The treatment of diabetic wounds is a formidable clinical challenge. In this study, lentiviral vectors carrying the human platelet-derived growth factor B (PDGF-B) gene were used to treated diabetic mouse wounds. Full-thickness 2.0-cm x 2.0-cm excisional wounds were created on the dorsa of genetically diabetic C57BL/KsJ-m+/+Lepr(db) mice. Lentiviral vectors(More)
The authors describe the internal cranial expansion (ICE) procedure, a surgical technique that was used to treat two chronically shunt-treated children who presented with medically and surgically refractory intracranial hypertension despite the presence of functioning cerebrospinal fluid shunt systems. The ICE procedure was used as a means to increase(More)
