Environmental contamination of the Arctic has widely been used as a worldwide pollution marker. Various classes of organic pollutants such as pesticides, personal care products, PAHs, flame retardants, biomass burning markers, and many others emerging contaminants have been regularly detected in Arctic samples. Although numerous papers have been published reporting data from the Canadian, Danish, and Norwegian Arctic regions, the environmental situation in Russian Arctic remains mostly underreported. Snow analysis is known to be used for monitoring air pollution in the regions with cold climate in both short-term and long-term studies...

BACKGROUND: Stevens-Johnson Syndrome (SJS) and Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis (TEN) are mucocutaneous hypersensitivity reactions, usually to drugs or their metabolites. TEN is the most severe involving greater than 30% of the total body surface area (TBSA). Management of these patients usually benefits from a large multidisciplinary team for both wound and medical management. Treatment of these patients varies between centers and physicians and there is lack of a standardized treatment protocol in the medical literature...

Heterotopic ossification (HO), the pathological extraskeletal formation of bone, can arise from blast injuries, severe burns, orthopedic procedures and gain-of-function mutations in a component of the bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) signaling pathway, the ACVR1/ALK2 receptor serine-threonine (protein) kinase, causative of Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva (FOP). All three ALKs (-2, -3, -6) that play roles in bone morphogenesis contribute to trauma-induced HO, hence are well-validated pharmacological targets...

BACKGROUND There are few triage methods based on patient age and extent of burn. However, in case of mass casualties, age might be hard to define. Burn segregation in mass-casualty accidents requires an easy, fast, and effective method. Triage in burns should also segregate casualties requiring treatment in burn centers. The aim of this study was to create a proprietary segregation algorithm dedicated to mass-casualty incidents. MATERIAL AND METHODS A retrospective analysis of 939 burned patients admitted to the Clinical Department of Burns, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Military Institute of Medicine (MIM) in Warsaw and to the Center for the Treatment of Burns (CTB) in Siemianowice Śląskie in 2012 and 2013 was performed...

Gingival depigmentation is a periodontal plastic surgery procedure for the removal of pigmented gingiva. A gingival depigmentation procedure can be accomplished with the use of a laser; however, as described in this case report, laser burns can be associated with such a procedure, and if one occurs it must be subsequently managed. In this case, the patient presented with a large elliptical ulceration at the right maxillary premolar region. The underlying alveolar bone was exposed and the surrounding gingival margins were inflamed...

Primitive processing of e-waste potentially releases abundant organic contaminants to the environment, but the magnitudes and mechanisms remain to be adequately addressed. We conducted thermal treatment and open burning of typical e-wastes, i.e., plastics and printed circuit boards. Emission factors of the sum of 39 polybrominated diphenyl ethers (∑39PBDE) were 817-1.60×105 in thermal treatment and non-detected-9.14×104 ng g-1 in open burning. Airborne particles (87%) were the main carriers of PBDEs, followed by residual ashes (13%) and gaseous constituents (0...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Laser treatment of burns scars is considered by some providers to be standard of care. However, there is little evidence-based research as to the true benefit. A number of factors hinder evaluation of the benefit of laser treatment. These include significant heterogeneity in patient response and possible delayed effects from the laser treatment. Moreover, laser treatments are often provided sequentially using different types of equipment and settings, so there are effectively a large number of overall treatment options that need to be compared...

RATIONAL: Burns at the site of the return electrode (i.e., grounding pad) are possible effects of electrosurgery. Despite this knowledge, however, ignorance or negligence with regards to proper handling of the grounding pads still often occurs. Burn injuries can be easily prevented by taking the necessary precautions; thus, during plastic surgery, careful attention should to be paid. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 38-year-old female patient was admitted to our ward to be performed augmentation mammoplasty...

Hundred years ago, Sir Harold Gillies laid a foundation to the modern plastic surgery trying to reconstruct facial defects of severely disfigured soldiers of World War I. Some years later, Joseph Murray experimented with rejection of skin grafts aimed for treatment of burned patients who sustained their injuries on battlefields of World War II. In 1954, the acquired expertise and intensive research allowed him to perform the first successful kidney transplantation in the world at Peter Bent Brigham Hospital in Boston...
