INTRODUCTION: Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS) is successful and cost effective, but may be time consuming as patients are required to wait for final wound repair until margins are clear. We propose for selected cases the "Mohs and Close technique" (MCT), in which the defect is immediately repaired after tumor resection rather than waiting until margins are clear. METHODS: MCT was only performed on tumors that had clearly de ned borders, low risk histology, whose resulting defect after exci- sion required either a primary or partial closure, and whose repair wouldn't change to a different repair option if further stages of exci- sion were necessary...

BACKGROUND: Atypical fibroxanthoma (AFX) is a rare cutaneous spindled cell neoplasm. For both diagnostic and therapeutic purposes, it is important to distinguish AFX from other poorly differentiated tumors, including undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma (UPS). OBJECTIVE: The authors aimed to identify the clinical, histologic, and immunohistochemical expression of LN2, ezrin, and CD10 in AFX and UPS tumors. METHODS AND MATERIALS: The authors retrospectively examined the charts of patients with AFX and UPS treated with Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS) at 2 academic institutions...

 In clinical environments, difficulty in the uniform preparation of Mohs paste has been noted, due to variations in its physical properties, and despite preparations being based on the same prescriptions. Therefore, studies have been conducted to clarify the physicochemical phenomena influencing such variations, and then to develop a prescription design that will improve the usability of this product through the use of additives with sufficient safety, thereby addressing the above-mentioned demerit. An improved form of Mohs paste, not containing the starch that is responsible for the variations in physical properties, was developed in consideration of appropriate bases, and its pharmacological mechanisms were examined, with a focus on its hemostatic effects...

OBJECTIVE: Using surface-based morphometry we aimed to provide a detailed examination of cortical alterations in medication-overuse headache (MOH), by disentangling between altered cortical thickness and gyrification (folding). BACKGROUND: In MOH, pain modulation is probably dysfunctional at the cortical and subcortical level, resulting in a disequilibrium between pain inhibition and facilitation. Both increased and decreased cortical volumes have been reported in individuals with MOH...

Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) is an unusual spindle cell tumor with a high rate of local recurrence with traditional excision. Fortunately, Mohs micrographic surgery yields excellent cure rates for this neoplasm due to contiguous tumor spread and meticulous tumor mapping and margin analysis. We present the unique case of a patient treated with a modified Mohs technique with an analysis of the final margin with permanent sections, who developed a spindle cell neoplasm in the margins of her second stage excision consistent with nodular fasciitis...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: During liver inflammation, triggering fibrogenesis and carcinogenesis immune cells play a pivotal role. In the present study we investigated the role of CCL5 in human and in murine models of chronic liver inflammation leading to HCC development. METHODS: CCL5 expression and its receptors were studied in well-defined patients with chronic liver disease (CLD) and in two murine inflammation based HCC models. The role of CCL5 in inflammation, fibrosis, tumor initiation and progression was analyzed in different cell populations of NEMO(Δhepa)/CCL5(-/-) animals and after bone marrow transplantation (BMT)...

Worldwide, about 1-2% of the adult population suffers from chronic headache due to overuse of pain medication. Guidelines recommend acute withdrawal of medication, but the optimal treatment remains unknown. We aim to evaluate the benefit of treatments for patients with medication overuse headache (MOH). We performed an extensive literature search until November 2015, selecting randomized controlled trials that evaluated interventions for adults with MOH. Two authors assessed the eligible trials and extracted data...

Microcystic adnexal carcinoma (MAC) is a rare malignant cutaneous adenocarcinoma that typically occurs in the head and neck, particularly at the central face. There are only slightly more than 300 patients reported worldwide, and most patients occur in Caucasians. A 72-year-old man was referred to our hospital for definitive treatment of known MAC from previous biopsy. Wide excision of nasal tip and reconstruction of nasal defect with paramedian forehead flap and nasolabial flap transposition were performed rather than conventional Mohs surgery, due to grossly evident disease...

BACKGROUND: In many parts of the world, ongoing deficiencies in health systems compromise the delivery of health interventions. The World Health Organization (WHO) identified four functions that health systems need to perform to achieve their goals: Efforts to strengthen health systems focus on the way these functions are carried out. While a number of studies on health systems functions have been conducted, the stewardship function has received limited attention. In this article, we evaluate the extent to which the Botswana Ministry of Health (MoH) undertook its stewardship role...
