OBJECTIVES: Pressure ulcers impose a major lifetime medical problem to patients with high-grade spinal cord injury (SCI). For patients with stages 3-4 pressure ulcers, plastic surgery is often the only remaining treatment option. Despite considerable flap failure rates of around 30%, only sparse knowledge exists on predictors for flap failure. Hence, identification of predictors for flap failures is needed. METHODS: We prospectively enrolled 38 SCI patients with stages 3-4 pressure ulcers scheduled for plastic surgery...

OBJECTIVES: As a high-cost neurological disability, spinal cord injury (SCI) can result in permanent paralysis and loss of sensation. To identify the temporal genes involved in the pathogenesis of SCI, we analysed the expression profile of GSE45006. METHODS: GSE45006 was downloaded from Gene Expression Omnibus, including 20 SCI samples (samples at 1 day, 3 days, 1 week, 2 weeks and 8 weeks after injury, four repetitions for each time point) and 4 normal samples...
