Pyogenic flexor tenosynovitis (PFT) is a well known infectious condition of the hand, involving the inoculation of the flexor tendon sheath with microorganisms. Many cases have been reported, common causes including direct inoculation by a puncture wound and deep lacerations extending into the flexor tendon sheath. In this report, we present a case of a 50 year old female with PFT resulting from autophagia (consuming one's own body parts, in our case, fingers) successfully treated with irrigation and debridement, amputation of the index finger at the metacarpophalangeal joint and antibiotic therapy...

We present the case of a 91-year-old woman lived alone at her home with two domestic dogs, that is,, a Labrador Retriever and a Staffordshire Bull Terrier and found dead. The investigation of the scene revealed that the Bull Terrier's jawbone and chest were covered with blood. The autopsy revealed multiple, histologically confirmed, life-threatening skin and bone lacerations without scavenging marks. The punctures and tearing of each of the wounds on the skin were compatible with bites. A left humeral fracture and multiple fractures of the right facial bones were observed...

Back pain is a major health problem. The degenerative cascade of the spine begins in the intervertebral disc, due to an impairment in the blood supply through the vertebral endplates. Our objective was to develop a novel disc degeneration model based on these premises, akin to the process in humans, in contrast to other proposed models (puncture, enzyme injection, aberrant loads,…) Material and methods: 37 Sprague-Dawley rats, 2 arms: (a) histological (n = 17, one died), en- bloc sections, Van Gieson staining, (Nisimura-Mochida criteria) and also collagen VI staining (tissue oxidative stress), four animals were euthanized every 2 weeks (2-8); and (b) imaging (n = 20, six wound sloughs), MRI 9...

OBJECTIVES: Snakebite severity corresponds to size of snake because the amount of venom a snake injects is positively associated with snake size. Because fang marks are often present on snakebite patients, we tested whether the relationship between snake length and distance between fang puncture wounds can be generalized for rattlesnakes of genus Crotalus. METHODS: We measured 2 interfang distances from 79 rattlesnakes of both sexes, 5 species, and varying body length: 1) distance between fang bases in anesthetized snakes, and 2) distance between fang punctures in a membrane-covered beaker bitten defensively...

The aim of the present study was to determine the effectiveness of nonsurgical treatment for osteomyelitis of the hallucal sesamoids. Osteomyelitis of the hallucal sesamoids in young and healthy patients is rare and might originate from hematogenous spread or after a puncture wound. In diabetic patients with peripheral neuropathy, it often results from direct contiguous seeding from adjacent ulceration. The superiority of surgical versus nonsurgical therapy is still debated. In our institution, all patients presenting with osteomyelitis of the hallucal sesamoids are first treated nonsurgically but eventually usually require a surgical procedure...

Dog bite injuries are common and the head and neck is most frequently involved in pediatric patients. In severe cases, the combination of crushing, tearing, and puncturing can result in scalp avulsion. Currently, microsurgical replantation of the avulsed scalp remains the gold standard but may not always be possible. The authors present their treatment algorithm with 2 patient examples. In Patient 1, the scalp was deemed unsuitable for replantation due to extensive soft tissue injury; in Patient 2, the scalp was not available on presentation...

We present a case report of a traveller injured by a needlefish in the Caribbean. The needlefish leapt from the ocean and struck the traveller's face at high speed, causing a seemingly superficial puncture wound on his nose. Later, it became apparent that multiple fish bones had broken off and lodged in his nasal cavity, very narrowly missing his cribriform plate. Some bones were discharged spontaneously through his nose over the next 3 months, and one required surgical removal. Our report highlights the importance of urgent radiological examination in patients injured by needlefish, even if the external wound appears insignificant...

BACKGROUND: Lymphatic fistulas are common complications after lymph node dissections in melanoma patients. We investigated whether drain management could improve the patient's outcome. METHODS: Patients who underwent axillary or inguinal lymph node dissection (RALND or RILND) for malignant melanoma were recorded in a prospective database. Two different methods of drain management were compared. Either the drain was removed no later than the eighth postoperative day (period I, 2003-2007) or it was left in place until fluid flow was below 50 ml in 24 h for two consecutive days (period II, 2008-2011)...

INTRODUCTION: Cactus plants are commonly seen in arid southwestern regions of the United States. Due to their ready availability, they have become a popular houseplant. The spines or glochidia can easily puncture the skin with only minor pressure (ie, bumping or touching the cactus). Removal of the offending spine is difficult, even with tweezers. CASE: An 18-year-old woman initially self-removed the spines, and marked discomfort and intense erythematous reaction developed within 8 to 10 hours...

Two component injectable hydrogels that cross-link in situ have been used as noninvasive wound-filling devices, i.e., sealants. These materials carry a variety of functions at the wound sites, such as sealing leaks, ceasing unwanted bleeding, binding tissues together, and assisting in wound healing processes. However, commonly used sealants typically lack antibacterial properties. Since bacterial infection at the wound site is very common, bioadhesive materials with intrinsic antibacterial properties are urgently required...

BACKGROUND: Accurate positioning of a ventricle catheter is of utmost importance. Various techniques to ensure optimal positioning have been described. Commonly, after catheter placement, additional manipulation is necessary to connect a burr hole reservoir or shunt components. This manipulation can lead to accidental catheter dislocation and should be avoided. Here, we present a new technique that allows direct endoscopic insertion of a burr hole reservoir with an already mounted ventricle catheter...
