Numerous uses of fibrin glue as a sealant, hemostatic agent, and adhesive have been reported. We developed a simple method of preparing autologous fibrin glue for skin-graft fixation. Fifty patients have undergone the autologous fibrin glue technique for trauma, burns, and difficult wounds. The mean area grafted was 237 cm2 (range 50 to 700 cm2), and grafts… (More)
Carpal tunnel compression syndrome caused by a retracted divided sublimus tendon has been presented. The case presented here represents another cause of carpal tunnel compression syndrome. With resection of the space-occupying retracted and scarred sublimis tendon, the symptoms of median nerve compression remitted. Considering the large volume of hand… (More)
Preexpansion scoring releases the inflexible galea, permitting more rapid expansion of the scalp. In addition, when comparing this procedure with conventional scalp expansion, patients reported less pain when the galea was incised prior to insertion of the tissue expanders.
Since modern tissue expansion was introduced in 1976, it has proved to be a safe and effective technique for obtaining extra tissue where traditionally distant flaps and grafts had been used. However, the lengthy expansion times and prolonged gross deformity of conventional expansion protocols have often deterred both physician and patient from choosing… (More)
In its widest sense, infrastructure allows us as finite individuals to achieve beyond our individual capacity to know, to do, to see. But even within the more narrow context of research infrastructures, broad and diverse definitions exist of how such an infrastructure should deliver these enhancements in knowledge and perspective. The Collaborative EuropeaN… (More)
