BACKGROUND: Skin wound healing involves complex coordinated interactions of cells, tissues and mediators. Maintaining microvascular barrier integrity is one of the key events for endothelial homeostasis during wound healing. Vasodilation is observed after vasoconstriction, which causes blood vessels to become porous, facilitates leukocyte infiltration and aids angiogenesis at the wound-area, post-injury. Eventually, vessel integrity has to be re-established for vascular maturation. Numerous studies have found that granulocyte macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) accelerates wound healing by inducing recruitment of repair cells into the injury area and releases of cytokines...

BACKGROUND: Digit tourniquets are widely used in the operating room and even more often in the emergency department to allow the exploration of injuries. A rolled surgical glove finger or silicone catheter placed at the base of the digit is a common method. However, rolled glove tourniquets are easily forgotten under the dressing and may then cause ischaemia, which may require amputation. Silicone catheters are expensive single-use devices that may fail to provide effective exsanguination and must be removed by cutting, which may result in skin lesions...

Skin tightening is one of the cornerstones of skin rejuvenation and is defined as the improvement of skin laxity and crepiness of the skin. There are several energy-based devices that can produce significant skin tightening without surgery, both on and off the face. The mechanisms of skin tightening involve collagen denaturation resulting in collagen shrinkage and tissue tightening, and the wound healing response that generates new collagen and elastin. These hypothesized mechanisms of skin contraction leading to clinical skin tightening have been derived from histological, immunohistochemical, and electron microscope analysis, as well as in vitro and in vivo experiments...

The development of fractional photothermolysis has revolutionized the treatment of skin scarring, rejuvenation, and tightening. By creating targeted microthermal zones and leaving surrounding tissue intact, this concept has provided the field with efficacious results, with less downtime and a better safety profile. This has started to change the paradigm of what is considered first-line treatment for scarring and rejuvenation. While originally applied to nonablative lasers, fractionation has now been employed in ablative, quality-switched, picosecond, and novel hybrid fractional lasers...

Background: Skin aging is accelerated by multiple extrinsic factors: ultraviolet radiation, smoking and pollution increase oxidative activity, damaging cellular and extracellular components such as DNA, proteins, and lipids. With age, collagen and hyaluronic acid levels decline, resulting in loss of elasticity and moisture of the skin. Over time this damage leads to characteristic signs that make the skin look older: altered facial contour, sagging skin, wrinkles, and an uneven complexion...

Skin laxity is a common cosmetic concern in middle-aged women. High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is one of noninvasive modalities that provides safe and effective improvement in skin laxity and tightening with minimal adverse effects. Concerning an extensive use of HIFU for facial rejuvenation, dermatologists should be aware of potential adverse effects of HIFU treatment. We herein present a case of 33-year-old Thai female with facial nerve injury after HIFU treatment for skin laxity.

REVIEW
R Thiesmann
Blepharoplasty is one of the most frequently performed plastic cosmetic interventions. For this purpose the CO2 laser is an instrument that can be used as a laser scalpel to cut as well as in its ablative function to remove skin irregularities, such as scars and tumors and also to treat changes of the skin due to aging. Fractionated laser irradiation reduces the duration of skin redness and the postoperative rehabilitation time after a resurfacing. The advantages of the CO2 laser are a gentle intraoperative preparation and less postoperative swelling due to an additional cauterization of blood vessels...

Low transverse sacral fractures are rare, with only two published reports regarding their surgery. The complication associated with surgery for sacral fractures is the prominence of implants. In addition, screw fixation below S3 is impractical. We performed posterior sacral fixation using S2 alar iliac (S2AI) screws and sacral sublaminar wires for low transverse sacral fractures. Case 1 was 65-year-old male with an S2-3 transverse sacral fracture. We performed laminectomy (S2-3) and passed ultrahigh molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) cables from laminectomy area to the third posterior sacral foramina...
