The use of silver nitrate for chronic wounds such as leg ulcers, as well as burns and acute wounds has already been described in literature. However there is currently conflicting evidence in the literature to support the use of silver nitrate. We present our experience on two cases with extensive co-morbidities associated, where the use of silver nitrate(More)
Nowadays, one of the most dynamic areas in applied ethics is professional ethics (e.g. in the areas of medicine, business and engineering). In this paper, we will focus on the online teaching of professional ethics to undergraduate engineering students, mainly in the specialty of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). More specifically, the(More)
A microsurgical latissimus dorsi flap was performed for resurfacing a large soft tissue defect of the forearm with exposure of the vital structures and contaminated wound. Early coverage of a defect is a generally accepted concept to achieve a better functional result. The authors present a case report where a free latissimus dorsi flap with subsequent(More)

The excursion of the flexor tendons of the thumb and fingers was studied in ten fresh cadaveric upper limbs. For each centimetre of tendon movement, obtained by traction of the flexor tendons at the wrist, the angular changes of the digital articulations were measured; movement started at extension and proceeded to maximum flexion. A further five upper(More)
