Keloid formation is one of the most challenging clinical problems in wound healing. With increasing frequency of open heart surgery, chest keloid formations are not infrequent in the clinical practice. The numerous treatment methods including surgical excision, intralesional steroid injection, radiation therapy, laser therapy, silicone gel sheeting, and(More)
BACKGROUND Keloids are often resistant to treatment and have high recurrence rates. To the best of the authors' knowledge, however, there have been very few case reports related to foot keloids. The purpose of this retrospective case-series was to summarize the baseline characteristics of a cohort of patients, introduce our treatment regimen for the(More)
Keloid disorder (KD) is a fibroproliferative ailment of the cutaneous connective tissue secondary to dysregulation in various skin repair and healing processes. This disorder is characterized by excess collagen and/or glycoprotein depositions in the dermis. Age of onset of KD is not well documented. Based on clinical observations, various authors have(More)
there is no clear criteria for classification by size, classification into groups of 2 mm, 2-4 mm, and above 4 mm, or 3 mm, 3-6 mm, and above 6 mm is common. 2 mm and 3 mm have been found to be common sizes from these studies [1]. There is no absolute size of tori that indicates surgery, but the associated symptoms of growing tori can be an indication. The(More)
Acquired resistance to lapatinib is a highly problematic clinical barrier that has to be overcome for a successful cancer treatment. Despite efforts to determine the mechanisms underlying acquired lapatinib resistance (ALR), no definitive genetic factors have been reported to be solely responsible for the acquired resistance in breast cancer. Therefore, we(More)
Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans is an uncommon locally aggressive malignant neoplasm that most frequently appears in the trunk, followed by the extremities, head, and neck. But occurrence in the breast is extremely rare. We present a case of a 28-year-old woman, who had a history of trauma 5 years previously and excision 1 year before presentation at our(More)
BACKGROUND We aimed to determine whether early statin use following recanalization therapy improves the functional outcome of ischemic stroke. METHODS Using a prospective stroke registry database, we identified a consecutive 337 patients within 6 h of onset who had symptomatic stenosis or occlusion of major cerebral arteries and received recanalization(More)
BACKGROUND Agent Orange (AO) is the code name for one of the herbicides and defoliants used in the Vietnam War. Studies conducted thus far show a significant correlation between AO and the occurrence of cardiovascular diseases. But there is little data on the association between AO and stroke, and limited studies have targeted patient groups exposed to AO.(More)
Acquired erlotinib resistance (AER) during cancer treatment remains a major clinical challenge that results in the recurrence and metastasis of cancers. Therefore, we sought to identify differentially expressed genes (DEGs) by performing a meta-analysis of AER-related microarray datasets and discover biomarkers by conducting a systemic in-silico analysis.(More)
