Frostbite: pathogenesis and treatment.
TLDR
Although the surgical management of frostbite involves delayed debridement 1 to 3 months after demarcation, recent improvements in radiologic assessment of tissue viability have led to the possibility of earlier surgical intervention. Expand
Scarring Occurs at a Critical Depth of Skin Injury: Precise Measurement in a Graduated Dermal Scratch in Human Volunteers
TLDR
The dermal scratch provides a well-tolerated, standardized, and reproducible wound model for investigating the healing response to dermal injury of different depths, and indicates that there is a threshold depth of Dermal injury at which scarring develops. Expand
Burn depth and its histological measurement.
TLDR
The technique was validated in a preliminary study of acute progressive microvascular damage in five adults with partial thickness burns and correlated well with the laser Doppler measurement of dermal blood flow and clinical estimation of burn depth. Expand
The influence of body mass index on burn surface area estimated from the area of the hand.
TLDR
It is found that mean HSA diminished significantly as BMI increased in both sexes (P<0.001), and this effect was, however, more pronounced in women, particularly those with a BMI greater than 31 kg/m(2) in whom the HSA represented only 0.64%. Expand
The Patient Outcomes of Surgery-Hand/Arm (Pos-Hand/Arm): A New Patient-Based Outcome Measure
TLDR
The Patient Outcomes of Surgery- hand/Arm (POS-Hand/Arm) is a new surgical outcome measure that can be used before and after surgery to evaluate and compare new techniques, surgical teams and units. Expand
Pretibial injuries in the elderly: a prospective trial of early mobilisation versus bed rest following surgical treatment.
TLDR
In a prospective, randomised trial comparing early mobilisation with the traditional method of a period of in-patient bed rest after surgical treatment, no statistically significant difference has been found in the percentage area of skin graft take at either 1 or 3 weeks postoperatively. Expand
The estimation of blood loss during burns surgery.
TLDR
In only five out of 46 procedures was there a need for late transfusion for an unacceptably low haemoglobin level (< 10 g/dl), which provides further empirical evidence for the clinical value of each member of the team voicing an estimate of the loss at the end of the procedure. Expand
Grip and Pinch Strength Variations in Different Types of Workers
TLDR
The occupation of the patient must be taken into account when using grip and pinch strength measurements to assess the need for rehabilitation and in medicolegal reports. Expand
The Patient Outcomes of Surgery-Head/Neck (POS-head/neck): a new patient-based outcome measure.
TLDR
The POS-Head/Neck is a new surgical outcome measure that can be used to evaluate outcomes in malignant and benign head/neck skin lesions before and after surgery is acceptable to patients and satisfies rigorous scientific criteria. Expand
