Background In patients with lower limbs wounds from vasculitis reconstructive surgery with skin grafts can be considered, but this treatment likely fails because of the position, width, and depth of the lesion(s). In these patients a new therapeutic prospect is the use of a dermal matrix that stimulates the production of endogenous collagen before repair with skin graft autografting. Integra® is a semibiological implant consisting of a two-layered membrane that produces a histo-inductive… 

Acellular Dermal Matrix Used in Diabetic Foot Ulcers: Clinical Outcomes Supported by Biochemical and Histological Analyses

The surgical approach focused on the targeted use of the acellular dermal matrix has been integrated with biochemical and morphological/histological analyses to obtain evidence-based information on the mechanisms underlying tissue regeneration, leading to clinical evaluation of improved healing.



The Use of a Dermal Substitute and Thin Skin Grafts in the Cure of “Complex” Leg Ulcers

In this series, the use of this dermal matrix allowed for the complete refilling of the loss of tissue, the rapid disappearance of pain, and the rapid regeneration of a permanent dermis.

Local treatment of burns with honeycomb expanded polyurethane (ligasano).

This method of treatment can be used both for the medication of burns of limited extent but variable depth and as a mattress for patients confined to bed.

A prospective, open-label study to assess the clinical performance of a foam dressing in the management of chronic wounds.

Polyurethane foam dressings are used to help absorb wound exudate while maintaining a moist wound environment. To assess the clinical performance of a foam dressing, a prospective, open-label

Giant superficial basal cell carcinoma treated with cryosurgery.

A 55-year-old Caucasian male patient was seen in the authors' clinic for a large pruritic lesion on his chest, which slowly evolved over a period of 18 years, which was divided into several sections and treated monthly by cryosurgery with liquid nitrogen.

Postoperative complications after vulvectomy and inguinofemoral lymphadenectomy using separate incisions are documented to confirm relatively high rates of wound breakdown, infection, lymphocyst formation, and lymphedema even with separate groin incisions.

The application of two separate inguinal incisions after Hacker resulted in shortening the intrahospital postoperative period from 34.2 to 14 days and reduction of the rate of wound dehiscence and postoperative complications in the period following 1994.

Giant Retroperitoneal Sarcomas: A Single Institution Experience

The present study confirms the importance of aggressive surgical management for RS, in order to offer these patients the best chance of long-term survival, and assesses clinical and pathological factors affecting prognosis in patients with RS.
