Little is known about the effect of accessing an outdoor range on chicken welfare. We tracked individual ranging behavior of 538 mixed-sex Ross 308 chickens on a commercial farm across 4 flocks in winter and summer. Before range access, at 17 to 19 d of age, and post-range access, at 30 to 33 and 42 to 46 d of age in winter and summer flocks respectively, welfare indicators were measured on chickens (pre-range: winter N = 292; summer N = 280; post-range: winter N = 131; summer N = 140), including weight, gait score, dermatitis and plumage condition...

BACKGROUND: Currently, an estimated 7.9 million US adults use electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS). Although published reports have identified fires and explosions related to use of ENDS since 2009, these reports do not provide national estimates of burn injuries associated with ENDS batteries in the US. FINDINGS: We analyzed nationally representative data provided in the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System (NEISS) to estimate the number of US emergency department (ED) visits for burn injuries associated with ENDS batteries...

Objective: To identify genetic differences among siblings with a family history of idiopathic transverse myelitis (ITM). Methods: We compared whole-exome sequencing (WES) on germline samples from the 2 affected sisters with ITM with 3 of their healthy siblings. Results: The 2 sisters with ITM both had acute onset of sensory loss in the legs, weakness, and bowel/bladder dysfunction. The first developed ITM at age 15 years with a clinical nadir of complete paralysis, which slowly recovered over a few years...

A 71-year-old woman presented with pink to violaceous, flat-topped, polygonal papules on the volar wrists, extensor elbows, and bilateral lower legs of 3 years' duration. She also had erythematous, violaceous, infiltrated plaques with microvesiculation on the bilateral thighs of several months' duration. She reported pruritus, burning, and discomfort. Her medical history included type 2 diabetes mellitus, hypertension, and asthma with no history of skin rashes. Workup revealed lichen planus pemphigoides (LPP), a rare papulosquamous and vesiculobullous dermatosis that shares features of both lichen planus (LP) and bullous pemphigoid (BP)...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the shrinkage rate, symptom relief and improvement of the quality of life following ultrasound-guided high intensity focussed ultrasound (USgHIFU) for multiple uterine fibroids. METHODS: From October 2015 to November 2016, 81 black women with multiple symptomatic fibroids underwent USgHIFU. The number of the fibroids ranged from 3 to 9. The shrinkage rate of fibroids, symptom severity score and quality of life were evaluated following USgHIFU...

AIM: To investigate whether the amount and distribution of lean body mass and fat mass is associated with disease severity in adults with Charcot-Marie Tooth. METHODS: Ten participants (age 46 ± 13 y, height 1.7 ± 0.1 m, and body mass 77 ± 17 kg) with Charcot-Marie Tooth disease were involved in this study. Participants were evaluated for quality of life, falls efficacy, balance, mobility, muscle strength, and power. Body composition was measured using dual energy x-ray absorptiometry...

BACKGROUND AND IMPORTANCE: An adult patient was referred to our department for tethered cord syndrome. A lumbar magnetic resonance imaging showed a conus medullaris at the S2 level and the caudal part of the dural sac at the S3 level. We present a minimally invasive spine surgery procedure at the hiatus level for the treatment of tethered cord syndrome by the surgical section of the filum terminale externum, which avoids bone demolition. CLINICAL PRESENTATION: A 65-yr-old Caucasian man was referred for dysesthesia and a burning sensation in his lower limbs, which was both spontaneous and triggered by contact with his clothes...

The contribution of central command to the peripheral vasoconstrictor response during exercise has been investigated using primarily handgrip exercise. The purpose of the present study was to compare muscle sympathetic nerve activity (MSNA) responses during passive (involuntary) and active (voluntary) zero-load cycling to gain insights into the effects of central command on sympathetic outflow during dynamic exercise. Hemodynamic measurements and contralateral leg MSNA (microneurography) data were collected in 18 young healthy participants at rest and during 2 min of passive and active zero-load one-legged cycling...

A 63-year-old Caucasian female patient presented with redness of the both foot and lower legs, as well as edema of the left lower leg, accompanied by subjective complaints of burning. Fever was not reported. Well-circumscribed oval shaped tumor formation was revealed also on the abdominal wall, with hyperpigmented and depigmented areas on its ulcerated surface, measuring approximately 10/10cm in diameter, with soft-elastic texture on palpation. The lesion occurred in 2011, according to the patient's history...

Electrocution fatality cases are difficult to investigate. High-voltage electrocution burns resemble burns caused by other sources, especially if the person survives for few days. In that case, circumstantial evidence if correlated with the autopsy findings helps in determining the cause and manner of death. In addition, the crime scene findings also help to explain the pattern of injuries observed at autopsy. A farmer came in contact with a high-voltage transmission wire and sustained superficial to deep burns over his body...

Spinal cord stimulators have commonly been used to treat multiple pain conditions. This case report represents a unique case of using multiple spinal cord stimulators for widespread small fiber neuropathy pain. This case report concerns patient JJ who first presented with generalized neuropathic pain. His pain was an intermittent burning, stinging quality that originally focused in both of his feet and progressed to include his legs and arms and eventually involved his entire body. The pain would last moments to hours at least daily...

Integra dermal regeneration template has been well established in treating deep extensive burns, but there are very few cases reported of treating large full-thickness skin defects such as giant nevi. Apart from psychological and cosmetic burdens, the giant congenital nevus carries increased risk of malignant alteration. We present the case of a 9-year-old girl with a giant congenital nevus on her left lower leg. A total excision was done and she was successfully treated with Integra (LifeSciences Corp, Plainsboro, NJ)...

BACKGROUND: Recommendations have been proposed for minimum aerobic fitness among firefighters but it is unclear if those criteria relate to performance on the fireground. Less fit individuals fatigue more quickly than fit individuals when working at comparable intensity and may have gait changes, increasing risk of falls. We evaluated the effect of fatigue during a live burn evolution on gait parameters and functional balance comparing them to aerobic fitness levels. METHODS: A total of 24 firefighters had gait and balance tested before and after a live burn evolution...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to determine the wound healing effects of Acapsil, a white, odorless powder based on micropore particle technology (MPPT) (Willingsford Ltd, Southampton, UK) by comparing it to Gentaxane (Gentaksan, Borshchagovsky CCP, Kyiv, Ukraine) (polydimethylsiloxane powder with gentamicin antibiotic) and Ioddicerin (Farmak, Kyiv, Ukraine) (iodine with dimethyl sulfoxide [DMSO]). MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study included 266 patients with primarily trophic ulcers caused by pancreatic diabetes and venous insufficiency of the lower extremities, carbuncles, phlegmons, infected third- or fourth-degree heat burns, and infiltrations of postoperative wounds...

Restless legs syndrome (RLS) typically affects the limbs, but the involvement of other body parts has also been reported. In this essay, we critically review all literature reports of atypical RLS cases with unusual localizations. Applying the updated diagnostic criteria of the International restless legs syndrome study group (IRLSSG), which also consider symptoms localized outside of the lower limbs, a few of these atypical cases reported in the previous literature resulted in a definitive diagnosis of RLS...

A 23 year-old man was admitted to the hospital with chief complaints of pain, edema and spasm of the left lower limb, as well as mottling of dorsal and plantar aspects of the foot.  One week before the current admission, he was treated with oral co-amoxiclave and intramuscular penicillin 6.3.3. Immediately after the third injection, he experienced burning and yellowish discoloration at the site of the injection wich then progressed to his leg and foot. Pain, significant edema, spasm and mottling occurred within 30 minutes of the injection...
