical development apart from their CL ± P, they face increased risk for emotional, social, behavioral, and academic concerns. In this article, we discuss how the psychology team helps support children with CL ± P and their families. We also explore how the child's overall functioning is evaluated through interview and assessment tools...

With the increasing interest in nonsurgical cosmetic procedures, this research study sought to evaluate the onset of Botulinum toxin Type A (BoNTA) between naive and non-naive consumers and its effect on satisfaction. This single-blinded research study consisted of 15 adults with scheduled appointments for neurotoxin treatment of undesired glabellar lines. Participants completed pretreatment FACE-Q scales. Both the participant and the researcher rated pretreated glabellar lines with the Merz 5-point scale. Daily photographs of the treated area were taken by the participant and submitted to the researcher over a secure electronic system...

The use of compressive adhesive bandages is widely extended in the field of plastic, aesthetic, and reconstructive surgery, and the apparition of skin damage after its removal is a relatively frequent complication. The aim of this study was to evaluate the capacity of an aerosol plastic dressing for protecting the skin from the apparition of damage caused by adhesive dressings. A prospective, randomized, simple-blind study was performed, evaluating skin damage incidence after removal of adhesive compressive bandages in 80 subjects...

Sickle cell disease is an autosomal recessive genetic disorder that affects the shape and function of red blood cells, causing a myriad of systemic complications. Rigid and deformed red blood cells can become trapped in the microvascular circulation, causing tissue ischemia and severe pain. Skin ulcerations of the lower extremities present a unique challenge for patients suffering from this condition. This case study discusses the pathophysiology of these ulcers, treatment options, and a patient case.

In this article, we describe the case of a patient suffering from labial avulsion after a human bite, initially treated with direct closure and reconstructed surgically later on. Also, a brief summary of existent recommendations in scientific literature about the management of bite wounds is provided.

In this study, absorption capacity of the most commonly used types of wound dressings was measured with an objective, quantifiable, and easily reproducible method. The use of objective measurements allowed us to perform an objective comparison of the capacity of the different types of dressings. An experimental study was performed, in which the absorptive capacity of polyurethane foams, alginate, hidrofiber, and hydrocolloid dressings was measured by using a methodology designed by the researchers. Polyurethane foams showed a higher absorption capacity than hidrofibers, alginates, and hydrocolloids when using a similar surface of dressing...

This was a pilot study to examine pre- and postoperative stress experienced by women who were undergoing autologous breast reconstruction and how stress might impact wound healing, specifically examining cytokines and other chemical mediators in the wound environment. A nonexperimental descriptive design over time was utilized. Participants were women who were undergoing autologous abdominal breast reconstruction for breast cancer (N = 20). Data were collected preoperatively and at 24, 48, 72, and 96 hr postsurgery...

In rhinoplasty, one of the most popular aesthetic surgical procedures worldwide, several different techniques are utilized when performing a rhinoplasty procedure. Many complications can arise postoperatively depending on the surgical approach and technique utilized. A method to reduce immediate postoperative complications has been identified. The use of different colored nasal splints for various surgical procedures could assist in identifying high-risk patients to the postsurgical recovery team and the clinical staff...

Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a painful and debilitating, chronic inflammatory disease affecting the skin bearing apocrine glands. HS causes painful abscesses and nodules that can eventually progress to interconnected sinus tracts, scarring, and contractures of the skin. There is no definitive cure for HS, but multiple treatment strategies are available to patients. Treatments range from meticulous hygiene of the affected area to wide surgical excision of all involved tissue. This case study discusses the pathophysiology of the disease, severity staging, treatment options, and a patient case...
