The purpose of this review is to summarise the commonly used formulae for fluid resuscitation in major burns and to discuss the controversy surrounding the use of protein-based colloids as a component of these types of formulae. Fluid resuscitation in major burns is one of the most critical steps in managing this type of injury. In practice, a wide variety(More)
BACKGROUND The use of suctioned fat grafts for correction of soft tissue defects is a widespread procedure in esthetic and reconstructive surgery. The main disadvantage of this simple and sensible procedure is the unpredictable absorption rate of the fat graft. A lot of research has been performed aiming for enhancement of the take of the fat grafts. (More)
Clinical guidelines usually need to be adapted to fit local practice before they can be actually used by clinicians. Reasons for adaptation include variations of institution setting such as type of practice and location, availability of resources, difference of patient populations, local policies, and practice patterns. When a guideline is implemented for(More)

Twenty-seven late larval or early pupal lethal mutations were isolated for the X-chromosome, some of which showed structural and/or functional deficiencies of the imaginal discs. The mutants were grouped according to the size and morphology of their discs as follows: 1. discs normal: 18 mutants. 2. discs small: 2 mutants. 3. discs degenerate: 4 mutants. 4.(More)
Metabolic syndrome (MS) or insulin resistance syndrome is the result of multiple metabolic abnormalities associated with cardiovascular disease. Since 1988, when Reaven first described MS, many researches have been conducted in order to understand its pathophysiology, epidemiology, prognostic implications and therapeutic strategies. Numerous metabolic(More)
Fourteen 7-alkoxy-2,2-dimethychromenes were synthetized and studied in JH competition experiments: precocenes (Ps) PI and PII, and synthetic analogs (PAs) including (i) three with both antiallatal and P-like activities: 7-ethoxy-PII (7-EPII); 7-(prop-2-ynyloxy)-2,-2-dimethylchromene (PPI); and 6-methoxy-7-(prop-2-ynyloxy)-2,2-dimethylchromene (PPIII); (ii)(More)
Recently, lasers and light systems are used more for the treatment of vascular lesions due to their noninvasiveness, ease of use, and short recovery time. This side-by-side prospective study compares results, satisfaction, and complications after intense pulsed light (IPL) and Nd:Yag laser treatment of small vascular lesions. Twenty-five patients with(More)
Precocenes (PI and PII) and 114 of their analogs (PAs) were synthetized and tested on C. remanei embryos for their precocene-like (P-like) activities resulting in unusual development at sublethal doses. The P-like activity was quantitated by plotting the probit of the percentage of the developmentally affected survivors against the (log) dose to obtain the(More)
BACKGROUND Scleroderma is characterized by abnormal growth of connective tissue, often manifested with hard and tight skin. The viscous properties of the skin are impaired, and the main histologic changes include a thicker dermis, absence of pilosebaceous units, and a decreased space between collagen bundles. Often these patients have wound healing(More)
