Non-healing wounds are a major global health concern and account for the majority of non-traumatic limb amputations worldwide. However, compared to standard care practices, few advanced therapeutics effectively resolve these injuries stemming from cardiovascular disease, aging, and diabetes-related vasculopathies. While matrix turnover is disrupted in these(More)
INTRODUCTION Extended endoscopic frontal sinusotomy is often required for surgical management of anterior skull base pathology. Such approaches are necessary for access to pathology and maintenance of postoperative frontal sinus outflow tract drainage. Cold steel instrumentation and endoscopic high-speed microdrills are typically used for bony removal(More)
LATE-PCR is an advanced form of non-symmetric PCR that efficiently generates single-stranded DNA which can readily be characterized at the end of amplification by hybridization to low-temperature fluorescent probes. We demonstrate here for the first time that monoplex and duplex LATE-PCR amplification and probe target hybridization can be carried out in(More)
INTRODUCTION Many different kinds of rhinologic biomaterials, both nonabsorbable and absorbable, have been developed over the years to improve outcomes following endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) for patients with chronic rhinosinusitis. In particular, these products have been designed to prevent postoperative bleeding, optimize the wound healing process, and(More)
Primary sarcomas of the trachea are rare occurrences that present with nonspecific symptoms, making timely diagnosis difficult. We report a case of primary fibrosarcoma of the trachea that presented with acute airway loss secondary to tracheal discontinuity due to tumor destruction. This unusual clinical presentation highlights the difficulties posed in the(More)
Nasal biomaterials have been developed to improve postoperative outcomes after functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS). These products have been designed to overcome certain common complications in FESS, and to maximize patient comfort. This article evaluates the performance of nonabsorbable and absorbable packing with respect to these outcomes. The(More)
