One-Stage Closure of Venous Ulcers with Matriderm and Split-Thickness Skin Grafts

1. Abstract Venous ulcers are important cause of chronic wounds with high hospitalization costs associated. Compression therapy alone, as the mainstay treatment, often fails to completely close large ulcers which require surgery. Bi-layered constructs of dermal matrix and split-thickness skin-graft are already widely used in burns, scar resurfacing, traumatic wounds and diabetic ulcer, but rarely …

Pleomorphic Adenoma of the Breast with Atypical Hyperplasia May Originate from Progenitor Cells: A Case Report and Review of the Literature

1. Abstract 1.1. Aims: Pleomorphic adenoma (PA) of the breast in association with severe atypical hyperplasia is exceedingly rare, and supports the opinion that breast PA is not always benign. We report a case of breast PA with severe atypical hyperplasia of squamous epithelium and discuss its histological origin, morphological characteristics, and biological behavior. Methods …

Upper Intestinal Gastrointestinal Bleeding from Fish Bone Foreign Body in The Pharynx: Radiological Study, Management and Removal of the Foreign Body

1. Clinical Image Fish Bone Foreign Body impaction in the upper aerodigestive tract is a common cause of access to emergency room [1]. One of the sites of impact is pharynx. FFB are difficult to identify on plain radiography, depending on their size, bone calcification, and the type of fish. Computed tomography (CT) is the …

Preliminary Results of Tocilizumab and Interferon α-2β Treatment of SARS-CoV-2

1. Abstract Seven patients receiving Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and Zinc (Zn) for CoVid-19 with PCR positive results were admitted to hospital after failing to improve. Following NCT04349410 protocol and failure to improve with elevated interleukin-6 and ferritin levels, patient’s treatment was changed following measurement of Corona Virus Pneumonia (CVP). Follow up measurements of CVP confirmed improvement …

Fleming Inflammation and Cardiovascular Disease SARS-CoV-2 Proposed Treatment Protocol. Initial COVID Hydroxychloroquine Failure Responds to Interferon α-2β and Tocilizumab

1. Abstract Currently there is no established treatment protocol for SARS-2 (CoVid-19). Proponents of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) argue that early intervention may sufficiently prevent replication of the virus and avoid the need for hospitalization. In instances where viral replication continues and the patient develops CoViD pneumonia (CVP), such patients – particularly with comorbidities – are prone …
