CACIPLIQ20® was used to accelerate the healing process and stimulate the viability of flaps and skin grafts, thereby improving amputation outcomes. An excellent range of motion was achieved with hardly any contracture or scarring. Pain relief and reduced sensitivity was noted, while healing of bone and tendon also improved, resulting in functional recovery.
The current trend of managing maxillary tuberosity fractures is traumatic and results in the loss of bone and teeth. Treatment options that chose to retain the fractured segments and teeth have been perceived to be unfavorable. This case report shows that maxillary tuberosity fractures can be treated conservatively.
Although the patient with very severe aplastic anemia might be a fit elderly receiving standard therapy, there are factors which contribute to an adverse outcome such as severity of pancytopenia, absence of minor paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria clone and infective complications of therapy.
A matrix therapy agent marketed as CACIPLIQ20® showed marked improvement in the healing rate of hand infections, including functional recovery. It can be used at both earlier and later stages to promote faster healing and prevent an adverse outcome.
Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis is a rare but severe complication of dengue infection which carries a high mortality. This report highlights the importance of early recognition of this condition as prompt appropriate treatment improves outcomes.
Pulmonary arteriovenous malformation is a vascular anomaly that predisposes to complications of paradoxical embolization including stroke and brain abscess. Here, we present a case of brain abscess associated with pulmonary arteriovenous malformation.
Meckel's diverticulum (MD) is a rare congenital abnormality. Not all MD require resection. MD is resected when it is symptomatic; when it causes perforation, bleeding, or intestinal obstruction; or when malignancy is confirmed or suspected.
Cysts are a common finding of lymphocytic interstitial pneumonia (LIP) on imaging. Usually, they are limited in number and size. Tiny and numerous cysts of peribronchovascular distribution are less typical but a recognized appearance in LIP.
An untreated root canal infection usually stimulates the development of a radicular cyst. Nonsurgical root canal procedures and periapical surgery followed by placement of bone substitute will promote the healing process of the bony defect.
CACIPLIQ20® significantly improved the outcomes of severe burn injuries of the hand. Healing was accelerated, with little or no scarring, allowing for greater mobility over the joints and maintained suppleness. Functional recovery was achieved in all cases.
There is no known medicine for COVID-19, and thus, the clinical management is symptomatic. More than 80% people experience mild symptoms who can be treated at home for fever, sore throat, and cough. About 15% patients develop severe illness require O2.
The development of resistance to trastuzumab in HER2-positive gastroesophageal cancer remains a problem. The use of dual HER2 blockade to overcome this is a therapeutic strategy that should be researched more extensively.
Diagnostic imaging methods are normally required to make the preoperative diagnosis of adult intussusception. Furthermore, it helps to define the location and nature of the associated mass as lead point if present. Lipoma may appear as lesion of fat attenuation expressed in Hounsfield unit on CT scan.
Thorough clinical and radiographic evaluation of patient following orofacial trauma is indispensable for a successful outcome, and when the tooth fragment is available in a good condition, then fragment reattachment is the best choice of treatment.
Repeated experimental reinfection of two subjects indicates that Helicobacter pylori infection does not promote an immune response protective against future reinfection. Our results highlight the importance of preventing reinfection after eradication, through public health initiatives, and possibly treatment of family members. They indicate difficulties for vaccine development, especially therapeutic vaccines.
In endemic regions, include melioidosis in the routine differential diagnosis of neonates with respiratory distress, and consider early empirical ceftazidime treatment for neonates with worsening respiratory distress.
Berger's disease should be considered an imperative cause of renal dysfunction in thalassemia. This case highlights the importance of early diagnosis, clinicopathological correlation and prompt therapy in Berger's disease.
When planning extraction of teeth with poor prognosis especially lower first permanent molars, it is important to consider the timing of tooth removal and its effect on future occlusion to avoid interventions.
