The history of tissue expansion, technique, indications, and complications are reviewed. A detailed review of delayed tissue expansion's histologic, biochemical, biomechanical, and physiologic changes in the skin is given. There is a net gain in epidermal tissue during delayed expansion. Recent experimental and clinical experience suggests that expansion(More)
A series of 4-[2-[bis(4-fluorophenyl)methoxy]ethylpiperidines were examined for their ability to bind to the dopamine transporter (DAT), the norepinephrine transporter, and the serotonin transporter (SERT). In particular, the role of the N-substituent on affinity and selectivity for the DAT was probed.(More)
A series of 4-[2-[bis(4-fluorophenyl)methoxy]ethyl-1-benzylpiperidines were examined for their ability to bind to the dopamine transporter (DAT), the serotonin transporter (SERT), and the norepinephrine transporter (NET). Binding results indicated that the presence of an electron-withdrawing group in the C(4)-position of the N-benzyl group is beneficial for(More)
Candida species are the most common cause of systemic fungal infections in patients with hematologic malignancies. These infections are aggressive with rapid dissemination to various organs. Cutaneous lesions occur in 10% to 13% of cases, whereas Candida arthritis occurs infrequently. This report describes the first case of disseminated candidiasis in a(More)
A series of 4-[2-[bis(4-fluorophenyl)methoxy]ethyl]-piperidines and 4-[2-[(bisphenyl)methoxy]ethyl]-piperidines with different types of substituents in the phenylpropyl side-chain were synthesized and examined for their ability to bind to the dopamine transporter (DAT), the serotonin transporter (SERT), and the norepinephrine transporter (NET). All of the(More)
