Background and study aims: Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) with endoscopic sphincterotomy (EST) for bile duct stone extraction has a major role in the treatment of cholangitis.Expand
The Role of Connexins in Wound Healing and Repair: Novel Therapeutic Approaches
Gap junctions are intercellular proteins responsible for mediating both electrical and biochemical coupling through the exchange of ions, second messengers and small metabolites. They consist of twoExpand
Chemical burns revisited: What is the most appropriate method of decontamination?
The purpose of this study is to investigate the efficacy of decontamination by immediate surgical debridement in the acute management of chemical burns as compared to conventional dilutionalExpand
Use of Intraoperative Indocyanine Green Videoangiography to Guide Cutaneous Angiosarcoma Excision
Summary: Complete excision of cutaneous angiosarcoma, which is a rare, vascular, and aggressive tumor, is challenging. Its multifocal nature and propensity for lateral spread make the grossExpand
Is the Target of 1 Day of Stay per 1% Total Body Surface Area Burned Achieved in Chemical Burns?
AbstractThe length of hospital stay (LOS) is a standard parameter used to reflect quality and evaluate outcomes in acute burn care. This study aims to assess whether the target of 1 day of stay perExpand
Vascularity and Thickness Changes in Immature Hypertrophic Scars Treated With a Pulsed Dye Laser.
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Growth of capillaries is an essential process after a dermal injury. An immature scar with robust growth of capillaries tends to be hypertrophic. Pulsed dye laser (PDL)Expand
