Capillary malformations (port-wine stains) are the most common vascular malformations occurring in 0.3% of live births. Most capillary malformations occur sporadically and present as a solitary lesion. Capillary malformations can also occur as a component of well-described syndromes. Familial occurrence of multiple capillary malformations has been described(More)
Arthroscopy has assumed an important place in wrist surgery. It requires specific operative skills that are now mainly acquired in the operating room. In other fields of endoscopic surgery, e-learning and virtual reality (VR) have introduced new perspectives in teaching skills. This leads to the following research question: Could the current way of teaching(More)
Metanocortins have various physiological actions on the brain. The recent cloning of neural melanecortin 0//(2) receptors Opened new avenues to study the effect of these ncuropeptides on the nervous system. We investigated the structure activity relations (SARs) of peptides derived from adrenecorticotropo hormone (ACrH) on cloned MC3, MC4 and MC5 receptors(More)
Treatment of port-wine stains (PWS) has developed from doing nothing, surgery, cryosurgery, tattoo, dermabrasia. X-ray irradiation, treatment with argon, CO2, Nd-Yag laser to treatment with pulsed dye laser. With the last one it is for the first time possible to treat children without risk of hypertrophic scarring. Since 1992 patients with PWS in the face,(More)
To determine which laser can be used for a vascular lesion, the different working mechanisms of the individual lasers must first be understood. The localization and diameter of the vessels to be treated define whether a certain laser is appropriate for that lesion. For teleangiectasias and port-wine stains the pulsed-dye laser works without scarring.(More)
Skin lesions are a presenting sign in fulminant meningococcal septic shock (FMSS). Maculopapular, petechial, ecchymotic lesions and purpura fulminans are related to disseminated intravascular coagulation following endotoxic shock. In order to gain insight into the presence, type, severity, localization, course, complications and follow-up of these skin(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the long-term cosmetic and oncologic results following early curettage of giant congenital melanocytic nevi (GCMN). Neonates with GCMN treated with curettage within 4 weeks of age and with a minimum follow-up of 2 years were evaluated at the outpatient department. Scar formation was evaluated by means of the patient(More)
